ENHANCED BUILDING HYGIENE
The realization of the threat to building occupants from disease-causing germs has caused all of us to rethink the meaning of the word “clean.” Cleaning now includes removing or deactivating invisible microbial contaminants.

We now need the next level beyond looking clean, Enhanced Building Hygiene.

THE RIGHT EQUIPMENT, CHEMICAL AND PROCEDURE, FLOOR DISINFECTION CAN HELP REDUCE THE TRANSMISSION OF CORONAVIRUS
In a 2017 study published in the American Journal of Infection Control, researchers concluded, “that floors in patient rooms were frequently contaminated with health care associated pathogens and demonstrated the potential for indirect transfer of pathogens to hands from fomites placed on the floor.”
Moreover, “In a survey of 5 hospitals, [they] found that floors in patient rooms were frequently contaminated with health-care associated pathogens and it was not uncommon for high-touch objects… to be in direct contact with the floor.”
In light of the current COVID-19 outbreak, we have developed this guide to help people use their automatic scrubbers and disinfectants in an efficient and effective manner.
