Until now, traditional methods of sanitizing public restrooms consisted of using devices that periodically release cleaning and air freshening products. This gives a feeling of cleanliness and freshness, but the only way to ensure complete hygiene in public or institutional restrooms is through cleaning with chemical products.
Now, companies specializing in toilet and urinal sanitization have a revolutionary new tool that addresses the problem at its source instead of just masking it. It’s called PUROH, a device that clinically guarantees air and surface disinfection and also prevents the most common types of contagion.
It’s a purification technology based on the Open-Air Factor, which is a generation of neutral OH radicals known as natural detergent because it occurs naturally in the upper layers of the atmosphere in the natural process called Advanced Oxidation. PUROH has successfully harnessed the generation of these radicals with an effective and harmless chain reaction.
Through a light ozonification of a hydrogen peroxide cartridge, PUROH constantly emits radicals that generate a disinfectant reaction in the air and on surfaces. This reaction spreads through the vapor particles, making it highly suitable for installation in bathrooms and public restrooms.
Conventional HEPA filtration methods are inefficient as a solution for places with continuous user rotation, and besides not disinfecting the surface, they make noise and consume a lot of energy. Chemical methods need to be performed during times when the restrooms aren’t in use because they produce toxic waste and require ventilation afterwards.
PUROH eliminates bad odors rather than masking them. The responsible chemical compounds that reach our olfactory system are organic volatile compounds (VOCs). PUROH mineralizes these compounds present in the aerosol found in these places, converting them into harmless substances such as oxygen, water, or soluble carbonates.
PUROH doesn’t need a large fan to circulate the air, so its energy consumption is negligible, making it very sustainable. It’s also virtually silent and very affordable.
Since it doesn’t incorporate any aroma diffuser or air freshener, it can be installed in any space to guarantee a pathogen-free and clean environment. If desired, we can provide you with merchandising material to communicate these benefits to the public.
