The thought of catching and spreading COVID-19 can be horrible, but there are products out there that can help slow the spread, when used in conjunction with good hygiene and physical distancing. For a commercial business large scale cleaning can be intimidating, but with the right gear it becomes easier. Here are some of our preferred ways of cleaning large scale areas to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
Know the different terms
When you’re looking into disinfectant equipment and products, there are three terms you’ll see everywhere. Let us explain what they are.
Cleaning removes germs, dirt, and visible scuffs from surfaces and objects. Cleaning involves using soap or detergent with water to physically remove germs from a surface. This method may not get all germs, but removing them helps lower risks of becoming infected.
Disinfecting kills germs on surfaces and objects. This works by using products with chemicals on them mixed specifically to kill germs. This may not clean all visible signs of dirt but will further lower the risk of spreading infections.
Sanitizing lowers the number of germs on surfaces and objects to safe levels. It cleans and disinfects surfaces to lower the risk of spreading infection, but isn’t as effective as cleaning and disinfecting.
How to properly disinfect
Always wear gloves when cleaning any surfaces. Disposable gloves are safer, and never share gloves with other workers. Reusable gloves can be disinfected with detergent and used again.
If you plan on cleaning and disinfecting, you must clean first then disinfect or use a combined detergent disinfectant. When you’re cleaning, always clean from the cleanest surface to the dirtiest to reduce the amount of germs spread. Equip yourself with the best anti-covid products in Australia for the best results.
Clean and disinfect high traffic areas
If you want to keep your building sanitised everyday, there are various areas you need to maintain. Surfaces that are touched often such as desks, countertops, doorknobs, computer keyboards, phones and handles. Bathrooms should also be cleaned and disinfected daily as per standard cleaning procedures from the local government.
For large scale cleaning, the proper tools and equipment can make the cleaning process much easier. Take the disinfectant sprayer from Climate Australia, a commercial all-purpose sprayer and mister developed to fight viruses.
