The Problem: Germs don’t go to school to learn.
Germs, such as bacteria and mould, like to work in the same conditions as we do – 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 school?
- Parents, students and visitors bring germs into the school from day-to-day activities – school, work, play etc.
- Students transmit their germs via desks, toys, and other shared resources
- Janitorial staff unknowingly spread them surface-to-surface on cloths etc.
There are a million ways that germs can come into your school. 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.
The Solution: GERMGUARD
The GERMGUARD 3 Step (Clean – Disinfect – Protect) Program offers you the opportunity to treat high-touch surfaces with our world-class antimicrobial surface treatment.
Below are the top five areas that you can treat to reduce germ populations.
|Area||Things to treat|
|Computer Rooms||Keyboards; mice; printers; monitor buttons; etc.|
|Gym||Benches; change rooms; mats; equipment; etc.|
|Washrooms||Toilets; taps; soap and paper towel dispensers; etc.|
|Desks / Classroom||Desktops; computers; doorknobs; cabinets; pencil sharpeners; etc.|
|Cafeteria||Tables; chairs; counters; trays; vending machines|
We can consult with you to decide which high-touch surfaces you wish to have treated.
Once we have determined the areas for treatment, we will thoroughly clean, disinfect and treat all high-touch building surfaces, giving up to 6 months of protection on buildings hard and porous surfaces against unwanted microorganisms.
