Are You Doing All You Can To Combat Superbugs?

It’s an unfortunate fact that in recent years, superbugs have become a concern and a threat to all of us. They are things we need to be aware of and pay attention to so that we can do the best we can to prevent them from spreading and doing more damage.

The latest superbug that is relevant to our area is C. auris, which the CDC just added to their list of “urgent threats”. This fungus has been quietly spreading across the world, but was most recently found in New York, New Jersey and Illinois, as well as solitary cases in other states. Nearly 600 cases have been confirmed across the US. This fungus preys on those with weakened immune systems, and in the last five years has taken a hold in a neonatal unit in Venezuela, a hospital in Spain, a British medical center, and has also shown up in India, Pakistan and South Africa. It is estimated that almost half of those infected die within 90 days.

Unfortunately, as things like fungus and bacterias become immune to medications, the focus needs to shift to facility cleanliness, personal hygiene, infection control and a cross-contamination efforts. It becomes imperative for organizations to alter the way that they clean so that nothing is able to remain there and multiply. Some fungus and bacteria can live on surfaces for weeks if the area is not properly cleaned and sanitized.

How does one go about sanitizing and ridding their facility of a potential superbug? The answer is that it requires specific products and processes. Even cleaning professional know that eradicating superbugs is no easy task. Cleaning and sanitizing methods that can spray and disinfect on both hard or soft surfaces, and reach into even the tightest spots will go a long way in assuring that bacteria and fungus cannot survive and wreak more havoc. Prevention and awareness are the best tools to use to help keep things like superbugs from spreading. If you have specific concerns, be sure to speak to your corporate cleaning partner about the ways that are available to keep your facility as clean and protected as possible.

How to Stay Healthy At Work

No one likes to be sick. We do our best to try to remain healthy and hope that our efforts are successful. Yet how do we know what things really make a difference in keeping ourselves well, and keeping our work surroundings sanitized and germ-free?

There are a variety of actions we can take in order to reduce employee sick time and help those that are still a little under the weather but come to work anyway from infecting others. You’ll want to be sure to keep things clean and as germ-free as possible. Disinfect things yourself if need be, but also be sure to talk to your cleaning crew and let them know that there’s a bug going around the office, or that more people than normal have fallen ill. This way steps can be taken to cleanse things a little more thoroughly, or more often. Remember that any equipment that touches employees’ hands is more likely to then carry germs. Disinfecting surfaces like telephones, doorknobs, kitchen handles, keyboards, and machine knobs or buttons is an especially good way to help combat infection.

There’s no perfect way to rid your building of germs. After all, it is estimated that a sneeze can contaminate surfaces up to 26 feet away. In addition, employees, customers, and visitors oftentimes come in when they’re sick, or fail to wash their hands as often as they should. A good plan is to remain vigilant about keeping all surfaces clean and disinfected, and to step things up should you experience an uptick in illness. Your cleaning company can assist with specific plans of action should your situation warrant them, as keeping things in your building safe, clean and germ-free is their goal.
