New Sanitation, Cleaning & Disinfecting Services to aid in helping our community stay safe & reduce the numbers against COVID-19

The Novel Coronavirus COVID-19 has changed the world on how we now look at cleaning, disinfecting and sanitizing

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.

  • If surfaces are dirty, clean them: Use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.

Cleaning and disinfecting is your 1st step in staying safe from sickness and reducing the spread of viruses like COVID-19.  Learn more preventive measures you can take to safeguard, yourself and/or your clients and employees at the Centers for Disease and Prevention website.


The COVID-19 virus can persist in the air and on surfaces for hours, if not days, according to a new study performed by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), CDC, UCLA and Princeton University.

Know the difference between Cleaning, Disinfecting & Sanitizing.


Cleaning removes germs, dirt, and impurities from surfaces or objects. Cleaning works by using soap (or detergent) and water to physically remove germs from surfaces. This process does not necessarily kill germs, but by removing them, it lowers their numbers and the risk of spreading infection.

Disinfecting kills germs on surfaces or objects. Disinfecting works by using chemicals to kill germs on surfaces or objects. This process does not necessarily clean dirty surfaces or remove germs, but by killing germs on a surface after cleaning, it can further lower the risk of spreading infection.

Sanitizing lowers the number of germs on surfaces or objects to a safe level, as judged by public health standards or requirements. This process works by either cleaning or disinfecting surfaces or objects to lower the risk of spreading infection.

It's important not to confuse disinfecting with sterilization.  



What is the difference between disinfection and sterilization?

Disinfection destroys most pathogenic and other microorganisms by physical or chemical means. In contrast, sterilization destroys all microorganisms, including substantial numbers of resistant bacterial spores, by heat (steam autoclave, dry heat, and unsaturated chemical vapor) or liquid chemical sterilants. Disinfection does not ensure the degree of safety associated with sterilization processes.

We use disinfectants qualified for use against SARS-CoV-2, the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19.
