How Can Your Office Benefit From Hiring a Professional Cleaning Service?

If you run an office, your days are probably so filled with meetings and appointments that the last thing you think about is staying after to clean the place once everybody goes home. Not only would it add several hours to your day, but it would absolutely drain your energy and make it harder for you to complete the other aspects of your job. You could hire someone to join your staff as a janitor, but adding someone to your payroll can be too costly of a solution. Because of this, it makes sense to hire a professional office cleaning service to handle the janitorial services your office needs.

What does the phrase “Kills 99.9% of Germs” REALLY mean?

Sanitizers

Frankly, not much.

This type of statement and other similar ones that are used in the marketing of many common disinfectants can be misleading and potentially dangerous if it is the primary reason you are choosing a particular product.

Imagine you are concerned about the flu virus and you want to use a disinfectant that will be effective against all of this year’s Influenza types and strains. If a disinfectant claims that it will kill 99.9% of germs, it should kill 99.9% of the flu germs on a given surface, right? And, if killing 99.9% of germs is good, then a product that says it will kill 99.99% of germs should work even better, right?

WRONG. On both questions.

Some of the most popular disinfectants sold in the United States are effective on only a small number of pathogens. Many of these products have marketing statements that say the product “kills 99.9% of germs*.” However, somewhere on the container in small print is the list of germs it actually kills, and this list of germs may or may not include some or all of the Influenza viruses.

The Truth About 99.9%

When a marketing claim of “kills 99.9% of germs” is used, it may or may not kill the specific variety of bacteria or pathogen you need killed. By law, disinfectants must list the microorganisms which a product has been tested for and found to be effective against on their label, as well as proper dilution and directions for use. Check the label for the specific pathogens you need protection from.

All Disinfectants Are Not Created Equal

Many people think that all disinfectant solutions are basically the same and the only differences are color, fragrance, and maybe the dilution ratio. The truth is that there are many different formulations which vary primarily based on chemical composition, efficacy claims (what it is proven to kill) and dilution ratios.

Common types of disinfectants used for facility maintenance may include active ingredients such as quaternary ammonium (quat), sodium hypochlorite (bleach), hydrogen peroxide, silver ions, iodine, acids or alcohol – each of which may be effective on different strains of pathogens.
