Increased Vigilance with the Emergence of Stronger Viruses

Increased Vigilance with the Emergence of Stronger Viruses

2021 has been another tumultuous year for Malaysians. As we approach the last month of 2021, Malaysians begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel as things are slowly regaining a semblance of normalcy which many have desperately craved. The number of Covid-19 cases in the country has taken a turn for the better with a steady decrease in the number of active cases. However, with the ease in travel restrictions and more freedom in movement, it is not time to let our guard down. In fact, the government has predicted that there will be a rise in Covid-19 cases, in part due to interstate travel.

With the re-opening of the economy and relaxation of SOPs for dining out, we still need to be mindful that we are not yet out of the woods. Reports from the World Health Organization (WHO) have indicated that there is an emergence of stronger and more infective variants of the coronavirus – such as the Omicron, Delta, Lambda, Mu and Zeta variants. These variants have varying degrees of infectivity and carriers of these variants may or may not be asymptomatic. 

The Delta and Omicron variants have the highest transmission rate with potentially more severe infections compared to other variants. The vaccinated population can also still be at risk of contracting Covid-19, albeit with mild symptoms and a quicker recovery period.

Reducing transmission through established and proven disease control methods is crucial to reduce the occurrence of mutations that have negative public health implications. It is imperative that we educate our loved ones, especially our school-going children, the importance of something as basic as good old regular handwashing. It is also important that we always carry a hand sanitizer when soap and water is not readily available.

While cleaning procedures remain largely the same and plenty of cleaning resources, trends and guidelines can be obtained online, it could be overwhelming to sift through all the information that may be oversimplified or even conflicting at times. Proper sanitization is constantly at the top of mind and engaging a professional cleaning service for effective cleaning and disinfection is prudent, now more than ever.

Since the start of the pandemic, we have observed increased time and money spent on cleaning and disinfecting. In addition, making professional cleaning and disinfecting efforts visible will be key in gaining back the public’s trust. They want to know they’re being protected in your premises. We have also seen increased popularity in new cleaning innovations such as the electrostatic spraying technology which works wonders in disinfecting all types of surfaces, including hard to reach crevices.

Keeping up to date with the latest guidelines and regulations

Throughout the pandemic, we at maclean have been consistently updating ourselves with information regarding the guidelines and regulations issued by the government in executing our cleaning procedures as part of our service excellence. 

With over 40 years of experience, providing consistent and reliable service to our clients is of paramount importance to us. Therefore, we are dedicated to ensuring that our management and teams adhere to the latest recommendations by the Kementerian Kesihatan Malaysia (KKM) as well as effective guidelines from international bodies such as National Environment Agency (NEA) of Singapore, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) of the United States.

Additionally, we continuously take proactive measures to ascertain that we are not at the risk of exposure to the coronavirus, especially in our efforts to remain vigilant in curbing the spread of the newer strains. All of maclean’s cleaning crews are experienced, trained and equipped with the most efficient cleaning techniques and innovation in achieving a sanitized, virus-free environment. These cleaning experts are professionals in dealing with the different types of contamination, dirt and viruses. Our Standard Operating Procedures are as below:

  • maclean strictly follows the cleaning and disinfecting guidelines set out by Kementerian Kesihatan Malaysia (KKM) while also constantly updating and arming ourselves with key learnings from global organizations such as WHO, CDC, EPA and NEA.

  • Almost all our cleaning crew are fully vaccinated and have observed the two-week post-vaccination period. They are also equipped with the appropriate PPEs according to guidelines set by KKM.
  • We employ the use of our 100-points Service Audit Process, where we ensure our cleaning services meet the minimum standards of acceptable performance (MSAP) aligned with our client’s needs and expectations.
