When is COVID disinfection necessary?
Current CDC guidelines recommend that a facility be disinfected after someone who has been sick or tests positive for COVID has been in your space within the previous day. The areas occupied by these individuals should be closed for business until disinfection has occurred. The purpose of COVID disinfection is to eliminate any virus that may have been introduced into your facility by the sick person.
What’s Involved in COVID Disinfection?
COVID disinfection involves the thorough application of medical grade disinfectant products to all surfaces within your facility. This is accomplished via the use of an electrostatic spraying machine, which produces a fine mist of disinfectant particles that have been charged with static electricity to cling to surfaces just like a balloon sticks to a wall after you rub it on your hair. The disinfectant product used is extremely strong, with the ability to kill the COVID-19 virus as well as many other common viruses such as the flu or norovirus.
Additionally, best practices for COVID disinfection include an additional level of attention be paid to high touch surfaces, such as countertops, door knobs, keypads, and more. This means these surfaces are cleaned, sanitized, and disinfected with medical grade products.
Who Should Be Providing COVID Disinfection Services?
Obviously as a business owner, you want everyone to be safe. However, additionally, you want your business facilities to be closed for as short a time as possible. The safest, fastest way to accomplish proper COVID disinfection is to call in a professional cleaning company. They have the equipment, skills, and expertise to get the job done quickly. At the same time, neither you nor any of your employees are placed at additional health risk doing this cleaning on your own. From a cost basis, it makes a lot of sense to hire a professional – the electrostatic spraying machines alone represent a minimum $1,500 investment, and that’s without any disinfectant product.
