Green Rose Cleaning Services vs COVID-19
Green Rose Cleaning Services provides pathogenic prevention, disinfecting, microbial electrostatic fogging, and sanitization services. We use CDC guidelines along with EPA certified disinfectant products with broad spectrum kill claims to eliminate viruses, in both our Ultra Low Volume and Electrostatic fogger machines, as well as during wipe down cleaning services.
What is Electrostatic Disinfecting — Electrostatic disinfecting is a way of quickly and evenly coating a surface or area with a microbial mist that destroys and inactivates both bacteria and viruses as identified on the product label. This is done by using an electrostatic fogger that gives a negative charge to an EPA certified disinfecting solution as it exits the nozzle and wraps around surfaces.
With the changing situation regarding COVID-19, Green Rose Cleaning Services is actively- monitoring the most up-to-date safety, infection control and cleaning protocols recommended by the experts, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Global Bio-risk Advisory Council (GBAC) . The safety of our staff, our clients, and the public is always of the upmost importance in everything that we do. Let us know if you’d like us to implement one of the following two options to your existing service or as a one-time service for your facility.
Cleaning, Sanitizing and Disinfecting. Understanding the differences.
- Cleaning removes dust, debris and dirt from a surface by scrubbing, washing and rinsing.
- Sanitizing reduces the bacteria identified on the product’s label on surfaces but does not destroy or inactivate viruses.
- Disinfecting destroys or inactivates both the bacteria and viruses identified on the product’s label (like coronavirus, influenza and rhinovirus) on hard, nonporous surfaces.
Why Disinfection Is Important during a pandemic. Remember that you should disinfect – not sanitize – because disinfectants are the only products approved by the EPA to kill viruses on hard surfaces. The main difference is that EPA-approved sanitizers only have claims for bacteria, while disinfectants have claims against both bacteria and viruses. Disinfecting hard, nonporous surfaces is one of the most reliable ways to help lower the risk of spreading germs from surfaces by touch.
