K-12 and University Cleaning
K-12 and University Cleaning
When approaching school and university cleaning, facilities managers have to consider many factors. They think about the health of students, the comfort of custodians, the lifespan of the facility, the budget of the custodial department, and their responsibility to the planet – all before spraying and wiping down a surface. PathoSans on-site generation systems help balance all of these concerns, while creating an environment that is conducive to teaching and learning.
Save Time and Money
PathoSans changes the game for custodial managers by eliminating the time spent ordering, unpacking, mixing, and training, productivity will increase. In addition, operating costs will decrease due to the reduced need for PPE, container disposal and recycling and more.
Environmental Impact of Cleaning Solutions
The Beverage Industry Environmental Roundtable estimates that one plastic bottle has a total carbon footprint equal to 82.8 grams of carbon dioxide. Now multiply that by the number of bottles of cleaning chemicals you buy every year, and you’ll get a feel for the impact on your carbon footprint of using purchased chemicals. The PathoSans system produces electrochemically activated (ECA) solutions right in your facility, enabling up to an 85-95% reduction of cleaning chemicals and disposable packaging. They also eliminate the environmental costs of manufacturing, shipping, and disposing of cleaning chemicals. In addition, PathoSans solutions neutralize in the drain for easy, harmless disposal.
School and University Athletic Areas
PathoSans solutions clean and disinfect athletic equipment while helping prevent fungal infections, viral infections, and bacterial infections. In school and university athletic areas, infections like MRSA and staph have taken large tolls on student athletes. PathoSans solutions can make athletic areas less risky for athletes. Third-party tests verify a six-log reduction of listeria, E. coli, MRSA, strep, and more, meaning there were one million times fewer germs present after using PathoSans ECA solutions. PathoCide® effectively sanitizes surfaces where salmonella and staph are present.
Asthma and Allergies in Schools and Universities
Harsh detergents have an intrinsic smell that must be masked with synthetic fragrances. PathoSans ECA solutions have no added fragrances. Installing a PathoSans system at your school or university eliminates using conventional chemicals that may trigger asthma and allergies.
Carpet Cleaning in Schools and Universities
PathoSans ECA solutions are ideal for carpets. The custodial staff of a 4.5 million square foot school district use PathoSans solutions to clean all carpet. After, the carpets look pristine and have no chemical residue. The Carpet and Rug Institute recognizes ECA systems as effective for carpet cleaning.
