If 2020 taught us anything, it’s to expect the unexpected and to be more cautious in our daily lives.

Business owners in particular should proceed with extra caution as they start to open back up at full capacity.

Unfortunately, masks and social distancing alone just won’t cut it.

As you begin to transition back into your daily work operations, you’ll need to invest in new technology to keep your employees and customers safe.

Of all the new innovations that have arisen from the pandemic, these are the top 3 that all businesses should be using to fight COVID-19:

1. UVC Disinfectant

UVC disinfection has been around for decades, but it wasn’t until COVID-19 struck that its demand skyrocketed. 

UVC water disinfectant, like our LUX, SULAOS, and LUMARS, are typically used in hotels and nursing homes where sterile water is needed for laundry.

When it comes to surface disinfection, mobile UVC technology like the AURA can clear a room of 99.9% of viruses and bacteria in just 25 minutes. Simply wheel it into the desired room, plug it in, and let the magic happen.

Given that the coronavirus is an airborne virus, air disinfectant will be highly necessary in crowded indoor areas like restaurants and convention centers.

If you run a business that gets a lot of foot traffic, your first thought will probably be to stock up on HEPA air filters. These High-Efficiency Particulate Air filters are up to 99.99998% effective at filtering airborne particles that are less than 0.3 microns (COVID-19 is around 0.125 microns). 

This sounds ideal–except for the fact that air filters only work against the microbes that they come in contact with, leaving millions of other harmful particles (potentially COVID) lingering in the air. Because of this, HEPA air filters must be paired with other safety protocols in order to increase effectiveness.

Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) air scrubbers on the other hand, like Spiro-Max, work by using non-toxic UVC light to sanitize and purify air continuously as it circulates throughout your facility. Spiro-Max can kill up to 99.9% of viruses and bacteria–both airborne and on surfaces. 

It can either be suspended into the upper air space of your building or installed directly within your HVAC ducting. Unlike HEPA filters, Spiro-Max runs 24/7, and its bulbs only need to be replaced once per year.   

2. Long-Lasting Disinfectant Spray

UVC disinfectant isn’t for everyone. Not all businesses need water or air disinfectant, but everyone needs surface disinfectant–especially one that can last for up to 90 days.

OMNI Shield is one of the best tools used to fight COVID-19. It is a water-based, nontoxic antimicrobial spray that works for up to 3 months at a time. All you need to do is spray down your everyday disinfectant, wait for it to dry, then spray OMNI Shield on top. This will lock in the initial layer of disinfectant and keep it working for months.

3. Temperature Screening Kiosks

Medical News Today has confirmed that 78% of all COVID-19 sufferers experience a fever. With this statistic in mind, ordering a temperature screening kiosk for your business is one of the best ways to keep your employees and customers safe.

SafeScreen in particular utilizes infrared technology to quickly and accurately scan the face of each person who walks up to it for a fever. If it detects a fever, it will alert the administrator and person being scanned. It can also be programmed into your security system to only open the doors for people with a normal temperature. 

Not to mention, SafeScreen is also much faster and safer than using a temperature gun to manually check each person for a fever as they walk into your building.
