Boot sanitizing has taken on a new light as workplaces open again to a post-COVID 19 era. For workers in industries such as agriculture, food processing, packaging plants, and others that require strict sanitation, navigating this new normal can be daunting. But most people don’t know infectious contaminants can also be spread by your boots. And that we could learn a thing or two about how to prevent it from spreading, by those professions that have dealt with sanitizing boots for years – the biosecurity industry.
A recent Wall Street Journal article points out the strict sanitization techniques that farmers – in this case, a pig farmer – practice daily. When cross-contamination can result in spreading epidemic illness among our global meat supply, hyper-hygienic methods are the norm.

Sanitizer won’t splash out, overflow or make a wet and potentially dangerous mess on your floor. Boot sanitizing has never been easier – simple to use and set up:
Use with a concentrated ammonia-based quaternary disinfectant or similar, diluted to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Once the soaker sponge insert is completely charged, step slowly in by lifting one foot at a time to maintain balance until standing in the center. Shift weight form side to side and back and forth to completely coat boot soles. This ensures boots are thoroughly disinfected. Step carefully out of the boot sanitizing mat system to prevent slipping.
