Coronavirus / COVID 19 Deep Cleaning Service
COVID-19, also known as the Coronavirus, has arrived in full force. Offices are shutting down and sending workers home to work remotely when possible. Based on what we know, the virus spreads from person-to-person, similar to SARS and MERS. Evidence shows that COVID-19 thrives on plastic and steel surfaces for days. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is recommending cleaning and disinfection as a best practice for the prevention of COVID-19.

Why Get a Coronavirus Deep Cleaning?
A deep cleaning involves diving into the forgotten nooks and crannies that dirt and virus-carrying particulates love to hide. A deep clean means hunting for contamination behind furniture, along baseboards, and window frames. It can involve up to an extra hour per bathroom, guaranteeing no surface area is left behind. A deep cleaning is a more meticulous and focused execution of a cleaning job that involves disinfecting. When the health of your entire work team is at risk, a deep clean is always the best choice.
What is the Difference Between Cleaning, Disinfecting, and Sanitizing?
Although these terms are related, they are not the same. The CDC and EPA define these terms by the following:
- Cleaning – removes germs and dirt from surfaces. Soap and water are effective for cleaning. This does not always kill germs, but can lower their numbers. You should clean surfaces before disinfecting them.
- Disinfecting – kills germs on surfaces. Disinfectant chemicals are stronger than soap but don’t clean visibly dirty surfaces. For proper disinfection, products should remain on a surface for 3 to 5 minutes.
- Sanitizing – also kills germs, but disinfecting kills more. Some products do both. Sanitizers lower the risk of infection, but are not as strong and effective as disinfecting.
How to Keep Your Workplace Clean During the Coronavirus Pandemic
After getting your office deep cleaned, your work is not finished. You will need to maintain your office space and do everything possible to keep it clean and safe. You can’t deep clean it every day, but there are some basic practices to follow that will help in reducing the risk of contamination.

Everyone knows this, but it’s worth repeating. When staff arrives, the first thing they should do is wash their hands. Washing hands frequently throughout the day, especially before eating and after using the restroom.
A sink and soap aren’t always available. Hand sanitizer is a good substitute. Keep hand sanitizer on desks and in strategic stations around the office. The breakroom is a good place to keep a hand sanitizer station.
Forget the Handshake
The Coronavirus is transmitted primarily through human contact. So we want to naturally avoid that. Refusing a handshake is now a sign of goodwill. Go for an air bump instead – a fist bump with no contact.
Clean Your Smart Phone
All the hand washing doesn’t mean much if your phone is contaminated. Use a damp, soapy microfiber cloth to clean the screen and back of your smartphone. Disinfectant wipes work too.
