How to Properly Disinfect Schools and Keep Them Open
“The outbreak of the coronavirus has become a major disruption to colleges and universities across the country, with most institutions canceling in-person classes and moving to online-only instruction. The pandemic also threatens to significantly alter nearly every aspect of college life, from admissions and enrollment to collegiate athletics. These concerns extend to the financial future of higher education institutions in a time of considerable financial instability, both in the form of unexpected costs and potential reductions in revenue.”

High volume sprayers
The CK Storm unit sprays a mist 50 feet long and 30 feet wide covering 10,000 square feet in one minute. Our CK Commercial unit sprays 12-15 feet long and 8 feet wide covering 3,000 square feet in one minute. It also has a hose that can go up to 75’ so that the unit can be rolled through the corridors and the applicators can get to each section of the mid and upper parts of the arenas.
What are we spraying out of this high-volume equipment? First we start with one of the most earth-friendly botanical disinfectants on the market – Benefect Decon 30. The product is safe enough to spray without personal protection equipment. Second, after cleaning and disinfecting, we recommend adding a 100% organic anti-microbial, SD 90, to non-porous surfaces that can last up to 90 days.
DBD Bipolar Ionization technology
Ionic technology has been around for a while. The theory of scrubbing the air clean using ions is not new. Ions actively seek bacteria and virus and essentially render them inactive through a natural process that pierces the shell of the bacteria or virus and changes its ability to produce. The biggest difference with our patented technology is the delivery system that is designed to bringing millions of healthy ions into an indoor air environment is more effective than any other ionic or bi-polar ion (BPI) technology. For example, a popular BPI currently being used by Siemens is Needlepoint BPI. Needlepoint emits ions that last 10-20 seconds barely making it out of the duct work it is installed in. Our advanced DGD BPI has ions that last 300 seconds. Sending millions of ions that last 300 seconds into an indoor air environment is a game changer.
Multi-layered Screening Evaluation Gateway (SEG)
We have a patented bio-screening kiosk. Our unit, the SymptomSense Kiosk, checks for body temperature, oxygen level, and respiratory rate – at hospital-grade accuracy. According to General PK Carlton, Jr., MD, FACS – Former Surgeon General USAF, Ret., temperature only checks leave up to an 88% chance of missing a COVID19 infected person. This multi-level screening process offers up to 99% accuracy of differentiating an individual who is sick from someone who is not.
IMPORTANT: The SymptomSense Kiosk is “CARES Act Qualified” for 100% reimbursement once funds are allocated by the respective State to respective Local Educational Agency (LEA).
