Mark Iarusso is a planner.
So in the Spring of 2020 when news about COVID-19 started filtering in from all corners of the world, the owner of Superior Environmental & Mechanical Services didn’t waste any time looking for a safe cleaning solution he could bring to Sault Ste. Marie to help local businesses.
Iarusso began researching which products vetted by Health Canada were most effective at killing COIVD-19 on surfaces along with the best ways to apply these products for maximum results.
The solution he found is Vital Oxide, a hospital-grade disinfectant that can be sprayed on any surface and kills 99.999 per cent of deadly bacteria and viruses in minutes.
“Vital Oxide was a clear choice for me,” says Iarusso. “The product is registered by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF). It’s hypo-allergenic, biodegradable, fragrance-free and non-toxic.”
“And with no health, flammability or physical hazards, Vital Oxide received one of the safest classifications possible.”
Iarusso uses a ULV Cold Fogger – a piece of equipment he says looks like is straight out of a Ghostbusters movie - to apply the product for his clients. This method, he says, is superior to wiping and spraying down surface area.
“Fogging technology allows us to maximize the surface area we’re coating and efficiently distribute the product. Our product in an aerosolized form clings to desks, walls and high-touch surfaces, wiping out any pathogen in the entire room.”
For businesses deemed to be essential, cleaning is both preventative and imperative. Essential businesses have a responsibility to continue to take the necessary steps to keep employees and clients safe. “To date, we have worked with our local clients to target high-traffic areas to prevent the spread of bacteria and viruses,” says Iarusso. “We also use this product in HVAC ducts for antimicrobial control and air quality control.”
Disinfecting is an important part of a broader plan to prevent the spread of infectious diseases and viruses like COVID-19. “We are all facing this challenge together,” says Iarusso. “Our goal is to protect our business partners and community members and stop the spread of this virus using whatever tools we can.”
