BANGOR, Maine (PRWEB) September 02, 2020
Further solidifying its standing as a national leader in a fast-growing industry, Germinator Mobile Sanitizing and Disinfecting is excited to announce the opening of its newest franchise. The company, which has rapidly expanded across the country since February, has opened a location in Maine.
Based in Bangor, the new franchise will provide a 100% safe and non-toxic sanitizing and disinfecting process, utilizing breakthrough technology scientifically proven to help reduce the spread of harmful bacteria and viruses similar to the novel coronavirus. Pete Philbrick will lead operations for Germinator Bangor, which will service neighborhoods throughout Aroostook County, Hancock County, Kennebec County, Knox County, Penobscot County, Piscataquis County, Somerset County, Waldo County and Washington County.
Born and raised in Bangor, Philbrick has always been passionate about serving the people of Maine. After receiving his bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Maine, he worked in telecommunications and owned an Internet company for many years before beginning his career in the franchise industry. He worked in franchise development and eventually became a Certified Franchise Executive (CFE).
“Health and safety have always been priorities for me and my family, as my wife works at the hospital in Bangor and our two children are enrolled in the public-school system,” said Pete Philbrick. “Owning a Germinator franchise was a natural transition for us and gives us the ability to ensure that homes and businesses are properly sanitized and disinfected. We are proud to do our part in helping to reduce the threat of germs, bacteria and viruses, while simultaneously helping to keep Maine's economy and tourism moving ahead. Our goal is to create a safe and more comfortable environment for visitors and the people of Maine.”
Headquartered in Atlanta, Germinator was founded by Jeff Gill in 2015 with the vision of providing a safe, effective and non-toxic method of proper sanitizing and disinfecting for businesses and households. Since its foundation, the company has serviced homes, schools, childcare centers, restaurants, places of worship, office buildings, and more.
“Pete is a great addition to the Germinator team and has many years of valuable franchise experience, which makes him the perfect choice for our launch into Maine,” said Jeff Gill, CEO of Germinator. We are putting a focus on ramping up our expansion in the Northeastern United States as businesses continue to move along with reopening amid the pandemic. In addition to Maine, we’ve recently opened locations in Rhode Island and Pennsylvania with more coming soon.”
Germinator utilizes a two-step process to sanitize and disinfect surfaces as well as provide long-lasting protection against odor-causing bacteria, bacteria which cause stains and discoloration and fungi such as mold and mildew, and algae. The first step - Genesis - harnesses the power of hypochlorous acid (HOCl) to destroy bacteria, mold, mildew, viruses and odors caused by bacteria. HOCI is a non-toxic, near-neutral pH, hospital-grade sanitizer and disinfectant. The second step applies the Germinator's Shield - an invisible microbial coating that protects surfaces for an extended period of time against the growth of mold, mildew and odor-causing bacteria. Both products are EPA registered and safe for humans, pets and the environment. The company’s highly trained field specialists employ best practices using electrostatic sprayers and wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) as appropriate.
Upholding the highest standards of sanitizing and disinfecting, Germinator makes claims that are scientifically supported and within EPA regulations. In an effort to research and further validate its practice of sanitizing and disinfecting surfaces, the company recently created 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.
"During these unprecedented times, the need to focus on sterilizing agents within our country's airports, public spaces and offices in order to 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."
The company continues to expand across the country, providing communities with a proactive solution to help free environments from harmful germs, bacteria, and viruses. With Germinator, society can now have peace of mind and the freedom to live or work in a sanitized and disinfected environment.
