Waukesha, WI and Avon, CT – October 29, 2020 — Surfacide®, the leader in UV-C room decontamination, today announces its partnership with iCleanse, the leader in UV-C personal device decontamination, to combat the spread of COVD-19 in hospitals and healthcare environments and help protect essential healthcare and frontline workers in their workplace environments. Taking a multi-tiered approach to UV decontamination in healthcare and hospital facilities, this partnership will provide chemical-free hospital-grade UV-C technology critical to safeguarding those on the frontline to help combat this pandemic.  

As the category leader in UV-C room decontamination and the world’s first and only patented, multiple-emitter UV-C system to safely reduce harmful bacteria and virus from hospital and patient environments, Surfacide recognizes the importance of adding innovative technologies to address disinfecting personal electronic devices commonly used in healthcare that are traveling from room to room, such as cell phones, tablets, and pagers. iCleanse’s patented technology complements Surfacide by offering a patented UV solution that effectively kills pathogens on personal electronic devices highly contaminated with bacteria and virus.
