Infection control in educational facilities

Sparta, North Carolina- With the beginning of the school year just around the corner, it is important to make sure your cleaning program includes effective preventative measures to control the spread of infection. It was not so long ago when we were faced with daily references in the media regarding the possible escalation of the swine flu (H1N1 Virus). Amano Pioneer Eclipse has a very effective product to deter the spread of the even the toughest virus.

Aurora HB is an effective bactericide, fungicide and virucide suitable for all washable surfaces in public environments. When diluted in water at the rate of 2 ounces per gallon, it exhibits effective disinfectant activity against organisms like E-coli, Salmonella and Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) while meeting all requirements for hospital use.

According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, virus typically spread from person to person by exposure to coughing, sneezing or by touching a hard surface with the virus on it and then subsequently touching your eyes, mouth or nose before washing your hands.

While nothing has been identified as being effective in precluding the infection after transmission of a virus has occurred, the CDC endorses a preemptive cleaning protocol as being an effective at circumventing the initial transmission of a virus by cleaning surfaces and kill virus on contact.
