These do not present the same degree of infectious risk.

The maintenance of a room in an Aged care facility.
The maintenance of a room in a nursing home represents an important hygiene issue. Indeed, the epidemic risk is permanent where the residents live in communities. They sometimes happen to them to stay in hospital and this increases the risk of epidemic development. External visits also represent an additional risk, especially during periods of feverishness in the population. Thus, the staff must master maintenance techniques and bio-cleaning and ensure perfect disinfection of their environment.
