Each year on April 22, we celebrate Earth Day in an effort to learn about and remember the importance of protecting health and the environment. While many associate this celebration with outdoor environmental factors like climate change, water pollution and waste management, it’s just as important to understand how to maintain a healthy indoor environment in an effort to maintain high quality public health.
The quality of indoor environments not only affects well-being and productivity, but also minimizes risks for diseases and illnesses caused by indoor air pollutants, surface contamination with toxins and microbes, and close contact among people in public spaces.
DPM Surface Care is committed to supporting our clients in their efforts to promote a healthy indoor environment for their employees and visitors to their facilities. Our environmental health services offer methods for maintaining clean air and surfaces without negative impacts on people or surroundings.
SaniShell Surface Protection System
Keep your facility clean and people healthy with our innovative technology that not only kills germs, but prevents them from coming back.
Our patented SaniShell Surface Protection System offers broad-spectrum antimicrobial surface cleaning, while also adding a protective antimicrobial film that continues to kill harmful viruses, bacteria, mold, mildew and other microbes long after it has been applied.
The SaniShell System uses patented technology to eliminate 99.9999% of all microbes on both hard and porous surfaces (which is the highest level of disinfectant available). Plus, testing by an EPA-approved lab shows that the clear, antimicrobial film continues to kill viruses and germs for up to 90 days on hard surfaces and textiles.
This system can be applied to any interior or exterior surface, giving you broad protection throughout your facility and uses a safe, gentle cleaning solution that’s non-toxic and highly sustainable.
Here’s how it works:
DPM SaniClean™ Treatment
If you’ve had issues with the air quality in your facility, it likely traces back to your carpet (which is actually the largest “air filter” in your building).
According to the EPA, “carpet can act as a ‘sink’ for chemical and biological pollutants including pesticides, dust mites, and fungi.” A sustainable carpet care program is essential to maintaining indoor health.
One cleaning with our Spectrum™ process will neutralize 90% of all allergens, bacteria, and fungi in your environment while significantly improving indoor air quality. Our SaniClean™ process goes one step further, neutralizing 99% of all microbial and organic contaminants in your carpet.
The SaniClean™ process is extremely effective for day-to-day carpet maintenance and keeping your air clean. Specialized testing is performed prior to cleaning to determine specific fungi and bacterial elements present, and a follow-up test ensures those elements have been effectively removed.
Regular carpet cleaning and maintenance is essential to stop microbial growth and mold and mildew formation, and help prevent the spread of germs, contagious viruses, and the flu.

Synexis® BioDefense System
In addition to our in-house technology and processes, DPM Surface Care is an authorized reseller of the Synexis BioDefense System, which goes subatomic deep to fight viruses, bacteria, mold, and more in your facility.
Using their patented technology, Synexis is the sole developer of the process by which naturally occurring oxygen and humidity are taken from the air to create Hydrogen Peroxide Gas (H2O2) or Dry Hydrogen Peroxide (DHP™). DHP™ is designed to safely and effectively break down pathogens—flowing freely and continuously through indoor spaces to reduce the presence of microbes in the air and on surfaces, with no reliance on the exchange of air.
Wherever air goes in an indoor facility, so too will DHP™ to help reduce the presence of viruses, bacteria, mold, odors, and insects. The Synexis system is UL Certified to produce no ozone and works continuously with very little upkeep, no operating staff, and no disruption to anyone’s routine.
“For most of us, we now value our indoor environments much more than we did two years ago,” said Synexis CEO Eric Scholte. “We are proud that our Synexis DHP™ Technology is part of a strategy for many companies, hospitals and schools who are focused on improving their indoor environmental quality, not just air quality.”
“By utilizing DHP™, we help reduce contaminants like mold, bacteria, viruses, including SARS-Cov-2 and the various variants that have followed, in indoor spaces,” he continued. “Additionally, our technology creates a cleaner environment without generating harmful byproducts like ozone and formaldehyde. This is important to understand as not all technology operates this way. In light of Earth Day, we want to ensure people understand how our technology benefits them without damaging the environment.”
Make an effort this Earth Day to support a healthy indoor environment in your facility. We’d love to help you develop a plan for implementing processes for regular maintenance and cleaning of your surfaces, carpet, textiles, and air. Reach out to us today!
