With Coronavirus numbers on the rise, one local senior living provider is doubling down on heightened sanitation to protect some of society’s most vulnerable. The Hearth at Glastonbury is using electrolyzed water, which it produces on-site as part of its Total Coverage 360 cleaning standards, to keep seniors safe.
The community has produced and used hundreds of gallons of cleaning solution since its parent company, Hearth Management, entered into a portfolio-wide agreement with Viking Pure Solutions, a company specializing in electrochemically-activated cleaning and disinfecting.
“As much as I wish COVID-19 was a thing of the past, I fear that it’s far from over,” said Kevin Hunter, Hearth Management’s COO. “We’ve made a promise to our residents and their families to keep the virus out of our buildings to the best of our ability, and Viking Pure helps us do that.”
Viking Pure Solutions’ sanitation technology uses electrolyzed water to kill bacteria, fungus, and viruses. It also prevents micro-organisms from creating a resistance to any of its disinfectants. Unlike many popular cleaning products, Viking Pure’s system is completely non-toxic, is registered by the EPA to produce solution as a Hospital Grade Disinfectant and has proven efficacy against viruses similar to COVID-19.
“I’m confident that electrolyzed water is an efficient way to sanitize our communities to the best of our ability,” added Hunter. “Frequent hand washing, thorough staff training, and compliance with CDC guidelines are still top priority to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus, but our residents deserve more, and it’s our responsibility to give it to them.”
