You may be worried about the emergence of the latest Coronavirus (Covid19). This page is designed to provide information that will inform without alarm. At Enviro-Mist, we have a history of eradicating pathogens – from the newsworthy to the common – therefore we tend to be concerned with any organization that capitalizes on the public’s lack of knowledge regarding the world of pathogens.
Absolutely, and we use EPA registered technologies that have a perfect track record agains all pathogens it has been challenged with including: Ebola, SARS, C.diff, Staph, MRSA, H1N1, Norovirus, Salmonella, and others.
Although we can eradicate or deactivate any pathogen known to man, disinfecting firms cannot guarantee that you wont get sick. If killing germs were enough, we’d have no diseases at all. There are simply too many ways for a virus or bacteria to enter the body. Disinfecting is simply the most pro-active preventative step and the most potent corrective action to prevent the spread of disease on surfaces and air.
Understanding those guidelines, a disinfecting firm can be a part of your first steps as a preventative measure or the more serious corrective step after an occurrence.
After a thorough cleaning of your home or facility, the application of a bio-static coating can cut down the transmission of germs from surfaces.
The biostatic molecule is comprised of two parts – a polymer foot attached to a long chain of methyl group molecules. When applied to a surface, the polymer foot covalently bonds to the surface while the positively charged methyl chain points away from the surface. In effect, the biostatic coating resembles a series of needles bonded to a surface.
Through ionic attraction, negatively charged microbes are drawn onto the positively charged surface treated with Biostat.
Upon contact, the methyl group long chained molecules of the biostatic coating penetrate and compromise the lipid bilayer of cellular membrane. As a result of intercellular hydrostatic pressure the lipid bilayer fails and the microorganism is destroyed. Cellular death is achieved without the use of toxic or volatile chemicals.
have surfaces and/or air treated with an EPA registered product that specifically addresses what you are dealing with.
A corrective step is to have surfaces and/or air treated with an EPA registered product that specifically addresses what you are dealing with. Because Covid19 is a new virus, no specific EPA call-outs are available. There are a number of products listed as “approved for use”. Choose one that has a specific EPA call-out for SARS or MERS – since that is the closest match for disinfecting purposes.
After years of field experience and use, our corrective tool of choice is Steramist. Comprised of only 7.8% hydrogen peroxide while leaving no residue and remaining non-toxic, Steramist leaves behind only oxygen and humidity that evaporates quickly. Most importantly, it delivers the highest and most consistent efficacy—a six-log kill (99.9999%) on nearly all pathogens we encounter in the world of professional disinfecting and decontamination.
