We’re looking forward to the opening of our first Alabama location. Paul is a leader by nature and was the perfect choice to spearhead our launch in this new market. - said Jeff Gill, Founder and CEO of Germinator.

Germinator Mobile Sanitizing and Disinfecting is continuing its rapid expansion across the country, opening its newest location in the Southeastern United States. The company is proud to announce it has opened its doors in Huntsville, Alabama and will offer high-quality sanitizing and disinfecting services to businesses and residents throughout Madison County.

Germinator Huntsville will be owned and operated by Paul Orton. An educator for over 20 years, the current pandemic led him to open a Germinator franchise in order to provide the community with effective sanitizing and disinfecting services. Germinator has developed a patent-pending process that provides a new generation of microbial protection for both commercial and residential establishments.

“On March 13, with coronavirus on the rise, I was cleaning my classroom after school with a can of disinfectant and was immediately struck by its strong, chemical odor,” said Orton. “I wondered to myself whether or not these products were actually safe, and I discovered that some of the ingredients used in disinfectants can contribute to asthma, dermatitis and other health problems. I wanted to provide the community with a better option for sanitizing and disinfecting, which led me to discover Germinator. Germinator’s HOCl sanitizing and disinfecting solution does not use harsh chemicals or fumes.”

Germinator’s patent-pending methodology is the most unique and cost-effective means of providing enhanced antimicrobial protection for businesses and residences. The company first tests surfaces for ATP using a luminometer to detect light that can come from cellular activity. This measurement immediately provides the level of clean on a surface.

The next step is the application of Germinator’s Genesis surface treatment. Genesis is a one-step cleaner and broad-spectrum sanitizer and disinfectant treatment that harnesses the power of hypochlorous acid (HOCl). Derived from naturally occurring minerals, Genesis not only eliminates odors at their source, but kills a wide range of bacteria including Staphylococcus aureus, MRSA, Salmonella enterica and Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and viruses including norovirus, rotavirus and adenovirus on hard, non-porous, environmental surfaces. It meets the Association of Official Agricultural Chemists (AOAC) germicidal spray standards for Hospital Grade Disinfection and is on the EPA’s N List of products determined to meet the criteria for use against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. As a result, this treatment will eliminate bacteria and viruses that may reside in your environment without the use of harsh chemicals or fumes.

Following Genesis, Germinator applies its Shield, a water-based quaternary ammonium compound that imparts a durable bacteriostatic finish. It is EPA-registered as effective against mold, mildew, algae and odor-causing bacteria. This application creates an invisible barrier that combats deterioration and discoloration and promotes freshness for up to three months.

The Genesis and Shield products are applied by using an electrostatic sprayer, which is the most efficient and effective means of delivering the products to the intended application sites. After Germinator’s surface treatment and protectant services, the company retests ATP levels to ensure the surfaces have achieved the intended results.

Germinator was founded by Jeff Gill in 2015 with the vision of providing an effective method of proper sanitizing and disinfecting for businesses and households. The company continues to rapidly expand across the United States.

“We’re looking forward to the opening of our first Alabama location,” said Gill. “Paul is a leader by nature and was the perfect choice to spearhead our launch in this new market. He’s led generations of students for over 20 years throughout Alabama, Texas, Tennessee and even across the globe. Now, he is leading the charge of providing Madison County with an effective method for proper sanitization and disinfection.”

Upholding the highest standards of sanitization and disinfection, Germinator makes claims that are scientifically supported and within EPA regulations. The company’s research and process are validated by the Germinator Scientific Advisory Board. The board is made up of key leaders such as Dr. Roscoe M. Moore, Jr. —who was an Assistant to the United States Surgeon General for five administrations; Dr. Harold Smith, who has extensive expertise in cell biology, molecular biology and biochemistry, along with decades of experience leading sponsored research on infectious diseases for the National Institutes of Health (NIH); Dr. David Miller, the Protocol Chair of University of Rochester Center for AIDS Research Community Advisory Board; and Chad S. Johnson, Esq., a Harvard-trained corporate, legislative, and regulatory attorney with significant experience in advising health and biotechnology companies.

"During these unprecedented times, the need to focus on sterilizing agents within our country's airports, public spaces and offices in order to help decrease the spread of viral pathogens such as coronavirus is essential," states Dr. Moore. "I am extremely happy to be a part of the Germinator team and lend my expertise in public health and regulatory affairs to what I feel is an immense asset to the containment effort."

With Germinator, society can now have greater peace of mind and the freedom to live or work in a sanitized and disinfected environment. Businesses and residents in Alabama can learn more by visiting or calling (256) 272-9000.
