With widespread reports of the Coronavirus sweeping the nation, one local senior living provider, The Hearth at Castle Gardens in Vestal, is shifting its sites to heightened sanitation to protect some of society’s most vulnerable. This process includes onsite community sanitation product generation, e-misting throughout the community for complete coverage, and deep cleaning measures throughout all community areas both day and night. The Hearth at Castle Gardens’ parent company, Hearth Management, has 15 communities across New York, Connecticut, Indiana, and Tennessee, and has entered into a portfolio-wide agreement with Viking Pure Solutions, a company specializing in electrochemically-activated cleaning and disinfecting.
“When we started hearing more and more reports about the effects of COVID – 19 and how it’s particularly contagious for those who are immunocompromised, including seniors, we knew we had to do something,” said Kevin Hunter, Hearth Management’s COO. “The safety of our residents is beyond crucial for us, and I couldn’t be more pleased with this partnership.”
Viking Pure Solutions’ sanitation technology uses electrolyzed water to kill bacteria, fungus, and viruses. It also prevents micro-organisms from creating a resistance to any of its disinfectants. Unlike many popular cleaning products, Viking Pure’s system is completely non-toxic, is registered by the EPA to produce solution as a Hospital Grade Disinfectant and has proven efficacy against viruses similar to COVID-19.
“I’m confident that electrolyzed water is an efficient way to sanitize our communities to the best of our ability,” added Hunter. “Frequent hand washing, thorough staff training, and compliance with CDC guidelines are still top priority to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus, but our residents deserve more, and it’s our responsibility to give it to them.”
