Meridian Invests in New Cleaning Equipment
Meridian has recently enhanced the cleaning and disinfecting protocols already in place with our investment in the Clorox® Total 360® System, an electrostatic sprayer paired with trusted Clorox® disinfecting and sanitizing solutions for more comprehensive surface disinfection, which will help prevent illnesses from occurring and stop the spread of harmful germs if spikes in illness do occur.
Illness-causing viruses like rhinovirus, which causes the common cold, influenza and norovirus can survive on surfaces for up to a week, while bacteria like Staph and MRSA can survive on surfaces for up to seven months, making cleaning and disinfecting an important first line of defense. The Clorox® Total 360® System uses a patented electrostatic delivery system to provide superior surface coverage by helping disinfectants and sanitizers target germ-prone surfaces like desks, restrooms, door handles, upholstered furniture and drapes. The system works by charging and atomizing the Clorox® disinfecting or sanitizing solution, delivering a powerful flow of charged particles that are attracted to surfaces with a force stronger than gravity. This allows the disinfecting or sanitizing product to reach and consistently coat surfaces, including the sides, underside and backside of surfaces – areas that can be missed by conventional cleaning methods. In additional to manual cleaning and disinfecting protocols, our staff uses the system daily during evening cleaning to achieve comprehensive surface coverage and a more complete clean.
Meridian Superintendent Dr. PJ Caposey noted, “This solution is really impressive. Anything that we can do that improves our level of sanitation and cleanliness and increases efficiency is something that we cannot afford to not look into. I am appreciative of the partnership Meridian has established with Clorox and I am hopeful this will have a positive impact on our overall community wellness.”
Meridian has purchased one Clorox Total 360 System for each of the four buildings within the district.
