In the light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, cleaning and disinfecting workplaces, retail settings, and other facilities have become extremely important.

As a facility owner, you need to regularly clean and sanitize frequently touched surfaces and objects, such as door handles, chairs, telephones, desks, coffee machines, and others, to curb the spread of the virus. This is especially important if your facility holds many people at the same time — employees and workers, for example — as they may contaminate these surfaces with pathogens, including the deadly novel coronavirus, which can be picked up by other people and lead to the spread, causing disease and illness.

If you want to keep your workplace or facility free of COVID-19 and other pathogens, here is a list of items you should invest in today for effective cleaning and disinfection:

Nitrile Gloves

Whether you are hiring a cleaning company to do the job or having your in-house staff do the job, you should have nitrile gloves in the list of cleaning and disinfection supplies. You can also go for latex gloves, provided your cleaning staff isn’t allergic to latex.

Soap or cleaning agent

This is essential for regular cleaning of your facility.


While a cleaning solution works best for regular cleaning, you need something stronger to eliminate all the pathogens present on the surfaces. And this is where a disinfectant comes into the picture. You should look for an EPA-registered disinfectant for your facility.

An electrostatic sprayer for disinfectants

To effectively and efficiently spray disinfectant on surfaces, you will need a sprayer. For the best results, look for a professional cordless electrostatic handheld sprayer since it enables you to reach every nook and corner of your space and does its job efficiently.

PPE Kits

Since disinfectants are chemicals, they can pose health risks, such as eye damage, skin burns, and others. To prevent that, invest in a properly-rated respirator mask, eyeglasses, and protective gown and wear them when disinfecting your facility.

Microfiber cloths and paper towel

After spraying the disinfectant on surfaces, such as desk, chair, machines and other, you will need to wipe those surfaces with a microfiber cloth or paper towel for effective disinfection. Remember to either dispose of the wipes or clothes after each use or thoroughly clean them using a reliable cleaning solution.
