Why you should sanitize for the Coronavirus

One of the worst issues that can arise from the pandemic is hospitals being overcrowded. If you haven’t heard of the term “Flatten the curve” by now, its a meme that shows that hospitals have a limit to how many people they can take care of at one tiime. If their are to many people that need to seek medical attention because of the virus that can overwhelm the hospitals meaning that they can’t properly provide medical attention to all of those that need it.

Clean Businesses mean lack of COVID spread

People are currently careful of what they touch and when they wash their hands, or they should be. But even with most people aware of virus and how it spreads, people showing no symptoms can go out and help spread the virus. Having proper sanitation methods in place so that your business is getting cleaned on a regular basis can help stop the spread of the coronavirus.

Some of the public service areas we can sanitize include:

Government buildings
Office buildings
Playgrounds & parks
Public meeting spaces

Shopping Districts

Cleaning, Sanitizing, and Disinfecting: Is There a Difference?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the differences between cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting are as follows:

  • Cleaning removes dirt, germs, and other contaminants found on surfaces and objects. While the cleaning process removes germs, it does not necessarily kill them. Instead, it reduces the amount of germs in a given surface, thereby lowering the chance of spreading infection.
  • Sanitizing reduces the amount of germs in a given surface and kills more bacteria, lowering them to a safe level as deemed by public health standards. Sanitation, though, may not eliminate all viruses.

Disinfecting uses chemicals to kill germs, pathogens, and microorganisms. Although significantly reduces the risk of spreading infection, the disinfection process does not necessarily clean dirt and other impurities from surfaces or objects.

The Right Way to Clean and Disinfect

Fighting the spread of germs and viruses such as COVID-19 requires the proper execution of cleaning and disinfecting surfaces or objects. Washh follows the guidelines as recommended by the CDC.

  • When cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting surfaces or objects, we always wear disposable gloves. These gloves go straight to the trash after each session.

Using Fogger for COVID Decontamination

  • When using reusable gloves, our gloves are dedicated for the sole purpose of cleaning and disinfecting surfaces and objects for COVID-19. Reusable gloves go through a cleaning and disinfection procedure as instructed by the manufacturer.
  • Before disinfection takes place, we clean dirty surfaces with water and soap or detergent.
  • We disinfect surfaces using the following:
    • EPA-registered disinfectants
    • Alcohol solutions with 70% alcohol or above
    • Diluted household bleach solutions, if suitable for the surface or object (5 tablespoons or 1/3 cup bleach per gallon of water)

Important Note: When we use diluted household bleach solutions, we follow the manufacturer’s application guidelines and ventilation procedures. We do not use expired products. We do not combine household bleach with other cleaning agents, especially ammonia.

Washh also makes use of fogging, a cleaning and disinfection procedure recommended by the CDC. We make sure to go through the proper pre-cleaning process and use EPA-registered “List N” cleaners to remain compliant with federal law.
