Eliminate Odors at the Source with You’re N Control

By Odor Control, Product Information

Bacterial Enzyme Digestion

Disinfectants kill bacteria, but they do not eliminate the organic waste that contributes to malodors. Bacterial enzymes digest solid waste, eliminating a potential source of odors.

Bacterial digestion is the natural process of organic degradation. This process of digestion, when naturally occurring, can result in malodorous and toxic by-products. Bacterial enzymes used in odor control products are usually genetically engineered to digest waste much faster, more completely, and without producing odors.

Organic malodor is caused not only by the process of bacterial digestion, but by digestion that is incomplete. Enzymes break down waste into non-toxic, odorless carbon dioxide and water, and the bacteria have a complete digestion cycle.

Bacteria, which are living single-celled organisms, produce enzymes — proteins which catalyze the break down of organic waste into digestible forms. An enzyme is a chemical knife that cuts large organic food pieces into smaller bite-size pieces for the bacteria to eat. Aire-Master’s You’re N Control is a bio/enzymatic deodorant composed of selective adaptive bacteria cultures that actually attack and break down organic waste.

In Memory of Dan Brach, NW Arkansas Franchisee

By Franchise News, Our Stories

On August 14, 2020, Dan Brach at the age of 55 passed from this life and left a large hole in the hearts of his family, friends, and the Aire-Master franchise system. He is survived by his wife, Brooke Brach, Alexa Brach (daughter), Joe Brach (son), Derrick Burnett (son-in-law), Dora & Walter Brach (parents), Trish Ross (sister), David Brach (brother), and Sawyer & Savannah (grandchildren).

Dan was known as “Mr. Fix-it”. He worked for his father’s appliance business and learned how to fix anything. He has also worked in construction building apartment complexes, had managed a C-store and a Pizza Hut.

It was during the time in construction that a slow economy forced his supervisor to lay off a lot of employees. The supervisor knew Byron Bennett (former Northwest Arkansas franchisee) and helped Dan get a job servicing routes for Byron in 1992. Dan worked for 10 years as an employee and purchased the franchise from Byron in November 2003.

One of Dan’s hobbies was cooking. He was an excellent cook and was always willing to share some great recipes. He loved repairing antique cars, remodeling, and just fixing things. Dan’s favorite quote was, “If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing right!”

Dan served as the Franchise Advisory Council Representative for the South Central Region for several years. He was always ready to share his talents and experience with others. In July, the Brachs reached a new level of sales over the life of their franchise. Dan was the most recent recipient of the 2020 Impact Award. Dan was in his 28th year working in the Aire-Master system.

He will be greatly missed.

COVID-19 and Surface Contamination

By Cleaning And Disinfecting, COVID-19

How long can the virus that causes COVID-19 live on surfaces? Estimates from the WHO ranged from a few hours to a few days. Those estimates were based on previous coronaviruses.

A new study is the first from a federal laboratory testing SARS-CoV-2, the virus causing the current crisis. This study tested the virus lifespan on a variety of different surfaces. For example, “the virus can survive on hard surfaces such as plastic and stainless steel for up to 72 hours and on cardboard for up to 24 hours. However, the virus remained viable on copper for only about four hours.”

The virus seems to survive longer on hard flat surfaces than rough surfaces or cloth. Of course, there are other conditions that affect contamination, such as light, temperature, and humidity. So testing in laboratory conditions suggests the virus can survive on surfaces for 2–3 days. But now we have a new report from the CDC about the cruise ships that had infected passengers. Researchers found the virus on a variety of surfaces 17 days after the ships were vacated.

If you are still in the workplace, be aware that a virus can spread through a building in 2–4 hours. Some of the typically germiest surfaces there are:

  • Sink faucet handles in the break room.
  • Microwave door handles.
  • Computer keyboards.
  • Refrigerator door handles.
  • Water fountain buttons.
  • Your own desk.

Also, be mindful of cross-contamination from dirty mops and cleaning cloths.

If you are at home, some of the germiest places there include:

  • Kitchen sinks
  • Underwear
  • Purses and handbags
  • Wet laundry
  • Keyboards
  • Cell phones
  • Kitchen sponges
  • Bath tubs & shower curtains
  • Vacuum cleaner bags
  • Beds
  • Money
  • Soap (especially bars)

If you are out shopping or running errands, use hand sanitizer or wash your hands after touching the card readers at the checkout, shopping cards, ATMs, door handles, gas pumps, and so forth.

The EPA has a list of registered Disinfectants for Use Against SARS-CoV-2. Aire-Master carries two disinfectants on that list: PortionPac Germicidal Cleaner, and Pro-Con Turquoise 3. Ask your local Aire-Master service provider about cleaning and disinfecting services using these products.
