In the grips of a pandemic it's no wonder there's an additional emphasis on a clean house or business. There are plenty of services that provide deep cleaning. With this guide it's clear, now is a good time to look into a top to bottom sanitisation of all surfaces.
Disinfection services are designed to neutralise pathogens. These are potentially harmful bacteria that could pose a threat to the home and workplace. A disinfection service is always done by a professional. The reason for this is that the process involves potentially dangerous chemical agents used in the process of cleaning.
These specialised cleaners clean the surface before starting disinfection. This preparation reduces dirt, grime and assists with the process of disinfection. It not only kills the germs, but reduces the chance of spreading infection as well.
To clean the hard surfaces, normally the following disinfectants are used:
These products are usually required to remain on the surface for 3-5 minutes to fully disinfect the surface.
Because this kind of cleaning is so specialised it is not likely to get a reliable recommendation from friends or acquaintances. For that reason it's recommended that you conduct strong research into the topic and only select companies that have multiple positive customer reviews. The most professional businesses might have a portfolio of their services on their website. Some important information you will need is their pricing, timing and whether you can remain at home or work during the clean.
Before getting your business or home disinfected it's wise to put away valuables like electronics, although if these items also need to be disinfected discuss this with the cleaning company beforehand. Depending on the size of the home or business you may also need to discuss alternative accomodation or working arrangements, so be sure to raise this with the cleaning service too.
How long a disinfection will take depends on a number of factors. These include the size of the house or property, the size of any wet areas and the extent of the cleaning required. Disinfecting a small apartment or area might take less time than a whole restaurant or office. The time a disinfection will take can also depend on how extensive the cleaning process will be and how long any chemical irritants may take to subside. What this means is it could be anywhere from a matter of hours to potentially days.
It would be best to consider the following before hiring disinfection services:
It isn't necessary to be at home or at your business during the disinfection process. In fact, it might be more convenient for the cleaners to disinfect your house or office without people around. In addition to that, some chemicals may mean that it is not safe to be at home.
A disinfection clean is a process designed to neutralise all pathogens and germs on every surface. As far as is possible, the goal of a disinfection clean is to sterilise the property. A deep clean is also an extensive clean. However, the purpose is to thoroughly clean all surfaces removing all dirt and dust.
