Cleaning a COVID-19 World

In these COVID times, society has placed a premium on cleanliness: Hand washing; wiping down shopping carts; wearing masks. The very definition of clean has changed to include, by default, sanitization and disinfection.

In response, we at Pappy Clean, as well as all Savvy cleaners, define three levels of cleanliness:

Cleaning

Washing away dirt, grime, and dust

...

This is the obvious step; the first step. Main ingredient: elbow grease!

Tools

Gloves

Microfiber cloths

Paper Towels

Vacuums

Mops

Steamers

Window Squeegees

(yes, we do windows)

Chemicals

Water

pH neutral detergent

 Sanitizing

Removing 99.9% of germs from sealed surfaces, and using an EPA-approved product known to be effective against COVID-19.

...

This step is used in bathrooms, kitchens, on sealed surfaces

Gloves

Microfiber Cloths

Terry Cloths

(on sealed non-wood floors ONLY)

Chemicals

We respect the dwell time on all products, which means we wet the item to be sanitized (such as water spigots), allow the chemical to dwell for the prescribed time, then wipe dry.

Disinfecting

Killing germs on surfaces after cleaning

...

We disinfect all high-touch areas to help prevent the spread of disease

Tools

We respect the dwell time on all products, which means we wet the item to be disinfected (such as metal door knobs), allow the chemical to dwell for the prescribed time, then wipe dry.
