Problems in the BioRecovery Industry
Whether its decontamination or hazardous waste removal at trauma scenes, 240 independent companies (members of the American BioRecovery Association) provide these services. Trauma scenes frequently contain biological infectious waste including blood, body fluids, viral pathogens such as HIV, Hepatitis B, or Norwalk virus, bacterial pathogens, or hazardous chemicals including chemicals used in crime scene investigation.
Use of Standard Cleaners
The present technology used by the trauma scene clean-up industry employs a manual cleaning process in conjunction with disinfecting liquids such as accelerated H2O2. This consists of a physical cleaning process that is labour intensive, low-tech and often unreliable because it is not uniform in its application.
The Solution: ViroForce 1000
Research studies have shown that ViroForce 1000 can kill 99.99% of all Norovirus and bacterial pathogens in a treated space. It also works on toxic molds and fungi. Since it is a gas, it sanitizes both hard and soft surfaces and inaccessible areas. It is therefore the perfect solution for use in sanitizing trauma scenes.
Omega’s ViroForce 1000 is a mobile automated disinfecting device using ozone gas made from ambient air. It has a 30 minute turnaround time per average-sized room. After treatment, the room or public space is 99.99% sanitized from viruses and bacteria and can be safely re-occupied with no adverse effects on materials or occupants. Providing these clean-up services is greatly simplified and the sanitizing effectiveness is enhanced with ViroForce 1000.
Viroforce: Odor Elimination Technology
The ViroForce cutting edge technology is designed to safely remove odor-causing molecules, as well. Odors caused by smoking, alcohol, fire and from building maintenance chemicals can be rapidly and permanently removed from a room. For example use of the powerful Viroforce technology permanently removes odors from a standard ocean cruise line cabin in 10 minutes including the conversion of ozone back into oxygen.
