Your employees eat at work on a regular basis and let’s be honest, dogs, cats, and other animals aren’t known for being the cleanest creatures. Whether they track in dirt from outside or just jump on the counters after walking around in the office, an animal in the kitchen is not sanitary. Your kitchen is already one of the dirtiest places in your office, so keeping it clean while adding in a pet is an extra challenge.

With so many people suffering from allergies, having an office pet could be causing some of your employees to suffer symptoms such as scratchy eyes, congestion, skin rashes, coughing and more. The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, suggests improving air quality by vacuuming, dusting, and washing.

At D’s Cleaning Service, we can help improve air quality by cutting down on pet dander with services including general cleaning, carpet shampooing, and dusting.

 

Windows

First impressions are important, and pets can make great ones when they greet visitors with a tail wag or a friendly meow.

You can end up looking a little unprofessional with smudges on all your glass. D’s Cleaning Service cleans all those smudges away so your pets and your clients have a clear view.

Know the Difference Between Cleaning and Disinfecting to Improve Your Regular Cleaning Routine

When people use the phrase, “the floor is so clean that you could eat food off of it” they are giving the highest compliment they can give on the state of the floors. While most people who say this would not actually eat their meals from the floor, it still seems important to clarify that there is, in fact, a difference between a surface being cleaned and one being disinfected. While cleaning and disinfecting do go hand in hand, there is a difference in what the two accomplish. So, if you think that a floor looks so clean that you could eat from it, think again.

 

Cleaning and disinfecting products use different chemicalsCleaning and Disinfecting Products Use Different Chemicals

Cleaning products are generally soap-based cleaning products that work well to remove dirt and grime. They can also remove some germs from surfaces, but in order to get that healthy clean your home or office needs, it’s best to use a disinfectant. A disinfectant will eliminate the germs and bacteria that can easily spread from surface to surface. In order to eliminate these microorganisms, you need a product that is designed to eliminate them from surfaces.

Cleaning and disinfecting products use different chemical ingredients in order to be effective in what they need to remove. Several cleaning products that claim to be used for both a cleaning and disinfecting may not always be as powerful as you may think. Professional cleaning companies such as D’s Cleaning Service take the time to separate their cleaning and disinfecting efforts to maximize their efforts in eliminating dirt, grime, and germs from your home or place of business.

 

Germs and Visible Grime Are Not Cleaned the Same Way

Just because a surface appears clean does not necessarily mean that it is free from germs and pathogens that can make you sick. If you spill something on your counters that leaves a smelly, sticky residue such as maple syrup, you would use a cleaner that would remove the mess from sight. The same goes for other stains you may have on carpets, clothes, and any other surface. Germs, however, cannot be seen and cannot be removed the same way. Pathogens require more powerful agents to be properly removed, which is why disinfectants are necessary to use whenever someone has a virus or any kind of infection that can spread from person to person.

 

Always Clean Before You DisinfectClean before you disinfect for a clean room

Whenever you are needing to eliminate the germs from your home or office, cleaning and disinfecting go hand in hand. In order to effectively disinfect your surroundings, you must clean first. Disinfectants require a clean surface so the chemicals can reach the germs whereas regular cleaning is a one-step process.

To clean and disinfect properly, start by wiping down the area with a cleaning product to remove the dust and grime buildup on the surfaces. This will give your home or office surfaces a clean appearance. Once the surfaces have that sparkling clean, use a disinfectant to properly erase the germs and pathogens to reduce the risk of illnesses from spreading and reproducing.

If your home or workplace needs a proper cleaning and disinfecting, call D’s Cleaning Service to give your place an extra shine and create a healthier environment. Using, industrial grade cleaning and disinfecting products, your floors and surfaces will be so clean and germ-free that you could eat off of them.
