As A Sanitizer
Unlike outdated sanitizing and disinfecting systems which cannot provide long term protection, SmartTouch Sanitizing® and Odor Eliminator System products add an invisible blanket of prevention that continues inhibiting odor and stain causing bacteria, mold, mildew and fungus afterwards.* SmartTouch Sanitizing® is an EPA registered hospital disinfectant that is applied without the need for wiping and rinsing, users of the SmartTouch Sanitizing® Systems are able to eliminate many bacteria and other organisms from indoor areas including homes, schools, offices, restaurants, gyms, buses and most all surfaces.
Certified for food contact surfaces by the National Sanitation Foundation, our products blanket areas with tiny particles that dry quickly. These tiny particles penetrate all areas, providing complete and effective coverage.
If you employ a cleaning staff and would like to decrease the labor currently employed to provide odor and sanitizing indoor areas, look no further. SmartTouch Sanitizing® Systems is the single source for application equipment solutions that are people, pet and planet friendly.
If you are concerned with mold, staph, MRSA and other harmful bacteria, our system will allow you to sanitize surfaces at a home, school, gym, or daycare facility. By increasing the effectiveness of the application, we eliminate cross-contamination problems. This process is faster and easier than with manual hand spray and wipe methods.
As An Odor Elimination System
As the SmartTouch Sanitizing® System blankets surfaces, the formula oxides odors at their source. We DO NOT use masking agents, which allow odors to return. We also do not use perfumes, which may contain harmful chemicals. Scents and fragrances can contain VOC’s, which can be harmful or trigger allergies and asthma. In fact, when compared to standard cleaning procedures alone, our products can reduce indoor allergens by at least 50%.
Keep in mind, the deodorizing process requires surfaces to dry completely in order to achieve maximum effectiveness. Therefore, areas requiring deep deodorizing, such as unsealed basement floors, or products like carpets, carpet padding and other similar materials, may take from 24-48 hours for maximum freshness. Our sanitizing products safely eliminates odors in all indoor areas caused by dog urine, cat urine, smoking and cooking.
