Disposable Surface Disinfection Wipes Kill Emerging Pathogens

EarthSafe, considered a leading authority in healthier disinfection, 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.

EvaCleanPowered 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. When applied with cotton or microfiber cloths that contain natural fiber textiles, quaternary ammonium chloride binding occurs and the cleaning solution adheres to the cloth, rather than the surface.

Steve Wilson, chief executive officer of EarthSafe, said, “We’re very excited to offer a safer, more effective environmental surface disinfectant wipes solution to facilities across all industries. The program perfectly complements our infection prevention line.”

The EvaClean Dry Wipes System is designed for use with PUR•ONE cleaner and disinfectant. This U.S. Environmental Protection Agency registered product has over 50 kill claims, including Clostridium difficile, 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 health care settings.

PUR•ONE is biodegradable and eco-friendly.

Energy-efficient Product Line Kills Airborne Pathogens, Restores Public Confidence

UV Health Group, a U.S.-based designer and manufacturer of antimicrobial, energy-efficient UV products, has launched its SafeAirUV™ System, a portfolio of UV-C LED commercial products that actively circulate air and eradicate all airborne pathogens, including SARS-CoV-2, while people are safely in the room.

ConfidenceSafeAirUV™ System has been integrated into two product lines, Confidence™ LED Lighting and Assurance™ SafeAirUV fixtures. Confidence™ LED Lighting offers state-of-the-art LED downlighting with virus-killing capabilities and can be installed in drop ceilings in minutes. The Assurance™ SafeAirUV fixtures provide the same virus-killing capabilities and can be mounted or hung from the ceiling.

Unlike other products that have been recently released into the market using hazardous UV-C mercury bulbs, SafeAirUV™ products are built with UV-C LEDs that are sealed in a chamber to ensure that no human is exposed to any UV-C light, offering a safer, more cost-effective and environmentally sound solution for commercial buildings, schools, senior living facilities, and health care locations.

Rigorously tested by the University of Missouri Laboratory for Infectious Disease Research, the SafeAirUV™

System is proven to kill 99.9996 percent of aerosolized SARS-CoV-2 viruses.
