For people of all ages and cultural backgrounds, churches represent an important source for spiritual growth. A year ago, churches all over the country saw their activities thwarted by COVID-19 and all the changes that came with the pandemic, so it's no wonder why people are still looking for the safest way to practice their religions in this new reality. The members of the Trinity United Christian Church of Lower Burrell shared their worshippers' concerns and spent months striving to help ensure a safe environment for their congregation. Their efforts ultimately led them to hire Germinator's New Kensington disinfecting service to ensure the best antimicrobial protection for all visitors.
The Trinity United Christian Church has spent years supporting the Christian community of Lower Burrell through different ministries and programs while consistently providing a safe space for people to live and express their faith. After keeping up with all the COVID-19 updates and heeding the public health guidelines, the church's pastors and leaders were well aware of the risks that came with mass congregations and started looking for the most reliable method to provide a safe environment during their weekly celebrations. They contacted Germinator Pittsburgh to learn more about our disinfecting and sanitizing program and decided to make their church a Germinator Safe Zone.

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 cleanliness 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:
The 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 the growth of 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.
