Specifically engineered to provide the highest possible coverage rate, STEP 1’s formulation includes proprietary agents and processes that not only increase its ability to spread and produce an exceptionally small application droplet size, but also enable it to penetrate both hard and porous surfaces. These unique characteristics increase both STEP 1’s coverage rate and antimicrobial efficacy.
Equally important, is STEP 1 achieves its extensive Coverage Rates in less time, and with less effort than any similar product. As the old saying goes, “Time is Money,” and for most of us, it’s true. As such, the amount of time and the level of effort required to effectively apply a sanitizer or disinfectant must also be considered when measuring its true cost. And no similar product is faster or easier to apply than One-Step, No-Rinse, No-Wipe, No-Gloves or other PPE Required, Spray & Walk Away STEP 1.
Utilizing an electric fogger to apply a disinfectant or other antimicrobial product is another way to ensure you are receiving the most bang for your germ-killing buck, as fogging is by far the fastest, most efficient application method. In fact, using a fogger to apply these products can increase their Coverage Rates dramatically, while also reducing application times by as much as 80%!
It is, however, important to note that very few disinfectants are approved for application by fogging. The reason for this dilemma is most disinfectants are extremely toxic and, as clearly stated on their labels, present “Hazards to Humans and Domestic Animals.” Because foggers dispense these products in the form of a very fine airborne mist or “fog,” their use can greatly increase the risk of exposure to installers, as well as any other people or pets who may wander into an area being treated.
Due to its efficacy, safety profile and Category IV EPA Toxicity Rating (the very lowest toxicity rating the EPA can assign to any disinfectant), PermaSafe STEP 1 is one of the few disinfectants that is approved for safe application by fogging.
Its Category IV Toxicity Rating also means no gloves, respirators or other personal protection equipment are necessary when applying STEP 1, which, in turn, means less set-up time, less application time, and no gloves, respirators or other personal protection equipment to purchase, wear or constantly replace.
Even its potency pays. Because STEP 1 is formulated, approved and EPA registered as a Food Surface Sanitizer, when properly applied, it kills 99.999% of harmful bacteria on hard surfaces in under 60 seconds, after being diluted 9 parts water to 1 part STEP 1.
STEP 1 is also an EPA registered “One-Step Disinfectant Cleaner” and NSF certified “No Rinse, No Wipe,” even on food contact surfaces. These rare product attributes mean that cleaning and compliant disinfection or sanitization can be achieved in one simple step, and without the need for any post-application rinsing or wiping, saving the user considerable time and effort and begging the question: What could possibly be faster or easier?
