The Problem: Germs live in your building but they don’t pay rent.
Germs, such as bacteria and mould, like to settle down and start a family in the same conditions as your residents – warm, cozy and not too dry.
Germs can last 24-48 hours on surfaces, during which time things like bacteria reproduce exponentially. One single cell can become more than 8 million cells in less than 24 hours.
How do they get into your building?
- Residents and visitors bring germs home from day-to-day activities – school, work, sports etc.
- Pets traipse dirt and litter, which can contain high germ counts, around the building
- Janitorial staff unknowingly spread them surface-to-surface on cloths etc.
There are a million ways that germs can come into your buildings. Although many microbes are a necessary part of life, the few that are bad are really bad and can cause sickness, disease and in some cases, death.
