Cleaning and Disinfection Recommendations

Cleaning and disinfection surfaces can help reduce the risk of infection in your workplace or home. Cleaning usually refers to the removal of visible dirt or particles; nevertheless, the cleaning procedure and some cleaning solutions also disinfect the area. Disinfection refers to the process of controlling, deactivating, or killing infectious agents like viruses and bacteria. If you both clean and disinfect a surface or object regularly, you can further lower the risk of spreading infection. 

Can Cleaning Help in Preventing the Coronavirus From Spreading at Your Workplace or Home?

According to the CDC, the following tips can help prevent COVID-19 from spreading in commercial buildings:

  1. Clean high-touch items at least once a day. Pens, counters, shopping carts, tables, doorknobs, light switches, handles, stair rails, elevator buttons, desktops, keyboards, phones, toilets, faucets, and sinks are all examples of high-touch surfaces. Consider cleaning more regularly in high-traffic areas or indoor settings. That means places like offices, classrooms, or commercial facilities, to help protect your customers and personnel from infection.
  2. It is recommended to clean and disinfect:
  • Soft surfaces such as carpet, rugs, and drapes using a product containing soap or detergent. Any other type of cleaner appropriate for use on these surfaces is also good.
  • Laundries such as clothing, towels, and linens
  • Electronics such as tablets, touch screens, keyboards, remote controls, and ATM machines.
  • Outdoor areas such as on sidewalks, roads, or groundcover.
  1. It is recommended by CDC to always wash your hands for 20 seconds with water and soap. Especially after cleaning and/or after removing your gloves, wash your hands quickly.
  2. If a sick person or someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 has recently visited your facilities, you clean and disinfect the area.
  3. To avoid spreading the infection to others in your community, always wear a face mask.
  4. If you work in healthcare or you are a frontliner, make sure you have EPA-registered disinfectants, sanitizing solutions, and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) like gloves and masks on hand to avoid infection from any kind of viruses.
  5. To ensure that your facility is safe for employees and visitors, hire a cleaning professional. Only a professional who specializes in coronavirus cleaning can identify how to clean and disinfect surfaces properly. Cleaning professionals are on the front lines of infection prevention and surface disinfection. They employ hospital-grade, professional techniques that are particular to COVID-19.
