Midyear Disinfection Service Keeps Your Business Clean and Free of Toxins

Midyear Disinfection Service Keeps Your Business Clean and Free of Toxins

Midway through the year is a great time to consider a more comprehensive cleaning service like a disinfection service. By this time, any scheduled spring cleaning and renovating has been completed, and many businesses are experiencing a minor lull during the summer. It’s also a great time to prepare for the flu season that is just around the corner. This type of service can include cleaning of high-touch surfaces and all horizontal and vertical spaces for a much deeper clean than usual. A disinfection clean should include the following.

Use of EPA-Approved Disinfectants

Professional cleaning services will use EPA-approved disinfectants that have broad spectrum effectiveness against a wide range of pathogens, including viruses, bacteria, and fungi. These disinfectants are safe for use in various environments, including offices, schools, healthcare facilities, and public spaces. They contain regulated ingredients with detailed usage instructions which include proper dilution rates, contact times, and safety precautions ensuring they are used correctly and safely. EPA approval also means that everything is broken down into non-toxic components not known to harm the ecosystem.

Proper Application Techniques

Technicians will be trained in proper disinfectant application techniques to ensure maximum efficacy. This includes the amount of time a disinfectant needs to remain wet on a surface to be effective and using the correct concentration of disinfectant. Proper application also includes taking into account the safety of the person doing the cleaning by handling the disinfectant properly and wearing PPE.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Cleaning staff will wear appropriate PPE, such as gloves, masks, and sometimes gowns or coveralls, as a barrier against pathogens to protect themselves and prevent cross-contamination during the cleaning process. PPE can also be a requirement for compliance with health regulations, including OSHA standards and public health guidelines from the CDC.

Targeted High-Traffic Areas

While high traffic areas may get cleaned more frequently, they don’t always get disinfected more frequently. Paying special attention to high-traffic and high-touch areas that are more likely to harbor pathogens significantly decreases health risks.

Regular disinfection provides peace of mind for both employees and customers. Knowing that your facility is clean and safe can enhance confidence and trust in your business, especially in the context of ongoing health concerns. Professional disinfection services can also provide documentation or certification of cleaning to help in proving compliance with health regulations or to reassure employees and customers that you take cleanliness seriously. It is best to add occasional disinfectant cleanings to ongoing maintenance plans to keep your facility consistently clean and disinfected.
