The Importance of Bacteria Removal for Your Pet's Bed
March 28, 2016
Are you wondering why you need to take extra care of your pet's bed? If you are like most pet owners, your furry friend is a valued family member, with a bed, a blanket, some outfits, and a couple of toys. You take your pet outside to enjoy nature, to play with everything that catches its attention, or to enjoy a long and healthy walk. What you don't know is that your pet can easily get infected with bacteria and infested with fleas and ticks that are outside in the dirt and on tall grass, waiting for the opportunity to grab onto a passerby. Once in the house with your pet, the bacteria, germs, and even the fleas and the ticks spread into your home and hide in warm places like your pet's bed, toys, and even your furniture and linens.
No matter how many times you wash your pet's bed in the washing machine, bacteria and pests remain on the fabric, and the fleas and ticks find their way back to your four-legged friend, making your pet's life a real nightmare. So, if you see your dog or cat acting a bit nervous and scratching excessively, it is time to consider Germinator's sanitizing and disinfecting services for your home. Your furry friend will appreciate it!
Bacteria growth is highest in warm and humid places like mattresses, and your pet's bed is no exception to that. It makes an excellent habitat for ticks and fleas that can easily reattach to your pet, causing lots of discomforts. Even if a dog or cat has been treated for fleas and ticks, those pests can pass on severe diseases to you and the rest of your family members. With that being said, properly sanitizing and disinfecting your home is imperative for your whole family.
You are probably thinking that if washing your pet's bed regularly and bathing your dog is not enough, then what can you do to help keep your home bacteria-free and your two-legged and four-legged family members happy? Your best option is to use Germinator's patent-pending process!
Germinator's Patent-Pending Process
Germinator has developed a patent-pending process that provides a new generation of microbial protection for commercial businesses and residents.
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.
