What’s Your Defense Against Germs?

What’s Your Defense Against Germs?

We are surrounded by germs.  They are not only on us, they are on the surfaces of everything we touch throughout our day.  “There’s very few surfaces that are truly clean,” said Dr. Aaron Glatt, president and CEO of New Island Hospital in Bethpage, N.Y., and a spokesman for the Infectious Disease Society of America. “You’re almost never going to culture something and not find some germs on it.”

That is exactly what Dr. Christopher Mason and his research team found when they gathered DNA from New York City turnstiles, ticket kiosks, railings and benches in a transit system shared by 5.5 million riders every day.  “In the process, they uncovered how commuters seed the city subways every day with bacteria from the food they eat, the pets or plants they keep, and their shoes, trash, sneezes and unwashed hands,” reported Robert Lee Hotz in The Wall Street Journal earlier this year.

The New York City subway it seems is home to 562 species of bacteria.  Although most species were found to be low risk, at least 67 of those species can make people sick.  ” Among the pathogenic and infectious bacteria, the Cornell researchers identified DNA related to strep infections at 66 stations and urinary tract infections at 192 stations. They found E. coli at 56 stations and other bacteria related to food poisoning at 215 stations,” according to Hotz.

And when all of these commuters arrive at their homes and offices, the unwanted germs come with them. That is why it is important to partner with a professional residential cleaning company like Maid Right.
