BearCom Contributes to Worldwide Literacy Efforts

One of BearCom’s founding owners, Jill Jenkins, has been actively working to improve literacy. As the Director of International Literacy for BearCom Building Services, Jill’s efforts have made a difference not only in the United States, but also in other countries and regions throughout the world.

Jill graduated in 2009 with her Ph.D. in Education, with emphasis in Literacy, from the Graduate School of Education at George Mason University in Fairfax Virginia. Jill has been working to improve literacy as early as 1988 when she developed and managed an NGO, the Lawrence Latin American Refugee Committe, where she started teaching students English as a second language to refugees among many other services including finding homes, food and jobs for refugees. Since then, she has traveled the world, joined national and worldwide reading and literacy associations, authored books on literacy, conducted research in Africa on literacy, presented at literacy conferences, taught English as a second language courses, developed literacy programs to help teachers in third world countries improve literacy in their classrooms.

We commend Jill for her efforts, and she has fulfilled her responsibilities as Director of International Literacy well. BearCom will continue to support Jill as she continues to make a difference improving literacy throughout the world.

BearCom – Cleaning for Health and Hygiene

Cleaning for health and hygiene has been part of BearCom’s Mission Statement for years. How do we offer the highest quality janitorial services in Utah? We have designed our cleaning process, equipment, tools and chemicals to provide the most effective system for combating bacteria, viruses and mold in the workplace.

To receive a free estimate from BearCom, call 801-569-9500. For example, one component of our system is microfiber rags. Microfiber rags can remove up to 99% of bacteria from a surface without chemicals. We also use backpack vacuums with 4 stages of filtration. These vacuums remove up to 99.9% of bacteria and other contaminants. We also use hospital grade disinfectants throughout the facilities we clean.

A recent study at a school has shown that proper cleaning for health can reduce absenteeism by 50%, and similar studies at businesses show that proper cleaning for health can reduce absenteeism by 30% to 50%. To ensure that our cleaning methods really do kill and remove harmful contaminants, like bacteria, we also use a Luminometer to provide us with scientific data. The Luminometer measures bacteria and other harmful contaminants on a surface to help us understand just how clean or dirty a surface is.

Disinfecting Reduced Absenteeism by 50% in Ohio School Study

Have you ever wondered if disinfecting really made a difference? New studies now prove that correctly disinfecting surfaces increases worker productivity and decreases absenteeism.

One such study performed at an Ohio school shows us the difference proper disinfection can make. The study looked at the rates of gastroenterirtis and resperitory disease in an elementary school. The study compared classrooms which used disinfecting wipes at the end of the day on each desk and used alcohol gel sanitizer for hands. The study revealed that there was less incidence of gastroenteritis in intervention classrooms, fewer contaminated surfaces with norovirus, and lower concentrations of norovirus on those contaminated surfaces.

So the use of the disinfecting wipes reduced the detection of norovirus on surfaces in the classroom, and classrooms which did not use disinfecting wipes had a greater incidence of gastroenteritis. But the most significant discovery of this study was that absenteeism was reduced by 50% in classrooms using disinfecting wipes. What can we learn from this study? It really does matter if you properly disinfect. In fact, for businesses, properly disinfecting may make a big difference financially depending on the impact it may have on worker productivity and absenteeism. You need a company who understands the science of cleaning, and who knows how to properly disinfect your facility. BearCom knows how to clean for improved health and hygiene of our client’s facilities.
