Let’s get this straight: bacteria and germs are all around us, and these tiny microbes can be spread in a multitude of ways. It can be transmitted through direct contact with contaminated surfaces, transport of droplets via coughing or sneezing, and exposure to airborne particles. In some cases, you may encounter a group of potentially pathogenic bacteria that may lead to serious infections and cause you to become ill.
Learn how transmission of bacteria and germs occurs, as well as solutions on how to keep all the nasty little germs at bay.
Understanding surface and airborne transmission
Firstly, let’s talk about surface transmission. Also known as fomite transmission, this happens when you come in contact with surfaces or objects that contain bacteria and germs left behind by others. It can also be passed on when an infected person coughs or sneezes on it. For instance, you may touch a doorknob that has been contaminated with bacteria and germs, then directly touching your nose, mouth or eyes as a matter of habit.
Next, let’s move on to airborne transmission. Just like how bacteria and germs live on surfaces, they can thrive in the air too. It’s commonly transmitted via dust particles or small respiratory droplets that are expelled when an infected person coughs, sneezes or exhales in any way. These airborne germs can travel great distances and remain suspended in the air for extended periods of time – which can lead to airborne transmission if inhaled by someone else, or even surface transmission if landed on surfaces.
Preventing surface and airborne transmission with BioCair
What can you do to keep the germ fest to a minimum? Prevention is always better than cure.
Besides following good hygiene practices, one should always make it a habit to disinfect your home regularly to curb the spread of surface and airborne contamination. So why not get a do-it-all product that serves dual purpose like the BioCair Dry-Mist Disinfecting Machine?
Suitable for everyday use, this aerial disinfecting machine is capable of disinfecting both airborne – and surface – pathogens in just one use. When used with the BC-65 Air Purifying Solution, it produces a dry mist that’s effective in killing 99.999% of airborne bacteria, viruses, fungus and spores within 60 seconds of contact.
Once it’s done with the airborne particles, the mist will eventually land and settle on nearby surfaces and objects within the household environment, wiping out any traces of surface bacteria and germs along with it. To use, simply turn it on for an hour per day in an enclosed area, and come back to a clean, disinfected environment. This will help to keep your surroundings safe from bacteria and germs, while greatly reducing the risks of surface and airborne transmission.
Using our disinfecting machines also prevents the overuse of other heavy-duty disinfectant solutions that might lead to adverse toxic effects. What’s great about BioCair is that our products are specially formulated to be non-toxic and alcohol-free, so you can continue to live your life without worrying about bacteria and germs getting inside your home.
