Advanced air and surface purification technology – Wellisair helping care homes stay virus-free during the coronavirus pandemic.
Care home residents often with weakened immune systems are more vulnerable than most to infection, making protecting residents a tough challenge. Even the most diligent cleaning and disinfection routines cannot completely remove microorganisms from the air and surfaces – which are continually being replaced by coughing, sneezing and contaminated hands.
In May 2020 the UK Government released Infection Control Funding worth £600 million to help tackle the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) in care homes. This was an urgent call for all care homes to approach their local authorities for the financial support needed to implement effective infection-control measures. Many care homes have now invested in Clean Air technology to protect patients, staff and visitors moving forward. Due to the success of the Infection Control Fund in supporting care providers to reduce transmission and re-enabling close contact visiting, the funding has now been extended until September 2021.
Case Study Wardington House Nursing Home
At Wardington House, Care Home-owner George Tuthill researched and investigated OH technology, which he had initially heard about on the US news: Using OH / Hydroxyl generators in care homes has become common practice in the US. Hydroxyl Radicals are naturally formed in the troposphere and are deemed natures best cleaning agent but devices such as the Wellisair recreate the atomic process by the form of oxidisation. Having initially purchased 5 US manufactured OH / Hydroxyl Air Purifiers he explored the UK marketplace for an alternative product as the noise level was too high. George came across the Wellisair air purifier, initially purchasing three units from Axair Fans UK Ltd, then a further six units over the next two months.
Wardington House care home has thankfully had no cases of coronavirus to date due to the investment and measures put in place by the owner, for the health, safety and wellbeing for both residents, staff and visitors alike.
Wellisair is the perfect solution for keeping care home residents safe in communal areas, as well as protecting staff and visitors. Wellisair provides continuous, natural, powerful air and surface sanitisation 24/7 by producing and expanding Hydroxyl radical particles through the natural process of oxidisation. The OH (Hydroxyl) compound produces a cascade reaction of oxidisation on a molecular level, binding with the Hydrogen in the structures of compounds that form viruses, bacteria and mould etc causing an irreversible breakdown rending them harmless. From installation to 99.9% room sanitisation in less than 2 hours.
