KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Cleaning has a new meaning amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Housekeeping businesses such as Two Maids and a Mop in Overland Park are changing the way they do business in order to make sure that everyone is staying safe.

After making calls to the governor's office, they discovered that they were essential and were able to keep operations going.

Throughout the pandemic, the business has seen double to triple the number of inquiries than usual for both residential and commercial properties.

Although cleaning is their profession, the virus has forced them to make changes to how they conduct services.

"We wash our hands more frequently. We sanitize our hands before we enter and after we leave every home. We also started wearing the masks, once they were available to us, and we use this NeutralQ to disinfect after our regular cleaning process," said Tamela York, general manager at Two Maids and a Mop.

The NeutralQ product is EPA approved and York said all of her staff are trained on how to use the disinfectant.

York said she’s happy they were deemed an essential business so that they can continue to provide services throughout the pandemic.
