Great video for training. Where do you get the squeeze bottle top for your disinfectant? I want to switch from spray triggers. Thanks!

Sarah, we are currently using a quaternary ammonium disinfectant that is veterinary rated to be bactericidal, virucidal, and fungicidal. We do use a different disinfectant in our isolation ward for the big guns. There are a LOT of products out there, I recommend looking for veterinary specific to ensure efficacy against the bugs you need to kill.

Christie,we order the flip top caps from a janitorial supply company. The bottles are the same as any spray bottle, you just need to find the flip caps. They are much safer as far as humans and animals inhaling the spray vapor, and the contact time is longer - once you spread the product around it takes longer to dry than the fine mist.

I love how you clean a room. What cleaning tool are you using for the mopping ? Does it have a disposable cover, or is it something that is washed like a dust mop. I hate our mop buckets!!

Jennifer, We use Rubbermaid Commercial Hygen mopping tools. They are great! We have two mops with different size heads; one is long and fits a microfiber pad that is used for dry mopping, the other has a shorter head and fits a terrycloth like pad that is used for wet mops. Both types of pads are applied with Velcro, easy to apply and peel off for washing and reuse.
