Deep-cleaning surfaces is a critical first step in any environmental cleaning program. Before an area can be properly disinfected, surfaces must be thoroughly cleaned to remove surface-level germs as well as soil, buildup, or residue that may harbor or hide additional lingering germs.
RTU Or Concentrate—Which Should I Use? Ready-To-Use (RTU): These pre-mixed products offer a convenient and trouble-free experience without the need for additional steps or dispensing systems.
Concentrates: Concentrated products are often more economical, less costly to transport, and require less space to store than multiple pre-mixed products.
Once a surface has been deep cleaned, the next step is disinfection. Applying a disinfectant to hard, nonporous surfaces typically kills 99.9% or more of germs, bacteria, viruses, fungi, mold, and mildew (as indicated by the product's label). For lightly soiled surfaces, a one-step cleaner/disinfectant may be sufficient.
EPA Registration—What Does It Mean?
A product registered with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will always communicate the proper application dilution (for concentrates), application method, contact time (dwell time), method of removal, and specific organism targeted (kill claim) on its label.
Area maintenance is part of an overall environmental strategy that includes cleaning and disinfecting. Products that maintain are designed to keep spaces, surfaces, and objects—like appliances and plumbing—looking and functioning their best.
Why Does Maintenance Matter?
In addition to cleaning and disinfection, routine maintenance helps create an environment that is not only safe and healthy but also visually appealing. Well-kept areas improve overall resident satisfaction and are instrumental in attracting and retaining business.
Prevent spots and stains from spreading by applying Zep® Instant Carpet & Upholstery Spot Remover in a "halo" around the spot and working inward (rather than directly to the spot and working outward). Be sure to blot first with a clean cloth. (Vigorous scrubbing can damage carpet and upholstery fibers.)
Remove fingerprints, water spots, and other residue from stainless steel, aluminum, brass, and other metal surfaces with Zep® Stainless Steel Cleaner & Polish. When cleaning around sensitive areas, like elevator buttons, apply product to a clean microfiber cloth rather than directly to the surface.
Treating Concrete Stains
For heavy grease and oil spots on concrete, pretreat with a strong solution of Zep® Industrial Purple. Dilute product 1:6 (1 part product to 6 parts water) in a spray bottle and apply directly to the spot. Let the product stand for a few minutes, but do not allow to dry. Scrub with a durable scrub brush attached to the Maintenance Warehouse® Quick Change Pole, then rinse. Tip: Because concrete is very porous, stains can penetrate deeply. Multiple treatments may be needed to draw grease and oil to the surface.
