Ever since the pandemic upsurge, people have become more concerned about the spread of infections, and cleanliness and hygiene are at the top of everyone’s priority. People look for facilities with regular cleaning and disinfection programs so that they can be assured about their health.
However, when it comes to high-touch surfaces, simple cleaning and disinfection don’t help. The need is to incorporate more effective surface protection programs that work on eliminating surface contamination and reducing the spread of infections. Why? Well, let’s get into the details in further sections.
Importance of Surface Protection Programs for Your Commercial Facility
Surfaces are highly prone to the spread of infections, especially high-touch surfaces like tabletops, desks, doorknobs, door handles, etc., due to people constantly coming in contact with them.
When a person coughs or sneezes, the viruses and bacteria transfer into the surroundings, and passing through the air currents they settle on the surfaces. When someone touches such an infected surface, it leads to infection spread.
The infection spread on surfaces can also be caused due to people touching the surfaces more often. When an infected person touches a surface, the germs and microbes pass on to those surfaces and get carried by other healthy people touching the same surface.
So, to contain the spread of infections from surfaces, it becomes important to protect those surfaces in ways that can eliminate the germs and microbes from the surfaces as soon as they come in contact. This is where surface protection programs become important.
A surface protection program spreads a protective layer on the surfaces that helps eliminate germs and bacteria on them while also preventing further contamination. Such a program is also more effective as it lasts longer and you don’t have to indulge in the constant use of cleaning solutions and disinfectants.
Let us discuss the benefits of surface protection in more detail to see how it helps contain the spread of infections on surfaces.
Benefits of A Surface Protection Program
A surface protection program comes with multiple benefits. Not only does it eliminate all the germs, bacteria, viruses, and other disease-causing pathogens from the surfaces but it also works on keeping the surfaces protected for longer periods.
Hereinbelow are some of the major benefits of a surface protection program-
Spreads a Protective Layer On The Surfaces
A surface protection program incorporates the use of antimicrobial solutions and disinfectants along with advanced disinfection techniques and technologies such as antimicrobial disinfection.
This ensures that the disinfectant solution strongly adheres to the surfaces and spreads a protective layer on them by activating a positive charge. This activated positive charge kills all the existing germs and microbes on the surfaces and also prevents future contamination.
Effectively Reduces Infection Spread On Surfaces
Since the surfaces get activated with a positive charge, they repel any negative charge. So, even if an infected person comes in contact with the surfaces, the disease-causing pathogens are not able to survive as the positive charge spread over the surface due to the surface protection program kills them. This helps in effectively reducing and eliminating infection spread on the surfaces.
Works For Longer Time Periods
Surface protection programs are effective for a period of up to three months. The protective layers adhere to the surfaces for longer time periods which helps control the excessive use of disinfectants on the surfaces and prevent their harmful effect.
Moreover, it’s more cost-effective as you don’t have to indulge in constant surface protection and disinfection. Once you’ve got a surface protectant covering the surfaces on your premises, you can do away with the rest of the cleaning needs with regular dusting and sweeping.
