“The Coronavirus has changed what it means to be clean,” said the Wall Street Journal. “In the year 2019 B.C. (before Coronavirus), homeowners or their housekeepers could basically scrub, wipe, dust and vacuum their way to a clean house. But now many homeowners are hiring companies with specialized tools and chemicals to disinfect their homes as a way to protect themselves and their families from the deadly infection.”
The Wall Street Journal talks about the importance of using “heavy artillery” to fight COVID-19. This includes the use of electrostatic sprayers (like those used by bioPURE) to give homes and businesses a true and effective deep clean.
The article focuses on bioPURE and its innovative disinfecting services. “The cleaning company bioPURE, with eight locations in the U.S., encourages clients to sign up for regular applications of disinfectant, just as a homeowner would for pest control. In weekly, biweekly or monthly visits, bioPURE technicians use electrostatic sprayers to disperse its disinfectant. The chemical dries quickly after application, eliminating the need for a wipe-down after spraying. ‘We put a molecular coating all over your home, like powder coating,’ says founder Brandon Kinder.”
Additionally, the article includes key information from Professor Lee-Ann Jaykus, a NC State professor who specializes in microbiology and virology. Professor Jaykus, who authored a 2017 study that looked at the effectiveness of disinfectants in killing viruses, said that disinfectants used by bioPURE (containing chlorine dioxide) are able to inactivate viruses studied and get to hard-to-reach places.
