We’ve received a common query we’d like to address: Can C-Diff contamination, which has affected a family member in the hospital, be effectively disinfected at home?

Dealing with Clostridioides difficile (C. diff) contamination requires thorough disinfection to prevent its spread and protect the health of individuals in the affected area. At AAA Scene Cleaners, we understand the importance of effective disinfection, especially in situations involving C. diff contamination. Let’s explore how we handle this challenging scenario and why our approach stands out.

Disinfection Process for C. diff Contamination:

  1. Preparation: Ensuring proper ventilation and removing visible contaminants is crucial before starting the disinfection process.
  2. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): Our technicians wear appropriate PPE to prevent exposure to C. diff spores.
  3. Disinfectant Application: We utilize the TOMI SteraMist system, generating a fine mist of a hydrogen peroxide-based disinfectant applied evenly throughout the affected area.
  4. Dwell Time: The disinfectant mist can dwell on surfaces for around 7-10 minutes to deactivate C. diff spores and other pathogens.
  5. Aeration: After dwell time, the area aerates as the SteraMist system breaks down hydrogen peroxide into harmless components.
  6. Verification: We may use biological indicators to verify the successful elimination of C. diff spores.

Advantages of Using TOMI SteraMist System for C. diff Contamination and Disinfection:

  1. High Efficacy: Achieves a 99.9999% reduction in pathogens, including C. diff spores.
  2. No Residue: Leaves no residue, ensuring surfaces are safe for immediate use.
  3. Even Coverage: Reaches inaccessible areas, providing comprehensive disinfection.
  4. Speed and Efficiency: Allows quick turnaround times, which is crucial in rapid disinfection situations.
  5. Safety: Safe for use in various environments and eco-friendly.
  6. Validation: We validate the disinfection process’s effectiveness, providing clients peace of mind.

In conclusion, the TOMI SteraMist system used by AAA Scene Cleaners is highly effective and efficient for disinfecting spaces contaminated with C. diff, offering thorough pathogen reduction and ensuring a safe environment for occupants.
