First off, disinfecting has become an especially important part of commercial cleaning since the pandemic. Disinfecting has been proven to be effective in reducing the risk associated with the spread of viruses in a workplace environment.
Cleaning, Disinfecting & Sanitizing
Cleaning removes germs, dirt and impurities from surfaces or objects with soap (or detergent) and water. Cleaning does not necessarily kill germs but lowers their numbers and the risk of spreading infection.
Disinfecting uses EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) registered chemicals to kill germs on surfaces. It does not necessarily clean dirty surfaces or remove germs, but by killing germs on a surface after cleaning, it can lower the risk of spreading infection.
Sanitizing lowers the number of germs on surfaces or objects to a safe level. This process either cleans or disinfects surfaces and objects to lower the risk of spreading infection.
Cleaning products used to eliminate stains may not always be effective disinfectants and vice versa.
Jani-King’s Disinfecting Program
Jani-King’s professional disinfection services include the use of electrostatic sprayers, hydroxyl generators, fogging equipment, and manual disinfecting methods.
Electrostatic sprayers enable approved and proven disinfectants to more effectively coat and cling to hard, nonporous surfaces, ensuring quick and effective application even in large or harder to reach areas.
Another effective method for disinfecting the air inside a facility is using a hydroxyl generator device that is powered by high-energy ultraviolet photochemistry. Hydroxyl generators attack viruses, bacteria, mold, other pathogens in the air, on surfaces and fabrics. While generating atmospheric hydroxyl radicals, a powerful sanitizing oxidant, you can have consistent disinfecting coverage in small spaces or large conference rooms.
Also, fogging equipment is portable and can disinfect spaces in the shortest possible time, reducing cost, and providing the best coverage. Another reason fogging machines are an excellent choice when it comes to disinfecting is that they provide airborne disinfection. Thanks to their ability to turn any disinfectant solution into microscopic particles, these devices can provide an extra level of protection against contaminants in an environment, purifying the air and getting rid of any odors in the process.
As effective as the powered applications are, there is still no true substitute for a manual disinfecting application. Using FDA approved disinfecting agents our cleaning experts will apply the approved disinfectant with spray bottles and then wipe away the remnants with a cloth after observing the proper dwell time. Allowing the appropriate dwell time is critical as that is the amount of time needed for the chemical to do its job.
