How to Safely Disinfect Your Home from Coronavirus, Bacteria, & More

Now more than ever, it’s essential to have a clean, sanitized home. The coronavirus (COVID-19) shows an unprecedented ability to live on surfaces in addition to its ability to pass through the air and from person-to-person contact.

It’s absolutely essential to thoroughly disinfect your entire home or business, including every surface, every material, and even the air passing through the building’s ducts. 

At Daniel’s Austin, we’re here to provide the most comprehensive cleaning, disinfect, and air filtration services available to keep you, your family, and your community safe. 

Complete Surface Disinfection & Sanitation

Our disinfecting services go beyond a typical scrub down to reach every possible surface in you home or business.

In addition to wiping down surfaces, our service technicians spray a fine mist of disinfectant that reaches every possible nook, cranny, and surface in the building. After allowing it to kill off germs, bacteria, and viruses for 10-15 minutes, our techs do another wipe down, ensuring there’s no leftover residue.

Benefits of professional disinfecting:

  • Proven against Covid-19. Our disinfectant is in the EPA’s List N, which are top of the line products to use against Covid-19 
  • Kills 100% of bacteria and viruses on hard surfaces. When applied by our professional service techs, this disinfectant can kill 100% of germs, viruses, and bacteria on hard, non-porous surfaces, such as some countertops and handles. 
  • Eco & family-friendly. Unlike other harsh cleaners or chemicals, this disinfectant is practically non-toxic and is not an irritant. 
  • Reaches beyond typical cleaning. Even the most thorough cleaning can miss a spot, which is why we utilize a mist to finely cover & clean every possible surface.

Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus’s ability to spread through the air, sanitizing surfaces is only half the battle. Without proper air purification, your home may be susceptible to the germs, bacteria, and viruses living in the ducts. To truly rest easy in your home, we also recommend air filtration with UV disinfection.

Disinfect Your Home’s Air with UV Sanitation

Even the most powerful air filters are only equipped to trap and hold contaminants of a certain size, meaning that anything small enough to fit through the filter’s fibers can travel unhindered through your air. Plus, even if the particles are large enough to be trapped in the filter, the germs, bacteria, and viruses living on those particles can continue to live and spread. 

Simply put, to ensure your air is purified and sanitized, you need more than a standard HEPA filter. That’s where UV light disinfection comes in.

How HVAC UV Disinfection Works 

UV air purifiers fit directly into your home’s ductwork with both a UV lamp and traditional air filter. The filter works to stop airborne particles and contaminants, while the ultraviolet light disinfects the air as it passes through to kill the germs, bacteria, viruses, mold, and other microorganisms living in your air.

There are a wide variety of air purification and filtration systems on the market, but ultraviolet light air filters are the best at fully disinfecting your home’s air and preventing the spread of disease. 

How does light do so much to sanitize your air?

UV light damages viruses, germs, and microbes at a cellular level to prevent them from reproducing or spreading. If the cells can’t reproduce, they can’t cause infections or spread across your home. All of the air in your home has to pass through this UV light, which means that it’s disinfected in mere seconds before it leaves your home’s ducts.

Our UV air purifiers kill 99.99% of all germs, bacteria, viruses, and mold to leave you with clean, truly filtered air.

Unlike chemical disinfectants, like bleach or chlorine, there’s no risk of accidentally contaminating your home with negative side-effects or fumes. UV light is perfectly safe to disinfect your air, water, and your home’s surfaces without the risk of contamination.

There’s no smell, no chemicals, and still no germs.
