We do our research so that we can bring the best possible solutions to customers.

What is an epidemic vs a pandemic?
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), “a pandemic is a worldwide spread of a new disease.” Before a disease is declared as a pandemic, it has to exceed a few other levels, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):
- When a disease occurs infrequently and irregularly.
- A constant presence and/or usual prevalence of a disease or infection within a geographic area.
- A sudden increase in the number of cases of a disease — more than what's typically expected for the population in that area.
- An epidemic that has spread over several countries or continents, affecting a large number of people.
Isn’t “clean”, “disinfect” and “sanitize” the same thing?
To the general public, these three terms — clean, disinfect, sanitize — are often used interchangeably. However, to a cleaning professional, these terms are not the same and can refer to very different outcomes. According to Public Health Canada and the U.S. Center for Disease Control, the definition of these terms are as follows:
- This refers to the removal of visible dirt and debris through the use of soap or detergent and water. While this process may remove germs from surfaces, it does not necessarily kill the germs. This said, the mere act of germ removal lowers their numbers and does help in reducing the risk of infection.
- With disinfection, germs are actually KILLED on surfaces through the use of chemicals. This process does not necessarily clean dirty surfaces or remove germs, but by killing germs on a surface after cleaning, it can further lower the risk of spreading infection.
- Lastly, the term sanitize has its roots in the word “Sanitary” which is defined as “of or relating to health”. When you keep this in mind, to sanitize means lowering the number of germs on surfaces to a safe level, as judged by public health standards or requirements. This can be achieved by either cleaning and/or disinfecting surfaces to lower the risk of spreading infection.
Not to confuse you anymore, but as an added bonus, we’ll also define the term “sterilize” which is the process in which chemicals are used to kill ALL microbial life including bacteria, viruses, spores and fungi. This is a process that is very rarely undertaken in a facility outside of a healthcare setting.
So, for a cleaning professional, our disinfection process for your commercial facility is routinely a 2-step process - We clean first, then disinfect - in order to provide you with a sanitary facility in which to work!
