11th Hour, Inc. provides communicable disease cleaning and disinfection for C-Difficile in the States of Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Iowa, South Dakota & North Dakota. We offer our C-diff cleanup to home owners, property managers, hotels/motels, nursing homes, hospices, hospitals, medical facilities, commercial properties, and literally anywhere a possible spread of infection has occurred. C-Difficile (also known as C Diff, CDAD, or Clostridium Difficile) is a germ or ‘superbug’ that is easily transmitted from person to person. Without proper protocol, procedures, and chemical applications done by the professionals at 11th Hour, a bacterial infection can easily be passed on to your friends, family, and loved ones without ever knowing it. Often after contact, no symptoms of illness will occur. It’s only when your immune system is compromised, or with the use of antibiotics that the disease makes itself known. If your property has been contaminated with Clostridium Difficle Spores, it is strongly advised by gastroenterologists and health departments not only only from a medical safety point of view, but also from a liability standpoint that your property be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected by experts in infectious disease control.
While many companies might recommend or use bleach, sporicides, or quaternary disinfectants in an attempt to rid a property of dangerous bacterium, this is simply ineffective. Studies have shown that bleach only removes approximately 70% of clostridium difficile spores on hard surfaces, and that broad spectrum disinfectants and most sporicides are utterly useless to combat c-diff. These chemicals are actually dangerous to humans and can assist in spreading contamination; doing more harm than good. You also have to take into account that none of these products work on porous materials, and throughout the process any fabric or customer belongings are ruined with these outdated methods. At 11th Hour, we use a revolutionary system that is tested to kill 99.9999% of all c-difficile spores, and does not stain or tarnish any personal property. We use state of the art equipment, and with our four step proprietary and scientific system to eliminate any dangers residing in your property, you can rest at ease knowing you’ve called the right company in your time of need.
Clostridium Difficile Prevention Tips from 11th Hour
C-diff can live on surfaces for months; potentially years, and hand sanitizer will do nothing to prevent infection. If you think putting your clothes in a washer or dryer can disinfect them as well, think again. C-Diff spores and bacterium are only killed at boiling temperature. You can contract C-Difficile from hand rails, shopping carts, door knobs, light switches, telephones, public computers, and almost any commonly touched public item. If you suspect you’ve been exposed to C-DIFF, we recommend you take some necessary precautions before we arrive to disinfect your property.
- Dispose of any clothing and shoes worn during the time of potential exposure
- Wash hands vigorously for over three minutes with the use of chlorhexidine soap
- Take a multi strain high quality probiotic daily, keep refrigerated for maximum potency
- Do not re-enter the premises that you believe to be contaminated with infectious spores
- Use latex or nitrile gloves when visiting person(s) with Clostridium Difficile
- Avoid antibiotics unless prescribed by a doctor, tell them of your exposure to c-diff
- If you have continuous diarrhea, swelling or stomach pain – visit your doctor immediately
