Title: Should You Fear The Floor or Cleaning Environment


As a environmental services professional, residential cleaner or carpet and restoration cleaners you go about your normal day of cleaning or carpet cleaning in many areas.  The area and carpet looks great overall.  Have you ever asked yourself are the floors and carpet safe from an infection control standpoint?  Appearance can be deceiving.   Don't be fooled, the floors and carpet can harbor bacteria, contaminants and even major bugs such as Clostridium Difficile (C-Diff). How many times have you cleaned and disinfected the floors and carpeted areas and didn't properly wear personal protective equipment (PPE) because the floor and carpeted areas looked clean?  During this presentation we will discuss infection control and the superbugs that you may not know exist, how long they can live on surfaces, chemicals needed to clean during the process and what you can do to protect yourself and team during the cleaning process.


Type: Seminar Day (Monday)
