Aged Care

While experts agree that thorough cleaning and disinfection of healthcare surfaces and equipment is essential for reducing the risk of infections, studies suggest that only 30 to 50 percent of surfaces in Aged Care patient rooms and operating rooms are effectively disinfected* and nearly 85 percent of hospital wheelchairs are contaminated with Staphylococcus aureus or Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).**

Using patented electrostatic technology to optimize product delivery, the Clorox® Total 360® System provides an efficient, cost-effective solution to overcome this challenge and enhance environmental hygiene in a wide range of healthcare settings.

The Clorox® Total 360® System combines electrostatic technology with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-registered Clorox® disinfecting and sanitizing solutions to quickly and easily provide superior coverage in even the hardest-to-reach places.

“While improving efficiency, this technology also enhances thoroughness and efficacy by enabling facilities to reach surfaces outside the line of sight where conventional trigger sprays may miss, reducing the risk of human error and providing more complete, uniform surface coverage,” explains Katherine Velez, PhD – Senior Scientist, Clorox Professional Products Company.

“This makes the Clorox® Total 360® System an ideal solution for many large and difficult-to-clean spaces, surfaces and objects found in a variety of healthcare settings including acute care facilities, Emergency Medical Services, long-term care and assisted living, outpatient settings, rehabilitation and physical therapy facilities, and more.”
