Convention centers and conference halls can also benefit from chlorine dioxide disinfection. In these large public spaces, it is vital to keep the environment clean and safe for everyone who visits. Chlorine dioxide offers a practical solution that can help reduce the spread of germs in any venue. Killing microbes on contact helps prevent disease transmission and safeguards the health of all guests by eliminating harmful pathogens.
Chlorine dioxide is a powerful disinfectant used to quickly and effectively clean convention centers and conference halls. It works by oxidizing the molecules of bacteria, viruses, or other microorganisms in space. The oxidation process kills the microbes on contact and leaves no chemical residue or odors behind. This makes it an ideal solution for large public venues, keeping them clean without leaving any noticeable scents behind.
In addition to its germ-killing power, chlorine dioxide also provides other benefits. For example, it eliminates unpleasant odors from vinyl seating material, carpets, and air ducts. It also helps reduce bacteria levels on surfaces such as doorknobs and countertops. Finally, chlorine dioxide is safe and non-toxic, which makes it an excellent choice for disinfection in convention centers and conference halls.
Convention centers and conference halls are visited by hundreds of people daily. To ensure the safety of all visitors, it is important to maintain impeccable levels of sanitation and cleanliness. Chlorine dioxide (ClO2) is a powerful sanitizing agent that can effectively reduce the risk of germs, bacteria, and other harmful microorganisms in these public places.
Chlorine dioxide is an oxidizing agent with greater sanitizing power than chlorine bleach. This means it can destroy harmful microorganisms on surfaces more quickly than chlorine bleach or other traditional sanitization products. It also leaves no hazardous residues after use, making it a safe option for cleaning public spaces such as convention centers and conference halls.
Using chlorine dioxide in public areas begins by pre-cleaning surfaces with a mild detergent solution. Then, a ClO2 solution is sprayed onto the pre-cleaned area using either manual or automated misting systems, depending on the size of the space being treated. The ClO2 vaporizes upon contact with air and penetrates deep into porous surfaces that may not have been thoroughly cleaned before treatment began. As it does so, any germs, viruses, and other contaminants present on those surfaces are destroyed by the oxidizing properties of ClO2.
In addition to its impressive sanitization capabilities, one major advantage of using chlorine dioxide over other cleaning agents is its residual effect. When used properly, ClO2 will form an invisible layer on any treated surface, remaining active for up to several days following treatment. This ensures any newly introduced microbes or pathogens are still destroyed even if additional cleaning hasn’t been done at regular intervals as recommended by health experts.
FOGGING AND DISINFECTING LARGE SPACES. POROUS (SOFT) AND NON-POROUS (HARD) SURFACES.
Use for public access, residential application, professional HVAC, filters, air ducts, ventilation, fogging agent, mechanical coarse, hand pump, or spray. The OSHA STEL value to which ClO2 in the case of the workplace atmosphere is 0.30 PPM concentration tolerable for a 15 min period without any damage. Each gallon will treat approximately 1,000 – 1,500 sq. ft. of surface. Prepare activated solution to a strength consistent with the maximum threshold for a strength consistent with threshold in medical facilities, livestock areas, where a powerful biocide is needed, to remove airborne pathogens, for water damage and mold remediation on porous, and NON-porous surfaces including concrete, asphalt, metal, (sub)floor, carpet, and turf.
|Use-Site||CONCENTRATION||Mix EQUAL PARTS 1:1 – NaClO2 (Part A) and HCl (Part B)|
|Moderate – Non-Food Contact||100 PPM||100 drops A, with 100 drops B in 1 gallon of water. (4ml = 100 drops)|
|HVAC – Vents and Air Ducts||500 PPM||500 drops A, with 500 drops B in 1 gallon of water. (20ml = 500 drops)|
|Insecticide or Fumigant||725 PPM||725 drops A, with 725 drops B in 1 gallon of water. (29ml = 725 drops)|
Mix in the bottom corner of a designated plastic mixing container. Let the solution activate for 1 minute before dilution, then fill the container with water. Agitate until mixed. Use as a solution or as a spray, in a manner consistent with usual standards. Fogging is to be used as an adjunct to acceptable manual cleaning and disinfecting for room and environmental surfaces. People must vacate the premises during fogging treatments; a one-hour restricted entry interval (REI) is required. When fogging, VeriSan™ proper respiratory and ventilation protection must be worn. NIOSH / MSHA approved respirator with an Organic Vapor / Acid Gas Cartridge. Secure proper respiratory and eye wear protection prior to activation.
