New multi-purpose cleaner and disinfectant bolsters infection prevention efforts

Recognized as a 2019 Top Innovation of the Year by The Infection Prevention Strategy (TIPS)

The EvaClean Infection Prevention System by EarthSafe has launched PUR:ONE,  a universal cleaner/disinfectant the company says  fills the need for an end-to-end sanitation solution while eliminating the need for multiple chemicals.

EarthSafe says it began by developing the EvaClean Infection Prevention System, which leverages advanced electrostatic sprayer technologies to cover three-times the area in 80 percent less time, a “drop and go” sanitizing/disinfection chemistry, and simplified, scalable processes for higher-level compliance and maximum output but felt  a critical gap remained in daily cleaning and floor disinfection strategies.

“EvaClean is 100 percent infection prevention focused,” said Jeremiah Gray, Chief Operating Officer and Co-Founder of EarthSafe, in a news release. “We’re also about innovation with a purpose, which means we take a practical approach to developing new ways to elevate cleaning efficacy and efficiency.”

With PUR:ONE, environmental services teams now have a one-step cleaning and disinfection solution for high touch surfaces and floors, and the new front-end component of the all-encompassing EvaClean System. 

The company says it’s also “the first single step cleaner and disinfectant to receive EPA registration as effective against bacteria in biofilm and is on K-List of approved products for use in cases of Candida auris, plus other emerging pathogen threats, which are vital concerns in healthcare.”

EarthSafe asserts that PUR:ONE is powerful enough to kill C. diff in 4 minutes and the broad-spectrum chemistry also works for daily cleaning and floor disinfection, the latter typically lacking in most cleaning protocols. With a top NFPA rating of triple zero, it’s also safe for personnel, patrons and patients, and won’t damage equipment or floor finishes. 

Like EvaClean’s PURTABS sanitizer and disinfectant, PUR:ONE is a NaDCC pre-measured tablet concentrate that is sustainable, stable and economical.  Because EvaClean’s entire program is standardized around a single chemistry solution, it streamlines cleaning processes from beginning to end, reduces potential failure points due to human error, eradicates chemical hazards and exposure, increases worker safety, and ensures a higher level of compliance.

The difference is in the application method. EarthSafe explaines that the PURTABS are designed for use with EvaClean’s Protexus Electrostatic Sprayers, while PUR:ONE works with existing microfiber cleaning programs, as well as dry wipes and spray bottles.  It can also be mixed on the go at a workstation cart, the ideal single dosing solution for floor disinfection using disposable or launderable microfiber mop heads.  When combined with EvaClean’s best practice guidelines and training for optimal implementation efficiency, it creates a synergistic system that will enhance cleaning protocols from A to Z.

The measurable efficacy and improved outcomes of this systematic approach are confirmed by a new EvaClean Environmental Monitoring Program, an evidence based third-party validation of cleaning processes and surface disinfection.  “EvaClean’s credibility is further reinforced by its recent recognition from The Infection Prevention Strategy (TIPS) as a 2019 Top Innovation of the Year.  However, the truest form of authentication are the hospitals, schools, businesses and buildings who trust EvaClean to protect the health and welfare of everyone therein.”
