Keep Your Employees Healthy This Wither With Facility Disinfection  - Blog Image

It's cold and flu season, and with the weather getting colder, there is a high chance of getting sick if we haven’t already. People spend a lot more time indoors during cold months, allowing viruses to pass more easily from one person to another. Not to mention, the cold, dry air may weaken resistance. However, routine facility cleaning and disinfection services is a great way to help guarantee your building is clean, healthy and safe.

Whether you are in the industrial industry, an educational campus, a healthcare or commercial facility; environmental cleaning and disinfection services are more important than ever to the health and safety of you and your building occupants.


Facility Disinfection Services

As an environmental safety company, we recommend for industrial facilities to only use the best when it comes to the health and safety of you and your employees. There are many different solutions including Hand Wiping, Air Purification Systems, Electrostatic Spray Disinfection, UVC Light Disinfection and BioProtectUs™ Systems.


Hand Wiping

Sometimes it’s some oily residue that needs to be cleaned with a commercial grade degreaser, but sometimes it’s a surface that may need to be scraped to removed dirt and debris that has adhered to the surface; there are certain circumstances that special detailed cleaning is necessary. Deep cleaning involves hand wiping or scraping unwanted dirt, grime, or residue.

  • Step 1: Clean
  • Step 2: Disinfect
  • Step 3: Hand Wipe


Hughes Environmental’s technicians are experienced in infection control and OSHA trained to meet your facility’s safety requirements. We’ve performed hundreds of cleaning projects in all kinds of facilities.


Air Purification Systems

Air Filters filter out particulate matter before it has time to spread into the air. But what's more important is what they can't filter out - viruses and bacteria.

Air Purifiers capture and kill contaminants within the purifier itself. Air purifiers use one or more filtration and air treatment methods to remove pollutants from the air. 

Air Scrubbers utilizes a sear and retrieve method to eliminate contaminants in the indoor air. Air scrubbers are excellent for construction and healthcare organizations as they are highly effective at removing both airborne and settled dust and bacteria.


Electrostatic Spray Disinfection

The Electrostatic Sprayer is a cordless backpack that offers a full room cleaning by electrically charging the chemical solution so that when released, the solution quickly bonds to surfaces instead of falling straight to the floor. The droplets pass an electrode inside the nozzle creating a magnetically charged spray that seeks out and wraps around all touch points and grounded room surfaces. Based on CDC Guidelines, areas that need to be given specific attention include:

  • Workstations
  • Counter tops
  • Doorknobs/Handles
  • Elevator/Buttons
  • Security Card Readers
  • Faucets
  • Escalator handrails


UVC Light Disinfection

UVC Lighting is a disinfection method that uses short-wavelength ultraviolet light to kill or inactivate microorganisms by destroying nucleic acids and disrupting their DNA, leaving them unable to perform vital cellular functions. UVC refers to ultraviolet light with wavelengths between 200 – 280 nanometers (nm). Light in the UVC wavelength can be used for disinfecting hospitals, sterilizing surfaces, destroying harmful micro-organisms in the air.

By treating the air circulating in your heating and cooling system, UV germicidal lamps can kill mold and destroy airborne viruses and bacteria that, ultimately, lead to colds, flus and other illnesses. The best practices for industrial facilities include:

  • UVC Lighting at the Coil
  • In-duct UVGI Lighting
  • Upper Air UVC
  • UVC Light Disinfection Wand
  • Mobile Remote UVC Disinfection System
  • Ceiling/Wall Mountable Germicidal UVC Systems




The BIOPROTECTUs™ System uses patented, registered technologies: SmartTouch®, a List N disinfectant, to disinfect surfaces against viruses, bacteria, and germs, and BIOPROTECT™ RTU antimicrobial surface protectant, to keep surfaces free of odor- and stain-causing bacteria, fungi (mold and mildew), and algae between cleanings, for up to 90 days.

  • Step 1: Start off by cleaning and removing dirt, grime, and oils using a standard cleaning agent.
  • Step 2: Disinfect areas using the EPA list N: Hospital Grade Disinfectant, like SmartTouch®.
  • Step 3: BIOPROTECT™ - Apply the antimicrobial surface coating. Once fully dried, you have finished the Hughes 3-Step Cleaning Service!
