some companies Are Not Qualified or Trained for VIRUS & PATHOGEN disinfection
There are tried and true methods for whole house or whole business disinfection. These methods have been rigorously tested and shown to be most effective against 99.99%-99.9999% of pathogens such as common bacteria and viruses.
Reputable companies have invested a lot of resources to learn and perfect these disinfection methods. These reputable companies were either in existence before the current COVID-19 crisis or carefully learned the exhaustive process to properly disinfect a home or a business.
In every disaster, unfortunately there are opportunists. There have been reports of entrepreneurs who saw an opportunity to sell disinfection services, and have started to offer such services without the proper training, materials, tools, and or understanding of how viruses and bacteria work.
Even regular over the counter disinfectants have to be used in a specific way otherwise they won’t actually kill anything. They have to be sprayed or wiped on in a specific manner, and then left on the surface for a specified amount of time. Failure to read and follow these instructions can result in bacteria, viruses and other pathogens continuing to pose a threat.
This means that someone in great need of whole house or whole business disinfection can pay for these services, expecting to have surfaces without pathogens when the disinfection job is finished, yet still have surfaces that are harboring dangers because the least expensive person was hired to do the job. This leads us on to the next potential issue…
Popup and low budget disinfection services Create A False Sense Of Security
People operate differently when they believe that surfaces have been disinfected and dangerous pathogens have been killed compared to when they believe that the pathogens are potentially all around. Generally people will become more relaxed with hand washing, doing so less frequently or not as thorough, and will also be more relaxed about where they put their hands too.
In some cases, stores and businesses are paying for professional disinfecting services before allowing people most at risk for the coronavirus inside. But if the person doing the disinfection service is low budget, or doing a subpar job, or is under qualified, the disinfection service provided may not actually kill the viruses and bacteria. And those vulnerable patrons and visitors are still in danger and risking exposure.
Thinking that something is disinfected without it actually being disinfected can create a false sense of security, and this can create a waterfall of negative effects and liability for the store or business who hires a disinfection service that is not fully reputable.
Spreading Pathogens Throughout The Environment
What method is the person performing your disinfection service using to kill and eradicate the bacteria and viruses within your environment? If there is any force of air from tools used during the disinfection process, or if improper tools and methods are used, then you can have someone who ends up just blowing around bacteria and viruses all over your interior spaces.
Study after study shows that some of the most common household items are really breeding grounds for harmful germs. Many people use these items to clean other things – thereby spreading the viruses and super bugs. Think of a household sponge – people often use a single sponge to clean multiple surfaces, and to clean other things throughout their home too. This can spread the bacteria and viruses to areas that didn’t have any to begin with.
If a person performing disinfection services is not properly trained and qualified, there can be lapses in care to include improperly disinfecting their own tools and supplies. And this lapse in care can potentially bring pathogens from other places into your home or business too.
Where is the last place this the person performing your disinfection services cleaned? Was it a hospital? Do you want germs like that in your home or business environment? Invest in a professional for a thorough and proper disinfection done the right way.
Yes, There Is Cost Involved With Quality Disinfection Services
If someone comes in to a business or home to kill germs, there is a certain amount of labor and supplies involved.
It takes money to run a disinfection business, to hire and train or certify employees, to conduct research (or be a part of a research system), to innovate germ-killing processes, and more. This means that there is going to be a certain level of a minimal pricing that needs to be charged to make sure that you are well protected, that your home and business are safely and thoroughly disinfected, and that your disinfection job is done well and right.
