Why Commercial Cleaning Services Should Include Disinfection and Fogging Treatments

Long gone are the days when cleaning a commercial setting just meant dusting furniture, mopping floors. and vacuuming carpets. The pandemic has proved that commercial cleaning services should not only get rid of visible dirt and debris but also eliminate pathogens and contaminants with the potential to spread diseases, such as the virus that causes COVID-19 and its variants. In fact, disinfection and fogging treatments can be considered essential steps in any cleaning job to guarantee reliable and long-lasting results.

It should be noted that, even though cleaning and disinfecting are completely different concepts, people tend to confuse them and use them interchangeably. Unfortunately, this misunderstanding contributes to the spread of germs, especially in public spaces, as people assume that clean-looking surfaces are also disinfected and sanitized when in reality it is not always the case. This is the main reason why commercial cleaning services should include disinfection and fogging treatments, to help control the spread of bacteria and viruses.

Commercial Cleaning Services Vs. Disinfection and Fogging

Traditional commercial cleaning services are focused on removing dirt, dust, crumbs, and germs from objects and surfaces. The process also includes using some kind of detergent mixed with water to physically clean off these items and surfaces. This process doesn't eliminate contaminants, but it does reduce their numbers, effectively decreasing the risk of infection.

Meanwhile, disinfection and fogging services are dedicated specifically to eliminating contaminants and pathogens using disinfectant products formulated to kill bacteria, viruses, and mould. These products are fogged onto objects, surfaces, and spaces, covering them with ease thanks to the microscopic size of the particles in the "fog" or mist.

The key to disinfection and fogging treatments is to comply with the four C’s, which are chemistry, concentration, contact time, and coverage. This means that disinfecting and fogging with products that are chemically effective, in the right concentration and for the recommended contact time (always check the product's label), while also ensuring good coverage, will always give excellent results.

The biggest takeaway here is that both cleaning and disinfecting surfaces are the best possible actions to lower the risk of spreading infection. Cleaning alone won't do it. Therefore, business owners must make sure that any commercial cleaning service they hire knows this. Moreover, they should consider booking disinfection and fogging service, as this is the best bet to properly complete any cleaning process.
