The pandemic has been stressful for everyone. As we continue to navigate social distancing and quarantining when necessary, we also have to deal with the reality of continued school closures, businesses losing income, or in some cases, shuttering permanently and many other unprecedented events that the pandemic has caused. While it seems like a minor thing, many people have missed the luxury of being able to go to their favorite hair or nail salon. Now that businesses can open up again, customers are putting these luxuries high on their list of priorities. The Tortoise and the Hair Salon in Amarillo, Texas, were eager to welcome its customers back, but they wanted to do it in a way that was easy not only for their customers but for their employees as well.
Jennifer Marcum, the salon owner, had to close its doors for about six weeks due to the pandemic. Now that they are open again, she says they are taking extra measures for their stylists and customers. These measures include extra cleaning, wearing masks, and limiting the number of customers allowed in the building at any given time. They also hired Germinator Amarillo to deliver commercial sanitizing and disinfecting services for an added layer of protection. She says that customer comfort has always been a part of their goal at the Tortoise and the Hair Salon, and she felt that Germinator could help her reinforce that goal.
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.
Germinator upholds the highest standards in the industry. We only make claims that are scientifically supported and within EPA regulations. 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. Our solutions are EPA approved and scientifically proven in lab studies and independent university studies to be effective when used in conjunction with a regular cleaning routine.
For this job, the Tortoise and the Hair Salon contacted us the night before the job was to be undertaken. We arrived early in the morning the following day to sanitize and disinfect the entire facility, completely treating the salon. We made sure to cover everything, including all of the major touchpoints and those hard-to-reach places that often get overlooked. When we finished, the Tortoise and the Hair Salon was ready to receive customers.
Germinator Mobile Sanitizing & Disinfecting is the ideal way to help reduce the threat of germs, bacteria, and viruses on surfaces. Our patent-pending process provides the kind of peace of mind that so many of us are looking for these days. As a business owner, you can be confident that your employees and customers will feel comfortable being in a clean and hygienic environment.
COVID-19 has made us all aware of how quickly our lives can change, and while our country is on the mend, life isn't quite back to what it was. Many of us are still cautious, so as a business owner, providing your customers with a hygienic environment goes a long way toward continuing to build trust with them. The Tortoise and the Hair Salon is one of those businesses that wanted to go the extra mile for its customers. Germinator Amarillo is proud to be a part of helping the Tortoise and the Hair welcome customers back.
