EBOLA DISINFECTION SERVICES in Salt Lake City, Utah

We get a lot of questions about the effectiveness of the Halo Disinfection System against Ebola virus. At Germ Champs we offer Ebola Disinfection Services. Call today for more information (801) 438-7632
Ebola strains on surfaces are assumed to be fairly easy to kill since they are an enveloped virus which are less resistant to disinfectants than non-enveloped viruses. Our ebola disinfection services are known to kill other enveloped viruses including Influenza Viruses and Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). HaloSpray has an EPA claim for several Influenza strains.
Ebola Disinfection Products
Our products and services  do not have an Ebola kill claim on the disinfectant labels. That said, testing for the Ebola virus is not available because it is so hazardous to conduct. At this time we are not aware of any EPA registered disinfectant that has an Ebola kill claim.
We know of no manufacturer that has been able to test the efficacy of different disinfectants against the Ebola virus due to the great risk of contagion and lethality. However, the Ebola virus is an enveloped virus (like the flu and HIV), our ebola disinfection services are much like the disinfection services we provide for  the flu and HIV and come with an EPA registration claim to kill enveloped viruses.
This Ebola outbreak started earlier this year and now is the largest outbreak on record. Transmission of the disease is via body fluids. The virus can be difficult to diagnose as is has a long incubation period during which transmission may occur. Symptoms are often mistaken for those associated with Influenza or Malaria, which have initial symptoms which are quite similar to early stage Ebola symptoms. The result is that preventing the spread of the Ebola virus is complicated and the disease, which is often fatal, is spreading at alarming rates. A further complication is that the modernization of the African continent – better roads and more air travel enable infected individuals who are yet undiagnosed to move around easily and spread the disease widely

LOVE YOUR PETS, KILL THE PATHOGENS: 10 LOW-COST WAYS TO PREVENT ILLNESS


Love Your Pets, Kill The Pathogens: 10 Low-Cost Ways to Prevent Illness

Pets can be an amazing source of companionship and support to their human owners. Plus, pet owners enjoy many well document health benefits. Several studies have proven that pets can improve medical illnesses, both biological and psychiatric, and speed up recovery after a surgery procedure. That said, pets harbor pathogens that can cause serious illness too.

Pets Harbor Pathogens

From parasites to fungi, all pets harbor a host of pathogens that can make you and your family very sick. Even the cleanest of indoor pets can pass several life threatening pathogens to their human family members. This fact is especially true for young children, the elderly, anybody with a compromised immune system or pregnant women. Not to worry, by following a few simple rules you and your pets can enjoy a long and healthy life together.

Simple Rules To Protect You and Your Family:

1. Never touch or handle any kind of pet excrement (poop) or urine without gloves (even when it just sitting in the back your). In some case additional personal protection may be required.

2. Keep the litter box clean. All excrement and urine clumps should be removed daily. This task should also be done with gloves.

3. For indoor / outdoor pets, check to see if their paws are clean before the pet re-enters the home.

4. Regular kennel, cage, bowl, tank cleaning is very important.

5. Pregnant women, should always avoid touching or handling cat poop and litter box materials. Pregnant women should also avoid all pet excrement.

6. Clean and disinfect all surfaces on a regular basis. This includes carpets, counter tops, toilets etc.

7. If a pet does track in something from the outside, clean it up quickly!

8. Don't let pet stains, especially urine, remain on any surface.

9. Groom your pet regularly, daily if needed. Pet hair can be annoying and it can pose a serious health risk. In addition, trim your pet's nails on a regular basis or as directed by your veterinarian.

10. Wash your pet regularly or as direct by your veterinarian. If a pet smells like excrement or you can see excrement is attached to their fur, the pet should be cleaning before allowing them to enter your home.

CAN I USE BLEACH TO KILL MOLD.
HERE IS WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW.

Bleach will kill mold and in small areas but bleach comes with a lot of downsides. Bleach can and is toxic and poses health risks to users and to occupants during and after use. Also, bleach cannot prevent the mold from returning to the cleaned surface. It may look clean when you're done cleaning, but the mold can and often will grow back within weeks.

Bleach is a poor option for treating mold on porous surfaces such as drywall, lumber and grout. More importantly, bleach can create more problems down the road and it can actually protect mold and cause other mold products to be less or totally ineffective. Also, you cannot paint over mold. Common household paints act as mold food. Yes, the surface might look okay after you paint, but you've now made your mold issues even worse. In addition, to spreading the mold you have given the mold a nice safe place to grow and given it food.

I've already treated an area with bleach. What can I do now?
When bleach attacks surface mold, it leaves a residue layer that prevents some Mold Control products from penetrating to the mold roots or hyphae. This can limit the product's effectiveness. If you've already treated a moldy area with bleach in the past, you should first wipe the area down with warm water and detergent to remove the layer. Once the area is dry, other mold control products can be applied recommended in the usage instructions.

Keep this in mind next time you make a pit stop at a fast-food drive-through - the steering wheel of your car harbours nine times more germs than a public toilet seat. Research has found that while 80 bacteria lurk on each square inch of toilet, around 700 harmful bugs inhabit the car's interior.
The study also revealed that 42 per cent of motorists regularly dine while driving.

Sitting comfortably? The interior of the car harbours nine times more bacteria than a public toilet seat Only a third cleaned the inside of the car once a year, while ten per cent said they never bothered to wipe down surfaces or vacuum.

700 DIFFERENT KINDS OF BACTERIA WITHIN CAR INTERIORS

But don't let that squeaky clean look deceive you. Hitching on for a ride can be all sorts of bacteria, mold, viruses and dust mites. This can really make a difference during the flu and allergy seasons.

Jill Holdsworth is an infection preventionist and is president of the DC Metro Chapter of the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology. She says the car can be a very big place to pass bacteria back and forth if you are not careful.

"The No. 1 hot spots would be anywhere that you touch with your hands," Holdsworth said. These areas include the steering wheel, radio, gear shift, cup holders and car seats.

Car interiors are often overlooked for disinfecting and deep cleaning.

A study conducted several years ago by experts at Queen Mary University in London shows an average of 700 different kinds of bacteria within car interiors, compared to 60 types in the average public toilet.

If you don't disinfect, those germs in your car can easily spread the cold and flu viruses along with gastrointestinal illnesses like norovirus.

APIC just launched a "Infection Prevention and You" website to provide information about preventing infections: www.apic.org/infectionpreventionandyou.

Why eating your lunch off the work toilet may be a good idea?

Why is it that the average office desk harbors 400 times more germs than the toilet? Because office toilets get hygienically cleaned regularly.

Did you know that americans spend about $5 billion each year on their colds - about $3 billion on doctors' visits and $2 billion on treatments. In addition, a n estimated 60 million days of school and 50 million days of work are lost annually because of the common cold.

At Germ Champs we can eliminate all of the germs. In one quick visit we can disinfect every keyboard, mouse, counter top, light switch, door handle, etc. As a matter of fact our system will kill every germ (virus, bacteria, mold) on every service.
