Cleaning vs disinfection

Understanding the importance and difference between cleaning and disinfecting is the first step in staying healthy and fighting COVID-19.  According to the CDC, cleaning means removing germs, dirt, and impurities from the surfaces using soap and water.  Cleaning does not kill germs but reduces the number of germs that live on a surface.  When to comes to making a surface germ-free, cleaning followed by disinfecting is the suggested method.  First, you clean to remove the dirt and germs.  Then, you use the disinfecting chemicals to kill the remaining germs on the surface.  The CDC recommends that you clean and disinfect household surfaces on a regular basis to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other germs.  Call SERVPRO of Novi/Commerce South for any cleaning needs at your business or residence at 248-344-0044
