Another school year has come and gone. Though some areas within your educational facility will be used throughout the off-season for summer classes, staff meetings, and other events, there will be much more space and time to tackle important renovations over the summer months. Deep cleaning and disinfection are among the most important tasks to accomplish during this time, especially in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Even if your cleaning staff and/or services have done a great job keep...

The Omicron Variant

Two years after the COVID-19 pandemic first became a global menace, the world still faces wave after wave of this unfortunate disease. Though some experts believe we’re finally approaching the endemic phase of COVID-19 in many regions (i.e., it becomes a regular but manageable disease like the flu), the fight isn’t over yet. The good news is that COVID-19 has already become much easier to manage thanks to highly effective vaccines and treatments. That said, new strains of SARS-CoV-2 continue...

It’s now been just over two years since the COVID-19 pandemic began its first wave in the U.S. Today, the picture looks much different than it did back in 2020 – and in many ways, the picture is better. Researchers have learned much more about the SARS-CoV-2 virus and its variants, highly effective vaccines and treatments have been developed and widely disseminated, and we’ve seen a steady decrease in COVID-related illness and death nationwide. That said, the pandemic isn’t over. The hig...

There’s no denying that the COVID-19 pandemic has damaged countless lives and businesses over the past two years. Despite all of this devastation, however, some good has come from these challenging times. Today, schools and businesses are more committed than ever before to maintaining clean, sanitary, safe facilities. This pandemic has also allowed breakthrough technologies to come to the forefront, including PRO-Techs® antimicrobial solutions. While there’s still plenty to learn about COVI...

Many things have changed in the U.S. since March of 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic forced many businesses to temporarily or permanently shut their doors, leaving many people out of a job and others to adjust to a work-from-home lifestyle. Nearly two years later, COVID-19 is still a part of our lives, but we’ve learned a lot along the way. Now, much of the world has access to effective vaccines and treatments, and the newest variant (Omicron) – while more transmissible than its earlier counterpa...

Last summer, as vaccinations were readily available and Americans spent less time indoors, COVID-19 cases rapidly declined, and many people felt as if the pandemic that began early in 2020 was finally coming to an end. Unfortunately, viruses like SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes the illness COVID-19) are difficult to eradicate completely because of their ability to mutate over time. While some of these mutations don’t amount to much, others can turn into “variants of concern” due to their...

Over the past year and a half, we’ve all become more conscious of the air we breathe. Many of us have found comfort gathering outdoors, breathing in the fresh air. As temperatures drop, however, most people will have little choice but to spend most of their time indoors once more. Spending long periods inside can cause illness and discomfort if the indoor air becomes stale. Fortunately, there are many ways to improve indoor air quality (IAQ), namely through different methods of air purificatio...

When the COVID-19 pandemic first gained attention in late 2019/early 2020, few of us could have predicted that the world would still be battling SARS-CoV-2 and its variants over a year and a half later. Unfortunately, this modern pandemic is far from over, and experts believe that we may continue dealing with COVID-19 indefinitely. The good news, however, is that top medical researchers and providers have learned a lot about this novel coronavirus since it initially emerged. Today, we have acces...

Indoor air quality (IAQ) has come into greater focus over the past year and a half due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. After all, SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) and its variants primarily spread through the air. To keep their doors open, retain a steady stream of customers, and keep all occupants safe, many businesses have redoubled their efforts to purify the air inside their buildings. Improving IAQ is a multi-faceted effort, requiring an integrated approach between various syst...

We might not be able to see the air that surrounds us, but the quality of said air can nevertheless have a major impact on our health and well-being. A multitude of airborne contaminants can make their way inside buildings, including bacteria, dust, fungal spores, pollen, and, of course, viruses -- the pandemic triggered by SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes the disease known as COVID-19) continues to surge due to indoor air transmission (both airborne and aerosolized), and considering that most ...
