The Difference Between Commercial Cleaning Services and Disinfecting Services


Office disinfecting service for covid-19 and flu

A global pandemic has actively shifted the way we think about cleaning. Businesses had to close. Some still remain closed, and others are just now slowly opening up. Commercial cleaning companies are in a bright spotlight as businesses need disinfecting services now more than ever.

When it comes to cleaning services, it’s easy for people to confuse commercial cleaning and disinfecting services. 

So what is the difference? 

Commercial cleaning companies do basic cleaning. They make sure surfaces and carpets are free of dust and dirt. They clean smudges off mirrors, and they empty the trash.

Disinfecting services take things one step further. They use equipment and chemicals to kill microbes like the coronavirus and the flu virus. These services are obviously in particular demand during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Which is best for my business? 

During more normal times, companies could often get by hiring a good commercial cleaning company. The goal was to make sure the office looked tidy and clean, and commercial cleaning companies are very good about making sure that happens.

Now, in a world struggling with a pandemic, disinfecting services are becoming even more essential by the day. Any business that plans to have employees working in an office has to take safety into account. Disinfecting services can make sure the office is healthy and viruses removed from surfaces that can spread from one employee to another.

Should I find a company that offers both services?

Yes! The most effective way to make sure the office is safe and surfaces cleaned of germs is to hire a commercial cleaning company that also provides disinfecting services.

The best disinfecting can only be done once a surface is clean and free of dirt and dust.
