Illnesses Spread via "Touch Points"

Image of fingerprintDangerous viruses and bacteria are spread by human hands via "touch points" including door handles, faucets, desks, countertops, keyboards, elevator buttons, stair rails, and tabletops. Germs are also brought inside on the bottoms of shoes, feet and paws. When we cross paths with a disease carrier, or share our home or workspace with someone who is ill, even our best efforts to remain healthy can be challenged. How can one person combat trillions of bacteria on surfaces in the home or at work, day by day, year in and year out? According to CDC,

  • Absenteeism costs $1,685 per employee each year
  • Productivity losses linked to absenteeism cost employers $225.8 billion
  • 725,000 Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs) are reported each year

Cross Contamination

Image of spray bottle and ragThe traditional "spray and wipe" cleaning methods can make matters worse by spreading germs from each area into every other area via a rag or sponge. If one person at one table in a restaurant has a cold, others can be exposed to the virus when tables are wiped down. Trillions of pathogens are deposited on all sides of objects like doors, knobs, handles, and faucets. The chain reaction of infection reaches critical mass whenever microbes take up permanent residence on the backside of objects.

Resetting the Pathogen Count to Near Zero on Surfaces

Image of electrostatic disinfection at a commercial propertyOur Conservation Rangers liberate families and companies from the bane of infectious diseases by destroying the invisible pathogens that blanket the everyday world we touch. Our electrostatic spray technology induces an electric charge to spray droplets as they leave the nozzle. These charged droplets act like tiny magnets with a force stronger than gravity to adhere evenly on surfaces. What's more, this process achieves uniform surface coverage on all sides of every object in the room including the front, sides and  back of every handle, faucet, chair, seat and button. In minutes, Sgt. Poopers can create an sterilize an entire room resetting the pathogen count to very near zero.

In the past, this kind of coverage and technology was only available to hospitals. We can disinfect an entire house or office, daily or weekly, for just 2¢ per square foot.

In two minutes or less, our protocol kills up to 99.999% of all harmful bacteria on exposed surfaces in an entire room!

Up to 99.999% effective

Our hypoallergenic disinfectant leaves each room smelling great (fresh). It contains no artificial fragrances, perfumes, or scents. It is non-reactive, non-caustic, non-flammable, non-fuming, and non-staining.

Odors are generally caused by bacteria. We kill the bacteria so there is nothing left to smell bad. If you are selling your home or renting out apartments, call us in after the space as been cleaned. We will kill all the germs and rid the space of odors room by room. Disinfects entire rooms contaminated by,

  • bacteria
  • viruses
  • pathogens
  • germs
  • microbes
  • spores
  • mold
  • mildew
  • fungus
  • Ebola
  • MRSA
  • C.diff
  • E.coli
  • Staph
  • Listeria
  • H1N1
  • Cold Virus
  • Covid-19

Uniform 360° Coverage Graphic

Graphic diagram showing 360 degree coverage

Charged particles emitted by our spray system blanket every exposed side of every surface in a room to eradicate up to 99.999% of live pathogens. As a result, our protocols significantly reduce the spread of bacteria and viruses reducing the spread of illness and significantly reducing sick days.

"Electrostatic" means a charge is placed on stationary objects whether they are large or tiny. For example, when you rub a balloon in your hair, you are applying a static charge of electricity which enables it to stick on the wall as if magnetized. The attraction from the static charge is stronger than the force of gravity! We use the same principle applied to tiny droplets of mist of hospital-grade disinfectant. These particles are only 20 to 80 microns. Precise coverage is achieved since droplets are only attracted to spots where a previous particle has not already landed.

Case History: Ebola

If you lived in Dallas in 2014, you no doubt remember the fear we all felt when Big D was invaded by Ebola. Make no mistake, we are using the same disinfectant and same electrostatic delivery technology used to answer the unfolding catastrophe in Dallas and STOP the spread of Ebola.

Sgt. Poopers® Disinfection and Deodorizing buttonIt was September 30, 2014 when Thomas Eric Duncan (45) arrived at Dallas’ Presbyterian Hospital and was diagnosed with Ebola. He had come to Dallas to visit family, departing Liberia just days before. By October 4, Duncan's condition had deteriorated to "critical" and four days later, he died an agonizing death.  With blinding speed, the outbreak spread to the nurses who cared for him and that was when Dallas leaders tapped the power of electrostatic disinfection and the same hospital-grade non-toxic disinfectant we use today to reset the pathogen count in your home or place of business. 

At only 2¢ per sq ft per week, our disinfecting protocols are much cheaper than getting sick.

The Science Powering Our Electrostatic Disinfection System

Electrostatic spray systems have been used for years in automotive and agricultural industries to ensure precise and uniform coverage. In our case our hospital-grade EPA-Registered disinfectant is atomized under high-pressure and simultaneously charged at the nozzle with a built in electrode. An electrostatic charge is produced on the surface of each droplet so that the entire spray plume acts like magnetic field. Droplets are attracted to every square millimeter of any surface in the immediate environment. The result is consistent, even coverage with no gaps.

Consistent coverage is achieved because opposite charges attract. Once a particle lands in a designated spot, the charge is reversed so it then repels further particles. This force of attraction is stronger than gravity and stronger than the force of inertia propelling the particle forward, so particles are actually able to reverse direction and adhere to the backs and sides of objects, not just the front. With coverage literally wrapping around each object, consistent coverage is attained and no germs are left standing.

The magnetically charged plume coats all sides of every object in the room, even hidden areas that would be impossible to reach with traditional methods. Within seconds, a microbial extinction event event is achieved in each room.

Breakthrough: Whole Room Microbial Decontamination

Surface contamination is detected by measuring a substance called ATP, found only in the presence of living cells. The amount of ATP, or adenosine triphosphate, shows whether the surface is really sanitary or not. An ATP measurement of just 31 or higher is considered a “fail” in the food production industry. 

High levels of dangerous microorganisms correspond to an ATP count of 300 or higher and you will find that on,

  • 75% of sink faucets in company break rooms
  • 48% of microwave door handles
  • 27% of computer keyboards
  • 26% of refrigerator handles
  • 23% of water fountain buttons
  • 21% of vending machine buttons

These kinds of surfaces are easily decontaminated in seconds using our touch-free electrostatic disinfecting protocol.

Biofilm Makes Bacteria 1,000 Times More Resistant

Sgt. Poopers® Conservation Control Corps seal"Biofilm" is a structured community of harmful bacteria enclosed in a microscopic matrix of slimy, glue-like, protective substances anchored to a surface. Biofilm makes bacteria 1,000 times more resistant to many antimicrobial disinfectants. It also protects germs from the elements, and even cleaners. Biofilm renders bacteria immune to traditional disinfectants which are unable to penetrate their defensive shelter. According to the National Institutes of Health, biofilm causes as much as 65% of all microbial infections. The toxins they secrete cause all manner of inflammation and chronic disease. Lung disease, heart disease, bone disease. Diseases of the joins, kidneys, intestines. The list is long!

For the first time, scientists are beginning to understand the actual nature of bacteria and why cleaning alone does not kill or remove bacteria. Sgt. Poopers uses a new-generation disinfectant that penetrates biofim and oxidizes bacteria (meaning it chemically combines with molecules in the cellular walls of bacteria causing the cell to rupture and die). Our EPA-approved, CDC-listed, NSF-certified, no-rinse food-grade hospital disinfectant penetrates biofilm to kill 99.999% of germs in less than 60 seconds. Non toxic to humans, pets, it's the very agent to stop the Ebola virus when it struck Dallas in 2014.

Biofilm: Cleaning Doesn't Remove It

Image of a cleaning sponge

Biofilm can become so thick that you can see it with the naked eye. It can appear as "grime" or a discoloration that just won't scrub off. You can clean it, but that just provides a nice clean exterior for the thriving biofilim community safely embedded within.

Bioflim is the reason you brush your teeth. Dental plaque is an example of biofilm that can contain more than 300 different species of bacteria. Consider how quickly (24 hours) it plaque develops and then becomes a crud so invincible it requires a dental hygienist to scrap it away every six months with a stainless steel tool.

Biofilm also forms inside water systems and storage tanks eventually leading to clogged pipes, condensers, and corrosion. Food preparation areas make sanitation difficult because biofilm easily resists cleaners and wet rags. University of Illinois food science and human nutrition professor, Scott Martin, explains that,

"Once the pathogenic organism gets on the product, no amount of washing will remove it. The microbes attach to the surface of produce in a sticky biofilm, and washing just isn’t very effective.”

Liabilities of Traditional Disinfectants

Image showing a dish of baking soda

Many substances commonly used as disinfectants are not actually registered as such by the EPA. Some substances are also dangerous.

  • Bleach: Hazardous to humans, wildlife and the environment. Linked to respiratory problems and birth defects.
  • Ammonia: Not classified as a disinfectant by the EPA. Not effective against dangerous bacteria like staphylococcus.
  • Vinegar: Not a registered disinfectant and does not kill dangerous bacteria like staphylococcus.
  • Baking soda: Too weak to kill most bacteria, including salmonella, E. coli. and staphylococcus.
  • Tea tree oil: Not effective against powerful viruses and bacteria.
  • Antibacterial soap: No more effective than regular soap. The popular ingredient triclosan disrupts endocrine system. Creates deadly antibiotic-resistant superbugs.
  • Alcohol-based hand sanitizers: Claims of effectiveness NOT supported by the FDA. Ineffective against norovirus according to CDC.
  • Hydrogen peroxide: Unsafe in concentrations greater than 3 percent.
