Going back to school after the pandemic has many parents, teachers, and students feeling anxious. There are a lot of questions regarding the cleanliness of schools as they begin to reopen. One school district, in particular, the Carrollton-Farmers Branch Independent School District, decided to take a proactive stance and hired Germinator provided by J Ferg Pros to help them protect their facilities with Germinator's services.
We got the call for the job and couldn't wait to help the school district with its school sanitizing and disinfecting needs. Over the period of one week, we sanitized and disinfected the entire district. Our goal was to give the district the most affordable service possible and deliver on the same commitment to excellence we're known for. We undertook the job to give the school district confidence in knowing they could welcome students back to class.
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.
Even more important, especially for school sanitizing and disinfecting, is Germinator's commitment to providing an HOCl product that contains no harsh chemicals or fumes. So many schools use chemical-based products that can cause harm. According to the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) guide guide entitled Green Cleaning, Sanitizing, and Disinfecting: A Curriculum for Early Care and Education, children are more susceptible to health problems caused by toxic chemicals and "5% of childhood cancer and 30% of childhood asthma are related to chemical exposures," with many of these exposures coming from school settings. That's why we're so proud of the Germinator product. Upholding the highest sanitization and disinfecting standards, Germinator makes claims that are scientifically supported and within EPA regulations. In an effort 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.
At J Ferg Pros, we have been a trusted part of providing home repair services throughout Texas. When we decided to add sanitizing and disinfecting to our services, we went with Germinator because we recognized the brand's value.
We wanted to provide the best sanitizing and disinfecting service we could arrange for residents of Texas. Germinator Mobile Sanitizing & Disinfecting is the best way to sanitize and disinfect schools, daycares, medical facilities, office buildings, restaurants, and anywhere the people gather.
For the Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD, we thoroughly covered every square-foot of the campuses. At Ranchview High School, we sanitized and disinfected 400,000 square feet in four hours. Throughout the district, we sanitized and disinfected hallways, gymnasiums, cafeterias, classrooms, bathrooms, offices, furniture, and equipment. We sanitized and treated all of the major touchpoints.
