In the healthcare sector, disinfectants are essential and indispensable. Objects, surfaces and surgical instruments should not become sources of contamination by micro-organisms. Elimination is the key to keep the premises as clean as possible. Sources of contamination can take many forms and can only be prevented by eliminating as many sources of contamination as possible. Clean and hygienic surroundings provide a proper basis for your work.
Chemical disinfection of surfaces
You deal daily with chemical disinfection of surfaces and you may sometimes wonder if traditional products are effective enough, what harmful side effects their use can have and what it means for your safety. The use of alcohol as a disinfectant is relatively safe when it is just used for smaller surfaces and in small doses. Intoxicating and highly inflammable alcohol fumes can cause health and safety risks. Therefore, bigger surfaces are usually cleaned with chlorine compounds. However, toxic chlorine gases and increased corrosivity are some of the disadvantages of using chlorine compounds. It is possible to save costs by safeguarding people and preventing material corrosion. And we also have a responsibility towards the environment. This is the major incentive for the development of the Tevan Panox® product family. Environmentally-friendly alternatives like hydrogen peroxide and peracetic acid are better for the environment, fast-acting and do not leave a residue. After processing, they only produce water and oxygen as a by-product.
To completely disinfect an area usually requires a rather labor-intensive approach. First, the area needs to be thoroughly cleaned and, subsequently, the same deployment of staff is needed to disinfect the area. It is a challenge to achieve measurable and perfect disinfection results, and it is also very expensive due to the inefficient deployment of man-hours. The “fogging” method has been developed to achieve perfectly disinfected premises while deploying less staff. It results in perfectly disinfected premises while deploying less staff, thus achieving substantial cost savings. Would you like to find out exactly how it works? Please don’t hesitate to request a product demonstration on site. You will find out everything about this efficient method and observe the measurable results yourself.
