In these challenging times, the importance of deep cleaning services is evident and vital to prevent the spread of harmful viruses.

When choosing a commercial or industrial cleaning company to ‘deep clean’ your premises what should your first considerations be?

It should be training and qualifications.

A deep cleaning service should be carried out only by professionals

It is important to ensure that any deep cleaning of your commercial or industrial premises is done correctly. 

A deep cleaning service or treatment should be completed by experienced and trained people. Otherwise, it can lead to the spread of bacteria and viruses or the cross-contamination of surfaces.

There are strict standards and measures in place that industrial and commercial cleaning companies should follow to ensure an area is effectively cleaned.

What is a deep cleaning service?

A deep cleaning service is complete disinfection and targeted clean of premises. The majority of deep cleans focus on the interior of commercial or industrial premises.

Deep cleaning is methodically sanitising and disinfecting a comprehensive range of surfaces with the appropriate methods, techniques, and chemicals.

Every inch of surfaces including walls, floors, benches, handles, doors, switches, anything and everything where bacteria can live on are treated with specific techniques. 

A trained professional knows exactly where to deep clean and how.

The purpose of deep cleaning

The purpose of deep cleaning is to remove all bacteria from surfaces that will protect people against infection of viruses and harmful bacteria. Deep cleaning,  sterilisation, and disinfection require different types of methods, chemicals, and techniques. 

Every possible exposed surface where bacteria or viruses may have been in contact with is treated.

Our staff have up-to-date knowledge of the latest techniques, chemicals and methods of cleaning. It is important to keep your knowledge up to date as the cleaning industry is fast-moving, and new techniques and chemicals are introduced regularly.

Deep cleaning and Covid19

The Ministry of Health has advised that Covid19 can live on different surfaces for varying lengths of time.

The times will vary and depend on various factors such as surface material or type, humidity, and temperature. Plastic and stainless steel surfaces appear to host the Covid19 virus for up to 72 hours.

It is for these reasons that the Ministry of Health suggests a deep clean to reduce the risk of community transmission.

Why are the correct training and qualifications important?

New Zealand has extremely high cleaning standards, especially when around deep cleans due to Covid19

There are particular PPE requirements, chemical requirements as well as methodology or techniques.

A deep clean of surfaces should be done in a certain order so that there is no cross-contamination of bacteria or viruses.

Experienced and competent cleaning companies should be used to complete deep and thorough cleans of premises, especially in the fight to stop Covid19.
