SteraMist: Navigating a Dynamic Disinfection Landscape

One of the most challenging tasks to undertake in every industry is the navigation of seemingly endless disinfection options – many of which seem to have appear over the past two years. However, not all disinfections (or their drawbacks) are ever the same. With multiple solutions currently available on the market, each have their own uncertainties when it comes to effectiveness, turnover time, surface damage, and lingering toxic residues. SteraMist was designed to simplify that choice by delivering on every front without compromise.

SteraMist provides dozens of advantages over other disinfectants, chemicals, and cleaning methods. As a no-touch mechanical solution that quickly disinfects all areas, SteraMist’s portability is placed at the forefront to make contact-free maneuverability a key priority when treating cabins, restrooms, and even cockpits that play host to priceless navigation systems and critical electronic systems that can’t afford to be damaged by traditional disinfection cleaners. All of this is made possible through the use of natural science – the very same process allowing the earth to naturally cleanse and purify rivers, forests, and air. SteraMist is the only disinfection on the market that produces this patented technology, ionized Hydrogen Peroxide (iHP). The iHP technology delivers powerful, gentle disinfection that neutralizes viruses, kills bacteria and bacteria spores, and fungi and mold spores within seconds.

A Worldwide Disinfection Solution

Recently, infection control has received a brighter spotlight than ever before, with many understanding it more as a critical investment than a frivolous luxury. Even as COVID continues to recede, travelers are still wary about other lingering infection risks and other existing illnesses, such as the common cold (soon to become common again). More than that, past threats have also emerged with alarming frequency, such as SARS, Swine Flu, Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), Ebola, and Zika. Unlike the endless untested and unregulated “fad” disinfections, SteraMist is proud to have an illustrious history of responding to pandemics. USAID (US Agency for International Development) deployed SteraMist to respond to an outbreak of Ebola in an African region. SteraMist also deployed to a Saudi Arabian hospital to combat an outbreak of Middle East Reparatory Syndrome (MERS-CoV), and still stands on the front lines of pandemic response having equipped communities globally with a premium disinfection to fight coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) and whatever threat comes next (Disease X). With a presence in well over 40 countries worldwide, SteraMist disinfection has been made a dependable standard in prestigious companies and countless industries (e.g., life sciences, aviation, maritime, education, healthcare).

SteraMist Technology & The History Behind It

Despite how common the practice is, wiping down surfaces isn’t the quickest or most effective way to disinfect aircraft surfaces. On top of missed areas that pose a hidden threat down the line, there are massive risks of cross-contamination. Other common solutions, such as UV systems and electrostatic sprayers (ESS), may look attractive and easy-to-use, that convenience comes at a massive cost (often literally). Missed shadows and valuable time consumption can place any aircraft at risk of financial loss. When it comes to value, SteraMist stands out.

ionized Hydrogen Peroxide technology (iHP) is a uniquely patented technology that simulates nature, passing low-percentage (7.8%) hydrogen peroxide through cold plasma to create one of the most powerful oxidizing agents – hydroxyl radicals. This agent disrupts cellular structures and kills dangerous microbial organisms on contact with a residue-free, non-toxic, non-corrosive, and non-hazardous disinfection. Every SteraMist system features iHP technology.

SteraMist iHP technology was originally developed by the US Defense Research Projects Agency (DARPA) as a method to counter weaponized anthrax spores in response to the 9/11 attacks. Rigorous testing was successfully completed to prove its efficacy against biological and chemical warfare agents to help protect the nation from future attacks.

After thoroughly conducting additional testing, SteraMist iHP technology was found to not only eradicate Anthrax and other warfare agents but has incredibly high efficacy against numerous other viral and bacterial spores, with SteraMist officially receiving the first-ever EPA registration as a system and equipment combination for broad-spectrum hospital-healthcare disinfection.

Disinfection Designed Around Your Itinerary

As the travel industry continues to navigate a waning pandemic, existing microorganisms, and unforeseen future threats, new cleaning protocols are being quickly implemented with strict procedures. Companies looking for quick disinfection are likely tempted to settle for the cheapest solution available – a choice that could result in far more financial damage and safety risks than they expect. SteraMist is proudly dedicated to making that choice easy with a solution that saves you time and avoids critical damage far into the future, all in a premium, tested package to make your flights smoother than ever before.
