How a Professional Sanitation Service Can Help You with the Pandemic
If you’re caring for vulnerable populations in either a long term care facility or nursing home, it’s best to hire a professional sanitation service to disinfect.
This will prevent both your patients and your staff from a potential viral infection caused by a deadly virus known as rotaviruses.
Many elderly residents that do not have the proper immune systems may contract this disease.
This is a particularly dangerous time for them since they may be more susceptible to developing this disease when ill.
Professional sanitation service
Professional sanitation services also disinfect the rooms that house these unfortunate individuals.
For example, people who have HIV or AIDS are placed in these rooms without the knowledge that they are contagious.
A professional sanitation service will go over the process with the patient.
They’ll explain the need for a thorough disinfection of the room, explaining the risks associated with not disinfecting the rooms correctly and how important it is for everyone involved to use effective sanitizing products and follow all the safety precautions necessary.
In many cases, these cleaning services will also include disinfection of the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) worn by staff members.
It’s important that every facility to take advantage of commercial space sanitizing products.
The types of bacteria often found in these spaces, such as those found in public bathrooms, can be very harmful to the general public if they are not sanitized properly.
These commercial sanitizing solutions will kill any potential bacterial growth, rendering them safe for use.
In addition to killing bacteria, disinfectants will sanitize surfaces that have been affected by bodily fluids, blood, or other secretions.
These sanitizing agents will also work on food processing equipment, metal work, and instruments.
They will generally cover the entire surface of these items, leaving them germ-free and looking as beautiful as they did on the day the items were first manufactured.
This is one reason why many facilities consider disinfectants to be the most important part of their sanitizing regimen.
While disinfecting surfaces may be the top priority of the sanitation service, they’re only one step in the process.
For infected areas, disinfection will also involve washing and disinfecting clothing, cutting the nails and removing any jewellery.
This may seem like a lot, but it is actually quite simple when done in the right order.
First, the contaminated area must be washed with disinfectant.
Then the clothing can be put into a dryer on its own.
Finally, the jewellery and other infected items should be removed from the dryer and placed on a special disinfectant-only clean clothes basket.
Cleanliness and sanitation are absolutely necessary for preventing passing of the deadly pandemic strain.
If you do not take basic sanitation precautions now, you could be paying the price for a long time to come.
In the interim, however, disinfection services can help protect employees, clients and the general public.
A pandemic has the power to kill tens of thousands of people, so being vigilant about cleanliness and safety should always be the first course of action.
Even if there is not a pandemic currently brewing, there is no guarantee that the next one will not.
Therefore, sanitizing is an absolute must today more than ever before.
