How Our Barrier Technology Can Keep Your Employees Healthy and Working This Winter

Posted in Blog, Coronavirus Disinfection Services

The winter months pose major challenges for businesses in all industries. In addition to weather-related concerns, flu season is in full force this time of year, and other contagious diseases can also run rampant as people huddle indoors for extended periods of time. Add a global pandemic into this mix, (COVID-19) and the upcoming winter might look more and more like a disaster waiting to happen. However, there are several precautions businesses can take to keep their people safe, healthy, and productive all season long. While standard office cleaning efforts alone won’t get rid of harmful microorganisms, certain methods of disinfection can keep these harmful actors at bay. More specifically, let’s discuss how our antimicrobial barrier technology by Pro-Techs® can keep your employees healthy and working this winter.

How to Keep Employees Healthy

A Unique Approach to Disinfection

Traditional forms of disinfection (i.e. spraying and wiping surfaces), while effective, can be time-consuming and require an inordinate amount of resources to keep up with all the potential threats. Barrier technology, on the other hand, uses compressed air and electric charges to adhere to any and all surfaces in order to kill a large spectrum of microorganisms, including viruses, bacteria, and fungi. This approach to disinfection is sustainable, economical, 99.9% effective, and environmentally-friendly (non-toxic, odorless, colorless, durable, and non-leaching). In this way, investing in barrier technology is perhaps the most efficient way to keep your surfaces disinfected this winter and beyond.

Killing and Preventing a Wide Range of Microorganisms

As just mentioned, the Pro-Techs antimicrobial barrier technology prevents the growth of a broad spectrum of bacteria, virus, and fungi including but not limited to:
  • Listeria
  • Gastroenteritis
  • Salmonella
  • E. coli
  • Staph
  • MRSA
  • C. diff
  • Mold
  • Mildew
  • Fungi
  • Yeast
  • Odors
  • Other algae, bacteria, and fungi
The list goes on much further than the microbes listed here. Still, this truncated list paints a clear picture of how effective this barrier technology really is. And while influenza and COVID-19 might not be included in this spectrum, keeping your workplace clear of these other viruses, bacteria, and fungi will help reduce the risk of employee illness overall and possibly diminish potential complications that might arise from contracting multiple diseases. Also, your employees, guests, and customers will feel more comfortable entering your facility if they’re made aware of your efforts to disinfect every surface this way.

Long-Lasting Protection

Winter might feel like it takes up more than half the year, but it’s technically only three months long. Fortunately, when properly applied, antimicrobial barrier technology can remain useful on surfaces for as long as 12 months (even longer in some cases). This saves your company time, money, and energy regarding your disinfection efforts. That said, here at The Budd Group, we repeat our barrier applications and other electrostatic disinfection services about every six months (or more frequently) to ensure ongoing and effective protection. Either way, you can rest assured that your people will be well guarded from potential microscopic threats all winter long.
