Infectious disease sanitization has always been a serious issue in society. However, as biotechnology and pharmaceutical science advance by leaps and bounds, the need for infectious disease control through professional decontamination and sanitization has become increasingly important. One of the most common and potentially fatal of all infectious diseases is a mutated form of staph infection which can spread quickly if not adequately contained. In the early nineteen sixties, in response to the antibiotic methicillin which was used to treat staphylococcus aureus or staph infection, a new type of infection was formed.
