When including bioremediation in your healthcare facility cleaning schedule, the focal areas should include vault toilets, showers, ceramic tile floors, floor drains and many other areas where organic buildup is present, according to an article on the FacilityCare website.

Routinely scrubbing all floor drains with a brush followed by beneficial bacteria or a biologically enhanced cleaner can assure micro-space sanitation, the article said.

An automated inline injection pump system can also ensure programmatic delivery of a biologically enhanced cleaner to numerous end points. 

Biological cleaning products are biodegradable and nontoxic compounds that contain no pathogens and are noncaustic, noncorrosive and salmonella-free. Biologically enhanced cleaners consume greases, fats, oils, proteins and carbohydrates, according to the article.
