Environment and surfaces potentially contribute to cross contamination of microbes which can affect every one. Surface and environment disinfectants are used to prevent transmission of infectious pathogens present on the surface and in the environment. Disinfection of environment surfaces is a first line of defense against all pathogens, and especially those that are resistant to antibiotics.

Environmental surfaces are divided into clinical contact surfaces and housekeeping surfaces. Housekeeping surfaces such as floors, walls, and sinks have limited risk of disease transmission. Action plan for cleaning and disinfecting surfaces in patient-care areas and critical areas should be different than the non-critical areas.

Cleaning is the necessary first step of any disinfection protocol. Cleaning is a form of decontamination that renders the environmental surface safe by removing organic material and visible soils, all of which interfere with microbial inactivation. If a surface has not been cleaned first, the success of the disinfection process can be compromised.

Effective cleaning and disinfection is to prevent and control the spread of diseases.

Microgen’s products are recommended for use by healthcare professionals, concerned for hygiene and controlling the hazards of cross contamination.
