HEALTHIER SCHOOLS, STUDENTS AND STAFF

Due to close, constant contact, daycares, schools and universities can often be among the most prolific breeding grounds for harmful pathogens such as:

 

  • Walking with GermsNorovirus
  • Rhinovirus
  • H1N1 (“swine flu”)
  • MRSA (resistant staph)
  • Pertusis (“whooping cough”)
  • Hepatitis B
  • Meningitis
  • Chicken Pox
  • Strep Throat

Daycare DisinfectionDaycare concerns are unique due to the children’s weaker immune systems. Once an infection appears, transmission can be extremely rapid. Studies have shown that when a virus is introduced on a toy in a room of toddlers in the morning, it can be cultured from 80 percent of the children by the end of the day and 50 percent of the parents by the next morning. Our school systems also experience the negative effects of infection transmission. The results are now being translated into lost school days for students and staff and increased cost to our schools. According to the ISSA, improper cleaning and disinfection efforts contribute to annual losses:

  • 22 million school days are lost to the common cold
  • 38 million school days are lost due to influenza
  • Elementary students contract 8 to 10 cold or flu cases
  • Teacher absence costs schools more than $25 billion

Academic performance also declines due to improper cleaning protocols and indoor air quality issues. Studies show that these issues can cause performance losses as much as 8% in areas such as:

  • School DisinfectionTyping Skills
  • Arithmetic
  • Memory
  • Creative Thinking Skills

Germs are transmitted by touching contaminated surfaces. Flu viruses can live on surfaces for 48 hours and some bacteria can live on surfaces for months. Common touch points must be properly disinfected to help prevent the spread of infection. These touch points and problem areas include:

  • Water Fountains
  • Cafeteria Trays and Plates
  • Bathroom Fixtures
  • Electronic Components
  • Door Knobs
  • Classrooms
  • Offices
  • Gyms and Auditoriums
  • Sports Locker Rooms
  • School Buses

AIR AND SURFACE DISINFECTION PROTOCOLS PROVIDE VALUABLE BENEFITS

Bio Protection Systems offers new generation Whole Space Disinfection and Anti-Microbial Surface Protection Protocols that safely destroys a broad spectrum of:

  • Mold Growth PreventionMold
  • Allergens
  • Bacteria
  • Viruses
  • Fungi

We also perform ATP Testing, Mold Testing and Indoor Air Quality Test to provide quantitative measurements of indoor contaminant levels. Give your school a way to measure disinfection efforts, protect the health of students and staff, and improve academic performance.
