Limpio staff performing this cleaning and disinfecting:
Wear PPE. This may include N95 respirators, disposable gloves, protective clothing and eye protection. Gloves should be discarded after each cleaning.
Clean dirty surfaces using a detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.
Be trained on safe donning, doffing and disposal of PPE to avoid infectious disease transmission. Clean hands immediately after PPE is removed.
Be medically able to wear the type of respirator needed and trained on how to use it.
At present, the WHO and CDC recommend standard cleaning compounds or the enzyme-based solutions we employ in most biohazard cleanup and sanitation projects. The greater challenge is applying the right steps and techniques for wiping down and sanitizing surfaces so as not to cross-contaminate previously “clean” areas.
