It goes without saying that the current pandemic has put most businesses (across most industries) to a grinding halt. With gradual reopening being the only solution for businesses of all types and sizes to resume operations, it has become imperative to have proper disinfecting and sanitizing processes in place.
However, disinfecting processes come with a set of real-life challenges when taking the conventional approach of using chemical-based disinfectants and alcohol-based sanitizers. Here, we have highlighted such challenges and the ways how non-chemical disinfectants can help businesses mitigate the risks.
1. High level of effectiveness
One of the main challenges that come with using chemical-based disinfectants is longer contact times. Contact time is the time that a disinfectant requires to kill microbial pathogens after coming in contact with them. Longer contact time means longer wait times for businesses to resume everyday operations. Depending on the size of the facility/workspace, businesses may have to make changes to their work hours.
SHIELDme™️ helps businesses steer clear of the issue of longer contact times with its high-level effectiveness. As one of the best disinfectants, it effectively kills microbial pathogens in as short as one minute, thus eliminating the need for businesses to face longer wait times after every sanitization session.
2. Effectiveness is not impaired
In many cases, the approach followed for disinfecting workspaces, inventories, manufacturing units, and other business facilities are in themselves a loophole. For example, many disinfectants, such as ones that include quaternary ammonium compounds, can lose effectiveness when used with microfiber cleaning wipes as they bind with the microfiber material.
This is not the case with non-chemical disinfectants such as SHIELDme™️. With a minimal formulation that combines electrolyzed water and hypochlorous acid, SHIELDme™️ doesn’t react to or bind with other materials and therefore doesn’t lose its efficacy. This also brings us to the next point: compatibility.
3. Compatibility with disinfecting and sanitizing tools
It’s often an extra expense for businesses, especially small to medium businesses, to buy specific tools and equipment for specific types of disinfectants. Along with it, the need for disinfecting teams or staff to maintain the compliance of equipment usage comes into play.
Unlike many disinfectants, SHIELDme™️ can be effectively used with even the most minimal cleaning tools such as microfibre cloth, and cleaning wipes and sponges. SHIELDme™️ is also compatible with cold foggers and high-pressure sprayers.
4. Multi-purpose use
SHIELDme™ eliminates the need for businesses to use different types of disinfectants and sanitizers in order to ensure proper sanitization. This is because it is effective in eliminating different types of disease-causing microbial pathogens such as viruses, bacteria, mycobacteria, yeast, spores, and fungus.
From sanitizing office interiors to disinfecting outer business premises, SHIELDme™ helps businesses cut down overall sanitization expenses by coming as an all-in-one solution.
5. Safety of the staff and disinfecting team
When disinfecting workspaces to ensure proper sanitization, businesses need to lay equal emphasis on the safety of the disinfecting team and the staff. Many disinfectants with harsh chemical formulations raise health risks as they can cause skin irritation and affect surrounding air quality with offensive odours. This essentially means that high-levels of health safety protocols have to be followed during each sanitization session.
Health safety is a top priority especially for specific businesses/facilities such as healthcare institutions and schools. As a natural disinfectant, SHIELDme™ is well-suited for hospitals, schools, hotels, and all other types of businesses as it has no damaging effect on the environment. In other words, it's gentle on staff and tough on microbial pathogens.
6. Safety of assets within business premises
Businesses are all about their physical assets as much as they are about talent resources. Physical assets such as electronic devices, machinery, equipment, tools, and furnishing are undoubtedly one of the highest investments of most businesses. Therefore, it’s a must to ensure the protection of these assets when sanitizing indoor and outdoor business premises.
However, many chemical disinfectants pose challenges in doing this as they increase the risk of surface corrosion and other damages which, in turn, can impair the longevity of the assets. Mitigating such risks is possible with SHIELDme™ as its minimal, non-hazardous formulation doesn’t affect the environment.
7. Ease of accessibility
Accessibility of any disinfectant plays an important part in determining the effectiveness of any sanitizing protocol. The easier it is to quickly and efficiently access the disinfectant, the faster and more result-oriented the sanitization process becomes.
Unlike chemical disinfectants with hazardous formulations that are needed to be confined to specific storage areas, SHIELDme™ can be stored anywhere for quick access. This also means that small businesses can encourage their staff to proactively sanitize frequently-used devices/equipment and frequently-touched surfaces by quickly accessing the natural disinfectant. 1
