Disinfection is a process that destroys bacteria and inactivates viruses. Disinfection practices are strongly recommended for shared work/living spaces during a pandemic. When you disinfect a space, you remove harmful microbial populations that spread disease. Disinfection, sanitization, and cleaning are not all the same thing. Disinfection services do more to reduce microbial populations than you can do on your own with a household cleaner. Professional disinfection services work to keep spaces safe, without posing a risk to people and pets. Make sure you know what kind of cleaning agents your service is using. Here are some disinfection services that work.
Electrostatic Treatment Protects a Number of Surfaces
Electrostatic treatment uses charges to neutralize airborne infectants, as well as surface contaminants. EPA-registered chemicals can be used in conjunction with the electrostatic charge to clean hidden and hard-to-reach areas throughout the space you’re cleaning. Touchless application of this technology ensures that new contaminants are not introduced to the environment during the cleaning process. While a spray bottle of cleaner has a very finite application range, electrostatic treatment can disinfect the entire space.
Antimicrobial Coatings Can Last for Months
Another effective disinfection method involves creating antimicrobial coatings. This type of treatment can remove contaminants and prevent new contaminants from occupying an environment. These types of coatings can last up to 90 days, making them an excellent option for common work spaces. Antimicrobial coatings can be used on porous and non-porous surfaces to create a bond that does not allow bacteria and viruses to stick. Positive charges attract negatively charged bacteria and rupture their surface membranes with a series of spikes created by the coating.
Your Treatment Methods Should Be Safe
There are many heavy-duty disinfection agents that are chemically designed to destroy all kinds of microbes. However, not all of these agents are safe for contact surfaces. You don’t want your disinfection agent to have negative health effects for the humans and pets occupying a space. This is why it’s important to work with a professional disinfection service. Professional services have different tools for different types of jobs, and they can use their expertise to make the right choice for you. Find a professional service that uses EPA-registered chemicals to ensure that you have a positive experience.
