MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Orkin Canada has introduced its new Orkin VitalClean service designed to quickly eliminate a wide variety of pathogens and provide a solution for businesses seeking to keep employees and customers safe.
The new service uses a Health Canada-registered disinfectant labelled for use against a wide variety of pathogens and is included on Health Canada’s list of products that meet their criteria for use against SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19). When applied at full strength in accordance with the product label, it will kill 100 per cent of bacteria and viruses on hard, non-porous surfaces and will also sanitize soft, porous surfaces.
“Orkin VitalClean is an effective option for helping reduce risk and restore a safer and healthier business environment, which is critical to getting our economy up and running again,” says Rob Quinn, SVP of Operations, Orkin Canada. “This product has been used for years to disinfect commercial facilities after pest cleanouts. We are now pleased that it can serve a broader public-health purpose as well.”
Just as frequent, careful handwashing is a basic measure for humans to stave off virus transmission, regular large-scale disinfection is imperative to helping keep establishments where people shop, eat and work as protected as possible.
