Cleaning and Disinfecting During COVID-19

As facilities reopen during COVID-19, properly cleaning and disinfecting are important steps in the process. Buckeye is committed to enhancing the performance and safety of its products along with providing proper training and education. Using Buckeye dilution systems, wearing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), following Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations, reading Safety Data Sheets (SDS) and product labels, learning how to use products safely, and following state, local and facility guidelines for wearing a face mask are all part of working smart.

Thoroughly clean objects and surfaces before disinfecting. The Eco® Proportioning Program provides products like Eco All-Purpose Cleaner, Eco Glass Cleaner HD, Eco Muscle Cleaner and more to clean all surfaces in your facility. Eco proportioning systems are closed, preventing exposure to concentrated products. They automatically dilute products, taking the guess work out of product dilution. Each Eco product is easily identified by color and number, eliminating product confusion. Clean restrooms, hallways, offices communal areas, and more with properly diluted products that make cleaning easier and quicker.

High-touch surfaces and objects must be disinfected daily. These include countertops, door handles, sink handles, faucets, hand railings, restroom stalls, light switches, phones, toilets, and computer equipment. Some high-touch areas may need to be cleaned more often depending on how often they are used. Stores should disinfect shopping carts and sale keypads before each use.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has compiled a list of disinfectants for use against COVID-19. This list contains several Buckeye products, including two Eco products, Eco Neutral Disinfectant E23 and Eco One-Step Disinfectant-Deodorizer-Cleaner E22. When disinfecting with Eco Neutral Disinfectant or Eco One-Step Disinfectant-Deodorizer-Cleaner, remember to let each disinfectant dwell for ten minutes to achieve complete disinfection.

Attain the best overall value for each dollar spent with the fully integrated Eco Proportioning Program, designed and manufactured with proprietary technology with you, the end-user, in mind. Effective, safer, economically and ecologically friendly chemistry; hermetically sealed, flexible and sustainable packaging; together with a simplistic approach to proportioning to protect and preserve your environment.
