Local company provides solution to destroy microbes at athletic facilities

AUSTIN - (August 31, 2016) Any athlete faces illness-causing bacteria and fungi anytime at a training facility, gym, or other location where sweat may spread germs from bodily fluids. A study by the University of California at Irvine School of Medicine showed that staph cultures remained on sports balls 72 hours after the culture was placed on the sports balls. Locker rooms to exercise machines should be sanitized. A local company, GermLogic, has a method used by athletic facilities that destroys microbes, prevents the breeding of superbugs, and protects against 99.99% of common illness-causing pathogens for up to 90 days.

“Even in the cleanest environments, microbes can multiply and reach harmful levels,” Brian DiCicco, owner of GermLogic, said. “Most common household cleaners provide only three minutes of active protection before they dry and the area is contaminated again. This is not a strong defense against superbugs and powerful viruses.”

The expert team at GermLogic uses six unique sanitation and purification options to rid a facility of bacteria, including heat remediation that eliminates MRSA, E. coli, mold, and viruses. While the best prevention is professional sanitation, the public can take a few steps to reduce the risk of catching a staph infection:

  •   Wash your hands for at least 15 seconds and use hand sanitizers when you are not near a sink.
  •   Cover all wounds with dry bandages.
  •   Avoid sharing personal items such as towels or razors.
  •   Shower after exercising.
  •   After exercising, wash all clothing in hot water.

All staph infections and viruses should be treated by physician immediately to prevent the bacteria from spreading further into the body.

GermLogic specializes in using cutting-edge technology to keep environments clean and prevent the spread of germs in schools, athletic facilities, hospitals, and other places of business. The family-owned and veteran-owned company prides itself on providing top-of-the-line services from its team of experts, including being the exclusive holder of the NIDS environmental disinfection certification in Texas.
