Daycares. Gyms. Hospitals. Schools and universities. Office buildings. Residential houses. What do all of these things have in common? Germs. Bacteria and viruses are everywhere. From the common cold and seasonal flu to more serious infections like H1N1 and MRSA, germs wreak health havoc on individuals of all walks of life and at all times of the year.
But germs are especially active during the winter months, which are quickly approaching as evidenced by those increasingly accumulating piles of crunchy, brown leaves.
They’re just germs … right?
You may be surprised to learn just how dangerous germs can be.
- Healthcare-Acquired Infections (HAIs) caused by hospital-originating superbugs kill more Americans each year than AIDS, breast cancer and auto accidents combined.
- These sometimes-deadly pathogens (e.g., MRSA) are expanding their reach beyond hospitals, with more virulent strains showing up in community settings.
- Current industry cleaning disinfection procedures and protocols using EPA-approved products with spray-and-wipe techniques are actually quite ineffective. They’re also extremely prone to human error.
- Studies report that even the “best manual cleaning procedures” kill, on average, only 40-60% of the targeted germs.
Just say no to wiping.
As stated before, multiple studies have shown that even thorough wiping with EPA-approved disinfectants is ineffective when it comes to wiping out pathogens.
- Germinating germs
It’s actually pretty logical when you think about it: Wiping simply spreads bacteria and viruses around, sometimes even giving their infestation a broader reach. When it comes to wiping, there’s no way to avoid cross-contamination.
- The fine print
Most disinfectants have to be left on surfaces for at least 10 minutes to kill germs. However, people tend to bypass this critical instruction and immediately wipe the surface after spraying.
- Not the deep clean you need
Antibacterial wipes, sponges and rags don’t reach into the cracks and crevices where pathogens thrive.
Ready to get serious about detoxifying your environment of those productivity-squelching, life-disrupting germs? Now is the time to get on board with Halosil: the next generation of commercial disinfectants.
And say yes to Halosil.
Halosil, ideal for both surface disinfection and water treatment, is a patented formula made from a unique blend of hydrogen peroxide and silver.
- Safe and non-toxic
Halosil’s extremely low toxicity rating means it’s safe for all humans and animals. In fact, the ingredients in this disinfectant have been used medicinally for hundreds of years to help boost the immune system.
- Environmentally friendly
Since all of Halosil’s ingredients decompose into water and oxygen, you’re guaranteed an eco-friendly clean — Mother Nature approved.
- No odor or color
No bleach stench with Halosil!
Halosil simply makes sense.
It’s got quite an impressive edge on traditional disinfectants.
- Wide-range efficacy
Halosil is known as a “broad-spectrum disinfectant,” meaning it kills a wide range of viruses, bacteria and fungi. It performs either equal to or better than all other disinfectants.
- Improved safety
Bleach and other leading disinfectants are harmful, with some posing carcinogenic (cancer-causing) and mutagenic (gene-mutating) risks. They’re also known to inflict irritations to skin, eyes and lungs. Halosil, which contains no toxic components — i.e., chlorine, bleach, alcohol, aldehydes, phenolics, quaternary ammonium compounds or sodium hydroxide — is certainly the safer bet to disinfect.
The science behind Halosil.
You didn’t expect us to simply tout the advantages of Halosil without tapping into the science that makes it tick, right?
- Halosil releases free-oxygen radicals that attack the cell membrane of the pathogen, damaging its integrity and function.
- It then binds to the DNA to halt replication and metabolic function.
- Halosil finishes the job by binding to the cell’s enzymes and completely cutting off their energy source.
Fog it out.
When partnering with a restoration and cleaning company, make sure it’s on board with Halosil and the innovative Halosil Fogger*. This lightweight room fogger disperses Halosil throughout an indoor space, ensuring that all surfaces are exposed to the disinfectant. Halo not only eradicates surface germs, but also helps remove particulate matter and airborne spores to improve air quality and prevent mold growth.
*The Halosil Fogger is a commercial product and should only be used by trained cleaning professionals.
