Terminals and Stations, Where Disease Travels Free
When you walk into a train station, bus or airline terminal or any other transport hub, it’s not too hard to figure our where the hi frequency touch points are that have voluminous amounts of infectious microbes. Just look at where people put their hands…
- Door handles
- Push bars
- Stair railings
- Escalator railings
- Ticket counters
- Food counters
- Tables and chairs
- Water fountains and faucets
- Vending machines
- Bathroom facilities
Every person that comes into contact with any surface in a terminal, station or even your office, leaves thousands of microbes behind. Some are of no concern and others can be very dangerous. Even if those microbes have had a chance to dry, many can survive on surfaces for weeks if not months with the right climate conditions. The recent outbreak of Enterovirus D68 is a perfect example of how infectious microbes travel as easily as people. Sterile Space Infection Defense Provides a service that easily combats the issue of cross contamination infection.
An example of how this service works is as follows:
- A hand with various germs is indicated with color ovals.
- That hand touches a surface that has been treated with our disinfectant and long-term antimicrobial.
- As the microbes come in contact with the treated surface, they are drawn to the surface and impaled on the Si-Quat chemical swords that rupture the cell membrane and eradicate the germs.
