We have all heard the term “omicron variant” thrown around in conversations as of late. This new strain of the coronavirus is spreading quickly throughout the United States and Florida. Therefore, to slow the spread of the virus and protect yourself and your family, we used our cleaning expertise to outline our best tips for combatting the new omicron variant.
Clean and disinfect:
Cleaning without disinfecting is not enough to protect yourself from catching omicron. Therefore, after you wipe down your surfaces with a traditional cleaning solution, you must use a disinfectant to effectively eradicate any active traces of the virus. Otherwise, you will only clean for aesthetic purposes instead of protective purposes.
Use the correct disinfectants:
Here’s where the cleaning process gets tricky. Not all disinfectants are effective against COVID-19. To find if the disinfectant you’re using will kill all traces of the virus, visit https://cfpub.epa.gov/wizards/disinfectants/ and place the product EPA number in the search bar. If your disinfectant isn’t effective, you may need to take a trip to the store. If you’re not sure what ingredients to look for, pine-sol products are a good option. Pine-sol is a recent addition to the EPA’s list of effective cleaners against COVID-19.
Clean your HVAC system:
Proper air circulation is crucial at preventing traces of the omicron variant from staying in the air. Therefore, make sure to replace your air filter regularly, clean your vents, and schedule a professional air duct cleaning service. In addition, you can place air filters throughout your property to keep the air free of pathogens and germs.
Electrostatic spraying services use an air compressor to evenly spray surfaces with electrostatically charged disinfectant. This charge sanitizes spaces with a large force that begins working within two minutes and remains active for up to 4 days. Many schools, hospitals, and other businesses use electrostatic spraying to keep their customers and clients safe. However, only professionals can handle these harsh chemicals. Thankfully, we’re equipped and licensed to get the job done. If you’re interested in electrostatic spraying services, call us today.
