Carolyn Koehn is the cleaning guru for Via Christi Hospitals in Wichita. As director of Safety and Environmental Services, it’s her job to make sure hospitals are clean and patients, visitors and staff are safe. But you can benefit from her knowledge, too.
To cut down on dirt, germs and allergens in spring and year-round in your home and office, Carolyn recommends you hit the following high-touch surfaces in your home and office with disposable disinfecting wipes.
“The most important thing you can do is carefully read all product labels and follow instructions,” says Carolyn adds. “There may be information about cautions for use, contact duration requirements, residue management, and so on. Never mix chemicals.”
