The Importance of Covid-19 Cleaning & Disinfecting in The Workplace
Based on what is currently known about COVID-19 and about similar coronaviruses that cause SARS and MERS, spread from person-to-person happens most frequently among close contact (within 6 ft.) by way of respiratory droplets. Current evidence also suggests that the virus may remain viable for hours to days on surfaces made from a variety of materials.
Rad Cleaning Solutions provides professional coronavirus (COVID-19) cleaning & disinfecting services in a variety of work environments in order to curb infection. Delivering the highest professional standards possible, we provide rapid response 24/7, so you and your employees can have peace of mind.
Cleaning visibly dirty surfaces followed by disinfection is a best practice measure for the prevention of COVID-19 and other viral respiratory illnesses in workplace settings according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control.
The CDC recommends routine cleaning and disinfecting high-touch areas such as offices, bathrooms, and common areas as well as shared electronic equipment (like tablets, touch screens, keyboards, remote controls, phones, and ATM machines), elevator buttons, doorknobs, desks, countertops, and any other frequently touched surfaces.
Cleaning and Disinfecting
Cleaning refers to the removal of dirt and impurities, including germs, from surfaces. Cleaning alone does not kill germs. But by removing the germs, it decreases their number and therefore any risk of spreading infection.
Disinfecting works by using EPA-registered household disinfectant, to kill germs on surfaces. This process does not necessarily clean dirty surfaces or remove germs. But killing germs remaining on a surface after cleaning further reduces any risk of spreading infection.
What’s A Disinfectant Product?
There are many products you can use to superficially clean hard surfaces, such as warm, soapy water, vinegar water solution sprays, or even essential oil solution sprays.
However, these products haven’t been scientifically proven to effectively disinfect a surface from contaminants such as the coronavirus, influenza, norovirus, etc.
Below are common active ingredients found in the CDC and EPA recommended disinfectant cleaning products that can kill many viruses and bacteria (view the all-inclusive list on the EPA’s website):
- Ethanol alcohol (60%-90%)
- Hydrogen peroxide
- Isopropyl alcohol (60%-90%)
- Quaternary Ammonium
- Sodium hypochlorite
Cleaning product ingredients should never be mixed unless recommended by the manufacturer or the CDC.
Below is a list of everyday cleaning products that when mixed, can cause dangerous reactions and/or toxic gases:
- Bleach and Vinegar
- Bleach and Ammonia
- Bleach and Toilet Bowl Cleaner
- Bleach and Rubbing Alcohol
- Hydrogen Peroxide and Vinegar
