After the building is closed down, a notice is put up that it is in the process of deep cleaning. Deep cleaning involves performing a thorough cleaning and disinfecting protocol the facility to reduce the risk of people getting sick with coronavirus. The following are 5 tips on cleaning property to prevent the spreading of the coronavirus disease.1. Use Electrostatic Disinfectant Sprayer
The easiest way to perform deep cleaning is to use a electrostatic disinfectant sprayer. The mist allow the disinfectant solutions to better adhere to the surfaces. The device is originally used in the agricultural industry to apply chemicals. Research shows that electrostatic sprayer is 8 times more effective than an uncharged sprayer.

2. Use Soap and Bleach
On the other hand, you can also use soap and water to disinfect the surfaces. The coronavirus is easy to destroy by household disinfectants such as regular antibacterial soap, isopropyl alcohol, diluted bleach and hydrogen peroxide. You only have to wipe the surfaces that are highly exposed, for example, door handles, and tabletops in a classroom. You can skip cleaning surfaces that are not touched often. However, maybe you are not sure which surfaces are often touched by the visitors. In this case, you should just clean all the surfaces.

3. Clean Dirty Surfaces Prior to Disinfecting
Dirty surfaces should be pre-cleaned prior to carrying out the disinfection protocol. In the disinfection protocol, you can spray the surfaces with household bleach that is diluted. Alternatively, you can use a cleaning liquid that contain at least 70% alcohol.

It is recommended to use one of the antimicrobial chemicals that is published at the EPA site as they have been proven to destroy germs that can spread respiratory illness. The disinfecting procedure will remove extra dirt on the surface. After it is disinfected, you must air dry the surface according to the instructions on the label. Disinfectant wipe should be disposed of after use.

4. Wear Full PPE Gear Prior to Cleaning
Cleaning workers should be completely encapsulated before entering into the building to perform the cleaning. Wearing a protective suit will protect you from getting infected because anything can happen. Full protective suits include two gloves, a full face respirator, and boot.

5. Keep HVAC Running
During cleaning, make sure you keep the HVAC running. If there is insufficient air circulation, it will be too humid and cause mold growth. After emptying the building, you can reprogram your HVAC system to match the occupancy. Ideally, the temperature in the building should be maintained between 55 – 80 degrees. To ensure your HVAC is running smoothly, make sure you clean the air ducts and use a high-efficiency filter.
