What is an anti-microbial?
An antimicrobial is a substance that either inhibits, or kills, the growth of all microorganisms. ‘AI ShieldTM Antiviral Antimicrobial Self Disinfection’ offers an anti-microbial protection that lasts for 180 days following initial application.
Why should I use ‘AI Shield™ Antiviral Antimicrobial Self Disinfection’ instead of other traditional disinfection methods?
Unlike other disinfection methods perform only on an ‘on and off’ basis. ‘AI ShieldTM Antiviral Antimicrobial Self Disinfection’ removes the risk of cross-contamination infection 24/7 for at least 180 days after treatment.
What microorganisms does the AI Shield™ eliminate and protect against?
The AI ShieldTM destroys/eliminates and protects against up to 99.999% of harmful microorganisms, including the following bacteria, viruses, fungi, mold, and other:
- Staphylococcus Aureus
- Escherichia Coli
- Community Associated MRSA
- Hepatitis B
- Hepatitis C
- Avian Influenza
- Canine Parvovirus
- Poliovirus Type 1
- Salmonella Choleraesuis
- Streptococcus Pyogenes
- Healthcare Associated MRSA …. and many more!
Will regularly cleaning a treated surface remove ‘AI Shield™ Antiviral Antimicrobial Self Disinfection’?
No! In fact, routine cleaning will only serve to enhance and optimize the efficacy of the treatment ensuring that the ongoing disinfection potential remains at maximum efficacy for at least 180 days. As the antimicrobial surface is very thin and too much dirt or other contaminant build-ups can cover the spike-like appliances and render them less effective until they are cleaned.
How it is different from regular fogging/sanitization?
Treatment for CIDO (Critical Infection, Disease & Odour) is a two-stage operation. 1st stage of disinfecting & eliminating Biofilms that may harbor micro-organisms and then RSQAC Protective (AntiMicrobial & Antiviral) Shield is applied using specially designed electrostatic sprayer gun.
Why AI Shield™ is different from any other good quality disinfectant?
Regular QAC is Quaternary Ammonium Chloride, a very effective disinfectant, but since it is a leaching chemical, the efficacy remains limited for a few minutes or hours after application. But AI Shield™ ensures that it holds the highly aggressive silane-based active gaseous ion in the coating for a very long time. The efficacy of AI Shield™ is therefore long-lasting.
What is a biofilm and why its removal is important?
Scientists have recently discovered that bacteria can communicate with each other. When confronted with unfavorable environmental conditions, such as refrigeration, they signal each other to begin forming a protective coating called a biofilm. In fact, studies have demonstrated that when spraying sanitizer on bacterial colonies encased in biofilms, only 60% of the bacteria die. When this happens, the sanitation crew cannot fully clean and sanitize the surface because their sanitizers are not able to penetrate the biofilm and get down to the bacteria. That’s why AI ShieldTM prevents the formation of BioFilm on all the surfaces wherever you apply the program.
How does this treatment work on COVID 19 virus or any other virus/ bacteria?
When microorganism come in the contact with the treated surface, the quaternary amine puncture the cell membrane & the electrical charge Nitrogen ion shocks the cell. Since nothing is transferred to the now dead cell, the antimicrobial doesn’t lose the strength and is ready for the next contact.
Is there any test to quantify the safety level after sanitization?
Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) Test can be done to check the hygiene & safety level.
How many tests will be done within 6 months of treatment?
You can buy the machine from us and use the same. Alternatively we can arrange Total 5 tests at high touch point areas as Free of Cost within the claim period.
How the treatment area is calculated? Is it on carpet area basis?
In case of an empty room/ hall the treatment area is calculated on carpet area + 5ft height of side walls; however an area with larger and dense furniture will have 15% extra cost
