Germs Travel Efficiently and Multiply Quickly, So Regular Surface Cleaning is Just the Start
If you knew how quickly germs multiply and travel, and how well they hide, you might never stop cleaning. Tri-County Health Care (MN) offers a vivid picture of how disease-causing pathogens spread in large numbers and quickly, mostly by touch. As they mention, germs multiply fast, up to millions per day from a single germ. In addition to touch, germs travel by aerosol methods, at high velocity from sneezes and coughs and even toilet flush spray, remaining airborne for up to ten minutes. In route, they can hitchhike on floating dust particles and travel even further, multiplying at their destination. Deep cleaning clears out layers of hidden dust and dirt for a fresher look, and flushes out pathogens, disinfecting thoroughly.,
Seasonal Renewal Through Deep Cleaning
Deep cleaning and disinfecting can be somewhat disruptive, moving furniture and using special tools to reach and clean in places like vents and under installed equipment. It’s performed every six to twelve months, sometimes once per season, with trained commercial cleaning and disinfecting service workers handling daily or weekly cleaning. Factors that affect the frequency of deep cleaning include the amount of traffic through the facility potentially bringing pathogens, the presence of food and other growth media for bacteria, and the activities performed in the space, with eating, exercising, medical care, and education as a few of the higher-risk categories.
Knowing Where to Clean Makes a Big Difference
Trained commercial cleaning and disinfecting service technicians from Enviro-Master Services get a head start on deep cleaning, using thorough knowledge of pathogen hiding places in their regular cleaning. For instance, commercial restroom cleaning service covers vertical surfaces like toilet stall walls and splash areas near the sink as well as performing flat surface cleaning and offering tile and grout deep cleaning. For plumbing maintenance and bacteria control, a commercial drain treatment is also important.
Special Attention for High-Risk Disease Transmission Points
A COVID-19 cleaning service is especially appropriate in high-traffic areas such as airports, libraries, and bars. After initial cleaning, an electrostatic spraying service delivers the knockout punch for pathogens, ensuring that every nook, cranny, and surface receives effective disinfecting spray that’s safe for humans. Using a commercial cleaning and disinfecting service works well as a regular, predictable routine, so you know your business is fresh and your customers are confident in visiting your place.
Complete Coverage is Necessary, Not Just Spot Cleaning
Each type of business has its own frequent touch and transmission points, harboring millions of germs that are deposited by visitors daily. WebMD‘s list covers 12 types of facilities, including unexpected ones like swimming pools and movie theaters. A PBS interview discussed a study showing that virus transmission in the workplace can spread to 50% of surfaces within four hours of introduction. To block transmission, businesses use COVID-19 cleaning service and electrostatic spraying service as enhanced cleaning measures.
