What’s the difference between cleaning and disinfecting

The easiest answer would be:
Cleaning is done using a detergent
Disinfecting is done by using a sanitiser

Are you looking for someone to take care of your office disinfection daily?

Inevitably, then the following is: which one comes first and why? It’s simple: We normally clean the surfaces with a detergent and then we sanitise them with a sanitiser after. If the surface is not clean, the sanitise will not be effective if the surface is dirty. It doesn’t work. Most people are now afraid of this invisible enemy called Coronavirus and don’t know how to protect themselves and their loved one from it. In this page, we are going to propose a few solutions


You can maintain your home free of COVID if you do these few things:

  • Keep yourself informed on what’s happening in your neighbourhood
  • Have a routine hygiene to keep your home clean at all times and as much as possible, and target the high touch areas.
  • Don’t watch too much news. Most of them are negative and they can lead to depression, bad mood and anxiety
  • COVID does not discriminate: we are all treated equally and NO one is safe. Anyone can get infected by anything, anywhere and at any time.
  • Don’t go with your shoes inside your home
  • Disinfect your hands as soon as you enter your home and before hugging anyone
  • Disinfect anything you bring into your home
  • Wash your hands frequently with soapy water or detergent
  • Have a routine to disinfect the high touch areas as often as you can
  • Avoid touching your face and nose if you are not sure that your hands are clean
  • Any common-sense action that can prevent the spread of the virus
  • You can do all this cleaning and sanitisation yourself or delegate it to a trusted cleaner
  • Always wear gloves when clean, disinfecting or sanitising any area of your home.
  • Have in place a regular cleaning service combined with a sanitisation plan to match the number of clients, workers, visitors the business receives every day. The sanitisation plan has to target mainly all the high touch and traffic areas.
  • Have a temperature check before entering the workplace, which will not detect all case of Covid-19 because infected people may not have any high temperature during the incubation or before showing other symptoms
  • Thermal screening, as part of a prevention measure plan, could help you to control the Covid-19 spread in your workplace.
  • Stay home if unwell policy: if someone is not feeling 100% well, they need to stay home and report it. This is a preventative action to avoid spreading the virus in case of COVID infection
  • Wear masks any time you are not able to maintain the social distance for any reason. It lowers the risks of getting infected.
  • Increased ventilation (natural or artificial), without re-circulating the air, is recommended by the WHO
  • Mental health support should be available and encouraged by workers. Treat it as an act of courage and not as cowardness or weakness
  • Instruct all workers to clean and sanitise all their personal belongings such as mobiles, glasses, keys, agendas, iPads, computers … etc
  • Use disinfectant of at least 70% of alcohol
  • Use different disposable gloves for different areas of the workplace to avoid cross-contamination
  • Use the right PPE (personal protective equipment) required for the job. We can never be too prudent.
What would cost if you get one of your workers positive?

If you get a worker, or trade, or visitor, or customer positive to COVID, it will cost you a lot of money, headache, time, stress, loss of business, and a few days with closed business. Consequently, it will affect your mood, cash flow, increase your stress level and it will inconvenience everyone around you

How to avoid or minimise the chances of getting anyone testing positive?

NOT easy, but possible. You can start by putting a COVID plan in place and some regular good practices such as:

  • Temperature test before the entrance. NO one with high temperature goes in your building. This can be done with the help of a machine or putting a staff member at the entrance.
  • Any employee who is not feeling 100%, HAS to let you know and above all to STAY HOME.
  • All sick or not feeling very well employees need to have the option to work from home (if possible), to help them lose their paycheque and to continue their doing their work from home to benefit your company.
  • NO one goes in your premises without a mask. You need to give the example by putting one on yourself.
  • Structure your office space and workplace to maintain the social distance as much as possible
  • Limit the number of people visiting your office to the most important and urgent matters.
  • Encourage phone calls, video calls, and zoom meetings whenever possible
  • Limit the people coming to the office as much as possible and if is it not possible, encourage more flexible working hours.
  • Start thinking about this “new normal”, accept it and start working within it. Do not fight it and create a new culture to promote it for the wellbeing of everyone. Learn to adapt to it
  • Encourage hand sanitising and have sanitisers on each desk, in the elevators, in the lobby or waiting area, at the entrance, in the bathrooms, in the common areas … and make them very visible and easy to use. The automatic sanitisers work best.
  • Encourage to have a max number of people per space and enforce it.
  • If you have a warehouse, fogging once a week is highly recommended to lower the virus and bacteria growth.
  • Have a minimum of one daily disinfecting clean. This is an addition to your daily cleaning service. Your regular cleaner can do it for you at the end of their clean using an Australian TGA approved commercial-grade disinfectant like Netbiokem
  • If you have a lot of people visiting your site, you need to organise a scheduled 1hr to 4hrs disinfection of the high touch areas.
  • These small good practices could save you and the people around from infecting each other and will lower your chances of having a COVID positive case in your site.
