While it is paramount that you clean and disinfect your home daily – in addition to washing your hands and wearing a mask when outdoors – having professional disinfection services done can help you create a safe, virus-free living environment for both you and your family during these difficult times. Green Clean NC can disinfect your home using hospital-grade disinfectants that have been proven effective against COVID-19 as well as other viruses and diseases.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends disinfecting “high-touch surfaces” daily using EPA-registered disinfectants, a diluted bleach solution, or a 70% alcohol spray. Make sure to follow label instructions to ensure effectiveness, as most products’ “contact time” varies. To prepare a bleach solution, according to the CDC, mix five tablespoons bleach per gallon of water or four teaspoons bleach per quart of water.
Clean and Disinfect
Cleaning is done to remove germs, dirt, and impurities from surfaces. Most households do this by dusting, vacuuming, and washing surfaces with soap and water as part of a regular cleaning schedule. Remember to use a separate cleaning cloth, disinfecting wipe, or paper towel for different tasks to avoid cross-contamination. Launder towels after each use and throw sponges in the dishwasher with every load.
To effectively eliminate germs, however, you must disinfect a surface using chemicals after cleaning (CDC, 2020). Green Clean NC’s disinfectant services are designed to help you maintain a healthy living or working environment by killing 99.9% of harmful microorganisms in homes, offices, and schools in the Greater Raleigh-Durham area.

While more research is needed, a new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine,” shows that this virus can live on surfaces between four hours and three days. Cleaning frequently handled surfaces with soap, followed by wiping them down with an approved disinfectant, is crucial for your health and that of your loved ones.
You should be disinfecting hard surfaces such as your doorknobs, light switches, countertops, stove knobs, remotes, gaming controllers, computer components, toilets, sinks, and faucets each day.
