If there is one thing you must know, it is this:

You cannot disinfect your building without it first being effectively cleaned

Disinfection is a process that reduces the number of micro-organisms to a level at which they are not harmful and is only effective if the surface is thoroughly cleaned with a detergent solution beforehand

Cleaning is the removal of soiling, whether visible of invisible, from a surface
Sanitising is the reduction of bacteria and germs
Disinfection is the removal of bacteria and germs

You can sanitise a surface without necessarily cleaning it first, or indeed you can have one product or process which does both. You cannot disinfect without thoroughly cleaning first, so not every all-in-one process will necessarily work.
So, if you are looking to ensure that germs are removed, you first need to have a thoroughly clean surface.
If your surfaces are not clean, you will not be able to remove that virus with disinfection, you would only be able to reduce it with sanitisation.

To summarise, the importance of a business implementing a thorough cleaning plan (this will vary on the “Foot-fall” of each individual business) is imperative.

Three-step decontamination services explained

Our Three Step Process Explained

In order to protect you, your staff and customers, it is our belief that:
If you don’t have a three-step process and If you don’t start that process with an effective deep clean, then…you’re wasting your time, energy and money.

When it comes to disinfection, three methods tend to be used:

  • Physical cleaning of touchpoints
  • Fogging / Misting
  • Electrostatic spraying

The difference between fogging and electrostatic spraying.

  • Fogging is atomising a chemical to apply it as a mist directionally
  • Electrostatic spraying is a method of applying a coating, cleaner, disinfectant, or other liquid, that involves applying an electric charge to a liquid in order to get it to fully cover a surface. The charge acts as a magnet to a surface but also ensures that the liquid does not stick to itself either, so you get full surface coverage.

Even if both methods were equally diligently applied, fogging can miss areas whereas electrostatic spraying will ensure to cover all surfaces.
