Halosil Partners with Dental Practices to Prevent the Spread of COVID-19
NEW CASTLE, DE (November 9, 2020) —Halosil International, Inc., the leader in whole room disinfection across a broad range of applications and environments, has sold Halo Disinfection Systems® to dental offices across the nation for use against SARS-CoV-2, the pathogen that causes COVID-19. By utilizing the HaloFogger® to uniformly distribute HaloMist™ (EPA Reg. No. 84526-6) across rooms, dental offices are able to more efficiently and effectively eliminate pathogens.
After routine cleaning (e.g. removing visible dirt or debris) is concluded, dental offices can simply turn on the HaloFogger® in touchless mode and allow the machine to run its disinfection cycle until completion. The fogger’s dry-fog delivery allows dental offices to kill pathogens in hard to reach areas throughout the waiting area, patient rooms, and offices.
Neumann Family Dentistry is one of many dental offices satisfied with the ease-of-use and efficacy of the Halo Disinfection System®. “We ran the system for an hour, and then let it sit overnight,” said Jenny Neumann of Neumann Family Dentistry. “When we went in the next morning, we were astounded on the range of the disinfectant… This machine is great and we are so pleased that we invested in it.”
The application of the Halo Disinfection System® in dental settings aligns with the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) statement that routine cleaning and disinfection procedures are appropriate for SARS-CoV-2 in healthcare settings such as dentists’ offices. The CDC directs dental practices to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) List N for EPA-registered disinfectants that qualify under the emerging viral pathogens program for use against SARS-CoV-2.
HaloMist™, Halosil’s proprietary hydrogen peroxide and silver-ion based disinfectant solution, has been included on the EPA List N.
“For years, we’ve been working with healthcare facilities to eliminate pathogens like C. difficile and influenza from environments,” said David St. Clair, Chairman and CFO at Halosil International. “Applying our proven system to dental practices was a natural extension of our ongoing relationship with hospitals, surgical centers, and long term care facilities. We are pleased to bring our hospital-grade disinfectant to dental settings.”
