Professional Disinfection For the Most Vulnerable
December 11, 2020 by Kimberly Harrison
The global Covid-19 outbreak has changed the way we all think about pathogen spread and virus disinfection. As we reach the end of 2020, Covid has claimed the lives of more than 100,000 Long Term Care Residents and Staff. And this number continues to grow.
Recent surges in infection nationwide indicate that up to 40% of all coronavirus deaths are in Long Term Care facilities. The need for fast, efficient, and effective disinfection in these facilities is critical to controlling the spread. At Bio-One, we fulfill this need with the use of our EPA-N list chemicals and electrostatic sprayers.
Electrostatic technology works by charging and atomizing the disinfection solution allowing it to reach and uniformly coat surface, even those missed by manual cleaning. In a recent study at the Cleveland VA Medical Center, a group of doctors looked at pathogens in a 215 bed acute care facility. What they found were significant levels of pathogens on portable equipment, wheel chairs and in waiting rooms. Using approved disinfectants and an electrostatic sprayer, they noted significant reductions in pathogens on all surfaces.
The importance and role of disinfection in preventing the spread of Covid-19 is clear. Hiring a professional cleaning service allows Long Term Care facilities to focus on patient care. Choosing the right service to assist with cleaning protocols is key. Bio-One is the nation’s leading bio-hazard response company. We are proud to offer highly trained, licensed, and insured technicians to aide in the application and effectiveness of disinfection protocols at healthcare facilities.
