How to Choose the Right Home Disinfection Service?
In the present circumstances of spreading Coronavirus, it becomes more important to ensure the hygiene and disinfection of your home to prevent the risk of getting infected by the virus of COVID-19.
In this situation, you will have to be very careful while choosing the right HOME DISINFECTION SERVICE in your area. You can choose the best service to disinfect your home by asking every service provider a few questions like:
HOW CAN YOU ENSURE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF YOUR DISINFECTANTS ON CORONAVIRUS?
Most of the disinfection services falsely claim about the effectiveness of their disinfectants against Coronavirus. But none of them can prove their claim as it is a new virus and at present, no one can claim to eradicate it completely.
So the service provider you choose must have some disinfectant that is approved by NEA Singapore to be used for restricting COVID-19 as per its Policy for Emerging Pathogens. Such products can be effective against Coronavirus as they are effective against various types of viruses.
However, while working at your home you should ensure that they are using the right disinfectant instead of its substitute.
HOW DO YOU COMBAT AGAINST AIRBORNE VIRUSES?
Airborne viruses are more harmful to mankind than the viruses on other surfaces. Usually, viruses can remain in the air for up to several weeks. The disinfection service you hire must include the process of disinfecting these airborne viruses in their disinfection schedule.
It is more important in present circumstances as Coronavirus could not be understood completely even after more than two months of its spreading all over the world.
Increasing the exchange of air throughout the building can be one of the methods to combat airborne viruses. These viruses can also be made inactive by using free radicals of hydroxyl.
If any of these methods are not effective on the routine airborne viral particles then they may not be able to understand the risks of transmission of this new virus, Coronavirus.
HOW CAN YOU SHOW THAT CLEANING AND DISINFECTION HAVE BEEN DONE PROPERLY?
The benchmarks and standards for cleanliness of healthcare facilities and hospitals are set on the basis of ATP or Adenosine Triphosphate testing. You can use this technology to assess the effectiveness of the disinfection process used by the service provider.
But you cannot prove the proper cleaning and disinfection of a surface if the service provider has no arrangement for this test.
HOW DO YOU DISINFECT BIOFILMS AND OTHER SURFACES?
During the present period of crisis due to the outbreak of Coronavirus many disinfection services are facing a considerable decline. Most of these companies are panicking these days due to the loss of business.
Now with the increasing demand for disinfecting surfaces, they assume that they can provide the right solution for this problem. But most of them lack the training and equipment required to disinfect the effect of Coronavirus.
They usually try to justify the effectiveness of their services by fogging the disinfectants or disinfecting any surface by spraying disinfectant and wiping it. But these are not effective ways to disinfect surfaces and touchpoints coated with biofilm.
Actually, many cleaning services have converted their business into disinfection services to cover up their losses.
The disinfection service you choose should use devices for respiratory protection and PPE for the protection of their staff along with the right type of disinfectants to disinfect your premise for Coronavirus effectively.
It is very important not only for you but for the service provider also.
HOW CAN YOU ENSURE MY PROTECTION IN CASE OF ANY MISTAKE BY YOU?
The disinfection service you choose must have insurance coverage of adequate amounts against pollution.
Thus, by asking the questions discussed in this write-up you can easily choose the right HOME DISINFECTION SERVICE in your area. You can be more confident about the quality of the services provided by your service provider after assessing him on the basis of this questionnaire.
