Flexible Floor-Cleaning Routine Helps School Prevent Spread of Infection
Date:3/16/2010

Scrubbers with the EcoFlex System from Advance allowed WHS to develop flexible cleaning routine

Sioux Falls, SD (Vocus) March 16, 2010 -- A new case study from Advance tells how Washington High School used the EcoFlex System floor scrubber technology from Advance to fight the spread of a staph infection in the school’s gymnasium. Many cleaning and maintenance departments are finding that their regular floor-cleaning routines do not help protect against H1N1, MRSA and other viruses and infections. WHS controlled the spread of the infection by using versatile equipment that allowed for a more flexible floor-cleaning routine.

Every day, students in the two gymnasiums at 330,000-square-foot Washington High School in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, participate in basketball, wrestling and other activities. Compared to cafeteria tables, doorknobs and desks, the school’s floors may not be considered obvious surfaces for exposing students to bacteria. The floors in the two gyms, however, are a constant repository for bodily fluids. Sweaty students dive for loose balls on the basketball courts, grapple opponents on the wrestling mats and participate in other activities that put them in frequent contact with potentially harmful germs and bacteria.

That’s why ensuring the gym floors’ cleanliness is part of Washington High’s daily cleaning routine. The gyms also have become one of the fronts in the effort to stop the spread of diseases, infections and viruses – particularly after a staph infection was discovered in the main gym.
