With the state of Missouri hard hit with over 60 flu outbreaks and over 10 flu-related school closures, local business takes steps to protect community

ST. LOUIS, March 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- 4M Building Solutions is excited to announce our latest investment in our commitment to providing first-class quality services to customers and safeguarding clients' facilities from harmful germs. The purchase of the Clorox® Total 360® System adds an additional layer of surface protection and creates an even safer environment for clients, helping to eliminate bacteria, viruses, and pathogens that can cause infections like Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and fast-spreading stomach bugs like norovirus.

The state of Missouri faced an aggressive flu season this year, with 66 outbreaks of influenza and 14 influenza-associated school closures as of February 18th, 2018.1 The impact of these outbreaks and closures weigh heavily on businesses and schools, so much so that productivity losses linked to absenteeism actually cost an average of $225.8 billion each year.2 The illness-causing viruses and bacteria that cause these outbreaks can survive on surfaces from days to months, making cleaning and disinfecting surfaces a critical first step in defending clients' facilities – from athletic and educational facilities to schools, commercial real estate, distribution centers and more.
