Bloodborne pathogens are a life or death matter. A simple accidental prick on the finger could mean a lifetime of hospital visits . That being said, it is very important for cleaning employees and staff to know and understand how to spot and disinfect these pathogens . The cleaning industry has multiple avenues , and it is imperative that we operate and clean effectively.

Bloodborne pathogens are present everywhere. When cleaning and sanitizing areas of high exposure, one must be vigilant and aware of such fluids. For example, if a cleaning employee is tasked with sanitizing and disinfecting an area where blood, saliva or other bodily fluids are present; they should be well versed on how to clean up the area while keeping themselves protected as well. Understanding what type of cleaning agent to use in various situations will insure that both the employee and public are safe. 

Having a thorough knowledge of bloodborne pathogens and how to properly clean exposed areas, remains pivotal when cleaning .
