Webinar: Superior Disinfection in LTC

There’s a new method for surface disinfection in Long Term Care facilities

Despite the best efforts, manual cleaning and disinfection methods can miss areas, leaving bacteria and viruses on hard-to-reach surfaces. It has been reported that only about 50% of surfaces in hospital rooms are effectively disinfected.1

Electrostatic spraying technology, a new method for surface disinfection, can help address this issue.2 Together with the Ontario Long Term Care Association (OLTCA), CloroxPro® has prepared a webinar to help educate about this exciting new application of electrostatic technology, and how it can be used in Long Term Care (LTC) facilities.

Learn more about this revolutionary technology today.

The webinar is hosted by the OLTCA and presented by Barley Chironda, Sales Director and International Infection Control Specialist at CloroxPro® Canada.

The webinar will:

  • Highlight key points about infection transmission and the role of surface disinfection in preventing outbreaks.
  • Explain how electrostatic technology is applied to surface disinfection.
  • Provide information about the Clorox Total 360® Electrostatic Sprayer System, a revolutionary technology that enables superior coverage of trusted Clorox® disinfectants in hard-to-reach places — including the side, underside and backside of surfaces.3

This webinar is ideal for anyone who wants to learn more about electrostatic technology for surface disinfection, and how it can be used in LTC facilities.
