As we enter 2023, cleaning and disinfecting continue to be a priority for facilities of all types. A properly cleaned building will help protect inhabitants against infectious diseases. Ineffective cleaning will allow germs to spread, leading to sick building inhabitants and higher absenteeism.

How can you ensure you and your cleaning staff are protecting facility inhabitants from infectious diseases? Find out by registering for this one-hour, fast-paced webinar where you’ll learn cleaning and disinfection best practices from infection control specialists.

You will learn:

  • Tips to help cleaning staff focus on high-touch surfaces
  • Cleaning plans that include the proper equipment for different types of areas (One size does not fit all situations.)
  • Methods to measure cleaning effectiveness (such as ATP meters and post-inspection checks)
  • Advice on choosing the right product for the task based on factors such as the type of facility, type of surface, and type of mess as well as the desired outcome
  • An explanation on the differences between cleaning, disinfecting, and sanitizing
  • Instructions on how to identify infectious reservoirs
  • Cleaning best practices, such as reading and following instructions, adhering to proper dwell times, pre-cleaning if necessary, and training staff on proper product use
  • And much more!

Webinar attendees can engage with panelists throughout the presentation and during a dedicated Q&A session. Come prepared with your questions.
