1) Does Surface Armor cost more than my current cleaning/disinfection protocol?
Surface Armor cleans, disinfects and protects which can yield up to a 30% reduction in current cleaning/disinfection costs. To achieve this level of benefit it is necessary to adjust your current cleaning/disinfecting protocol. Ask us for the numbers!
2) Do you have proof that my bacteria content will be reduced as a result of using Surface Armor?
Yes! Using Surface Armor reduces bacteria content by 80%. Ask us for specific data!
3) How do you apply Surface Armor?
There are 2 methodologies for applying Surface Armor. The preferred recommendation is to have it sprayed by a certified trained technician to ensure its successful application and maximum effectiveness. For small applications, it may be applied by the customer using any common spray bottle.
4) How often should Surface Armor be applied?
The organosiline molecule covalently bonds to surfaces creating an inhospitable environment for microbes which destroys bacteria 24hrs a day 7 days a week until it is removed. As a guideline, Surface Armor can protect for “Months not Minutes”. In highly abrasive environments, where surfaces are actually eroded away, more frequent application may be necessary.
5) How do I know that the applied product is still working?
Regular testing is performed with a luminometer by a certified technician to ensure that the technology is performing properly.
6) Does cleaning remove Surface Armor?
No. The organosilane molecule, once it binds to the surface, remains on the surface and continues to protect, even after repeated cleaning. A mid-range pH cleaning solution is recommended: i.e. white vinegar and water, mild detergent and water, pH neutral hydrogen peroxide, etc. Harsh chemicals can denature Surface Armors's protective qualities.
7) Do I need to clean the surface before Surface Armor is applied?
Because Surface Armor cleans and protects at the same time, it is not mandatory to clean surfaces ahead of time but it is preferred to work with pre-cleaned surfaces if possible.
8) Is Surface Armor flammable?
No. Unlike other surface products, Surface Armor is not flammable and does not require building fire retardant systems for use or storage.
9) Do I still need to keep disinfectant in my inventory?
Only for those surfaces which require the harshest disinfecting: i.e. toilet bowls. Modifying your current cleaning/disinfecting protocols to take advantage of the unique anti-microbial properties of Surface Armor can save money and reduce inventory costs.
