1. Don Your PPE

  • Wear a vapor respirator if anyone has been sick or possibly infected with COVID-19 within the last 14 days

2. Clean and sanitize all door handles and light switches first including the entry door

  • Clean & Sanitize at least 1′ completely around them
  • Follow the procedures below for proper cleaning and sanitizing

3. Prepare the areas to be cleaned

  • Remove loose items from the desk or surface
  • Set them neatly on the chair or other surface in the room or cubicle

4. Change the towels, fill 1 bucket for cleaning and 1 for sanitizing

  • Fill each bucket with 1 gallon RTU (Mediclean – 2 Oz per Gallon)
  • Place about 10 microfiber towels Blue or other color in the other Wash bucket
  • Place about 10 microfiber towels Red or Orange for Final Sanitizing in 1 bucket

5. Clean all surfaces and items that might get touched

  • Spray Mediclean RTU
  • Wring out the microfiber cloths before using – Blue
  • Wipe off with clean towels, using as least 1 towel per work station depending on soil, but don’t clean more than 1 work station with the same towel. This will prevent cross-contamination!
  • Be careful with phones, keyboards and other electronics
  • You can spray the keyboard a little heavy and place face down on the Blue cloth and let it drip out. Or immediately wipe it off after you spray it.
  • On Items that should not be sprayed use a damp Blue cloth, and clean thoroughly 
  • Leave the towel hanging on the door frame or knob so you know that it was cleaned but not sanitized. Or under the keyboard
  • Place extra used towels in plastic wash bag – never place a used towel back in the bucket!!!

6. Sanitize all surfaces and items that might get touched – remove Blue towel that was the marker

  • Spray Mediclean RTU on surfaces that can be sprayed, needs to be wet and stay wet for 10 minutes, so spray enough but don’t make a mess
  • Wring out a Sanitizing towel
  • Wrap the phone receiver with it and cover phone keys with remaining part of towel – Red or Orange
  • Start next cube or office while this one is allowed to dwell

7. Dwell – All surfaces must stay wet or damp for 10 minutes

  • Wipe down all surfaces with a damp fresh cloth with Mediclean-Use the towel that we wrapped the phone with
  • This will include electronics like keyboards, mouse, computers, printers, etc…
  • Use same cloth and cover keyboard and mouse so they stay in contact with Mediclean

8. Optional: Wipe off and dry polished surfaces and glass before they completely dry to prevent streaks, only use clean dry towels

  • Inspect each cube or office
  • Chairs should be back in place
  • Pick up towels left on key boards
  • Look for streaks and buff off
  • Replace items you moved back and repeat above procedure to any areas that the items were left.
  • Wipe down light switches and door handles with Sanitizer again before leaving building.
  • Never place a used towel into a clean bucket! Otherwise you will contaminate your cleaning or sanitizing solution.
