Disinfecting Tips and Tricks From the Chem-Dry Experts


Disinfecting has become more of a priority now than ever before. Though we all want to be free of COVID-19, we are still needing to take precautions against it. One major way to do that is through disinfecting. 

Our team cares about your health and wants to give you some tips to disinfecting your home on your own.

  • Clean with soap and water before disinfecting. This gets rid of the larger particles and some of the bacteria. This gives your disinfectant an easier surface to work on. 
  • Let the disinfectant sit. When cleaning we tend to wipe the spray away just after it touches the surface. For disinfectant to work properly it needs to sit to fully get rid of the viruses and bacteria. Depending on the product it may take 1-10 minutes. 
  • Read the labels. Not all disinfectants are the same. They all have different compounds and are used differently depending on the active ingredients within them.  

We are always here to help with our professional hospital grade disinfectant. With our disinfecting service we also offer a protective antimicrobial coating to surfaces that were disinfected, inhibiting the growth and spread of microbes (bacteria and algae) on contact for up to 3 months. Our professional care will leave your home safe and clean for weeks.
