With children going back into the classroom this school year, many parents and educators have expressed concerns regarding COVID-19. When COVID first hit, schools had to shut down right along with many businesses, forcing children to continue their school year at home. Schools are open now and children are attending classes on-site. To keep the environment more optimal for students, parents and staff, many schools have implemented special procedures and have intensified their cleaning routines. Veritas Academy has decided to take extra steps toward keeping its staff as well as students and their families free of worry by hiring Germinator of the Low Country to come in and apply our School Sanitizing and Disinfecting Services. Germinator's process is an effective, efficient, affordable way to help maximize hygiene in schools.
Germinator utilizes a patent-pending process to sanitize and disinfect surfaces as well as provide an invisible barrier that combats deterioration and discoloration and promotes freshness for up to 3 months. 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. The next step - Genesis - is a cleaner and broad-spectrum sanitizer and disinfectant treatment that harnesses the power of HOCl (hypochlorous acid) solution. Derived from naturally occurring minerals, it kills a wide range of bacteria and viruses on hard, non-porous, environmental surfaces without the use of harsh chemicals or fumes. The third step applies the Shield, which 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 three months.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency in their Green Cleaning, Sanitizing, and Disinfecting: A Curriculum for Early Care and Education, children are more susceptible to the chemicals found in many commercial sanitizing products. The guide states that "5% of childhood cancer and 30% of childhood asthma are related to chemical exposures." Many of these exposures happen due to the use of toxic cleaning and sanitizing products typically used by schools. Germinator is very proud to be able to say that our HOCI sanitizing and disinfecting solution does not use harsh chemicals or fumes.
Upholding the highest sanitization and disinfecting standards, Germinator's products are EPA registered as effective for their intended uses and further validated by our own Scientific Board comprised of top medical professionals, including Dr. Roscoe M. Moore, a former Assistant Surgeon General for five administrations.
The pandemic has changed the way all of us think about germs, bacteria, and viruses. We've all seen the devastation an out-of-control virus can cause. COVID-19 has changed the way we live, work, and play. It's made a huge impact on the way we educate our children. Now that kids are back in school, we all must do our part to keep it that way. The best line of defense is to take a proactive stance and take the best measures available to us to go the extra mile. Germinator Mobile Sanitizing & Disinfecting is the ideal way to do that.
Germinator of the Low Country sent a team to Veritas Academy at the school's request. We applied our patent-pending process to the classrooms, the playground, cafeteria, bathrooms, hallways, and offices. We made sure to cover all of the major touchpoints, including walls, light switches, sinks and faucets, office equipment, and sports equipment. Our products allowed us to cover both wide-open areas and hard-to-reach areas that are often overlooked during the cleaning process.
School sanitizing and disinfecting is more important than ever before. As we move forward, we're going to need to be more aware of our surroundings and how they can affect us. At Germinator of the Low Country, we've helped a lot of business owners and organizations open their doors again with peace of mind and the confidence of knowing they've done everything possible to create a clean and hygienic environment for customers and employees. We are proud to be a part of the community and its efforts to be more mindful of creating and maintaining hygienic environments.
