Protecting medical offices from C.diff
As C. Difficile (C.diff) becomes a serious problem in doctor offices, health clinics and dental offices, now is the time for a better approach to combating these threats. The normal cleaning taking place in the medical offices is not protecting the patients from C. diff. and other viruses and bacteria.
“C.difficile was responsible for almost half a million infections and was associated with approximately 29,000 deaths in 2011”, as reported in the New England Journal of Medicine.
Creating Healthy Indoor environments in medical offices should be a top priority for all those involved. Having a cleaning company take care of the day to day cleaning is important, but it is not enough. This is being proven by the increase in C. diff. cases that are showing up outside of hospitals. Employing a company that can provide sanitizing services is the next step in providing a safe place for your customers.
Bio-Sanitizing With Ozone
Sanitizing is the normal and natural duty for ozone.
Nearly 100 years ago, it was discovered that ozone is the second most powerful sterilant in the world. It is 3000 more effective than chlorine in water. Ozone is 2.5 times better than bleach as a germicide. The trouble is it cannot be bottled or sold as a commodity by chemical distributors.
Used as both a gas and liquid, ozone can clean and sanitize medical offices very efficiently.
Ozone attacks bacteria and viruses by destroying the outer membrane. There is no defense as the gas penetrates throughout the building, and the liquid ozone is used to clean all hard surfaces. Medical facilities are pleased to know that there is no residue or VOCs created by this process.
In addition to the normal cleaning, concerned organizations will treat their facilities once a month or once a quarter to reduce the growing concerns for infections.
Antimicrobial surface treatment
There is a huge need to revisit our sanitizing processes that are not working. Bleach is not the ultimate solution. It is high in VOC causing later-life health issues, and it does not provide a 24/7 kind of proactive microbial barrier that is desperately needed. Antimicrobial surface treatments are the proactive choice. If a facility waits for diseases to strike before offering a response, the cost and threat are huge.
BioZone Protectant is one of the leading antimicrobial coatings that allows quick application of an EPA approved antimicrobial surface treatment with the ability to inhibit disease for three to six months. BioZone Protectant is non-toxic, non-transferable, and non-leaching once dried. It is easily applied to soft or hard surfaces. It can be applied on smooth or porous surfaces as well. It does not require light to activate it. BioZone Protectant works 24/7 to fight pathogenic microbes even though it is a nanotechnology process that is unseen.
