Max-Defense Antimicrobial Service

If you are concerned about potentially harmful microbes – our best solution is our Max-Defense Antimicrobial Treatment.  

Our Max-Defense Antimicrobial Service is a very meticulous and thorough – four step process of cleaning, disinfecting, coating and testing touch points .  It’s the most proactive and precautionary service we offer dealing with microbes.  Here is our unique and effective four step process:

1. Clean – We thoroughly clean the surface with an EPA registered cleaner/disinfectant (door knobs, counters, sinks, desks, etc…)

2. Kill  – We apply another EPA registered disinfectant that meets the CDC guidelines to kill human coronavirus.  The chemical is capable of killing 99.9% viruses and bacteria. The list is of EPA kill claims is extensive.  

3. Coat We have a unique, durable and effective EPA Registered Antimicrobial treatment that can inhibit the growth of bacteria, mold and fungi on many surfaces for weeks after initial application.  The Silane base of the coating makes it bind to surfaces and hard to remove.  We recommend 30 or 90 day scheduled treatments depending on the surfaces and environments.  Our coating is approved for use indoors on many surfaces types including most hard and soft surfaces.  

Our antimicrobial coating provides a biostatic (that’s a fancy word that means inhibits the growth of certain micro-organisms) shield-like protective coating that wages warfare against offending bacteria, mold and fungi.  The coating can be removed by friction and/or use of high PH cleaners such as bleach, alcohol based cleaner and/or stripping agents.   Also, please note our coating inhibits the growth of bacteria, molds, and fungi but does not have a kill or inhibition claim against viruses at this time.  Reduction of specific organisms depends on the amount of bio load, temperature and humidity.   Application of the coating works in conjunction with good housekeeping practices, the surfaces still need to be cleaned and disinfected on a routine basis in order for the coating work effectively.  The coating is odorless and clear when applied.  It can be applied with a Electrostatic Sprayer, ULV cold fogger, or other spraying methods. 

The coating used in our system has been used on numerous schools, professional sports teams, industrial facilities and more. Our very first  contract was a major military school’s  combat training facility.   We have been trained and authorized as a service provider to perform this service.  We have been doing our Max-Defense Antimicrobial Treatments in the Chattanooga area since 2011.  We are the exclusive Max-Defense Authorized Service Provider in TN and GA.  

4. Test: We can even provide “pre and post” treatment swabbing for ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate).  ATP is the energy source for bacteria by swabbing for ATP you get a measurable level of ATP which is in bacteria (dead or alive on the surface).  Many hospitals and food service companies use ATP meters to measure the cleanliness of surfaces.

Please note, we cannot make any health claims that our service will reduce and/or prevent sickness – that would be a health claim which is beyond the scope of the EPA registrations of the products that we use. 

With that said, we feel that this is a very proactive and precautionary measure to make sure your facilities surfaces are well protected against microbes.  It’s the most robust service we offer to combat microorganisms.

Upon completion of each service – clients receive a post treatment report detailing and certifying that all four steps were completed satisfactorily.  Along with that you will receive a professional Certificate of Treatment with the service date.
