Micro Fog and ElectroStatic Application Disinfecting of Our Fairless Hills Branch

03.08.2020

At YMCA of Bucks County, we fully understand that the spirit of health and wellbeing includes trust and peace of mind in your wellness provider. As a demonstrated action of our care, we secured an outside professional company to deep clean and sanitize our entire Fairless Hills branch - including child care. 

We are electing to continue to move forward with disinfecting our facility as a precautionary measure and to protect our members and staff against cold and flu viruses.

Best of all, we are able to perform this sanitation without the negative impact of facility closure. Sunday evening, March 8, into the early morning, the company Medicleaning, will perform Micro Fog and ElectroStatic Application Disinfecting. 

Used in medical facilities, college universities, and clean room situations that require high level disinfection, ElectroStatic Application Disinfecting is a positive charged application of disinfecting agents for more complete coverage. Micro Fog allows the disinfecting agent to penetrate areas not accessible by normal cleaning practices. The system works by delivering a powerful flow of charged particles that are attracted to surfaces with a force stronger than gravity, allowing the solution to easily reach and uniformly coat surfaces including germ hotspots like the sides, underside, and backside of surfaces, where conventional cleaning methods might miss. 

Through the use of a CDC and CBC recommended cleaning agent, the service kills 99.9% of bacteria in 5 seconds including Coronavirus, MRSA, Norovirus, and cold/flu viruses, and more in 2 minutes or less. Unlike using a spray bottle and rag, this process provides 100% coverage and is ideal for large area facilities such as schools, airports, work camps and healthcare buildings.

We thank Medicleaning for their quick response this evening, but most of all, we thank you, our members, for continuing to practice CDC guidelines in relationship to combating the spread of the Coronavirus. We look forward to serving you tomorrow, at the Y!
