CM/Spotlight: Infection control — The evolution of commercial cleaning
The February issue of CM/Cleaning & Maintenance Management® magazine is now available online, featuring the cover story CM/Spotlight: Infection control — The evolution of commercial cleaning by Peter J. Sheldon, Sr.
Sheldon states that the commercial cleaning industry is feeling the pressure to contribute to the health and safety of our community and reduce the spread of infections in our facilities.
He notes that the first step to any effective facility cleaning program must be the use of proper disinfectant chemistry — a hospital-grade disinfectant, for example — to kill bacteria and viruses that lurk in the unseen world.
Sheldon adds that as a facility manager, you have a responsibility to your staff and the community at large to ensure your facility employs the proper procedures to keep infection and cross contamination at bay.
