Gabriel Education & Training Paves the Way to Success

No one should dive into water without knowing how to swim and the perils existing beneath the surface.  The same goes for housekeeping:  Housekeepers should not dive into their work without first receiving logically-presented education and training.  As with swimming, a housekeeper must know the perilous danger that can stem from mishandling soil.

From a medical perspective, dangerous microorganisms (germs) that over-power a body’s immune system may be brought under control with the use of doctor-prescribed medication.  Once the germ count is low enough for the immune system to function normally, the medication ceases.  The germ may still be in the body, but the immune system finds the germ numbers to be manageable.

Yes, housekeeping may be challenged by the same germ, but the perspective of the germ is different.  In housekeeping, germs need to be looked upon as soil recyclers that need to be safely removed from where the soil is not wanted to where the germs can finish their recycling job—down the drain.

Trying to kill germs as part of a surface washing process is dangerous at best because disinfectant detergents are designed to leave a residue for the process of killing airborne germs that land on a pre-cleaned surface.  Because a surface usually has more soil than the germ-killing solution can handle, the solution cannot get to killing all of the targeted germs.   Therefore, resistant and stronger germs will have a field day replacing the few dead germs.  Continually repeating the disinfectant solution washing process will lead to the buildup of higher soil levels and greater ratios of more dangerous germs.
