How We Can Help
According to CDC, cleaning visibly dirty surfaces is the first step towards preventing illnesses, especially respiratory illness in households.
However, that may not be enough to make the environment healthy.
Polluted air may still cause illnesses. ProGeneralService aims to help households enjoy clean air by offering HVAC air duct maintenance and cleaning services.
Does ProGeneralService offer household disinfecting services?
The focus of ProGeneralService is to help households achieve the first step, as recommended by CDC.
We focus on cleaning to remove dirt, germs and impurities from surfaces. By doing that, we aim to help minimize the risk of spreading infections.
Unlike cleaning, disinfecting involves the use of chemicals to kill germs. The process of disinfecting surfaces eliminates germs, but does not necessarily leave the surfaces clean.
We are mainly focused on cleaning, but ProGeneralService also helps in disinfecting.
ProGeneralService Recommendations to Keep the Home Safe:
The CDC provides very good advice on how to keep a hygienically safe and healthy environment.
It recommends routine cleaning of surfaces that people frequently touch. Surfaces such as:
- light switches
need constant cleaning using household cleaning material as well as EPA-registered disinfectants.
ProGeneralService advises following the CDC guidelines in order to reduce risk of infections.
For other surfaces and materials, such as carpets, the CDC has specific instructions on how to clean them. The CDC recommends following the accompanying instructions to clean visible contamination on porous surfaces such as carpets, drapes and rugs.
Using EPA-approved products is then recommended to eliminate emerging viral pathogens. That would help make the environment safer for the family.
How Good is the CDC’s Advice on Cleaning Carpets?
The CDC provides some good advice on how to clean porous surfaces, which include carpets, drapes and rugs.
It advises using appropriate cleaners for the surfaces. It further recommends the use of appropriate EPA-approved products to fight pathogens in these porous surfaces.
Following these recommendations would help reduce the risk of infections from these porous surfaces. The recommendations are based on scientific findings.
At ProGeneralServices, we recommend following these guidelines by the CDC to make your home safer by cleaning your carpets effectively.
