With around 200,000 healthcare
associated infections in Australian
healthcare facilities each year,
prevention and control of infection is a
top priority for hospital and healthcare
facilities, shares American manufacturer
and distributor Rubbermaid.
To stop the chain of infection and
contamination in a facility, the company
has developed a microfibre product that
has been independently tested to remove
99.9 per cent of microbes, including C. diff from surfaces without the aid of chemicals.
“Hygen disposable microfibre offers optimal infection prevention, superior cleaning
performance and improved productivity,” explained the company.
“The split blended fibres allow for dust and dirt to be picked up easily while effectively
removing microbes from surfaces, eliminating the food sources for live pathogens and
therefore, significantly reducing the risk of future outbreaks.”
The product’s microbe removing technology is complimented with built-in zig-zag scrubbers
that are designed to remove dirt without streaking or smearing to leave a visibly cleaner
“The environment plays a critical role in transmitting infections and microbial pathogens
have the ability to survive on surfaces for extensive periods of time if they are not removed,”
shared the company.
“The use of Rubbermaid’s Hygen disposable microfibre provides a solution for any facility
to help protect against an outbreak of disease.”
