Germs and pathogens can spread easily from person to person, surface to person or via the air. When a person coughs or sneezes, they produce airborne respiratory droplets that can be inhaled or contaminate surfaces and objects. Throughout the day, hands that touch these surfaces can transmit germs to other surfaces or directly to people. Touching our eyes, nose or mouth transmits these germs easily into the body. Commonly-touched surfaces including keyboards, lift buttons and door handles can also act as reservoirs for these infectious organisms.
Prevent the spread of germs and protect the safety of your staff and visitors with our COVID-19 Recovery Programme to prepare your business for operations after the circuit breaker.

Dry your hands using and an air hand dryer or paper towel to reduce workplace injuries and transmission of bacteria and viruses.
Germs spread easily in a toilet cubicle. Flushing the toilet with the lid up can also cause sneeze effect, causing clouds of tiny water droplets associated with urine and faecal matter to spread. Therefore, it is without doubt that the toilet seats contain harmful bacteria including E. coli and Salmonella. Not only does the use of a toilet seat cleaner and toilet sanitiser help to effectively remove 99.99% of harmful germs, but also encourage good washroom hygiene habits.
The air we breathe in may contain harmful gases and particles, which can affect our health and level of comfort. Air quality matters for a holistic and robust solution on sanitisation. The InspireAir 72 air purification unit helps achieve cleaner and fresher air that promotes a healthier, comfortable and productive environment.
The features and benefits of InspireAir 72 include:
In complement to good personal hygiene and air hygiene, surface sanitisation also plays a critical role in reducing viruses and bacteria.

COVID-19 has drawn attention away from the notorious Dengue Fever. A third strain of the dengue virus has surfaced. With the lack of knowledge and immunity on this new strain of dengue virus can result in more reported cases. Additionally, with a change to a warmer climate, dengue cases can heighten as their lifecycle is shortened to 7 days instead of the usual lifecycle of 15 days. This suggests that eggs will develop in adult mosquitoes in a shorter time, resulting in more mosquitoes in the environment.
Besides good housekeeping practices such as removing stagnant water, mosquito control activities can help you prevent mosquito breeding at home. Rentokil Singapore has recently introduced contact-less mosquito control with the In2Care mosquito trap. This trap works to create a domino effect to eliminate adult mosquitoes in the surrounding.
Initial’s holistic approach to hygiene solutions ensures businesses are covered in all key risk areas.
