August 19, 2020
Huntsville, AL – (08/19/2020 9:00 AM EST) – Germinator Mobile Sanitizing and Disinfecting is continuing its rapid expansion across the country, opening its newest location in the Southeastern United States. The company is proud to announce it has opened doors in Huntsville and will offer high quality sanitizing and disinfecting services to businesses and residents throughout Madison County.
The company provides a a patent-pending process that provides a new generation of microbial protection for residential and commercial properties. Germinator Huntsville will be owned and operated by Paul Orton. An educator for over 20 years, the current pandemic led him to open a Germinator franchise in order to provide the community with a sanitizing and disinfecting service for their peace of mind.
"On March 13, with coronavirus on the rise, I was cleaning my classroom after school with a can of disinfectant and was immediately struck by its strong, chemical odor," said Orton. "I wondered to myself what exactly was in these products, and I discovered that some of the ingredients used in disinfectants could contribute to asthma, dermatitis, and other health problems. I was looking for an alternative product and an effective disinfectant, which led me to discover Germinator, which uses hypochlorous acid (HOCI) as a part of their sanitization and disinfection process. Their HOCI solution uses no harsh chemicals or fumes."
Germinator's patent-pending methodology is the most unique and cost-effective means of providing enhanced antimicrobial protection for businesses and residences. The company first tests surfaces for ATP using a luminometer to detect light that can come from cellular activity. This measurement immediately provides the level of clean on a surface.
The next step is the application of Germinator's Genesis surface treatment. Genesis is a one-step cleaner and broad-spectrum sanitizer and disinfectant treatment that harnesses the power of hypochlorous acid (HOCl). 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's 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.
Following Genesis, Germinator applies its Shield, a water-based quaternary ammonium compound that imparts a durable bacteriostatic finish. It is EPA-registered as effective against mold, mildew, algae and odor-causing bacteria. This application creates an invisible barrier that helps combat 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. After Germinator's surface treatment and protectant services, the company retests ATP levels to ensure the surfaces have achieved the intended results.
Based in Atlanta, Germinator has launched 21 new franchises across the U.S. since February, eight of which are located in the Southeastern United States. In addition to Alabama, the company recently opened a second Georgia location and has launched new franchises in North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. The company was founded by Jeff Gill in 2015 with the vision of providing an effective method of proper sanitizing and disinfecting for businesses and households.
"We're looking forward to the opening of our first Germinator location in Alabama," said Gill. "Paul is a leader by nature and was the perfect choice to spearhead our launch in this new market. He's led generations of students for over 20 years throughout Alabama, Texas, Tennessee and even across the globe. Now, he is leading the charge of providing Madison County with a better option for proper sanitization and disinfection as we navigate the pandemic."
Upholding the highest standards of sanitizing and disinfecting, Germinator makes claims that are scientifically supported and within EPA regulations. In an effort to research and further validate its practice of sanitizing and disinfecting surfaces, the company recently created the Germinator Scientific Advisory Board. The board is made up of key leaders such as Dr. Roscoe M. Moore, Jr. —who was an Assistant to the United States Surgeon General for five administrations.
The company continues to expand across the country, providing communities with a proactive solution to create and maintain clean and hygienic environments. With Germinator, society can now have peace of mind and the freedom to live or work in a sanitized and disinfected environment.
