Cleaning and Sterilizing Incubators

I am looking for some new ideas with regards to cleaning cell culture
incubators.  I have used rocal followed by a thorough wash with 70%
ethanol in the past, but the lab I am currently working in does not
use rocal.  Will a washing with a regular non-caustic cleaner followed
by a wash with 70% ethanol be good enough to rid the incubator of
fungal and bacterial contaminations?  Thanks!
