Trusted Clorox Healthcare Products Now EPA-Registered To Kill Infection-Causing Pathogens On Hard-to-Treat Soft Surfaces

Stocks in this article: CLX

INDIANAPOLIS, Sept. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In the fight against healthcare-associated infections (HAIs), hard surface disinfection is not enough. Dangerous pathogens can lurk on all types of surfaces in healthcare environments, including soft surfaces like privacy curtains. Recent findings show that 92 percent of hospital privacy curtains are contaminated one week after laundering,[1] yet 37 percent of facilities report that they only launder privacy curtains when they are visibly soiled.[2] If left unattended, contaminated soft surfaces can undermine a healthcare facility's infection control protocols and pose infection risks for patients, staff and visitors.

Clorox Healthcare Introduces Simple Solutions for Soft SurfacesFinally, there is a simple solution for eliminating microorganisms from healthcare soft surfaces. Clorox Healthcare® Hydrogen Peroxide Cleaner Disinfectants are U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) registered to kill microorganisms on hard and soft surfaces.* Healthcare facilities trust Clorox Healthcare® Hydrogen Peroxide Cleaner Disinfectants to disinfect hard surfaces quickly, and now they also kill bacteria on soft surfaces in 30 seconds. The products can be used on high-touch soft surfaces such as privacy curtains, chairs, couches, rugs, cushions and mattresses.

"Stopping the spread of infection-causing pathogens in the healthcare environment is a top priority for infection prevention professionals, but while hard surface disinfectants are widely available, no simple solution for soft surfaces has been introduced," said Lynda Lurie, marketing manager, Clorox Professional Products Company. "With the new soft surface EPA-registration of Clorox Healthcare® Hydrogen Peroxide Cleaner Disinfectants, healthcare professionals finally have a two-in-one solution for quickly killing microorganisms on both hard and soft surfaces to help stop the spread of infection-causing pathogens, wherever they may be."

In addition, Clorox Healthcare has introduced new and improved Citrace® Hospital Disinfectant & Deodorizer, which is also EPA registered to kill bacteria on soft surfaces in just 30 seconds. Citrace® Hospital Disinfectant & Deodorizer disinfects hard surfaces, deodorizes, and kills bacteria on high-touch, soft surfaces such as curtains, chairs, lab coats+, linens+ and mouse pads.
