A New Standard
Filled with lots of little people and a wide range of surfaces, it is an ongoing challenge to create a genuinely hygienic environment within Early Childhood Education and Childcare Centres. With some centres outsourcing cleaning and others relying on already stretched staff to fulfil the daily cleaning protocols, managing the infection control risks is often a challenging task. One of the critical issues that we’ve identified is that conventional disinfectant products aren’t doing enough — while they kill the germs of the surface, they do nothing to defend against what is to come. This means that as soon as a surface is touched after disinfection, the potential for contamination and infection returns. All this to say, that a surface can have been recently cleaned and even ‘look clean’ but still be an infection risk.
A CASE STUDY
We put SIQURA to the test
SIQURA selected 10 early learning and childcare centres throughout Australia and identified 10 high traffic touch points in each centre to test what impact using SIQURA had on hygiene levels. To ensure accuracy of our results we used two different measurement methods — ATP Testing and Bacterial Plate Testing and conducted the test over a 30 day period. The results will surprise you...
