RE-USABLE vs DISPOSABLE
In hospitals, each DYNAMOP is usually disposed of after use in one particular area to avoid cross-contamination. In other less critical environments it can be used for up to around 300 square meters/350 square yards. To maximise its effectiveness prior to disposal, it can be additionally used as a duster before being attached to the mop head, where it can also be used to dust walls, before being applied to the floor.
When used dry, the DYNAMOP re-disperses approximately the same amount of dust as a re-usable wet mop and both, significantly less than a broom.
Vacuum cleaners can also disperse dust and bacteria back into the air. Once microbes are airborne, there is more chance of them reaching a critical site such as an open wound. In the case of ordinary dust, it is just being moved from one surface to another.
Re-usable systems and vacuum cleaners are capital intensive.
Up to 60% of the cost of cleaning a room can be saved by using a dry disposable system as opposed to a wet re-usable system.
In Sweden, tests on re-usable laundered mops show bacterial counts were in the millions after only 8 hours storage. Rinsing with disinfectant had little effect on lowering the bacterial count.
DYNAMOP - SAFE DISPOSAL
After each ward or area has been cleaned the DYNAMOP pad can be incinerated. There is no risk of harmful vapours, its constituents being wholly organic - no nitrogren or chlorine present. It breaks down into carbon dioxide, water and energy.
If used in a contaminated area the cleaning pad can be discarded into a plastic bag or other suitable container for transfer to the disposal area.
For the retail market particularly, consumers should be encouraged to think green, with our new BIO-MOP. The BIO-MOP, rather than being incinerated can be thrown onto the compost heap where it will bio-degrade natually over a number of weeks. BIO-MOP is a little more expensive but it doesn't 'cost the earth' and will be popular with environmentalists and the general public alike.
