Kwalu announces a joint marketing venture with Clorox Healthcare®


Kwalu, a leading provider of healthcare furniture, announces a joint marketing venture with Clorox Healthcare®, a provider of healthcare disinfecting products. There is mounting evidence to suggest that environmental surface contamination plays an important role in the transmission of several key healthcare associated pathogens including Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus (VRE), Acinetobacter, Norovirus, and Clostridium difficile (C.diff).

Together Kwalu and Clorox Healthcare® will target the reduction of healthcare associated pathogens by combining Clorox Healthcare’s® portfolio of disinfectants with Kwalu’s non-porous furnishings geared for a wide variety of healthcare settings. Kwalu’s non-coated and non-porous surfaces have been proven to stand-up to rigorous cleaning protocols and are guaranteed for 10 years. Kwalu’s surfaces have shown compatibility with all of the Clorox Healthcare® disinfection chemistries, including the Clorox Healthcare® Bleach Germicidal Wipes and Hydrogen Peroxide Cleaner Disinfectant Wipes.

Environmental cleaning is critical to the eradication of harmful bacteria that are found on surfaces within hospitals and senior living communities. The combination of products and protocols can result in effective surface disinfection, leading to the reduction of pathogens that put patients and residents at risk.

By collaborating with Clorox Healthcare®, Kwalu intends to promote the Infection Prevention Patient Room with its patented polymer based surfaces, including patient room chairs, recliners, bedside cabinets, guest chairs, sink surrounds, sleeper sofas, headboards, footboards and wall protection.

Bundling Kwalu’s furnishing with Clorox Healthcare® disinfectants takes the guess work out of implementing robust cleaning and disinfection protocols, and helps prevent the spread of harmful bacteria through cross transmission.
