Enhanced Cleaning

Suggest not using the phrase Deep Clean. It is a laborious and detailed procedure that takes a lot of time. To the best of my knowledge the virus is easily eradicated with standard cleaning practices using a good quality disinfectant.
Suggest using the term Enhanced cleaning leading people to focus on what is specifically needed over and above standard cleaning programmes to focus on further reducing risk of infection. For instance in public facilities almost continuous wiping and cleaning of all contact surfaces in public areas.
We also intend to trial foggers to disinfect large areas quickly.

Why the contribution is important

It keeps operators focussed on controlling the spread of the virus in public buildings and does not overly stretch resources by trying to carry out frequent deep cleans. Areas have to be closed for these and the chemicals use are often aggressive and can cause skin damage.

IF you stick with the term deep clean more detail on what you mean by it must be given.

    Sounds plausible, helpful and reasonable. If this method and terminology is to be adopted then is there enough disinfectant stockpiled for that purpose? Lessons from PPE situation.
