Reopening Your Business with Punch Citrus Disinfectant Fogger

FIRST, YOU SHOULD KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DISINFECTING, SANITIZING, AND CLEANING:

Disinfecting kills 100% of bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Only an EPA registered disinfectant will actually disinfect (Tip: An EPA number will be visible on the product label). An EPA-registered disinfectant has been tested and registered with the Environmental Protection Agency. As part of the registration process, the EPA evaluates the product efficacy and that the claims on the label are accurate. Sanitizing kills and reduces the number of bacteria on a surface by 99% percent but does little to nothing about viruses and fungi. Sanitizing decreases the population of bacteria to meet acceptable public health standards. The majority of cleaning/sanitizing/disinfectant chemicals purchased in retail stores are actually only cleaners and/or sanitizers. Cleaning removes dirt and bacteria from objects and surfaces. If you are using soap and/or water then you are cleaning. Cleaning lowers the spreading of bacteria but has little effect reducing the number of viruses or fungi. If there are 1 million bacteria, viruses, and fungi on a surface then an EPA registered disinfectant will kill 100% of them. A good sanitizer will reduce the number of bacteria down to 10,000 but does nothing about virus and fungi. Cleaning makes the surface look nice but not much else.

The bottom line:

Sanitizing is better than only Cleaning, but complete elimination of bacteria, virus and fungi is only accomplished when you Disinfect with an EPA registered disinfectant.

Here are some quick tips:

  1. You only need to disinfect surfaces and objects that are touched often. The most common surfaces that the flu virus camps out on are desks, countertops, door handles, keyboards and faucet handles. Use your EPA registered disinfectant on these surfaces daily (the flu virus can infect a person for up to 48 hours after being deposited on a surface).
  2. Use an EPA-registered product that both cleans and disinfects instead of using multiple products that only clean or disinfect.
  3. It’s not necessary to disinfect floors and walls other than in restrooms and locker rooms. It's OK to use a simple cleaning solution for floors/walls in hallways and common areas.
  4. Use EPA registered disinfectant wipes on electronics, phones and computers instead of liquid or aerosol disinfectants.
  5. Be safe and do not mix cleaners and disinfectants unless the labels indicate it is safe to do so. Combining products like chlorine, ammonia, and bleach can result in serious injury or death.
  6. To ensure you are getting an EPA registered disinfectant purchase your disinfectants through a specialty chemical company not retail stores.
  7. Use disinfectant bombs frequently during flu season, here is Kinzua Environmental's disinfectant, deodorizing bomb:

Mold and Mildew Removal Guide

How Do I Remove Mold & Mildew?

First, it's good to know the difference between the two. Both mold with mildew are fungi that thrive in warm areas that have a lot of moisture. One of the easiest ways to tell mold from mildew is how each fungus looks. Mold typically has a fuzzy or slimy consistency and it colored green or black. Additionally, it usually grows beneath wet surfaces versus on top. Mildew is typically a fluffy or powdery consistency and colored white, gray or yellow. Additionally, it grows on the surface of areas that are exposed to moisture and warm temperatures. When conditions are right, mold and mildew can grow in as little as 24 hours! Exposure can cause respiratory illness, eye irritation, illness and more, so it's important to treat this as early as possible.

Both mold and mildew are commonly found in both commercial buildings and residential homes. Mold is often found in both indoor and outdoor spaces that have gotten wet, such as sheds, crawl spaces, basements, and garages. Mildew is more often found indoors, such as bathrooms, showers, sinks and the kitchen sink area, as well as cabinets. Removal of these pesky fungi can be challenging with so many products recommended in the marketplace. Most products are either made to remove mold or to remove mildew, however, Mold Boss from Kinzua Environmental is formulated to easily remove both.

MOLD BOSS combines powerful cleaning action with a stain remover to clean and whiten difficult mold and mildew stains. Recommended for use on many surfaces including: tile, grout, vinyl shower stalls and doors, shower curtains, sinks, wood and other surfaces with mold and mildew stains. It is recommended to also use Punch-Citrus mold killer fogger in any area that has consistent mold or mildew growth; or in a remediation program. By fogging the area prior to cleaning, you ensure all spores have been killed.

The Best Way to Clean Wood Floors

Proper maintenance is essential to keep wood floors looking beautiful and performing well for the lifetime of the floor. To keep wood floors looking and performing well for generations, follow these simple guidelines:
    1. Schedule a weekly routine cleaning that involves sweeping, dust mopping, or vacuuming (using the bare floor setting) to remove dust and dirt.
    2. Clean spills immediately with a dry or slightly damp cloth.
    3. Use a cleaner made specifically for wood floors, like Wood Wizard.

Wood Wizard is a concentrated mopping solution with a quick evaporation formula. Chemical cleaners that sit on wood floors too long, damage them and decrease the floors lifespan. Wood Wizard not only evaporates quickly, it deep cleans and renews wood finishes.

Quick Guide for Choosing the Best Ice Melt for your Facility

With so many deicers available its hard to know which one to buy, Here is a quick guide:

• Sodium Chloride: Rock Salt is the cheapest ice melting option. Prices can be as low as $3 per bag (50 lbs) depending on supply. However, you get what you pay for. Rock Salt will only melt snow and ice effectively at temperatures down to +16 degrees, but performs best in the mid-20s. Rock Salt (sodium chloride) is highly corrosive and will damage asphalt, concrete, metal, lawn and most other surfaces over time. Bottom line: short term savings, long-term costs. • Magnesium Chloride: A premium/high performance ice melt due to its effectiveness. It’s gentle on surfaces and vegetation. It is also pet safe and it doesn’t track as much as other deicers. It has a low environmental impact. It will melt snow and ice effectively down to -20F. • Calcium Chloride: Calcium chloride is more expensive than both sodium and magnesium chlorides. It will melt ice to -25F. It is more corrosive than Magnesium but less corrosive then Rock Salt. It does track but will get the job done. • Liquid De-Icers: Ammonium sulfate, glycols, urea and formates are the most common on the market. Ideal for handicap ramps, entrance-ways, parking lots and steps. No ‘tracking” of salt or other compounds and most will melt to -25F. We’ve found the most effective ice melt plan includes both liquid and pellet ice melts. Experts advise to stay away from rock salt. A combination of Magnesium and a premium liquid ice melt for entrance ways is gaining popularity.
