Nashville, Tennessee – (09/08/2020 9:00 AM EST) Germinator Mobile Sanitizing and Disinfecting is proud to announce the latest addition to its rapidly growing roster of franchise locations. The company has opened its doors in Nashville and will offer high-quality sanitizing and disinfecting services to businesses and residents in the area.
The franchise will be owned and operated by Bob Figurelli. After working in pharmaceutical sales for over 20 years in New Jersey and Manhattan hospitals and doctor’s offices, Bob saw firsthand the importance of sanitizing and disinfecting and the effects a clean environment has on employees and patients. His industry experience, coupled with the current pandemic, inspired him to open a Germinator franchise.
“Staying ahead of germs, bacteria and other microscopic organisms is key to maintaining a hygienic environment,” said Figurelli. “Germinator provides businesses and residents with a solution that is scientifically proven to be effective against germs, bacteria and viruses, and their HOCl solution doesn’t use harsh chemicals or fumes. These are crucial components as we do our best to sustain clean environments amid the pandemic.”
Germinator has developed a patent-pending process that provides a new generation of microbial protection for both commercial and residential establishments. The company first tests surfaces for ATP using a luminometer to detect light that can come from cellular activity. This measurement immediately provides the level of clean on a surface.
The next step is the application of Germinator’s Genesis surface treatment. Genesis is a one-step cleaner and broad-spectrum sanitizer and disinfectant treatment that harnesses the power of hypochlorous acid (HOCl). Derived from naturally occurring minerals, Genesis not only eliminates odors at their source but kills a wide range of bacteria, including Staphylococcus aureus, MRSA, Salmonella enterica and Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and viruses including norovirus, rotavirus and adenovirus on hard, non-porous, environmental surfaces. It meets the Association of Official Agricultural Chemists (AOAC) germicidal spray standards for Hospital Grade Disinfection and is on the EPA’s N List of products determined to meet the criteria for use against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. As a result, this treatment will eliminate bacteria and viruses that may reside in your environment without the use of harsh chemicals or fumes.
Following Genesis, Germinator applies its Shield, a water-based quaternary ammonium compound that imparts a durable bacteriostatic finish. It is EPA-registered as effective against mold, mildew, algae and odor-causing bacteria. This application creates an invisible barrier that helps combat deterioration and discoloration and promotes freshness for up to three months.
The Genesis and Shield products are applied by using an electrostatic sprayer, which is the most efficient and effective means of delivering the products to the intended application sites.
Based in Atlanta, Germinator was founded by Jeff Gill in 2015 with the vision of providing an effective method of proper sanitizing and disinfecting for businesses and households. The company launched national franchising earlier this year and has continued to rapidly expand across the country.
“We’re proud of our expansion into Nashville, and we’re looking forward to providing the community with the best in sanitizing and disinfecting,” said Gill. “Bob has spent many years working in the medical field, so he knows the importance of creating and sustaining hygienic environments — especially this day and age. We are confident in his abilities to lead the Germinator brand into this new market, and we wish him the best with the opening of his franchise.”
Upholding the highest standards of sanitizing and disinfecting, Germinator makes claims that are scientifically supported and within EPA regulations. In an effort to research and further validate its practice of sanitizing and disinfecting surfaces, the company recently created the Germinator Scientific Advisory Board. The board is made up of key leaders such as Dr. Roscoe M. Moore, Jr. —who was an Assistant to the United States Surgeon General for five administrations.
“During these unprecedented times, the need to focus on sterilizing agents within our country’s airports, public spaces and offices in order to decrease the spread of viral pathogens such as Coronavirus is essential,” states Dr. Moore. “I am extremely happy to be a part of the Germinator team and lend my expertise to what I feel is an immense asset to the containment effort.”
Germinator provides communities with a proactive solution to help create and maintain clean and hygienic environments. With Germinator, society can now have peace of mind and the freedom to live or work in a sanitized and disinfected space.
