Even though flu season is nearing its end, it is imperative that medical professionals and dentists continue their diligence in disinfecting surfaces in their offices and patient rooms. Highly contagious viruses can be spread through the air and through the touching of surfaces such as counters, chairs, and doorknobs. It is recommended that these surfaces be cleaned after each patient. Research from a 2018 study found that up to 41% of surfaces within a healthcare facility can become contaminated in just 4 hours.1
Using the appropriate disinfectant is also very important. The disinfectant should be suited to the types of surfaces being cleaned, surfaces like plastic, acrylic, and laminate. Diligence is the biggest contributor to infection prevention in the healthcare and dental industries.
