    Frequently Asked Questions

    Why is hand washing better than hand sanitizer?

    Soap and rubbing hands together under running water removes oil, dirt, and harmful surface germs. Hand sanitizer doesn't remove dirt in which germs hide and only kills a few easy-to-kill germs.

    Why do we have to use district cleaning products?

    Common household cleaners and disinfectants may cause allergic reactions or have other health impacts. District products have the proper "safety data sheets," they kill germs and are safe.

    What kind of cleaner does the school district use?

    We use Ecolab Hydrogen Peroxide cleaner and disinfectant provided and labeled by the custodial staff. A five minute dwell time is suggested for disinfecting surfaces.
