Infection Control Solutions
Infection control can be a difficult since most cleaners kill bacteria and organisms only during the cleaning process. As soon as the cleaning process is completed, bacteria, viruses and other organisms start repopulating. EPA has been testing advanced cleaners that work in an improved method beyond just chemical destruction and methods that allow superbugs to develop. Learn how bacteriostatics and bactericidals function and resources approved by the EPA that are available to you and your clients for protection for both hard and soft surfaces that protects for up to 90 days against mold, mildew, and fungi; along with lab results showing the inactivation of 100+ pathogens including, but not limited to, enveloped cell structures. (SarsCoV2 has an enveloped cell structure). These new resources are viable for home health, skilled nursing facilities, visiting clinicians vehicles and offices.
