Retail Stores, Schools, Universities, Houses of Worship, Restaurants, and Bars, as well as Hair Salons, Beauticians, and Gymnasiums are all good examples of social venues that need to maintain a sanitary presence for both staff and patrons, in order to operate safely and in compliance with local, state or Federal guidelines.
MOST SOCIAL VENUES HAVE OPERATED WITH INFREQUENT AIRBORNE SANITIZATION
The challenge of INFREQUENT AIRBORNE SANITIZATION is an uncontrolled and increased exposure to other patrons, any one, or many may be asymptomatic, pre-symptomatic, or even, symptomatic with COVID-19. As the virus is able to stay airborne for such a long time, this increased exposure is potentially a Cumulative Airborne Viral Load (CAVL) in the venue.
REDUCE & MANAGE EXPOSURE TO CORONAVIRUS & FLU WITH STRUCTURE
By adding a regular structure to Airborne and Surface Sanitization, any indoor venue can provide a significantly safer place for patrons to socialize. By adding a STRUCTURED SANITIZATION PROTOCOL (SSP) to the daily operations of any business, we can reduce exposure to other patrons to a limited number, probably determined by current legislative guidelines of the ‘number of people who can gather’.
With SSP, at the end of each operating day, the staff are able to clean and sanitize the property. Altogether, a regular venue’s airborne space could be fully clean and sanitized in a 10 minute window by using DRY ELECTROSTATIC FOGGERS (also known as Thermal Foggers), so the surfaces do not get saturated such that they would require excessive drying time.
STRUCTURED SANITIZATION PROTOCOL (SSP)
Instead of expensive and infrequent Professional Sanitizing Services provided by outside vendors, social venues can implement a daily Structured Sanitizing Protocol (SSP) where employees utilize FogBlaster Airborne Sanitizers coupled with the power of hypochlorous acid (HOCL), a compound favored by the National Institute of Health, to help provide patrons and visitors with a sanitary and safe indoor experience.
Each social venue commits to clean and sanitize the Airborne Space of the venue DAILY instead of infrequently, as a best practice to reduce the risk of Cumulative Airborne Viral Load.
The Cumulative Airborne Viral Load (CAVL) increases moment-by-moment as more patrons or visitors frequent the venue and during the course of breathing, exhale aerosol particles capable of carrying viruses like flu and COVID-19.
Over the course of the day or evening, greater concentrations of CAVL build-up and are easily removed at the end of daily operations, resetting the CAVL to acceptable airborne sanitary levels. As operations resume the following day/evening, greater concentrations of CAVL may develop.
During closing, employees can simply reset the viral load to help protect themselves and tomorrow’s patrons.
Coronavirus is able to stay airborne for between several minutes and several hours. The only way to truly sanitize a venue is to fog SPACE by sanitizing ‘from the top down’ (near the ceiling) with a sanitizing aerosol fog small enough to stay airborne for a similar time as the virus, and following similar ‘air pathways’ that a virus might travel.
As the virus always starts as an exhaled droplet, it always starts airborne, and, it always ends up on a surface, either vertical or horizontal. Any person can then contact the surface with their hands and inoculate themselves by touching their face. By sanitizing all surfaces, we signiﬁcantly reduce the risk of hand contact with an active virus cell.
