Health Care Odors Removed with SanusAer
Visiting a loved one staying at a health care facility can be unpleasant if there is a problem odor. Body odors, food and beverage smells, and bodily fluids can all contribute to the weird blend of horrible odors prevalent in these facilities. Today, however, Hospital odors, Nursing Home odors, Assisted Living odors, and other Health Care odors and the dangerous bacteria that cause them, are safely removed with SanusAer® High Output Ozone Generators.
Odors are evidence that dangerous bacteria or mold are present and pose a potential threat to your residents and patients. SanusAer® ozone generators will eliminate these odors at their source by destroying the hidden microorganisms behind them. Opportunistic bacteria in Health Care facilities, including MRSA, VRSA, C-diff, and others, will be safely and effectively eliminated with shock treatments of Ozone. The exclusive SanusAer® design provides the most effective delivery of Ozone to a given treatment area, resulting in a faster, more complete room sanitization.
Problem: Hospital smell is that unique combination of body odors, waste and bodily fluids, food / beverage spills, that not only permeates the furniture, drapes, bedding, and carpet, but can attach to hard surfaces like walls and ceilings as well. The presence of microorganisms in these environments almost ensures that odor problems will persist. Cleaning the room with standard chemicals and methods can't address the odors, because they are often hidden and masked by the fragrances in the cleaning products.
Solution: Ozone is the most effective cleaning agent in these situations because it is a gas that will reach everywhere air currents travel, thus disinfecting / sanitizing surfaces not available to the housekeeping staff. After the traditional cleaning is complete, a SanusAer high output generator is brought into the unoccupied room and set-up on a timer, discharging Ozone gas, for a pre-determined treatment time. After the time shuts off the unit, the room is allowed to "air-out" for a period of about an hour before the room can be occupied.
Note: Care should be taken to ensure that the Ozone does not travel outside the treatment area. Often this involves determining whether the air handling system is common to adjacent rooms, and blocking off vents that could transport the gas to other areas. Access doors may also be taped off to prevent the gas from leaking into the halls.
Treating a room with Ozone ensures that the next occupant will not be living in the filth / bacteria / odors from the previous resident. New patients, their family, and visitors will enjoy a fresh smelling room, that has been disinfected by Ozone, made safe by the elimination of the microorganisms behind the odor.
