Coating Process

Surface Coating

Step One:
SafeTouch uses a EPA registered hospital disinfectant cleaner to prepare the surface.
The sanitizer (NSF certified, no rinse required) removes 99.999% of bacteria, including E. coli, Salmonella and Listeria.

Removing mold and bacteria can involve strong chemicals that may trigger health problems, like chlorine bleach products that produce trihalomethanes (THM) and haloacetic acids (HAAS) which are linked to cancer. SafeTouch uses a ecologically sound alternative. The products are colorless, odorless – so mild you can wash your hands in it, and will not harm hard or soft surfaces, or colorfast fabrics. Use it on shower curtains, under sinks, in basements and crawl spaces – anywhere mold and bacteria are found.

Step Two:
Applying the Ant-Microbial coating.
The coating method is determine by the treatment location. After determining the method, SafeTouch will effectively treat all surfaces in the selected area.

SafeTouch utilizes several coating methods.
Backpack Electro-Static Equipment (Large areas)
Suitcase Electro-Static Equipment (Small areas)
Nano-Fogging Equipment
Compressed air canisters

Healthcare associated infections (HAIs) are the number four cause of death in the United States, exceeding the combined mortality of breast cancer, AIDS and traffic accidents.

In a 2008 article, the editor of the New England Journal of Medicine, estimated that hospital acquired infections add an average of $15,000 to the cost of care which puts a total cost of infections in the U.S. around $40 billion a year.
This cost is in addition to the suffering caused with more than 2 million infections a year, over 150,000 deaths and millions of extra days spent in the hospital.

Of equal concern are the evolving antibiotic resistant strains of microorganisms such as Methicillin-resistant Staphhylococcus aureas (MRSA) and Acinetobacter spp, which are making the resulting mortality of a healthcare associated infection greater than ever.

The result has been increased public pressure, and legislative initiatives, holding hospitals accountable for these increased costs. In October of 2008, Medicaid approved a policy to no longer reimburse hospitals for certain preventable errors (including some types of infections) and Medicare is reserving the right to further expand the list. Private insurers are following this lead.

Why a facility needs the SAFETOUCH Services?

Reason #4: Facilities may not get cleaned/disinfected properly Many offices are cleaned only 2-3 times per week. Even if an office is cleaned daily, janitorial staff may not clean the items with high germ counts, such as: phones, keyboards, mouse’s, door handles, etc.

Reason #3: Using Advanced Electrostatic Equipment
Utilizing SAFETOUCH advanced electrostatic spraying equipment. The specialized binding process will wrap Hospital grade disinfectants and antimicrobial’s around Germ infested areas for complete surface coverage.

Reason #2: Be Proactive instead of Reactive!
Why wait until you have a surface contamination problem of MRSA, Staph, Ringworm, Flu Virus, etc. Take the battle to the microbes! A SafeTouch Anti-Microbial Treatment is a great way to show your staff, clients, parents, patients that you care about protecting your facilities surfaces. Why wait until there is a surface microbial problem?

Reason #1: Give your facility a 24/7 barrier that will fight against microbes!
Most name brand disinfectants currently used do a good job of killing microbes. However, once the chemical dries it is no longer effective, in other words, there is little residual killing power and the surface can re-contaminate. The SafeTouch system can initially remove up to 99.99% of microbes using hospital grade disinfects. The Anti-Microbial Coating applied will then continue to fight microbes for up to one year in most cases. Only wear and very caustic chemicals will remove your silane based and polymer anti-microbial coating.
