Clean, Disinfect & Protect with BactiBarrier

5/23/2016 (Permalink)

BactiBarrier protects both hard and soft surfaces in your home.

Let SERVPRO® of Chesapeake help protect your family, friends, and employees from harmful bacteria, fungi, yeast, algae and viruses with BactiBarier’s microbial protection system. This long-lasting antimicrobial protection application can be employed to treat almost any surface. A surface cleaned and treated by the 2 step BactiBarrier system will stand against future microbial growth.

BactiBarrier is a specially formulated antimicrobial first introduced over 30 years ago. BactiBarrier is a 2-step, EPA registered microbial disinfectant and EPA registered microbial protector that can be used to create Long Term protection on surfaces where the spread of germs is a concern. BactiBarrier creates a permanent bond with a surface that bacteria cannot penetrate. This blocks microorganisms from contaminating surfaces and inhibits their growth, month after month.

Is the treatment safe for use on all surfaces?

Generally speaking, yes. You can pre-test any questionable or extremely sensitive surfaces to determine if the products will adversely affect them, but this technology has bonded safely to almost every surface encountered.

The treatment can last for the life of the treated surface, if the surface is not subject to heavy soiling or abrasive cleaning.

The time the process takes and how soon the treated surface can be used varies greatly depending on the volume of space and number of items. Simple applications can be completed within a few hours while others may be more labor intensive. For the treatment of hard surfaces, you can re-enter with an hour or so while soft surfaces, we suggest allowing the fabric to dry.

The application has no harmful or objectionable odors and the microscopic layer of protection is invisible and imperceptible to touch. This layer of protection provides a preventative coating that inhibits future growth.

The level of contamination on a surface, before and after cleaning, can be measured using a Hygiena Adenosine Triphosphate meter, otherwise called an ATP meter. This measures the level of clean or contamination on the surface.
