SAN MARTINO DI LUPARI, ITALY, March 23, 2020: FILA, a leader in professional surface care solutions, is ready to respond to Covid-19 cleaning demands. In fact, FILA follows current CDC cleaning guidelines.
According to the CDC website:
Cleaning “refers to the removal of germs, dirt and impurities from surfaces. It does not kill germs, but by removing them, it lowers their numbers and the risk of spreading infection.”
Disinfecting, on the other hand, is defined as “using chemicals to kill germs on surfaces. This process does not necessarily clean dirty surfaces or remove germs, but by killing germs on a surface after cleaning, it can further lower the risk of spreading infection.” The CDC further specifies that if surfaces are dirty they should be cleaned using a detergent or soap and water before disinfecting.
Why is cleaning surfaces before disinfecting them so important?
Nicola Brunello, Technical Assistance and Training Manager at FILA explains, “It’s useless to disinfect before cleaning surfaces because through the cleaning process we actually eliminate the habitat where germs and bacteria grow.” Maria Soranzo, FILA’s Head of Research and Development, further reports, “Cleaners can remove up to 70% of germs and bacteria due to the chemical synergistic action of the cleaner and the physical tool used for cleaning.” In fact, dirt on a surface can actually covers up germs, and killing them becomes more difficult.
FILA introduces CLEANALL SPRAY, a neutral, multipurpose everyday cleaner for all household surfaces. The fast-drying biodegradable formula won’t harm even the most delicate walls, floors and countertops, while leaving the room smelling fresh and clean. CLEANALL SPRAY is ideal for bathroom and kitchen cabinets, office furniture and laminated surfaces. The product leaves no residue and does not require rinsing, a characteristic particularly important when trying to keep germs at bay, since residue actually creates a nesting ground for germs and bacteria.
Use CLEANALL SPRAY for those spills on counters, tables, desks and even for spot cleaning ceramic, porcelain, stone and wood floors – just spray and wipe!
