Enhanced Disinfection Services
Create a healthy home for your family


Merry Maids has launched two new Enhanced Disinfection Services with one purpose - to protect you, your family, and your home or business.

We understand the world as we knew it has changed. Merry Maids has taken the time to carefully rethink how we could further improve our industry-leading home cleaning services.

To do this, we had to go back to school. First, we had to learn what we were facing. Secondly, we had to formulate how we could provide clients with a germ-free home environment. Lastly, we had to make careful adjustments to become a better service provider during uncertain times.

After speaking to experts across multiple fields, we carefully developed new methodologies and are now ready to implement new processes. Not only will these modifications provide every client with a clean home. Ultimately, homes will be much healthier with reduced exposure to harmful bacteria, germs and viruses.

Merry Maids is the leader in home disinfection and cleaning. By learning about microbiology, disinfectant chemistry and other important methodologies, we've armed ourselves with all the information required to create a germ-free home. During our research, we discovered that you don't need to rely on bleach and harsh chemicals either. Our ability to source purpose-built products allows us to effectively disinfect your home the safe and proper way.

From everyday health and safety to conquering cold and flu season, protect what's important with Merry Maids.

How our High Touch Surface Disinfecting works

Step 1:

Maids spray surfaces with a cleaning agent to loosen debris.

Step 2:

Maids use microfiber cloths to wipe, capture, and remove loosened debris

Step 3:

Maids spray surfaces with disinfectant and allow enough dwell time to kill bacteria.

Step 4:

After dwell time, maids wipe off any excess disinfectant from surfaces.

What does it do?

Our Extended Healthy Home Disinfectant Package uses a hospital-grade disinfectant that eliminates 99.99% of all harmful bacteria, germs and airborne viruses. Additionally, the product remains active after application. The disinfectant is applied to almost all surfaces and objects in your home or business by the method of fogging. The disinfectant is released as a mist in the air and as it falls, it destroys airborne microscopic bacteria and viruses. The disinfectant will fall like a blanket onto surfaces, bonding and curing to the surfaces to leave a protective microbe barrier. The protective barrier continues to destroy all harmful germs and bacteria that come into contact with surfaces in your business or home after application, even in between the washing of surfaces. This product is recommended to be applied every 30 days. Click here to learn more about how fogging works.

Do you own a business and are you looking to create a safe workspace for your staff and customers? Does your family create high foot traffic in your home? Whatever your individual circumstances, our Extended Healthy Home Disinfectant Package is the perfect solution for ensuring the continued safety of your family, staff or customers.

Destroys 99.99% of harmful
bacteria, viruses and fungi

Continues to destroy harmful bacteria and viruses that come in contact with surfaces after application. Product recommended to be applied every 30 days.

Non-toxic, water-based

Safe for both humans and
pets, this product has the
same toxicity as Vitamin C

No rinse or wipe required

Protective barrier won't wash off with normal cleaning

Unlike most disinfectants, this product does not use a chemical reaction to eliminate harmful germs and viruses. It uses physics to continue to kill germs and viruses after the product has been applied.

When is it performed?

When requested, our Extended Healthy Home Disinfectant Package is performed after a cleaning instead of our High Touch Surface Disinfecting. It is recommended to be applied every 30 days.

What surfaces can the disinfectant be applied to?

Our maids use a fogging machine which allows us to cover the entire interior of your home
with the disinfectant. Our disinfectant is safe to use on almost all surfaces and objects,

  • High Touch Surfaces (Light Switches, Doorknobs, Hand Railings, Appliance Handles, Toilet Seats, etc.)
  • Flooring
  • Furniture
  • Desks
  • Computers & Keyboards
  • Walls
  • Food Preparation Areas (e.g. Kitchen Countertops)
  • Upholstery, Couches and Sofas
  • Curtains and Blinds
  • Pet Bedding
  • Children's Toys
  • Carpets and Rugs
  • Baseboards
  • And More

How our Extended Healthy Home
Disinfectant Package works

Step 1:

Maids clean your home to remove dirt and soil from surfaces. This allows the disinfectant to effectively bond and cure to all surfaces.

Step 2:

We ask that any furniture you wish not to be sprayed be covered with a blanket. Additionally, we ask that all members of the household and pets are clear from the room for up to 20 minutes to allow the disinfectant to fall properly

Step 3:

Maids use ULV (Ultra Low Volume) Foggers to apply disinfectant to all surfaces. Surfaces can include flooring, walls, couches, computer keyboards, and beyond.

Step 4:

Maids allow the disinfectant to fall like a blanket on all surfaces, properly allowing it to air dry and take effect in 20 minutes.

Step 5:

The disinfectant leaves a protective barrier on your surfaces that continues to destroy harmful germs and viruses that come in contact with surfaces.

Step 6:

Our Extended Healthy Home Disinfectant Package is designed to allow washing of surfaces during protection. We encourage our clients to wash surfaces to remove dirt and soil that may build up within the shield, hindering it from doing its job

Is our Extended Healthy Home Disinfectant Package safe?

The hospital-grade disinfectant we use is food safe, child and pet friendly, fragrance free with no toxins, and free of harsh chemicals and bleach. The disinfectant can be fogged over most surfaces and objects in your home or business. These include food preparation areas, children's toys, dog bowls, and so on. The disinfectant kills 99.99% of surface and airborne germs and bacteria. There's no wipe or rinse required after the disinfectant is fogged.
