A year ago, Cinderellas upgraded our sanitising and disinfecting capabilities from purely chemical based sanitising to 2.5pH “Electrolyzed Hypochlorous Acid” Kangen Water sanitising on 30th April 2019.
This process of cleaning is 100% chemically free, non toxic and fully bio-degradable. We can’t run out of sanitiser because we own the machine that makes it! This means we have unlimited supply and we aren’t dependent on a supplier. We can continue to protect OUR staff and OUR clients around the clock 24/7.

Can Cleaning prevent the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19)?
We’ve all seen it on the news: Concerned Australians are snapping up key supermarket items, toilet paper and cleaning supplies since the coronavirus pandemic hit Australian shores. Here are some key facts when it comes to COVID-19 in combination with our hygiene and cleaning routines.
First of all we have to look at how does Coronavirus (COVID-19) spread?
The virus can spread from person to person through small droplets from the nose or mouth which are spread when a person with COVID-19 coughs or exhales. These droplets land on objects and surfaces around the person. Other people then catch COVID-19 by touching these objects or surfaces, then touching their eyes, nose or mouth. People can also catch COVID-19 if they breathe in droplets from a person with COVID-19 who coughs out or exhales droplets. It is important to make sure you, and the people around you, follow good hygiene and keep their surroundings clean.
How long does the virus survive on surfaces?
It is not certain how long the virus that causes COVID-19 survives on surfaces, but it seems to behave like other coronaviruses. Studies suggest that coronaviruses (including preliminary information on the COVID-19 virus) may persist on surfaces for a few hours or up to several days. This may vary under different conditions (e.g. type of surface, temperature or humidity of the environment). If you think a surface may be infected, sanitise it to protect yourself and others. Wash your hands with soap and water or sanitising hand gel. Avoid touching your eyes, mouth, or nose.
Cinderellas has been assisting medical centres and surgeries in Australia with their cleaning tasks for 30 years. Can cleaning prevent the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19)?
The WHO suggests that droplets of infected people around you can land on objects and surfaces around the person. Therefore it is important to make sure you, and the people around you, follow good hygiene and keep their surroundings clean. It is recommended to clean touched surfaces frequently, such as light switches, doors, doorknobs, push plates, chairs, telephones, keyboards, computer mice, fridge and microwave doors, kettles and anything people are likely to touch and especially if someone is sick.
If you have a totally dry, clean surface the germs cannot grow and multiply, much in the same way as if we as humans do not have food and water we cannot survive; bacteria cannot survive without water and nutrients.
What is the difference between bacteria and viruses?
Bacteria are single-celled microorganisms that thrive in many different types of environments. Some varieties live in extremes of cold or heat. Others make their home in people’s intestines, where they help digest food. Most bacteria cause no harm to people, but there are exceptions. Viruses are even smaller than bacteria and require living hosts — such as people, plants or animals — to multiply. Otherwise, they can’t survive. When a virus enters your body, it invades some of your cells and takes over the cell machinery, redirecting it to produce the virus.
What can you do to protect yourself and prevent the spread of disease?
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for 20 – 30 seconds.
- Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good hygiene.
- Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact such as kissing, hugging, and sharing cups or eating utensils with people who are sick.
- Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue or shirt sleeve, not your hands.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces, such as light switches, doors, doorknobs, push plates, chairs, telephones, keyboards, computer mice, fridge and microwave doors, kettles and anything people are likely to touch and especially if someone is sick
- Stay home when you are sick.

How are we doing this?
- We use liberal amounts of 2.5pH sanitser on all touch points and everywhere we go
- All our microfibre cloths are new or laundered before use
- We don’t use cleaning consumables or microfibre cloths on your site that have already been used on another site
- Our mop heads are sanitised after every use with hot water and/or sanitiser
- Our cleaning kit which includes our caddy with our cleaning sprays and mop bucket are sprayed with a sanitising mist before and after every clean on every site
