The pandemic has made us all more aware of the importance of keeping a clean, well-sanitized environment. We've all learned just how quickly a virus can change the way we live our lives. One of the sectors hit hardest by COVID-19 is the educational sector, including schools and daycares. As our kids return to these educational facilities, school sanitizing and disinfecting is on everybody's mind. Here We Grow Children's Learning Center wanted to take a proactive stance to create a cleaner and more hygienic environment for kids and staff, so they hired Germinator Lubbock to help them make it happen. Kathy Sisson, the owner and director of the center, says that the virus has had a negative impact on her business as well as the lives of many of her clients. She stated how happy she was to see our disinfection specialists arrive on time to help make her facility more hygienic for the children, parents, and staff.
Germinator's patent-pending methodology is the most unique and cost-effective means of providing enhanced antimicrobial protection for businesses and residences. The company first tests surfaces for ATP using a luminometer to detect light that can come from cellular activity. This measurement immediately provides the level of clean on a surface.
The next step is the application of Germinator's Genesis surface treatment. Genesis is a one-step cleaner and broad-spectrum sanitizer and disinfectant treatment that harnesses the power of hypochlorous acid (HOCl). 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's 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.
Following Genesis, Germinator applies its Shield, a water-based quaternary ammonium compound that imparts a durable bacteriostatic finish. It is EPA-registered as effective against mold, mildew, algae and odor-causing bacteria. This application creates an invisible barrier that helps combat 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.
It's important to keep a clean, sanitized and disinfected environment. Germinator Mobile Sanitizing & Disinfecting is ideal for commercial establishments of all kinds, but it is especially good for school sanitizing and disinfecting. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in their Green Cleaning, Sanitizing, and Disinfecting: A Curriculum for Early Care and Education, "Children are more sensitive to the health effects of toxic chemicals." The guide goes on to state that "researchers estimate that 5% of childhood cancer and 30% of childhood asthma are related to chemical exposures." Much of this comes from traditional cleaning products that contain toxic chemicals. Germinator's HOCl sanitizing and disinfecting solution uses no harsh fumes or chemicals.
Upholding the highest standards of sanitization and disinfecting, Germinator makes claims that are scientifically supported and within EPA regulations. In an effort to research and further validate its practice of sanitizing and disinfecting surfaces, the company recently created the Germinator Scientific Advisory Board. The board is made up of key leaders such as Dr. Roscoe M. Moore, Jr. —who was an Assistant to the United States Surgeon General for five administrations.
Our team visited Here We Grow Children's Learning Center and spent some time applying our patent-pending process to all of the rooms in the building, toys, playground equipment, office equipment, and anywhere that would be susceptible to germs, bacteria and viruses. We covered the open spaces and made sure to get the areas that are often overlooked. Our electrostatic sprayers are highly effective for this purpose. As always, our team made sure to follow any protocols in place regarding the spread of germs and bacteria while we went about making the daycare cleaner and more hygienic.
Germinator provided by J Ferg Pros is proud to be able to serve the Lubbock area. We understand that these are unusual times we're living and that parents are especially concerned with sending their children back to school or putting them in daycare settings. Proper school sanitizing and disinfecting can alleviate a lot of the anxiety and fear these days. Here We Grow Children's Learning Center has taken measures to make their facility as clean and hygienic as possible for parents, children, and teachers.
As we move forward, cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting should be a part of our routine. Germinator, when used in conjunction with regular cleaning, is a highly effective way to help reduce the threat of germs, bacteria and viruses on surfaces. With more schools and daycares stepping up and taking proactive steps toward keeping their classrooms sanitized and disinfected, parents can now have greater peace of mind with Germinator.
