Charles P. Gerba is an American microbiologist. He currently is a professor at the University of Arizona. Dr. Gerba serves as a Spokesperson for Coverall Health-Based Cleaning System.


Gerba is best known for work in environmental germ theory in the household. His surveys produced scientific backing for two useful bits of everyday advice; in kitchens, a reused washcloth is likely to be the most infectious and germ-carrying object in a house. In the bathroom, a flushed toilet with the seat up will spray germs into the air and disperse them throughout a room through a toilet plume.[1]

Dr. Gerba is a Spokesperson for Coverall Health-Based Cleaning System. This collaborative relationship focuses on building public awareness about germs, the role they play in business environments and effective cleaning methods for infection control.[2]
