Hi, I’m Terisa R. Nelson, Founder/President/CEO of ENTEGRITY Janitorial Services, Inc., and MAID with ENTEGRITY.
I want to thank you for visiting our website and taking the first step towards obtaining a safe and healthy building/property with measurably effective cleaning services that focus on your health. As a retired nurse, I've discovered an unmet need for professional cleaning services that focused on public health FIRST.
Things have changed over the last few years in the cleaning industry. In the past, hiring professional cleaning companies to clean residential homes or commercial buildings for appearance was a primary focus.
Times have changed…
Today, You have to expect more from your cleaning service provider because your health is depending on it. It is a general belief that cleaning services is an unnecessary cost - not necessarily needed or valued. No longer can we continue to look at cleaning services in this way. When performed properly, cleaning plays a critical role in protecting public health by preventing the transmission of an ever growing array of harmful and in some cases deadly infectious diseases.
Today, it has become more apparent that the health of our communities is at RISK of contracting and spreading life threatening bacterial or viral infections. Therefore, we MUST change the way cleaning is perceived and performed. Now is the time to recognize the vital need for having health-based cleaning services in our living, working, social and learning spaces to eliminate the spread of illness causing GERMS. (that I've coined as CAI's - Community Acquired Infections, just like HAI's.) Everyone's health depends on it.
Something you may not be aware of.....
The world is running out of effective antibiotics fast!!!
What a frightening thing to hear !!!
According to the CDC, each year in the United States, at least 2 million people become infected with bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics and at least 23,000 people die each year as a direct result of these infections.
In 2016, a CBS news report stated, "Super-bugs are going to kill more than cancer by year 2050". "The spread of these lethal infections could lead to an extremely disturbing 10 million deaths every year, more people than currently die from cancer."
The cleaning industry is on the front lines of this battle, which means we must be held to higher cleaning processes and standards. We are doing just that.
Let me ask you a question? Would you trust a cleaning company who cleans your site with a focus of how good the building/property looks, or one that focuses on the health of you, its occupants, visitors and guest?
When it comes to community illnesses, Health-Based Cleaning can no
longer be an afterthought. A safe and healthy environment doesn't happen by accident, it happens on purpose. It is our purpose to make public health a priority one space and community at a time.
