Hard Surface Hygiene

Thursday, May 21, 2009


Clean homes. Clean workplaces. Clean schools. We’re all drawn to the clean we can “see.” But we also know that just because something looks clean, doesn’t mean it really is clean.

For decades, The Soap and Detergent Associations in the United States and Canada have been leaders in educating the public on the role of disinfecting and sanitizing in preventing the spread of illness-causing germs. You can’t see germs — like Salmonella, E. coli, or Influenza. But “pathogenic,” or disease-causing, germs can be alive and thriving on surfaces all around you — at home, at work and at school. And as we continue to hear words like “pandemic” more frequently in the news — the idea of disinfecting and sanitizing the surfaces we touch becomes even more top-of-mind.
