Air quality management is a key component in any effective infection prevention and control regime.
Poor air quality can lead to the spread of harmful bacteria, which in turn, can create bad odours and increase the risk of infections.
Airborne microorganisms grow at very rapid rates. In just 8 hours, a single bacteria cell can multiply to over 8 million, meaning odours prevail and the health risks increase. Standard room cleaning and disinfection methods are often not enough. As soon as the area is cleaned, the airborne microorganisms immediately begin to settle, recolonising the surfaces where the bacteria continues to grow and spread.
