MRSA has been found to be colonizing people’s homes.

In a recent article on Salon.com titled “Antibiotic-resistant Superbug MRSA is Now Colonizing People’s Homes,” the author notes that MRSA is not as easily avoidable as once thought, because it’s now found in homes. MRSA is a strain of staph bacteria that is antibiotic-resistant, and, in turn, can be very difficult to treat in patients.

MRSA is spread by coming in contact with a person who has it on their skin, or with an object that has MRSA on it. Oftentimes MRSA is mistaken by people for a spider bite: one of the first signs of infection is a red, painful, and swollen area on the skin.

Because MRSA can be so difficult to treat, it’s best to take all the steps possible to avoid acquiring it in the first place. Good hygiene is the best defense against MRSA. Kleritec’s products follow CDC guidelines for protecting against MRSA, H1N1, and other antibiotic-resistant superbugs. This makes it much easier for schools, workplaces, and gyms to follow proper protocol and ensure that they are doing all they can to prevent to the spread of superbugs.

In addition to outside the home, many of Kleritec’s products also work great inside the household, to mitigate the role homes are now found to play in the hosting and transmission of MRSA. Keeping homes clean can go a long way to prevent the spread of superbugs from the home into the workplace.

“What we are learning is that MRSA lives on the skin, and is being carried from residences to shared areas, such as schools, workplaces, and gyms,” states the Kleritec Regulation and Compliance Team. “We proudly carry the Medistaph line of products, which are specifically engineered to protect against MRSA and other antibiotic-resistant superbugs, both on surfaces and on the skin.”
