It goes without saying that we are currently in the midst of a battle with a world-wide virus. The entire world is having to learn to live with and fight against Covid-19 and here in the USA, things do appear to be somewhat bleak.
In Philadelphia, cases of Covid-19 are remaining quite high. So, what can we do about it? We all have a part to play in the fight against Covid-19, and for commercial properties and businesses, the answer could lie with proper cleaning techniques. Where do we start? Let’s take a look at how proper cleaning of commercial premises can help to stop the spread of Covid-19.
There is a difference between cleaning and disinfecting
One of the most important things that you need to learn when it comes to cleaning at the moment, is that there is a difference between the act of cleaning and disinfecting. Cleaning will clean a surface, removing the dust and dirt. It will not, however, remove the germs that can build up. Disinfecting, on the other hand, will need to be done with a specialist disinfectant. Whilst this may not clean the surface, what it will do is kill the germs that can live there.
The equipment itself will be clean
When you use a professional cleaning company, you will be getting them to use their own equipment to clean your premises. The important thing here is that they will ensure that the tools that they use are clean and sanitary before they come to you.
If you cleaned yourself, or your employees were in charge, then they may use equipment that you have on your premises. There is a much lower chance that they will sanitize and clean these between the cleaning efforts, which will mean that they are actually just moving around the germs rather than removing them.
Every surface will be cleaned
Covid-19 can live on surfaces and it is hugely surprising just how many surfaces we will touch on a daily basis. When you use a professional cleaning company, they know where the most traffic will be, therefore, the places that need cleaning the most. That said, in these times, they will also be able to ensure that every single surface is cleaned, just in case they have been touched at some point.
At Team Clean, we use the Clorox Total 360® to disinfect and sanitize to the highest standards. Using an innovative electrostatic sprayer combined with a dedicated disinfectant or sanitizing solution, we can cover larger areas faster and more cost-effectively than ever before.
Now you know, the correct cleaning of premises can really make the difference when it comes to Covid-19 as well as other viruses and germs too. You might not be a cleaning expert, which means that you need to employ a company who knows what to do. That way, you can be sure that you are protecting your employees, your customers and of course, your business too.
