There are growing concerns over the ability of conventional disinfectants such as chlorine and quaternary based products to keep up with a new generation of Multidrug-Resistant Organisms (MROs) which are resistant to traditional antibiotics and some disinfectants.
This immunity creates the problem where no matter how much cleaning and disinfecting is scheduled, it won’t actually reduce the number of instances of outbreak. This could be incorrectly presumed to be the fault of the cleaning schedules, however, more likely, the problem is with the disinfectant product.
The persistent presence of Clostridium difficile spores, MRSA, Norovirus and other MRO pathogens in residential & care homes calls for a better product to improve the efficiency of the cleaning practice and improves disinfectant processes throughout the industry.
The problem faced cannot be controlled by chlorine products, quaternary ammonium products or other low-level disinfectants due to the need for a strong oxidising action to destroy persistent pathogens and spores that can stay in the environment for weeks to months, if not correctly sanitised
Peracide is a revolutionary, clinically proven in-situ cleaner and disinfectant, with active ingredients which boast strong oxidising properties associated with peracetic acid, with a pleasant fragrance. Peracide is formulated with a unique colour activation system which alerts the user of its efficacy, it is simple to visually see if the product will work.
Peracide has excellent disinfectant properties above chlorine, Quaternary ammonium compounds and hydrogen peroxide. Peracetic acid can kill all known pathogens including spores in both ‘clean’ and ‘dirty’ conditions. It is also safe for both the user and the environment degrading into just water, vinegar and carbon dioxide.
