The best and friendliest barbershop in town that always welcomes walk-ins was in a bit of a tight spot. With the COVID-19 pandemic, many people feel insecure about working in places with high traffic or that demand proximity beyond the approved 6 feet of proper social distancing measures.
That's why Freshmen Barber Shop's employees felt concerned to go to work. And for this barbershop's owner, it's very important that his employees feel comfortable in their workspace. He thought that it was better to close down for a day to get his barbershop sprayed than to have his employees start missing work but he didn't know how fast Germinator could respond.
Freshmen Barber Shop's owner decided to call Germinator Miami to help him get back into action and we received their call at 9 pm. At 7 am the next day we were already knocking on their door, ready to provide them with our commercial sanitizing and disinfecting program. We got right to work with 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 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 workplace 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 mold, mildew, algae, and odor-causing bacteria. This application creates an invisible barrier that combats deterioration and discoloration and promotes freshness for up to 3 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.
Freshmen Barber Shop's initial ATP testing reading was of 265 relative light units (RLUs). Even though they had thoroughly cleaned the day before, their surfaces' high cellular activity reading showed that they needed help on properly sanitizing and disinfecting their barbershop. Germinator's commercial sanitizing and disinfecting program took care of that. In less than 2 hours we were retesting their surfaces after our services. The ATP monitor showed a reading of 17 RLUs which is a hospital-grade result.
Needless to say that the owner of Freshmen Barbershop was extremely happy. Not only did he experience firsthand the results of our commercial sanitizing and disinfecting program, but he didn't have to close the shop for a day or even hours. All businesses are working extremely hard to overcome the economic recession brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, and we know that being productive and working every day makes all the difference. That's why we made it our priority to help protect this barbershop ASAP.
Freshmen Barbershop experienced what it was to have a commercial sanitizing and disinfecting service provided by a company with knowledge and experience, a high level of professionalism, that's cost-effective, and using only EPA-registered products. A company's whose Scientific Advisory Board has further validated the most efficient patent-pending process to give the best commercial sanitizing and disinfecting service.
The Freshmen Barbershop team got back to work with greater peace of mind knowing that they were in a properly sanitized and disinfected environment. Furthermore, they could share this peace of mind with their customers. Assuring everyone who came in for a haircut or to trim their beard that the barbershop had been sanitized and disinfected by Germinator.
