As we begin to regain a sense of normalcy amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, we need to implement new safety procedures in order to keep our buildings for our employees and clients. After all, strict restrictions will need to be put in place in order to keep everything clean and germ-free, including the floors. In order to ensure you are following CDC guideline, make sure to review the precautions your area has mandated and insert them into your cleaning routines. But there is a difference between clean, disinfected and sanitized – and this is the way that they all break down:
Cleaned. To clean a floor is to remove dirt and grime, in order to make it look nice and shiny to the eye. Unfortunately, many all-purpose floor cleansers are just cleaning the floors; they aren’t actually getting rid of germs.
Sanitized. When you sanitize a floor, you are cleaning it deeper than a basic cleaning, because they reduce the growth of bacteria on surfaces. It is better, but it isn’t as deep of a clean as a good disinfecting.
Disinfected. The deepest of the clean, disinfecting floors will kill both the germs and the bacteria. This should be the norm of most companies nowadays.
The wonderful thing about floor scrubbers is that they have the ability to clean and sanitize at the same time, using certain cleansers. And within those high-traffic areas, disinfecting will be ideal. After all, airborne germs are transmitted easily and can spread along surfaces like floors in a spray-like way that becomes impossible to trace. Being able to have a machine that can effectively keep everyone safe is the ultimate goal.
