Office Supplies You Need For Your Workplace
Did you know that almost every environment on the planet contains microorganisms and harmful bacteria? In fact, recent studies suggest that one square inch of skin can contain more than 600,000 bacteria. While most of this bacteria is virtually harmless to humans, disease-causing organisms known as pathogens can be dangerous to encounter. One of the first ways to ensure that your office is clean and sterile is to invest in a quality disinfectant. Using the right kinds of disinfectants on the different surfaces of your workplace can be critical in helping to prevent the spread of colds, flus, and other illnesses. With the large variety of office disinfectants and cleaners on the market, it can be challenging trying to choose the best one for your workplace.
Let’s look a little closer at how disinfectants work before we get into the various types available.
Disinfectants: How Do They Work?
If you’ve been wondering how disinfectants work to sterilize your office, you’ve come to the right place! These chemical agents are applied to non-living objects in an attempt to destroy bacteria, fungi, viruses, mold, and mildew that can be found living on various objects. Today, disinfectant formulas must be registered with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), before they can be put on the market.
Some popular disinfectant types include:
- Quaternary Ammonium Compounds (Quats) – This type of disinfectant tends to be very popular among hospital and institutional settings due to its low cost and quick action against a variety of microorganisms.
- Chlorine Compounds – This type of disinfectant is highly recommended for cleaning up bodily fluids, making it the perfect bathroom cleaner. These disinfectants tend to be fairly inexpensive, however they have been known to be corrosive and cause discoloration if not used appropriately.
- Alcohols – As you may already know, when alcohol is diluted in water it can act as a very effective agent against bacteria. The downside of these cleaners is that they evaporate more quickly than most and they are flammable.
At Perkaroma, we offer a wonderful array of janitorial supplies and office cleaners. When you sign up for one of our managed inventory services, we’ll keep a close eye on your inventory and bring you the supplies you need, when you need it.
