Urinary incontinence affects 77% of aged care residents. Dealing with this is an ongoing, difficult and expensive challenge for aged care facilities management.
Not only do urine odours and stains cause embarrassment and distress to residents, they can also affect the morale of families, staff, visitors and prospective clientele; and can cause the wear and tear of aged care facility fixtures and furnishings.
Our professional grade all-in-one urine stain and odour remover will help you to manage this ongoing issue for everyone's benefit.
Infection control for a safer environment
When exposed to micro-organisms found in air, on skin and other exposed surfaces, urine can become a breeding ground for harmful pathogens.
Residential aged care facilities usually use a range of incontinence products to address the day-to-day management of this issue, but accidents happen. Urine can be found on many surfaces such as bedding, mattresses, carpets, flooring, upholstery, wheelchairs and other areas commonly touched by patients, staff & visitors.
Regular detergents are ineffective
Whilst nursing home cleaning staff would mop, vacuum and disinfect daily, most standard cleaning products including strong sanitising and disinfecting chemicals simply don’t remove urine stains and odours completely.
Uric acid crystals remain to damage and corrode metal surfaces such as wheelchairs and leave permanents stains and lingering odours on assets such as mattresses, couches and other furnishings. Replacement of these items can be costly but unnecessary if the right product is used.
How to remove urine in the aged care environment.
The best way to remove urine stains depends on whether the stain is new or old, if urine deposits have accumulated over time, and the nature of the surface you need to treat. For example, removing urine from a mattress isn't the same as removing it from glazed tiled floors in bathrooms.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FyTLyqbYWL4
