What are Disinfecting Services?
Disinfecting services are cleaning services that use a disinfectant. The EPA describes a disinfectant as an antimicrobial used on inanimate surfaces and objects to destroy or irreversibly inactivate microorganisms. There are two categories of disinfectants – hospital grade and household.
We use hospital-grade disinfectants that are proven to destroy Coronavirus and other viruses upon contact. Our EPA non-toxic disinfectant solution is applied through a backpack style fogging machine that allows for complete coverage of a room or facilities in a matter of minutes.
How to Prepare a Surface for Disinfecting?
If you have a layer of dust, dirt, or oils, it will create a barrier between the surface and disinfectant. This will prohibit the disinfectant from destroying the microorganisms on the surface. To get the most out of your disinfecting services, you’ll want to keep on top of your regular cleaning. Legacy provides standard janitorial cleaning services if you need a partner to help you carry out those duties.
How Much Does Disinfecting Services Cost?
Disinfecting service prices vary based on location, size, and demand. Your disinfecting service provider will typically give you a quote based on the square footage of the area to be disinfected. Most Denver disinfecting services charge $.15 to $.20 cents per sq. ft. depending on the size, type of facility, and risk factors.
When Should I Disinfect My Business?
If you know someone who has tested positive for your COVID-19 has been in your business or facility, you’ll definitely want to use a disinfecting service. Aside from that, how often you choose to disinfect will likely depend on how many people are coming and going each day.
Businesses that see a lot of customers and employees every day will want reoccurring disinfecting services at least once per week. If Coronavirus is present at the time of disinfecting service, it will be killed. However, if someone with COVID-19 brings the virus in the next day, the virus can survive on surfaces until the next scheduled disinfecting service eliminates it.
