Cleaning For Health

WFBSC Presents

The Report

This report summarises all our findings on how the cleaning industry can promote and contribute to infection control in community settings. We provide relevant information on the most prevalent disease causing microbes that threaten community health today and recommendations on safely eliminating them from various surfaces and environments.

We also address important topics of concern such as how we can assess environmental cleaning; when a detergent is sufficient to clean a particular environment or surface and when disinfection is required; we give a thorough assessment of using bleach as a routine disinfectant and identify knowledge gaps and make suggestions for further research.
