Not so surprisingly, there's been a surge in business owners seeking professional sanitizing and disinfecting services as the country opens up again. The pandemic has made all of us more cautious when it comes to cleanliness. Business owners, however, aren't the only ones who have begun to take advantage of professional sanitizing and disinfecting services. At Germinator Bangor, we've seen our share of residential customers too. Recently, a couple contacted us for residential sanitizing and disinfecting services for a new home. The couple, Mike & Tonya McDonald of Hermon, recently purchased a new home and wanted to be proactive about cleanliness and sanitizing. The McDonald's, like so many people across the country, wanted the confidence of knowing they had taken all of the measures they could to help reduce the threat of germs, bacteria and viruses. Having us visit their home gave them peace of mind.
At Germinator Bangor, we are proud to be able to serve residential customers with the same exceptional service that we provide our commercial customers. We understand the level of stress and concern the pandemic has put on everybody. Many homeowners are turning to Germinator for home sanitizing and disinfecting services to bring an extra level of protection to their families. While Germinator Mobile Sanitizing and Disinfecting doesn't replace a regular cleaning routine, it compliments regular cleaning and helps ensure a better home environment.
What to Expect from Germinator
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 clean 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:
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.
Germinator Mobile Sanitizing & Disinfecting is the right choice for home sanitizing and disinfecting for many reasons. Knowledge and experience, product efficacy, professionalism, and cost-effectiveness are just some of those reasons. We take your concerns seriously and will always go above and beyond to ensure we help you reduce the threat of germs, bacteria and viruses in your home.
When our team arrived at the McDonald home, we immediately got to work. We went through the entire house, applying our HOCI disinfectant solution to every room and all of the surfaces. We followed this up with our EPA-registered Germinator Shield, which is highly effective against the growth of mold, mildew, algae, and odor-causing bacteria. The McDonald's were happy with the service and felt good about their home. Before leaving, we made arrangements to revisit the home in 90 days for a follow-up as part of our quarterly protection program, which provides our customers with ongoing peace of mind.
There's no doubt that the pandemic has made us all more aware of our surroundings. For many homeowners, using chemical-based, potentially toxic cleaning and sanitizing products is not an option. Those customers are looking for a home sanitizing and disinfecting service they can trust that provides a better way of sanitizing and disinfecting the home environment. We are proud to say that Germinator is that option.
Upholding the highest standards of sanitization and disinfecting, Germinator only makes claims that are scientifically supported and within EPA regulations. 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.
