Nursery Schools

Each year, an average of 20,000 children under the age of 5 are hospitalized because of flu-related complications.  Put a few coughing kids together in a room and inevitably, the germs will spread. Children in early daycare or preschool are simply more susceptible to respiratory and intestinal infections.

Play Equipment and Toys

How clean are the toys? Many centers have a policy that toys are cleaned and sanitized at least once a day. Guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics, however, suggest that every time a toy is placed in a child’s mouth, it should be set aside until it can be cleaned and disinfected.

Lockers and Locker Rooms

Lockers piled high with sweaty uniforms, dirty gear, and wet towels.  The high school locker room is a breeding ground for bacteria.

Dorm Rooms

Dorm rooms, cafeterias, classrooms, computer labs, and the library are all ripe with bacteria just waiting to be picked up.

HOW CLEAN IS YOUR CHILD’S SCHOOL?

Teacher with ChildrenEach year, an average of 20,000 children under the age of 5 are hospitalized because of flu-related complications. Influenza causes more hospitalizations among young children than any other vaccine-preventable disease. The single best way to protect against seasonal flu and its potential severe complications is for children to get a seasonal influenza vaccine each year. Flu vaccination is recommended for all children aged 6 months and older. Making healthy choices at school and at home can help prevent the flu and spreading flu to others says the center for disease control.

Put a few coughing kids together in a room and inevitably, the germs will spread. Children in early daycare or preschool are simply more susceptible to respiratory and intestinal infections. It also seems like every child, regardless of whether or not they are in daycare, goes through a stage where they are always ill. While daycare children do tend to contract more infections early on, they also seem to build up their immunity by the time they start school, while children who were not in daycare tend to be sick more often during the first few years of school. It’s just a rite of passage as children build up their immune systems.

Child's Painted HandsSays sick kids and daycare may go hand in hand, but there’s plenty you can do to make sure your child-care center is doing its best to keep the cold virus and flu virus — as well as assorted bacteria — under control. Start by asking some of these questions.

How often do employees wash hands? The ideal center should require employees to wash their hands as often as a doctor does — in between touching every child. If your child-care center doesn’t have a sink in every room, look for bottles of hand sanitizer. If employees have to leave the room to clean their hands, they may be less likely to do it.

How clean are the toys? Many centers have a policy that toys are cleaned and sanitized at least once a day. Guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics, however, suggest that every time a toy is placed in a child’s mouth, it should be set aside until it can be cleaned and disinfected.

Children with ToysHow often are the bathroom and entire facility disinfected? Many centers have policies in place that cleaning is done daily. Often times facilities do not disinfect as often which leads to children spreading and getting cold virus, flu virus and bacteria just by attending childcare. Disinfecting of most areas in childcare centers should be done once or twice weekly.

BIOACTIVE CHILDCARE

Bioactive Neutralizer Services has the perfect solution to many of these ongoing challenges. We use a broad spectrum biocide hospital disinfectant, rated Class IV, 100% non-toxic by the EPA. This is a revolutionary and proprietary formula that targets harmful contaminants causing no harm to you or the environment and eliminates odors. It is ideal to use around children, the elderly and those with allergies, asthma or immune deficiencies and does not emit or produce volatile organic compounds (VOC’s). It is non-corrosive, non-flammable, non-chlorinating, phosphate free, hypo-allergenic and a true biodegradable product. Sniper is ideal for multiple applications. Use Sniper on contaminated areas or any surface that may harbor microscopic enemies. It will provide immediate disinfection as well as residual protection. Sniper is non-corrosive so it does not need to be wiped off of a surface to prevent damage. It should remain on surfaces for further protection.

This biocide has been tested effective as a sporicide, germicide, bactericide, fungicide and biocide. Its proprietary formulation makes it a unique disinfection system targeting the most harmful virus, bacteria, fungi, and spores while remaining safe and eco-friendly. Sniper has the highest efficacy, is non-harmful to humans and the environment and is so easy to use. It is able to eliminate smoke, urine, vomit, bodily fluids, sulfur, ammonia and much more. Rapid kill to the most resilient molds and spores. This broad spectrum hospital disinfectant cleaner is able to fulfill many responsibilities in one product.

We combine this biocide with the most effective application method available today, electrostatic spraying system. Our electrostatic spraying system has 300% better spray penetration and coverage onto hidden areas and hard to reach areas on both porous and non-porous surfaces. Studies also found that only 15-20% of the spray from conventional or air-blast sprayers ends up on the intended surface, with nearly 60% of the chemical wasted on the ground and less than 3% reaching the underside of the target and other hidden areas. Electrostatic spraying systems takes advantage of the principal of physics to achieve better coverage and to lessen the environmental impact by allowing smaller amounts of chemicals to be used. Isn’t it time you had your childcare center Bioactive Neutralized?
