Schools, Sport Centres & other Buildings

Public places and buildings that receive considerable amounts of people need a special attention to hygiene and disinfection.

Schools and kindergartens are potential sources of germs; therefore, apart from having special measures with the kids (like vaccination, washing hands often, covering coughs and sneezes), the facility needs a systematic cleaning and disinfection programme. The same applies to other public buildings, or gyms, where increasing amounts of fungi, viruses, bacteria, and the infection MRSA are found regularly. Community-associated MRSA bacterial infection is most often spread by skin-to-skin or direct contact, therefore, individuals engaging in close-contact sports are particularly at risk.

Many schools, and other facilities, use sanitizing and disinfecting products, which are also sometimes used as a general-purpose cleaner. Sanitizers are used to reduce, but not necessarily eliminate, microorganisms from the inanimate environment to levels considered safe as determined by public health codes or regulations.

Disinfectants are generally stronger than sanitizers and are, therefore, typically effective against a wider range of bacteria, viruses and fungi. Oxyl-Pro is highly effective against a wide range of these pathogens, and our ready-to-use surface and hand product Oxyl-Pro Clean Hand and Surface Disinfectant is perfect for hard surface disinfection of objects that are touched often. These objects can be desks, countertops, doorknobs, computer keyboards, hands-on learning items, faucet handles, phones, toys, and gym material.

Daily cleaning and disinfection is required to avoid spreading of infectious diseases in these kinds of places, but sometimes there is some concern regarding the safety and toxicity of these products. The most common disinfectants are chlorine (Sodium hypochlorite) and Quaternary Ammonium Compounds (“Quats”).
Recent studies have pointed the efficacy of hydrogen peroxide disinfectants. These are thought to be the safest alternative to chlorine, quats, and other dangerous products

Oxyl-Pro is the safest alternative to all these products, since it is formulated just with food grade ingredients, which naturally degrade into water and oxygen. Oxyl-Pro Clean can be used to disinfect drinking water and swimming pools, while Oxyl-Clean Hand and Surface disinfectant can be directly sprayed into hard surfaces and hands without causing allergic reactions.

Cleaning removes germs, dirt, and impurities from surfaces or objects. Cleaning works by using soap (or detergent) and water to physically remove germs from surfaces. This process does not necessarily kill germs, but by removing them, it lowers their numbers and the risk of spreading infection.
Disinfecting kills germs on surfaces or objects. Disinfecting works by using chemicals to kill germs on surfaces or objects. This process does not necessarily clean dirty surfaces or remove germs, but by killing germs on a surface after cleaning, it can further lower the risk of spreading infection.
Sanitizing lowers the number of germs on surfaces or objects to a safe level, as judged by public health standards or requirements. This process works by either cleaning or disinfecting surfaces or objects to lower the risk of spreading infection.

Applications:

  • Hand disinfection.
  • Biofilm and microbe removal in sprinkler systems.
  • Public rooms.
  • Disinfection of hard surfaces.

Advantages:

  • Oxyl-Pro can be used for both the water pipework, and to disinfect surfaces.
  • The beneficial effects achieved in agriculture are transferrable to any outdoor facility.
  • Environmentally sustainable formulation, by products are oxygen and water.
  • Effective between pH 2-10, and temperatures up to 90°C.
