Disinfecting Public Transit

Best Practices in Disinfecting Public Transit Systems

The Size and Scope of Public Transit Systems

When we think of public transit, we immediately think of the vehicles. However, we also need to take into account our facilities: the buses and train stations, ticketing areas, restrooms, waiting areas, restaurants and concession areas, and so on. With so many passengers coming in and out every day, any one of these places can become a hotspot for pathogens. That’s why it’s absolutely essential to have everyone on the same page, pitching in, and moving forward together to ensure the safety of riders and employees. Here are some best practices for disinfecting public transit systems.

Create a Daily Checklist

To tackle such a large area, companies and organizations should perform a detailed walkthrough of every facility and vehicle that receives traffic, either by passenger or employee. Make special note of those areas that are high-touch surfaces. These will include countertops, door handles, railing, seats, restroom fixtures, and more. Be sure that these areas are disinfected several times a day, including at the end of each shift, and that each gets checked off.

All Hands On Deck and On the Same Page

The size of public transit operations means that everyone has to be aware of the goals and doing their part to reach them. Even the best janitorial staffs can only do so much. If everyone is pitching in, this will free them up to handle the bigger and more difficult jobs more efficiently.

Choosing the Right Disinfecting Products

There are hundreds of disinfecting products on the market. How can someone be sure they’re choosing the right one for the job? One resource is the EPA’s List N. Quoted from the EPA’s website, the “EPA expects all products on List N to kill all strains and variants of the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) when used according to label directions.” Bioesque’s Botanical Disinfectant Solution is included on the list and features a 55-second kill time against SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19). It also kills 99.9% of bacteria in two minutes, 99.9% of fungi and molds in three minutes, and 99.9% of viruses in four minutes.

Electrostatic Sprayers for Fast, Efficient Cleaning

Public transportation systems are used by thousands of people daily all across the country. And while the coronavirus pandemic certainly hit this industry hard, the fact remains that people still need to get from point A to point B. Increased cleaning schedules became part of the public transit industry’s response to help curb the spread of pathogens. And initially, it was rough going as companies looked for ways to keep everyone safe while still getting the job done as quickly and efficiently as possible. To do so, many organizations turned to electrostatic sprayers for the application of their disinfectant solutions.

What are Electrostatic Sprayers?

Electrostatic sprayers are machines that actually add a charge to disinfectant solutions. Particles of approved disinfectant solutions receive a positive charge while they’re being sprayed, helping them to quickly and evenly adhere to a large variety of surface types. EPA-run tests of these sprayers found good spray deposition and wrap-around effect when using approved disinfectants according to manufacturers’ directions. That is, the spray quickly and efficiently covered the tested zones and clung to areas that would normally be missed by a conventional sprayer.

Bioesque Botanical Disinfectant Solution

Bioesque’s Botanical Disinfectant Solution is the only ready-to-use botanical disinfectant approved for use in electrostatic sprayers. It’s also on the EPA’s List N and features a 55-second kill-time against SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19). It’s an all-purpose solution capable of cleaning, sanitizing, disinfecting, and deodorizing in one step and kills 99.9% of bacteria in two minutes, 99.9% of mold and fungi in three minutes, and 99.9% of viruses in four minutes.

A Safer Way to Clean

Cleaning chemicals like bleach, chlorine, and ammonia are very effective, but come with an added cost: they’re harsh, toxic, and terrible for the environment. Bioesque Solutions was founded on the principle that there must be a safer way to clean without sacrificing the power of these chemicals. With a formula that is free of bleach and other harsh chemicals, Bioesque’s Botanical Disinfectant Solution is a great choice for hazard-conscious or environmentally sensitive settings.
