C-Diff Clean Up in St Augustine
C-Diff (Clostridium Difficile) is a bacterium that causes life-threatening symptoms, normally affecting the colon. It's known as a superbug in hospital circles, and contributes to close to 20,000 deaths a year. It is increasingly resistant to antibiotics.
This spore-forming bacteria normally attacks people on antibiotics, which of course diminish normal healthy flora in the body. It is transmitted through people's hands from surfaces – light fixtures to bathroom appliances. It can survive for months unless the area is sanitized. Once a patient has this on his hands, it's just a short trip to his mouth.
This hyper-virulent strain of bacteria affects 500,000 people annually. Not all die, but the symptoms are severe and debilitating. Fatal outbreaks have occurred at various hospitals throughout the world. Infections have been both more common and more severe in affected patients, probably due largely to the use of antibiotics.
Our decontamination and sanitization technicians at Biologic have the expertise to take care of the problem. We go beyond surface cleaning and ensure a thorough decontamination. We attack the problem with special cleaning protocols – those that have been proven effective in hospital environments. As usual, response time is immediate and after we've performed a full professional
cleaning, we'll have a laboratory certify the effectiveness of the cleaning.
