Disinfecting and Cleaning Protocol to Reduce Absenteeism, Focus on Academic Achievement

Gulf States Clean Guard, the fastest-growing total-facility disinfecting service company in the Southeast, is partnering with schools to aid in reducing the spread of infection in their buses. The result is lower absenteeism, helping students, faculty, and staff focus on academic achievement.

Each year, school buses transport millions of students and travel billions of miles. While hauling students to and from their destinations is crucial, so is disinfecting. Most drivers are only required to sweep and pick up trash, leaving children exposed to many potentially life-threatening germs.

If school buses are made to focus on students’ safety when crossing the street, then why isn’t more being done for the amount of germs they are exposed to each day?

A student’s health is at risk each time he or she gets on a bus. School buses carry a variety of diseases and infections, including E. coli, mold, dirt particles from diesel fumes, norovirus, MRSA, staph, and salmonella. Gulf States Clean Guard is working every day to “break the chain of infection.”

Yet with flu season coming, Gulf States Clean Guard has a solution. Their protocol is coined “clean, disinfect, and protect,” and it is based on their three distinct phases of infection prevention.

The first phase of protocol consists of a normal cleaning routine. There are two reasons to clean: for appearance and for health. Gulf States Clean Guard uses a non-toxic, all-natural formula that is powerful enough to disinfect hospitals, yet is safe enough to use around kids. It also won’t harm buses. The formula prevents mold and mildew while eliminating odors. What truly makes this formula so unique is how quickly and easily it can clean an entire bus. After normal cleaning, the bus is disinfected in just a few minutes with a simple fogger. Students can return to the bus as soon as 60 minutes after cleaning and fogging are complete. This process is safe and non-hazardous.

Phase 2 is disinfecting. Gulf States Clean Guard uses all hospital-grade disinfectants. It's simple to use the spray-on/leave-on method, which helps kill many pathogens, viruses, bacteria, and germs

The third phase is protection. All of our products create a residual protection for all surfaces, and most create a barrier preventing the growth of viruses, bacteria, and germs. Gulf States Clean Guard’s protocol doesn't stop with the bus itself. Another key aspect of their focus on health and safety is hand sanitization. Creating a hand sanitizing routine can help eliminate the spread of infection between students. Gulf States Clean Guard offers an innovative hand sanitizer different from anything else on the market. Unlike many dangerous, alcohol-based hand sanitizers, this one is alcohol-free, kills 99.9-99.9999 percent of germs, including norovirus, and provides hours of protection.

Make sure you use Gulf States Clean Guard to make your buses safe and germ-free for students. Together, we can reduce the sick days and make buses a safer, cleaner environment.
