Infection Prevention

It is imperative that the highest standards of hygiene are maintained throughout the care home sector, nursing homes, hotels and schools to help prevent infection. As such it’s essential that teams implementing hygiene routines are fully trained on which products to use and how to use them properly so they can deliver the highest level of cleanliness.


Our team are working with customers in these sectors to ensure they are using the most effective products, suitable to their specific requirements and this includes Holchem’s ready to use Virucidal Disinfectant.  It’s a multi-purpose product formulated to kill a range of health risk micro-organisms such as COVID-19, MRSA, Polio Virus, C. difficile, Norovirus and Influenza.  The affected area should be cleaned and Optimum Virucidal Disinfectant can then be sprayed direct onto the surface.  For routine disinfection it must be left for five minutes, for a deep disinfection following possible viral contamination leave for 30 minutes and for C. difficile it can be left for 60 minutes. It is available in a 1 litre ready to use format and is suitable to use on all hard surfaces including hand rails, wood, metal, plastic and work tops. It is easy to use and is designed to be used in the care home sector, nursing homes, hotels and schools.

The product has been independently approved to EN1276, EN1650, EN14476, EN13697, EN1656, EN1657 and EN13704  (this includes COVID-19).
