The proper administration of hospitals, medical centres, clinics, and healthcare facilities is a science unto itself. The cleanliness and hygiene standards and protocols at hospitals are much more stringent than those of homes, offices, and schools. This is understandable, given the high traffic of sick people and the higher risk of infection by germs.
There are standardised protocols for hand hygiene and protection for doctors and medical personnel. As far as the cleaning and sanitisation of floors, furniture and other surfaces are concerned, they become the responsibility of the hospital administrator. Ensuring they are germ-free is extremely important for the safety and protection of patients, families, guests, and hospital staff.
Picking the Right Products
Hospitals in India always have high footfall. This makes the need for cleaning and disinfection considerably high. Floors, furniture and other surfaces attract dust, dirt, and grime. Apart from these, there is a great deal of medical and food spillage that make cleaning and disinfecting important.
Add to this the need to reduce infections, and we can see how high-quality, proven products can be invaluable for the hospital cleaning crew or housekeeping staff. Products like Dettol and Lizol are among the most widely approved products among the medical community and healthcare industry.
Lizol is commonly used as a floor cleaner, but the product is designed to be an all-in-one disinfectant surface cleaner. You can use Lizol to mop the floors of the hospital and clean and disinfect a variety of surfaces such as slaps, sinks, tiles, countertops, doorknobs and handrails.
Lizol can be used to clean all stone, granite, marble, ceramic, stainless steel and non-porous surfaces. One of the greatest advantages of adding Lizol to your cleaning toolkit is that you do not require multiple products like detergents and sanitisers, or disinfectants. Lizol is an all-in-one product that helps with both.
What Is In the Lizol 5 Litre Pack?
Lizol disinfectant floor cleaner contains Benzalkonium Chloride, an ammonium compound commonly used in many cleaning products and detergents. It is also a very powerful antimicrobial agent. Studies have shown that Benzalkonium Chloride is very effective against bacteria and viruses but is also a fungicide that will destroy fungal growth. Fungal growth is higher in dark, damp spaces like cupboards, cafeterias, kitchens, washrooms and toilets. Regular use of Lizol prevents such growth.
Other ingredients that make Lizol a very effective cleaning product include Ethanol, Alkyl, and Dimethyl Benzyl Ammonium Saccharinate.
Complete Disinfection and Sanitation
Lizol is India’s top household cleaning brand. It is also the preferred cleaning and disinfectant product for schools, offices, hospitals, and restaurant administrators. In addition, it is highly recommended by the Indian Medical Association.
Lizol comes in a triple germ action formula which kills 99% of all bacteria, viruses, and fungi, including the COVID-19 virus.
How to Use Lizol?
To clean and disinfect floor and bathroom surfaces:
- Dilute one capful of 16 ml Lizol in half a bucket of water (approximately 4 litres).
- Use this solution to mop the floor or wipe down surfaces.
For tiles, sinks, and other non-porous surfaces:
- To remove tough stains and spots, use Lizol undiluted
- Apply directly to the stained surface and leave for 5 minutes
- Rinse thoroughly with water
- One of the most important safety instructions is reading the labels of the Lizol floor cleaner and using it in the right concentration for mopping, cleaning, and stain removal.
- Do not store Lizol with medication or edible items. Use a separate cupboard for storing cleaning products.
- Teach the cleaning crew to identify hotspots and sanitise them with dilute Lizol solution.
- Avoid contact with eyes or accidental ingestion.
