Reusable vs. Disposable: Which Is Best for Our Health Crisis?

While disposable equipment is available for keeping facilities free of viruses including coronavirus, CDC guidelines do allow for the use of certain reusable equipment, as long as it’s cleaned and disinfected according to their guidelines. This can result in significant cost savings.

Cleaning Equipment

There are several options when it comes to reusable cleaning equipment. Hands-free systems allow for cleaning without physical contact with infected surfaces. Sterile flat mop heads ensure that surfaces can be disinfected in a single step.


Those working in medical facilities and cleanrooms use goggles as part of their PPE programs. Reusable goggles allow these locations to keep staff safe while providing the ability to spend less in an uncertain economy.


Reusable cleanroom garments like coveralls, hoods, and shoe covers resist bacteria and help to reduce contaminant spread. They’re constructed with high density fabric to ensure long-term durability and ease of cleaning.

Choosing reusable items ensure availability when supply chains are unreliable. Among the benefits of reusable garment and equipment rental programs is the assurance of cleaned and properly disinfected items.
