WHO IS IT FOR

Hospitals

Over 98,000 patients die each year from infections they acquire after being admitted to a hospital or other healthcare facility. Because of their size and complexity, hospitals are difficult to properly disinfect. Typically, healthcare workers routinely work with multiple patients over a shift increasing the chances for spreading infections.

Doctors, Nurses and Physician Assistants

see multiple patients throughout their day. Not all of their patients show symptoms of an infection at the time of an office visit so it is critical that every step be taken to prevent the spread of infection, from hand washing to the routine cleaning and disinfecting of equipment, and reception and examination rooms.

Assisted Care Facilities

Care Staff travel from room to room, interacting with residents and equipment so a thorough disinfecting is critical due to the somewhat frail nature of the residents and their immune systems. Typically, housekeeping has only a short window of time to clean before new residents arrive in a room.

Schools and Universities

need to be diligent about responding to the outbreak of illness, while also responding to the pressure from parents and faculty to keep facilities germ free. The greatest risk of infection comes from surfaces touched by multiple people.

Children’s Day-Care Centres

Children in day-care have a tendency to pick up and spread any number of germs because of congregating in such close proximity and the sharing of toys, utensils and play areas. There is a legitimate fear of sending a healthy child to day-care and picking him or her up at the end of the day with a cold or worse.

Hotel Industry

Hotels are always aiming to achieve 100% occupancy – therefore, the same room will be used by numerous and varied clients in a single year. Due to this diversity, hotel rooms contain an enormous amount of bacteria and germs. It should also be added that some rooms may keep a trace of some clients (cigarettes, etc). An efficient disinfection will first ensure that the new patron finds a healthy environment, and that at the same time unpleasant smells have been eliminated.

Catering

Surfaces in contact with hands or food are major carriers of cross contamination and collect and disseminate all types of germs. The surfaces in contact with hands and food are: cutting boards, counters, refrigerators, kitchenware… In order to minimise infection risks, it is important to regularly disinfect anything in contact with food.

Gym & Fitness Centres

Gym cleanliness is vital to your members. They expect clubs to be germ-free. Showers, Floors, Locker Rooms, Restrooms and Fitness Equipment are the most common areas for being exposed to an infection due to the high-traffic and usage of these areas. This is important because some cold and flu viruses can survive on surfaces for up to 72 hours.

Work Environment

Employees work in close proximity with one another sharing space, equipment and tasks. This kind of interaction encourages person to person and surface contact to person transmission of bacteria and viruses. How many sick days can your business afford?

Veterinarians

and assistants can see many pets throughout their day potentially exposing them and their other ‘patients’ to many serious diseases. With different breeds and varieties of pets moving through the facility, the high- traffic areas like the reception area, the exam rooms and kennel areas are prime infection transfer locations.

Transportation

The rapid and continuing growth in the transportation of goods and people offers an ideal environment for the quick circulation of infectious agents and cross contamination. This can range from a private taxi ride, to the daily train/tube commute, up to the largest cruise liners, transporting many thousands of staff and guests from port to port. Efficient disinfection of any and all modes of transport helps to significantly decrease these cross contamination risks, helping to protect travellers, commuters and transportation staff alike.

Farming and Fisheries

Farms and Fisheries provide a natural habitat for bacteria to flourish. If levels are allowed to increase, an outbreak could occur, causing significant risk to the poultry, fish or livestock. This could have serious consequences for the business owner, their supply chain, and customers. Sanondaf, in both applications, will kill 99.99% of bacteria, thus ensuring this risk is minimised.
