The airline industry was among the most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The resulting health crisis canceled hundreds of flights, and many airlines found themselves at the brink of collapse. There are still several limitations to regulate interstate and international air traffic, so it's no wonder that people find trouble deciding what's best for their travel plans. Now more than ever, they look towards the airline to help with choosing the best course of action.
The professional team at Havana Air aims to remain a source of support for travelers, and they know that a hygienic working environment is essential to continue serving customers promptly. With this in mind, the owners of Havana Air contacted Germinator Miami and we were quick to help them with our commercial sanitizing and disinfecting services.
With more than 25 years of experience in corporate travel and leisure travel planning, Havana Air has the knowledge and expertise to plan a trip around different circumstances, earning them the trust of several corporations all over the country. Being the main airline facilitating trips to Cuba in the US, Havana Air saw its operations hindered by the travel restrictions that were enforced early this year and started working even harder to provide the best service for their clients. The airline owners reduced office hours and gave employees the chance to work from home, but never stopped looking for new options to help protect their facilities for their staff and customers. They scheduled an appointment with Germinator Miami, and we immediately headed to their offices to apply our unique sanitizing and disinfecting program.
Germinator's 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.
Our field specialists brought Germinator's patent-pending process into each room and surface within the Havana Air offices. They put a special focus on communal areas to bring high-touch surfaces to a hospital grade level of cleanliness. The office's shared microwave serves as a prime example, with its ATP levels dropping from 148 relative light units (RLUs) to 23 RLUs. The disinfection process also made its way through work equipment and all the items within the storage area.
Germinator Miami offers a cost-effective alternative to help businesses maintain a comfortable environment. Through a process that's validated by its own verification component and Germinator's Scientific Advisory Board, companies in the Miami area can now help protect their facilities from the threat of germs, viruses, and bacteria. As a result, the staff at Havana Air will continue doing their best to facilitate the best traveling options for clients while having the reassurance of a clean and hygienic work environment, and clients will have greater peace of mind during consultations.
