The Human mind has a memory technique of which it remembers a thing by attaching features or possible occurrences surrounding that thing. In this journey we would want you to note that Epochem Sodium Hypochlorite has been tested, tried and trusted. It has practically proven to be the best disinfectant solution in Nigeria, we are certain you will remember that. But first you need to understand the importance of cleaning.
The year 2020 will be truly much remembered for so many things. First and foremost, the pandemic of Coronavirus, its exponential spread across the globe and mortality; how it has affected human interactions, migration, economy of nations, work spaces, religious orientations, sports, education, tourism, etc. More importantly it has brought humanity back to the very basics of keeping a safe hygiene. Now we see that cleanliness cannot be overemphasized. While World Health Organization (WHO)and other researchers seek to find the answer to this very global challenge that threatens to end the human race (if given a chance), simple but essential personal hygiene practices remains the escape route to reduce the spread of the dreaded Novel COVID-19 and hence heal the world again. We strongly recommend our coronavirus safety kit to stay safe.
Environmental contamination plays an important role in the transmission of several key health care-associated pathogens. Effective and thorough cleaning/disinfecting of the patient environment is essential. Room decontamination units (such as ultraviolet-C and hydrogen peroxide systems) aid in reducing environmental contamination after terminal room cleaning and disinfection. Human exposure to environmental contaminants can be measured in the ambient environment (air, water, land), at the point of human contact, or after contaminants have entered the human body through entry portals such as the eyes, skin, stomach, intestines, or lungs.
Corona virus can be transmitted from contaminated dry surfaces including self-inoculation of mucous membranes of the nose, eyes or mouth. 1 ml of sputum has been described to contain approximately 100,000,000 viral copies.It is of paramount importance to clean and disinfect environmental surfaces in our homes on a regular basis (eg, daily, 3 times per week), not minding if surfaces are visibly dirty or not.
The WHO recommends “to ensure that environmental cleaning and disinfection procedures are followed consistently and correctly. Thoroughly cleaning environmental surfaces with water and detergent and applying commonly used hospital-level disinfectants (such as Sodium Hypochlorite) are effective and sufficient procedures.”
Research have shown that:
1.The typical use of bleach is at a dilution ratio of 1:100 of 5% sodium hypochlorite resulting in a final concentration of 0.05%.
2.The recently published data with coronavirus suggest that a concentration of 0.1% is effective in 1 min.
WHAT IS CLEANING / DISINFECTING?
Cleaning is the initial essential step of any disinfection process. Cleaning removes organic matter, salts, and visible earth, all of which interfere with microbial inactivation. The physical action of scrubbing with detergents and surfactants and rinsing with water removes substantial numbers of microorganisms. If a surface is not cleaned first, the success of the disinfection process can be compromised. Removal of all visible blood and inorganic and organic matter can be as critical as the germicidal activity of the disinfecting agent. When a surface cannot be cleaned adequately, it should be protected with barriers.
Not all cleaners have disinfectant properties, and not all disinfectants are formulated to clean. Unless a cleaning product explicitly states that it kills germs, it would be a costly assumption to conclude so. Products made for disinfecting are used to eliminate unwanted microbes from surfaces but may oftentimes leave dirt behind. You probably do not want to think about adding another step to your regular cleaning regimen, but if you want to truly disinfect your home, you should consider using a dedicated disinfectant (like Epochem Sodium hypochlorite which has all the trappings of a good disinfectant) after wiping down surfaces with your usual cleaner.
What is Sodium Hypochlorite (NaOCl)?
Sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) is a compound that can be effectively used for water purification. It is used on a large scale for surface purification, bleaching, odor removal and water disinfection.
