The Proactive Risk Minimizer

Health and hygiene are your priorities.

You follow hand hygiene protocols. You disinfect every hard surface. But when it comes to textiles, laundering alone isn’t enough to keep infection causing pathogens from hitching a ride on clean linens, scrubs and gowns, then spreading to patients and staff.

By using SilvaClean, you are creating a safe environment for your patients and healthcare frontline workers. SilvaClean has been proven to lower the risk of infection from soft surfaces because SilvaClean’s unique chemistry continuously fights unwanted microorganisms.
