General

To properly perform the process the of sanitizing a business or residence, it takes between 1-2 hours.

These products are environmentally friendly due to their properties – they are non-dissipating, non-leaching and non-migrating away from the applied substrate. It cannot be absorbed by microorganisms or by humans.

Yes

After Advanced Sanitizing completes our three-step disinfecting process, we will ensure that the area and surfaces are as clean and sanitizing as effectively possible.  However, there is no guarantee, as with any situation, that outside contamination is 100% protected.  As with hospital operating rooms, they utilize these procedures, but continually disinfect to ensure any outside microbes or contaminants are eliminates.

No, you may have the service done one time or on a continual recurring basis.  Depending on the number of people that come in contact in your location, frequency of contact with outside contaminants, contact with an infected person, and level of desired sanitation will influence on the frequency that you want to have your location sanitized.   

Depending on the traffic flow and usage, we can recommend an optimum program to keep your location at a safe level.

No, not necessary.  When applying and utilizing the sanitation process, our technicians wear PPE and protective eyewear.  As rooms/offices/spaces are sanitized, people may move from one space to the other.

No. The product provides continuous antimicrobial protection that protects the surfaces. However, normal cleaning practices should be maintained.

Yes – it can be used on all surfaces, both porous and non-porous. This is a tremendous advantage over disinfectants which by federal law are only approved for hard, non-porous surfaces.

UVC Decontamination

UVC light disinfection is non-toxic.

UVC Light disinfection is an extremely effective form of disinfection.

UVC light disinfection kills pathogens without immunity.

UVC light kills 99.9% of all pathogens.

UVC light works at the 200nm-280nm wavelength.  It is a germicide and most effect against viruses.

It works because UV-C light is strong enough to destroy the genetic material -- either DNA or RNA -- of viruses and bacteria.

Dr. David Brenner says he ran the preliminary tests in his laboratory at Columbia University using UV light and found the UV energy "very efficient at killing the SARS-CoV-2 virus." Dr. Brenner is the Director of the Center for Radiological Research.

The tests involved exposing the SARS-CoV-2 virus to UV radiation in a secure location, then measuring how much of the virus was killed.

A substance or other agent that destroys harmful microorganisms

Yes.  As stated above, UVC disrupts the genetic material in viruses and bacteria.

UVC can be harmful to skin and eyes.  Therefore, this is why our UVC light disinfection machines are equipped with motion sensors that turn the machine off immediately, and our technicians wear UVC protective glasses as additional safety measures.

David Brenner, director of Columbia University’s Center for Radiological Research, said earlier this week that UVC light “can be safely used in public spaces, and it kills pathogens in the air before we can breathe them in.” “Most approaches focus on fighting the virus once it has gotten into the body.  It is also safe on all materials, plants and food."

Yes.  Just using disinfectants is not enough.  They help, but only about 50% effective.  UVC is 99.9% effective in killing viruses and bacteria.  UVC light machines, at higher and most useful wattages, are very expensive. 

Antimicrobial Coating

Yes. The unique properties permit near permanent bonding to any surface to which it is applied. Furthermore, this product will not give off any gases, leach onto other surfaces, or lose its strength over time. As long as the surface is kept clean with normal cleaning procedures, the surface will continue to fight any microbial growth.

Up to 90 days.

No. There is no odor.

Yes, ideally you want to disinfect the surfaces prior to application. Our process accomplishes that with both disinfectant and UVC light.
