Safe, Chemical-Free, Cleaning of Hospital Ward Surfaces


leanward - Safe, Chemical-Free, Cleaning of Hospital Ward Surfaces

Cleanward aims to develop a novel, safe, user-friendly anti-microbial cleaning system, using titanium dioxide coated ultra-microfibre fabric that will integrate easily into existing contract cleaning equipment.

It will achieve log105 microbial removal and the coating will react with water and UV to produce a highly reactive environment: this will kill all harmful micro-organisms quickly and thoroughly without the need for chemical disinfectant all in an isolated, low water volume unit.

The cloths will then be available for re-use without running the risk of microbiological cross contamination.
