EarthSafe has further enhanced its end-to-end infection prevention solution with the addition of the EvaClean Dry Wipes System.
Powered by PUR•ONE, a broad-spectrum chemistry that works for everything from daily cleaning to floor disinfection, EvaClean disposable environmental surface wipes eliminate the potential for cross-contamination that woven wipes can cause. In addition, many facilities use quaternary ammonium chloride ("quats"). When applied with cotton or microfiber cloths that contain natural fiber textiles, “quat binding” occurs and the cleaning solution adheres to the cloth, rather than the surface. Oftentimes, cleaning staff aren’t even aware surfaces have not been fully disinfected.
The EvaClean Dry Wipes System is designed for use with PUR•ONE cleaner and disinfectant. This U.S. Environmental Protection Agency-registered product has over 50 kill claims, including Clostridioides difficile, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, and, of course, emerging pathogens like coronavirus. PUR•ONE was also the first chemical with a registered kill claim against bacteria present in biofilm, a dangerous concern, particularly in healthcare settings. In keeping with its reputation for healthier approaches to disinfection, EarthSafe only uses sodium dichloroisocyanurate-based chemistries in the EvaClean system, which create hypochlorous acid when mixed with tap water, are pH neutral and safer for surfaces, as well as for housekeeping personnel. Moreover, PUR•ONE is biodegradable and eco-friendly.
PUR•ONE comes in sporicidal tablet form, which not only provides more accurate dilution but the compact packaging uses less plastic and takes less fuel to transport, which lowers shipping costs nearly 90 percent. It also requires less storage space and remains shelf stable for three years in closed containers. The new EvaClean wipes are available in bucket starter kits, and the buckets can be reused with dry wipes refill packs, thus reducing waste.
Initial results from pilot studies currently under way at major hospitals show the EvaClean disposable wipes system offers significant cost savings of approximately 37 percent over microfiber programs, and infection prevention teams are already seeing measurable process and safety improvements.
