Spartan Chemical Offers New Healthcare Wipe - Kills 99.99% of Common bacteria in 60 seconds
Spartan Chemical Company, Inc., a recognized leader in the formulation and manufacture of sustainable cleaning and sanitation solutions for the industrial and institutional (I&I) market, announced today the availability of Profect™ Healthcare Disinfecting Wipes.
The I&I wipes market segment is nearing $2 billion in annual sales with the highest growth rate of any category in this industry at 4.3% CAGR. Much of this growth is largely fueled by healthcare applications, which represent 30 percent of sales.
Heathcare facilities are constantly battling costs associated with HAIs (healthcare associated infections). In fact, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 5 percent of all hospital admissions result in a healthcare-associated infection, culminating in approximately 722,000 infections and $28–33 billion in costs.
Proper cleaning and disinfection are key in preventing the spread of HAIs. Three important components of a cleaning and disinfecting program are:
1. Clean/disinfect high-touch surfaces throughout the day.
2. Ensure sufficient dwell time and broad range efficacy.
3. Eliminate cross contamination between high touch surfaces during cleaning process.
“Hard surface wipes are an important part of the infection prevention process in healthcare facilities because they significantly reduce the chance for cross contamination,” said John Swigart, president, Spartan Chemical Company. “Our Profect wipes kill 25 of the most common pathogens in 1 minute making them especially effective for environmental services staff.”
Profect Healthcare Disinfecting Wipes provide bactericidal, tuberculocidal, fungicidal and viricidal efficacy for critical care areas in health care facilities. The convenient, yet effective wipe provides maximum cleaning with minimum effort and is proven to kill 99.99% of common bacteria in 60 seconds. The disposable wipe cleans, disinfects and deodorizes hard non-porous surfaces where control of cross-contamination is required.
Profect Healthcare Disinfecting Wipes are available now through Spartan’s select distributor network. For more information or to find a distributor near you, visit www.spartanchemical.com.
