Disinfecting Floors Creates a Healthier Environment
A clean environment is essential in protecting the health of people living in or using a particular space. A huge part of achieving a healthier environment is a hygienic floor. This is particularly true in buildings such as hospitals and food preparation facilities, where it is imperative that the entire environment is devoid of germ-carrying dirt and dust. For such facilities, removing dirt on floors is not enough; floors also need to be disinfected to ensure that there are no viruses and bacteria clinging to the surface.
Floors are easily the first part of the room that gets dirty as people bring in dirt with their shoes. Before floors can be effectively disinfected, dust and dirt must first be removed. Sweeping floors with a broom is not a good option as this will only make the dust airborne and eventually settle on the floors again. To thoroughly remove dust, it is best to use a heavy-duty vacuum cleaner, preferably one with a high-efficiency particulate air filter.
Finding the Right Detergent
It is vital to use effective detergent to get rid of dirt and grease stuck on floor surfaces. The right detergent must be capable of killing harmful microorganisms that pose threats to human health. The choice of detergent will depend on the type of surface. If there are carpets installed, then the detergent must be suited for extraction machines. For floors that are frequently exposed to oils and grease, a grease-cutting detergent is needed.
For all types of floor surfaces, Custom Chemicals International can offer powerful yet safe detergents and cleaners. Floor care products from the company are specially formulated for tough cleaning without damaging the surface. The company’s cleaning products are also proven to be effective in removing dirt, oil and stains on specific surfaces and in killing microorganisms trapped on those surfaces.
Choosing the Right Disinfectant
Harmful germs can be destroyed using effective disinfecting detergents and cleaners. They work as the floor finish is immersed in the disinfectant for a few minutes. Using a mop or scrubber, microorganisms get drowned in the cleaning solution. When selecting a disinfectant, it is important to choose one that can effectively kill a great number of viruses, bacteria and fungi. Even with the strength to destroy microorganisms, the disinfectant must not be corrosive or irritating to the skin or eyes.
Custom Chemicals International provides disinfecting cleaners that can handle hard-to-remove stains from floor surfaces. The company offers products that are bio-degradable, water soluble, phosphate free and designed to handle hard water.
