Benefits of Germicide
Do you know the difference between a deodoriser and a germicide?
A deodoriser is designed simply to mask any unpleasant smells. It doesn't have any anti-bacterial properties; so as germs multiply in the waste the odours intensify and a deodoriser can be overpowered quickly in terms of masking the odours. The multiplication of microorganisms, such as Staph aureus, E. Coli, Salmonella, Candida and Gonorrhoea, is also uncontrolled, increasing the risk of cross infection for users.
A germicide is active against the germs within a unit, rapidly inhibiting their growth then killing them. Cannon’s exclusive germicide Activap™ eradicates 99.999% of potentially harmful bacteria, reducing the number of bacteria to below the practical infectious dose level. Activap™ works through a unique vapour action, reducing infection risk over the full service cycle and, by killing the bacteria, it prevents the formation of odours at source.
We replace Activap™ in every change over of feminine hygiene, clinical and nappy units as part of our industry leading service.
If you value the well-being of your staff and visitors, ask your service provider ‘What’s inside your unit’ and ensure you’re protected by an effective germicide such as Activap™.
