Press highlights remarks about the need for greater hygiene and cleanliness in nursing homes. At the health centers remains the same, due to the vulnerability of the patients, as ensuring hygiene in homes and hospitals is of vital importance to health as well.
Until now, we learn as a sanitary barrier to use industrial washing machines with 2 doors or with a barrier (a door for loading dirty clothes and the second one for extracting the already clean clothes) compliances to eliminate possible cross-contamination.
The coronavirus pandemic has once again highlighted the capacity of hospitals and nursing homes to guarantee hygiene and textile protection by preventing the spread of microorganisms and related infections. Or what we know as cross-contamination.
Three issues have been addressed so far:
1/ Avoid contact between clean and dirty clothes, which is essential in hospitals, clinics and nursing homes specially for long-stay patients; in these cases, cleaning in industrial washing machines is essential to PREVENT the spread of microorganisms and related infections by complying with high strict hygiene standards.
2/ Cleaning and decontamination of dirty clothes, which we find in all those companies or industrial laundries that are responsible for PPE (fire brigade, mining, chemical and laboratory, meat processing plants, etc….)
3/ Removal of contaminating particles from clothing in “clean” rooms in sectors such as pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, microelectronics, operating rooms… in other words, all those environments that need to be free of contaminants. Therefore, the clothes worn by their operators (uniforms, gowns, pajamas) require a deep washing free of particles.
HOW DOES NOB166 ACT AGAINST CROSS-CONTAMINATION?
The additive NOB166® H-Ion and ready-to-use NOB166® Protect Clothes are the only solution to the antimicrobial protection for 7 days after washing. NOB166 is the only solution on the market that guarantees complete protection against microorganisms, with a wide spectrum for all types of textiles keeping the fabric free from pathogenic microorganisms for 7 days, dry-clean and after washing even in cold water.
NOB166 H-Ion is the only additive with antimicrobial power, especially for industrial processes, suitable for industrial washing, resistant to high-temperature processes such as calendaring and drying. NOB166 H-Ion ensures the antimicrobial capacity after all processes involved on the handling in the industrial washing process.
