The current health crisis has altered the inner dynamics of many businesses around the country. Convenience stores, retail shops, and other such establishments have been among the most affected by the pandemic, with many employees suffering the effects of COVID-19 first-hand. Uni-Mart, one of Pennsylvania's most popular stores, sought out Germinator's Donora sanitizing service to continue providing all the goods and supplies customers need in a fully hygienic environment.
Serving as a convenience store, gas station, and car wash, Uni-Mart is part of a commercial chain with over 30 stores spread all around Pennsylvania. It has earned a glowing reputation among the town's residents thanks to years of exemplary customer service and the best quality for all the products in-store. Adding to a variety of goods, the brand has strived to instill the importance of creating a lasting impression on customers, and this is evident in the performance of all its employees.
When different members of its staff tested positive for COVID-19 despite the safety measures in place, the owners of Uni-Mart of Donora knew that improvements had to be made. With the continued well-being of employees and customers in mind, they contacted Germinator Pittsburgh and, soon after, our field specialists were on their way to bring our antimicrobial protection into the establishment. Germinator's patent-pending process was applied carefully and thoroughly over each wall and floor within the store, including high-touch areas like the counters, the storage, the refrigeration areas, the aisles, and their corresponding shelves. With all its surfaces fully disinfected and sanitized, Uni-Mart of Donora was once again ready to welcome its customers with the highest health standards to ensure a safe shopping experience.
Our 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 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.
Convenience stores require special protection against viruses, germs, and bacteria. They see constant activity from people coming in and out of the store. More than half of their structure is made of high-touch areas that can easily turn a store into a potential health hazard when the disinfecting methods are anything less than optimal. Germinator understands the importance of these establishments in this new reality, namely their role in providing easy access to products that people can't get elsewhere without exposing themselves to infection. We are dedicated to helping people feel comfortable and protected no matter where they are.
Our staff is highly trained to ensure meticulousness without losing efficiency, with respect and professionalism at the forefront of everything we do. Our patent-pending process guarantees the complete disinfection of companies in all kinds of industries, along with a useful verification component that will give you the peace of mind you need while managing your business.
It's possible to keep the best hygiene standards through the constant activity of convenience stores, mini-markets, and retail shops. Germinator creates a safe environment for visitors and employees with the most effective process to ensure complete antimicrobial protection.
