Parents are under enough stress these days as they return to work and have to send their children back to schools and daycares. The Fun House Day Care & Preschool understands this. They wanted to be sure parents were comfortable with where their children would be spending a great deal of time, so in addition to practicing social distancing guidelines, the daycare decided to take extra steps to help ensure they were offering children a sanitary environment. They contacted Germinator Bangor and asked us to bring our Day Care Sanitizing to the facility to make it ready for the children and for the staff for a quick reopening. Pete Philbrick, the owner of Germinator Bangor, was happy to be part of helping The Fun House Day Care & Preschool welcome kids back.
What Makes Germinator Mobile Sanitizing & Disinfecting So Unique?
Germinator uses a patent-pending methodology and is the most unique and cost-effective means of providing enhanced antimicrobial protection for businesses and residences. We first test surfaces for ATP using a luminometer to detect light that can come from cellular activity. This measurement immediately determines the level of clean on a surface.
The next step is the application of our 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, we apply our 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. After we apply our surface treatment and protectant services, we retest ATP levels to ensure the surfaces have achieved the intended results.
Unlike many chemical-based sanitizing products found on store shelves, Germinator doesn't put children at risk because their HOCl product contains no harsh chemicals or fumes. An (EPA) guideline entitled Green Cleaning, Sanitizing, and Disinfecting: A Curriculum for Early Care and Education states that ". . . very young children are particularly sensitive to the effects of toxic chemicals" and that "5% of childhood cancer and 30% of childhood asthma" is due to these chemicals, many of which are found in products traditionally used to clean schools and daycares. Germinator, to uphold the highest standards of sanitization and disinfecting, 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.
Germinator Bangor sent our field specialists to The Fun House Day Care & Preschool and went to work on the facility. We applied our patent-pending process to every room in the facility. We also applied it to toys and playground equipment, office equipment, and to all of the often-overlooked places where children and staff make contact.
We are living in a time when proper cleaning and sanitizing is of the utmost importance. We're living in a time when parents have a lot of choices to make regarding their children. Being able to have confidence about where your children spend the majority of their time should be a given. The Fun House Day Care & Preschool knows parents need to be able to go to work knowing their children are comfortable. That's one of the main reasons they chose Germinator Bangor for their daycare sanitizing and disinfecting needs.
At Germinator Bangor, we are so proud to be able to bring area businesses and residents the peace of mind they need to get back to living life with confidence and the knowledge that their children are in clean and hygienic environments. We're proud of the quality of the Germinator brand and its effectiveness in helping to reduce the threat of germs, bacteria, and viruses.
While we are all eager to get back to a "normal" life again, we need to do it right and with more emphasis on reducing the threat of germs and bacteria. The pandemic has shown us how quickly everything can be turned upside down. The Fun House Day Care & Preschool welcomed their kids back to a hygienic environment and that parents can be confident about it.
