Some companies tend to take it slow in December, but not Germinator. We received a call from Alden Properties Corp to help them sanitize and disinfect their offices, and we got to work right away. With coronavirus cases continuing to rise, the company wanted to thoroughly sanitize and disinfect its facility's surfaces before the new year. We treated the facility with our patent-pending sanitizing and disinfecting process—from desks, computer keyboards, and office equipment to chairs, elevators, hallways, bathrooms, and more.
Alden Properties Corp. is aware that office buildings are high-traffic spaces that are at risk of spreading germs, bacteria and viruses. They also know that Germinator's HOCL solution is not only on the EPA N list of products determined to meet the criteria for use against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, but also kills a wide range of bacteria and viruses on hard, non-porous surfaces without the use or harsh chemicals. Providing a clean and hygienic space for clients and staff is more important than ever before, which is why Alden Properties Corp. put their trust in Germinator to help protect their facility with our office building sanitizing and disinfecting program.
Germinator Miami's Office Building Sanitizing and Disinfecting Program follows our patent-pending process:
Step 1 – Test Surfaces:
We first test your surfaces for ATP using a luminometer to detect light that can come from cellular activity. This measurement immediately tells us the level of cleanliness on your surfaces.
Step 2 – Application of Genesis Surface Treatment:
Genesis is a one-step cleaner and broad-spectrum sanitizer and disinfectant treatment that harnesses the power of HOCl (hypochlorous acid) solution. Derived from naturally occurring minerals, Genesis not only eliminates odors at their source, but kills a wide range of bacteria including Staphylococcus aureus, MRSA, Salmonella enterica, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and viruses including norovirus, rotavirus, and adenovirus on hard, non-porous, environmental surfaces. It meets the Association of Official Agricultural Chemists (AOAC) germicidal spray standards for Hospital-Grade Disinfection and is on the EPA N List of products determined to meet the criteria for use against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. As a result, this treatment will eliminate bacteria and viruses that may reside in your environment without the use of harsh chemicals or fumes.
Step 3 – Application of Bacteriostatic Finish:
The shield is a water-based quaternary ammonium compound that imparts a durable bacteriostatic finish to a wide range of non-food contact surfaces. It is EPA-registered as effective against the growth of mold, mildew, algae, and odor-causing bacteria. This application creates an invisible barrier that combats deterioration and discoloration and promotes freshness for up to three months.
The Genesis and Shield products are applied by using an electrostatic sprayer, which is the most efficient and effective means of delivering the products to the intended application sites.
Step 4 – Retest Surfaces:
After our surface treatment and protectant services, we retest to ensure the surfaces have achieved the intended results.
Alden Properties Corp. saw firsthand how, even after their thorough cleaning, ATP tests from an elevator button and a computer mouse showed a reading of 1390 RLU and 191 RLU, respectively. This reading is clearly over 100 RLUs, which means their surfaces were in desperate need of proper sanitizing and disinfecting. RLU is an acronym for relative light units. It shows the level of cellular activity on a surface. The higher the reading, the more need for cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting. Ideal ATP levels are between 1 to 100. Anything over 100 signals the need for more effective cleaning efforts. After we completed our Office Building Sanitizing and Disinfecting Program, Alden Properties Corp. could verify that their surfaces were at a hospital-grade level of clean. We tested the same elevator button and the computer mouse, and the readings were at 10 RLUs and 6 RLUs.
Alden Properties Corp. felt confident they could give their employees and staff greater peace of mind in knowing that their environment was thoroughly sanitized and disinfected by professionals using EPA-registered products.
