Proper cleanup procedures are crucial in preventing the spread of C. diff, a dangerous bacterium that can cause inflammation of the colon and life-threatening symptoms. C. diff can be spread through contact with contaminated surfaces, food, human or animal feces, or when infected individuals do not wash their hands. It is prevalent in healthcare settings and has become resistant to many antibiotics and cleaners. Proper cleanup and remediation should be left to professionals due to the highly contagious nature and longevity of the bacteria. To minimize the risk of C. diff affecting your home, wash your hands frequently, clean bathrooms regularly with the proper products, dispose of soiled materials immediately, and avoid unnecessary use of antibiotics. Spaulding Decon is highly trained to handle biohazard cleanup, including C. diff, and offers thorough testing, proprietary chemicals and products, and post-cleaning testing to ensure complete removal of biohazard threats.
