Effective cleaning and disinfection have never been more necessary in a country, and the world, still gripped by the coronavirus pandemic. Unfortunately, typical cleaning services won’t get the job done with this super virus. You need to ensure that your home and business are as clean as can be, which means you might want to consider searching the internet for “professional disinfecting services near me.”
Working alongside a coronavirus cleaning company like Aftermath-Bio could be the difference you need to stay clean, stay safe, and stay healthy during the pandemic.
Here are four of the most frequently asked questions about coronavirus disinfection services.
What Cleaners Get Rid of Coronavirus?
The CDC and EPA make it easy to keep track of which cleaners are approved for removing coronavirus from surfaces. The organizations keep a list of cleaners dubbed “List N” that covers all of the approved products.
Most people are aware that Lysol hand sanitizer is effective. Lysol was the first product to be added to the list. However, that’s only good for your hands. The full list includes six Clorox products, including Clorox disinfectant wipes and Pine-Sol, which was recently added to the N List. The list also includes 16 products from Lonza and six from Lysol, including the aforementioned hand sanitizer.
Four other companies have one product each on the list. The full list is quite extensive so be sure to take a look and see what’s on there.
We stock and use a wide variety of cleaning products for our coronavirus cleaning. All of the products we use are approved by the EPA and designated effective against SARS-COV-2, the virus that causes coronavirus.
Why Do the Cleaning Solutions Need to be EPA-Approved?
There are several reasons to use products approved by the EPA. The first is that you are guaranteed to be using a safe and effective product.
Any company can claim that their products remove coronavirus. Without official verification, however, those products are nothing but snake oil. It would be both disingenuous and morally wrong to lie to people about something as serious as coronavirus prevention.
The N List contains over 490 disinfectants that are presumed effective based on testing against eliminating other diseases and have now been tested against SARS-COV-2. The manufacturers conduct tests that are verified by the EPA. Any cleaners approved by the EPA should be considered safe and effective for removing coronavirus and other pathogens.
Safety is another important factor when choosing EPA-approved products. Some chemicals that effectively eliminate the virus are not safe for use around people. They make good industrial cleaners but aren’t safe for homes and businesses. They may also be dangerous to handle without proper training and equipment.
The products tested and approved by the EPA come with full guidelines on where – and how – to use them. If you’re looking to eliminate coronavirus in your home without risking your family’s health and safety, you should stick with products from List N.
More products are being tested and approved all the time, so keep an eye on the list of EPA-approved coronavirus cleaning products.
What Kind of Equipment Needs to be Worn when Cleaning?
Standard PPE (personal protective equipment) is a must when cleaning for coronavirus. The EPA recommends wearing gowns and disposable gloves during the cleaning process, including when handling and removing trash.
Please note you may need further PPE based on the cleaning and disinfectant products you use and whether or not there’s a risk of splashing. Please be sure to remove and dispose of gloves and gowns safely to avoid contamination. It’s no good to wear protective equipment only to infect yourself with it right at the end.
At Aftertime-Bio, we take coronavirus cleaning more seriously than just the standard. Our technicians are as safe as possible and wear all the equipment they could possibly need. We equip our technicians with fully-encapsulated personal protection equipment, including full-face respirators. We want everyone involved in the process, including you, to be as safe as possible.
When Do I Need to Hire Covid Cleaning Services?
The short answer to this question is that there’s no such thing as a bad time to hire covid cleaning services. There are several times when it becomes almost important, if not essential, to call cleaning services. These are:
Before opening back up
Many businesses have been shut down due to coronavirus lockdowns. Whether it’s because they were deemed non-essential or because supply chains were lost, many physical locations have been closed. If your business plans on opening again soon, we recommend calling a cleaning service to give the place a once-over.
After a suspected or confirmed case in the building
Has someone in the building recently tested positive for coronavirus? Do you have suspected infections and don’t want to take the risk? If so, give Aftermath Bio a call and we’ll help disinfect the area. We’ll focus on surfaces and objects the person would have touched, but we’ll also cover everything else to be safe.
