What are other companies using?
Many places are using products like Lysol, Clorox, and Isopropyl Alcohol to disinfect their businesses, homes, vehicles, etc. Though these may help, they are only capable of what is called a 3 Log kill, meaning 99.9%. They are applying this in several different ways, oftentimes leaving behind chemicals that can be harmful to people and they also require further cleaning to remove the harmful chemical left behind. Many of these products cannot be used on electronics, items we use every day that also need disinfecting.
What option best kills viruses and bacteria?
As mentioned above, most products provide a 3 Log kill (99.9%). Almost 6 years ago American Craftsman Restoration partnered with TOMI SteraMist™, this technology is capable of providing a 6 Log kill, meaning it is able to kill 99.9999% of viruses, bacteria, and spores when applied. Originally developed to disinfect government buildings after anthrax started showing up in envelopes in the early 2000’s, SteraMist™ is the only 6 Log kill product on the market. When American Craftsman Restoration applies SteraMist™, only Oxygen and Water as byproducts are left behind. SteraMist™ creates a hydrogen peroxide mist using its very own BIT™ solution. BIT™ is free of bleach, chlorine, formaldehyde, peracetic acid, and fragrance-free with no additives. After application, the disinfected area only needs to remain vacated for 60-120 minutes, meaning less downtime for businesses.
American Craftsman Restoration has shifted its focus purely to disinfection and decontamination during this difficult time. With its partnership with TOMI SteraMist™, American Craftsman is committed to providing the only 6 Log kill product on the market to as many places in the community as possible.
Here is some additional helpful information:
- The hospital-grade disinfection system we use is the TOMI® SteraMist™ system which has an EPA inactivation claim against norovirus. SteraMist™ is also registered for a 99.9999% kill on difficile spores and features efficacy of inactivating Influenza A and similar, enveloped viral threats, including coronavirus.
- American Craftsman Restoration is an Emergency Restoration/Response firm specializing in healthcare and bio-related issues. We have crews on call 24/7 and response time is dependent on demand. If there is not a high demand for service, response time is on average 1 – 2 hours onsite from the time of a call. If there is a high demand, service is prioritized based on urgency and risk to the health and safety of occupants.
- American Craftsman Restoration is applying an EPA registered Hospital Grade Disinfectant in a manner consistent with the label and EPA American Craftsman Restoration does not represent that structure and contents will be free of contamination such as viruses and bacteria. As doors open and close and individuals enter who might carry things such as viruses, bacteria or mold with them, the structure and contents might be contaminated after the service has been performed. It has been documented that asymptomatic people can carry viruses during the incubation period and there is no known way American Craftsman Restoration or client can know whether or not this has happened or will happen.
