Electrolytic Ozone for Laundry in Nursing Homes

ozone for laundry in nursing home

More professional laundry businesses have been using aqueous ozone to deliver superior laundry services by adding a sanitizing process to the wash cycle. During a pandemic, laundry centers in nursing homes have a new urgency to ensure that viral cross contamination doesn’t become a threat to the safety of nursing home residents. Ozonated water is a powerful oxidant, and an ozone system like the OWS series by BioSure gets the job done by using aqueous ozone in the laundry operation to minimize the use of chlorine bleach while disinfecting any traces of virus or bacteria on clothes.

BioSure Ozonated Water System and the OWS Series don’t just provide an ozone cleaning and disinfecting system — it does so with greater purity, more consistent water flow, and higher levels of ozone. As ozone is an effective sanitizer that can be used even in cold water to effectively clean linen and clothes, nursing homes stand to significantly save on energy and electricity costs by reducing the use of hot water requirements for laundry. Environmental impact is minimized compared to chemicals as well.

The OWS Series can be installed in laundry water lines to implement ozonated water into every segment of the laundry process in nursing homes. It pumps ozonated water that sanitizes the tap water running through the pipes of the nursing home — water that is used to not only clean all aspects of the laundry requirements but the actual washing machines themselves.

The OWS Series sanitizes the physical pipelines, as well as all of the water that passes through them. What’s more, the process eliminates biofilm or residue in the pipelines that lead into the washing machines, meaning only pure, clean water is dispersed into the laundry machines. This greatly reduces the mildew and mold in laundry rooms and on linens.

Washing with ozonated water means using one of the most powerful disinfectants available, but it also allows for washing in lukewarm and cold water. On top of this, the bleaching properties of ozone can reduce the amount of laundry detergent and other chemicals used, which in turn decreases the chemical discharge and pollutants produced with each laundry load. It’s not only good for the environment, but it also reduces the number of chemicals that come into contact with clothing. This means clothing and linens last longer.

The Benefits of Ozone for Laundry

Longer-lasting clothing is a nice benefit, but for some people, great-looking clothing might be even more important. While ozone cannot replace bleach as a laundry bleaching agent, it’s possible to use less bleach and other detergents because ozone is a better catalyst for bleach than hot water. It not only reduces the use of bleach but in addition it helps reduce detergents, degreasers, and fabric softeners. However, bleach is still required to whiten, although less may be required depending on existing conditions within a facility.

Ozonated water has enough benefits that more nursing homes are implementing ozone into their sanitizing procedures. With nursing home residents among the most vulnerable to Covid-19, the need to implement efficient and cost-effective sanitation systems is critical.
