Verona, New Jersey (PRWEB) October 9, 2017
Sterile Space Infection Defense, an infection prevention, control and eradication company, released a new report on the need for better infection prevention in child care centers, activity centers, private and public schools in New Jersey. The newly released report – Is Your Child Care Center Making Kids Sick? – is now available as a digital download on Sterile Space’s website: www.sterilespace.com.
According to the report, a significant problem facing child care centers is cross contamination infection – when a child touches a contaminated surface and then touches their eyes, nose, mouth or an open wound. Over 75% of kids catch infections via cross contamination infection.
Every time a child comes into contact with items like chairs, light switches, and especially toys, they leave behind tiny microbes while taking someone else’s microbes with them. To prevent contamination infection, Sterile Space’s report recommends treating all of these high frequency touch points with a long-term antimicrobial coating that can kill the majority of pathogens, including MRSA, and many other adaptive organisms or “super-bugs.”
“As clean as any child care facility may look or smell, it is rare that it is biologically clean. Microscopic organisms are cumulative on surfaces just like dust. Very few Directors/Owners actually have the time to inspect regularly, let alone daily for the cleanliness of their centers,” commented Irwin Stromeyer, owner of Sterile Space. “To make your child care facility biologically safer, you need to use a good detergent cleaner, proper cleaning and decontamination techniques, a quality disinfectant and a long-term antimicrobial applied to every surface.”
Sterile Space Infection Defense, headquartered in Verona, NJ, is dedicated to reducing the accumulation of infectious organisms on the surfaces, furniture, fixtures, equipment and items in your child care or daycare facility, thereby reducing the opportunity for cross contamination infection. Sterile Space utilizes a fully EPA Registered antimicrobial formulation that is proven to stop the growth of numerous infectious organisms on treated surfaces for at least twelve months.
