           Proactive Cleaning Services and Tips to Remember

Cleaning Guidelines and Hot Spots

Whether indoor or out, when preparing to clean the surfaces at your small business, the use of disposable gloves is imperative. Cleaning with soap and water is a decent start, but not effective unless followed up with a disinfectant. Soap and water can reduce the number of germs, dirt, and impurities on a surface, but only a disinfectant can kill germs and viruses on a surface, says SERVPRO.

High touch surfaces around your business may include, but are not limited to:

  • Doorknobs and handles
  • Light switches
  • Tables
  • Counters
  • Desks
  • Phones
  • Electronics
  • Toilets
  • Faucets
  • Sinks

Sanitizing vs. Disinfecting

Sanitizing and disinfecting are often thought the same, says SERVPRO—but to the contrary. At best, a rigorous cleaning will remove dust, debris, and surface germs, but sanitizing and disinfecting are what really work with pathogens like COVID-19.

Sanitizing is held to the standard of killing 99.9% of bacteria identified on the product’s label—however, it doesn’t target viruses. Disinfectants destroy or deactivate both bacteria and viruses identified on the product’s label, making it your best option for cleaning in your business.
