Healthcare : Care Homes

Aqualution® Salvesan is fast, safe, and kills 99% of all known germs. In a comparative study in the Journal of Hospital Infection, it significantly outperformed standard disinfectant in a residential care home setting.

Traditional disinfectants need between 2 and 10 minutes to work effectively, but in busy care homes, this just isn’t realistic. Usually, they are applied for just a few seconds, then wiped off. This means some micro-organisms can survive.

As this study reveals, traditional disinfectants can actually increase bacteria levels, possibly because of mechanical contamination through the use of cloths.

The Aqualution® hypochlorous acid product Salvesan™ kills harmful germs in under a minute, significantly reducing the likelihood of contamination. It acts effectively against a wide range of germs, viruses and spores including influenzas, E-coli, C-difficile, MRSA and Norovirus, and is EU approved.

Salvesan™ outperforms traditional disinfectants in a number of areas:

  • effective – kills 99.99% of germs
  • fast – kills all known pathogens in under 1 minute
  • safe to use, non-toxic
  • environmentally friendly
  • biodegradable
