When cleaning actually saves lives
Whilst many people are told to stay at home, cleaners are doing essential work to ensure everyone’s safety. But cleanliness and infection prevention are challenged by the very definition of cross-contamination - a constant influx of people who can be exposed to pathogens or act as carriers themselves. Now, more than ever, quick and efficient cleaning is of the utmost importance.
What is Covid-19
Covid-19 is a new strain of coronavirus, which spreads person-to-person. Symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, muscle aches, shortness of breath, and unexplained loss of taste and smell. Symptoms range from mild to severe and appear 2-14 days after one is infected.Sources:

Our cleaning recommendations for Covid-19
Clean frequently touched surfaces and objects every day. These include -but are not limited to- the floor, counters, tabletops, doorknobs, keyboards, and staircases. Clean bathroom fixtures, toilets en bathroom spaces (including the floors and walls) at least 2 times per day.
- Wear gloves while cleaning
- Check the regulations of your country regarding safety equipment and what to wear
- Clean surfaces with stubborn dirt (e.g. stains, liquid spills) with a wet system that dries instantly (i.e. i-mop)
- Clean surfaces without stubborn dirt with a dry system. We recommend microfiber as it reduces germs up to 99%
- Vacuum only when the vacuum cleaner has a good filter, preferably HEPA or ULPA (i.e. i-vac). Do not vacuum in high-risk areas such as an intensive care
Hygiene is mission critical
We need to go far beyond the visual cleaning of all obvious surfaces to eliminate the risk of contamination. Every facility, building and workplace is under extensive scrutiny. After all, this is the point where sanitation intersects with controlling a pandemic. The standards are high. Lives are on the line.
Cleaning with a battery-powered vacuum cleaner is a huge time saver. The cordless freedom makes moving around easier and quicker while eliminating the risk of tripping over cables. The cassette filter prevents tiny harmful particles like dust, bacteria and dust mites from being reintroduced back into the environment. Improved air quality is the result.View more i-vac

Instead of wasting time and money moving mats out of the way, clean your floors with i-matt in place. It stays put up to 12 weeks. You can i-mop right over its low profile, durable, quick-drying surface. The walk-off coverage captures water and dirt at the door, while the super-thin absorbent material spreads the water out so the mat dries fast - keeping floors dry, clean and safe.View more i-matt
