Equipping Schools for a Healthy Cold & Flu Season
As we approach another school year and the impending cold and flu season, it’s paramount that we empower ourselves with knowledge about antimicrobials and their role in safeguarding students, staff, and faculty. MonoFoil is here to ensure you’re well-informed about the broader world of antimicrobials and how they can be a game-changer for schools.
🛡 Understanding Antimicrobials – Your Ally in Health
Antimicrobials are not just a product category; they’re a crucial element in maintaining health and hygiene. This year, schools are looking to us to guide them in creating a cleaner, healthier environment. Let’s dive into the world of antimicrobials and see how they can be our strongest asset.
The cold and flu season often brings increased absences and health concerns. Our role is to educate schools on how antimicrobials can play a pivotal role in minimizing these challenges.
Antimicrobials – The Protective Shield
Antimicrobials are the backbone of defense against pathogens. Let’s educate your clients on the advantages of using antimicrobials:
1. Continuous Protection: Antimicrobials provide a continuous shield against bacteria and viruses, reducing the risk of contamination between cleanings.
2. Versatile Applications: Showcase how antimicrobials can be applied to various surfaces and materials, making them suitable for all areas of a school.
3. Peace of Mind: Explain how the use of antimicrobials can instill peace of mind among educators, parents, and students by actively working against pathogens.
How Do Antimicrobials Really Work?
How does the EPA define an antimicrobial?
“An antimicrobial pesticide is intended to disinfect, sanitize, reduce, or mitigate growth or development of microbiological organisms or protect inanimate objects, industrial processes or systems, surfaces, water, or other chemical substances from contamination, fouling, or deterioration caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi, protozoa, algae, or slime.”
-Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), 2023
Marian University – Antimicrobial Power in Action
In a proactive move to elevate the health standards for its athletes, Marian University sought out advanced antimicrobial solutions. Prior to this shift, the university’s athletic facilities regularly grappled with MRSA, a particularly resilient bacterium. At one point they had 26 active cases of MRSA among students. However, post-implementation of our MonoFoil D technology, the university witnessed a reduction down to 0 cases.
This transformation is credited to the antimicrobial’s unique active barrier, which not only eliminates pathogens upon contact but provides lasting surface protection. With this change in their sanitation approach, Marian University has improved the safety and well-being of its athletic community. This highlights the profound impact of cutting-edge antimicrobial solutions.
