In addition to following proper hand hygiene routines, cleaning and disinfecting surfaces is equally important to slow down spread of viruses and kill bacteria. Contaminants can stay on surfaces and continue to be a threat for days if not removed properly.DESCRIPTION:
Cleaning and disinfecting surfaces
- Wear gloves for cleaning procedures. Gloves should be discarded after each cleaning. If using re-usable gloves, they should be dedicated for cleaning and disinfecting surfaces of certain zones in the working area.
- Wash hands immediately after gloves are removed
- Dry your hands thoroughly with a single-use paper towel to prevent spread of microorganisms
Clean dirt from surfaces
- Dirty surfaces must be cleaned first by using a detergent or soap, water and a disposable cloth prior to disinfection. Parts of bacteria and viruses can be mechanically removed this way.
- To properly disinfect, use an approved disinfectant and a disposable cloth. If using an alcohol based product, use one with a minimum of 70% alcohol (i.e. Ethanol or Isopropyl alcohol). Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions for all cleaning and disinfection products (e.g. concentration, application method, contact time, etc.) Do not mix chemicals unless stated in manufacturer’s instructions.
- Check product expiration date. Expired chemicals will not disinfect effectively.
