Myth 1 – Everyone knows how to clean

This myth suggests that most employees are people who clean their home and therefore they know how to clean effective. This however is not true. The procedures for qualitative and methodical cleaning of a building cover wide range of activities which make the assignment much more complicated than a simple home cleaning. The effective practical training, constant feedback and the positive encouragement are the best ways to provide trained team who know how to reduce effectively germs and create an aesthetical and pleasing environment to the delight of visitors.


Myth 2 – Distinct products are required to clean each separate part

Many products have been made in order to deal with a certain contamination. But to have a large arsenal of cleaning products does not always ensure that you will clean everything. So in practice is most common to use effective, multipurpose cleaning products that can handle a wide range of different surfaces and dirt. Thus the cleaning process is alleviated, by using less cleaning products, less chemistry, but achieves an effective cleansing and disinfecting. For best results, the key is to follow the instructions on the label and use the prescribed amount of preparation, which will reduce its costs and increase the productivity.


Myth 3 – The employees know what is expected of them

Another myth is the assumption that the cleaning staff automatically understands what is expected of them and what comprises their responsibilities on the basis of experience. This again is not true. The desired results or specific requirements for different types of buildings often are diverse and should be clearly presented, so that employees know what the processes are and of course expected outcome.


Myth 4 – It looks clean, so it’s clean

Maintaining a clean building is important, but the goal of any effective cleaning is to remove all contaminants that give and provide suitable conditions for the propagation of bacteria, not just the visible dirt. In addition, effective cleaning procedures should also include disinfection. Well planned (or organized) cleaning system can reduce the transmission of infectious diseases, to create a positive atmosphere, to improve the vision and reduce odors.


Myth 5 – Every detergent can also be a disinfectant

Unfortunately, in order to achieve high results and reduce the bacteria in given environment, standard cleaning agents for various purposes are not always sufficient. For best results use preparations that serve as a disinfectant in hospitals for example. These products are designed to remove a wide range of contaminants and disinfect simultaneously.


Myth 6 – Spray and wipe and your job is done

When we talk about disinfection, the cleaning professionals should avoid just spray and wipe. Disinfectants must remain on the surface for the period specified by the manufacturer so it could be able to destroy bacteria and viruses. It is important always to follow the instructions for use because the time for action is different. The most commonly used objects, such as door handles, tables and chairs, handles on drawers, taps on the sink in the toilet, the holders of the toilet paper also require careful and regular cleaning to reduce the transmission of infections and the spread of bacteria.
