During a time where the concerns for the next major outbreak or contamination are tremendous, infection control cannot be overlooked. High-touch areas such as toilet seats can harbor potentially dangerous skin bacteria such as Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA), E. coli and streptococcus. If a person becomes infected with a skin bacteria, depending on the type and severity, symptoms can range from pimples to blisters to hospitalization. According to a report from Livestrong.com, the fear of contamination from using dirty toilets affects at least 7% of the population of the United States and Canada.
256 Century Q, 64 Millennium Q, Microcide TB and Century Q wipes are effective against MRSA, E. coli and streptococcus. To make disinfecting effective, the cleaning professional must understand how to properly use the disinfectant; always read the manufacturer’s instructions regarding contact time when using disinfectants. Cleaning the surface before disinfecting can also help the disinfectant’s efficacy.
Using different cleaning tools on different surfaces can also be beneficial because it can help reduce cross-contamination. To read more about restroom cleaning tools, check out the Restroom Cleaning Tools: Must-Have Tools blog.
