However, the COVID-19 pandemic brought a paradigm shift into these practices. A dire need emerged to prevent the risk of the spread of infections and diseases. It became the utmost priority to not only clean, but also disinfect and sanitize the entire premise as well as movable and non-movable assets. Our Business Facility Disinfection Program that focuses on industrial cleaning solutions can help you with exactly that.

Various studies indicate that the world is likely to witness more infectious diseases and pandemics in the future as a spillover from animals to people or due to climate change. The World Health Organization (WHO), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) continue to insist on thoroughly cleaning and disinfecting facilities with industrial cleaning solutions.

Hand sanitizers are not enough if you don’t sanitize the surfaces. When your employees touch an infected surface and then touch their face, they are at high risk of contracting diseases. This means that you need to clean, disinfect and sanitize everything on your industrial property on an ongoing basis.

Whether you are operating as a factory, manufacturing/production unit, warehouse, food production company, transportation provider, or maintenance zone, you must give priority to the health and safety of employees and customers. They expect it from you.

The typical high-contact infection points in industrial establishments are:

  • Machinery and tools
  • Equipment and control panels
  • Vehicles
  • Walkway and stair handrails
  • Office areas
  • Canteen areas
  • Rest rooms

NCH Asia Pacific provides an effective, economical, and comprehensive sanitization and disinfection program to keep your business safe and sanitized. In our Business Facility Disinfection Program, we recommend you follow these three steps for the most effective results:

STEP 1: CLEAN

Standard cleaning is a basic prerequisite to disinfection and sanitization. You can use soap/detergent and water for cleaning. It may not kill the germs but it removes dirt, debris, dust and other organic and inorganic materials that can hide bacteria.

If you disinfect or sanitize before cleaning, these materials can become breeding grounds for harmful microbes and can cause further contamination. They will reduce the effectiveness of disinfection and sanitization.

STEP 2: DISINFECTION

Disinfection inactivates or destroys harmful microorganisms that remain after sanitizing the surfaces. It can further reduce the risk of transmission of viruses and bacteria, including novel coronavirus.

STEP 3: SANITIZATION

Sanitization can further reduce viruses and bacteria on surfaces to a further safe level after cleaning. Sanitization may not necessarily eliminate them completely. However, you should not skip this step as it will decrease the transmission of infection.

You should carry out disinfection in the following areas:

  • High-Traffic Areas: These areas include doorknobs, security keypads, light switches, faucets, and elevator buttons.
  • High-Risk Areas: These areas include handrails and public bathrooms where germs spread faster.
  • High-Safety Areas: These areas include food preparation and handling zones.

It is important to note that cleaning, disinfecting, and sanitation should not be a one-time activity. You should do it regularly, preferably daily. The use of our industrial cleaning solutions will help keep the facilities as hostile to germs and bacteria as possible, reducing the occurrence of microorganisms.
