Germinator Helps Create a Hygienic Environment for the Center for Community Resources
October 29, 2020
Like many businesses and organizations across the country, the Center for Community Resources (CCR) in Pennsylvania has had to take measures to maintain a hygienic environment for its customers and employees amid the COVID-19 pandemic. CCR was created in 2002 to assist the community through a single point of contact. Since its inception, CCR has expanded its service territory to include all counties in Pennsylvania. The center sees a great deal of traffic, so they wanted to add an extra layer of protection to go along with a regular cleaning routine. They called Germinator Pittsburgh and asked us to bring our Commercial Sanitizing and Disinfecting
services to CCR.
We've all been affected by COVID-19 in one way or another. The pandemic has taken a toll on consumers and businesses throughout the country, resulting in extensive job loss, business closings, school closings, and a complete restructuring of the way we do almost everything. Social distancing, quarantine life, and wearing masks have all become commonplace in our everyday lives. The pandemic has also changed the way many of us approach sanitizing and disinfecting. Germinator Mobile Sanitizing & Disinfecting is a big part of those changes.
Today more than ever, it is important that you take appropriate measures to help protect surfaces against the threat of harmful microbes. We understand the importance of creating a cleaner and more hygienic environment so you can have greater peace of mind. That's why Germinator has developed a patent-pending process that provides a new generation of microbial protection for residential and commercial establishments.
What Is Germinator's Patent-Pending Process?
Step 1 - Test Surfaces:
We first test your surfaces for ATP using a luminometer to detect light that can come from cellular activity. This measurement immediately tells us the level of clean on your surfaces.
Step 2 – Application of Genesis Surface Treatment:
Genesis is a one-step cleaner and broad-spectrum sanitizer and disinfectant treatment that harnesses the power of HOCl (hypochlorous acid) solution. Derived from naturally occurring minerals, Genesis not only eliminates odors at their source, but kills a wide range of bacteria, including Staphylococcus aureus
, MRSA, Salmonella enterica
and Pseudomonas aeruginosa
, and viruses including norovirus, rotavirus, and adenovirus on hard, non-porous environmental surfaces. It meets the Association of Official Agricultural Chemists (AOAC) germicidal spray standards for Hospital Grade Disinfection and is on the EPA N List of products determined to meet the criteria for use against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. As a result, this treatment will eliminate bacteria and viruses that may reside in your environment without the use of harsh chemicals or fumes.
Step 3 – Application of Bacteriostatic Finish:
Shield is a water-based quaternary ammonium compound that imparts a durable bacteriostatic finish to a wide range of non-food contact surfaces. It is EPA-registered as effective against mold, mildew, algae, and odor-causing bacteria. This application creates an invisible barrier that combats deterioration and discoloration and promotes freshness for up to three months.
The Genesis and Shield products are applied by using an electrostatic sprayer, which is the most efficient and effective means of delivering the products to the intended application sites.
Step 4 - Retest Surfaces:
After our surface treatment and protectant services, we retest to ensure the surfaces have achieved the intended results.
Germinator is your best choice for your commercial sanitizing and disinfecting needs for many reasons:
Knowledge and experience ¬¬- This is our specialty. Since 2015, we have been 100% focused on just sanitizing and disinfection services. We have conducted extensive studies based on experiments with other methods like ozone, UV light, hydrogen peroxide, chlorine dioxide, and other quats. These studies were reviewed by our Scientific Board
comprised of top medical professionals.
Product Efficacy - Based on the aforementioned reviews of various disinfection methods, Germinator acquired the products that would provide the most effective combination for cleaning and disinfecting and protection services available for commercial applications on the market. Our products are EPA registered as effective for their intended uses and further validated by our own Scientific Board.

Cost-Effectiveness - Germinator uses state-of-the-art services at the most competitive and cost-effective prices available. Our program improves upon routine janitorial services that use more harsh chemicals and have limited application capabilities.

Upholding the highest standards of sanitizing and disinfecting, Germinator only makes claims that are scientifically supported and within EPA regulations. To research and further validate its practice of sanitizing and disinfecting surfaces, the company recently created the Germinator Scientific Advisory Board. The board is made up of key leaders such as Dr. Roscoe M. Moore, Jr. —who was an Assistant to the United States Surgeon General for five administrations.
