Applied Silver and the Carillon Miami Wellness Resort have announced a partnership to launch a ground-breaking textile treatment programme that will make all washable textiles on property antimicrobial. The programme has had significant success in healthcare facilities and with sports teams and has now been extended to hospitality.
Applied Silver Inc created the first-of-its-kind high tech product SilvaClean® the only EPA registered technology that makes all laundered material antimicrobial post-laundry. The company has now announced a partnership with Carillon Miami Wellness Resort, a world-class beachfront health resort and luxury spa in Miami Beach, to launch a groundbreaking textile care program and help establish a new standard of cleanliness for the hospitality industry. The Carillon Miami becomes the first resort in the world to introduce SilvaClean into its housekeeping protocols.
The smart IoT platform seamlessly infuses textiles with silver ions during the final rinse cycle of the wash. Once laundry is treated with the technology, it becomes active and continuously kills harmful pathogenic bacteria, mold and mildew that come in contact with the textiles, protecting users from risk of associated infections. The Carillon Miami will utilise SilvaClean for cleaning guestroom launderable soft surfaces, the resort’s launderable uniforms and other items such as spa robes, towels, and restaurant linens.
“Carillon Miami has invested in state-of-the-art technology throughout the resort, in light of the current climate, to ensure our guests receive the utmost care while on property,” said Tammy Pahel, vice president of spa and wellness operations at Carillon Miami Wellness Resort. “We are proud to partner with Applied Silver to be the first resort to incorporate SilvaClean into our housekeeping service and to treat all linens and laundry items with the revolutionary technology when preparing our accommodations for guests’ arrival and throughout their stay.”
“Holistic approaches in wellness are of paramount importance to public health well-being today and in the future,” said Dr Priya Balachandran, chief operating officer at Applied Silver. “SilvaClean’s unique ability to address soft surfaces in closest contact with guests and staff is transformative to the hospitality experience. SilvaClean is an invisible technology that combats the invisible enemy, pathogens at work in our environment. We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Carillon Miami and help advance their leadership role in the health and wellness space.”
The science behind SilvaClean is the broad-spectrum antimicrobial properties of silver. Silver has been in use since ancient times in medical applications (sutures, dental filling and other) as well as in homes (silver goblets). Applied Silver has been advancing this science for current applications for businesses with plans to make the technology available for all consumers in the near future. Recently, Wilson School of Textiles at NC State found that SilvaClean treated textiles outperformed fabrics woven with antimicrobial fibres, like silver threads.
