FAQs

What is C Diff?

You take antibiotics to knock out a bacterial infection.  But for some people, these drugs can trigger a potentially life-threatening infection caused by a type of bacteria called clostridium difficile of C. diff. 

It can cause colitis, a serious inflammation of the colon.

Is C. diff Contagious?

Yes.

C. diff is contagious.

Microorganisms can be spread from person-to-person by touch or by direct contact with contaminated objects and surfaces (for example, clothing, cell phones, exercise equipment, desks, restaurant tables)

Some individuals are carriers of this bacterium but have no symptoms of infection.

How long can C diff live on surfaces?

C diff spores resist desiccation for months and can persist on hard surfaces for as long as 5 months.

What is MRSA?

MRSA is a super bug.

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus is a gram-positive bacterium that is genetically different from other strains of Staphylococcus aureus. 

MRSA is responsible for several difficult-to-treat infections in humans. 

Generally speaking, it is resistant to several antibiotics. 


How long can MRSA live on surfaces?

MRSA Can live:


  • 8 weeks on a mop head
  • 9 weeks on a cotton towel
  • 203 days (over 6 months) on a blanket
  • On the skin of healthy individuals with no symptoms indefinitely.

How can I eliminate these viruses?

Research is showing that C diff and MRSA are resistant to many cleaning agents associated with "spraying and wiping" which is ineffective- can miss spots- and worse, the cleaners cross contaminate in the process. 


The most effective solution is by the EPA Validated Halo Fogger.


The EPA States that the Halo Fogger can eliminate 99.999% of C. Diff.
