The best way to deal with disease is not to treat it but to prevent it, and some strategies are rather simple. For example, experts agree that good personal hygiene is vital to preventing the spread of disease. Another critical component is hygienic cleaning of environmental surfaces, especially those that come into direct contact with skin. In fact, the more we understand about disease and how it is transferred, the more clear the importance of cleaning becomes. That's why so many environmental scientists consider it the first line of defense against infectious disease.
However, not all cleaning tools and methods are alike and not all achieve healthy results. Traditional mops and cleaning towels are notorious for accumulating and spreading soils and contaminants instead of removing them. In fact, a growing number of environmental scientists maintain that it's actually better to not clean than to clean using ineffective methods.
Kaivac's Strategy: Remove it and Prove it
Kaivac believes that cleaning is the removal of all unwanted soils and substances, including the invisible realm of microbes, if it is to protect health. Regardless of whether cleaning a restroom, kitchen, classroom, or surgery suite the goal must be to remove the maximum amount of contaminants, both seen and unseen. Then, validate it through rapid hygiene measurement technology.
