How to Improve Your Air Quality

After over a year and a half of COVID-19, we’re finally getting a glimpse of the light at the end of the tunnel. While that light may feel distant, more and more people are discussing what the “new normal” looks like and how to best protect those around us as we get back to doing the things we love. Yet, hoping and actually preparing for an end to COVID-19 are very different. At CleanFreak, we believe there’s so much we can do to help keep those we love safe by preventing the spread of germs! Together, we can kill viruses like COVID-19 and do our part to help society safely return to normal life.


Hydrogen Peroxide—The Gentle But Powerful Disinfectant Solution

Part of our effort to keep ourselves and those around us healthy is choosing the right disinfectant to use in our facilities. Whether it’s the flu, COVID-19, or the common cold, virtually every industry is affected by viruses, making proper (and safe) disinfection critical.


Even though we know how important disinfection is in today’s world, many of us aren’t aware that a lot of today’s leading cleaners and disinfectants use harsh, high-risk ingredients to kill germs. This includes some of the most common active ingredients in antimicrobial products, such as:

  • • Sodium Hypochlorite (Bleach)
  • • Quaternary Ammonium Chlorides (Quats)
  • • Peracetic Acids
  • • Fragrances and Dyes


These products may help protect against viruses, but can potentially lead to other long-term health concerns, such as asthma, contact dermatitis, and irritation to the eyes, mouth, mucous membranes, or gastrointestinal system. Because of this, it is more important than ever that you and your janitorial crew are aware of what is in your cleaning products and how to effectively use these products to keep your facility and its common touch points clean.


That’s where hydrogen peroxide comes in! This gentle but powerful ingredient, used in Facility+ by MAXIM, is making waves in the cleaning industry as a safer alternative to potentially harmful cleaning chemicals and harsh odors. With strong oxidizing properties, hydrogen peroxide-based cleaners can effectively kill germs and viruses, including COVID-19, without the long-term risks associated with toxic ingredients like bleach and quats.



Effective Against SARS-CoV-2 In Just 1 Minute

Even better, this two-in-one cleaner and disinfectant helps cleaning crews in all industries disinfect a wide range of surfaces even faster. At a cost-efficient 1:64 dilution (2 oz. of product per gallon of water), Facility+ is EPA-approved to be effective against SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) in 1 minute on most hard, non-porous surfaces. This powerful product is also effective against the Delta strain* and is approved for use in electrostatic sprayers. In just 60 seconds, crews can use this hydrogen peroxide-based product to disinfect a wide range of hard, non-porous surfaces, including:

  • • Walls
  • • Countertops
  • • Toilets
  • • Sinks and Faucets
  • • Door Handles and Light Switches
  • • Appliances
  • • And Many More!

As an added bonus, this one-step cleaner, disinfectant and deodorant reduces the number of steps in your crew’s routine, making protecting your facility that much more simple and efficient! With time at a premium, you can’t afford to waste it on lengthy cleaning processes or complicated training for your crew. If you need to save even more time, Facility+ also comes in a ready-to-use (RTU) formula that doesn’t require mixing; just grab and clean!


Whatever your situation, Facility+ is your solution to fast, safe, and effective cleaning and disinfecting. Choosing the right products for your facility is key to preventing the spread of germs without exposing your team or customers to potentially harmful chemicals.

*Facility+ has demonstrated effectiveness against viruses similar to SARS-CoV-2-Delta strain on hard, nonporous surfaces when applied in accordance with the directions for use against Norovirus. Visit the CDC for additional information at: cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-nCoV/

EPA has confirmed that variants of SARS-CoV-2, such as the Delta strain fall under the active Emerging Viral Pathogen Policy that was triggered for SARS-CoV-2 (Alpha strain) in January 2020. EPA has confirmed the Delta and other strains can be included in allowed off-label marketing for products that meet the EVP Policy requirements. EPA’s preferred convention is “SARS-CoV-2-Delta strain” to reference the variants.
