Kaivac, a leading manufacturer of professional cleaning equipment designed for use in the restaurant, grocery store, and foodservice industries, announced that its disinfectant, KaiBosh, was deemed effective against SARS-CoV-2, the cause of coronavirus (COVID-19), by the EPA.
The disinfectant is engineered to be used with Kaivac’s No-Touch Cleaning (spray-and-vac) systems as well as with spray bottles, pump-up sprayers, and Kaivac’s Dispense-and-Vac system, used for floor cleaning as well as other cleaning tasks.
According to Matt Morrison, communications manager for Kaivac, KaiBosh is available in both one-gallon jugs as well as in eight-ounce packets, which make the equivalent of four gallons when mixed with water. “Plus, the product is manufactured in the U.S., so there should be no disruptions in product delivery.”
However, Morrison adds that KaiBosh is just one of several products that are all part of a Kaivac “COVID-19 Fighting System” of products, designed to stop the spread of COVID-19.
“This ‘system’ is designed to remove pathogens, contaminants, and soils from floors, counters, and high-touch points found in almost all food service locations.”
Along with the spray-and-vac cleaning systems and the Dispense-and-Vac system, the Kaivac COVID-19 Fighting System includes the following:
SmartTowel. The SmartTowel is a folded microfiber towel that can be folded into eight numbered quadrants. This allows the user to use up to eight fresh surfaces of the cloth, helping to prevent the spread of contamination.
KaiFly. The KaiFly rapid surface cleaning system allows users to apply cleaning solution directly onto a microfiber trowel used to wipe surfaces. A squeegee is then used to remove moisture and pathogens from surfaces. Independent tests report it is 80 times more effective at removing soils than using rags or wipers.
Monitoring Technology. The Kaivac COVID Fighting System also includes ATP rapid monitoring technology. Used before and after cleaning surfaces, these systems scientifically determine the effectiveness of cleaning in about 15 seconds.
“Food service professionals must realize there is no one cleaning product or one cleaning method that will help prevent the spread of COVID,” adds Morrison. “It takes a systems approach to keep foodservice facilities clean, healthy, and operating.”
