Things to Know About Disinfection Services in Singapore

Disinfection Services in Singapore
Singapore now requires disinfection services in public areas with high foot traffic such as shopping malls, office buildings, hotels, and restaurants that need more frequent disinfection. The service sometimes works along with sanitization. There are differences between sanitizing and disinfecting. Sanitizing reduces germs and bacteria on surfaces, whereas disinfecting helps kill germs. Disinfecting uses more vital chemicals than sanitizing to achieve better results in killing germs.


Disinfection services are an important aspect of maintaining a clean and safe environment, particularly in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. At SQ1 Development, we understand the importance of this process and provide our customers with professional disinfection services as a part of our cleaning services. We use specialized disinfectants and equipment specifically designed to kill microorganisms, including Covid-19 viruses.


Our team will disinfect all surfaces including door handles, light switches, desks, and chairs to ensure a germ-free office. We use electrostatic sprayers for efficient and even disinfectant coverage on all surfaces. We also provide after-cleaning disinfection services to improve the cleanliness of the environment. Additionally, we provide extra disinfection services before reopening spaces that have had Covid-19 cases to ensure the safety of employees and visitors.


Its purpose is to keep the atmosphere clean so that viruses do not spread to other people. Those areas have a higher risk of Covid-19 cases, which is a sign of warning to the owner of the premises to engage in disinfection services. Here are things you need to know about disinfection services in Singapore:


Coverage of areas

Commercial properties, such as office buildings, retail stores, medical centers, restaurants, and warehouses, need to be disinfected frequently. Although the Covid-19 pandemic has become endemic, we must still wear masks when we go outside. After a prolonged lockdown, people want to go out and public places like shopping malls become crowded. In order for building users to be safe, the building’s management needs to call for disinfection services on a regular basis.


After many people visited the building, the atmosphere was full of germs and viruses. You never know who is the carrier of the virus, so it is better to disinfect constantly for the next user. Other than commercial buildings, SQ1 Development also provides services for residential buildings like apartments and facility areas. The lobby, corridor, and gym facilities are places where many people gather. It is important to ensure the spaces are clean for the residents to feel safe.

Cleaning will come first because the surface must be free of dust and dirt before disinfection. We disinfect by using stronger bleach solutions on surfaces and objects. Disinfecting the surfaces can further eliminate bacteria and viruses. It can reduce the risk of disease spreading. People should not stay in a room that has not been disinfected in a long time. The accumulation of bacteria and viruses will cause people to get sick easily. We offer anti-microbial air treatment, carpet disinfection, thorough disinfecting, and upholstery disinfection. Our team of skilled professionals use misting machines with anti-microbial disinfectants for commercial, industrial and residential buildings.



What is the procedure for the disinfection service? Our specialists disinfect and only allow entry after wearing PPE. This is to achieve high hygiene standards and protect our staff from viruses. We first seal off the premises to allow the disinfectant to circulate, then use touchless electrostatic spray to disinfect.


We thoroughly disinfect every surface and object in the building using touchless electrostatic spray against bacteria, viruses, and fungi including Hand, Foot & Mouth Disease and Covid-19.  As for disinfection, we ventilate the building and provide a certification.

SQ1 Development uses five products for disinfection services. First of all, we are using Tersano® Stabilized Aqueous Ozone (SAO) Dispenser to clean, sanitize and deodorize the surfaces in a sustainable way. It is simple to use because it only needs tap water and oxygen from the surrounding area.


Besides, Tersano® SAO-4 Cartridge & SAO-24 Cartridge are used for filtration systems. It uses cold water to be infused with ozone and creates SAO. Next is the Tersano® iClean mini which is used as a cleaner and sanitizer. It uses tap water to transform into an effective cleaner that eliminates 99.99% of germs and viruses. The Tersano® PROscrub Deep Cleaner & Degreaser is a powerful product but is safe to use. It can remove chemical residues, grease, and dirt in a few minutes.


Lastly, the Tersano® PRObowl Multi-Purpose Descaler is a product suitable for bathrooms and showers. It is a multi-purpose descaler to remove hard water, minerals, and soap scum.



The National Environment Agency (NEA) sets guidelines on maximum noise emission limits for mechanical ventilation systems and air conditioning in non-industrial buildings. We ensure that our solutions and chemicals used for disinfection services comply with NEA guidelines to guarantee the health and safety of consumers. Our disinfection treatments have been scientifically proven to be safe for consumers and effective in fighting the Covid-19 virus.



Now is a crucial time to fight against the Covid-19 virus. Regular cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting are best practices for a clean environment. We recommend frequent cleaning and sanitizing, with disinfection done monthly for a safe and hygienic environment. Disinfection chemicals are too strong, and frequent disinfection will harm human health. It has to be strong enough to kill germs and viruses while also being harmful.


The effect of disinfection can last for a longer time in the air, which is why you don’t need to disinfect often. Excessive disinfectant contact causes skin irritation and breathing problems according to University of Missouri EHS. Besides that, it will also cause product deterioration, corrosion of metals, and bleaching effects on objects like fabrics. It is better to consult our experts before engaging in disinfection services.
