The major part of our lifetime is spent in closed rooms, whether at the workplace, at school, in meeting rooms, in airplanes or even in hospital. Therefore, responsibility is key for a clean and essentially germ-free environment. Indeed, this is the only way to restrict infections that can frequently result in serious disease.

Germs can be transmitted from person to person but also indirectly by way of contaminated surfaces, objects or the air we breathe. One third of hospital infections occur aerogenically, i.e. by way of air.

Routine cleaning and classical disinfection are frequently insufficient for effectively reducing contamination by microorganisms. More drastic measures are available but require breathing masks and special, expensive disinfection technology. Many infectious agents are known to survive on surfaces and are removed, to a limited extent, by simple cleaning. Occasionally, cleaning procedures may result in further dispersion of infectious agents.

The quality of surface hygiene critically depends on air hygiene. A key strategy involves restricting the transfer of germs from humans but also from ventilation and air conditioning devices. Therefore, modern hygienic standards emphasize a combination of surface and air disinfection as the most promising approach for achieving optimal hygienic results.
