Prepare For Fall With Facility Disinfection Services -  Blog Post Image

Now is the perfect time to start preparing for your building’s fall/winter cleaning plan. Routine facility cleaning and disinfection services is a great way to help guarantee your building is clean, healthy and safe. There are many different solutions including Hand Wiping, Air Purification Systems, Electrostatic Spray Disinfection, BioProtectUs™ Systems, and UVC Light Disinfection.


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 and remove any 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: Deep cleaning and hard work that involves hand wiping or scraping unwanted dirt, grime, or residue

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

The issue of indoor air quality concerns many people these days. It is essential to have a way to purify the air from harmful pollutants. The best way to do this is through the use of air purification systems, air filters or air scrubbing systems.

  • 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 are excellent for construction and healthcare organizations as they are highly effective at removing both airborne and settled dust and bacteria.
  • Air Filters filter out particulate matter before it has time to spread into the air.



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




The BIOPROTECTUs™ System uses patented, registered technologies: SmartTouch®, a List N disinfectant, to disinfect surfaces against viruses, bacteria, and germs; 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 (3 months).

  • 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!


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.

  • 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
  • UV Water Purification

Regardless of the industry you work in, environmental cleaning and disinfection services are more important than ever to the health and safety of you and your building occupants.
