Pathogen- a bacterium, virus, or other microorganism that can cause disease in humans, animals and plants.
You can get sick if you touch your nose, eyes, or mouth after you have touched something contaminated by a virus, bacteria or an allergen such as a cellphone, countertop, hand rail or doorknob. Viruses and bacteria “Pathogens” can live on those objects for up to 2 days.Our experience is that contamination come in many forms -from bodily fluids whether from the mouth (airborne) or surface contamination by touching those surfaces. Pathogens makes a residence or non-residential such as a corporate facility/industrial facility/warehouse “indoor environments” breeding grounds for sicknesses to humans, animals and plants. Pathogens are transported in many ways to an indoor environment. By shoes, touch and in the air. Pathogens attach themselves to floating matter in the air “clusters” Pathogenic bacteria form on frequently touched surfaces such as doorknobs, tables, cell phones, keys, and soles of shoes where many pathogens form. There are many different forms of pathogenic microbe contamination in the air or on hard surfaces. Surfaces can have infective microorganisms and the air can have undesired chemicals as well as allergens that may cause discomfort. Pollutants in indoor environments come from many different sources. Many pesticides and other chemicals that break down relatively quickly outdoors are much more persistent and long-lasting indoors, where they are less exposed to natural elements such as sunlight.
