Lab test results show that these systems achieve a greater than 99.9 percent reduction of Escherichia coli (E. coli), Clostridium difficile (C. diff), methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), pseudomonas and salmonella bacteria when used as directed, the release stated.
According to the release, when using the No-Touch Cleaning process, the first step is normally the application of chemicals to all surface areas to be cleaned; however, eliminating this step and using plain water has enabled the company to develop a new "high-speed" No-Touch Cleaning process that also greatly simplifies machine operation and training.
New time studies report that the already-fast No-Touch Cleaning times can now be further reduced by an additional 40 to 50 percent while delivering outstanding cleaning results, and as a result, Kaivac is announcing that a new patent-pending Rapid Restroom Sanitizing program with associated training materials will be ready for rollout in the fourth-quarter of 2009, the release noted.
Paul South, president of Valley Janitor Supply Company in Hamilton, Ohio, said: "We''ve been testing Kaivac''s new cleaning process in the field with successful results. According to our adenosine triphosphate (ATP) measurements, Kaivac''s Rapid Restroom Sanitizing program outperformed microfiber mopping with a brand-name chemical by a factor of 20 or more. Not only does the Kaivac system offer a better way to clean, but it is also safer and faster. Plus, the improved productivity and chemical savings create a compelling return on investment (ROI)."
Designed to remove the maximum amount of soil, bacteria and other biopollution, Kaivac''s patented No-Touch Cleaning systems combine an indoor pressure washer, a powerful wet vacuum and chemistry into an integrated system that empowers workers to hygienically clean without touching contaminated surfaces, the release added.
