ORLANDO, Fla. – The creators of the BioAssured Process and BioAssured Certification have announced a strategic partnership with Orlando-headquartered Massey Services. Massey’s commercial client base includes many of Central Florida’s top hospitality and tourism centered brands, which are now lined up to become BioAssured certified. This client base provides BioAssured with the ability to rapidly scale and deploy their building certification program.
BioAssured was developed by three Orlando entrepreneurs who saw the need for a national “Gold Standard of Clean” across all industries and markets.
Massey Service technicians are trained and certified to apply a two-step electrostatic treatment to all BioAssured buildings. The two-step treatment starts with the application of an EPA registered cleaner and disinfectant, which has demonstrated effectiveness against viruses similar to SARS - CoV2 or human coronavirus. Then a non-leaching durable biostatic finish is applied using nano-technology to bond and protect the surface against microorganisms such as mold, mildew, and bacteria for a minimum of 30 days.
“This unique process provides a significant advantage for our customers by eliminating the cost and disruption with on-going disinfection of surfaces,” said Tony Massey, president of Massey Services.
“All BioAssured buildings will be required to maintain reapplication treatments every 30 days with randomized quality checks and assessments," said Wes Naylor, COO of BioAssured. "Massey’s dedication to excellence made them a clear choice for a partner to offer our proprietary process and our BioAssured Certification.”
“We are delighted to partner with BioAssured on this comprehensive and innovative surface and air decontamination system,” said Tony Massey. “Our goal is to help our customers to open their business with the confidence and assurance that their customers and employees are protected. Our Corporate Headquarters, located in Orlando, Fla., is the first building in the U.S. to earn a BioAssured Certification,” said Massey.
The BioAssured multi-layered process was developed in collaboration with Orlando-based Healthe, the creators of the patented line of Cleanse® Far-UVC products. The process includes scientific assessment of each location with a suite of recommendations that include a 2-step cleaning and disinfection process in combination with the deployment of Far-UVC technology. Far-UVC is the safest way to continuously decrease contamination and sanitize surfaces and air.
BioAssured clients receive expert recommendations for the selection of Healthe Far-UVC products like the Cleanse® Downlight, which is proven to inactivate harmful pathogens with 222-nanometer ultraviolet light that that is safe for people, and the Cleanse® Troffer, which combines HEPA-Carbon activated filtration with UV sanitization.
