Health Facility Hard Surfaces – Scrubber/Dryers

A More Hygienic Environment for Patients, Medical Staff and Visitors

Floor cleaning is required in healthcare to stop the spread of COVID-19 during patient treatment and recovery, while also providing reassurance of safety for staff and visitors. To properly clean areas that are exposed to the virus, it is being recommended the removal of soiling followed by disinfection.

A scrubber used with disinfectant provides a 2 in 1 clean more effective than other methods. In fact, a microbiological evaluation of hospital cleaning showed scrubbers significantly reduced microbial counts, compared with mop / vacuum, and spray clean, and produced an affect that persisted for at least a week.

HEPA Specialty Vacuums for Non-patient Areas

HEPA Filtration is the Key for Maintaining Air Quality While Cleaning Carpeted Areas

For non-patient areas such as waiting rooms, it is being recommended to perform routine environmental floor cleaning. For carpeted areas, it’s important to use a specialty vacuum with high filtration capability. A vacuum with a HEPA H13 filter captures and filters contaminants up to 0.3 micron (1 micron is 1 thousandth of a millimeter) out of the environment, with 99.95% filtration efficiency. The experts recommend daily vacuuming of carpeted areas with a HEPA filter for public areas to combat COVID-19.

HEPA Specialty Vacuums

HEPA Filtration is the Key for Maintaining Air Quality inside the workplace, offices, hospitals and healthcare facilities, pharmaceuticals and manufacturing.

Understanding How HEPA Filters Work

These days, HEPA or High Efficiency Particulate Air filters can be found in both air filtration systems and vacuum cleaners.

Its main function is to trap large particles to microscopic-sized pollutants like pollen, dust mites, pet dander, mold spores and even tobacco smoke. It does this by forcing air through a very fine mesh of randomly arranged fiberglass fibers. Once trapped inside the filter, these particles can no longer escape and go back into the return flow air.

Benefits of HEPA Filtration

  • They help improve indoor air quality – By preventing the emission of contaminants and impurities back into the air, you are guaranteed with cleaner, safer air either at home or in the office.
  • They help prevent flare ups of allergies and asthma – By eliminating smoke, mold, dust, pollen and bacteria in the air, you are ensured with an allergen-free home or office.
  • They help instill peace of mind – By eradicating the impurities and allergens in your home or office air, you feel more comfortable and secure without experiencing any breathing problems.

Hot Water High Pressure Washers

Combat COVID-19 with Powerful Outdoor Cleaning

Heat has been identified as a key factor in eliminating bacteria, germs and viruses.

In order to eliminate a coronavirus like SARS and COVID-19, temperatures need to be above 56°C at a rate of 10,000 units every 15 minutes as identified by the World Health Organization (WHO).. The higher the temperatures the quicker the elimination rates.

Benefits of Hot High-Pressure Water

  • Reduces overall cleaning time, which in turn reduces water usage, electricity consumption and labor cost.
  • Reduces and may even eliminate the need for detergents.
  • Reduces drying time after cleaning, making zones available sooner.
  • Reduces the need for high pressure levels and therefore protecting surfaces.
  • Contributes clearly to germ and bacteria reduction.

When is Floor Cleaning Required?

Routine environmental cleaning is required for short stay areas such as emergency departments, outpatient clinics and primary care assessment areas – it is recommended to clean floors daily or when they are visibly soiled.

A full terminal clean is required for in-patient areas where there has been a case of COVID-19, and assessment areas for COVID-19, where there has been gross environmental contamination or an exposure to respiratory droplets. Following the discharge or transfer of a patient, the area must be decontaminated with a cleaning and disinfectant process.

This can be done as two steps, or as a 2-in-1 clean.

A 2-step clean is a physical cleaning with detergent followed by disinfection with a Therapeutic Goods Act-listed hospital-grade disinfectant with activity against viruses (according to label/product information) or a chlorine-based product such as sodium hypochlorite (NaCIO).

A 2-in-1 clean is a physical clean using a combined detergent and TGA-listed hospital-grade disinfectant with activity against viruses (according to label/product information) or a chlorine-based product such as sodium hypochlorite, where indicated for use.

Tips for Cleaning and Disinfecting with a Scrubber Dryer

As soil load affects the ability to sanitize an area, using a mop and bucket for the cleaning/disinfection process requires a two-step clean, as well as several changes to water in the bucket as it accumulates dirt and germs.

However, a scrubber dryer holds clean and soiled water in separate areas, enabling a 2-in-1 continuous clean, while ensuring germs are not spread.

The scrubber dryer will clean and sanitize at the same time using detergent and disinfectant. To ensure that the disinfectant is on the floor surface for the full 10 minutes, it is recommended that a double-scrub is conducted. The first pass of a double-scrub is to lift surface dirt and lay down the disinfectant.

The second pass is to provide a second scrub, vacuum up the detergent / disinfectant solution, and dry the area so it is immediately able to be used.
