Applied Silver and Carillon Miami Wellness Resort Partner to Launch Innovative Textile Care Program and Set a New Standard of Cleanliness for Hospitality Industry
Applied Silver Inc, (www.appliedsilver.com) creator of the first-of-its-kind high tech product SilvaClean® announced today that it is partnering with Carillon Miami Wellness Resort, a world-class beachfront health resort and luxury spa in Miami Beach, to launch a ground breaking textile care program and help establish a new standard of cleanliness for the hospitality industry. The Carillon Miami becomes the first resort in the world to introduce SilvaClean® into its housekeeping protocols.
SilvaClean® is the only EPA registered technology that makes all laundered material antimicrobial post-laundry. The smart IoT platform seamlessly infuses textiles with silver ions during the final rinse cycle of the wash. Once laundry is treated with the technology, it becomes active and continuously kills harmful pathogenic bacteria, mold and mildew that come in contact with the textiles, protecting users from risk of associated infections. The Carillon Miami will utilize SilvaClean® for cleaning guestroom launderable soft surfaces, the resort’s launderable uniforms and other items such as SPA robes, towels, and restaurant linens.
“Carillon Miami has invested in state-of-the-art technology throughout the resort, in light of the current climate, to ensure our guests receive the utmost care while on property,” said Tammy Pahel, Vice President of Spa and Wellness Operations at Carillon Miami Wellness Resort. “We are proud to partner with Applied Silver to be the first resort to incorporate SilvaClean® into our housekeeping service and to treat all linens and laundry items with the revolutionary technology when preparing our accommodations for guests’ arrival and throughout their stay.”
Applied Silver and Carillon Miami Wellness Resort have pledged to work together to establish a new standard of cleanliness and guest experience in the hospitality industry. They will collaboratively present at Global Wellness Summits to educate on the importance of this innovative technology in the hotel and hospitality industry. Carillon Miami has a reputation as a center of excellence for innovative technology and is revered as a reference point for incorporating new innovations that offer better, cleaner and safer experiences for guests and employees at their property.
“Holistic approaches in wellness are of paramount importance to public health well-being today and in the future,” said Dr. Priya Balachandran, Chief Operating Officer at Applied Silver. “SilvaClean’s unique ability to address soft surfaces in closest contact with guests and staff is transformative to the hospitality experience. SilvaClean is an invisible technology that combats the invisible enemy, pathogens at work in our environment. We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Carillon Miami and help advance their leadership role in the health and wellness space.”
The science behind SilvaClean is the broad-spectrum antimicrobial properties of silver. Silver has been in use since ancient times in medical applications (sutures, dental filling and other) as well as in homes (silver goblets). Applied Silver has been advancing this science for current applications for businesses with plans to make the technology available for all consumers in the near future. Recently, Wilson School of Textiles at NC State found that SilvaClean® treated textiles outperformed fabrics woven with antimicrobial fibers, like silver threads.
SilvaClean has proven to significantly improve hygiene in the surrounding environment wherever it has been deployed. The technology is already incorporated in infection control protocols at multiple hospitals and with several professional sports teams to reduce the risk of hospital-acquired infections and remove dangerous pathogens like MRSA. Product evaluations conducted in the New Orleans Saints and San Francisco 49ers’ locker rooms over multiple seasons showed a dramatic and sustained drop in pathogenic bacteria to near zero. Hospitals Infection Control programs that include the technology have seen clinically significant drops in infection rates.
