Custodial Partners Stresses Importance of Wearing Sunscreen

Baz Luhrmann was right when he released his 1999 hit “Everybody’s Free (To Wear Sunscreen)” spoken song about the importance of wearing sunscreen (among other life lessons). Wearing sunscreen is as important as ever in the fight against skin cancer and premature aging, and it’s especially important for those in the custodial industry.

For those who put in long hours outside maintaining properties, sunscreen application should be an added daily ritual similar in importance to that of brushing one’s teeth. When we talk about the sun’s UV rays causing damage to our skin, what’s really happening on a microscopic level is that each skin cell’s DNA is being permanently damaged. Sometimes the cells with the damaged DNA successfully replicate and can eventually become harmful to our health. In this instance, cancerous growths can occur.

It’s estimated that 87,110 new cases of Melanoma — the most aggressive form of skin cancer — will be diagnosed in the year 2017, 9,730 of whom will ultimately die of the disease.

As a company whose main concern is the safety of your custodial staff, we urge commercial businesses to purchase sun protection for your employees who are exposed to the sun for more than 15 minutes every day. Landscaping and exterior cleaning jobs are performed on a more regular basis during the summer months, which means an increased risk of severe sunburns. Deb skin care products are an effective solution to ensuring that your janitorial staff is protected throughout the day while on the job.
