Spring is right around the corner and with it come the awakened germs that remained dormant during the cold winter months. Before falling prey to those invisible wreckers of health havoc, it’s important to understand where this surge of sickness comes from if you ever hope to keep the pest at bay. While most are typically viruses and bacteria, the spring fever is a bit more complex than that.
While many see the winter as the bearer of the flu, spring is no less a risk. The final dregs of cold are finally sloughed off to reveal the warmth of the sun. During these frantic temperature changes, the microscopic causes of our sicknesses proliferate quickly due to the sudden increases in temperature only to die off just as fast when it plummets. Unfortunately, the one-day of warmth is all a lot of them need to multiply and begin sewing their seeds of discord through the population. Leading to fevers, headaches, nausea, sore throat and numerous missed days of work, these microbes are less than beneficial.
At the same time as the proliferation of microscopic beings is the proliferation of the surrounding flora. Billions upon billions of particles take to the skies as plants begin their yearly reproductive cycle, resulting in the dreaded spring allergies. As we breathe, we inhale these tiny pollen spores. Our bodies, ever prone to overreacting, immediately see these grains as deadly threats and proceeds to produce unnecessary amounts of antibodies to defend the body. These antibodies then signal the release of histamines, our flushing defense mechanism that result in itchy eyes, runny noses and coughing fits.
In order to keep germs at bay, it is important to frequently disinfect workstations and equipment that is shared with others. While gels are fun, they can make your hands smell like alcohol and are not an effective in a massive sterilization. Even if wipes aren’t so bad, they’re only useful if there’s a trashcan nearby. This is why investing in a health station keeps the germ threat convenient and contained.
Enter the Satin Stainless Steel Wipe Dispenser. It comes with all the benefits of sanitizing wipes and none of the downfalls. Users simply use the wipe on equipment and dispose of it immediately. What really sets it apart, though, is its use of stainless steel. Having an entire dispenser that is metal and steel is the absolute best material to use in the war on bacteria. Unlike plastic, which does have tiny little openings big enough for bacteria to crawl through and take up residence in, Stainless Steel is a natural disinfectant. Simply taking a damp cloth to it to clean results in a much hygienic surface than any plastic or wooden contraption.
This cylindrical unit also comes with the freedom for you to choose the type of sanitary wipes you want to carry, as long as the roll is 9.5” in diameter. This dispenser is only to be used on surfaces and not hands. Additionally, it is easy to reload the wipe dispenser; a crossed section of metal holds the roll, which is then fed through a 2” diameter opening up top. Those passing by simply pull a sheet out when they need one. Directly below this along the side is the disposable waste opening. A bit larger at 5”, this contains the threat within a 3-gallon trash bag. It was even designed with a decorative base to add even more aesthetic value to its already unassuming yet professional look.
If you want to contain the typical spring sickness, you need to keep your employees stocked with antibacterial surface wipes. Perfect for collecting both germs and pollen, the wipes we offer are multi-purpose; useful on employee’s equipment, desks and electronics -something gels could never hope to accomplish. This year, don’t let the usual allergies and sicknesses keep your numbers down and workers out of the office. Invest in their continued healthy through a “health station.” By keeping the microscopic threats limited to one area of the office or gym equipment, you vastly reduce the threat of it spreading to everyone. Add a sense of sophistication and satisfaction with the Satin Stainless Steel dispenser.
