Choosing the right product for facility disinfection is just as important as choosing the right provider.
Are you ready for re-entry? We are. In 2020 alone, we have disinfected more than 16 million square feet of space throughout the country. And with 10 years’ experience in infection control and over 24 years protecting your other surfaces, we have the knowledge and expertise you can rely on to help your employees and building occupants breathe easy.
Choosing the right product for facility disinfection is just as important as choosing the right provider. Look for disinfectants that meet the following criteria:
- Included on the EPA’s List N: Disinfectants for Use Against SARS-CoV-2, meaning it has been approved for use against the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.
- A Hazardous Materials Identification System (HMIS) rating of 0.0.0.0—the lowest toxicity level possible.
- Food-grade safe, NSF-certified and Carpet and Rug Institute SOA approved.
- Conformed to Boeing Specification D6-17487 testing, which means it is proven safe for a wide variety of surfaces and textiles.
- Be wary of products claiming extended kill times of 30 days or more. These can provide a false sense of security and are not compliant with the EPA's emerging pathogen policy.
We don’t just use the right products; we use them correctly. As you return to the office, consider these best practices:
- Increase the frequency of your enhanced and touchpoint cleaning and consider scheduled electrostatic applied disinfection. Wiping alone is not sufficient.
- Clarify your scope of work with your vendors carefully—“electric” is not the same as “electrostatic”, Are all their front line and management staff accredited in infection prevention?
- Upgrade your vacuums to dual-motor upright devices with HEPA filters or consider robotic vacuums to increase your efficiency and efficacy and to lower costs.
- Don’t be bamboozled by high disinfecting prices. If you are paying more for disinfecting services than you are for carpet cleaning, chances are you are paying too much.
- Avoid low-moisture, foam or encapsulation cleaning for your back-to-work initial carpet clean. Switch to deep cleaning that includes pre-vacuuming, pre-agitating, and hot water extraction with 160-degree water.
