backpack vacuumingInfection Control is the number one goal when providing hospital environmental services in Medical Facilities. There are many ways that germs can spread such as airborne contamination. When most people think about infection control they think about wiping down counter tops, floors, and other flat surfaces, with some sort of disinfectant cleaner. But what happens when germs are in the air on dust particles floating around? Hospital Housekeeping Staff can’t wipe the air down like they do countertops. A good HVAC air filtration system will help eliminate contaminated dust particles from the air. But it is more important to find out why those dust particles are in the air to begin with, to try and minimize Infection Control through airborne contamination. Hospital Environmental Services can help reduce airborne contamination with the use of ProTeam Backpack Vacuums.

The pro team backpack vacuums has a unique 4 level filtration system that captures dust particles, dust mites, and bacteria without stirring particles in the air and therefore keeping the air  healthy. This makes the vacuum suitable for cleaning of carpets, floors, countertops and other surfaces. Now, one can clean more effectively without disturbing indoor air quality. The level of filtering consists of: A Micro Filter, a Cloth Filter, a Dome Filter, and and a Foam Exhaust Filter.

A systemized approach

A systemized cleaning program will help to maintain an organized cleaning service which can improve the quality outcomes of patients, employees, and the facility itself. In a medical facility where cleaning is more intense and done more frequently, one thing is certain that all elements of medical cleaning must involve new and green cleaning equipments. Employees must be equipped well enough to fight the good fight against bacteria, dust mites, and germs, which we cannot see through our naked eyes. New high performance products will save us time, labor, and money which are crucial for any business.
