Quickfoam 10: a groundbreaking solution for eliminating biofilm in drains
UMF|PerfectClean’s new Quickfoam 10 is a game-changing product developed to transform the fight against biofilm in drains. A 10-gallon, battery-powered foaming unit, it generates high-density Klorese disinfectant foam to treat any size drain.
Klorese, explains UMF|PerfectClean, is the only chemistry with a neutral pH that is US Environmental Protection Agency-registered to kill bacteria in biofilm and meets the legal requirements of EPA regulation 40 CFR 403 for sanitary sewer disposal, meaning it is safe to pour down the drain.
Biofilm is a protective slime that makes pathogens highly resistant to disinfectants. Quickfoam 10 foams away bacteria in biofilm safely, efficiently, and thoroughly.
"The pathogens that cause preventable healthcare-associated infections, many of which are antibiotic-resistant superbugs, can thrive in patient bathroom sinks and other drains in healthcare facilities," says UMF|PerfectClean CEO George Clarke. "These pathogens form wet biofilm in drains and p-traps, allowing them to persist for long periods of time. They are difficult to remove and, according to the US Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, patients may be exposed when water splashes from the drain and the bacteria are aerosolised, contaminating the patient care zone.
“With Quickfoam 10, our healthcare customers have an invaluable tool in mitigating the risk to patients from antibiotic-resistant organisms in biofilm. In addition to hospitals, Quickfoam 10 can be used in any environment where wet biofilms might form, including drains in hotels, classrooms, and cleanrooms."
In February, the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology, in combination with the Infectious Diseases Society of America, the Association for Professionals in Infection Control & Epidemiology, the American Hospital Association and The Joint Commission, issued new guidance for preventing healthcare-associated infections through hand hygiene. The guidelines included a recommendation to disinfect sink drains using an EPA-registered disinfectant with kill claims against bacteria in biofilm.
Quickfoam 10 boasts a host of features and benefits that make it an indispensable addition to healthcare, education, controlled environments, food and beverage, and food processing. Powered by a high-capacity battery, it also runs on standard 110V power to ensure uninterrupted performance and mobility.
Snap-on / snap-off accessories include sink drain, floor drain and spray wand tools, which are interchangeable.
