The Case For
Disinfection​

TGM Disinfection Services realizes that we have an ongoing pathogen problem. We’ve dug into the data and we realized that we can help businesses and institutions do better.

According to a 2011 study, Canadians took an average of 9.3 sick days in the course of the year. It is estimated to cost the Canadian economy $16.6 billion based on the cost of lost salaries, presumably due to illness.

Why
Disinfect?​

Cleaning removes germs and dirt from surfaces. Cleaning does not kill pathogens or germs. Disinfection on the other hand is an additional measure that uses chemicals to kill germs and pathogens which further lowers the risk of spreading infection. 

Most businesses and institutions do their best when cleaning; however, an industrial and specialized disinfection approach is required because viruses are difficult to contain.

This is an excerpt taken from the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention:

  • Cleaning refers to the removal of dirt and impurities, including germs, from surfaces. Cleaning alone does not kill germs. But by removing the germs, it decreases their number and therefore any risk of spreading infection.
  • Disinfecting works by using chemicals to kill germs on surfaces. This process does not necessarily clean dirty surfaces or remove germs. But killing germs remaining on a surface after cleaning further reduces any risk of spreading infection.
We enough equipment and staff that allows us to disinfect up to 300,000 square feet of space per day.
