GoldShield South Africa

Care Homes

Goldshield®’s unique antimicrobial barrier technology provides unrivalled cleaning and disinfection armoury in the fight against infection and potential outbreaks.

Protect your Business Against Norovirus & The Rise of “Superbugs”

The Residential and Care Home sector relies heavily on the quality of the aesthetic appearance and cleanliness of the environment. Residents, families and staff expect to see a home that is clean and moreover free from harmful microorganisms. Goldshield technology can provide assurance that the facility is protected to the highest standards.

Residential and care home facilities will also have kitchens sanitary facilities and specialised areas such as physiotherapy, treatment rooms and even in some cases a Gym etc. which also require the same high standards of cleanliness and Goldshield products can be used to clean and protect all of these facilities. This expectation is vital to the welfare of those in the Residential and Care Home at any one time and also to the success of the business.

“Cleaning alone does not kill potentially harmful microorganisms such as Norovirus the “winter vomiting” virus, which can strike at any time and can have potentially serious consequences in the Residential Care Home sector.”

Many normal cleaning products do not contain any form of biocide relying on physical removal of soils and microorganisms as visible cleanliness is the main objective. Even if they do contain some form of biocide, none can compete with the long-lasting effect of using Goldshield® known as “residual protection”, protecting surfaces for potentially days after a single application, which is completely safe to residents, patients, staff and visitors.

Sanitary areas, gyms and any activity where there is a high potential for harmful microbes to be transferred onto surfaces and subsequently to residents, patients, staff or visitors become a potential risk of infection.

Using Goldshield® will provide your residents, patients, staff or visitors with “peace of mind” that your care home is not just visibly clean but microbiologically clean thereby providing a safer environment for your residents, staff and guests.

Protecting your residents, patients, staff or visitors is vital in the control of Norovirus and other harmful microbes. To combat this, Goldshield® provide a hand sanitiser that will protect hands for up to 24 hours with a single application.

The Goldshield® range comes in ready to use spray bottles, wipes, hand sanitisers, or in a format (concentrate) that you can make up yourself.  Goldshield® is easy to use, non-toxic and does not require any changes to how you clean. Goldshield® will also provide training and after sales service if any extra help or advice is required.
