DYNAMOP vs DUST & BACTERIA
It is estimated that 1 out of every 11 UK patients catch an infection while being treated in hospital. This is a consequence of poor hygiene standards. Cross-contamination can occur through human contact but also from airborne infection and inadequate cleaning.
The last 20 years has also seen a huge rise in the number of people suffering from allergies, so it is important for communal buildings in particular to be cleaned thoroughly.
'Microfibre' mops are hailed as the latest weapon in dust control for homes and public buildings but this type of mop has been used by well informed health authorities for over 30 years.
DYNAMOP also works by attracting dust with a short-life electrostatic charge but it is more efficient than the standard microfibre mops because the DYNAMOP fibres are free standing, enabling dust and bacteria to become trapped within the fibrous matrix.
These free-standing fibres have a greater surface area for dust collection.
DYNAMOP also collects and holds larger particles than dust i.e. crumbs and hairs (pet hairs and human hair). It has been used in operating theatres, after sluicing down, to pick up stray pieces of thread and misplaced needles. The standard microfibre mops do not do this.
Tests at the NATEC Institute, Germany, show that under laboratory conditions, DYNAMOP picks up 95-98% of bacteria.
