Disinfection Service

Professional Disinfection Service in Singapore

Since the COVID-19 pandemic, there’s been increased awareness about surface disinfection. National Environment Agency (NEA) has also released guidelines on effective disinfection of homes or workplaces when active COVID-19 infections occur. 

Although the risk level of COVID-19 has gradually subsided, the need for disinfection remains to protect indoor spaces against other forms of viral outbreaks, not just COVID-19.

The Importance of Disinfection Service

Disinfection is crucial for eradicating active infectious pathogens that can rapidly spread on surfaces, particularly in high-traffic environments like offices, schools, and shopping malls. 

Routine cleaning may remove most germs, but surface cleaning alone cannot thoroughly eliminate active viruses. Therefore, disinfection services play a vital role in providing an additional layer of protection by ensuring thorough disinfection of all surfaces, including hard-to-reach areas.

Sanitizing vs. Disinfecting

What is the difference between sanitizing and disinfecting? The distinct difference between cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting can be defined by the different levels of microbial elimination each of the processes can achieve:

  • Cleaning surfaces removes germs, dirt, and other impurities but does not necessarily eliminate all the microorganisms.
  • Sanitizing reduces the number of microorganisms on surfaces or objects to a safe level under public health standards or regulations.
  • Disinfection provides a high level of elimination of pathogens on surfaces and objects.

In summary, sanitizers are weaker than disinfecting solutions. Disinfectants can eliminate 99.999% of germs and viruses on nonporous and hard surfaces, while sanitizers can only achieve up to 99.9% elimination of the pathogens.

During a viral outbreak

Besides COVID infections, many other viral infections can cause serious health risks, such as the commonly known Hand Foot Mouth Disease (HFMD) and gastroenteritis. Commercial operators that report a number of infection outbreaks are also required to disinfect their premises to control the viral rampage.

Post-infection recovery

After a home recovers from an infectious illness, homeowners may want to disinfect infected rooms to prevent cross-contamination among family members. As elderly people have weaker immune systems, it would be more critical to ensure the residence is thoroughly disinfected if there are older people residing together with infected members.

Post pest termination

Cockroaches and mice are bacteria carriers. Thus, it is vital to disinfect the space after engaging a pest control service to eliminate the pests. The thorough disinfection of surfaces is necessary to ensure no bacteria residue is left behind after pest termination.

How does De Hygienique Disinfect Surfaces

We use an electrostatic discharge fogging system to ensure thorough coverage of disinfectant on affected surfaces or objects. This system releases fine mists of disinfectant, completely covering the surface or object. 

For high touch points like door handles, telephone handsets, computer keyboards, toilet seats, and tables, we would disinfect the surfaces through a thorough wipe-down with a disinfection solution. 

Disinfection treatment is not a task that should be carried out by untrained individuals. To effectively disinfect surfaces, a well thought task force is required to plan and carry out the executions.

Frequently Ask Questions

Disinfect and sterilize are both processes of decontaminating harmful microorganisms. The difference is mainly their level of elimination. Disinfection process is generally known to eliminate or reduce harmful microorganisms on surfaces. Sterilization usually refers to complete elimination of all microorganism.

De Hygienique uses electrostatic disinfection technology for thorough disinfection of surfaces. The machine discharges fine mists of disinfection solution onto infected surfaces.

Duration to complete a disinfection treatment depends on space size and condition. In average, we take about 45mins to disinfect a 2000sqft space.

The cost of disinfection service ranges according to treatment requirement and the size of the space. For a basic disinfection service for a 2000sqft space would cost about $200. There is a minimum charge of $300 per trip.

You may consider engaging disinfection treatment if there were recurring cases of infected illness occuring in your residence or workplace. Common recurring infectious illness such as HFMD and influenza may need a thorough disinfection treatment to stop the viral cycle.

During the disinfection treatment, we would disinfect all soft furnishings including carpet, sofa and bed. However, the duration of disinfection protection would last longer on hard surfaces. Soft furnishings have uneven porous surfaces which traps dirt and bacteria more easily than hard surfaces. This makes soft furnishings more difficult to withstand disinfectant protections.

Disinfection treatment is critical for childcare and eldercare centres as they serve age groups who are more vulnerable to infectious diseases. These places should be disinfected at least every 3 months once.
