Ambius revolutionises health & safety for businesses with Hygiene360
Business leaders are faced with an onslaught of new decisions to keep their customers and employees safe from the spread of Covid-19.
Ambius, known for its commitment to helping organisations promote healthy spaces through interior landscaping and scenting solutions, launched Hygiene360, a suite of full-service solutions that tackle the spread of germs on surfaces, person-to-person and in the air.
"On top of trying to get their businesses back open during this pandemic, business leaders are looking for ways to give their employees and customers the peace of mind that their health & safety are a top priority," notes John Myers, president and CEO of Rentokil, the parent company of Ambius.
"Hygiene360 is the next frontier in workplace and customer experience, and it is our responsibility as leaders to provide an environment where people feel safe and confident.
"As there is no single solution that can tackle all germs, this full-service approach disrupts germs from spreading throughout commercial spaces."
The Hygiene360 model focuses on healthy building strategies to minimise risk and improve long-term health & safety in a layered, 360-degree approach by tackling the three most common ways germs are spread: surface-to-person via contact with contaminated surfaces, air-t- person via airborne respiratory droplets or person-to-person through direct contact.
The Hygiene360 solution includes:
Surface Hygiene... The Ambius surface hygiene solution provides fast, efficient disinfection services to help prevent the spread of germs from surfaces to people. The professionally-performed disinfection service utilses advanced liquid dispersal technology, which can treat large spaces quickly with EPA-registered, List N disinfectant. Viruses, such as the Coronavirus, bacteria and other pathogens, can live on surfaces for days, and the Ambius surface hygiene solution can disinfect hard, non-porous surfaces and high-touch contact points. The service is safe, using a hypoallergenic and environmentally-friendly formula, which allows for re-entry to the workspace 30 minutes after a zone is serviced.
Air Hygiene... The Ambius air hygiene solution has a multi-layered filtration process, which includes a medical-grade HEPA13 filter to filter out 99.97% of harmful, airborne contaminants, including Covid-19, mould, bacteria, smoke and more. To ensure safe operation and continuously clean air, Ambius professionals will install, clean and maintain air purifiers with monthly wellness checks, disinfection and filter replacements. The freestanding unit produces low noise, at 34-55 decibels, and is as quiet as a home refrigerator. Indoor air can contain up to five times more pollutants than outdoor air, and with Americans spending up to 90% of their time indoors, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, the importance of air hygiene is vital.
Hand Hygiene... The Ambius hand hygiene solution helps to reduce the spread of viruses with safe, gentle, dye-free foam sanitiser that kills up to 99.99% of bacteria, viruses and harmful germs. The modular, mobile sanitiser stands use sensor-operated, no-touch technology and will include bi-weekly or monthly service, based on the business's unique traffic. With more than 80% of common viruses and bacteria spread by contaminated hands, the Ambius experts will determine the correct placement of each unit to encourage positive hand hygiene as well as signal the business's commitment to health & safety.
