COVID dropped a bomb on the global economy, affecting businesses of all sizes.
Today, in 2021, businesses and organizations are still feeling the effects of the pandemic. Some of the challenges they face are keeping their doors open while also maintaining and adapting to a new level of cleanliness and hygiene for their employees, clients, and customers.
And recently, our government has revised and approved a COVID-19 workplace guidance document for employers on January 29th, 2021.
Although the guidance has been revised, it's nothing new for businesses and organizations on how they approached routine cleaning and disinfection since May of 2020, when it was first issued.
It's clear to see why so many cleaning and disinfection companies have been able to meet the demand that the pandemic has brought forth when it comes to creating hygienic spaces.
In the past, we've personally seen businesses go above and beyond for their employees, clients, and customers because the number of sanitizing and disinfecting service calls has skyrocketed for Germinator franchise owners. Even the number of Germinator franchises has increased to meet the national demand for our services and products.
The emphasis on securing our workplace environments from the threat of germs, viruses, and bacteria is a call to action coming straight from the top of the chain of command, and naturally, people are looking for extra preventative measures to help protect their businesses, organizations, and homes.
Think about it.
It's only natural that homeowners, businesses with high-traffic or confined spaces, and institutions would want to do their very best in providing cleaner and more hygienic spaces for their employees, patients, clients, students, customers, and just for everyone's sake during these times.
With that being said, we're going to show you how owning a Germinator franchise plays an integral role in protecting communities across the country and how we create Germinator Safe Zones to provide unique, 360 degrees of surface, air, and body protection for the spaces where we work, live, and play.
And for the cherry on top, we'll even highlight some of the awesome work done by our franchise owners to give you a glimpse of what you can accomplish too!
Germinator Safe Zones in Action
When you become a part of the Germinator franchise family, you'll receive all the training and support you need to create livable and touchable Germinator Safe Zones. How?
Well, we'll teach you the best techniques for applying our broad-spectrum sanitizing and disinfecting Genesis solution to kill bacteria and viruses, which is then followed by our Shield solution to help protect surfaces from the growth of mold, mildew, algae, and odor-causing bacteria to combat surface deterioration and discoloration for up to three months.
We'll also show you how we ATP test surfaces for microbial activity to measure their cleanliness levels and this will allow you to get a benchmark of how effective your treatments were, by testing before and after service.
Finally, the way we create Germinator Safe Zones for our clients is by combining our services with our lineup of air purifying and disinfecting units and personal body sanitizing products.
Potential franchisees like you will be able to sell NASA-developed air purifiers and disinfection units. Our mobile air units have an internal UVC light that can oxidize and ionize the air to reduce airborne contaminants and allergens. These units can be placed inside facilities to treat up to 3,000 square feet and we even have pocket-sized air units that can be placed inside vehicles or be worn.
The technology inside these air units has been tested in independent lab studies to reduce and eliminate viruses, bacteria, mold, and fungi on surfaces and in the air. They take in oxygen and humidity to convert those molecules into oxidizers, or hydrogen peroxide, and expel them into the air to disinfect it, and those hydrogen peroxide molecules also land on surrounding surfaces to reduce contaminants too.
Our lineup of sanitizing body products can provide additional daily protection from germs for hours. They're also alcohol-free and infused with aloe vera, leaving your skin feeling soft after use. These body products are formulated with Zetrisil, a unique nano antimicrobial technology that not only kills on contact but also has persistent activity.
The approach of sanitizing and disinfecting the way you traditionally see it done today if you really think about it is kind of outdated. Any company can apply a disinfectant with a sprayer. With Germinator, that's not the case. We provide SMART disinfection solutions. There's an advanced technological component in everything we do and provide to the market. NASA-developed air units, nano antimicrobial body products that last for hours, ATP microbial verification measures, and you know what?
Germinator is disrupting and advancing the disinfection industry because we've connected with SafeAccess, a risk management solution suite, which allows enterprises, educational institutions, and event organizers to easily create and maintain health and safety policies and procedures all with just one software solution.
SafeAccess and its partners provide solutions such as check-ins and contact tracing, PCR and Antigen testing, AI-based cough signature analysis, digital health passports, and more integrations. These new initiatives, when combined with our services and products, are what make Germinator one of the most advanced sanitizing and disinfecting companies out there.
You'll be giving your future clients 360 degrees of germ protection to help protect themselves and the spaces they work, live and play in for essentially 365 days a year.
Your future clients will proudly display their Germinator Safe Zone certificate outside their doors, so those who enter will know that if it's been disinfected by Germinator, then it's in the Safe Zone.
There are so many benefits to being a potential franchise owner that we've listed 7 reasons why you should join this socially conscious business opportunity. We're providing the next-generation of protection for the old and new world of germs, and that's how we create livable touchable Germinator Safe Zones.
Why We Do It
Every day we go into daycares, fire stations, hospitals, office buildings, restaurants, malls, and homes to provide the most advanced disinfecting services and products that the industry can offer. We believe that everyone has a right to a better well-being and to feel safe in the spaces they live, work, and play in. We want people to feel comfortable and, most importantly, protected—no matter where they are.
That's why we're committed to using the most advanced antimicrobial science and technologies to kill germs on surfaces, in the air, and around our bodies. It's the reason why we got into this business in the first place.
We've been in the industry since 2015 and have been perfecting our approach to disinfection ever since with the help of our Scientific Advisory Board. They validate our research and processes. They're responsible for reviewing and advising on product strategies. They also direct and assist with navigating legislative and regulatory issues in our industry.
The board includes industrial hygienists, epidemiologists, medical professionals, including a former United States Assistant Surgeon General who served for five administrations, as well as many respected members of the scientific community.
Our products and services are backed by science, and we're not using watered-down bleach and a pump sprayer like the other "COVID cowboys" out there. We don't just disinfect, no, we leave behind spaces that have been tested, sanitized, disinfected, and shielded to fight against the new world of germs.
With this new arsenal of air and body products and our unrivaled approach to treating surfaces, it's time we focus on the businesses that need your help. We'll show you how they can benefit from having advanced 360 degrees of surface, air, and body protection so they can hang that Germinator Safe Zone certificate outside their doors proudly.
Opportunities Are Everywhere
Technically speaking here, anybody, anything, and anyplace can benefit from Germinator's products and services, but some businesses need Germinator Safe Zones the most. With that being said, we're going to go down a list of places in different industries where germs are widespread.
That's why this franchise opportunity is a call to action to help serve and help protect communities by creating Germinator Safe Zones where people can feel good about entering the areas they work, live and play in, knowing all their bases are covered.
For potential franchisees like you to create the ultimate Safe Zone, we recommend that businesses get their facilities equipped with our mobile air units, stock up on body products and sign up for a Quarterly or Monthly Protection Plan for next-level protection against germs.
We're going to dive into one of the most germiest places that help people build that "beach bod" they've lost since the pandemic started.
Put Confidence Back Into Fitness and Wellness Facilities
Working out at the gym, relaxing at spas, and getting in shape while practicing for the next big game seemed like a dream during the peak of the pandemic. Now that the country has lifted some restrictions, people aren't necessarily comfortable with going back to the gym just yet.
An ongoing national survey conducted by the Morning Consult recently surveyed 2200 adults across all religions, political affiliations, ages, generations, race and ethnicities, educational attainment, and gender about how they felt about going to the gym.
They found that most Americans are still not entirely comfortable with the idea of going back to the gym.
In light of this, it's clear to see why these fitness and wellness centers have had to step up their game in making their spaces a hygienic place to work out or relax in. They're enforcing the wearing of masks, social distancing and they're sanitizing and cleaning more frequently than ever.
Even before the pandemic, gyms and health clubs were known to be hotspots for bacteria and fungi since these environments tend to be hot, sweaty, and humid. There are many nasty infections you can pick up in a gym like MRSA, athlete's foot, ringworm, jock itch, warts, cold, flu, and hepatitis are examples of illnesses or issues someone could face going into these places.
Routine cleaning and sanitizing will always be expected by these types of facilities, but you know what would make spa members, gym-goers, and athletes feel even more confident? If their local facility stepped up their disinfection game to create a Germinator Safe Zone by hiring your potential franchise to provide 360 degrees of advanced protection.
This makes sanitizing and disinfecting these types of facilities a top priority for your future franchise and they would benefit greatly from our air units that purify and disinfect. You could also stock their facilities with hand sanitizing wipes, soaps, surface cleaners, and personal sanitizing body sprays.
These athletic facilities will see their community take notice in caring for their members. And on top of that, gyms, health clubs, and athletic facilities would see a significant reduction in contaminants and pathogens if they were to opt-in for a Monthly or Quarterly Protection Plan for service regularly.
Our Genesis solution will do the heavy lifting by killing the broad-spectrum of germs in their environment. The Shield will help protect those areas and things that often see moisture, sweat and heat to avoid the growth of mold, mildew, fungi, algae, and odor-causing bacteria in places like the showers, cardio equipment, bathrooms, locker rooms, etc. for up to three months.
Give these wellness and athletic facilities the protection they need so clients, staff, and members know that this gym, athletic facility, or health club is now an official Germinator Safe Zone protected by your potential Germinator franchise!
Make Learning Feel Safe Again
Securing a contract to help service and help protect educational institutions with our air and body products would make many parents, teachers, professors, children, and young adults extremely happy, comfortable, and relaxed that the space they're walking into is a Germinator Safe Zone.
Many schools in the United States have been opening and closing throughout the year. It has had parents and teachers feeling frustrated and students feeling conflicted since their education is receiving the worst of it as schools flip-flop the learning environment from being in-person, hybrid, or fully online.
While you have no control over who gets to learn online or in-person, what you can do is help educational institutions add extra preventative measures to their existing cleaning regiment. Sanitizing and disinfecting the spaces inside all learning facilities, whether it's for children or adults, is an essential step in the right direction in reducing pathogens.
Just imagine teaming up with the janitorial staff. They'll be maintaining the general upkeep to keep schools clean as you step in to provide additional sanitization and disinfection services. You could provide schools with air purifying and disinfecting units and stock them with personal sanitizing products to make schools feel safe again since they're a Germinator Safe Zone.
Who knows, you might even be able to treat their fleet of public and private buses and outfit them with our mobile air units and body products! You have a chance to create Safe Zones wherever possible to help protect our schools and vehicles that get students there, and that's what potential franchisees like you should be striving for.
The Hospitality Industry Needs Your Help
The hospitality industry is broad, and underneath its umbrella of sectors is the food and beverage industry, travel and tourism industries, recreation and entertainment industries, and hotel and lodging industries.
In these types of businesses, you'll find people like us, who love to go out and eat at their favorite restaurants, who love to travel and relax at an all-inclusive resort, or those who love to attend concerts or watch a sports game at an arena.
These businesses, large or small, fall under the hospitality industry. Their business model relies on customer satisfaction, leisure, or some form of entertainment, and they need your help—especially the smaller businesses.
Right now, the hospitality industry is open with people dining out, traveling, lodging, and attending venues with some form of restrictions and/or COVID-19 preventative measures in place.
As a potential franchisee, you'll have plentiful opportunities to sell products and offer services for these types of businesses that extend beyond disinfecting against the virus that causes COVID. For example, hotels and restaurants are hotbeds for germs that cause the common cold, flu, rotavirus, norovirus, Salmonella, staph infection, and E. coli.
Not only could you be providing sanitizing and disinfecting services, but imagine supplying hotels, restaurants, campgrounds, event venues, and other places with high foot-traffic or cramped spaces with sanitizing body products that provide hours of protection for guests. You can also provide these businesses with our purifying and disinfecting air units to provide an advanced level of protection that the hospitality industry needs to create a Germinator Safe Zone.
It could be a lucrative opportunity that presents itself everywhere you go, and you'll be enabling people to go back to the things they love so they can reclaim the spaces they love.
Germs Don't Deserve Free Rides
Whether it drives on the road, floats on the sea, or flies in the air, the transportation industry took a hit during the COVID lockdowns with a steep decline in ridership across the board, and the public transportation system faced the worst end of it as well as ride-sharing companies.
A year later, the transportation industry is slowly bouncing back with restrictions and COVID guidelines in place. So, where would your prospective Germinator franchise fit in all of this to make travel feel safe again?
A majority of transportation companies, organizations, ride-share businesses, and even the airline industry conduct a cleaning and disinfecting checklist for their records. This is where your potential franchise can come into play.
Here's a quick example for trains or buses. You could be spraying all the major touchpoints—treating doors, handrails, seats and their headrests, the bathrooms inside trains or large buses, floors, windows, and basically treat the entire space from top to bottom, so administrators can check it off their list.
But that's not all. Using the same example, you'll have an opportunity to treat bus or train stations, their waiting rooms, ticketing areas, fast-food outlets, gift shops, convenience stores, elevators, restrooms, turnstiles, etc.
Any type of transportation vehicle or vessel and any kind of transportation facility can become a hotspot for COVID or a breeding ground for other nasty germs. It doesn't matter if you'll be sanitizing and disinfecting Grand Central Station or a small-town bus station and their fleet of buses. Conducting a cleaning and disinfection checklist in this industry has become an addition to the "new normal" standard operating procedure.
Becoming a franchisee is an opportunity to help the transportation industry out so germs won't get a free ride. You could potentially become a business partner with a transportation company and be a part of their routine sanitizing and disinfecting protocols and sell our air and body products to make transportation facilities and vehicles be in a Germinator made Safe Zone.
Also, for taxis and ride-sharing companies such as Lyft and Uber, you could promote your services to drivers and educate them on the effectiveness of our solutions and our Shield's duration. You can also suggest that they carry our personal sanitizing body products and have one of our compact mobile air purifiers in their vehicles for full-circle protection.
So as they take passengers from point A to B, they'll experience fresh air as they breathe in and feel peace of mind knowing contaminants are being reduced on the go in a Safe Zone made by you.
Be an Ally to Frontline Healthcare Workers
Hospitals, private doctors' offices, urgent care clinics, long-term care facilities, and ambulatory surgery care centers could use your help in having a fortified Safe Zone with advanced 360 degrees of protection made possible by your potential franchise.
The reason being is, healthcare facilities of all types have to have higher standards of cleanliness, but sometimes, the areas that are often overlooked are the spaces where doctors aren't actively treating patients.
Patient care and waiting areas have surfaces that are considered high-touch. Light switches, bed rails, overbed tables, and even clipboards and charts are surfaces that are often overlooked by the janitorial staff, which is why they could use a little extra help with your sanitizing and disinfecting services and products.
You have the potential opportunity to disinfect and help protect patient areas and breakrooms that can become breeding grounds for germs because of the frequent foot-traffic and touching of commonly shared surfaces and objects. Sanitizing and disinfecting items such as microwaves, coffee pots, refrigerators, tables, chairs, and even the locker rooms are areas you should be focusing on if you're providing services.
You could even sanitize and disinfect the items that keep a healthcare facility running efficiently. For example, pneumatic tube systems that allow staff to send over lab samples, paperwork, and medication throughout the hospital could harbor pathogens if someone handled the carrier tubes with dirty hands, but if you had treated it with our solutions, these items and devices would harbor fewer to no germs at all.
Lastly, one of the many overlooked items that could use your help with our products and services is the medication dispensing machines. These machines are restocked and touched hundreds of times throughout the day, and all it takes is a few people with dirty hands to continue the spread of germs among staff and patients.
Healthcare professionals try to keep their work environment as disinfected or sterile as possible while tending to a patient's needs, which means you'll have an opportunity to join forces with the janitorial staff and go a step further in providing advanced sanitization and disinfection services, air disinfection and purifying units and stocking healthcare facilities with plentiful amounts of our personal sanitizing products. You'll be leaving behind a Germinator Safe Zone that's been tested, sanitized, disinfected, and shielded to fight against the new world of germs for our healthcare facilities.
Healthcare facilities of all sizes and types would benefit from your franchise as we move on and wrap up this post with the miscellaneous places that could use a Germinator Safe Zone.
Spread Peace of Mind Anywhere
Think about the places that people frequent the most or where people may come in close contact with another.
For example, you could be providing added protection with our products and services to create Germinator Safe Zones for places like barbershops and salons who need to provide their clientele that extra peace of mind. You could also be helping malls and the retail stores in them, influencing other stores in the mall to follow suit.
Places of worship, for example, would be happy to know that you could help their congregation worship in peace. They won't have to worry about the threat of germs after you've treated it and you've offered the full 360-degree suite of air and body products to create Safe Zones by your Germinator franchise.
The list of places you could be helping could go on, but for sure, you'll be providing your community a service that they could stand by, feel good about and you'll feel good knowing that you've made a difference and enhanced their environment to be a well-protected one.
This brings us to our final segment, where we will show potential franchisees such as yourself the work our current franchisees have done to help secure the spaces of others.
Franchisees in the Spotlight
Want to know what a typical day looks like as a franchisee and seeing the satisfaction of your clients' faces, knowing you made a dramatic difference in their spaces?
Let's take a look at some of our current franchisees and the work they've done in the past to help their community feel safer while helping to protect their homes and businesses from unwanted odors and germs.
Germinator Miami (Robert doesn't own miami so we'll switch it to a phoenix franchise and mention that it's owned by greg cook and RLB: This franchise is operated by Robert Blankenship in Miami, Florida, and this particular job takes place at Alden Properties, a commercial real estate management company. They wanted to protect their office spaces as COVID cases continued to rise in the city. They had an outbreak occur at the time, so they definitely wanted that peace of mind by choosing Germinator's four-step sanitizing and disinfecting service.
You'll see in the video above, one of his technicians testing the surfaces in their lobby area, offices, restrooms, and even the elevators for microbial activity. Make sure to not skip ahead on that elevator scene because the results will shock you!
That elevator's surfaces and buttons scored a 1390, which is an astronomically high level of microbial activity, and after it was treated, the elevator scored a 10.
Now that's a surface so clean, you could eat off of it!
They were so happy seeing the before and after results that they asked Germinator Miami to go back six times after that. On to the next one!
Germinator Texas by J Ferg Pros: J Ferg Pros began as a roofing company in 2006. Since then, they have extended their catalog of services to include: plumbing, custom home building, commercial construction, equipment rentals, and in March 2020, they purchased two Germinator franchises in Texas, one in Amarillo and the other in Lubbock, and they have a territory where they serve an area of New Mexico. Their mission is to make a positive difference for every customer they meet, and the work they've done with their Germinator franchises reflects just that.
In the video above, you'll see how large-scale some of these sanitizing and disinfecting jobs can get, and with a determined spirit, you could potentially land a large-scale job such as this one.
Their Germinator Amarillo franchise was called in to help test, disinfect and protect the Hodgetown Stadium, which is home to the Amarillo Sod Poodles baseball team. The Director of Corporate Sponsorship, Tony Ensor, spoke with JR Ferguson to have his team come in and treat the entire facility and go above and beyond the CDC guidelines to make the fans in the stands feel safe again.
The video will tug on your heartstrings because now they'll be able to host their games again with confidence, knowing it was treated by the pros at J Ferg while instilling peace of mind to the Amarillo community. Let's head to the northern region of the country to a city in Pennsylvania.
Germinator Pittsburgh: Born and raised in the Pittsburgh area, Tara Levere owns and operates Germinator Pittsburgh and strongly believes in bringing the most scientifically and technologically advanced solutions to her community.
Hygiene is extremely important to her, and she wanted to bring that sense of urgency to her local community because our services have created a fresher and more comfortable space for her family.
Well, she provided that same sense of hygienic urgency to an educational learning center (K-12 students) that helps young people prepare for the real world at the Junior Achievements of Western Pennsylvania (JA BizTown).
Maura Teti, the Director of Education, wanted to provide a cleaner and more hygienic space for her volunteers, kids, parents, and staff to reopen JA BizTown by the end of the fall. So Tara sent her team of professionals in to sanitize, disinfect and help protect the learning center, which allowed the center to meet its goals of opening in the fall.
Teti had such a great connection and experience hiring the team at Germinator Pittsburgh. She even agreed to a five-year contract for Tara's team to provide sanitizing and disinfecting services regularly to relieve the minds of parents, staff, and young folks who attend JA BizTown to show that they are taking hygiene seriously.
These three examples showcase how you could be a proactive solution in helping others protect their spaces in your community. The reward of helping a home or business be sanitized and disinfected in all aspects whether it be surface, air or body extends beyond the financial gain, and it shows that you're socially conscious of helping others by establishing Germinator Safe Zones during a time of uncertainty.
