American Craftsman Restoration is using the same tools successfully used in Singapore and Thailand to combat the spread of COVID-19 Corona Virus, TOMI SteraMist™
The COVID-19 Corona Virus has changed the way people view the concept of “normal” life in the last few months. Communities are grasping for ways to help their sick as well as make their environments safe during the day to day life. Multiple cleaning and disinfection products are being utilized to combat this highly contagious virus. American Craftsman Restoration is one of the very few companies with the technology capable of a 6 Log kill (meaning 99.9999% of viruses, bacteria, and spores killed) by using TOMI SteraMist™. SteraMist™ Binary Ionization technology has been used around the world to disinfect all sorts of important properties. American Craftsman Restoration is utilizing this technology in the Santa Clarita and Los Angeles area.
In Singapore, never before in the history of the country have all of the mosques been closed. Last month they announced that they would be closing all mosques after 82 people returned from religious gatherings in Malaysia with those thought to have been confirmed of the virus. Two of the group were found positive to have the virus. In need of a serious response, Singapore turned to TOMI SteraMist™ to disinfect the mosques, including Masjid Angullia, one of the country’s oldest mosques.

In Thailand, much like many places in the world, the number of infected people continues to rise. TOMI SteraMist™ has officially acquired registration from the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, China’s CDC. SteraMist™ is now the industry standard for disinfection and decontamination in the region.
Just like in Singapore and Thailand, the highest quality measures must be taken to disinfect and decontaminate the places that we live and work. At American Craftsman Restoration we are bringing this technology to the Santa Clarita and Los Angeles area. The process is minimally invasive and typically will only need an area to be vacated for 1-2 hours after being applied. Depending on demand and urgency, we can often be on site in under 2 hours from the time of the call to serve all disinfection needs.
One of the most important things to understand, that most people don’t, is that Lysol, Clorox, and Isopropyl alcohol products are what’s known as a 3 Log Kill. About 6 years ago we decided to make a major investment in equipment and training for the only 6 Log kill product on the market because we are in the disinfection business and have medical facilities and schools that utilize our services for this. It’s called SteraMist™. It was developed in the early 2000’s by DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) when anthrax filled envelopes started showing up at government agencies. It is a 6 Log kill, which means it kills 99.9999% of viruses, bacteria, and spores. The Lysol and Clorox based products that are being widely used are only a 3 Log kill, which means that they kill most, but not all of the virus, bacteria, and spores that are present. Also, those products leave behind residual chemicals that are not good for humans and typically require additional cleaning to remove them from exposed surfaces. This is one of the reasons why nurses have one of the largest incidences of asthma as a profession. SteraMist™ leaves behind only Oxygen and Water as byproducts. SteraMist™ BIT™ is EPA registered for use as a hospital-healthcare disinfectant and for effective broad-spectrum surface disinfection. This innovative technology was awarded a grant in the Fighting Ebola: A Grand Challenge for Development by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). TOMI™ EPA claims include: SARS-CoV-2 that can cause Coronavirus, Hospital-HealthCare disinfectant, 99.9999% effective against Clostridium difficile spores3, kills 99.99% of Pseudomonas1,3, Staph1,3, Salmonella1,3, MRSA1, h1n1 virus 2, and Norovirus4. SteraMist™ Technology eliminates the colonization of bacteria on treated surfaces and inactivates viral2 cells. SteraMist™ BIT™ is also bleach, chlorine, formaldehyde, peracetic acid, and fragrance-free with no additives. You can “smell the clean” when you re-enter the room.
