    The rise in COVID-19 cases are prompting Chicago and other suburbs to revisit some of the regulations given to schools, restaurants and other businesses in their operations. Business owners are always looking to protect their staff and customers by stopping a potential COVID-19 spread.

    ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons, a leading provider of essential cleaning and disinfecting services in the Chicagoland area, is introducing a new antiseptic and antimicrobial service that can actively kill microorganisms on surfaces for up to 90 days.

    ServiceMaster Brands, based in Memphis, Tenn., recently entered into an exclusive agreement with Goldshield Technologies, developer of proprietary antimicrobial products which are EPA- approved for a wide variety of applications, including hospitals, daycares, schools, senior living facilities, gyms, salons and restaurants. When combined with ServiceMaster By Simon’s expert cleaning and sanitizing protocols, the new antimicrobial protection takes infection prevention beyond disinfection, helping to keep facilities free from dangerous microbes for weeks.

    “This new service has significant benefits for businesses that have high volumes of human traffic,” said Sam Simon, owner & managing director of ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons. “With our current protocol, we can thoroughly clean and disinfect a space, but it can potentially be reinfected when people come in. Goldshield antimicrobial protection prevents most bacteria from reinfecting a surface for weeks. It provides a significant additional level of protection.”

    Goldshield products can be applied via a commercial pressure sprayer or pump-sprayer to most surfaces including countertops, fabrics and carpet. It forms a strong chemical bond that will not leach off, and it remains on the surface even through subsequent cleanings. The water-based formulation poses no respiratory or contact risk.

    Goldshield products have been the subjects of more than 40 evidence-based studies conducted by independent laboratories, including three peer-reviewed studies in the American Journal of Infection Control. In a 2017 article in AJIC, it stated, “Sustained reductions of bioburden with the monthly application of (Goldshield) may be associated with significant reductions in the risk of health care associated infections.”1. It has been proven to kill 99.9%-99.99% of disease-causing organisms.

    “By offering this new service, our goal is to help business owners, educators, restaurateurs and medical professionals among others to prevent recontamination of their environments,” Simons said. “Now more than ever, having a solid and effective cleaning plan that protects people should be first and foremost in the mind of any owner.”
