Two separate Centers of Research Excellence within the Global Virus Network (GVN), both of which have state-of-the-art facilities dedicated to the study of viruses on various surfaces and are among the very few research centers throughout the world that have access to the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) isolate for investigation and testing purposes, independently conducted an extensive series of tests on our solution in May 2020. Tests included ASTM E1053 tests, which is the standard methodology for assessing the virucidal efficacy of liquid, aerosol or trigger-spray microbicides on environmental surfaces. Scientists at both facilities definitively demonstrated that our solution, when applied both to porous and to non-porous surfaces, quickly eliminates SARS-CoV-2 and creates a highly durable protective coating that continuously eradicates and prevents SARS-CoV-2 growth.
Our solution is safe for humans and the environment and has passed EPA cytotoxicity. It is also water-based with patented technology that uses ZERO triclosan, phenols, arsenic, titanium, heavy metals or poisons. Our solution carries an FDA master allowance file (MAF) through the CDRH providing for use in medical devices (instruments and types of implants). It also has multiple EPA registrations including approval with our formulation for FCSS (Food Contact Surface Safe). The product is covalently bonded to the substrate, meaning there is no possibility of leaching into the surrounding environment. Even if it were to be released, the product is non-toxic for humans and animals so there would be no lasting damage. Also, the product does not degrade or erode like current chemical approaches. It is also not leaching, migrating, flammable, or corrosive.
Our solution has been EPA approved to continually disinfect for up to 90 days. It can start to lose effectiveness after 6 weeks, so the Protection Pros Process is applied bi-monhtly to ensure optimum effectiveness.
Our solution has been approved as a Food Contact Surface Preservative. It can be used on food preparation surfaces including (but not limited to):
- Cookware made from any material
- Countertops and cutting boards
- Food wrap including aluminum foil, plastic wrap, coated deli paper and plastic trays
- Collection and storage equipment
- Storage containers of any material
- Industrial prep and processing equipment/machineryPaper products such as wipes, tissues,
wall coverings, towels and more
- Sinks and other vessels used for cleaning and transporting food and beverage productsCarbon water filters and other drinking water filter media
A Protection Pros representative will conduct a follow up visit 30 days after your treatment to conduct bacteria testing. The results will be emailed to you. If the bacteria levels are outside of normal ranges, Protection Pros will reapply the application at no cost to you. We will also work with the distributor to determine why the original application wasn’t effective and help you to prevent any future interference in maintaining the effectiveness of the product.
Our solution helps prevent the mutation of adaptive germs. Other technologies work by “uploading” into the microorganism resulting sometimes in a mutation of the original microorganism. Our solution does NOT promote adaptive organisms.
We are a local, family owned, small business. Our process IS the New Standard of Clean. With self-cleaning, common surfaces (touchpoints) are cleaned with poisonous disinfectants that leave behind no effective residual protection and within hours of disinfection, bacteria will grow exponentially presenting a renewed risk. Our EPA approved solution provides persistent and continuous protection by creating a microscopic shield on porous and non-porous surfaces, helping ensure these outbreaks are prevented.
Protection Pros employees will come to your site and complete the disinfection process and place decals in key locations to let your staff and patrons know that you are protecting them for up to 90 days with continuous disinfection. Learn more...
