Preventing infectious diseases such as COVID-19 from spreading in a built environment can be done with the help of cleaning and disinfecting companies. The first line of defense against the Coronavirus is to practice proper hand and respiratory hygiene.
The novel Coronavirus comes from a family of viruses that cause the COVID-19 disease, a respiratory illness that attacks the lungs and immune system.
Here are some ways cleaning and disinfection companies help slow the spread of the Coronavirus.
- They provide cleaning, disinfecting, and sanitizing
These providers know first and foremost the difference between cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting and provides all of these services.
Cleaning is the process of removing germs, dirt, and grub, from objects or surfaces. Cleaning is done by using detergent or soap. Cleaning does not kill germs but lowers their number.
Disinfecting, on the other hand, kills germs on surfaces or objects. Disinfecting usually involves the use of chemicals on surfaces or objects which further lowers the risk of contamination.
Lastly, sanitizing lowers germs or viruses on surfaces and objects to a safe level as per the public health standards. This can be done through either disinfection or cleaning.
2. They focus on cleaning & disinfecting high-touch surfaces and objects
Cleaning and disinfection companies focus on frequently touched areas. They sanitize and disinfect areas which people touch often. Examples include desks, countertops, doorknobs, computer keyboards, hands-on learning items, faucet handles, and phones.
Bathrooms sinks, toilets, faucets, and door knobs also require deeper cleaning and sanitization. When you hire disinfection experts, they clean soiled surfaces first and proceed to disinfecting them.
3. They know the best practices in routine cleaning and disinfecting
The process of cleaning and disinfecting doesn’t stop after one or two treatments. There should be a proper routine cleaning and disinfection and these companies know just how to do that.
Routine cleaning is needed because viruses and germs can stay on surfaces for hours and even days. To slow the spread of the Coronavirus, regular cleaning and disinfection is necessary.
Routine cleaning includes the following:
- Special cleaning and disinfecting processes
- Wiping down walls and ceilings
- Frequently using room air deodorizers
4. They know the proper methods of cleaning and disinfection
Disinfection companies are aware of proper methods of disinfection and cleaning. They specialize in delivering these methods with proper care and professionalism.
Disinfecting wipes are used on high-touch electronic items like phones and computers, keyboards, etc. They ensure surfaces are wet according to appropriate contact time, to make the disinfection effective.
5. They use safe and approved products
There are specific products and disinfectants that may be hazardous to your health in the long run. Companies that provide these two services are bound to use safe products without side effects, especially when treating residential areas.
They also pay attention to safety of use of certain disinfectants which entail wearing proper suit (PPE), gloves, and eyewear. They are trained with the proper way of using the disinfectant and memorized these instructions by heart.
6. They are trained with proper waste management
Cleaning and disinfection companies also deal with the after treatment. This includes disposing of biohazard waste (if needed) and gloves, disposable shoes, and eyewear/mask which may need sanitization.
They follow strict protocol in disposing of these materials immediately after use. Right after, they also follow suit with proper hand hygiene.
