Coverall conducted extensive evaluation and testing of numerous products and determined that Ecolab''s products met or exceeded all of Coverall''s stringent standards and systems, the release stated.
According to the release, in addition to cleaning compounds, Coverall will exclusively offer Ecolab''s comprehensive hand hygiene system to its franchisees, as well as specify the new Ecolab product line for its touch-free restroom cleaning protocol.
Peter J. Sheldon, vice president of operations for Coverall, said: "Our Health-Based Cleaning System protocol is highly effective for killing germs and bacteria, removing soil and eliminating harmful pathogens. With the addition of Ecolab''s products and hand hygiene system, which greatly helps to minimize recontamination, our franchisees can now offer their customers a complete closed-loop solution that can save them money by reducing productivity loss due to employee sick time. We are extremely pleased to be able to partner with an industry leader like Ecolab, whose line of Green Seal-certified cleaning products will add value to the Coverall service proposition."
Surface disinfection combined with proper hand hygiene has been demonstrated to represent one of the best defenses against the spread of potentially harmful organisms in indoor environments, the release noted.
Coverall has more than 9,000 franchisees serving over 50,000 customers in many vertical industries such as health care, food service, retail, fitness and recreational facilities as well as commercial office buildings, the release added.
