Covid 19 Clean Up
How to clean your home to prevent COVID-19 spread
Watch our CEO on CTV News
There are a lot of questions and concerns regarding the rumours and myths on what works and what does not when it comes to cleaning up during these pandemic times.
More importantly, there are concerns on how to clean up safely.
We provide both Proactive and Reactive cleaning and sanitize/disinfect services for both large office areas, commercial spaces and residential homes
It helps a lot to understand what we are cleaning by reviewing this video that we did for CTV News the other day:
As you can see, there are films of matter on surfaces you cannot see and these films can harbor viruses.
For true sanitizing we need to remove 99.9% of the microbes. It is extremely unlikely that any spray of any kind is going to penetrate the film left of irregularly cleaned surfaces and offer a sanitize claim, let alone a disinfection claim.
The surfaces we offer are true cleaning wipe downs-clean and application of disinfectant.
As an extra protective measure –
We are now fogging Ultra-lyte upon entering the site for the safety of our workers when they don their personal protective equipment. We also fog the same product at the end of an extensive cleaning. This is the info from the Ultra-lyte website:

Pandemic Response & Bio-Security Planning
To our valued clients, and all those potentially affected by this threat
Your wellness, health & safety is our concern.
With the recent reports of Coronavirus in Ontario, we recognize the importance of bio-security, and potential pandemic preparedness. On the top of our minds is the overall safety of your staff, our staff and client stakeholders within the facilities we serve. While pandemics are unpredictable in their timing and severity, there are a number of precautionary measures we can and have taken to help protect your safety, the safety of your residents, employees and visitors.
All of us must go beyond traditional visual cleaning and focus on the disinfection of touch points and environmental harborages.
We have an Airborne Pathogen Disinfection Protocol. This utilizes a DIN certified, human-safe, proven, organic and highly effective disinfectant that kills ALL KNOWN bacteria, viruses, spores, and mold. This organic disinfectant can be applied by mop, spray, or fog, which is by far, the most effective way of disinfecting an area. People need not leave the area being fogged! Our staff are fully trained and prepared to apply this measure upon request, or train your people in it’s effective application.
We have every faith in the current Health Care system, and the protocols presently in place. The R J Chemicals Pandemic Response & Bio-Security Planning disinfection application is not a substitution, but an additional measure. It can be done in any facility, and has a proven track record to control outbreaks.
We understand that events like this can cause feelings of uncertainty and anxiety. As a trusted partner and provider of products for facility services, R J Chemicals is on guard to deliver precautionary measures to mitigate risk and enhance safety.

We have added this to the beginning and end of our cleaning protocol for the safety of our workers and to leave a residual that will take care of the germs we are worried about that are deep in the pores of the surface being cleaned.
