Sanitizing and disinfecting high-touch surfaces is an essential part of a facility’s daily cleaning protocol. However, it’s nearly impossible for cleaning teams to ensure these surfaces are disinfected every time someone touches them. Even with access to sanitizing wipes, it’s difficult to monitor whether these surfaces get cleaned after each use – and that they’re being cleaned properly.
Check out these three quick tips on how to get the most out of your sanitizing and disinfecting wipes:
1. Keep them handy
Keep sanitizing and disinfecting wipes close at hand in your facility so that even non-custodial team members can use them to sanitize their workspace and any potential high-touch zones around them.
2. Always read the label
Wipes are great for their convenience and ease of use, but it’s still important to read the manufacturer’s label before using them. Here you’ll find important information like instructions for safe use and the product’s dwell/contact time, which is how long it needs to stay wet on a surface in order to achieve its kill claim.
3. Try new, innovative products for better results
The right sanitizing wipes will not only remove bacteria from surfaces but will also prevent it from coming back. Scott® 24 Hour Sanitizing Wipes are the first pre-saturated wipe that create a protective barrier on sanitized surfaces.
