Durham, NC – (07/06/2020 7:00 AM EST) – Germinator Mobile Sanitizing and Disinfecting, a broad-spectrum sanitization, disinfection and deodorization provider, is continuing to expand its services across the United States. The company is proud to announce that it has opened a location in Durham. The franchise will be owned and operated by Hunter Credle and will offer door-to-door sanitizing and disinfecting services to commercial and residential properties.
Germinator has developed a patent-pending process that provides a new generation of microbial protection for both commercial and residential establishments. Since February alone, the company has expanded to include 15 franchise locations across the country, with new locations in the pipeline.
"We are excited to see our Durham location opening and particularly proud to see Hunter Credle, the location's owner, at the helm," said Jeff Gill, CEO of Germinator. "He has a real passion for helping the community, and he is a great addition to the Germinator family."
Hunter, a teacher who was made inactive due to schools being closed amid the pandemic, decided to open a Germinator Mobile Sanitizing and Disinfecting franchise in Durham with the mission of creating clean and hygienic environments for businesses and residents throughout the community. His business venture has turned into a passion in which he owns and operates alongside his family.
"When I first purchased the Germinator franchise in Durham, I never dreamed it would mean as much to my family as it does," said Credle. "We have a real love for our community, and we are excited to be able to interact with businesses and residents in an impactful way by helping to create clean and hygienic environments as we navigate the pandemic."
Germinator's patent-pending methodology is the most unique and cost-effective means of providing enhanced antimicrobial protection for businesses and residences. 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.
Upholding the highest standards of sanitization 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.
Senior board member, Dr. David Miller, supports Germinator's process by saying, "The Germinator Genesis platform and the Shield microbial barrier application are at the forefront for facilities' remediation of infectious diseases. This allows patients, providers, consumers, and commuters to have a high degree of confidence in the facility's cleanliness, which is an absolute necessity during the current COVID-19 pandemic."
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 continues to expand across the country, providing communities with a proactive solution to creating and maintaining 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 environment.
