In 2017, McClain began working with Clear Three, our United Kingdom Distributor, in the development of cold/water laundry systems using ozone. With Return-on Investment of 3 to 16 months, the use of ozone for laundering is a cost- effective boon to commercial facilities (i.e. Nursing Care Homes, Hotels, Hospitals, etc.) that rely on laundering for the health and safety of occupants.
OzoKleen cold water laudry systems are very effective at destroying/inactivating the common microbes found in laundry including. S. aureus, Ps. aeruginosa, Candida albicans, E. coli, Streptococcus faecalis, A. niger, C. perfringens, Campylobacter jejuni, and Aeromonas, Actinobacter, Lactobacilli species) as well as single and double-strand viruses.
It is significant to note, that in addition the common microbes found in laundry listed above, ozone/cold water systems also destroy/inactivate microbes which are not effectively destroyed/inactivated by conventional thermal washing with bleach (i.e. MRSA (methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus), Clostridium difficile (C.D.A.D. – Clostridium difficile acquired diarrhea). These organisms are totally eradicated from soiled linens during ozone/cold water laundering.
