The Halo Disinfection System® Brings Whole Room Disinfection to The Goddard School and Other Top Educational Facilities

NEW CASTLE, DE (September 17, 2019) — Halosil International, Inc., the leader in whole room disinfection and infection control solutions across a broad range of applications, has announced the use of its Halo Disinfection System® in The Goddard School and other leading educational facilities at all levels, ranging from early childhood, to high school, and higher education. According to Global Disinfection Systems, the distribution partner who provides services with the Halo Disinfection System® to The Goddard School and other facilities, the Halo Disinfection System®’s 6-log kill rate provides the level of whole room disinfection necessary to keep students and faculty members safe from dangerous pathogens.

Paired with HaloMist™, Halosil’s non-corrosive, bleach-free dry-fogging solution, The Halo Disinfection System® achieves uniform coverage through any complex space, effectively disinfecting all of the cracks and crevices found in classrooms, including cubbies, desks, shelving, and more. In addition, the system is safe for use in environments frequented by children.

“Since educational facilities experience large amounts of traffic, they can serve as prime breeding grounds for dangerous infections if left unaddressed,” said Geoff Ward, President of Global Disinfection Systems. “By providing facilities like the Goddard School with an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-registered disinfectant, we can ensure these environments are treated with a broad spectrum solution that is proven to kill the widest possible range of dangerous pathogens.”

Bill Straub, owner of a Goddard School location in Bala Cynwyd, PA, echoed Mr. Ward’s sentiments, explaining, “The Halo Disinfection System® was a natural fit for The Goddard School. Since our facilities host groups of young children who are naturally more vulnerable to illness, it is critical for us to protect them from infectious diseases that can be easily spread in the educational environment, such as the flu virus. With the Halo Disinfection System®, we are confident that we are taking the best preventative measures to ensure our students stay safe and can focus on learning.”

In addition to The Goddard School, The Halo Disinfection System® is being used in secondary schools and top colleges and universities around the country to disinfect athletic environments, such as gyms and locker rooms, which have been known to transmit bacteria like Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). The proprietary HaloMist™ formula applies multiple mechanisms of killing action and has no know bacterial resistance, making it the perfect match for highly resistant microorganisms.

“MRSA outbreaks are a major concern in shared athletic facilities, and so we were looking for a disinfection solution that could protect our athletes and students from harm,” said Cathy Liggett-Head, Athletic Trainer for Fairleigh Dickinson University. “When Global Disinfection Systems connected us with the Halo Disinfection System®, we knew we’d found the right solution to eliminate resistant pathogens like MRSA.” Kyle Spotts, Athletic Director of Lehighton High School, further emphasized this sentiment: “The Halo Disinfection System® provides a standard of efficacy beyond that achieved by standard sprays and wipes, which, even when applied by the most diligent user, leave pathogens behind in tough to reach spaces. With the Halo Disinfection System®’s dry fogging delivery, we are able to achieve comprehensive coverage throughout any space while also protecting sensitive electronics and equipment that are used in the athletic environment.”
