Our Do it Yourself Antimicrobial Surface Protection system treats up to 500 square feet of surface area, and cost $199 per order.

Yes.  Clean the treatment area as you would normally clean it.  Ensure that all gross debris is removed.  Apply to clean, dry surfaces.

Yes.  This treatment is not a replacement for routine cleaning. In fact, routine cleaning is recommended to keep it effective. The antimicrobial surface is very thin and too much dirt or other contaminant build-up can cover the spike like appliances and inhibit their antimicrobial properties until they are cleaned.

Yes, with the exception of abrasive cleaning products.  By utilizing abrasive products, such as gritty cleaners and steel wool, the antimicrobial surface will be damaged and the antimicrobial action will decrease.  The long-lasting antimicrobial action lies in an intact surface.

The chemical system that is used is comprised of two distinct, yet equally remarkable, patented and EPA registered products: 

The first-step application deploys a high-performance, multi-surface cleaner; no-rinse, no-wipe sanitizer and broad-spectrum hospital-grade disinfectant and odor, allergen, mold, mildew and fungi eliminator.

The second step of the process is the application of a long-lasting antimicrobial surface protectant that creates an invisible barrier to inhibit the growth of microorganisms and helps prevents the growth and spread of bacteria.  

Effective on an almost endless array of soft and hard, porous and nonporous materials and surfaces, a installation starts by fogging the cleaning agent unto surfaces throughout the designated area and the HVAC system that services it.

Upon application the first-step of the process: 

  • Kills 99.999% of harmful bacteria and viruses
  • Destroys mold & mildew and helps prevent regrowth
  • Eliminates existing, and helps prevent future odors
  • Sanitizes HVAC system components and ductwork 

Once clean, disinfected and deodorized, the same spaces and surfaces are then fogged with the unique antimicrobial surface protectant.

Upon application, the patented active ingredient in the second step of the process bonds with the surfaces to which it is applied.  As the protective coating dries millions of positively-charged microscopic “spikes” form and extend from the surface.

Because microorganisms are negatively charged, they are electrostatically pulled onto the positively charged spikes and eliminated, as the spikes rupture their cell walls and essentially “electrocute” them.

Exceptionally multifunctional, the chemistries also help preserve and protect the look, feel and smell of treated fabrics and other materials, from curtains to carpets and everything in between. It also:

  • Repels and helps resist stains from liquids, dirt and other spills
  • Shields and can help extend life of upholstery, carpets and other surfaces
  • Helps prevents future odors, fading and surface degradation 

Even more than its versatility, what’s most remarkable about the system is it remains antimicrobially effective for months, and does so without the use of any harsh chemicals.

While the cleaning agent acts and dissipates quickly, the subsequent application of the surface protectant provides months of 24-7 antimicrobial protection. 

The surface protectants patented antimicrobial agent forms a covalent bond with the surfaces to which it’s applied. In this regard, it isn’t really a “coating” like paint because its application actually results in the formation of a totally new surface, technically known as a co-polymer, which becomes an integral part of the original surface.

The surface protectant does not dissipate over time, does not volatilize (give off gasses or chemicals into the air), is insoluble (it won’t wash off), doesn’t leach (move through other materials by any one of a number of physical processes) and isn’t absorbed or consumed (eaten) by the microbes. In theory, it should last and remain antimicrobially effective forever.

In practice it does not. Given the many different surfaces, environments and conditions surface protectant is subjected to, and other factors, our residual efficacy claim is limited to “up to 90 days.”*

*Inhibits the growth of microorganisms, odor causing bacteria, bacteria which cause staining and discoloration, fungi and algae for up to 90 days.
