COVID-19 has drastically changed the landscape of nearly everything in 2020. From business practices to social shifts, COVID-19 has changed nearly everything. COVID disinfecting services are a service vastly growing in popularity. These services can assist the average business and homeowner in protecting themselves, their employees, loved ones, and customers.
United Water Restoration Group, a company that provides COVID disinfecting services, would like to over their importance and give you more knowledge on them. While disinfecting services may not be new, the CDC has crafted specific guidelines to adhere to for COVID disinfecting services. When properly provided, COVID disinfecting services provide your home or business with a deep clean that helps ensure the safety of those entering the property.
What Are COVID Disinfecting Services?
COVID disinfecting services are similar to other disinfecting services and cleaning services. The CDC has published specific guidelines regarding COVID-19. During normal circumstances, there are still several key differences between disinfecting services and cleaning services. While cleaning services provide surface cleanliness, these services typically don’t provide in-depth, deep cleaning.
Disinfecting services take the first few steps of regular cleaning services, such as washing surfaces with soap and water, and adds extra steps. Once we wipe down the area, we apply EPA approved chemicals that are created to kill viruses and bacteria. Though these services use toxic chemicals, these chemicals are cleaned off after their work is accomplished.
COVID disinfecting services follow extra steps and guidelines to ensure that the novel virus is held at bay and killed. There are specific types of disinfectants used specifically to kill the COVID-19 virus. These special types of disinfectants are considered class N disinfectants.
COVID disinfecting services utilize these special disinfectants alongside others to ensure the home or business is clear of any virus or bacteria. Our technicians deep clean the entire home or business, getting every nook and cranny, every tight spot, and every hard-to-reach-spot in the property.
When Should You Use COVID Disinfecting Services?
Whether you’re a business or homeowner, you’re likely wondering when is the time to utilize these services. These services are typically best utilized after a major social gathering or after high foot traffic. You can have COVID disinfecting services done before events to add an extra layer of security to you and your guests.
Since these services provide your home or business with a deep, thorough clean, you can utilize them whenever. Deep cleans are recommended at least once a year for the average home or business. As time passes, particles such as pollutants and allergens collect around any property and can cause adverse health effects.
For someone with severe allergies, a property with high allergens can cause allergic reactions. Things such as seasonal allergies can cause major discomfort and cause further issues like sickness. COVID disinfecting services can help prevent build-up of bacteria, viruses, pollutants, and allergens.
Deep cleans should also be provided to certain items like furniture, drapes, and curtains. Cleaning these items of gunk or spill damage can help lengthen their longevity. These deep cleans can assist with saving money in the long term by helping these items stick around.
What Can You Expect From COVID Disinfecting Services
Though you’ve likely cleaned your home or business before, these services provide an extra layer of cleanliness. United Water Restoration Group’s disinfecting services look like the following:
Hard Surface Disinfection – We typically start by doing the easiest cleans first. Hard surfaces are easy to clean and can be done in a matter of minutes. For these objects, we wash them down with water and clean them with soap. After drying them off the soap, we wet the area once again and place disinfectant chemicals that will kill 99.99% of viruses and bacteria. Hard surfaces aren’t just floors and counter space, they are also the following items:
Door knobs, light switches, remotes, keyboards, desks, toilets, sinks, desks, and tables. These items are typically used on a daily basis and need regular cleaning even after medium traffic through a business or home. Smaller engagements still pose risk for a COVID-19 outbreak.
Soft Surfaces Disinfection – Soft surfaces, such as drapes, curtains, and furniture are all cleaned based on their manufacturer’s instructions. These items are more delicate than hard no surfaces and require more attention to detail. After cleaning the items, we begin the disinfection process. While these chemicals are toxic and require ventilation, once we are done cleaning the objects will have no chemical residue or toxic fumes.
