SOLUTIONS FOR HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY
The Hospitality Industry is faced with many difficult issues today. The lack of qualified employees, government regulations, people who can’t afford to travel because plan tickets are too expensive, and food prices that have gone up resulting in declining revenues at hotel restaurants. One issue that is gaining momentum with the traveler is how clean is my room? Not from a stand point of visual cleanliness but from a standpoint of potential environmental threats that might plague the guest and his or her family. Some examples are contaminated drinking glasses, contaminated air, allergens such as dust mites and pet dander, mold spores, and rooms that have been contaminated with MRSA and other deadly bacteria and viruses. The first thought that guests have is, when you sit on the bedspread whose bottom was lying on it before mine? TOMI can offer your guests that peace of mind!
Studies have demonstrated that 53% of all surfaces such as public chairs, couches, and bedspreads are contaminated with fecal matter including bacteria of other stains. Another study showed that never since prehistoric times, has there been such resurgence in bed bug infestations as we currently see today. So how does one hotel chain win back their client’s confidence in a tough market like we have today? Guests are less satisfied today than ever before with the hotel industry. TOMI Environmental Solutions is here to change that.
TOMI can offer your establishment a customized environmentally friendly protocol, to rid your hotel from bed bugs, bad air, asthma triggers, mold, allergens, bacteria, viruses, and odors. TOMI’s time tested products have been used by the military for the elimination of Anthrax and now, TOMI can offer our SteraMist (BIT®) technology commercially to your hotel to rid the hallways, guest rooms, and other public facilities of all allergens and pathogens including odors.
SteraMist (BIT®) is a shoot and spray hydrogen peroxide based technology that activates a 7.5 percent hydrogen peroxide based solution into a ROS (Reactive Oxygen Species), The SteraMist (BIT®) solution is residue free, does not corrode materials, and kills bacteria, mold spores, bed bugs, and viruses on contact. SteraMist (BIT®) is applied by a trained hotel staff member using a “point and shoot” spray technique with minimal personal protective equipment needed. It only takes minutes for those contaminated rooms or seconds for a bed spread, chair or couch, and leaves the surface transient sterilized. So think of the PR and the advertisements, not only are our rooms clean but all the surfaces are sterile!
For your rooms that have an infestation of bed bugs, our protocol is to treat the room thoroughly with SteraMist and follow-up with our EPA approved BED Bug Fix that is harmless to children and pets. The housekeeping department will follow TOMI’s protocol after their daily cleaning, and spray the BBF in the appropriate areas once a week resulting in no more bed bugs.
TOMI also offers our “TERMINATOR” a U.S.A. made stainless steel UVGI (Ultra-Violet Germicidal Irradiation) system that can be retrofitted into your current HVAC system and built into any new HVAC system. UVGI has been proven to reduce air borne pathogens and particulates. As an added benefit, once you install our Terminators you will see a 30-35% reduction in your energy costs, along with lowering your carbon footprint and the electric bill at the same time. By keeping your HVAC coil clean of bio-burdens, you are also reducing the electrical strain and saving energy along with saving on costly frequent coil cleanings.
For those large rooms that have either odors or a mold and mildew issue, TOMI manufactures a UV Ozone Generators in seven different sizes. Ozone is the third most powerful oxidizer known to man, and TOMI’s UV Ozone Generators do not leave any harmful by-products after its run cycle. You never use UV ozone in occupied space, so people and pets must wait an hour until all residual ozone is converted back into oxygen.
TOMI also has a food decontamination mobile surface washer for surface cleaning and disinfection with the strength of ozone, nature’s powerful sanitizer. Ozone is the most powerful oxidizer commercially available and is up to 1.5 times more effective and many times faster acting than chlorine. It is unmatched as a disinfectant and not only does it kill E.coli, it will increase the shelf life of the food. Ozone was approved in 2005 by the FDA for use in the food industry.
