What is Office Disinfection Cleaning?

Office Disinfection Services vs Sanitation Services
The Difference between disinfection and sanitation is:
- By definition, sanitation is to clean the dirt from the surface. Sanitation drastically reduces the amount of germs. Illness is unlikely.
- Consequently, the act of disinfection by using specialized chemicals, and cleaning techniques, will kill bacteria, viruses and fungi, on surfaces. The result, transmission is prevented.

- First, our maid services will sanitize (clean) the surfaces. This step minimizes the amount of germs to lowest levels; making it unlikely someone will become ill.
- The second step, disinfection, kills viruses, bacteria, and fungi. Proper disinfection of surfaces will kill COVID-19.

Employers preparedness, response, and control plans for COVID-19 (CDC):
As an employer it is your duty to identify areas and job tasks with potential exposure to Coronavirus. Businesses employers are encouraged to use control measures to eliminate or reduce exposures.

Employer response to a COVID-19 exposure:

Which cleaner disinfects against COVID-19?
Any household cleaner with bleach or 70% alcohol kills the SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Careful not to mix the two together, as they can create chloroform, which can cause damage to most major organs. Another dangerous combination is hydrogen peroxide and vinegar, which creates peracetic acid.
The Environmental Protection Agency List N list the chemicals that are approved to kill COVID-19
Professional disinfection companies are careful with the use of bleach to clean up after exposure. As a rule, we use the chemicals on List N of the EPA database. The EPA does not recommend using bleach as a first resort, unless sterilization is desired. Generally, sterilization is appropriate for hospitals, or when people in the area are immune compromised, such as cancer patients.
