Who would use Steri-7 Xtra?

This high-strength disinfectant is suitable for use on almost any surface but is particularly beneficial to healthcare environments such as GP practices and dental surgeries. These are places where we’re most likely to be exposed to germs and thorough cleaning methods are therefore crucial.

As well as providing staff and patients with a safe and clean environment, Steri-7 Xtra offers a number of additional benefits:

  • If you run a GP practice for example, your staff will be exposed to all sorts of illnesses every day which puts them at risk of picking up infections. Proper sanitisation eliminates the likelihood of this happening and can greatly reduce staff absenteeism.

 

  • As well as protecting your employees, you’re also reducing the risk of your customers picking up germs and illnesses. If there’s a breakout of an illness at your practice or surgery, this could damage your reputation or even result in your premises being shut down.

 

  • Because healthcare environments are so sensitive, there are legal requirements you need to follow in order to ensure that certain levels of cleanliness are adhered to. Steri-7 Xtra helps you to ensure that you’re complying with regulations.
