Advanced Protection Program
The Best Available Technologies to help protect against harmful microorganisms.
- Shock - to help mitigate known contaminants in an area; a sudden, strong jolt; impact.
- Shield - a protective coating; used as protection against danger or risk; to cover.
OMNI has developed a patent-pending program to help ensure that your facility is able to maintain a higher standard of clean. You can disinfect and neglect a surface, or you can SHOCK AND SHIELD a surface.
What do we mean by SHOCK AND SHIELD?
Historically, a surface is cleaned with an all-purpose cleaner or some type of dangerous disinfectant, requiring long dwell times and often leaving behind harmful byproducts and fumes. We don’t think anyone will disagree that surfaces should be disinfected, given the rapidly improving protocols being put in place for cleaner, safer surroundings. The surface needs to be SHOCKED and contaminants need to be mitigated.
The most effective method of disinfecting is through the utilization of UV light. Bacteria and viruses can’t build a tolerance to UV light or mutate once exposed to it like they can with other disinfectants. When using 254-nanometer wavelength UV, the light is able to target and disable disease-causing microorganisms. Unlike other methods of disinfection, UV does this consistently, quickly, and without creating harmful byproducts.
So, how long does a surface remain disinfected? That depends. Is it a high-touch surface like a doorknob, light switch, elevator button, or keypad? If it is, then chances are it is likely to be reinfected soon after it has been disinfected. Every touch is another chance to potentially contaminate a surface.
When an Antimicrobial Coating is applied to either porous or non-porous surfaces, it helps to inhibit bacteria, fungus, and mold with reapplication as necessary when odor, staining, or discoloration returns. The surface can be continuously cleaned and repeatedly disinfected and the antimicrobial shield will remain intact. The Shock and Shield Program helps keep a surface protected in case an area is overlooked during the cleaning process.
