    There are many reasons why it is important to learn and know about the proper way to clean bloodborne pathogens. To begin, knowing the proper way to clean bloodborne pathogens can significantly decrease the likely hood of an employee or one's self from being infected by any diseases that can be prevalent in bloodborne pathogens. The knowledge of what types of diseases can be lingering within body fluids and blood can help employees be better prepared when arriving at a cleaning site and be cautious of the danger they are exposed to during their daily work routines. Following these protocols can also help reduces the chance of exposure and increase safety within a job site.

    Understanding what type of exposure an employee is being presented with during daily routine jobs is important to help prevent the spread of diseases such as HIV, AIDs, and HBV. With these diseases lurking among body fluids and blood on a work site, it is important to inform employees about their risk of being exposed to such diseases and to prevent them from being spread beyond the workplace. Along with knowing what diseases are at risk on a job, it is also important to spread the knowledge of what these diseases can do to one's self if they are exposed. This is important so that employees know why products and procedures are in place. Also, knowing these procedures can help encourage employees to utilize these precautions and prevent these diseases from infecting anyone further.

    With this risk of exposure to bloodborne pathogens in the workplace, it is important that employees know how to properly handle and dispose of all fluids they come in contact with. Knowing the proper disposal locations for each type of equipment or waste will help reduce the exposure and help keep the crew in proper order for themselves and for possible other employees coming into contact with the waste for disposal. Additionally, beyond disposal, it is also important to understand that cleaning equipment used on the job site with the proper Betco disinfectant can help eliminate exposure beyond the work site.

    It is very important to clean all facilities; residential and commercial the same way as healthcare facilities.  In actuality some of the same people are going and coming in residential area and commercial facilities as well as healthcare facilities.   Meaning the same people are spreading the same germs and viruses as people in healthcare facilities.

     Whether a person knows it or not they are spreading germs to other people.  Therefore, using the same training and cleaning techniques are mandatory when it comes to cleaning either facility.  IJCSA have plenty of training for all types of facilities, just look at the link provided:

    You can implement medical cleaning practices into other residential and commercial cleaning situations by using medical grade products; therefore you can be certain all facilities are getting the same type of cleaning and disinfectant.

    Protecting the world population and world from harmful chemicals is very important to me as a cleaner because I have the platform to change the way certain techniques are done. Sometimes when I clean with strong products, I have to air out the house to get rid of the strong odors that chemicals produce.

    Sea quality can be improved with the little things we do like avoiding plastics, disposing of things that can harm the environment properly, not flushing chemicals down the drain and so much more. If we took a closer look into a simple microfiber cloth being disposed into a landfill and its affects, just that one action would open your mind about prevention.

    Every person should only perform Natural Green Cleaning because it has the same cleaning effects that name brand store products have, just without the harsh chemicals. Meaning you can get the same effective rate as a chemical with a natural cleaner, the only difference is time and how long you may need to let sit and disinfect.

    Natural Green Cleaning can improve your home by making it safer, purer air quality, it can protect your health, help the environment, help you save money, make cleaning easier, know knowledge about products, and use the knowledge you learned and create your own products. Sometimes these cleaning store products are just a name and don't have the same effect as 2 natural chemicals mixing and becoming an acid base reaction for cleaning. Trust me Baking soda, and Vinegar will clean everything, vinegar will also clean your window, baking soda will clean your toilets, and sinks brand new and salt and vinegar will clean any carpet stains, and your home will still be ecofriendly. GO GREEN!

    A green product is a sustainable product designed to minimize its environmental impacts during its whole life-cycle and even after it’s of no use.

    Green products are usually identified by having two basic goals – reducing waste and maximizing resource efficiency. They are manufactured using toxic-free ingredients and environmentally-friendly procedures and are certified by recognized organizations like Energy star, Forest Stewardship Council, etc.

    We currently do help with some mold cleanup in our business. We have a client who has us clean multiple evictions/move-outs on a weekly basis and a lot of time we will see some mold build up in the bathrooms on the grout. I do find it interesting how it does have some build up because the bathrooms have vents, and they all run on an hvac unit. The people who live in these homes are not really that fortunate as others though, so I do think that they do not clean these apartments while they are living in them at all. We currently are using bleach and a razor to clean it up.

    Hospitals and Doctor's offices, where we go to get better, not get a newly acquired infection.  Healthcare facilities can be a hot bed of bacteria and viruses if not properly maintained.  The safety if not only patients, but doctors, staff and visitors may be at risk if safety protocols for cleaning are not followed.

    While flu viruses can live on non porous surfaces up to 48 hours and on porous surfaces up to 12 hours; that leaves a large window of time if left unattended for a variety of people to come into contact and become infected. The simple act of  a patient touching a light switch, followed by a doctor touching it could potentially infect the doctor who would then pass that on to another patient and so on.  

    Additionally, immunocompromised patient's health relies on a very clean environment to make sure no more viruses or infections are introduced into their surroundings.  Improper handling of linens could potentially stir up pathogens that prove infectious.  As well as bloodborne pathogens if improperly handled and cleaned could prove to be infectious to anyone that may come into contact and ultimately could potentially be deadly.  Using a knowledgable company is a must to maintain safety.  Search the for your next certified Medical Cleaning Company at:
