Covid19 Disinfect

With the rapidly spreading Corona Virus named Covid-19, cleaning and applying a disinfecting solution to your facilities has never been more important.


Covid-19 is a respiratory disease that spreads through droplets spread through coughs, sneezes, and secondary exposure of uninfected people to objects exposed to infected people.


Even if you aren’t in contact with an ill person, secondary exposure to Covid-19 is a possible method to become infected. 


This Corona Virus can stay on hard surfaces for up to 9 days which makes touchpoint areas a high-risk surface for secondary exposure of Covid-19. 


By effectively cleaning and applying disinfectant to your facilities, you can ensure your home is clean and healthy. 


How To Clean 

And Apply Disinfectant 

To Your Home



1. Remove soil and other surface contaminants (minor areas affected)



The emphasis on cleaning should be on high touch point areas. 


High touchpoint areas are classified as surfaces more likely to be touched by occupants. Make sure to clean these areas of soil and other surface contaminants before you begin to apply disinfectant. 


Make sure to clean a 3 – 12-inch radius around these areas to ensure you cleanse all possible areas of contact.

Clean these areas the best you can with a trigger sprayer cleanser, foam cleanser and a wiping cloth. Foam sprayers are recommended due to the slower drying time and visible application.

Although touchpoints vary by the type of facility being cleaned, common high touch point areas are: 


  • door knobs and locks
  • door push bars
  • door edges and jambs on the side opposite the hinges
  • stair and ramp hand railings
  • cupboard handles and drawer pulls
  • appliance handles
  • light switches
  • table and desktops, telephones
  • toilet seats and flush handles
  • faucet handles
  • soap pumps
  • keyboards and mice
  • elevator buttons
  • credit card keypads
  • vending machine buttons
  • equipment controls 
  • television remote controls
  • chair armrests
  • bedrails
  • Countertops


2. Applying Disinfectant



Once you’ve cleaned the high touch point areas, the next step is to apply disinfectant. The best way to stop the spread of Covid-19 is to apply disinfectant to high touchpoint areas after they’ve been cleaned. 


Apply EPA Registered disinfectants on the previously cleaned surfaces and wait for them to dry.

Common household EPA registered disinfectants are:


  • Clorox Commercial Solutions® Clorox® Disinfecting Spray
  • Clorox Disinfecting Wipes
  • Lysol brand Heavy-Duty Cleaner Disinfectant Concentrate
  • Lysol Disinfectant Max Cover Mist
  • Lysol brand Clean & Fresh Multi-Surface Cleaner
  • Purell Professional Surface Disinfectant Wipes
  • Sani-Prime Germicidal Spray
  • Clorox Multi Surface Cleaner + Bleach
    • Careful when using bleach on surfaces as it may have negative effects on some surfaces


3. Disinfecting Large Areas


If you need to apply disinfectant to a larger area, applying antimicrobial solutions as an aerosol is the most effective way to reduce microorganisms on walls, floors, and horizontal surfaces. Our HEPA filters also reduce airborne droplets to prevent the spread of Covid-19.


What does this mean?

Applying disinfectant for Covid-19 in larger areas is best done with spraying equipment or Ultra Low Volume Foggers. 


Fogging is a process where chemical disinfectants are applied to living spaces to create and disperse a disinfectant aerosol. 


HEPA air filters and scrubbers can also improve the environment by reducing the level of airborne particles. The removal of aerosolized particles during the cleaning process can improve the overall cleaning efficacy and reduce risk of Covid-19.  




By filtering negative air, these air scrubbers can reduce the airborne particles that get dislodged by the treatment process.


How does this help me?


This helps reduce numbers of microbiological pollutants, bacteria and prevents transmission of contaminants. 


In short, foggers allow us to apply Covid-19 disinfecting solution effectively and efficiently in large areas and hard to reach places while HEPA Filters filter out any airborne microorganisms.
