Barrier Technology Provides New Weapon in MRSA War: Surface Care Products Prevent Growth and Transfer of Bacteria
Date:2/13/2008

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Feb. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- A cleaning products manufacturer may have the answer to the rampant spread of the potentially life-threatening MRSA bacteria that has been plaguing hospitals, nursing homes, health clubs, schools and homes for years.

Unelko's "spray & wipe" Clean & Shield(R) products for the home and Sani-Shield(R) for institutional use are proven to clean surfaces of everyday soil and germs while simultaneously shielding the cleaned surfaces with a newly-patented invisible antimicrobial barrier technology. Bacteria, viruses, mold and mildew will not grow for at least seven days between cleanings. See http://www.unelko.com.

Independent laboratory tests of the effects of these products on MRSA were recently completed by the University of Arizona, under the auspices of internationally renowned microbiologist, Dr. Charles Gerba. These tests confirmed that the use of Clean & Shield or Sani-Shield instantly killed more than 99.9% of MRSA, as well as e-coli, salmonella, noroviruses and the AD14 common cold virus, on surfaces and that the antimicrobial barrier continued to kill the bacteria within hours of being re-deposited.

Most cleaners provide a one-time "kill" or one-time "clean" without any ongoing protection against recontamination. Clean & Shield and Sani-Shield's unique patented formulas, however, make them the first and only surface care products proven to protect surfaces with an invisible antimicrobial barrier on which bacteria, mold and mildew will not grow.

Unelko Corporation's President, Steven Ohlhausen, says, "Since you really can't prevent soiling and germ deposits, shielding surfaces for easier next-time cleaning and protecting them against the cross-contamination of surface-contact germs is the best way to protect your family at home, at work or in public facilities."

Unelko specializes in the preservation, enhancement and preventative cleaning of surfaces in homes, automobiles, public buildings and commercial establishments.
