GenEon's technology reducing school absenteeism
Although the US Environmental Protection Agency has declared that the flu outbreak this year may be one of the worst in recent history with many schools across the nation seeing record absenteeism rates, Paulding schools in Georgia and the Faith Family Academy in Dallas, Texas have documented a significant reduction of more than 10% in absenteeism rates through the use of GenEon's fast response technology.
"As flu season arrives and public concerns over infectious diseases grow, the district has taken proactive measures to ensure that classrooms are safe, clean, and comfortable for students and staff," reports Faith Family Academy.
"In addition to disinfecting school buildings twice a day, the district has purchased a state of the art sanitisation system for all of its buildings. The system, purchased from GenEon Technologies, uses a non-toxic, ultra-fine particle fogger to mist entire rooms and areas of the school. The particles are able to reach places that are unreachable by traditional cleaning methods. The system is effective at killing 99.999% of germs and is safe for students.
"GenEon technologies has documented testing that proves it kills Enterobacter D68, MRSA and other harmful pathogens in a fast and effective manner.
Additionally, the GenEon family of products is cost effective allowing your school to reduce cost while create a safer and healthier environment for your students, staff and facilities team."
GenEon's John Shanahan says that all of GenEon's kill claims are documented by third party testing and supported with concrete proof of their effectiveness, saying that in a recent outbreak of Norovirus at one of the US's most respected universities, GenEon's Smart Solutions provided a 100% reduction from over 190 cases of Norovirus to zero in just 24 hours.
"This university has not seen any return of the virus and the workers in charge of the remediation enjoyed using GenEon's user-friendly solution to control and eliminate this out break," he notes.
"The GenEon Mist is ideal for large open areas and is perfect for fogging and cleaning hard to reach places and the Trio Rx and the Mist are affordable, easy to operate, and can provide powerful results. GenEon Technology delivers a safer, effective alternative to the traditional methods of cleaning and sanitising without the use of harmful chemicals. They provide far more than just comprehensive way to kill germs GenEon's products also assist with mould remediation, odour control and washroom attendance."
