At Cubix, Inc., we know you shouldn’t have to choose between protecting your employees and protecting your facility investments. But it’s important to realize that many disinfectant products can do permanent damage to your flooring and upholstery.
Testing has shown that:
- Some chlorine-based chemistries, such as bleach, can damage carpet fiber and alter color on flooring products.
- Disinfectants with “Quat” chemistry can interfere with stain performance and cause yellowing or staining. These chemistries can build up with repeated applications and can be difficult to remove.
- Disinfectants can include wetting agents, surfactants (soaps) and other ingredients that leave residues and lead to increase soiling if not completely removed.
We have carefully selected a disinfectant product, Sporicidin, that has been trusted by cleaning and infection-control professionals for over 30 years. Sporicidin provides hospitalgrade disinfection capabilities, but is gentle on your facility’s surfaces and will not damage your flooring or textiles or negatively impact their performance. It has been thoroughly tested to ensure that it will not cause yellowing, build-up, or resoiling, and will not interfere with your carpet’s stain-resistant capabilities.
milliCare is committed to keeping you and the environment as safe as possible. Sporicidin falls in the lowest EPA toxicity category possible, which is especially important when sanitizing large areas such as flooring.
Protecting Soft & Hard Surfaces
milliCare can provide both cleaning and disinfectant solutions for hard and soft surfaces throughout your facility with our Enhanced Hygiene Services. We use an EPA-registered List N disinfectant that is OSHA compliant and pH neutral with low toxicity. milliCare’s Enhanced Hygiene Services focus on lowering risk and maintaining facility wellness for building occupants while also preserving the value of your investments.
When disinfecting buildings, carpet hygiene is too often ignored. After we deep clean your carpet, we can apply a hospital-grade disinfectant, Sporicidin. This product deodorizes and sanitizes carpet in one step.
Furniture is also often forgotten, despite being a high-touch surface. After deep cleaning your furniture, we can apply Sporicidin. When cleaning work chairs, we clean both the fabric and hard surface, including armrests, back, and base of your chair. We can also apply disinfectant to your cubicle panels.
After we clean your flooring, we can apply Sporicidin, which disinfects hard non/porous surfaces and has long-term efficacy in killing bacteria that causes odors, which means you can expect your treated surfaces to smell fresh for up to six months.
Cleaning vs. Disinfection
While disinfection is important, it doesn’t replace cleaning. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends cleaning and source removal as the first step to proper disinfection. Cleaning removes germs, dirt and impurities from surfaces or objects. According to the CDC, “cleaning works by using soap (or detergent) and water to physically remove germs from surfaces. This process does not necessarily kill germs, but by removing them, it lowers their numbers and the risk of spreading infection.” This is especially true for soft surfaces such as carpet and the textiles covering chairs and cubicles, since they are more easily cleaned than disinfected. Cleaning extends beyond your offices. Our equipment is thoroughly cleaned after every job and our technicians are trained in basic cross-contamination preventative techniques, including hand washing protocol.
