What and How to Disinfect from Cleaning Experts

It’s common knowledge that an office needs regular cleanings. However, what many people don’t know is that offices also need a proper disinfection in addition to a cleaning. In order to thoroughly disinfect and kill any harmful bacteria, a regular office cleaning is not enough. Learn from the experts how to disinfect properly, as well as clean, in order to keep your employees safe.

How to Disinfect

Use the Proper Products

The CDC recommends that you first clean a surface with soap and water in order to remove any germs or bacteria on it. This will allow for you to lower the risk of bacteria spreading. Once you have done that, you should then use disinfectants. The EPA-approved disinfectants you use will then help to kill any remaining germs on surfaces.

There are multiple approved EPA disinfectants that you can use around your office. Disinfectant wipes and sprays that include hydrogen peroxide, bleach or alcohol solutions with 70 percent alcohol can be effective in helping to kill harmful bacteria that can be found around your office.

Identify the High-Touch Areas

Millions of bacteria can live on the high-touch areas in your office. That is why it is important to identify where these surfaces are and thoroughly disinfect them multiple times each week or even as often as once a day.

Remember, high-touch areas can be either hard surfaces, such as a door knob or handle or soft-surfaces, such as rugs and couches which receive frequent contact.

Ordering an audit done on your office that will identify where exactly those high-touch areas are in your office can be very helpful if you plan to disinfect the space yourself.
