STEAM SANITATION OF HOSPITALS AND HEALTHCARE STRUCTURES
As a specialist Disinfection and Sanitation company, we find the need for an economical, cost-effective and eco-friendly method of sanitation. In hospitals and healthcare facilities and areas where cleaning is of the utmost importance, dry steam offers a viable and green solution and allows us to achieve the standards required in healthcare structures and hospitals.
Versatility and efficiency of steam are fundamentals, mostly in environments where each area requires a specific cleaning technique.
We use steam cleaning and disinfection methods for health care facilities as it offers a cleaning solution that does not require chemicals and kills more than 99% of viruses, germs, bacteria and other pathogens. Steam cleaning is most suitable for cleaning hospitals, surgeries, veterinary clinics, retirement homes and especially frail-care facilities.
Utilising it alongside traditional cleaning techniques, steam cleaning can reach where no other physical applications can. The use of steam as a disinfection and sanitation agent is absolutely versatile and totally non-toxic in sensitive environments like hospitals and we utilise it for a great
variety of applications, such as:
• Cleaning of wheelchairs and rehabilitation devices
• Cleaning of public areas such as corridors, waiting rooms and their floors
• Laboratories, patient’s rooms and treatment areas
• Elimination of viruses, bacteria and other live organisms that may cause harm
• Disinfection and sanitation of operating theatres
• Mould and fungi removal
• Cleaning of medical devices
• Cleaning of kitchens, canteens and food processing areas
• Disinfection and sanitation of ducts, vents and cooling systems
ULTRA-LOW VOLUME AND THERMAL ANTIMICROBIAL FOGGING
Germs, bacteria, viruses and fungi exist both where people, as well as animals, coexist, especially in restricted space and in healthcare and food production facilities. Human Healthcare uses disinfection with Thermal fog generators and ULV Aerosol generators, which are a key element to our successful hygiene management approach. The highly concentrated fogging of disinfection solutions ensures an even distribution of the solution on all surfaces, reaching even the smallest cracks and corners which are not accessible to your general janitorial service provider and staff.
Our disinfection solutions are of the highest standard and are manufactured in ISO certified manufacturing facilities, are SABS certified and are suitable for medical facility disinfection and for food processing facilities. The disinfection solution dual-action settles on all surfaces and remains airborne for a sufficient time, allowing for effective surface and ambient air disinfection. The low water consumption per volume wets the surfaces but inhibits run-off, so the solution can maintain sufficient contact time and maximise efficacy
ULTRAVIOLET GERMICIDAL IRRADIATION
One of the professional disinfection methods we employ is the use of equipment that emits shortwave Ultraviolet-C (UV-C) light to kill or inactivate microorganisms by destroying nucleic acids and disrupting their DNA, leaving them unable to perform vital cellular functions. UVGI is used in a variety of applications, such as food, air, and water purification.
Sterile air, for example, prevents the spread of diseases and reduces the risk of infection, both in medical facilities and in the workplace. Unlike chemical approaches to disinfection, ultraviolet light is an effective alternative to providing rapid, effective inactivation of micro-organisms, therefore, making it a very useful option for disinfection, especially in sensitive environments such as hospitals, clinics, doctors’ rooms, vets’ rooms, laboratories and even bedrooms and in any areas where there are high volumes of human traffic.
Once we have assessed the risks of infection and pathogenic probability in your particular environment, the most effective and cost-effective method of disinfection and sanitation can be recommended. Most times we employ several methods in combination.
AMBULANCE-GRADE INFECTION CONTROL AND VEHICLE DISINFECTION
It needs to be understood that there is a difference between cleaning, sterilisation and disinfection. Cleaning involves merely removing soil from a surface. This usually includes the use of water and detergents.
Sterilisation involves destroying all microbial life on a surface and usually occurs separately after cleaning. The use of chemicals, pressurised steam, dry heat, and hydrogen peroxide gas plasma are all examples of sterilising agents used in health care.
Disinfection is the process of removing all pathogenic microorganisms from the surface, except bacterial spores. Disinfectants are further categorised as being low-level, intermediate-level, or high-level.
In the ambulance environment, we use a combined method that involves cleaning, disinfection, and sterilisation techniques. Surfaces such as countertops, cupboards, walls, floors, and ceilings within the ambulance are cleaned and disinfected with intermediate-level disinfectants (sufficient concentrations and contact time disinfect surfaces of infections such as the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and Hepatitis B).
Patient contact items such as laryngoscopes, stethoscopes, mattresses, blood pressure cuffs, splints, scoop stretchers, defibrillation paddles, spider harnesses, and head blocks are cleaned and disinfected with high-level disinfectants.
In addition to cleaning and disinfection, certain items such as laryngoscope blade and handles are usually fully sterilised using methods such as pressurised steam and ultraviolet irradiation (UV) methods are also used to disinfect the interior air and surfaces of ambulances and cloths and mops used for cleaning vehicles and equipment are regularly disinfected and replaced.
So, if it's good enough for emergency vehicles on the frontlines, it's good enough for you!
