UGL Unicco First to Embrace Ionator EXP Ionized Water Cleaner that Kills H1N1 Virus

UGL Unicco provides cleaning and other facilities services to commercial and industrial companies, as well as schools, colleges and universities, government facilities and public venues. It has long practiced green cleaning techniques and has developed its H1N1 response plan to help customers minimize their employees’, occupants’ and visitors’ exposure to the virus. The Ionator EXP initial deployment will target facilities that are addressing local H1N1 issues.

We’re pleased to be out front on deploying the latest in cleaning technology to our customers’ sites, commented UGL Unicco Vice President of Marketing George Lohnes. Using Ionator EXP is an extremely safe and effective way to neutralize the H1N1 virus.

Beyond the fact that it kills the H1N1 virus in seconds, the ionized water is absolutely safe for our workers and for building occupants; it doesn’t use any toxic chemicals; it’s completely non-allergenic; heavy liquids don’t have to be transported; and plastic containers don’t have to be discarded. It addresses two of our top priorities - cleanliness and sustainability.”

H1N1 Neutralization

The Ionator EXP is a specialized handheld cleaner and sanitizer that uses an ionizing technology to convert tap water into a powerful, non-toxic, dirt-removing and bacteria-killing cleaner. According to Activeion (, independent tests have shown that Ionator EXP kills the 2009 Pandemic H1N1 Influenza A virus in six seconds. Chemical-based sanitizers must remain on the surface (dwell time) for up to ten minutes to eliminate the H1N1 virus.
