Menold's NEXT Pathogen Control
Pathogen control is serious business. Pathogens are biological agents that cause disease. These microorganisms come in the form of viruses, bacteria, and fungi. They can cause problems in a variety of settings such as hospitals, schools, day care facilities, public transportation, prisons, livestock production, food-processing units, hotels, and homes. Menold Construction and Restoration uses the NEXT Pathogen Control System to eliminate and control these viruses, bacteria, and fungi.
Menold’s NEXT Pathogen Control System utilizes a safe and proven anti-microbial system, approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and registered with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), that delivers long-lasting protection against surface and airborne organisms. NEXT kills surface C. diff, MRSA, staph, and other known viruses, bacteria, and fungi, while reducing organic odors in the process.
The Occupational Safety Health Administration (OSHA) doesn’t mess around when it comes to preventing the spread of blood-borne pathogens—which are infectious microorganisms present in human blood and body fluids. The agency requires employers to have an exposure control plan that explains to its workers what they can do to prevent the spread of infectious diseases.
OSHA also reports that MRSA—types of antibiotic-resistant bacteria —have become more common in people of all ages. Consequently, employers in different industries across the country have become concerned about the spread of these bacteria. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention provides detailed information about staph and MRSA infections and how to prevent them.
Menold Construction and Restoration is located in Morton, Normal, and Champaign, Illinois, and has been servicing Central Illinois for more than 35 years.
