What Is Infection Control?

Indoor surfaces and air may look and smell clean. But time and again it may be contaminated with harmful microorganisms that contain airborne and viral diseases. It is contagious and spreads from person to person in various common ways which include:

  • Breathing in air-borne droplets from infected person
  • Consuming food or water contaminated with a virus
  • Indirect transmission from person to person possibly from pests such as mosquito, tick, or rats
  • Touching surfaces containing viruses (cross contamination)

With the recent rise of Covid-19, it has triggered worrying citizens to stay healthy and hygienic. We often hear the quote "prevention is better than cure", which we couldn’t emphasise more when it comes to airborne, viral and communicable diseases. Infected person can have life-threatening complications, such as dehydration, bacterial pneumonia, and other secondary bacterial infections and are especially riskier for those who are young or very old.

Types of Rentokil Surface Sanitation



There are 2 types of surface sanitation service offered by Rentokil Initial which are known as Rentokil Basic Surface Sanitation (RBSS) and Rentokil Surface Shield ™ Sanitation (RSSS).

RBSS with its holistic approach involves a thorough misting treatment to deliver the solutions to the entire space. The mist will be directed at a high point to let it fall naturally on all the contact surfaces. Your premises get sanitised in a few hours.

For extra protection, RSSS involves the process of sanitising wipe in addition before the misting treatment. With this, it provides an extra layer of coating across all contacted surfaces, which prevent bacteria and germ growth, thus reducing recontamination. The coating will stay intact up to 30 days even with routine daily cleaning.

Additionally, RSSS can be applied on commercial vehicles which are constantly on the go. You never know if your vehicle picked up any virus or bacteria.
