Infectious diseases, such as COVID-19 and influenza, can cause severe illness in employees and negatively impact the workplace. As people return to the workplace, it is critical to ensure that your business is clean and germ-free. To do so requires the right equipment—and that equipment can be found at Karcher Dealers in Ontario.
Steam cleaners from Karcher are especially effective against germs. To see how effective the equipment was, the company tested it in an independent laboratory. The result was that, when used properly, the steam cleaner removed 99.99% of viruses and common bacteria from hard surfaces.
Roy Turk industrial supplies carry a range of Karcher products, including supplies and equipment that can clean pressure washers. But for getting rid of germs, you don’t need a pressure washer. A steam cleaner is a more effective tool.
Home and Business Machines
The tests that Karcher conducted were done on both home and commercial machines. Both classes of machines resulted in comparable results. Using equipment from Karcher dealers in Ontario, you can have the peace of mind that both your home and business will be free from illness-causing viruses and bacteria.
How Disease Spreads
The latest information about COVID-19 confirms that the disease is transmitted by droplets. This means that it spreads through the air when droplets, through coughing and sneezing, are directly inhaled.
It can also be transmitted indirectly. One way this happens is when an infected person coughs into their hand then touches a surface. The virus is picked up by other people who touch that same surface. It is essential to clean commonly touched hard surfaces properly to slow the spread of infection.
Shared cleaning equipment should also be disinfected. That’s why it’s good to know that there are products out there, like what is available at Roy Turk industrial supplies, that can clean pressure washers.
Having a well-cleaned and disinfected workplace is essential when the coronavirus is active. A strict cleaning regimen, including killing viruses and bacteria through steam cleaning, will minimize the chance of infection. This is good for keeping employees safe and also good for business.
In places that are difficult to access but need to be cleaned, tools and supplies are available to make the job easier.
When disinfecting, it is important to be thorough to not leave any bacteria behind that can spread and cause infection.
