Why Should I Use the VPHP Method?

Feb 14 2018 Read 974 Times

H2O2 (hydrogen peroxide) is an oxidising agent which, when it comes into contact with micro-organisms, oxidises their cells or spores, thus deactivating them. It is however, a surface decontaminant so may not penetrate dirt and detritus; heavily soiled surfaces should be thoroughly cleaned prior to decontamination. This system is operated at ambient room temperature and relative humidity, without the need to significantly reduce humidity, which was traditionally required for fumigation bio-decontamination.

There is now a large body of published scientific research demonstrating that hydrogen peroxide vapour technology is able to inactivate bacteria, viruses and fungi, as well as reduce healthcare associated infections (HAIs), giving you assurance of a 6-log spore reduction.

Not only is VPHP/ VHP proven to be an effective decontaminator, it is a more rapid and convenient means of fumigation, reducing your equipment downtime, and is significantly less hazardous to health than traditional fumigation methods. Equipment and rooms which are subject to regular health and safety testing and validation, or need regular servicing should be decontaminated appropriately prior to these activities.

Many customers perform the fumigation themselves before a service, however, BPS Crowthorne, by encapsulating the expertise of sister company Crowthorne Hi-Tec Services, can save your time with an equipment bio-decontamination service (EBDS) and perform the fumigation prior to service ensuring a full and successful service with minimal disruption and downtime. BPS Crowthorne can also fumigate and service several cabinets at the same time. Not only does the EBDS service save you time, it also saves you the capital outlay of buying your own equipment.
