From hands to surfaces and back again, germs can travel throughout a facility as people interact throughout the day. With the right knowledge, strategy, and product solutions, you can eliminate germs on surfaces and help break the cycle of germ transmission in your facility.
Using a broad-spectrum formulation to reduce germs on surfaces is essential, but without the right balance of effectiveness and mildness, you can compromise everything from the appearance of furniture to the overall guest experience.
High-touch areas like door handles, elevator buttons, and countertops are obvious places to start, but it’s more important than ever to ensure you’re thoroughly disinfecting all the surfaces where germs can hide.
Washing and sanitizing hands is the first line of defense against germs that can make you sick. But knowing where germs like to hang out is also important. When guests, customers, and employees are aware of which objects can hold the most germs, they’ll have a better understanding of when they need to wash their hands.
From maintenance and janitorial staff to your employees, teamwork is a great way to help keep your facility cleaner and eliminate germs. But be aware that many surface cleaning products require gloves or other PPE and need to be rinsed off of surfaces. PURELL® surface sanitizers and disinfectants don’t require gloves or rinsing and are safe for food-contact surfaces, so you can feel good about your employees using these products throughout your facility.
While it’s true that every facility is different, the one thing they all have in common is germy surfaces. From restaurant counters to office breakrooms, high-touch surfaces are great places for germs to gather. Knowing where germs like to hang out and building an effective surface disinfecting program can help you maintain a clean, high-quality facility.
