2020 is drawing to a close and in some ways it’s incredible; so much has happened this year and yet it has flown by in a blink. Everything we’ve done, read, talked about or planned has revolved around a single subject: coronavirus.
In fact, we’ve spent so much time talking about Covid-19 and the virus that causes it – SARS-Cov-2 – that we’ve almost forgotten about all the other germs and bugs we would normally be concerned about, in winter and indeed throughout the year. From influenza to the common cold and the dreaded stomach bugs, other viruses and bacteria haven’t gone away just because there’s a new coronavirus on the block.
In all sectors, but especially in healthcare and food hygiene, it’s critical that we don’t take our eye off the ball when it comes to these pathogens. Flu, of course, can be deadly – but even a cold can increase a person’s chances of complications if they go on to contract coronavirus soon after, and bugs like E. coli can cause severe symptoms that may be life-threatening for vulnerable people.
Other bacteria and viruses are still lurking
One positive thing to come out of this pandemic is that we’ve seen a dramatic reduction in the incidence of flu and other respiratory viruses so far this winter – proof that hygiene really matters when it comes to protecting health. And the benefits don’t stop there; many organisations will undoubtedly take away some interesting lessons about the financial benefits of guarding their workplaces against sickness through more stringent hygiene measures.
Key to this all is convenience. Once the immediate threat of coronavirus has subsided, there will always be a tendency for organisations to become complacent and slide back into old habits on hygiene. Maintaining the current high levels of surface hygiene requires systems that are versatile, effective and easy to use – and that’s where Ramsol comes in.
Above all else, Ramsol is an effective antibacterial and virucidal disinfectant – it’s approved to BS EN 1276, BS EN 13697 and BS EN 1650, and effective against all the pathogens that commonly make people sick. This includes enveloped viruses like influenza, SARS-CoV-2 and the common cold, as well as pneumonia-causing bacteria like Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and E. coli, which causes food poisoning.
Ramsol is suitable for use in almost any environment – it’s approved for both clinical and food preparation environments, and safe to use on both hard surfaces and textiles.
Convenient hygiene = sustainable hygiene
Of course, another significant Ramsol USP is its unique delivery system. When applied using our 22-litre pressurised canister, we believe Ramsol is the most convenient solution for large surface disinfection on the market currently. It requires no power supply, no recharging, no rinsing or wiping down – simply spray and leave for complete peace of mind. Ramsol’s optimised spray density delivers a 20-micron mist that gets into all those hard-to-reach places, but also falls out of suspension quickly, so re-occupation times for vehicles and buildings are reduced to just ten minutes.
This convenience means Ramsol fits seamlessly into any organisation’s hygiene routine, without any safety concerns or operational disruption. The arrival of a vaccine means that for the first time, we’re able to envisage a post-Covid future, but the events of this past year have changed attitudes to hygiene forever. With Ramsol, organisations of all types can stride confidently into that future, with guaranteed peace of mind on germs.
