Low Level Ozone Now Being Used to Help Protect Care Home Residents and Staff
Ozone is the most powerful disinfectant known to man and is now being used in Residential Care Homes in their fight against coronavirus.
Complex and thorough cleaning regimes have been put in place with regular deep cleans and chemical fogging being implemented to try and keep their home virus free.
While ozone has been widely used as an effective and efficient disinfectant and sanitising agent commercially to treat sewage water and prolong the life of food, for over 100 years unfortunately, very few people outside of these industries have heard of the power that ozone provides.
Ozone is one of the friendliest and cleanest ways of deactivating viruses and killing most any pathogen and is safe to use in food processing and dining areas.
Many businesses are now discovering the power of ozone and adopting the EnVirusafe ozone sanitisation units to provide an extra layer of protection for their staff and clients.
More About Ozone
Ozone is a gas molecule made up of 3 oxygen atoms with amazing disinfectant properties. It destroys the coronavirus by oxidisation, breaking down the outer protein shell of the virus, preventing it from replicating or attaching itself to host cells.
Unlike some chemicals there is no toxic residue after using ozone. Ozone that is not used in the sanitisation process reverts back to oxygen over time or if speed is required carbon can be used neutralise any remaining ozone.
Ozone treatment has also shown to be effective in sanitising PPE including N95 masks, goggles and shields without damaging the integrity of the equipment.
Ozone has been proven to destroy many viruses including the SARS
Like all strong disinfectants, liquids and gases, ozone needs to be treated with care and safety procedures should always be followed. While low dose units produce ozone that does not exceed recommended safety levels, prolonged exposure to high levels of ozone can be detrimental to health, but it is generally considered safer than chlorine and other chemicals and easier to use than chemical fogging.
As a gas, it not only is affective in sanitising the air, but it can also sanitise inaccessible and hard to reach surfaces and anything else it touches.
