cleaning worker fighting Anti germs, microbes

SmartClean announced the latest investment to enhance their cleaning offerings and better tackle even the toughest jobs: the Clorox Total 360 System. This system uses electrostatic technology to enable superior surface coverage and more effectively eliminate illness-causing pathogens, helping provide customers with top quality service and ensure the safety of their environments.

This flu season proved challenging for all states including Iowa – for example, in the span of a single week, three long term care facilities experienced influenza outbreaks. Outbreaks have severe and far-reaching effects on customers between facility closures, absenteeism and losses in productivity. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), on average, productivity losses related to absenteeism costs employers $1,685 per employee annually. The illness-causing germs that contribute to high rates of absenteeism can survive on surfaces from days to months making comprehensive cleaning and disinfection critical to safeguarding facilities' environments.

SmartClean strives to provide only the best services and solutions of their customers, which is why they invest in the Clorox Total 360 System. With the addition of cutting-edge electrostatic technology, SmartClean found they could deliver a higher value as it allows them to do their job faster and more efficiently – the system can cover up to 18,000 sq. ft. per hour, using 65 percent less solution and working up to four times faster than traditional cleaners.

The Clorox Total 360 System works by using electrostatic technology to charge Clorox disinfecting and sanitizing solutions. The charge attracts the solutions to surrounding surfaces with a force stronger than gravity allowing them to uniformly wrap and coat surfaces, including even the hardest-to-reach areas that can be often missed by manual cleaning.

"SmartClean is about being able to tackle any job asked of us by a customer, no matter how tough. The Clorox Total 360 System goes above and beyond traditional cleaning methods. Its proven electrostatic technology offers a safe way to cover more surface areas while eliminating illness-causing germs. This is a much more efficient and effective way of cleaning for our customers while saving our employees time and labor," said Zelko Francic, President, SmartClean.

Since purchasing the electrostatic sprayer, SmartClean has already received positive feedback from customers.

"All of our customers are asking for this product to be brought into their facilities – after the tough flu season we experienced, preventing illness is top of mind for our customers. The customers we have serviced with the Clorox Total 360 System could not be more impressed," Francic added.

SmartClean uses the Clorox Total 360 System to treat a wide range of Central Iowa-area facilities - from health and medical clinics to office buildings. There's not a facility they clean which wouldn't benefit from this safe and effective electrostatic technology cleaning system.
