During our temporary closure we have had the spa treated with MicroShield360. MicroShield360 is an antimicrobial coating system that is EPA registered and FDA approved in more than 1,000 types of facilities and on over 1,500 surfaces including direct food contact surfaces. ⠀⠀
The MicroShield360 system is a multi-step application process that works to kill then prevent future pathogens from being able to live on the treated surfaces. Once treated the system acts by creating a preventative surface that protects all treated areas from future germs, bacteria, pathogens, and mold.⠀
There are approximately 2,400 bacteria per square inch on common high traffic surfaces. Regular cleaning and disinfection lasts only until the next time the surface is touched or exposed to bacteria and pathogens, however, following the application of MicroShield 360 it works 24/7 to protect our facility.
MicroShield 360 technology imparts durable biostatic activity to surfaces to eliminate bacteria and pathogens. During the application process an electrostatic gun ionizes the solution and applies a charge to the mist, the application forms a covalent bond that crosslinks and polymerizers to itself and the target surface. The positive charge of the solution attracts the pathogen towards the antimicrobial coating which then destroys the pathogen at a molecular level.
Antimicrobial applications such as MicroShield 360 offer a greater level of protection by preventing and continuously inhibiting the growth of microbes on surfaces for very long periods of time. The broad spectrum performance of antimicrobial substances makes them safe and perfect for use throughout our spa.
The coating system is colorless, odorless, hypoallergenic, non-toxic for humans or animals, and one treatment lasts for the whole year!⠀
The MicroShield 360 coating has been applied throughout the spa on all contact surfaces to ensure the safety of our guests and team in preparation for our reopening. We look forward to inviting our guests and our team safely back to the spa soon. Please check our facebook page for details regarding our reopening.
