OMG – Gross! Maximum Pathogen Survival Times on Surfaces in Your Spa / Salon Will SHOCK You!

OK, so I’m a geek. I have read Popular Science since I was a kid. Once in a while there is something relevant to our industry. The January 2014 Popular Science had something shockingly relevant…

Maximum pathogen survival times on dry, inanimate surface (like your counter tops, equipment, beds, tables, chairs):

Rhinovirus
(common cold)
3 hours
Hepatitis C 4 days
Herpes simplex 1 week
SARS coronavirus 28 days
MRSA
(Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus)
7 months
Salmonella indefinitely

WOW! Bad things live a long time on surfaces.

What does this mean to you? YOU NEED TO DILIGENTLY USE SURFACE DISINFECTANTS IN YOUR SPA / SALON! It can be the difference between the rampant spreading of surface pathogens and happy healthy clients and staff.
