As experts in facility disinfection and safety for more than 15 years, we’re often asked by facility managers for recommendations to ensure their places of business operate safely. The team at Zogics has had the privilege of working with thousands of businesses, from schools and universities to fitness centers, hospitals and long-term care facilities, and more, throughout the United States, allowing us to gain unparalleled industry insights. From these insights, we've developed the four pillars of facility disinfection and safety.
The objectives of the four pillars are to be highly effective at cleaning and disinfecting, reduce virus transmission risk and reinforce the perception that your facility is at the forefront of cleaning and disinfecting technologies and protocols. This strategy is geared towards combating Covid-19 in the short term but will be relevant for years to come as society adapts to new cleaning and disinfecting expectations and overall hygiene concerns.
1. Indoor Air Quality & Air Purification
Air quality plays a critical role in helping businesses operate more safely and instill confidence in your staff and clientele. Clean air technologies that use UV-C and Ionization like Big Ass Fans Clean Air System destroy pathogens4 and provide comfort to your people. These fans can be mounted on ceilings and walls and are available in portable freestanding models.
2. Disinfecting Sprayers
Every facility should have a disinfectant sprayer. They are the best way to deploy disinfectants over large areas, especially those not touched by disinfecting wipes. They’re also highly efficient, covering more square footage in 80% less time than traditional methods. Plus, unlike invisible air disinfection, sprayers are an impressive show of force that will comfort staff and guests when in use. The days of cleaning staff members walking around with spray bottles and dirty rags are behind us.
3. Surface Disinfecting Wipes
Disinfecting wipes are more popular than ever because they allow people to take cleaning matters into their own hands. People want the ability to ensure the surface they are about to touch or just touched is disinfected. Most businesses do not have enough wipe dispensers. We recommend one for every 500 sq. ft. and at least one in every fitness room.
4. Hand Sanitizers
Hand sanitizer use is at an all-time high, and it's expected that touch-free dispensers are to be within close reach. A pump bottle at the front desk is no longer enough. We recommend one at every entryway, one in every bathroom/locker room, and at least one in every conference or main room (typically near the wipes dispensers).
Additional products play an important role too, such as PPE, athletic floor cleaners, and touch-free fixtures.

4The Big Ass Fans Clean Air System Ion Generator kills >96% of bacteria and fungi on surfaces in 60 minutes. Bacteria testing includes Escherichia coli, Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Streptococcus equi and Fungi testing for Aspergillus niger.
All Ion and UV-C testing was completed in enclosed indoor spaces. In outdoor spaces overhead and directional fans can increase dilution airflow in occupied spaces. Fan operating speed is proportional to the airflow delivered by the fan. Increased operating speed will increase the generation of ions for fans with ionization technologies. Increased operating speed will increase the rate of room air mixing for fans with ionization or UVC technologies.
