Advanced Vapor Technologies LLC

The Thermal Accelerated Nano Crystal Sanitation (TANCS®) dry steam vapor system from Advanced Vapor Technologies (AVT) earned IEHA's "High Performance Cleaning Product for Microbial Reduction" designation following an assessment under its High Performance Cleaning Product (HPCP) testing program.

The HPCP program tests, verifies and helps promote hard surface cleaning products with green attributes to help foster the awareness and availability of those that most effectively clean an array of surfaces throughout a range of environments.

As found in the testing, microbial kill times for AVT's proprietary dry steam vapor system, which uses only tap water to produce treated steam, are in the seconds — as opposed to the minutes of dwell time required for many chemical disinfectants.

By the second week in January 2013, the U.S. was experiencing a particularly nasty flu season.

Virtually all states reported high levels of "influenza-like illnesses," and the proportion of people visiting physicians because of flu-like symptoms had climbed to nearly sKaivac Inc.ix percent — usually, only about 2.2 percent of all doctor visits are because of flu-like symptoms.

At the same time, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that the number of people who do not get a flu shot every year appears to be on the upswing.

Right now, it is estimated that less than half of the U.S. population receives a flu shot every year.

WillSpeed Technology LLC

When it comes to effective and lasting infection control in your facility, GermBloc antimicrobial surface protection and GermBloc alcohol-free hand sanitizer lotion are the answer to your hygiene needs.

At WillSpeed Technology, we understand that germs and viruses are everywhere and, despite even the best efforts, know that custodial professionals cannot clean and disinfect every high-touch surface frequently enough so no contaminants ever reside on them.

We are also aware that proper handwashing and hand hygiene are not practiced by far too many people — posing a threat to all individuals by harboring the spread of germs and viruses.
