Why We Use PermaSafe For COVID-19

Why Southern Antimicrobial Solutions Uses PermaSafe

Stay One Step Ahead Of Viruses And Bacteria. Don’t Just Kill Them – Prevent Them!

Antimicrobial Surface Protection

80% of people who contract an infectious disease contracted it by touching an infected surface by hand. This fact has never been more appreciated than now, during the COVID-19 outbreak. Even after the current pandemic has become a memory, our society will appreciate sanitation and the need to prevent disease spread more than ever in human history. The importance of handwashing and cleaning contact surfaces will not be forgotten. The current enthusiasm for disinfecting, though, will be difficult to maintain due to practical business considerations and cost implications.

Society’s challenge is this: Since we cannot eliminate contact with everything that has been touched by anyone, all we can do is eliminate the microbes themselves AND keep them away. Traditional disinfectants use toxic chemicals to kill germs. The problem is that, as soon as the chemicals evaporate, there is nothing left to kill germs and the surfaces can become contaminated again by the next person right away. What we need is some sort of sustainable sanitation.

Treated Surfaces Become
Virtually Self-Sanitizing

The answer is PermaSafe. PermaSafe not only disinfects, but also provides continuous antimicrobial protection via a proprietary chemical-free “Electro-Mechanical” process that kills germs indefinitely without the use of harmful chemicals. The PermaSafe System achieves this through two distinct, yet equally remarkable, patented and EPA approved products: PermaSafe CLEAN and PermaSafe SHIELD.

The second step (PermaSHIELD) is what really make PermaSafe the unique answer to our problem. PermaSafe SHIELD (Step2) permanently bonds with the surfaces to which it is applied. It creates millions of positively charged molecular “spikes” which extend off the treated surfaces. Germs are electrostatically pulled onto these spikes and destroyed mechanically (impaled). This coating is covalently bonded to the treated surfaces, making it permanent.

Kills Harmful Bacteria & Viruses

Keep in mind that the first step using PermaSafe CLEAN does kill 99.999% of bacteria and viruses. PermaSafe CLEAN is an EPA registered Hospital Grade Disinfectant and an odor, allergen, mold, and fungi eliminator. It is effective against viruses like SARS-CoV-2 (the virus causing COVID-19) and many other viruses like influenza and hepatitis viruses.

Furthermore, it kills many bacteria which cause food-borne illnesses and other diseases, including Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), Listeria monocytogenens, Legionella pneumophilia, Salmonella enterica, Salmonella choleraesius, Salmonella typhi, Salmonella typhimurium, Salmonella typhosa, and Hepatitis A virus.
