Infection control is crucial to a risk-free, strong and effective healthcare system. Healthcare facilities adopt hygiene standards and infection control policies to minimise the risk of infection, but infections such as MRSA & VRSA are becoming more rampant in the Australian hospital and healthcare system.
Australian Healthcare Guidelines specify that all furnishings and fixtures, soft and hard floors must be free of stains, spillages and have no odour that is distasteful or unpleasant. Urine odours and stains not only smell offensive but are often difficult to remove completely.
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
Hospital and healthcare environments provide ideal breeding grounds for micro-organisms. Bodily fluids (including urine) can be found on many surfaces such bedding, mattresses, carpets, flooring, upholstery, wheelchairs and other areas commonly touched by patients, staff and visitors.
Urine is essentially sterile but once exposed to micro-organisms found in air, on skin and other exposed surfaces can become a breeding ground for harmful pathogens.
Regular detergents are ineffective
Most standard cleaning products including strong sanitising and disinfecting chemicals simply don’t remove urine stains and odours completely.
Consequently, 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, chairs and other furnishings. Replacement of these items can be costly but unnecessary if the right product is used.
How to remove urine in healthcare
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
