Project Description



  • MRSA is a type of staph (Staphylococcus aureus) infection. Staph is a common bacterium found on the skin of many healthy individuals. MRSA (or Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus) has developed a resistance to typical antibiotic treatments, however can be treated by your health provider with proper treatment and specialty antibiobics.
  • There are two types of MRSA. HA-MRSA is hospital acquired MRSA, occurring most frequently among persons in hospitals and healthcare facilities who have weakened immune systems. The other type is community acquired, or CA-MRSA.
  • CA-MRSA is spread from person to person by contact. That’s why sports related transmission of MRSA is so common. It’s important for athletes in particular to practice good hygiene, cover open cuts or scrapes, and not share equipment.
  • CA-MRSA can also be spread by contacting a surface that harbors the MRSA bacteria.


The HEITS MRSA INTENSIVE package is offered to facilities concerned about an outbreak of MRSA. It incorporates the HEITS MRSA Prevention Package (see below) with an intensive cleaning specific to pinpointing and treating MRSA transfer points. This package includes the disinfecting of every surface of concern, such as desktops, chairs, file cabinets, all locker surfaces, sports equipment, walls, etc.

The MRSA INTENSIVE service uses a two-step cleaning and disinfecting process. The first step assures the surfaces are completely free of soil and organic material. HEITS uses an environmentally preferred, hydrogen peroxide-based cleaner that leaves surfaces clean and ready for disinfection. The second step uses a neutral pH, quaternary-based, broad spectrum disinfectant.


This package is designed as a regular maintenance package for health clubs and fitness gyms that have been following a regular maintenance schedule with surfaces that are not heavily soiled. Under these conditions, HEITS is able to use a one-step disinfecting procedure.

The product is a cleaner / disinfectant recognized by the EPA to be an effective disinfectant when used on mildly soiled surfaces. This quaternary-based, hospital-type broad spectrum disinfectant can be used on any surface that are maintained on a daily basis. Our trained crews assure full dwell time for maximum killing performance.
