Should you clean before disinfecting?

Clean
*Wear disposable gloves to clean and disinfect.
*Clean surfaces using soap and water, then use disinfectant.

Maids and Moore Helping Cancer Patients During COVID-19

By Lucy Lee, Cleaning For A Reason

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

MAIDS AND MOORE SAFELY DISINFECTING HOMES & OFFICES

Austin and Conroe, Texas – May 6, 2020 Since opening in 2008, Maids and Moore Cleaning Services has been teamed up with Cleaning for a Reason, a nonprofit serving cancer patients. For over 12 years, Maids and Moore has donated house cleanings to a total of 195 cancer patients with a donated value of $66,315 in cleanings. Maids and Moore was recognized by Cleaning for a Reason as the 2018 Top Maid Service Partner for most cancer patients served.

“Cleaning for cancer patients is a meaningful part of our business,” said owner Holly Moore. “We all know someone who has battled cancer and understand the value of what it means to be supported at this difficult time. We’re honored to focus on their homes, while these patients focus on their recovery and time with family.”

Moore emphasized, “During this coronavirus pandemic, our homes and offices need to not only be cleaned—which means removing visible dirt, dust, and debris—but also to be sanitized and disinfected. While sanitizing reduces the occurrence and growth of bacteria, viruses, and fungi, disinfecting actually kills the pathogens of viruses and such organisms—making it more effective to rid the surface of such viruses.”

Maids and Moore is helping cancer patients by cleaning and disinfecting at least 15 homes per month for two consecutive months at no charge. This service will include their EPA-approved disinfecting misting service. The only requirement is that the homes be within the company’s existing territories of Travis and Montgomery counties and surrounding areas.

“Deemed an essential business, Maids and Moore is proud to do our part to help stop the spread of COVID-19,” said Moore. “Now more than ever, our clients, and especially the cancer patients, need our support to help ensure clean, safe, and healthy environments. We are prepared to both clean and provide our EPA-approved disinfecting misting service that kills pathogens for viruses, including COVID-19. We are now ‘cleaning for health’ as we slow the spread of infectious elements. Our staff has been trained to follow all CDC guidelines, including use of masks, gloves, and booties when entering a home or office.”

Giving the Gift of Love through FREE Disinfecting Cleaning Services

NOW OFFERING FREE EPA Approved disinfecting house cleaning services and Disinfecting Misting Service to households battling cancer

Year-round Maid and Moore Cleaning Services offer FREE house cleaning services to households with men, women, and children battling cancer through Cleaning For A Reason, a non-profit organization.  In light of our current situation, with COVID-19, for the whole month of May, we will be offering FREE Disinfecting Misting Services for an added layer of protection along with FREE disinfecting house cleaning services.

During a time, such as this it is important to not only clean our homes which removes visible dirt, dust and debris but also disinfect them.  With COVID-19 now in our daily life, we have all been compelled to take a closer look at our household cleaning. Visibly clean is just not good enough anymore.

Now, more than ever before we are seeking a level of clean that compares to that of healthcare facilities.  Hospitals are required by regulation to use EPA approved disinfectants to eliminate 100% of the organisms (virus, bacteria, fungi) present on a cleaned surface. Although not required by regulation, we want our customers to have the same safety and security that comes with this level of disinfection.

Maids and Moore is always looking for ways to improve our service and by adding EPA approved disinfectant and offering our new Disinfecting Misting Service, we are meeting the level of disinfection our customers need. We should all feel safe in our home environment and Maids and Moore want to help achieve that. Especially, for those that are battling cancer with compromised immune systems. We strive to make time for what matters most and to provide an environment for healing.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“I wanted to express my appreciation to Maids and Moore and Cleaning for a Reason. I can’t tell you how much it means to have had my house cleaned by your team. When I was first told of the cleanings, I didn’t think I needed the help and I felt as a mother that I could do it all. And by asking or accepting help I couldn’t be a good Mom. After spending almost 8 months in and out of the hospital with my oldest son fighting cancer. I realized I couldn’t keep up with the house work. And having two more children and a husband at home as you can imagine made it even harder! My focus needed to be on my son and being there for him during the good and bad days. Your service allowed me to focus on what really matters most and still be able to have a clean home to come home to after our weeks stays at the hospital. It was one less worry, one less thing to do for this Mom. And for that, I can’t say Thank you enough! I guess it’s a pride thing, I have always cleaned my house myself and letting someone come into our home was letting you into our haven. I’m so glad I did! What Holly Moore and the whole team is doing to help those going through treatment is amazing! I can’t say enough good things!”  
~Lori Samarron

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“I wanted to thank you all for coming out and helping me with the house.  It was a God send. Y’all are truly amazing, and this help could not have come at a better time.”  ~Sibel Mandalinci

The Difference Between Cleaning, Sanitizing, and Disinfecting

Clean House Tips

During a time, such as this it is important to not only clean our homes which removes visible dirt, dust and debris but also disinfect them.  A misconception is that sanitization is the same as disinfecting. This is not true.  Sanitization is meant to reduce, not kill, the occurrence and growth of bacteria, viruses and fungi. Disinfecting a surface will “kill” the pathogens of viruses and such organisms. Making it more effective to rid the surface of said viruses. All EPA approved disinfectants have specific instructions and dwell times required to effectively kill pathogens. If not done as directed this would not be disinfecting rather sanitizing. Maids and Moore is trained and prepared to clean our customers’ homes and businesses and provide disinfecting services.

With COVID-19 now in our daily life we have all been compelled to take a closer look at our household cleaning. Visibly clean is just not good enough anymore. Now, more than ever before we are seeking a level of clean that compares to that of healthcare facilities.  Hospitals are required by regulation to use EPA approved disinfectants to eliminate 100% of the organisms (virus, bacteria, fungi) present on a cleaned surface. Although not required by regulation, we want our customers to have the same safety and security that comes with this level disinfection.

NOW OFFERING: EPA approved Disinfecting Misting Services

What is Disinfecting Misting and How Does it Work?

Using a misting machine is a way of quickly and evenly coating a surface with a disinfecting solution. This is done by using a misting applicator to apply EPA approved disinfectant to all surfaces.

•Maids and Moore use a disinfecting solution that EPA has registered to kill level 2A (lowest level), 2B and 2C (highest level) emergent viruses. This disinfectant solution is registered with the EPA at the highest level 2C for emerging viral pathogens. COVID-19 was placed as a level 2A status (the lowest level).

•When this EPA certified disinfecting solution is mixed into the misting applicator it will dispense a mist on to surfaces that will kill pathogens to viruses such as COVID-19. The mist will reach in the hard to clean areas such as air ducts, cabinets, drawers, etc. Applying this EPA approved disinfectant to surfaces with the appropriate droplet size ensures a dwell time of solution on the surface of 1-minute kill time.
