It’s back to school time!  What does that mean?  For parents and students, it means rising early, packing lunches, doing homework, and running around to practice and school events.  What does back to school mean for teachers, administrators and janitors?  It means making sure students and faculty are safe.  One safety concern is keeping the school germ free to prevent the spread of colds and viruses.  “Children in day care or in school can have as many as 8 to 12 colds a year, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics. And that’s just respiratory infections”. (http://www.health.com/health/gallery/0,,20725771,00.html)  There are many types of germs found on desktops, door knobs, bathroom sinks, and light switches among other places.  The best prevention is hand washing and keeping hands from noses, eyes and mouths.  Properly cleaning schools can help stop the spread of germs.  The CDC recommends both disinfecting and sanitizing when cleaning (http://www.cdc.gov/flu/school/cleaning.htm).  Disinfecting kills germs and sanitizing reduces the number of germs.  Image Cleaning works with Gary Landrum from SupplyLink SolutionsICS cleaning associates use Trinity Disinfectant.  Trinity kills many viruses including HIV-1, HIV-2, Hepatitis B virus (HBV), Hepatitis C virus (HCV), Herpes Simplex Type 1(causative agent of fever blisters), Herpes Simplex Type 2 (genital), Influenza A2/Hong Kong, Vaccinia, Rotavirus, Human Coronavirus, SARS associated Coronavirus, Avian Influenza A Virus, Canine Distemper Virus.
