COVID-19 Cleaning - What Makes a Difference?

The pandemic has changed many of our routines and lifestyle choices; one of the most notable being our cleaning habits and protocols. COVID has proved itself as a force to be reckoned with in terms of its spread and lethality. One of the main things this virus has shown us is that we have been living in a world filled with lackluster cleaning.

Firstly, it is essential to note the difference between cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting and the best use for each of them:

Cleaning is the process of removing dirt and bacteria, not necessarily alienating them. This should be performed on surfaces routinely throughout the day. Make sure your employees are washing their hands frequently and adequately.

Disinfecting is actively killing germs that are on surfaces, this should be done when bacteria is found or suspected on a specific surface.

Sanitizing is the process of using both actions to cut down the number of germs on surfaces.

So, What Works Best?

Whether it is at your business or at home, you will want to make sure you are cleaning all high touch surfaces, these include:

  •       Keyboards
  •       Remotes
  •       Desktop Mice
  •       Tables
  •       Doorknobs
  •       Handles
  •       Toilets
  •       Faucets
  •       Railings

These frequently trafficked areas should be cleaned at least 3 or more times per day to ensure the limitation of spreading the virus and/or other harmful bacteria. Call your trusted SERVPRO to get the job done right and keep your company safe.
