ISSA Article - Effective Cleaning in Schools & Senior Living Facilities

The latest ISSA article from Dr Greg Whiteley highlights the importance of effective cleaning in school and senior living facilities. Dr Whiteley mentions: "The common feature in both schools and senior living facilities is the close proximity of people to each other. Also, there is the abundant frequency of commonly touched surfaces. So, if one person gets an infectious germ, then the closer proximity increases the likelihood of person to person spread, or person to surface to person spread."

The risk of infection via surfaces

A lot of our customers are concerned about the risk of transmission of new Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) via a contaminated surface. Many viruses cannot live for long outside a human or animal host, whereas other viruses can survive for prolonged periods on contaminated surfaces. Based on current information, this Coronavirus (2019-nCoV ) sits somewhere in the middle of the risk zone. It can survive on a contaminated surface, but probably not for long. Thorough surface cleaning and disinfecting will ensure that any potentially contaminated surface is left in a clean and hygienic condition.

Whiteley Corporation has conducted a huge number of disinfectant tests against a wide array of infectious viruses over the past twenty-five years. We continue this long history of disinfectant and cleaning research with on-going testing and collaborative research programs, including virucidal testing. This knowledge frames the important factors to note about Coronavirus with respect to disinfectants.
