What You Need to Know About Microbial Control & Sanitization

With the current pandemic, hygiene is an increasing worldwide concern. COVID-19 has caused economic downturns, a high unemployment rate, and over 1 million lives lost. We’ve all made changes in our daily lives to help curb the spread of the disease by wearing face masks and using hand sanitizers. Businesses have also adapted by regularly sanitizing their premises and making temperature checks compulsory. Today’s blog is to help organizations understand the importance of having a solid microbial control & sanitization plan, as well as how to find the right service. 

Understanding the concepts

Cleaning is the removal of visible soil or dirt from objects and surfaces, usually with the use of water and detergents. 

Sanitization reduces the microbial population on inanimate objects to a safe public health level. 

Disinfection kills or inactivates non-sporous pathogenic microorganisms on surfaces and objects. 

Sterilization is a process that destroys or eliminates all forms of microbial life, typically done in healthcare settings (i.e. for surgeries).

Benefits of microbial control & sanitization

Prevents disease transmission

It is proven that the majority of infections occur through hand transmission. As bacteria and viruses can live on a surface from mere hours to days, we’ve most likely been in contact with contaminated surfaces, then touch other non-contaminated surfaces and/or people. With contaminants living undisturbed on our work surfaces, it poses a risk for widespread diseases like H1N1 and COVID-19. 

Higher employee satisfaction

A study shows that there is a strong correlation between the perceived cleanliness level in a workplace to the employees’ satisfaction levels. When employees know they are in a clean and healthy environment, it provides them peace of mind and reduces distractions.

Increase productivity

When proper hygiene is maintained at the workplace, the probability of an employee becoming sick is low which will then lead to a lesser need for sick days. Historically, sick days have resulted in lower productivity and loss of profits. This study states that in the United States alone, medical-related absenteeism cost employers over $260 billion yearly while the total economic cost of the common cold is estimated at $40 billion each year. This is a heavy financial burden for businesses, and it can be remedied through the implementation of a proper microbial control plan.
