Each school year brings the risk of flu and flu-related complications to students, administrative, and teaching staff. Continually evolving strains of Influenza viruses pass easily from person to person in the classroom, locker rooms, bathrooms, offices, cafeterias, and other common areas.
Advice most commonly given to avoid contracting the flu is to minimize personal contact with individuals who suffer from the illness. Washing hands and refraining from sharing tools, toys, utensils, and other items with infected people helps reduce the risk.
Complicating the situation and increasing the threat is the reality that viruses like Swine Influenza A (H1N1), Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV), and Human Coronavirus can survive for days after deposit upon surfaces. Non-porous items such as doorknobs, light switches, plastics, tiles, metal surfaces, and painted furniture are the most common incubators for viruses.
In recent months, many schools throughout the country faced the possibility of closure because of the prevalence of flu infections, both of students and of staff. When the situation becomes dire, school districts seek a product to disinfect and sanitize all areas safely and efficiently. Officials prefer a less drastic intervention than closing a school, but also need a plan to clear away infectious residues while a building remains closed.
Our Bioesque® Disinfectant Solution is the environmentally and socially conscious answer for a school or an entire district suffering from the flu or another viral onslaught. Its plant-based formulation is an efficacious treatment, cleaning the areas completely and nearly eliminating the common viruses involved, killing 99.99% of viruses* in as little as one minute. An EPA Registered Broad-Spectrum Disinfectant, kills bacterial strains, such as staph and strep, that may cause secondary infections as complications of the flu.
Based on Thymox®, our proprietary formulation containing components of thyme oil, each Bioesque® Solutions product delivers results necessary to protect individual and public health. The balance of botanically-derived ingredients and effectiveness makes this innovative solution far better than the harsh chemicals it replaces.

The Bioesque® family of botanical cleaning products efficiently cleans, degreases, deodorizes, and disinfects a broad range of soils and residues, including eliminating bacteria, fungi, and viruses*, without harsh chemicals. The application could not be more straightforward. The choice of treatment methods covers everything from filling a bucket with the appropriate Bioesque® product, using mops, sponges or rags to treat the affected areas, to employing technologically advanced techniques like fogging or electrostatically spraying our plant-based restoration solutions.
An exciting advance in the disinfection and sanitization sphere is the VP300ES Victory Backpack. This broad coverage system is compatible with Bioesque® cleaning and disinfection products, delivering a potent and effective treatment to halt and reverse the contamination of commercial and residential buildings with dozens of bacteria, viruses* and other fungi.
Fast yet thorough application of Bioesque® cleaning and disinfection products is crucial to kill and halt the spread of dozens of bloodborne, airborne, and surface biohazards and pathogens. The Victory Pack employs electrostatic energy that ionizes the Thymol in our solutions to obtain the best cleaning results.
After electrolyzation, contaminated surfaces attract the solution as it is sprayed using the tools aboard the 360 equipment. The unique delivery system ensures complete and thorough coverage of even difficult to reach areas in any structure. Ceilings, recesses, and surfaces with cracks and crevices receive a total treatment with minimal effort. The electrostatic force created by the VP300ES Backpack system defies gravity, essential when vertical surfaces need sustained saturation or coverage with the disinfectant to attain the desired level of viral*, bacterial and other microbial elimination.
In smaller or more contained areas, an application using the chosen Bioesque® product in a spray bottle is also sufficient to destroy targeted pathogens*. The flexibility of application strategies available for our ecologically friendly, botanically-derived products allows for cost-effective and reliable treatments that work even better than the volatile and toxic methods they replace.
