EvaClean Looks to Disrupt Infection Prevention Systems

Print Article Contributed by BSM Staff

BRAINTREE, MA -- More than 11 million people have come down with the flu this season, according to the CDC, with flu activity expected to remain elevated for weeks, and 36 states reporting widespread flu activity.

With deadly viruses and antibiotic-resistant infections on the rise, and current disinfection tools and equipment only reaching about 25 percent of room surfaces, it may be time for a new disruptive technology, say the developers of EvaClean , a next-generation infection control solution.

Today, we need a system based on innovative, practical technology, a solution that is cost-efficient, easy-to-use, and able to deliver superior performance for verifiable, predictable, and repeatable results.

Seeing that infection control solutions were not evolving to meet the needs of today’s companies and public institutions, EarthSafe’s founders set out to develop EvaClean, an Infection Control system that is as practical as it is revolutionary.

“The industry can do better,” says the company.

EarthSafe is a personal care brand with values rooted in consciousness, sustainability and community.

In developing the EvaClean system, it insisted that, in addition to being free of harsh chemicals that harm human health and the environment, it must be as effective and cost-efficient as traditional cleaning solutions, while enabling more consistent use and better performance. The result is an infection control system that is a clear choice for businesses large and small, and that is helping to make the world a safer, healthier place for all.

EvaClean features the Protexus cordless electrostatic sprayer, which emits a magnetically charged spray so powerful that the droplets can reverse direction and coat in 360° for 100 percent coverage of all curved, hidden, and hard-to-reach surfaces that would typically be missed by conventional spraying or misting equipment.

It is proven to deliver up to three times greater coverage of facility surface areas than traditional disinfecting and sanitizing methods, while reducing time and labor costs by 50 percent or more.

The system uses EarthSafe’s PURTABS, a sustainable, solid tablet form of Sodium Triclosene, NaDCC, which dissolves readily in water to become a powerful hypochlorous acid (HOCL) that is versatile enough, depending on concentration, to use as a food surface sanitizer and a hospital grade disinfectant.

This EPA-registered sanitizer/disinfectant, when coupled with green cleaning formulations and the right application technology, literally SOLVES the time constraints and process problems of daily cleaning and sanitizing/disinfection. PURTABS is changing the janitorial/custodial industry for the better.

“We want to empower workers.”

Traditional sanitizer/disinfection approaches like chlorine bleach and quarternary ammonium compounds, or quats, are toxic to humans, corrosive to materials and harm the environment they are released to. NaDCC tablets that produce hypochlorous acid (HOCL) when added to water are the less toxic alternatives to chlorine bleach & quats.

Because chlorine bleach is a hypochlorite (-OCL) and is highly reactive, impure, unstable and sensitive to light and temperature. Quats & chlorine bleach exacerbate or cause asthma.

Chlorine bleach concentrate begins to degrade from the moment it’s manufactured and, within a month, easily loses a third or more of its activity. When diluted bleach is effective for only hours.

PURTABS is designed to be the most convenient and cost effective option  to ship, store and apply a less toxic, more potent disinfection solution. It provides immediate infection control in outbreak situations and works in classrooms, hallways, gyms, auditoriums, school buses, dormitories, lecture halls, hospitals and more.

In addition, bleach and quats are highly corrosive to metals and other surfaces, extremely toxic to the environment, and unsafe for humans to handle or inhale its fumes.

EvaClean offers increased compliance via a standardized protocol and simplicity, which drives compliance, and compliance drives results.
