Sometimes the biggest threat is what they don’t see.

Disinfect to protect your guests.

Your heroic efforts and proper disinfection using 3M products can stop the spread of illness, including cold and flu viruses.

  • 3M facility cleaning products being used effectively
    Structure your routine.
    • Clean away dust, dirt and debris, which can remove, but will not kill, germs.
    • Disinfect, which won’t clean dirty surfaces but will kill at least 99.9999% of germs.
    • Sanitize to kill 99.99% of germs on surfaces and objects in “hot spots” like school cafeterias and other food-prep areas.
  • multiple 3M commercial cleaning chemical products
    Choose the right product.
    • It’s critical to select the most effective product to prevent the flu in your environment. To ensure the right selection, cleaning staff should:
    • Read the EPA label on each product to make sure it has been proven effective against the flu virus.
    • Consider factors like dwell time.
  • clean common area with shiny floors
    Identify and tackle hot spots.

    Flu season calls for extra effort — cleaning and disinfecting — in high-touch areas such as:

    • Cafeteria tables
    • Computer keyboards
    • Paper towel dispensers
    • Water fountains
    • Library tables
    • Classroom and teacher desks
    • Bathroom faucets

  • Facility managers are the first line of defense to contain germs that cause the flu.

  • There’s a new battleground in the fight against infection — the floor.

  • The buildup of dust and debris on surfaces is linked to the development of health-care-associated infections (HAIs).

  • Infection prevention happens at a microscopic level through the cleaning and disinfecting strategies that facility managers dictate. It can feel insurmountable – no facility is 100 percent free of germs, but there are several products and practices that inhibit the spread of germs and benefit the overall facility.
