Certified in Disinfection
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, The Organic Maids has been trained and accredited in disinfection of homes and offices. When discussing disinfection, it is very important to understand that there is a clear difference between sanitization and disinfection even though the two terms are often used interchangeably. Sanitization is something that occurs every time we come to your home and perform one of our standard cleaning packages (Pristine Cleaning, the Ultimate Cleaning Experience etc.). Sanitization is important for hygiene and maintaining a healthy home or office environment. This process removes dirt, mold and a significant portion of the surface bacteria and viruses.
Disinfection is process conducted only after a home or office has been sanitized (that is…cleaned). Once the home or office has been cleaned the following steps will be undertaken:
- A hospital grade disinfectant will be sprayed onto surfaces.
- The disinfectant will be allowed to remain on the surface for a prescribed period of time.
- The disinfectant will be then wiped using a microfiber cloth
- The treated surface will then be wiped again with water to rinse any disinfectant residue.
- If necessary, the surface will be then dried.
Why can’t the disinfectant be used during the regular cleaning process? The short answer is that it can but it won’t truly disinfect. By applying the disinfectant onto a dirty surface, the disinfectant is being absorbed by the dirt and not treating the surface. Furthermore, contrary to what advertisers would let you believe, disinfectants do not work on contact. They must remain on the surface for a period of time as prescribed by the manufacturer to truly disinfect.
