Utah Superbug Cleanup – Fast, Thorough, Discreet! Steri-Clean Utah
Toxic Pathogen Cleanup in Utah
Toxic pathogenic bacteria or viruses, also referred to as superbugs are strains of bacteria that are resistant to most antibiotics commonly used today. Viruses and bacteria can live two or more hours on surfaces like cafeteria tables, doorknobs, toilets, and desks. Frequent handwashing will help reduce the chance of contamination from these common surfaces. Steri-Clean Utah can properly disinfect decontaminated areas and restore the area to a safe environment throughout the Wasatch Front. Through a variety of cleaning methods of appropriate and EPA registered disinfectants, Steri-Clean Utah can provide superbug cleanup. Here are some of the common superbugs that require clean up:
MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus)
MRSA is bacterium superbug that causes infections in various parts of the body. The symptoms of MRSA depend on where a person is infected. It typically causes mild infections on the skin, causing pimples or boils but it can also cause more serious skin infections or infect surgical wounds, bloodstream, lungs, or the urinary tract.
C-Diff (Clostridium Difficile)
Clostridium difficile, often called “C. diff,” is a bacterium superbug that can cause symptoms ranging from diarrhea, fever, stomach ache, and nausea to life-threatening inflammation of the colon. Illness from C. diff most commonly appears in older adults who take antibiotics, people who stay in hospitals and nursing homes for an extended period of time, and those with weakened immune systems or who have had C diff previously. C. diff affects about 500,000 Americans a year with an estimated 15,000 deaths directly attributable to C. diff. In some cases, infected individuals are unable to relieve themselves in a bathroom which ultimately infects the entire space where they have been confined.
Although not a superbug, Norovirus can be a problem for many people as it is very contagious and can spread rapidly. Norovirus is a group of viruses that cause vomiting and diarrhea in people. The infection is typically short lived in healthy people, but those who young, old, or have compromised immune systems have longer bouts with the virus. It is spread through direct contact, eating food or drink contaminated with norovirus, or touching a surface with norovirus and then touching your mouth and/or food items. Good hygiene and disinfecting surfaces touched by those infected are great ways to prevent the spread of the illness.
