Coronavirus Cleaning Products We Use and How They Work
Rock Environmental has teamed up with Tomi Environmental Solutions to be able to provide the best products and services in Albany, NY. We have been professionally trained in using the SteraMist products which use Binary Ionization Technology (BIT). Binary Ionization Technology is a product that is registered with the EPA as a Hospital-HealthCare Disinfectant, Effective Broad-Spectrum Disinfectant.
Using a 2-step process, a solution of 7.8% Hydrogen Peroxide is activated and ionized. This is used with a high concentration of the Reactive Oxygen Species, mostly hydroxyl radicals, which is what kills. These are among the most powerful oxidizing agents in nature, and with the iHP process, bacterial and fungal spores are killed. Additionally, viral cells like Coronavirus are inactivated, which eventually leads to the dysfunction of the cell and it dies.
TOMI’s Plasma Science technology turns the solution into a mist, which can easily transfer to all surfaces, cracks, and materials in an area. The mist can get into places that other products can't. It is safe for all materials including fabric, wood, metal, and even electronics. The ionized mist dries, so there is no need for wiping anything down which provides a safe, thoroughly decontaminated, and disinfected space.

Coronavirus Prevention & Tips
It may seem like a broken record by now, but there are many things to keep in mind when it comes to Coronavirus and other common viruses like the Flu. Below, you'll find some helpful information as well as prevention tips and tricks!
What are the Symptoms, and Who is at Risk?
Symptoms include a fever (described as a higher than YOUR normal temperature), dry cough and tightness in the chest causing breathing difficulty. Since coronavirus is the type of virus that causes other respiratory illnesses such as pneumonia, the symptoms can be similar. Those who are at risk include anyone who has current respiratory problems.
This can include COPD and chronic bronchitis. Those who are immunocompromised for any type of reason are also at risk for more severe complications. Those on immunosuppressants and those who are receiving chemotherapy are at a higher risk since it would be difficult for the body to fight off the virus. At this point, COVID-19 does not have a preference on who it infects. All ages, all ethnicities!
How it Spreads
Person-to-person is the most common way this virus spreads. Much like other viruses and bacteria, it can be spread through coughs and sneezes. The Coronavirus can also be spread by touching contaminated surfaces. After touching an infected area, the individual may become infected by touching their eyes, nose or mouth.
It has been found this virus spreads easily, and that is since symptoms can take anywhere from 2-14 days to appear. There may be people who have the virus but have not shown any symptoms yet. This type of virus can spread easily through a community.
How to Stop the Spread
The most important thing is to wash your hands!!! Covering coughs and sneezes will also help prevent droplets to be released into the air. Using a tissue, or the crook in your arm also work. Then, of course, wash your hands. Hand Sanitizer that is made up of 60% or more alcohol can also be effective in hand sanitation. Also, avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth if you have not recently washed your hands!
Avoid close contact with large groups of people if you are able. Also, avoid anyone who may be sick, or has any type of illness. Staying away by choice can prevent not only you from getting the virus, but also prevent the further spread.
If you are feeling ill in any type of way, STAY HOME! Due to this virus spreading through communities all over the world, it is best to stay home. If you need to be around people when you are feeling ill, wear a facemask. If you start to experience symptoms, you should first contact your physician. If you do not have one, then you should contact your county or public health department. They will then provide you with directions on what to do.
Wear your mask or other face covering. NY State guidelines and the CDC have recommended for any person out in public areas where social distancing is unable to be maintained should wear a mask. While masks are hard to come by, it is easy enough to make your own at home. You can even use a bandana or scarf, as long as your mouth and nose is covered.
Lastly, keep everything clean. Surfaces you frequently touch, like doorknobs, cell phones, light switches, all of it…keep clean. Using disinfecting wipes in the home will help reduce the chance of virus spread. If in a large facility such as a hospital, contacting a professional cleaning company like Rock Environment will be the best and most efficient way to disinfect and decontaminate.
