by Dana Ryan, Certified Clinically Clean® Specialist Disinfectants kill germs that cause colds, flu and other illnesses—when used as directed. The problem is, most people don’t read the label and they use the disinfectant incorrectly. Might as well pour the bottle down the drain, because if you’re making any of these six disinfectant mistakes, you’re not killing the germs. 1. Let It Dwell Disinfectants have dwell times on their label indicating how long the surface must remain wet in order […]

by Gus Scannapieco, Certified Clinically Clean® Specialist While researching information for our Disinfection Tips, I kept running across industry leaders touting the benefits of Hydrogen Peroxide for disinfection…from veterinarians and other healthcare professionals to carpet cleaners. Hydrogen Peroxide As A Disinfectant While Hydrogen Peroxide has a low toxicity rating, it is acidic and highly corrosive. If you’re using the 3% hydrogen peroxide solution from the drugstore as a mouthwash, you’d best rinse well with water after using. And never drink […]

by Dana Ryan, Certified Clinically Clean® Specialist We are right in the middle of the two most severe weeks for ragweed pollen. If you’re allergic, you probably already know that. Ragweed blooms almost everywhere in the U.S. but especially from the East Coast to the Midwest with the highest level of blooming in early to mid-September. Ragweed isn’t the only fall allergen, but it is the most common. It blooms and releases pollen from August to November. Cleaning Tips […]

by Autumn Ryan, Founder and CEO As I’m writing this, Hurricane Laura has become a Category 4 and is just a few miles from the Louisianna/Texas shore. There will be floods. So I looked to an OSHA Hurricane Facts website to find out what they recommend: “During a flooding event, there is an increased danger of contracting bacterial, viral and protozoal diseases. Floodwaters can be contaminated with sewage and decaying animal and human remains. Therefore, disinfection of contaminated hands, clothing, tools/equipment, […]

by Dana Ryan, Certified Clinically Clean® Specialist Fox News broke a story last week that “amid coronavirus, more than a third of US adults are using cleaning products incorrectly.” The story cited a recent study commissioned by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and claimed “these practices pose a risk of severe tissue damage and corrosive injury and should be strictly avoided.” The survey was conducted in May 2020. There were 502 respondents and questions ranged from what respondents knew […]

by Autumn Ryan, Founder and CEO Both antimicrobials and antibacterials act on different types of microorganisms. Antibacterials destroy or inhibit only the growth of bacteria. Antimicrobials destroy or inhibit the growth of all microorganisms, including bacteria, fungi and viruses. Therefore antimicrobials provide a broader scope of protection than antibacterials. In fact, using plain soap and water to wash your hands may provide greater protection from colds and flu than antibacterial hand soap or wipes. Ban On Triclosan You may remember that […]

From the Infection Prevention Experts—Aseptic Health Even most dictionaries get it wrong…disinfecting and sanitizing are not interchangeable. Sanitizing a surface means you’re lessening the number of germs on a surface to a safe level. Disinfecting means you’re actually killing bacteria and viruses by using a chemical for this purpose. The label of a sanitizing product usually states that it reduces germs on a surface by at least 99.9 percent. The label of a hospital-grade disinfectant kills 99.999% of germs. […]

by Autumn Ryan, Founder and CEO I feel like I should disclaim this article as not suitable for all audiences. If you’re squeamish, you might be grossed out, and you’ll definitely be more careful about what you touch from now on. The subject is biofilms on hard, non-porous surfaces. Biofilms are communities of microorganisms that are attached to surfaces and play a significant role in bacterial infections. There are either four or five stages of biofilm development. First the initial […]

by Autumn Ryan, Founder and CEO I’m seeing so much misinformation lately about what disinfectants can do. The one that reached my inbox that made me laugh most was the one that claimed protection from viruses on surfaces for seven years at a cost of $1,500 per gallon. Seven years? $1,500 per gallon? Really? Even if it were scientifically possible for anything to achieve that kind of protection at a high kill rate, would it really be worth $1,500 per gallon? […]

by Autumn Ryan, Founder and CEO Using an electrostatic sprayer to disinfect is a way of efficiently killing germs. Electrostatic sprayers work by charging the liquid disinfectant as it passes through the sprayer nozzle. This generates charged droplets that repel one another and actively seek out surfaces, which they stick to and even wrap around to coat all sides. Positively Attracted An electrostatic sprayer can be engineered to produce either positively or negatively charged particles. Most electrostatic sprayers generate positively charged particles, because most […]

by Autumn Ryan, Founder and CEO The COVID-19 pandemic has taught us many things, but in my mind, the most important lesson is that germs want to survive. It’s basic biology. Germs want to live and reproduce. And that is exactly the reason that viruses and bacteria become immune to antimicrobial cleaning solutions. It’s why “new and improved” cleaners are always being developed using “even stronger toxic chemicals.” And it’s why we must adopt the most efficient ways of killing germs—not […]

And they are harming our hands, lungs and environment and largely because we don’t read the label. It took the Covid-19 pandemic to alert most consumers to the fact […]

Aseptic Health’s Hospital-Grade Disinfectant Now Used to
Disinfect Emergency Vehicles Against Coronavirus
Ocean County, NJ, New Decontamination Sites Keep First Responders Safe
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (April 5, 2020) – Aseptic Health’s hospital-grade disinfectant, Aseptic Plus+, has long provided a fast and effective, low-toxicity solution to sanitize commercial and residential facilities. Now, Aseptic Plus+ is also used to disinfect emergency vehicles of first responders against the novel coronavirus, announced Autumn Ryan, founder and CEO of Aseptic Health.
The Ocean County, New Jersey, Sheriff’s Office, in partnership with Ocean County Police Chiefs’ Association, has established a decontamination site in Berkeley Township to sanitize emergency response vehicles.
Vehicles are sprayed using ULV foggers with Aseptic Plus+, an EPA-registered, hospital-grade disinfectant that is non-caustic, non-corrosive and fragrance-free.
In its first week of operation, the decontamination site serviced over 200 emergency response vehicles, according to Ocean County Sheriff Michael G. Mastronardy, who serves as Ocean County Coordinator for the Office of Emergency Management. “The site is set up for any police, fire or first aid vehicle in the county, especially those that have transported someone suspected of having the coronavirus,” said Sheriff Mastronardy.
“It’s important we keep our emergency responders – all of our police, first aid and fire personnel – safe during the coronavirus outbreak,” added Sheriff Mastronardy. “Along with all of our health care professionals, emergency responders are heavily relied upon by our residents. We need to do all we can to keep them safe.”
Sheriff Mastronardy said additional vehicle decontamination satellite sites are expected to be established under the Brick Township Office of Emergency Management and Jackson Township Police Department.
“I appreciate the efforts of all of our police chiefs and all of our emergency responders,” said Sheriff Mastronardy. “These partnerships go a long way in making certain we have what we need to keep our responders safe and to assist our residents.”
Ryan praised the work of Sheriff Mastronardy and the police chiefs for leading this effort to protect their first responders as well as Aseptic Health’s Certified SanitizeIT® Operator in New Jersey for working closely with these officials to quickly launch the decontamination sites.
“In the five years since I founded Aseptic Health, we’ve achieved exceptional, Clinically Clean® results disinfecting facilities in a broad range of industries,” said Ryan. “But the speed and decisiveness of Sheriff Mastronardy and the township Police Chiefs as well as our SanitizeIT team were remarkable in creating an immediate and effective solution to safeguard first responders and the citizens they serve and protect.”
