Encore Data Products Promotes Clean And Healthy Classrooms

Lafayette, Colorado based Encore Data Products is delighted to announce the launch of their new ‘Clean and Healthy Classrooms’ product lines. As the name suggests, these products are designed to help students and teachers keep themselves as well as their classrooms as clean as possible when they return to school. Given the ongoing pandemic, Encore Data Products hopes that their efforts will help keep educational facilities safe for all.

“With many of us being ushered back to school in the coming weeks, we as a company saw a vital need for specialized cleaning products that were designed for use in the classroom,” says Jeff Burgess of Encore Data Products. “Whether your school area requires students and teachers to wear a mask or not, we urge our communities to remember that a clean environment is more often than not the best environment to learn in — and this has rarely been more true than in present times.”

As such, the company quickly began putting together a line of products that they believe will allow educational institutions to maintain their operations while reducing the risk of viral transmission as much as possible. Given that COVID-19 is known to transfer between shared surfaces, such as desks, chairs, door handles, papers, books and more, the ability to swiftly clean such surfaces can make a huge difference.

It is for this reason that the Encore Data Products includes a ‘Make Your Own Sanitizing Wipes 8 Roll Kit’ in their new line of products. This allows users to rapidly produce their own wet disinfecting wipes with the included sanitizing solution in order to clean and disinfect hard non-porous surfaces in one step. This kit provides a one 3.5 gallon bucket, 8 center pull rolls with plastic bags and one 16 oz. bottle of concentrated sanitizer and deodorizer solution. Notably, customers can create wet wipes with any cleaning solution, not just the one that comes included. According to the company, it can be difficult for some to find a pre-moistened disinfecting wipe with the cleaning solution they prefer, so this kit gives them the ability to swiftly make their own.

According to the manufacturer's product description, the included solution, “is an economical all-purpose sanitizer, disinfectant and deodorizer that has demonstrated effectiveness against viruses such as hepatitis b and HIV-1 as well as viruses similar to SARS-CoV-2 virus (COVID-19) on hard, non-porous surfaces.” While this means customers who use this solution can rest assured it is up to the task, the company advises them to take care when using alternatives since they may have been manufactured to different standards. As such, customers should follow the recommended guidelines and kill claims on any other chemicals used to make pre-moistened wipes.

Jeff Burgess adds, "It is virtually impossible to make it through any given day without touching anything with our hands, and studies have shown that we also touch our faces a lot. In practice, this means we might touch a contaminated surface and then put ourselves at risk of infection when we unconsciously scratch our nose or rub our eyes.”

The answer, according to Encore Data Products, may then lie in making sure all shared surfaces are decontaminated as much as possible. Fortunately, the company’s products make this goal more achievable. Products from Encore Data Products make the goal of ensuring all shared surfaces are decontaminated much more achievable. For instance, their customers can use the newly available ‘Stay Well Classroom & Office Sanitizer Kit’ to protect themselves in a school or office environment. This classroom and office sanitizer kit includes a Sanitizer Dispenser with Stand, No-Touch Infrared Thermometer, 50 Masks and 1 Gallon Gel Hand Sanitizer.

The company has several other products in the Clean and Healthy Classrooms line that can help maintain a virus-free environment. More information on these products can be found on their official website, and customers are welcome to reach out to the staff at Encore Data Products for additional details.
