Disinfecting can be more complicated than you think, so leave it to a professional commercial office cleaning service. It’s the best way to keep your office clean, your employees safe, and disinfect safely.
Along with the direct damage from COVID-19, poison control centers across the country have seen increasing numbers of injuries from the improper use of disinfectants, hand sanitizers, and other cleaning products. Here are some recommendations for reducing your risk.
Understanding the Risks of Improper Disinfection:
You might think bleach is safe because you can buy it in just about any supermarket or drug store. However, it can be deadly if mixed with some other common cleaning products. That includes vinegar that can result in chlorine gas, and ammonia that can produce chloramine gas. To make things even trickier, you may not realize how many cleaning products contain ammonia unless you’re reading the labels carefully.
There’s also the risk that you might think you’re disinfecting surfaces when you’re really not. All disinfectants are not created equal, and many of them won’t inactivate COVID-19, influenza viruses, or whatever specific pathogens you’re hoping to get rid of. Even if you have the right product, you also need to know how to use it, including how long to leave it on, how to ensure adequate ventilation, and whether you need to wear protective gear.
