Information for Childcare Center Parents
Dear Parents of Childcare Center Children,
Today it is more important than ever before to make sure the childcare centers or services that you use for your children not only look and smell clean, but are truly biologically clean.
Sterile Space Infection Defense services numerous childcare centers for the disinfection of high-frequency touch-points followed by the application of a long-term antimicrobial to help inhibit the survival, growth and surface re-colonization of infectious microbes.
Every time we touch a surface or object, we leave behind microbes from our hand. We also take with us, microbes that the previous person left behind. If the microbes we picked-up are bacteria, mold, fungus or algae, we can infect ourselves very easily. How could that be? Did you know that the average person touches their face (eyes, nose and mouth) more than 2,200 times in an eight hour day. Children touch their faces even more during a day at childcare. Once those microbes come into contact with a mucus membrane like the eyes, nose or mouth, you are infected.
For over 100 years, we have been taught to clean with a good detergent cleaner and then use a disinfectant if needed. Today that is not nearly enough. There needs to be something that can stem the tide of flourishing infectious microbes on the items we and our children handle every day. Sterile Space Infection Defense has the answer. It’s called the Healthy Child Zone™ Program.
Decades ago, if your child caught a sniffle, cough or cold, it was no big deal. Let it run its course and all would be fine. Today, nothing could be further from the truth. In the last thirty years, we have seen the arrival of new infectious organisms and very complex adaptive organisms or super bugs. This has happened because of the severe over use of antibiotics and other germ fighting drugs. Today we have MRSA, VRE, CRE, C.Diff and now E.Coli-MCR-1, which appears to be unaffected by our best antibiotics of Last Resort. Eventually all these organisms find their way into the general population, everywhere we go and childcare centers.
What would fewer germs in your child’s environment mean to YOU?
