What to Expect from Commercial Deep Cleaning with Disinfectants?

As mentioned above, deep cleaning from a commercial cleaning company should start with a general cleaning process. Then, they will continue with a separate process for disinfecting.
 
The first cleaning should focus on using green clean products and low-impact cleaning tools. Once that’s complete, a disinfection process should use anti-microbial chemicals that have proven effective for killing germs.
 
In fact, the US Environmental protection Agency (EPA) has published a list of the chemicals proven to effectively kill germs. Therefore,
 commercial cleaning companies should only be using these chemicals for disinfecting your commercial property.
 
In deep cleaning, your commercial cleaning company should focus additional disinfection efforts on high-touch areas, especially in common areas or shared office space.

High Touch Point Disinfecting Includes Disinfecting the Following:

  • First, conference tables, cubicle desks, cubicle ledges, shelves, cubicles, conference rooms, phone rooms, file cabinet handles and common areas
  • Second, front desk and waiting areas.
  • Also, kitchen tables, kitchen surface spaces, and chairs.
  • As well as phones, keyboards and computer mice on all desks.
  • Door handles, conference room door handles, restroom door handles and stall door handles
  • Indeed, stair rails
  • And finally, refrigerators, drink fridge, microwave, toaster oven, coffee makers, kitchen faucet, paper towel holders, etc.

Electrostatic Disinfecting Services

Some commercial cleaning companies offer increased cleaning technology services for an additional fee using an electrostatic sprayer. To illustrate, this process consists of spraying an electrostatic-charged disinfecting mist onto all surfaces and objects in the facility. The spray contains positively charged particles that are able to aggressively adhere to surfaces and objects. As a result, the particles in the spray are positively charged, so they cling to and coat any surface, including walls, light fixtures, etc.

How Do I Know if My Commercial Cleaning Services Truly Practices Deep Cleaning?

The best way to answer this question is by asking your commercial deep cleaning company for a detailed list of what they do. In addition, you should make sure it includes everything you need and also require a checklist that gets filled out during the process.

This should list each area to be cleaned and what actions will be taken in each area.

Deep cleaning and disinfecting depend on these key factors:

First, the chemicals that are used, including disinfectants

Ask what cleaning products they’re using. As we mentioned before, EPA guidelines require disinfection agents to kill 99.9999% of germs to be approved. With this in mind, remember the disinfectant dwell time. If the disinfectant is applied and wiped off before dwell time has expired, then it will not do its job effectively

Second, the equipment used to apply them

The equipment your commercial cleaning company uses and the training the cleaners have had will make a big difference. Therefore, the deep cleaning company you hire should have trained service providers on industry best practices. Including EPA and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards for safety and compliance.

As well as the proper techniques used by the cleaning crew

Moreover, specifically, you should ask these questions:

  • First, what type of disinfecting and sanitation agents are you using?
  • Second, what is your application method?
  • Last but certainly not least, is your cleaning crew trained or certified on best practices?

If a fire has occurred at your home, your first concern, of course, is the safety of yourself and your family. However, depending on the extent of the fire damage, you will have to resolve the issue of salvageable v. non-salvageable property after a fire. Homeowners’ insurance protects your home itself (Dwelling Coverage) and its contents (Personal Property Coverage). High heat, smoke, and soot can cause extensive damage to your personal property, such as clothes, furniture, hardwood floors, and appliances. For instance, smoke damage causes fabrics, clothes, and soft goods to reek of the smell of smoke. Additionally, smoke and soot can discolor objects and reduce the life span of electronics and machinery. Consequently, you and your insurance company will have to determine which personal property is salvageable v. non-salvageable property after a fire.
