Environmental Cleaning in Healthcare Facilities for Infection Control

Healthcare facilities have a responsibility to maintain a high level of hygiene. Not just because they need to create a nice, clean living environment for their patients or residents, but because infection control is a legal requirement, dictated by the health and social care act of 2008. It is also absolutely essential to the wellbeing of those in your care. If uncontrolled, harmful bacteria could cause serious illness and have a detrimental effect on vulnerable people.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is a regulatory body that will inspect care homes, hospitals, clinics, dental practices and anything related to care across the country. Part of what they do is evaluate the hygiene of the premises, providing cleanliness ratings to ensure a certain standard is met. The challenge for staff is finding non-toxic cleaning products that are unharmful to patients or residents, cost-effective and powerful enough to meet CQC standards whilst effectively reducing the risk of infection.

Your powerful cleaning solution…

Purozo is the UK’s exclusive distributor of Tersano’s revolutionary Stabilised Aqueous Ozone (SAO™) cleaning products to care homes. We also supply to various other clients within the healthcare industry. Tersano products use cutting-edge SAO™ cleaning technology to provide an entirely natural, non-toxic and chemical free solution. They can kill 99.999% of harmful bacteria and viruses. This is even more effective than bleach. Even better, because SAO™ products are entirely natural, you don’t have to worry about care home residents, patients or staff being around toxic chemicals. It is an entirely safe and chemical-free solution that is powerful for preventing infection.

How Purozo’s healthcare cleaning solutions work…

Stabilised Aqueous Ozone has been used as a highly effective cleaning solution for over 100 years. It works by taking Oxygen from the air and infiltrating it with an electrical volt, turning the O2 into O3. The O3 is then infused with normal tap water changing the minerals in the water to create Stabilised Aqueous Ozone. Once stabilised, the aqueous ozone will cling to germs, harmful bacteria, dirt and grime, killing 99.999% of all harmful contaminants. It can stay stabilised for up to 24 hours, giving you plenty of time to clean entire premises with just one batch. After the 24 hours is up, it will simply return to its natural form. Because the technique uses just air, water and the clever Lotus Pro unit, it is completely natural, eliminating the need for chemicals.

How SAO™ products help with healthcare cleaning & infection control

The SAO™ products supplied by Purozo are able to kill harmful bacteria, viruses and foodborne pathogens such as E. coli, Salmonella and MRSA. This helps staff to gain control of infection by eliminating harmful bacteria, significantly reducing the risk of a breakout. It also eliminates the need for patients and residents to be exposed to chemicals, which have been known to cause negative respiratory effects.

The benefits of SAO products for infection prevention and control

Aside from the wellbeing of those in your care, there are also many additional benefits to switching to SAO™ cleaning products for your healthcare facility.
