EarthSafe launches EvaClean Disposable Surface Disinfection Wipes
Cruise Ship Hospitality Expo exhibitor EarthSafe is introducing a new product – EvaClean disposable environmental surface wipes. The wipes are for use with PUR•ONE, EarthSafe’s safe multi-purpose cleaner and disinfectant which is powerful enough to kill biofilm bacteria, COVID-19 and other emerging pathogens. Read about the new product in the press release below…
Braintree, MA – May 2021 – EarthSafe is considered a leading authority on healthier disinfection who pioneered the use of safer chemistries and advanced electrostatic sprayer technologies. Now, the company 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 United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) registered product has over 50 kill claims, including Clostridiodes difficille (C. diff), MRSA and, of course, emerging pathogens like Covid-19. 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 NaDCC-based chemistries in the EvaClean system, which create hypochlorous acid (HOCl) 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.
