Wall Sanitizing Protocols to Adopt for Your Institution
It may sound surprising to some, but walls are one of the most germ infected surfaces in an entire building. These surfaces are rarely cleaned, constantly touched, and sometimes have crevices that are perfect for bacteria. Without effective sanitization protocols, walls can quickly become a hazard for everyone in the building.
To protect homes and businesses from bacteria, follow these wall sanitizing protocols and help us reduce the transmission of germs.
Have a Sanitization Schedule
Keeping walls clean and sanitized is an ongoing process. The most effective way to do so is with scheduled cleaning. We recommend sanitizing and cleaning walls at least once a month. High contact areas should be cleaned more often.
Use the Right Products
Using the right products for the job is crucial. Always use a PH-neutral cleaner, or an EPA-registered hospital disinfectant to clean walls. These products are designed to disinfect and sanitize a variety of surfaces.
Test for Bacteria After Sanitizing an Area
Testing for bacteria after sanitizing will give you proof that your wall cleaning protocol is working or not. We recommend swabbing high contact areas after cleaning them to see if the bacteria has gone down significantly.
Invest in Antimicrobial Walls
Not all walls are designed equally. WallPro designs PVC walls that have a special anti-microbial coating that effectively prevents the growth of germs. Our walls are resistant to bacteria for over 20 years, incredibly durable, and easy to clean.
Antimicrobial walls are rising in popularity, and more industries are incorporating them into their workspace. Our antimicrobial walls in particular have been very popular for Canadian businesses. All our products are professionally installed on-site and according to your specifications. To learn more about our products or sanitizing walls, contact us.
