BIOHAZARDS DISINFECTION CLEANING

What are “Superbugs”?

“Superbug” is a term used by the medical community to describe strains of pathogenic bacteria that are resistant to the majority of antibiotics commonly used today. Antibiotic-resistant bacteria that cause skin infections, urinary tract infections, pneumonia, kidney failure, even death are some of the dangers we now face.

 

The Mayo Clinic states: “Antibiotic resistance is a naturally occurring phenomenon that can be slowed, but not stopped. Over time, bacteria adapt to the drugs that are designed to kill them and mutate to ensure their survival. This makes previously standard treatments for bacterial infections less effective, and in some cases, ineffective.”

 

One of the many serious threats to our health and wellness today is the “Superbug” Clostridium Difficile or “C. Diff”.

What is C. Diff?

 

How common and how serious is a C. Diff infection?

*If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with C. Diff, the possibility for re-infection or transmitting the infection to others can be very high if their indoor environment is not properly treated.

 

 

C. Diff is a pathogenic bacterium that can cause symptoms ranging from diarrhea to life-threatening inflammation of the colon. Illnesses from this pathogen most commonly affects older adults in hospitals or in long-term care facilities and typically occurs after use of antibiotic medications. 

 

Patients receiving medical care can acquire serious infections called “Healthcare-Acquired Infections” (HAIs), such as C. Diff. However, studies show increasing rates of C. diff infection among people traditionally not considered an elevated risk, such as younger and healthier individuals without a history of antibiotic use or exposure to healthcare facilities.

 

 

 

How common and how serious is a C. Diff infection?

Each year in the United States, about a half million people get sick from C. Diff, with an estimated 30,000 deaths annually. In recent years, C. Diff infections have become more frequent, severe and difficult to treat.

 

 

Advantages of the Halo Disinfection System®

Disinfects surfaces that can’t be reached with regular cleaning

Studies indicate that during traditional “spray and wipe” cleaning, the majority of surfaces are overlooked—including >10% of high-touch surfaces.

The disinfectant droplets are drawn into every nook, crevice, and corner, assuring a homogenous distribution of disinfectant on all surfaces in the room.

Reduces cross-contamination associated with traditional “spray and wipe” cleaning methods

 

Pathogens can be transferred from one area to another when the same rag, wipe, or sponge is used to clean multiple surfaces.

No rinsing or wiping after treatment with our disinfectant solution saves time and reduces the risk of cross-contamination.

Odorless, colorless, and non-corrosive formula leaves no visible film or residue

Bleach mixtures emit noxious fumes that can be irritating and may linger after cleaning is complete.

The environmentally preferred formula breaks down into oxygen and water, leaving only a trace amount of silver behind to help prevent the regermination of pathogens.

We offer services for:

Schools and Universities

Surfaces touched by multiple students pose the greatest risk for infection.

Daycares

Children share toys, utensils, and play areas, increasing the risk of germs spread in daycare facilities.

Doctors’ Offices

Multiple patient visits each day can lead to the spread of infection.

Sports Facilities and Gyms

Restrooms, locker rooms, showers and fitness equipment are the most common areas for exposure.

Hospitals and Healthcare Facilities

98,000+ patients die each year from infections acquired after hospital admission.

Assisted Care Facilities

Caregivers interact daily with multiple patients with weakened immune systems.

Veterinarian Hospitals

Reception, exam rooms, and kennel areas are prime infection transfer locations due to the high volume of animal visits.

Business Offices

Common areas, restrooms and break rooms. 

Residences & Transportation

Private homes, hotels, apartments, townhouses, condos, mass transportation and vehicles.
