Covid sanitization services in West Island Montreal
Maids to Die For personnel are trained in the correct procedures required for complete disinfection and sanitization of residential and commercial properties. Our professional cleaners will use the right products to ensure that surfaces are thoroughly cleansed and disinfected.
What you should know:
- Commonly used cleaners and disinfectants are effective against COVID-19.
Although touching contaminated surfaces is not the main way COVID-19 is spread, cleaning your hands is important after handling surfaces and objects that are not or cannot be cleaned and disinfected (e.g., porous objects).
Use disinfectants that have a Drug Identification Number (DIN). A DIN is an 8-digit number given by Health Canada that confirms it is approved for use in Canada. Household bleach may not have a DIN, but is an effective disinfectant.
Check the expiry date and safety instructions of products you use and always follow manufacturer’s instructions.
Establish a cleaning schedule:
Identify surfaces, objects and equipment that need routine cleaning as well as disinfection.
Indoor surfaces that are frequently touched should be cleaned and disinfected at least once per day and when visibly dirty.
Examples include doorknobs, elevator buttons, light switches, toilet handles, counters, hand rails, touch screen surfaces and keypads.
In addition to routine cleaning, check for any specific cleaning and disinfection protocols for your setting.
Selecting the right cleaning product:
Break down grease and remove organic material from the surface.
Used separately before using disinfectants.
Can be purchased with cleaner and disinfectant combined in a single product.
Have chemicals that kill most germs.
Applied after the surfaces have been cleaned.
Have a drug identification number (DIN), excluding bleach.
Have combined cleaners and disinfectants in one solution.
May become dry due to fast drying properties. Should be discarded if they become dry.
Not recommended for heavily soiled surfaces.
Prepare products for use
Where possible, use ready for use, pre-mixed solutions.
Never mix different chemical products together.
Properly prepare solution
Allow adequate contact time (time the surface remains wet) for disinfectant to kill germs (see product label)
Wear gloves when handling cleaning products including wipes
Wear any other personal protective equipment recommended by the manufacturer
Use bleach safely
Bleach is not a cleaning agent. Surfaces must be clean in order for bleach to disinfect.
Only dilute bleach by adding water, not other chemicals. Bleach usually comes as 5.25% or ~50,000 parts per million (ppm) sodium hypochlorite.
Store bleach solutions in closed, labeled containers, away from heat and light. Dilute bleach with water just before use as it loses potency within 24 hours.
We care about the environment, and use non-toxic cleaners.
