Fighting Infectious Disease with Cutting-Edge Disinfecting Technology

For situations where the usual remediation and restoration procedures are not enough, SteraMist can help.  Moore Advanced Solutions Group partners with TOMI Environmental Solutions to offer customers SteraMist’s cutting-edge disinfecting technology for infectious disease.  SteraMist BIT produces reactive oxygen species (specifically the hydroxyl radical) in order to achieve high levels of disinfection.  Application of SteraMist kills bacteria and mold (including spores), inactivates viruses, and neutralizes chemical and bacterial agents.

In hospitals and other healthcare facilities, SteraMist delivers superior disinfection, which can reduce the risk of cross-contamination among patients.  SteraMist is also useful in a variety of industries, including restaurants, hotels, daycare centers, and sports facilities. In addition to providing unparalleled disinfection, SteraMist is also used to treat mold infestations and hard-to-dispel smells, such as smoke or skunk.

The Advantage of SteraMist BIT

Many industries demand a high degree of success in their disinfecting procedures. Failure to adequately disinfect can result in higher rates of infection, having devastating effects on hospitals, healthcare facilities, and nursing homes as well as education or daycare centers.  Businesses in other industries can be harmed by buildings that are contaminated with unpleasant smells or harmful mold.  Disinfection and decontamination must be done with a high degree of effectiveness and reliability.  SteraMist offers customers these advantages over other disinfection and decontamination methods:

  • Produces high-level disinfection as opposed to simple manual cleaning procedures, which have been documented to leave behind 30% to 60% of surface pathogens.
  • Works quickly, taking only 5 seconds per square foot to apply with a 7-minute contact time to disinfect.
  • Does not damage equipment so rooms do not need to be emptied. Even highly technical equipment can be left out.
  • Does not leave any toxic residue. There is no need to wipe or rinse surfaces.
  • Can reach the entire room, leaving no surface untreated by human error and is even effective on hard-to-clean surfaces.
  • Is validated to comply with Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) standards.

Effective Disinfection

SteraMist BIT is a patented two-step process that aerosolizes and activates a low concentration hydrogen peroxide solution to produce a fine aqueous mist.  This mist contains a high concentration of reactive oxidative species (ROS), mostly hydroxyl radicals, which cause damage to pathogenic organisms.   SteraMist has been shown to be effective in reducing or eliminating bacteria and viruses, including MRSA, H1N1, and Clostridium difficile.
