Residential Sanitizing and Disinfecting Can Help You Create an Allergen-Free Home
May 30, 2016
Asthmatic people typically have more sensitive airways, which can react to things called triggers. Triggers can cause asthma-related symptoms such as wheezing, coughing, a runny nose or itchy eyes. When an asthmatic person inhales an allergen, their airways may tighten up and produce too much mucus, causing difficulty breathing. Unfortunately, there is no cure for asthma. This fact causes concern for many people who suffer from asthma, but the truth is that people with asthma can live relatively normal lives–they just have to make a few changes to their lifestyle.
The goal of asthma treatment is to reduce the symptoms to a minimum with the lowest amount of medication. The first thing that has to be done to achieve this is becoming aware of the sources of asthma triggers. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Americans spend 93% of their time indoors on average. With so much time spent indoors, it would be more than logical that asthmatics maintain a hygienic indoor environment. This is easier said than done. Indoor asthma triggers include household dust, tobacco smoke, nitrogen dioxide, chemical odors, and others. Of the triggers mentioned, the one that is the hardest to control is dust. Why? One particle of dust can contain pet dander, dead cockroaches, dust mites, and mold spores, and all of those can be asthma triggers. Vacuuming, sweeping, and even dusting can actually make it worse, not to mention the use of harsh chemicals. An effective way to create an asthma-free home that feels and smells clean is with Residential Sanitizing and Disinfecting
By sanitizing and disinfecting the items in your home, you can rest assured that you will be creating a more hygienic environment for you and your family. Also, your asthma symptoms will possibly improve. But what is residential sanitizing and disinfecting and how is it done using Germinator's patent-pending process? We'll go into that in detail below.
Germinator's Patent-Pending Process
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. After Germinator's surface treatment and protectant services, the company retests ATP levels to help ensure the surfaces have achieved the intended results.
