Let’s get back to cleaning basics! The CDC states “Cleaning with products containing soap or detergent reduces germs on surfaces by removing contaminants and may also weaken or damage some of the virus particles, which decreases risk of infection from surfaces.”

“When no people with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 are known to have been in a space, cleaning once a day is usually enough to sufficiently remove virus that may be on surfaces and help maintain a healthy facility.”

Keeping personal hygiene and daily disinfecting as the number one protection for virucides such as COVID-19 and Influenza is key to getting back to pre-pandemic lifestyles. Washing hands regularly, especially after touching high touch points in commonly shared spaces.

SmartClean® has been applying CDC protocols for over a decade following the guidelines of the Cleaning Industry Management Standards- Green Building (CIMS-GB). All our chemicals are based with soap and green detergents that are all biodegradable. Part of the CIMIS-GB process is to clean for health and not just for appearance. This should be a staple of all companies in the janitorial industry. Sanitizing and disinfecting will always be a part of the job specifications and it must be done.

Medical professionals, scientists, and all experts are continuing to learn about COVID-19. SmartClean® with its green cleaning certification not only uses environmentally friendly cleaning agents but is always monitoring the most effective ways to combat all virucides including COVID-19 in facilities. As a society we must remember going back to the basics is a key ingredient, and no machine will do a trick overnight.

Protecting your facility with proven systems that not only help reduce pathogens like never but are certified through trusted organizations. There is a lot of misinformation out there and asking questions while doing own research can be helpful.

At SmartClean® we will continue to strive and gain knowledge, science, and technology on the best approaches to combat germs, bacteria, and viricides. With our Cleaning Industry Management Standard – Green Building certification we will do this with green products.
