While not much is known about COVID-19, one thing that is undeniable is that the virus can live up to several days on certain surfaces. However, with frequent cleaning, disinfecting of shared surfaces, and staying socially-distant, the spread of the virus can be slowed.
Let's look at the safest and most effective cleaning supplies for cleaning your business.
Choosing the Right Cleaning Supplies for Your Business
According to the CDC, the two-step approach to reducing the time that Coronavirus lives on surfaces is first, cleaning, then, disinfecting.
If you're looking for the best way to protect your business from SARS-Cov-2 (COVID-19), routine cleaning of surfaces with soap and room-temperature water is essential, followed by a round of applying an EPA-approved disinfectant, such as 1/3 cup of bleach or alcohol solutions with at least 70% alcohol added to 1 gallon of room temperature water. Combined with hardworking dry wipes, you can create a solution that is best suited for cleaning your business to protect against COVID-19.
Dry solution wipes can be used to refill existing cleaning canisters or altered to fit your needs (available in various quantities, roll sizes, and diameters). These wipes are cost-effective, convenient, and don't take up a lot of space. Put containers of these wipes throughout your business along with signs reminding employees to frequently clean their desks and other shared spaces to combat COVID-19 in your workspace.
Our precision dry wipes soak up chemical solutions quickly and are made out of durable polypropylene, making them perfect for frequent maintenance wiping around the office, while our center-pull rolls, that are cellulose based and feature a special binder, are tough and strong, making them perfect for use during in-depth daily cleaning sessions.
Why Regularly Cleaning and Disinfecting Your Business is Essential
Regular cleaning and disinfecting of surfaces in your business is essential to preventing the spread of COVID-19, but only if you're using the right cleaning products and solutions. Cleaning solutions must contain either 5.25%–8.25% bleach or 70% alcohol solutions. Any less than this, and the solution will not be effective against the virus. Failure to clean and disinfect your business at least once every 24 hours can increase the spread of COVID-19 in your workspace. When creating a routine cleaning plan for your business, it can helpful to take note of all frequently touched surfaces and objects that must be cleaned, including:
- light switches
- fridge handles
- printers, copiers, & fax machines
faucets and sinks
