Sanitizing And Disinfecting A 3 Step Process For Better Piece Of Mind
The CDC (https://www.cdc.gov/) recommends cleaning each high tough space first with soap and water and then to use the sanitizer/disinfectant. Most labels on these cleaners have different instructions to follow. Its extremely important to read and review what those are before use. Below is a link to the product we use and example instructions. No point in spraying a sanitizer/disinfectant only to wipe it dry in 15 seconds if that won’t actually kill any viruses etc.
A great way to clean high touch areas except for electronic devices would be to use microfiber towels. They are super absorbent, antimicrobial, and can be color coordinated to clean bathrooms, kitchens, desks, and doors knobs, and etc.
General hand soap can be placed in a medium sized bowl and then mixed with warm water. By doing this the soap with have time to dilute in the water and thus making it easier to apply evenly to surfaces when applied using the microfiber towels. Simply take a corner of the microfiber towel and dip it in the soapy water mixture. Fold the towel keeping on side wet to clean with and the other side dry to dry the area afterwards.
Once the surfaces you wanted to clean are dry then go around and either spray or wipe with sanitizer/disinfectant and follow the labels instructions for use. Most likely, you will need to let the spray or wiped area dry at least 3-5 minutes . Leaving the space dry for that length of time might leave a streak. If it does you can go back and with a clean microfiber cloth you can buff out the streaking.
This is an effective three step process to clean the high touch spaces in your commercial building etc. Its important to review the CDC recommendations and to follow the instructions for use on any cleaner you use (file:///C:/Users/JP/Downloads/1726-2_TruShot-Disinfectant.pdf) We use the SC Johnson Hospital Grade Disinfectant. However, it is my belief that if these three steps are followed routinely spaces that may be of concern for employees, tenants, and customers etc. will help put their minds at ease. Its important to display the steps that are being taken to prevent viruses, etc. in a visible area. High traffic areas are great places to leave best practice notices.
