Diseases can occur due to many bacteria and fungi that can be dangerous and contagious. Over the years, we have learned what these are. We are able to locate their source, and we know the proper remediation procedures and the incubation time periods.
Most common diseases that need an immediate cleaning are as follows:
- MRSA staff infection
Formerly known as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, is a type of staph bacteria. It is resistant to certain antibiotics, like oxacillin, penicillin, and amoxicillin. Most of the infections are skin infections; however, the more severe and life-threatening infections will occur in healthcare facilities and settings. The most common body site it is carried in is the nose. We use a hospital-grade cleaner that removes this bacteria.
- C. diff
Formerly known as clostridum difficile. It is a germ that can cause intestinal illness and excessive diarrhea. Most cases of this infection occur in patients that were taking an antibiotic. The elderly have the greatest risk of getting this infection. The C. diff spores can live outside the body for a very long time. Often times the C. diff is treated in the hospital with cautious treatment using gloves and gowns by the medical staff. Once home, the diarrhea should be under control; however, if the diarrhea has contaminated the home, we can be called in to clean. With our experience, we are able to clean the most probable infected areas.
In these cases, if the infection is brought into the home, we are able to clean the most common affected areas with the proper cleaners to assist in preventing the transfer of the disease. We have cleaned these many times before. Call for details.
