Why do we need the 3-point cleaning system?
Because disinfectant efficiency is reduced significantly by organic matter no one chemical can provide a lasting solution. Biotech and Genie Bio Clean have effectively combined three patented chemicals, applied sequentially via a 'touchless delivery system' that will kill 99.9999% of all hazardous germs and bacteria and prevent their return from between 3 − 12 months.
Why fog in place of spray and wipe?
There is enough evidence to show that spray and wipe is not an effective process for disinfection. While spray and wipe are necessary for cleaning, more contemporary methods such as fogging for whole room disinfection are needed to assure that all surfaces whether visible or not, are reached and pathogens are eliminated.
Is the Genie Bio Clean 3-point system safe to use around sensitive healthcare equipment and computer keyboards?
The fogger produces a dry mist which when used as directed, does not condense or corrode and can be effectively used in healthcare settings including patients' rooms, waiting areas, treatment rooms and operating rooms.
Does a strong odour remain, as with bleach?
No, the Biotech chemicals are colourless and odourless.
Is the process environmentally friendly?
Yes, 100% environmentally friendly, the solution disintegrates into water and oxygen.
Is the process toxic or harmful?
No, it's non-allergenic and poses no risk to animals, plants and humans.
How does it carry on protecting against germs?
SIQac leaves behind a safe, undetectable protective layer on surfaces. The statically charged antimicrobial coating physically destroys the microbes and does not contain toxic elements or chemicals to which microorganisms can adapt. It therefore offers a long lasting and durable antimicrobial protection. Once it has dried it forms a physical or mechanical action, therefore is non-leaching and food-safe.
Why use peroxide-based products versus chlorine?
There are many advantages to using peroxide instead of chlorine for disinfection. In healthcare and surface disinfection applications, Genie Bio Clean peroxide based disinfection products are patented and approved for fogging. By fogging versus spray and wiping, the product reaches every surface in a room whether visible or not and thus minimises the impact of human labour inconsistencies.
These products are effective, odour-free and economical, do not condense or corrode, have a long shelf life and are safe to use around sensitive equipment. Hydrogen peroxide decomposes into oxygen and water and is safe for people and the environment. Chlorine bleach, while a powerful disinfectant, produces harmful and toxic disinfection by-products. Other issues with chlorinated products include strong odour and corrosion, making them unsuitable for fogging application.
When used in water treatment applications such as drinking water, consumers notice an unpleasant taste and odour. In industrial water treatment applications, the short shelf life and limited efficacy against biofilm create challenges that can be solved with the peroxide-based Genie Bio Clean system that leaves no odours or unpleasant taste.
How do you know it's suitable for specific surfaces?
It can be used on practically any surface including:
- Play equipment including fabric
- Door furniture
- Counter tops, basins
- Healthcare equipment
- Fitness equipment and saunas
- Computer accessories, screens and telephones
- Soft furnishings
- Paper, books and magazines
Why are other products not effective?
- Cleaning products and detergents do not remove all the organic matter, debris or grease
- Disinfectants may not be fully effective
- Once dry, they are inactivated in relatively short times
- And there is always human error!
How long before the treated room can be used again?
After the chemicals have been applied the room is available for use within two hours.
Which pathogens does the Genie Bio Clean 3-point cleaning system protect against?
The effectiveness of our disinfectants against numerous pathogens has been tested and confirmed in more than 250 assays carried out by well-known international institutions.
We provide effective, high performance disinfection with ultimate safety to us and the environment in mind:
- Bacteria − gram positive
- Bacteria − gram negative
- Viruses − enveloped viruses
- Viruses − non-enveloped
Is it flammable?
No, it does not form any explosive vapours.
