What is Cleaning?

Cleaning is a process where you remove the larger debris of dirt and soils on the horizontal and vertical surfaces of your home and office. By doing that, you are able to reduce the number of bacteria and germs on those surfaces but not totally killing them.


Typically, cleaning is done with the use of water, detergent or liquid soap, and cloth. Before cleaning, make sure to wear rubber gloves so as to avoid irritation of your hands from strong cleaning agents.


What is Disinfection?

In contrast, disinfection involves a higher level of sanitation where you will be using disinfectants to completely eradicate those bacteria, microorganisms, and viruses inside your home and offices.


There are plenty of known brands and chemicals of disinfectants sold in grocery stores and pharmacies in your town. Our technicians only use eco-friendly disinfectants to clean horizontal and vertical surfaces in your residence and commercial establishments.
