COVID-19 brought heightened awareness to the need for healthy indoor spaces. According to a survey by the American Cleaning Institute, 85% of respondents say they are likely to maintain the same level of cleaning practices initially adopted during the pandemic. As we continue to learn more about the nuances of cleaning and disinfecting, how can we be confident our cleaning practices are effective?
