Vital-Oxide for Safely Disinfecting and Sanitizing Healthcare Facilities

RD-Weis-Companies-Full-Service-Commercial-Flooring-Carpet-Maintenance-Installation02As winter sets in, healthcare facilities in the Metro East St. Louis area often experience an influx of sick patients and an increased need to disinfect against health threatening microbes.  Cleaning methods and processes for these facilities must adhere to strict guidelines in order to keep occupants safe, sometimes making it complex to choose just the right products and applications.

Protecting Patients and Caregivers

Cleaning products with heavy odors or corrosive properties can be very dangerous, especially in places like medical offices, clinics, nursing homes and other healthcare facilities where people may have extreme sensitivities.  Vital-Oxide is not a harsh chemical cleaner like bleach or other disinfectants.  Instead, it is an odorless, eco-friendly, non-toxic and non-corrosive disinfectant that is not irritating to the skin.  It is EPA registered to safely and effectively clean a wide range of surfaces including:

  • Stainless steel, tile and other hard surfaces
  • Stone and other porous surfaces
  • Carpeting, colorfast fabrics, clothing and linens

Vital-Oxide is NSF approved for food preparation surfaces even without rinsing, and it will not stain or discolor any surface or material.  It eliminates mold and mildew and completely removes odors at the molecular level.  Vital-Oxide solution can also be directly applied or added to a washer to effectively remove bloodstains and other body fluids.

Hospital-Grade Antimicrobial Action

Vital-Oxide helps healthcare facilities limit exposure to harmful pathogens. It has been University and Lab tested under GLP standards to effectively perform against a wide variety of bacteria, yeasts, viruses, fungi, spores and other microbes including:

  • Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureau (MRSA)
  • Norovirus
  • Salmonella
  • Legionella Pneumophilia
  • E. Coli
  • H1N1 Virus (Swine Flu)
  • Hepatitis B & C
  • HIV

Vital-Oxide is effective at low concentrations, over a wide pH range.  It eliminates allergens and also kills and prevents biofilm.

Benefits of Professional Application

Grime Stoppers uses an innovative and highly effective application method for Vital-Oxide known as electrostatic spraying.  This method adds an electrostatic charge to the droplets of disinfecting solution, pulling the spray toward the target at 75 times the force of gravity.  This intensified pull creates what is known as electrostatic “wraparound;” a 360-degree coating of disinfectant to completely clean and sanitize every inch of the treated area.

A high quality professional application of Vital-Oxide is an economical way to provide a healthy environment for patients and caregivers in healthcare facilities.  Our electrostatic spraying technology uses less solution than other application methods and can quickly treat sizable areas with superior coverage.  The highly trained technicians with Grime Stoppers are able to work quickly so that treated areas can usually be used in 30 minutes or less.

In addition to providing better coverage more efficiently, professional application of Vital-Oxide also eliminates cross-contamination risks that can otherwise be associated with spray-and-wipe methods of cleaning.
