This idea would be most effective, and beneficial if the deep cleaning were restricted to locations where viral, and other nasties, congregate in one
place on a frequent basis. By that I mean, that deep cleaning a house which has been maintained to a decent degree is probably utterly pointless in
the main. Hospitals, doctors surgeries, and homes which have had a below par maintenance history however, would be a good idea. If ones own home is
cleaned regularly (but not to the point of O.C.D.) then one need not be overly concerned by things like M.R.S.A. and other superbugs, because they
simply will not be present.
That said, my work has taken me to some damned dirty places. I should clarify what I am about to say, so that folks read it in context. I am,
personally, I wee bit of a slob. I do not own clothes which require ironing, I do not obsess over the appearance of my own room, and I dislike
organisation , because I personally feel that it is unnatural in the extreme for everything to have a proper place. Its proper place is where ever the
hell I leave it.
However, I am not a dirty person. I do not care a damn about dust, but my GOD I have been some places where every surface, vertical or horizontal,
has a film of some sort of sticky substance, usually a mixture of cooking fat and cigarette smoke. The floor will attempt to remove my boots for me,
simply by the merit of their soles having made contact with it under the pressure of my weight bearing down upon them. THESE places might harbor all
manner of micro-organic fugitives from the fumigator. However, most places simply do not require a medical grade clean.
Public transport infrastructure, from buses and trains, to depots and stations might benefit from such a clean, as would the offices of public
services. I happen to know that Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs building near me, is crawling with fleas at the moment, which are living in the
carpets and on the staff who work there, particularly those on the third floor for some reason. High traffic areas could all do with a clean of
But there again, the human race needs to learn to adapt to new microbiological circumstances at some point, otherwise it will be wiped out by tiny
little organisms, which would be the whimper to end all whimpers if you ask me. I prefer a bang (and who doesn't right?
