A person doesn’t have to make direct contact with a healthcare facility to be exposed to an infectious disease. Homes are were we start and end each day. In between that time we are touched, sneezed, and breathed on throughout the day. Even a person avoiding highly populated areas and others that look sickly will still make contact with countless items that other individuals have touched. Factor in that a person touches their face an average of 18 times an hour and common objects an average of 3.8 times per hour. (Door handles, counter tops, menu’s, light switches, etc.)It becomes obvious why Encore is important in the residential setting. Just because homes do not have sterilization standards like healthcare facilities does not mean families aren’t concerned about preventing the spread of disease in the home. Ironically, a home can potentially come in contact with more infectious disease than some areas of a healthcare facility. Parents go to work and come in contact with co-workers and children at school or daycare bring home the virus of the week.
However, as valuable as Encore is, the technology isn’t intended for people that just want to avoid a cold so they don’t miss work or ruin a family vacation. The Activated Ionized Hydrogen Peroxide treatment is exactly what’s needed for people convalescing at home who would benefit from a sterile environment. The green technology that Encore employs leaves only oxygen and water residue and is ideal for decontaminating a residence, especially for those with weakened immune systems
Common applications for a sterile residential environment include but are not limited to:
- At-home dialysis patients
- Patients with compromised immune systems (chemo patients)
- Pre or post-hospice care
- Post surgical preparation of residence – Sterile environment for convalescence
- Preparation of home environment for newborn
