Covid-Sensitive Cleaning Regimes

There is considerable discussion about the “what, how and when” of cleaning and disinfecting regimes related to Covid-19 in a workplace. After reading multiple informed and reliable sources of information, Sport Stadium Management in New South Wales has developed this simplified guide to help make decisions about the cleaning regime that suits the circumstance. 

Cleaning – is not the same as disinfecting

Ensure you carry on with the regular cleaning regime you had in place prior to the Covid-19 Pandemic. Cleaning keeps the soil load low and discourages the ability of any pathogen to remain on the surface. However, washing of hands with soap and water reduces the chance of an infection occurring. 

Disinfecting – is more effective when the surface is already clean 

Disinfecting occurs when a suitable agent and method is used in a place that eradicates the pathogen in a timely fashion. It is more effective on an already clean surface. 

Prevention – What needs to be cleaned and disinfected? 

In public spaces, to help prevent the spread of Covid19, the areas of focus for cleaning and disinfection can generally be divided into two simple categories. They are:  

  1. Frequently touched surfaces 
    • For example: Table tops | Doorknobs | Glass entry doors | Light switches | Handle and Rails | Telephones | Computer equipment (keyboard, mouse) | Toilets and bathrooms | Touch screens and ATMs
  2. Infrequently touched surfaces 
    • Touched Surfaces | Ceilings | Walls | Floors and Carpets | Windows
