CLEANING & DISINFECTING
Patterson Clean Living Services, LLC strives for customer satisfaction with our cleaning and disinfecting services. We are able to accomplish this by first educating both you the client and our staff on the difference between cleaning and disinfecting. It's very important to understand and know the difference between cleaning and disinfecting. Patterson Clean Living Services's staff will always provide the level of service requested with your health and safety in mind.
Cleaning works by using soap (or detergent) and water to physically remove the debris and germs from surfaces. This process does not necessarily kill germs, but by removing them, it lowers their numbers and the risk of spreading infection.
Disinfecting kills germs on surfaces to stop the spreading of infections. It is more practical to use disinfectants in everyday life but you must clean the surface first before the disinfectant will be effective.
Cleaning is an important first step because it physically removes dirt, organic matter and most germs from surfaces, but does not destroy some harmful germs that may remain. All surfaces must be thoroughly cleaned before disinfecting. This ensures that germs are not hidden from the disinfectant when it is applied.
Our policies and regulations are designed to help protect both our staff and our clients from infections, pathogens, and other dangerous bacteria that are the opposite of CLEAN. We use a hospital-grade disinfectant that is not only efficient in eradicating Covid-19, but a wide array of other bacteria and viruses, such as, Hepatitis (Multiple strains), HIV, MRSA/AUREUS, Staphylococcus, and a multitude of other common, and some not-so-common pathogens. We also update our information to continue our staff members' training and education in regards to technique, policy, and the latest guidelines from health organizations such as the CDC on breaking chains of infection and contamination. And, as always, we will continue to provide our staff with PPE (Personal Protective Equipment).
