With flu season at it’s peak throughout the country, facility maintenance personnel are working harder than ever to keep germs at bay. Pesky flu germs can survive on surfaces for up to 48 hours, so it is necessary to sanitize as many communal surfaces as possible, and do it more often. This puts extra demands on janitorial employees who are already working hard to meet their workplaces’ cleaning and sanitation standards.
SO HOW CAN YOU EFFECTIVELY SANITIZE LARGE SURFACE AREAS AGAINST THE FLU AND OTHER GERMS?
Misting with a chemical sprayer is an effective way to disperse sanitizing chemicals. Requiring minimal effort, misting quickly delivers disinfectant to large surface areas as well as to hard-to-reach corners and crevices, all-the-while providing better coverage than using the traditional spray/wipe method of cleaning. This helps reduce flu viruses, bacteria and mold on surfaces that can otherwise be difficult to reach.
Using a chemical sprayer to sanitize surfaces helps workers easily tackle high touch point areas such as:
- Stair rails
- Door handles
- Water fountains
- Table & chairs
- Locker rooms
- And other common areas
This makes chemical sprayers an ideal choice for medical facilities, schools, nursing homes, office buildings, manufacturing plants, movie theaters, restaurants, and child care facilities.
