How Does BioProtect Protection Work?

The active ingredient in BioProtect polymerizes to all surfaces and is both colorless and odorless.

Think of BioProtect as a layer of electrically charged swords.  When a microorganism comes in contact with the treated surface, the quaternary amine sword punctures the cell membrane and the remnants are then electrocuted.

Since nothing is transferred to the now dead cell, the antimicrobial does not lose it’s strength and the sword is now ready for the next cell to contact it.  (NOTE: Normal cleaning of the treated surfaces is necessary in order for the BioProtect   antimicrobials to continue their effectiveness.  Dirt buildup,  paint, dead microbes, etc. will cover the treatment prohibiting it from killing microorganisms.)

* According to the ISSA 'Value of Clean' white paper (2012): proper hygiene programs can:

  • Reduce the probability of infection for common cold and influenza by approximately 80 percent
  • Can reduce the number of surfaces contaminated with viruses by 62 percent
  • CONSEQUENTLY...has been shown to reduce absenteeism by as much as 46 percent

The Healthier Environmental Living Program (HELP) - Let The Healthier Environmental Living Program Improve Your Bottom Line

What we know!  The United States Environmental Protection Agency has listed indoor air quality as one of the top five environmental threats facing public health.  We know from the news that our aging water infrastructure cannot be depended on to deliver clean safe water.  In 2104 the World Health Organization, White House and the European Union went public with the growing threat of microbial resistance to antibiotics.  With antibiotics becoming ineffective, it will again be possible to die from simple bacterial infections that were treatable last year.   With people spending 90% of their time indoors,  the need to engineer residential spaces to limit the spread of pathogens becomes more and more important.  We do this with clean surfaces, clean hands, clean air and clean water.  Additionally we know environmental conditions impact employee performance and your business with hidden costs from absenteeism and presenteeism.   Indoor air quality reduces productivity.  CO2 build up within your facility reduce cognitive function.  Most facility engineers focus on energy cost.  Absenteeism cost are greater than energy cost per person in your facility.  When you add the cost of presenteeism the cost of health really dwarfs the cost of energy.  We move cleaning and maintenance to a new level by introducing persistent cleaning technologies.  

How we fix the problem:

  • BioProtect for surfaces.  BioProtect when applied to a surface provides a long term bio-static layer of protections

  • Sanders Filters are used in the home on the HVAC system and can be configured for point of use systems.  Filter provide sub-micron filtration from .1 micron and up

  • Pure Hand hand sanitizer provides a safe none flammable that doesn't dry out the skin

  • Point of Use water filters for the showers and sinks filtering 99.99999% bacteria reduction

  • BioProtect for laundry.  We can make the patients clothing, sheets and blankets antimicrobial.  All of which can be done in the home or commerical laundry 

Sick building syndrome (SBS) is a phenomenon affecting building occupants who claim to experience acute health and comfort effects that appear to be linked to time spent in a building, but where no specific illness or cause can be identified. SBS is also used interchangeably with "building-related symptoms", which orients the name of the condition around patients rather than a "sick" building. A 1984 World Health Organization (WHO) report suggested up to 30% of new and remodeled buildings worldwide may be subject of complaints related to poor indoor air quality.  rewrite pulled from wiki verbatim.  (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2796751/)

   

Office - Healthier Environmental Living Program (HELP).

Our program addresses surface hygiene, air quality and water hygiene within your facility.  Our measured quantified system evaluates air, water and surface hygiene to combat the hidden cost of presenteeism and absenteeism.  The insurance industry estimates that the annual cost of absenteeism per employee in your company costs between $800 and $1200 a year.  The cost of presenteeism is estimated at $1000 to $1800 per employee annually.  Take a minute to sort out what illness cost your company.  The Healthier Environmental Living Program addresses presenteeism and absenteeism with these simple programs  Insert cost calculator here??

   

Retail - Healthier Environmental Living Program (HELP).

Our program addresses surface hygiene, air quality and water hygiene within your facility.  Our measured quantified system evaluates air, water and surface hygiene to combat the hidden cost of presenteeism and absenteeism.  Our program also limits the money spent on high dusting.  Submicron air filtration is a persistent cleaning technology.  It will easily reduce costs linked to high dusting.  Your marketing edge becomes an allergy and and asthma friendly environment for employees and customers.  Many retail establishments have a need for higher levels of clean like pharmacies and grocery stores

   

Schools - Healthier Environmental Living Program (HELP).

Schools are the epicenter of disease outbreaks in our communities.   The Environmental Protection Agency has indoor air quality as a top environmental threat in the United States.  Here is a link to their IAQ program.  (https://www.epa.gov/iaq-schools)  HELP addresses surface hygiene, air quality and water hygiene within your facility.  Our measured quantified system evaluates air, water and surface hygiene to combat the hidden cost of presenteeism and absenteeism.  Schools productivity levels drop when teachers and students are absent.  Indoor air quality in schools is a program pushed by the EPA to enhance hygiene and air quality in school systems around the country.  Outbreaks of various disease are growing.  Numerous schools are shut down annually for decontamination.  This year we have had outbreaks linked to whooping cough, mumps and measles.  These outbreaks impact both the school and community.  Need to insert school calculator here

 We can demonstrate that our program will pay for itself with reduced labor costs in daily cleaning.  This savings allows the work force to focus more energy in deferred maintenance in the school.

   

Fitness/GYM - Healthier Environmental Living Program (HELP).

Our program addresses surface hygiene, air quality and water hygiene within your facility.  Our measured quantified system evaluates air, water and surface hygiene to combat spread of secondary infection within your facility.  Odor is another issue in fitness facilities.   The hand wipes used in gyms today don't work.  In fact they help to grow the microbial resistance problem while draining your pocket book.  When you look at the label for the wipes note the dwell time for the product is listed at 3 minutes.  Last time we wiped down a piece of equipment with a disposable wipe it was dry in seconds.  Our persistent cleaning technologies combat odor causing germs.  We move to a green cleaning program using water and microfiber on your gym equipment.  We save you money and keep your facility measurably cleaner, at lower cost.  Our eco-friendly program will make your facility asthma and allergy friendly.  One simple protocol change of having everyone entering the gym to apply hand sanitizer will go a long way in keeping your facility healthier and cleaner.  Protecting towels for odor causing bacteria 

 

We can demonstrate that our program will pay for itself with reduced labor costs in daily cleaning.

   

Assisted Living - The Healthier Environmental Living Program (HELP)

Improving hygiene in assisted living can impact your bottom line.  When your guests and their families are happy they actively promote your business.   In 2104 the World Health Organization, White House and the European Union went public with the growing threat of microbial resistance to antibiotics.  With antibiotics becoming ineffective, it will again be possible to die from simple bacterial infections that were treatable last year.   With people spending 90% of their time indoors,  the need to engineer residential spaces to limit the spread of pathogens becomes more and more important.  We do this with clean surfaces, clean hands, clean air and clean water.  The number one capital expense in senior care is the replacement of carpet.  Most of the carpet is replaced due to odor not wear.  Our surface protection system works wonders on odor and will impact how often you need to change carpet.

 

We can demonstrate that our program will pay for itself with reduced labor costs in daily cleaning.

First Responder - Healthier Environmental Living Program (HELP).

Surface hygiene is a significant issue in the First Responder Community.  Our police and fire departments are on the front line of any pandemic.  Keeping the fire and rescue crews safe and limiting the spread of disease in the community by having clean ambulances is critical.  Environmental hygiene is needed in vehicles, offices and storage.  Ambulance around the world are contaminated with bacteria.  Hygiene standard remain low due to work load and the use of hand wipes that don't provide enough dwell time on the surfaces they are used on to kill the bacteria.  The cleaning tools used actually help to grow super-bugs by provide sub lethal doses of disinfectant to the bacteria, the bacteria then turn the disinfectant into a food source.  The Fire Service turn out gear smells.  Helmets, hoods and masks all remain sources of potential infection. The introduction of the Healthier Environmental Living Program with persistent cleaning technology into first responder community will curb secondary infections with employees and patients.  It will provide a huge morale boost based on odor control with the gear.
