Updated: Oct 31, 2019

Getting Rid of Bugs in Commercial and Industrial Locations

Factories, warehouses, gas stations, grocery stores, hospitals, hotels, office complexes, in fact, business locations in general, are all vulnerable to pest infestation. And most of the time it’s not due to hygiene or sanitary problems: even the cleanest commercial building can harbor pests of one kind or another ̶ fleas, ticks, bed bugs, dust mites, mice, rats,

and so on. The same could be said for nuisances such as mold and mildew.

However, there is a solution (literally): Sterifab®. Not only is it an extremely effective at getting rid of bed bugs, lice, ticks, fleas and a host of other insects, Sterifab can also be used almost anywhere - and it's EPA approved! For decades it’s been the disinfectant/insecticide of choice for a wide variety of institutions, organizations and facilities, including:

  • Office Complexes

  • Factories, Manufacturing Facilities

  • Hospitals, Hospital Emergency Rooms, Ambulance Corps.

  • Veterinarians, Animal Kennels

  • Hotels, Motels, Guest Houses

  • Retirement Homes

  • Bus Lines

  • Police Departments, Jails, Prisons, Detention Facilities.

How to Use Sterifab

Here are some of the many ways to use Sterifab:

As you know, some brands are designed to kill diverse sorts of microorganisms, while others may be designed to eradicate a smaller assortment of microorganisms. However, for decades Sterifab has been the disinfectant of choice of choice for a wide variety of institutions, organizations and facilities.

Sterifab is specifically designed to:

  • Destroy micro-organisms

  • Kill fungus, germs, and viruses

  • Kill mold and mildew

  • Destroys pathogenic odors

Plus, Sterifab not only reduces the level of micro-organisms from a variety of sites, but also functions as a bacteriostatic (inhibiting bacterial growth) and as a highly effective fungistatic, preventing otherwise hard-to-control fungal growth

Using Sterifab as an Insecticide

Sterifab is an extremely powerful agent for eliminating bed bugs, lice, ticks, fleas and a host of other insects, and, it can used effectively on everything - except people, animals and cooking utensils.

Sterifab is:

  • Easy to use and will not stain

  • Without added perfume or unpleasant odor

  • Fast drying and completely clear

  • Not harmful to fabrics or carpets

  • Labeled for use on mattresses and upholstered furniture

Not only can Sterifab be used to treat virtually any inanimate object or location, there are no other products registered with the U.S EPA that can make these claims.

Hurricanes, fires, tornadoes, flash floods, tropical storms, overflowing rivers, seem to be almost daily occurrences. Whether it’s damage from water or fire one things is certain: when the waters finally recede or the fires are extinguished, hospitals, homes, offices, factories and shops are ruined, and usually covered in mud, sludge, sewage or charred and blackened with soot and other fire detritus. When it comes time to start the restoration process, there are many reasons that Sterifab is the best disinfectant and sanitizer to use.

Sterifab works in many ways and it:

  • Deodorizes and controls odor causing organisms

  • Sanitizes during any smoke, water, sewage backup restoration

  • Is completely non-residual and biodegradable

  • Dries in 15-20 minutes, is biodegradable, and leaves no residue

Using Sterifab to Get Rid of Rodents

Assuming that you’ve identified the source and type of your rodent infestation ̶ rats, mice, squirrels, perhaps even chipmunks ̶ and the professional pest control company you called have done their job properly, the job’s not over. Microorganisms will remain, however efficiently and effectively the rodent presence has been eliminated.

That’s why you ̶ or your exterminator ̶ should make liberal use of Sterifab during the cleanup. It’s an antimicrobial agent that will instantly kill any microorganisms that are present, especially resistant bacterial spores. But, unlike antibiotics, which are designed to destroy microorganisms within the body, Sterifab works by destroying the microbes at the cellular level or hindering their basic metabolic functions.
