How does ACU clean and disinfect facilities?

WFF Facility Services (ACU's custodial cleaning vendor) uses an EPA-registered, healthcare rated disinfectant to daily clean campus buildings to include athletic and residence life facilities. Emphasis has been placed on high-volume touchpoints (door handles, table/desktops, light switches, etc.), to include public and common-area restrooms. An increased cleaning of these touchpoints has been in place since October to reduce health risks during flu +season. Additionally, we have expanded use of our electrostatic disinfection process along with enhancing other preventative measures to further mitigate risks of the novel coronavirus. We will continue to monitor recommendations from the CDC for preventing the spread of the virus.

Students living in on-campus housing are expected to clean their rooms and any private bathrooms in their residences.

It is also recommended that departments contact the Office of Risk Management at risk@acu.edu or by calling 325-674-6142 to obtain single-use disinfectant wipes for touchpoints within their workspaces.

There are also hand sanitizer dispensers wall mounted throughout campus in common areas. Hand sanitizer can help prevent the spread of the virus, though the proper hand-washing technique is deemed to be more effective by the CDC.
