cleaning vs. sanitizing

Bathroom Cleaning Checklist | Helping Hands Cleaning Services
Many people confuse the concepts of cleaning and sanitation, thinking they can be used interchangeably. While both are extremely important, you should focus on how to clean and sanitize your home, particularly in 2020 as we define a “new normal.” Imagine you’ve been digging in the dirt to plant some flowers. You have mud under your fingernails and your hands are grimy and visibly dirty. You rinse your hands with the garden hose, removing all visible dirt. Are your hands clean? Yes. Are they sanitary? No! You would need to use an antibacterial soap or hand sanitizer to sanitize your hands completely. On the flip side, if you rubbed hand sanitizer on your dirty hands without rinsing the dirt off, you’d still see dirty residue on your hands that the hand sanitizer couldn’t wash away. Your hands would be sanitary, but not clean. In your house, we use a combination of cleaning and sanitizing techniques to ensure that your home environment is both clean and sanitary. We dust, vacuum, and wipe surfaces to remove dirt, debris, dust, pet hair, and any other particles that are keeping your home from being clean. Then we sanitize; we use disinfectants that are safe for each surface to remove bacteria, mold, viruses, and other harmful substances that vacuuming or dusting alone can’t eliminate. For the deepest cleanings, we use electrostatic fogging to kill bacteria and viruses on all surfaces. Call us today and we’ll clean and disinfect your home, keeping you and your loved ones safe.
