Killing The Coronavirus With Cleaning: How To Clean, Sanitize and Disinfect Your Workplace and Home

Within a relatively short space of time, the Coronavirus has radically changed working life, perhaps forever in the case of some organizations. Never before has home or workplace cleaning taken on life and death implications across so many different types of life and work settings.

Studies in home and offices have shown that germs can spread from the home or office within 2–4 hours via contaminated touchpoints. They all need regular cleaning and disinfecting with approved products to ensure protection from infection. In killing the Coronavirus with cleaning, here’s how the cleaning experts at ServiceMaster by PWF clean, sanitize, and disinfect your workplace and home.

What is the difference between cleaning and disinfection?

Cleaning refers to the removal of germs from surfacesDisinfecting refers to the use of chemicals to kill germs on surfaces. Both can lower the risk of infection spread, but you should clean first and disinfect after.

Cleaning and disinfecting are essential measures for managers of buildings and homeowners, making areas safe from the coronavirus and to quickly return them to normal use. Professional disinfection services have the techniques, tools and most appropriate products to disinfect areas to make them safe and return them to use as quickly as possible.

Protecting key touchpoints against the Coronavirus

Poor hand hygiene is a particular problem because people frequently cough and sneeze into their hands or touch their mouth or nose, providing a ready means to spread the coronavirus to everything they touch. The virus can be transferred to other people when they touch a contaminated surface and become infected when they touch their mouth, nose, or eyes.

In hospitals, schools, social care, offices, retail outlets, hotels, and public transport, there are many key touchpoints that people commonly share, including:
