The hospitality industry has been one of the most affected by COVID-19. Hotels all over the country have found themselves at the brink of collapse because of the drastic decline of guests and the other ensuing financial challenges that the pandemic has forced upon them. It takes lots of care and attention to maintain a hygienic environment in a hotel, and the current circumstances only make the task all the more daunting and time-consuming.
As more people start making their way back to hotels, owners have to juggle the process of implementing new safety guidelines while keeping tabs on the constant traffic of different guests. Just cleaning after all the high-touch areas in a single hotel room takes lots of work if you don't have the correct tools at hand.
Hotel owners know that they can't trust any less than the best hospitality cleaning products if they want to maintain their businesses without neglecting their visitors' peace of mind, and this is what GenEon aims to provide with its revolutionary sanitizing and disinfecting technology.
Chemical Cleaners and their Risks for Hotel Cleaning Staff
Housekeeping workers are at constant risk, and the COVID-19 pandemic has only made it harder for those responsible for upkeeping the hygiene standards that most hotels pride themselves on. Housekeeping staff spends hours on end working with chemical cleaning products that can gradually affect their health. Most of these products release harmful fumes that stay in the air long after they're done cleaning. The resulting damage represents the equivalent of smoking 20 cigarettes a day, according to a 20-year long study conducted by the University of Bergen in Norway.
Most of the chemical cleaners produced en masse to fulfill different janitorial duties contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs). VOCs are present in an astounding number of products people use in their daily life, including pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and household products like the cleaners we've just mentioned.
Phosphorous, nitrogen, and ammonia are just some of the most recurring ingredients these products tend to contain within their formulas. According to the American Lung Association, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the World Health Organization (WHO), chemical cleaning products play an active part in the appearance of various health conditions, including asthma, ADHD, allergies, and cancer. With such a bleak picture, is there a better option to fulfill the rigorous demands of the hospitality industry?
What Goes Into GenEon's Disinfecting Solutions
For years, GenEon Technologies has been redefining the meaning of cleaning, degreasing, sanitizing and disinfecting while making spaces safer for the people working and living within. GenEon's On-Site Generating systems produce three solutions:
GenEon's sanitizing and disinfecting solutions are produced through a process known as electrochemical activation (ECA). One of the natural minerals GenEon uses as a catalyst is a salt. Salt is a compound comprised of sodium and chloride. The sodium ions are positively charged, and the chloride ions are negatively charged.
Our On-site Generators (OSG) expose these ions to a low electrical charge, whereby the positive side of the charge electrochemically converts the chloride ion (Cl) to hypochlorous acid (HOCl) (a powerful sanitizer) and the negative side of the charge electrochemically converts the sodium ion (Na) into sodium hydroxide (NaOH) (a cleaning compound found in soaps and detergents). Unlike many other OSG systems, our system is a "Blended Stream System" that uses both versions in the same solution. The hypochlorous solution is represented as a Free Available Chlorine (FAC), which's 80-200 times more powerful than chlorine bleach. Hypochlorous acid (HOCI) is widely known for fighting bacterial, viral, and fungal human pathogens inside the human body, so it comes as no surprise that it also serves as the core of a safer, more effective form of disinfection.
Each of the following products serves as the ideal alternative to improve routine cleaning for large facilities, including hospitality businesses where constant activity is the norm. The InstaFlow can produce 40 gallons of sanitizing solutions, including a heavy-duty cleaning degreaser and a glass cleaner. Meanwhile, GenEon's portable Immerse-A-Clean wand creates your own sanitizer and disinfectant, along with the heavy-duty cleaning degreaser and a glass cleaner. The Trio Rx can produce up to 2 liters or a ½ gallon of EPA registered broad-spectrum disinfectant, adding versatility to your cleaning routine as you create a safe space for your staff and guests.
The Best Ally for Your Hotel's Success
If you work in the hospitality industry, you already know how important it is to guarantee the complete disinfection of all the spaces meant for your guests. Moreover, your ability to ensure the safety of your cleaning staff reflects foresight and proper management skills. The COVID-19 pandemic has shifted people's perception—no matter how clean they look—public spaces have always been high-risk areas where germs, viruses, and bacteria can run rampant, but now people are much more aware of these risks. When it comes to hotel rooms, you can expect your guests to be all the more vigilant before they allow themselves the chance to let down their guards.
GenEon's solutions provide a competitive advantage that helps owners guarantee the safety of their guests in a time when a small hiccup could harm a hotel's reputation. Not only are our products a sustainable alternative to disinfect surfaces safely and efficiently, but they also represent a cost-effective alternative to help you thrive with your current business plan. You won't have to spend extra money on multiple cleaning formulas, and you'll be cutting off the costs entailed in your inventory, storage, and disposal of products.
At GenEon Technologies, our primary goal is to contribute to people's well-being while preserving the natural resources that are currently being wasted during the manufacturing and distribution of traditional chemical cleaning products. In a testament to our disinfecting and sanitizing technology's reliability, GenEon's solutions were applied to protect the patients of 315 nursing homes as part of an initiative started by Georgia's governor in April 2020. All of GenEon's products harness the power of natural minerals to disinfect and sanitize surfaces while remaining completely harmless to the people in the room.
As we come to terms with this new reality, hotel owners all over the country are working to earn people's trust through the implementation of new disinfecting and sanitizing methods. If you want to get ahead in the industry and guarantee a safer environment for your staff and visitors, GenEon's products represent the safest and most affordable way to fulfill that goal.
