Western® Pest Services, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Rollins Inc., has announced a new service intended to help businesses quickly kill a large spectrum of pathogens to help stop the spread of viruses.

Any time high-touch surfaces, such as doorknobs, countertops, and seating in public places are not disinfected, it creates the perfect stage for harmful viruses to spread rapidly amongst patrons. Large-scale sanitation for businesses where people are eating, shopping, and working is crucial for keeping these establishments as disinfected as possible. Western PurClean™ is an effective treatment for reducing the risk of such transmissions from occurring.

Western PurClean is labeled for use by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on their “List N” of products that meet the criteria for use against SaRS-CoV-2, the causal agent of COVID-19. When applied properly and at full strength by Western technicians, this disinfectant kills 99.99 percent of bacteria and viruses on hard, nonporous surfaces and sanitizing soft, porous surfaces.

“The product we are using here is proven to be effective against canine and feline coronaviruses, as well as multiple influenza strains, with incredibly low levels of toxicity,” says Shannon Sked, board-certified entomologist for Western Pest Services. “The ability to use something that is proven to disinfect hard surfaces and sanitize soft surfaces with almost no environmental or irritant impact is a great option for businesses wanting to keep safety top of mind.”

In addition to its proven sanitizing and disinfecting strength, PurClean’s ingredients are defined by the EPA as the lowest level of toxicity—Category IV, defined as “practically nontoxic and not an irritant.” It also contains no ozone-harming compounds, so it is safe for the environment, and is rated “no-rinse required on food contact surfaces” by NSF International, so it is safe for use in any establishment.

“This product has been around for years to clean commercial facilities after certain pest management services,” says Sked. “We are thrilled that we can now shift this product to serve the general public in this unprecedented time.”

Western Pest Services is dedicated to keeping your business clean and disinfected. We are committed to providing establishments a tough disinfectant that is a frontline defense in the battle against COVID-19.
