According to the John Hopkins Center for Health Security, sick building syndrome costs the U.S. economy an estimated $76 billion in performance losses. Sick building syndrome describes situations where building occupants experience negative health-related symptoms that are typically relieved after leaving the building. Commercial disinfectants can help alleviate sick building syndrome and prevent many diseases, viruses, or bacteria from spreading. The right commercial disinfectant provides safe, effective protection from these pathogens. Commercial use of BactroKill is one way to keep buildings clean and reduce the risk of sick building syndrome.
What Makes a Good Commercial Disinfectant?
An effective commercial disinfectant will be capable of killing 99.9% of bacteria and viruses on surfaces. This is considered hospital-grade commercial disinfectant, so it’s suitable for sanitizing a building’s counters, floors, and other surfaces. BactroKill meets these requirements and has also been EPA registered at the EPA’s lowest grade toxicity level, meaning it leaves no toxic fumes or odors. When looking for a commercial disinfectant, check the EPA registration and whether it could be harmful to workers and visitors.
Are Commercial Disinfectants Safe?
Worker safety with commercial disinfectants can be a concern with some products. The effects of toxic commercial disinfectants can be severe, ranging from eye irritation to severe skin burns and rashes. While some commercial disinfectants may be safe on their own, some cannot be mixed with other cleaning products. Improperly mixing cleaning products can result in bodily harm or poisonous gasses.
Commercial disinfectants should be prepared carefully. Certain products such as bleach can harm wood surfaces by discoloration or staining. Others can’t be used on nonporous surfaces. In order to make sure the product is used correctly on the surface it is meant to sanitize, always check the label.
