Our commitment to you and our employees is to first follow all of the recommendations from the CDC and World Health Organization. Our technicians and employees are required to follow the recommendations which include, but are not limited to:

- We are frequently cleaning and disinfecting all our equipment with
professional-grade, EPA-approved disinfectant.

What Is The Difference Between Cleaning, Sanitizing and Disinfecting?
Most important to understand is that cleaning does not kill bacteria, viruses, or fungi, more commonly referred to as “germs”. Instead cleaning is done to remove “germs” usually by combining water, a cleaning product, and scrubbing. Cleaning is still a vital step in the cleaning process as removal of dirt and debris can make way for products and methods that do kill ‘germs’ to be more effective.
Disinfecting and sanitizing methods on the other hand refers to products that work by killing germs on a surface after cleaning, further lowering the risk of spreading infection. Sanitizers reduce bacteria on a surface by at least 99.9% in as little as 30-60 seconds. Disinfectants kill 99.99999% of a wider range of microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses, fungi, and mold, but can take up to 10 minutes or longer depending on the product.
These methods work great on all surfaces like natural stone including marble, granite, and limestone; upholstery, fabrics, and drapes; and carpets and area rugs on hard non-porous surfaces.
