SYOSSET, N.Y., Feb. 26, 2021 Yesterday afternoon, ViaClean Technologies, a biotech company that develops, manufactures and markets environmentally responsible antimicrobial formulations that protect surfaces, treated the Syosset Fire Department using its BIOPROTECTUs™ System. The BIOPROTECTUs™ System uses patented, registered technologies: SmartTouch®, a List N disinfectant, to disinfect surfaces against viruses, bacteria, and germs, and BIOPROTECT™ RTU antimicrobial surface protectant, to keep surfaces free of odor- and stain-causing bacteria, fungi (mold and mildew), and algae between cleanings, for up to 90 days (3 months). In joint efforts with Josh Lafazan, the youngest-ever legislator for the 18th District of the Nassau County Legislature and the second youngest-ever legislator for the State of New York, ViaClean continues with its support of essential workers throughout the country by providing local emergency workers with greater peace of mind by treating their workplaces with the BIOPROTECTUs™ System, a combination of SmartTouch List N disinfectant and BIOPROTECT™ antimicrobial protectant formulations.
“ViaClean Technologies is committed to safeguarding our country’s first responders who put our citizens and residents always first. We are proud to be able to include in this initiative the Syosset Fire Department,” said Greg Tipsord, President and Chief Executive Officer of ViaClean Technologies. “We are so humbled by these community heroes who prioritize their residents’ safety every day and have done this selflessly throughout an extremely difficult year. This is our way to show appreciation.”
The treatment of the Syosset Fire Department with BIOPROTECTUs™ System and donation of the branded BIOPROTECT™ hand sanitizer is part of ViaClean’s ongoing initiative to help give back to these community frontline workers by providing treatment of work facilities with these unprecedented products. In 2020, ViaClean Technologies also treated the Lower Gwynedd Township Police Department and City of Madison Fire Department as well as donated its BIOPROTECT™ Hydrating Hand Sanitizer to select Feeding America locations across the country.
“We are so appreciative that ViaClean Technologies offered to treat our station with the BIOPROTECTUs™ System,” said Giovanni Graceffa, 30-year Syosset Fire Department Member. “It gives us great peace of mind to have such an advanced system in place for regular treatment of the departments station, knowing our Firefighters are as safeguarded as the community residents and business owners they serve, especially during this still unsettling time.”
