Cleaning chemicals are getting a lot of attention these days as commercial businesses and industrial facilities continue to strategize on how to safely reopen and operate as efficiently as possible. That’s why here at Electronic Fasteners in Waltham, MA we’re ensuring that we have the products needed in the fight to disinfect.
At Electronic Fasteners, we understand the huge task of safely reopening a public space. It requires navigating new coronavirus cleaning and disinfection protocols and making sure personnel are properly trained to use cleaning chemicals. Clearly communicating facility practices to building occupants will be essential.
The CDC has compiled a helpful set of tips regarding COVID-19 and reducing the risk of exposure:
- Disinfectants kill germs on surfaces. By killing germs on a surface after cleaning, you can further lower the risk of spreading infection. EPA-approved disinfectants are an important part of reducing the risk of exposure to COVID-19. Alternative disinfectants can be used (for example, 1/3 cup of bleach added to 1 gallon of water, or 70% alcohol solutions).
- Store and use disinfectants in a responsible and appropriate manner according to the label. Do not mix bleach or other cleaning and disinfection products together–this can cause fumes that may be very dangerous to breathe in. Keep all disinfectants out of the reach of children.
- Do not overuse or stockpile disinfectants or other supplies. This can result in shortages of appropriate products for others to use in critical situations.
- Always wear gloves appropriate for the chemicals being used when cleaning and disinfecting. Additional personal protective equipment (PPE) may be needed based on setting and product.
- Practice social distancing, wear facial coverings, and follow proper prevention hygiene, such as frequent hand-washing and use of alcohol-based (at least 60% alcohol) hand sanitizer when soap and water are not available.
At Electronic Fasteners we carry an extensive inventory of cleaning chemicals for communities across the country. Whether you need alcohol-based hand sanitizer, soaps and dispensers, liquid disinfectants, or aerosol sprays, we have virtually anything you might need to make and keep your facility and your workers as safe as possible.
