In the current state of the world, someone who has the coronavirus could vary likely pass through a local store, warehouse, office, school etc.
When this happens, the building is typically closed, followed by a deep cleaning carried out by a commercial cleaning professional trained in the proper procedure for effective disinfection.
This happens because by thoroughly disinfecting and cleaning the area, it will help to get rid of the virus and prevent other people from being infected by it. We know that the coronavirus is spread from one person to another through personal contact.
Typically, other people are infected when they inhale the air and droplets expelled by a sick person when they sneeze, cough and breathe. However, these infected droplets also tend to land on various surfaces and sticks to them and the virus has been found to live for many days on these surfaces.
However, by deep cleaning the surface, it will kill the virus. Even though the term, “deep clean” sounds scientific, there is no particular definition.
According to Evergreen Commercial Cleaning Services, “In order to deep clean, a mechanical sprayer needs to be used or a thermal fogger that sprays the disinfectant onto the surface and the air. Once this is done, the surfaces need to be thoroughly wiped. A deep clean involves removing all of the items from each room, disinfecting each one thoroughly and then replacing each item back into their respective room”.
There have been warnings against other competitors who only clean and wipe areas that get touched or handled frequently such as handles, doorknobs etc. These companies do not even ensure that their cleaners and workers use protective gear!
With that said, there are health experts that say cleaning extensively using alcohol or bleach products and soap is enough to clean and you do not need to use special or particular cleaning procedures.
However, this has not stopped many people from calling for deep cleaning even when many employees are now working at home.
As various gyms, restaurants, bars and other types of businesses close, the demand for professional cleaning is expected to increase. This is due to the fact that these buildings can be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected once there is no one in them.
There is a high probability that just about all businesses will be shut down at some point. When this occurs, there will be many more people calling us to clean their business buildings.
In the event that a particular building was visited by people with the coronavirus, then the workers might use protective suits, full face respirators and other gear. However, respirators and booties are not needed as a surgical mask or face shield is sufficient. It is essential that everyone does not go overboard with cleaning.
The constant use of antimicrobial cleaning agents can cause resistance and result in the creation of super bugs.
So, simply wash your hands regularly and disinfect surfaces that are used, but do not go overboard as constant sterilization of everything is not necessary.
