Controlling Infection in Commercial Buildings
- Feb 24, 2020
With the recent concerns growing about infectious viruses such as Influenza, Flu and Coronavirus (COVID-19), many executives, facilities directors and property managers are seeking solutions for how to best protect their employees and customers.
How to Avoid Infections?
February has consistently ranked among the highest in terms of flu activity. While the Center for Disease Control (CDC) advocates vaccination as the number one method for protecting against infections, other methods include:
- Washing your hands frequently.
- Staying home when you are sick.
- Covering your nose and mouth when sneezing or coughing.
These simple tips can assist in preventing infection in typical commercial office spaces or other environments. However, many professionals have asked what further methods are available to them during flu season and beyond.
Solutions for Industry Professionals
One of the most well regarded disinfection methods in the industry is Steramist. Steramist is a disinfection system can be used on all surfaces (including electronics). It deploys as a fine fog which can reach wide or more targeted areas. Within minutes, it sanitizes and deodorizes without the need for interruption of daily routines.
Not just a Healthcare Industry Option
While Steramist is a trusted option in facilities sensitive to infection such as hospitals, long-term care facilities and nursing homes, its application extends far beyond. Schools and day care centers also benefit from the technology as do first responders. The vehicles and equipment used in emergency services are susceptible to a wide range of contaminants. A routine treatment of Steramist not only sanitizes these items but removes odor. This makes it an excellent option for property managers and those in the hospitality industry who may be dealing with cigarette smoke or other unpleasant odors.
The 5-Second application time and 7-minute contact time makes the application quick and easy enough to build into already established disinfection protocols.
An Organic Option
Steramist is registered with the EPA and the US Food and Drug Administration. The technology uses Ionized Hydrogen Peroxide which contains Reactive Oxygen Species. These molecules attack disease causing pathogens. Because the only ingredient is Hydrogen Peroxide, Steramist is able to be deployed in areas and on surfaces where other disinfectants such as bleach cannot.
