DRY FUSION BACTOSHIELD OV 5LTR
The Dry Fusion process is the ideal mechanism to apply a permanent anti-microbial and bacteriostatic treatment to carpet fibres. The fact that the Dry Fusion process cleans every fibre and removes food spill residues, dust, dirt, human and pet skin and hair residues that support bacterial growth would indicate that an anti-microbial agent is not required. But what about in between cleaning, when these residues are left in the carpet, particularly in damp or humid climates or when you have 'problem' spills?
Bacteria and fungal spores can grow out of control in this situation. Vacuuming does not remove adhesive bacterial and fungal spores. You are left with the potential for infection and the transfer of fungal diseases via bare foot traffic.
WHO NEEDS BACTOSHIELD?
Predominantly carpeted hospitals, nursing homes, nursery schools, sports clubs, gymnasiums, swimming clubs are prime targets for attention to carpet hygiene. Risk management strategies these companies have against public liability must include a preventative measure against cross infection and fungal disease transfer. Perspiration odours imbedded in the carpet just worsen the problem! The risk in this area is extreme - BACTOSHIELD is the answer.
KINDERGARTENS, DAY CARE CENTRES AND SCHOOLS
With carpet being the No 1 surface choice in these establishments, a protective measure,if available at very little extra cost to the regular carpet cleaning price would be a natural decision. Children, being children, mean that cuts and scratches, can happen. Even falling on the carpet can remove skin and expose the child to an infection risk. You don't need to take this risk!
Risk is something you don't have when you have your carpet cleaning completed with the Dry Fusion BACTOSHIELD process, because we guarantee your satisfaction.
HOSPITALS AND NURSING HOMES
Hospitals and nursing homes are other environments that require extra elements of safety. In Hospitals it's the post and pre-operative wards or hotel units. Post and pre-natal clinics and wards must also come under scrutiny.
Aged care and nursing homes have infection-susceptible patients, many with incontinence problems that can create, and usually does create, large odour problems. Not only will BACTOSHIELD clean carpet; it instantly removes the odour from bacterially active urine and faecal deposits. It keeps the bacteria and mildew created smells away for good.
HOMES WITH SMALL CHILDREN
Indeed small toddlers use their mouths to taste test just about everything they touch. Has their dummy or toy been in contact with the carpet? Is the carpet safe? Dry Fusion BACTOSHIELD reduces children's exposure to danger.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
A unique chemical reaction takes place once BACTOSHIELD is applied to the carpet. When it is diluted 1 to 4 with water the solution becomes turbid. This turbidity is in fact the active ingredient, TRICLOSAN, showing itself as submicron particles in solution. These particles are so small that thousands could fit on the head of a pin.
As the carpet is being cleaned - the water and glycol solvents evaporate and, as the carpet dries, these particles become an insoluble crystal and evenly disperse throughout the fluorocarbon film that is formed on every fibre in the carpet.
These minute, hard crystal shaped particles of anti-microbial act in the same way that blue metal acts in a concrete structure. They actually reinforce the strength and wearability of the fluorocarbon film. It lasts longer.
Because of its even dispersion, TRICLOSAN provides permanent protection and a halo of antimicrobial activity around each fibre. This can be seen in illustration A. This film is extremely difficult to wear away and because it is insoluble to all but the strongest of solvents, cleaning and spotting with UNBELIEVABLE as a maintainer will not remove the antimicrobial layer.
HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT LAST?
Because dried BACTOSHIELD films repel the adhesion of soilage and stains, water or a gentle neutral pH spotter like UNBELIEVABLE is all that is necessary to remove spills as well as oily stains.
Our recommendation however, is to develop a maintenance programme to maintain good appearance as well as remove any risk. Most health care and health club programmes must ensure that body fluids (perspiration and body fats) are removed frequently. BACTOSHIELD is not a miracle product.
