Disinfect Athletic Facilities with Clorox Total 360 System

Posted by Barry Greenberg on Tue, Oct 3, 2017 @ 14:10 PM

Athletic Facilities and the Clorox Total 360 System

People who visit athletic facilities should improve their health, not get sick.

Learn why the Clorox Total 360 System is a game-changer, in terms of healthcare - protecting athletic facilities.

Illness causing pathogens can live on surfaces throughout your facility and many surfaces are difficult to cover completely. Many irregular surfaces are also difficult to disinfect. Studies have shown that over 50% of athletic trainers have experienced cases of MRSA, that resulted in hospitalization.

The CDC (Center for Disease Control) reports that more Americans die from Staph or MRSA each year than from AIDs or HIV. Also according to the CDC, the top sports attributed to MRSA infections are wrestling, football, and rugby. MRSA, Staph, and other skin infections are rampant in high school and college sports due to the amount of skin to skin contact between athletes, as well as the exchange of bodily fluids. In a sport like wrestling, skin to skin contact is unavoidable and there is little way of knowing whether your competition has a skin infection or is carrying a bacteria or virus. Regardless, wrestlers leave a lot on the mat, including bodily fluids which can also transmit MRSA or Staph long after the match is over.

Some professional athletes that have contracted MRSA are listed:

Daniel Fells (New York Giants),Lawrence Tynes (Tampa Bay Buccaneers), Brandon Noble (Washington Redskins), Kellen Winslow, Peyton Manning, Drew Goodon, Mike Gansey, Sammy Sosa, Paul Pierce, Kenyon Martin, Alex Rios, Braylon Edwards and Grant Hill. Some of these high profile players had this career ending infection.

Maryn McKenna outlines many of these stories of the outbreak of MRSA in her excellent book "Superbug"..

Areas of greatest concern include: Hydrotherapy tubs, massage tables, contact with weight-training equipment surfaces, towels, used bandages.

 

Watch out for emerging HFMD

Hand foot and mouth disease is an infection with the coxsackievirus A16. The coxsackievirus belongs to a group of viruses called nonpolio enteroviruses. There have been recent cases of outbreaks of hand foot and mouth disease in Southern California high schools, as well as at the Cambridge campus of Harvard University in September 2017. In the case in October 2017 in Orange County, California, football games were canceled and the athletic departments were thoroughly disinfected.

Just last year Florida State University was hit with 22 cases of HFMD.

 

Why are we having such difficulty controlling pathogens in athletic facilities, classrooms and training centers?

 

In order to thoroughly provide a safe healthy environment, disinfecting practices must be in place. Not only are the correct products necessary but also the understanding of  the precise procedures to apply these disinfectants. Few people consult the efficacy pages that are available with disinfectant products. How can you know if you're using the exact product, as required for your application? Chemex offers this training!

As noted above, utilizing mop & bucket, sprayers, misters, etc. offer limited coverage of disinfecting capability. Your disinfectant must be able to have contact with the various surfaces for the correct amount of time, as listed on produt labels.

The Clorox Total 360 System with proven electrostatic technology is a game changer.

The revolutionary Clorox Total 360 System is an electrostatic sprayer paired with Clorox trusted solutions. It provides superior coverage through proven electrostatic technology and delivers Clorox disinfectants and sanitizers onto hard-to-reach surfaces. The Clorox Total 360 System helps keep your facility healthier while also saving you time, money and labor.

Hospital and School Surface Disinfectant: Control Bacteria and Disease

Posted by Barry Greenberg on Wed, Aug 10, 2016 @ 11:08 AM

Hospital and School Surface Disinfectant: Control Bacteria and DiseaseOur hands come across a wide variety of different surfaces each and every day.  Each time we touch a door handle, a countertop, a desk, or anything else, we leave something behind, and we also bring something with us.  This happens countless times a day.  But what exactly are we leaving for someone else to find?  And what did we unknowingly bring with us?  According to a study by ABC News, we come into contact with about 60,000 germs daily.  This number can grow even higher when you consider busy facilities like hospitals, schools, and industrial settings.  While only one to two percent of these germs are potentially dangerous, it is important to keep them under control, especially in highly trafficked, vulnerable areas, like the ones previously mentioned. 

Before we understand how to keep these surfaces disinfected and safe, we need to understand the different types of surfaces that will need to be treated.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention separates surfaces into two classifications:

Medical Equipment Surfaces

This classification includes knobs, handles, and other highly touched areas on medical equipment and fixtures.

Housekeeping Surfaces

This classification includes more common areas like walls, floors, table and countertops.  Housekeeping surfaces can also be further segmented in “low touch” and “high touch” surfaces

Low Touch Surfaces

These surfaces experience minimal hand contact.

High Touch Surfaces

These surfaces make frequent hand contact.

Now that we have the types of surfaces categorized, how do we keep them clean, safe, and free of dangerous bacteria?

SPEC4 Disinfectant Wipes

SPEC4 Disinfectant Wipes are a bleach-free, alcohol-free, non-staining, hospital-grade wipe.  SPEC4’s quat-based formula is an ideal cleaner and disinfectant for a wide range of high touch surfaces in nursing homes, schools, day cares, gyms, industrial kitchens, and a variety of other facilities.  These wipes disinfect hard, non-porous surfaces in four minutes, and sanitize in only 15 seconds.  The lemon-scented formula also eliminates mold and mildew.

Keeping your surfaces clean and disinfected protects everyone in your facility from potentially dangerous bacteria and diseases.  SPEC4 Disinfectant Wipes are an easy and highly effective way to fight disease and keep your surfaces safe.  SPEC4 is only one of the powerful and safe disinfectant products available from Chemex Industries.

Combat mold and algae growth in your condensate drain lines

Posted by Barry Greenberg on Mon, Jul 7, 2014 @ 15:07 PM

 

High heat, humidity & dampness can be a recipe for mold and related micro toxins, in many facilities. Southern California battles these elements, year round.  Indoor air quality suffers, as heat soars.

HVAC systems encounter mold growth on the inside of the building’s return air ducts. Additionally, the condensate drain lines become clogged with algae, slime & other encrusted matter.

Blocked condensate drain lines, can cause indoor air quality concerns, as well as causing algae, slime and mold to form. Water overflowing the pan causes slip and falls. Consider using a condensate drain line treatment, or a condensate drain pan treatment.

Using a Hospital Grade Disinfectant product (Phenomenal), a drain-line opener for the condensate lines and a condensate pan treatment, to be placed on the pan itself, is an effective 3-pronged approach to remedy.
