How to Properly Clean to Prevent the Spread of Disease

Flu season is the peak time for the spread of infectious diseases, but germs on surfaces can infect people at any time of the year. Keeping your business clean is the first step in creating a safe environment, but traditional cleaning methods don't work as well as most people think they do. Learning how to properly clean any surface is a matter of practicing the correct techniques and using tools that actually work?not just ones that look like they're working.

 

The Problem with Traditional Cleaning Methods

 

Most people learn basic cleaning methods at home and translate these methods to a professional setting. Flat surfaces and small objects are usually cleaned with a rag and a bucket filled with sanitizing solution or soap. Floor cleaning traditionally consists of wiping the floor with a mop and rinsing the mop in a bucket. Both of these methods may look like they're cleaning, but they're actually spreading bacteria around in a smooth, even layer.

 

A Better Hand Cleaning Solution

 

Instead of wiping dirty water over desks and countertops, use Kaivac's KaiFly surface cleaning system. Simply spray cleaning solution on the microfiber applicator, then wipe the surface with it and let the cleaning solution soak for a minute or two. A professional-grade squeegee easily lifts the soil and bacteria, while removing the moisture completely instead of spreading it around.

 

For smaller or irregular surfaces that a squeegee can't handle, use the eight-fold method with Kaivac's SmartTowel and a cleaning solution spray. Fold the square microfiber cleaning towel twice to make a smaller square. Use one towel surface to clean one item, then use the back side of the towel to clean another item. Refold the towel to expose two more cleaning surfaces, and continue until all eight surfaces have been used. Kaivac's SmartTowel has convenient folding markings to make this job a snap.

 

Sanitary Floor Cleaning from Kaivac

 

Learn how to properly clean floors by watching a demonstration of Kaivac's No-Touch Cleaning System. Spray a cleaning solution on the floor and allow it to soak in, brushing it onto the grout between the tiles. Use the unique squeegee and vacuum system to remove moisture, soil, and bacteria from the floor, leaving it dry and almost entirely germ-free.

 

From MRSA germs on school gym mats to norovirus contamination in the food service industry, infectious disease can be disastrous for your business. It's crucial that you learn to properly clean floors, counters, and all other surfaces that people touch, so you can eliminate the germs that can spread these diseases.

Too often, users simply apply common cleaning detergents or mop soaps when cleaning and then carelessly vacuum them up. This is like pouring standard dish soap into an automatic dish washer.
