Disinfection is the process which involves the elimination of most pathogenic microorganisms (viruses, bacteria, mycrobacteria, fungi, protozoa etc.) on surfaces with the help of disinfectants. And it can only be done on clean surface having no tangible particles, dirt and other impurities. Therefore, it is important to prepare the surface or the object to be disinfected by cleaning with proper equipment and procedures before disinfecting it because,
“You can clean without disinfecting, but you can’t disinfect without cleaning.”
Cleaning and reducing germs is important in any facility be it hospitals, offices, malls or any other public facilities. But, different facilities will require different equipment and procedures depending on their specific requirements. Most recommended and common cleaning equipment for commercial cleaning are appended below;
- Vacuum cleaners, with different attachments for different surfaces (hard flooring, carpeted flooring etc.)
- Single Disk Machines
- Scrubber Drier Machines
- Mop Buckets / Mopping Trolleys
In view of the currently emerging and developing situation created by COVID-19, one thing that will be common in different facilities are the high-touch points which must always be disinfected. Depending on the surface and facility, you may have to disinfect high-touch surfaces several times a day. These points may include;
• Chair Handles
• Light Switches
• Soap Dispensers
Therefore, it is necessary to choose well suited cleaning and disinfecting procedures to get highly beneficial results.
