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. 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 wants to help achieve that.

NOW OFFERING: 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.
