We all have our own idea of what “clean” is. In the past, if a facility looked and smelled clean, then it was thought to be clean. Even if a facility looks and smells clean, it is not clean until you have killed and removed germs.
Germs are everywhere, and you cannot see or smell them. While most germs are harmless, some can make people sick. Viruses cause illnesses such as cold and flu. Bacteria are found on almost every surface and can cause infections, diarrhea, and illness. Fungus and mold live in warm, moist areas such as showers, restrooms, kitchens, and near windows. They can cause skin infections and breathing problems.
To “disinfect” means to kill germs (a disinfectant). Different disinfectants kill different kinds of germs. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), a hospital-grade disinfectant kills three specific types of germs: Staph, Pseudomonas, and Salmonella. These 3 pathogens cover the broad scope of germ killing that is required in hospital and healthcare facilities.
Our mopping system ensures that mops are never dipped into dirty water. This significantly reduces cross-contamination.Also, microfiber mop pads pick up more dirt than traditional string mops and the mop design makes it easier to get in corners and hard to reach places.
