Cleaning is always a priority for your business. Proper cleaning provides a safe environment to work in and a professional atmosphere for your clientele. Occasionally there may be times when a regular cleaning won’t be enough and you need something more comprehensive. When a major viral outbreak happens like the flu, SARS, Norovirus, and most recently, Covid-19, business owners need to step up their typical cleaning procedures to prevent transmission rates of these highly contagious viruses. Given the devastating toll Covid-19 has taken on both health and productivity, grant programs have been created around the country to help defray the costs of enhanced cleaning services. Let’s review Covid-19 cleaning grants available to businesses in Washington, D.C., Virginia, and Maryland.
Grants for Businesses to Clean against Covid-19
Everyone wants to prevent the spread of viral outbreaks, and given the contagiousness of Covid-19, state governments have begun offering assistance to businesses in the form of grants, to cover costs associated with the necessary Covid-19 cleaning protocols. Here are a few grants available to businesses in the Washington D.C., Virginia, and Maryland region.

Electrostatic & Fogging Disinfecting
Electrostatic and fogging disinfecting are advanced cleaning techniques that should be considered when cleaning during a viral outbreak. Electrostatic disinfecting is a touchless application of chemicals that reduces contamination risks and prevents disinfectant drips while also disrupting mold and bacterial outbreak colonies. Fogging disinfecting releases an even stream of sanitizing droplets into cubic volumes of air in your facilities, thereby reducing allergens and killing disease-causing germs.
To learn more about both cleaning applications, read our electrostatic cleaning and fogging disinfecting blog posts.
