Why Traditional Cleaning Isn’t Enough

In order for chemical disinfection to work, powerful solutions require adequate dwell times to achieve a complete kill.

Housekeeping staff rarely allow sufficient dwell time for chemicals to work.

For proper dwell time to be achieved, surfaces must be covered in harsh chemicals for extended periods, making it impractical.

Surfaces are being continuously re-contaminated by microorganisms, so even freshly disinfected surfaces are “clean” for a brief time, at best.

Studies have shown that some pathogens can exist on surfaces for days, weeks, and even months on end.

Microbes can hide in inaccessible areas such as cracks and crevices.

Traditional cleaning temporarily eliminates microbes on hard surfaces, but not in carpets, fabrics, or in the air.
