Green Janitorial Innovations Spur New Tech Company Focused on Occupant Health

DES MOINES, Iowa -- With over eight years in providing green, sustainable, microbial protection to businesses, schools, and medical facilities throughout the Midwest, The Heritage Group of Des Moines, IA launched a new tech company, SPMC, LLC in the summer of 2020 to be led by SPMC President John Bergman and SPMC Technical Director Joe Johnson.

More than vacuuming, cleaning, and dusting, Heritage Building Maintenance, the custodial and building management arm of The Heritage Group, set themselves apart with their commitment to the integration of WELL building best practices and use of science-based research and technology. Science-Proven Microbial Control® was born out of their objective of cleaning for health. This not only helped customers maintain the wellness of their buildings but also helped protect those who occupy them.

"Disinfecting has always been a thorn in the side of a sustainable green cleaning program," said Johnson. "Over the last eight years we've worked hard to develop Science-Proven Microbial Control® into a real, solutions-based program."

In the spring of 2020, when businesses across the nation were suddenly challenged with crisis-level health and operational obstacles, Heritage's years of experience in microbial control and innovation turned itself into a real-world tested, science-based process that facilitated the founding of SPMC, LLC - the tech company supported by their trademarked program.

From the initial announcements of pandemic spread and the challenges that faced building management, the SPMC, LLC team saw increased interest from Building Services and Commercial Real Estate Management Companies fostering continuous growth and licensing opportunities throughout the year.

While the timing for a start-up could have been challenging for some, SPMC has continued to grow their family of licensees - all while supporting their current customer list including Paramount Building Solutions in the Minneapolis/St. Paul market, Specialty Maintenance Service out of Omaha, as well as Heritage Building Maintenance in Des Moines. SPMC also continues to educate their business clients and associates on the benefits of Science-Proven Microbial Control®, WELL building best practices, and the use of science and data that supplement traditional cleaning and building maintenance services.

"This takes janitorial services beyond 'straightening up'," says Greg Theroux, Founder and CEO of Heritage Building Maintenance and SPMC, LLC. "While we're in the cleaning business, really, our job is to make our customers' workspaces healthier."

As the Heritage Building Maintenance team continues to provide healthy solutions in custodial and building maintenance services, they and others will become licensees through SPMC, LLC to provide a technologically advanced program that includes a multi-step process, and a scientifically-tested, EPA registered, antimicrobial surface protectant. These treatments are applied through their Test - Treat - Track™ process, creating a superior, data-based cleaning and protection protocol.

John Bergman, who comes from decades of commercial and corporate real estate management, joined the leadership team at SPMC, LLC in January of this year. Together with Technical Director, Joe Johnson, SPMC will continue to innovate and grow its offerings.

"This is so far beyond cleaning, we can't consider ourselves anything less than a tech company," said Bergman. "The data used to support our licensees is groundbreaking."

Bergman went on to explain that through their Science-Proven Microbial Control® program, licensees use testing to set a baseline of cleanliness - at a microbial level - within a building. This establishes a scientifically trackable, data-based health and wellness microbial control protocol for each and every space they serve, providing long lasting protection beyond cleaning and focusing on occupant health and safety.

"Considering our current health-conscious corporate culture," said Bergman. "The availability of this technology sets a new standard for health in the built environment. By providing long-lasting microbial control we re-set the need for hyper disinfecting. This not only provides health and wellness to buildings and occupants, but focuses on sustainability and green best practices."

SPMC, LLC is located in Des Moines, Iowa and currently serves a growing list of licensees and partner companies throughout the Midwest.

Tristate UV Sanitizing launches state-of-the-art ultraviolet sanitizing service that kills COVID-19 and the coronavirus mutations, restoring customer safety and profits to tri-state businesses

NANUET, N.Y. -- Tristate UV Sanitizing, a disinfection-as-a-service (DaaS) company, is offering free demos for a limited time of its hospital-grade Ultraviolet disinfection to tri-state area businesses. Tristate UV's goal is to help restore customer confidence and local business profits by offering a new standard of medical-grade hygiene that enhances health and safety. Tristate offers disinfection-as-a service at affordable rates and uses UVC light-sensitive markers that scientifically validate to customers that the Tristate disinfected areas of their business are COVID-free.

Tristate is a Dimer authorized dealer that sells the UVHammer mobile cart to corporations, professional cleaning services, and facility management companies.

Tristate UV Sanitizing differentiates its service from traditional chemical cleaning services with the use of the Dimer UVHammer, a revolutionary mobile UV solution that emits potent germicidal light that is lab certified to disinfect pathogens, germs, and the COVID-19 family viruses, including the more virulent UK COVID-19 mutation.

The UV Hammer simultaneously disinfects both airborne pathogens and contaminated high-touch surfaces. The machine utilizes the same patented technology as Dimer's award-winning GermFalcon solution - the germ-killing UV device for aircraft cabins that has since been brought to market globally by Honeywell and recognized as one of TIME's Best Inventions of 2020.

Tristate UV Sanitizing can disinfect a 1,500 sqft business in less than 7 minutes, and a 3,000 sqft space in less than 15 minutes. The company doesn't use any wet chemicals that emit harmful toxic fumes and residues, or chemical fogging that requires the closing of your business. Tristate UV's targeted process rapidly sanitizes any space without requiring businesses to close - ensuring the highest degree of health and safety for customers and staff, while maximizing the business's profit potential.

"We are thrilled to offer this state-of-the-art sanitation service that enhances customer and business health across the tri-state area. We're committed to restoring consumer confidence and business profits by delivering hospital-grade disinfection services that are proven to kill germs and viruses, including COVID-19 family of viruses and the more deadly UK COVID mutation," says Justin Candullo, President of Tristate UV Sanitizing.

"Our products play a key role in bringing business back," Dimer's co-founder Elliot Kreitenberg continued, "We mostly work with large organizations, but Tristate UV makes Dimer's technology accessible and affordable for small businesses that need it now."

Cincinnati Company Develops Ground-Breaking Steam Technology for Sanitizing Amid Pandemic

CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Bayzi Corporation has developed steam technology needed to quickly fight the spread of viruses like COVID-19 as well as bacteria, fungi, bed bugs and biofilms. They manufacture antimicrobial steam devices that will very quickly eliminate microbes, bugs and also provide a quick way to clean dust and grease. The machines use just water and no chemicals.

The patented line of antimicrobial steam cleaners called SaniZap® safely sanitize almost any surface, leaving no residue, moisture or harmful chemicals. The process is 600 times faster than chemical sanitization, making it ideal for following CDC guidelines that call for frequent sanitization.

"There was so much interest in portable high temperature steam devices due to the pandemic that our team pulled these products from the backburner and has been working hard to make this technology and the products available quickly," said Anu Vissa, CEO of Bayzi.

The portable equipment is available in different models to accommodate a range of facilities and price points. SaniZap-1 and SaniZap-Mini are handheld devices well suited for small spaces and small businesses. The SaniZap-4 is a versatile multipurpose cleaning workhorse on wheels with a lot more power. It can be used at lower steam temperatures with soap or detergent to quickly clean visible dirt and grime and can also be used at higher steam temperatures for anti-microbial sanitizing.

The protypes have been demonstrated in schools, hospitals, and restaurants.

* Chemicals generally reduce or eliminate specific microbes. Steam covers a broad range.

* No fumes, odors, sticky residues, or accumulating residues and toxicity.

* 'No-Contact' method, is self-drying and requires no wiping, reducing waste.

* Reduces cross contamination.

* Allows Increase frequency of sanitizing as recommended by CDC, especially of critical areas.

* Benefits employees, staff and patients/clients, reducing their exposure to chemicals.

* Overall better infection control outcomes for healthcare facilities.

* Green method - safe for the environment.

Savings. SaniZap® can be worked into any sanitizing regimen as addition or replacement to an existing cleaning rotation. Savings include no additional chemicals or towels to purchase, no 'wiping-down' labor, reduced waste, and increased productivity as there is no need to 'wait-out' chemical application.

More information at https://bayzi.com/.

SaniZap® models may be ordered by contacting info@bayzi.com. Take advantage of significant discounts during product launch in March 2021.

New Study Reveals Fibercare Cleaning Services Save Hotels Money, Energy and Contributes to Healthier Environment

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. -- In September 2020, Robert Mapleton, owner and engineer, RPM Energy Consulting, LLC performed an independent study at an Extended Stay America hotel in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida to determine the effect of cleaning the coils of the hotel's guestroom packaged terminal air conditioner (PTAC) units on cooling energy usage. The test was used to determine whether Fibercare PTAC cleaning service results in lower energy costs. The test was performed on four guest rooms and revealed that the hotel could actually save up to 67 percent on energy costs with cleaner air conditioning units.

Prior to the test, annual energy costs for the four rooms weighed in at $1,750. After cleaning, the cost went down to just $591, a savings of more than $1,185 for just four rooms. Why? Under-maintained PTAC units consume approximately twice as much energy to provide a comfortable environment.

"When PTAC cleaning is done the right way, the benefits it delivers really are multifaceted," Mapleton says. "Units last longer, deliver cleaner and fresher air and save large amounts of money and energy."

In addition to saving money and energy, PTAC cleaning also contributes to a healthier environment which, in times of COVID-19, and thereafter, will certainly be a benefit that consumers will seek and demand.

"In 2020, we've all experienced what it's like to wear a mask and what it feels like when we take it off - a breath of fresh air," Ashton Grudnowski, president, Fibercare says. "PTAC cleaning is a similar concept. Once the dirt and dust are removed, the unit can breathe easy again and run at optimal performance."

Grudnowski adds that now is the ideal time for hotel and retirement communities to plan a deep cleaning.

"When the time comes for people to move around more freely, they'll be ready for action," she says. "We're focused on providing quality services that are good for the environment and also hit home for the bottom line."

StallStash Demand Grows as Focus on Public Restroom Cleanliness Increases

ST. LOUIS, Mo. -- From schools and restaurants to healthcare facilities and airports, management is working to find solutions to minimize viral spread by providing cleaner and safer restrooms for their visitors and employees. And, StallStash is working to meet that demand. StallStash is a PPE plexiglass restroom partition shelf that protects phones, purses and other belongings at stalls, urinals and sink areas from germs, damage and theft.

Businesses and other institutions are in hot pursuit of new ways to improve their patrons' restroom experience because, according to the 10th Annual Healthy Hand Washing Survey by Bradley Corp., consumers will frequent a location and even spend more money if they know their restrooms are clean and well-maintained.

"Increased awareness of germs and bacteria has changed our behavior regarding contact and hygiene," Robert Kodner, president of StallStash, says. "According to a recent study, 42 percent of people are more concerned about using public restrooms now than they were this time last year."

Most people who enter a public restroom bring their valuables and personal items with them into this vulnerable space. StallStash not only eliminates the stress and worry of dropping or damaging a phone or purse, but it also protects the person's health and belongings by keeping them clean, safe and protected from bacteria and germs.

StallStash is budget-friendly (less than $25), easy to attach to all standard partitions, and well-engineered to fit small and large items such as wallets or backpacks. StallStash units are designed for all public and commercial restrooms, and are easy to clean. And, a StallStash unit can hold up to eight pounds.

"Sixty percent of us visit a public or commercial restroom one to five times per week," Kodner adds. "And, COVID-19 has permanently altered our attitudes regarding the sanitary conditions of public and commercial restrooms. StallStash has proven to be an affordable and effective way to improve the restroom experience for people, worldwide."

Product benefits: https://stallstash.com/benefits

About StallStash

StallStash restroom partitions are made in the U.S. Its clients include medical facilities, restaurants, commercial buildings, shopping centers, event spaces, schools, fitness centers, stadiums, transportation terminals, places of worship and tourist attractions.

Aeroscape’s Snow and Ice Management Fleet is Ready to Take on Winter

Midvale, Utah -- The rest of the year, Aeroscape is an award-winning property maintenance and landscape design company, but during the winter, Aeroscape becomes your commercial snow removal specialists ready to take on even the biggest winter storms.

Aeroscape Invests in Snow and Ice Management Equipment

Aeroscape has made a significant investment in its snow and ice management equipment over the last several years, including purchasing dozens of new trucks, poly-blades for parking structures, as well as winter storm-specific upgrades, including new box plows for our front-end loaders and skid-steers.

"It was time to upgrade our investment in snow and ice management equipment," says Ryan Brown, President/CEO of Aeroscape. "Our retail and large commercial properties required faster response times and quicker snow and ice removal, so we took the plunge and upgraded our fleet."

Aeroscape not only invested in new snow removal equipment for parking lots, access roads, and parking garages but added snow blowers specifically designed to handle sidewalks and entries. They also outfit their landscaping fleet to manage Utah's storms, including preparing front-end loaders for snow stacking, and when that is too much, transferring snow to the fleet of dump trucks or side-dump trailers to haul the snow off-site. They also stock up on road salt and ice melt to help keep the cleared parking lots and garages, sidewalks, and parking lots snow and ice-free for all. Aeroscape goes through 100,000 tons of road salt and over 100 tons of snowmelt on average each year.

"Nothing goes to waste here at Aeroscape. During the winter, our crew remains on the alert for winter storms. Once the storm arrives, we transform into a fast and efficient snow removal fleet," says Chad Spenser, Chief Operating Officer at Aeroscape.

Aeroscape's Winter Storm Operations Center

Aeroscape is on-call 24/7 when a winter storm threatens and activates a winter storm call center to coordinate snow removal efforts for their clients. Because Aeroscape uses GPS tracking on all of their heavy equipment, the call center can dispatch snow removal fleets at a moment's notice to where they are needed most. For more information, give us a call at 801.569.2383 or fill out a simple online form at the bottom of our snow and ice removal services page, and an Aeroscape account manager will get in touch with you.

Entrepreneur Moves Once Seasonal Lake Orion Sanitation Company to Year-Long Business Model

LAKE ORION, Mich. -- When Darin Gross purchased Turner Sanitation in early 2020, he never imagined that re-shaping the business would take him through a pandemic and increased need for his services. But as the company has steered toward additional services and greater community needs, the once seasonal business has been transformed into a full-year operation.

"There were a lot of misnomers associated with our company for a long time. For instance, most people believed that we couldn't pump septic systems in the wintertime," said Gross. "Plus, in the new COVID world we live in right now, homes not only have more people living there, but the winter months are going to heighten their lack of ability to get out of the house. This is why it's important for people to know we can pump in the winter."

Turner Sanitation, a family-run company serving North Oakland County homes and businesses for decades, had originally built its revenue model around seasonal work from April to November, but has now become more agile in its ability to re-shape its service offerings, leading to no "down seasons" for the company, including the need for toilet rentals and cleaning services. One of the advantages of Turner's year-round business model is that its employees are also on a year-round schedule meaning no seasonal layoffs.

"Before I bought the company, most everyone was laid off during the offseason. This year, my goal is to keep our folks employed throughout the year," said Gross.

One Turner service that has become more robust, aligned with a large increase in home sales in 2020, is the company's ability to provide septic inspections (video scopes) quickly and effectively for real estate transactions. Macomb County, for instance, now requires a septic inspection before a home is sold, and in many communities where population growth and new large home construction has put a stress on the community infrastructure, septic inspections have become a must.

"It's a new service for us and it's probably one of the least expensive and most important decisions you can make before closing on a home," said Gross.

With state infrastructure becoming a main economic driver in Michigan, Gross has also gotten Turner ready with a major purchase of combination toilets and sinks for use in road construction activities and special events. Additionally, with winter's snow and ice on the horizon, Turner has become extremely adept at septic pumping services for all weather conditions.

"People don't think we can pump in the wintertime, but that's actually the most efficient time for homeowners and businesses," said Gross. "There's usually a real rush to get septic systems pumped in the summer and possibly pay higher prices so they can expedite the job. We don't have these issues in the winter, and we can find septic lids without a problem, no matter the weather."

Minnesota Property Management Firm Provides Property Owners Relief

NEW BRIGHTON, Minn. -- According to Guardian Property Management, now is the ideal time for property investors and owners to hire a property management company to help them manage their investments.

"Self-managing an investment property is never recommended, but was easier in pre-pandemic times," Jennifer Spadine, president and CEO at Guardian Property Management, says. "Now, renters are losing jobs or dealing with stressful household situations. Some are facing financial barriers to paying the rent. They and their families are working and schooling from home, causing more day-to-day maintenance needed to keep things running smoothly. Finding time to collect rent, handle resident requests or maintain the property as needed has become burdensome."

For a small percentage of the rent, Guardian Property Management will manage the property for them and provide peace of mind in stressful times. It partners its experience with property owners' investments.

Guardian Property Management distinguishes itself from its competitors in a number of ways. It refers to them as the "Three Uniques."

They are:

1 - Trusted advisors on staff (not brokers or contractors): Leasing agents, maintenance technicians and project managers

2 - Transparency. Fees and expenses are discussed with clients early on and are included in the management contract. There are no additional fees for items such as lease renewals, rental license renewals or annual processing of "Certificates of Rent Paid."

3 - Excellent client communication.

"When a client calls, we answer the phone," Spadine says.

About Guardian Property Management

Purchased in 2004, Guardian Property Management is an established, award-winning property management firm. Guardian provides full property management, extensive leasing services as well as property maintenance and repair. It services the entire Minneapolis and St. Paul metro area, including Richfield, Robbinsdale, Maple Grove, Edina, Bloomington, Blaine, Roseville, Woodbury, New Brighton, and Shoreview, among others.

It also currently services more than 250 property owners with over 800 properties of all sizes from single-family homes to multi-unit apartment buildings. It's focused on building personal relationships with property owners and residents while being responsive to their unique needs 24 hours per day.
