Problems in the Transportation Industry
The public transportation industry, including buses, trains and airplanes, is susceptible to viruses and bacteria as passengers from local, regional and international destinations come together in one space. Passengers bring viruses with them and leave them on seats, handles, railings, in washrooms and a myriad of other surfaces. Even when cleaning staff are diligent, the potential for viruses and bacteria being left behind is significant. When Norovirus, rhinoviruses or influenza outbreaks occur, the problem becomes significantly magnified as viruses can survive on surfaces for up to four days.
Use of Standard Cleaners
The present technology used by the transportation industry uses 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
Since research studies have shown that ViroForce 1000 can kill 99.99% of all Norovirus, rhinovirus and bacterial pathogens in a treated space. Since it works as a gaseous composition, it sanitizes both soft surfaces and inaccessible areas. It is therefore the perfect solution for use in sanitizing the interiors of buses, trains and planes.
Omega’s ViroForce 1000 is a mobile automated disinfecting device using ozone gas made form ambient air. It has a fairly quick turn-around, based on the size of the interior space. After treatment, the space is 99.99% sanitized from viruses and bacteria and can be safely re-occupied with no adverse effects on materials or occupants.
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.
