Know the difference between cleaning, disinfecting, and sanitizing

Cleaning removes germs, dirt, and impurities from surfaces or objects. Cleaning works by using soap (or detergent) and water to physically remove germs from surfaces. This process does not necessarily kill germs, but by removing them, it lowers their numbers and the risk of spreading infection. Disinfecting kills germs on surfaces or objects. Disinfecting works by using chemicals to kill germs on surfaces or objects. This process does not necessarily clean dirty surfaces or remove germs, but by killing germs on a surface after cleaning, it can further lower the risk of spreading infection. Sanitizing lowers the number of germs on surfaces or objects to a safe level, as judged by public health standards or requirements. This process works by either cleaning or disinfecting surfaces or objects to lower the risk of spreading infection.

Here at Jenver Janitorial the disinfectant that we are using is electro static spraying.

This disinfectant far exceeds other products on the market, not only in effectiveness but also longevity. It continues to work after it dries.

Monofoil is an EPA registered hospital grade disinfectant which is very different than other disinfecting products. Most disinfectants on the market today only work for 10-15 minutes, when they are wet. Once dry, surfaces and environments are unprotected and re-contamination can happen at any time, but not with Monofoil.

Monofoil is a dual action disinfectant that kills 99.999% of microbes (viruses, bacteria, mold, mildew and algae) on contact and then creates a barrier that continues to control microbes long after it dries. Monofoil kills microbes thru a physical process, not a chemical process. This Physical kill does not allow for microbe resistance, mutation or super bugs.

Monofoil can be applied to any surfaces including fabrics and textiles. The nano polymer technology bonds Monofoil on a molecular level to anything it is applied to. This technology is key in controlling microbes.

Monofoil underwent lab testing for COVID 19, one of the first to do so. Monofoil now has their “final complete test results” and now has officially been tested to be effective in killing and controlling the following viruses with MonoFoil.

  • SARS-CoV-2 (Covid 19)
  • SARS–CoV
  • MERS-CoV
  • Influenza A Virus (H1n1)

MonoFoil is the first product in the US to actually have been tested in an independent lab and found to be effective in killing SARS-CoV-2 in a 3 minute dwell time! Monofoil also kills the other strains of the listed Corona virus as well as H1N1!!!. The flu season will be approaching soon.

Here is a link to a recent news spot featuring Monofoil.

I am happy to answer any questions you may have and provide information on the disinfecting services we offer.

Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that are touched often

Follow your school’s standard procedures for routine cleaning and disinfecting. Typically, this means daily sanitizing surfaces and objects that are touched often, such as desks, countertops, doorknobs, computer keyboards, hands-on learning items, faucet handles, phones, and toys. Some schools may also require daily disinfecting these items. Standard procedures often call for disinfecting specific areas of the school, like bathrooms. Immediately clean surfaces and objects that are visibly soiled. If surfaces or objects are soiled with body fluids or blood, use gloves and other standard precautions to avoid coming into contact with the fluid. Remove the spill, and then clean and disinfect the surface.

Simply do routine cleaning and disinfecting

It is important to match your cleaning and disinfecting activities to the types of germs you want to remove or kill. Most studies have shown that the flu virus can live and potentially infect a person for up to 48 hours after being deposited on a surface. However, it is not necessary to close schools to clean or disinfect every surface in the building to slow the spread of flu. Also, if students and staff are dismissed because the school cannot function normally (e.g., high absenteeism during a flu outbreak), it is not necessary to do extra cleaning and disinfecting. Flu viruses are relatively fragile, so standard cleaning and disinfecting practices are sufficient to remove or kill them. Special cleaning and disinfecting processes, including wiping down walls and ceilings, frequently using room air deodorizers, and fumigating, are not necessary or recommended. These processes can irritate eyes, noses, throats, and skin; aggravate asthma; and cause other serious side effects.

Clean and disinfect correctly

Always follow label directions on cleaning products and disinfectants. Wash surfaces with a general household cleaner to remove germs. Rinse with water, and follow with an EPA-registered disinfectant to kill germs. Read the label to make sure it states that EPA has approved the product for effectiveness against influenza A virus. If a surface is not visibly dirty, you can clean it with an EPA-registered product that both cleans (removes germs) and disinfects (kills germs) instead. Be sure to read the label directions carefully, as there may be a separate procedure for using the product as a cleaner or as a disinfectant. Disinfection usually requires the product to remain on the surface for a certain period of time (e.g., letting it stand for 3 to 5 minutes). Use disinfecting wipes on electronic items that are touched often, such as phones and computers. Pay close attention to the directions for using disinfecting wipes. It may be necessary to use more than one wipe to keep the surface wet for the stated length of contact time. Make sure that the electronics can withstand the use of liquids for cleaning and disinfecting.

Use products safely

Pay close attention to hazard warnings and directions on product labels. Cleaning products and disinfectants often call for the use of gloves or eye protection. For example, gloves should always be worn to protect your hands when working with bleach solutions. Do not mix cleaners and disinfectants unless the labels indicate it is safe to do so. Combining certain products (such as chlorine bleach and ammonia cleaners) can result in serious injury or death. Ensure that custodial staff, teachers, and others who use cleaners and disinfectants read and understand all instruction labels and understand safe and appropriate use. This might require that instructional materials and training be provided in other languages.
