Cleaning for C. diff

It can be challenging enough to perform infectious disease cleanup, and then it becomes even more difficult when the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) labels your problem as a “superbug”—and that’s exactly how they’ve categorized Clostridium difficile (C. diff). This antibiotic-resistant bacteria poses an urgent threat and, to make matters worse, a CDC study found that 82% of people infected by C. diff had, in the weeks leading up to diagnosis, been to an outpatient facility. Cross-contamination of this often-dangerous bug, then, can happen far too easily, carried out on shoes, hands, purses, bags, wheelchairs, and more.

Cleaning for C. diff and its disinfection would be so much easier if these germs didn’t lurk in public places, but they do, including in hospitals and other health care facilities. Then, people leave these facilities, unaware of what diseases they might be spreading—and they often use public transportation, using routes that include stops to businesses and schools, creating even more opportunities for infectious diseases to spread.

Cleaning for MRSA

Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Infections (MRSA) can also be deadly, with significant potential to spread. That’s why the CDC considers MRSA to be a serious threat. Both of these diseases can be even more dangerous for people with a weakened immune system, as well as to young children and elderly people.

The problem and associated dangers are real. So, it makes sense to consider professional infectious disease cleanup services whenever there is a problem with C. diff, MRSA, swine flu, and other potentially serious infectious diseases.

Infectious Disease FAQs

What types of infectious diseases should I be most concerned about in Houston?

Well, the reality is that what is being spread in Houston and the surrounding area changes, often because of the season. At any one time, though, there are multiple kinds of bacteria, viruses, parasites, and more that are being passed around, many of them too small to be seen with the naked eye. Some of these microorganisms don’t cause diseases; others cause fairly mild ones, including the common cold, while still others can cause serious disease. Some of these diseases can even be fatal. Some of the most serious infectious diseases include Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, tuberculosis, malaria, HIV/AIDS, and more, plus those we’ve already mentioned: C. diff, MRSA, and the swine flu.

What is a communicable disease, and how is it different from an infectious one?

A communicable disease is one that can spread from one type of organism to another, say from an animal to a human being. Then, once one person has a communicable disease, then he or she can pass it along to someone else, and so on. A disease is considered infectious simply by the type of disease it is, and does not refer to how it can be transmitted.

What can we do to prevent the spread of these infectious diseases?

Vaccinations can help to prevent some diseases, while frequent hand washing can slow the transmission of them and help to add a layer of protection to people who are consistent in thoroughly washing their hands. If you know that someone is ill, try to stay away from him or her during the period of contagion. Don’t use any of their belongings, either at home or work. (How do you know if an item can spread contagion? If there is any reasonable chance that it’s true, then assume it is true.) If you’re sick and possibly contagious, stay away from other people. Note that these strategies aren’t entirely foolproof. They’re intended, instead, to provide some level of disease control.

What is the value in using professional infectious disease cleanup services?

Whoever participates in biohazard cleanup is exposing himself/herself to the pathogens being cleaned and disinfected. So, there can be significant risk involved, which means that having the appropriate equipment, cleaning materials, and training is crucial. Plus, not all pathogens are visible, so you can’t always know when the area is fully restored. The answer? Selecting a professional company that uses the right methods, materials, and equipment.

Disease Outbreaks and Houston Infectious Disease Cleanup

It’s bad enough when one or two people get sick, but when the disease spreads to groups of people, then the outbreak becomes potentially much more dangerous. Pathogens can spread in numerous ways, which multiplies the health hazards involved. Ways that pathogenic microbial agents can spread include from person to person, with other transmission methods including through:

  • liquids
  • food
  • body fluids
  • contaminated objects
  • airborne inhalation (breathing)
ABT can prevent the spread of infectious disease
