How to Disinfect Business Premises in Malaysia

The government has just announced that some economic sectors are allowed to be in operations during the Movement Control Order. You could be in a business which involves lots of close interactions among the residents such as educational centers, daycare centers, clinics, dentists, pharmacists, and gyms, among others. Therefore, needing very frequent premise sanitations in order to maintain customers and staff’s confidence as well as effective disease transmissions control.

In another scenario, if one of your workers have been in close contacts with someone who tested positive for COVID-19 and you decided to be safe than sorry, you might want to engage in the services of a disinfection company.  

You could be a business owner and one of your biggest nightmare is here: you just received a call from the authorities doing contact-tracing for COVID-19 positive cases: Somebody who checked-in your business premise has been tested positive! Now you’ll not just have to conduct a thorough disinfection of your business premise but also report yourself for antigen swab tests. 

What should you do next after deciding that you would like to sanitize your work premises? Broadly speaking, there are two options you can consider: either Do-It-Yourself, or engage in professional help.

DIY Disinfection

If you’d prefer to roll up your own sleeves and work your muscles to disinfect your business premise, you may act in accordance to the advisories issued by the
World Health Organization (WHO). It was reported that regular household cleaning and disinfection products that you can get in your neighborhood stores are effective in eliminating viruses from household surfaces. 

In the cases of suspected or confirmed COVID-19 presence, surface virucidal disinfectants, such as 0.05% sodium hypochlorite (NaClO) and products based on ethanol (at least 70%), can be used. That explains why many alcohol-based and antiseptic cleaning products were flying off the shelves. Correspondently, many household stores see increased sales of cleaning tools like mops, pails and microfiber cloths.

Engage in Professional Disinfecting Services

If the thought of rubbing hundreds of door knobs, light switches, handles, desks, laptops and floors multiple times a day is extremely tedious to you, or if you’re in need of a thorough deep cleaning to get your business ready for re-opening, you might want to get some help from the professionals and engage in the disinfecting services they provide.

There are many companies who offer good rates for their disinfecting services, ranging from RM0.05psf to RM0.20psf. There are also many different types of disinfecting services available. The three most common practices in accordance to Standard Operating Procedures issued by The Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI) are: surface disinfecting, spray and coat, and fogging/misting.

Surface disinfecting involves cleaning high-touch surfaces with disinfectant, much like what a DIY disinfection does. Some service providers spray and coat surfaces with a non-toxic, antimicrobial protective coating such as titanium dioxide which is said to offer protection up to 12 weeks. Fogging/misting is a method used to decontaminate difficult-to-reach surfaces and disinfect the air using compounds with suitable active ingredients, providing you a complete peace of mind.
