NBB heat services are an excellent choice for microbial spot treatments of dorm rooms, restaurants, senior housing, individual offices, retail spaces, and apartments. The treatment can safely and effectively increase temperatures to the level where most viruses are deactivated, and bacteria are killed. Once lethal temperatures are achieved, deactivation begins in as little as 15 minutes.
As an example of this treatment’s effectiveness, we point to one example where a heat company effectively treated for COVID. The New York Police Department recently saw a significant percentage of its force sidelined by Covid-19 and feared the virus could spread via police vehicles. Because chemical surface disinfection has a number of shortcomings and may not sufficiently destroy microbial infestations throughout the interior of a vehicle, the NYPD asked Ford Motor Company for a better way to sanitize patrol vehicles. In response to the request, Ford recently announced a software update which provides the ability to sanitize the interior of its police vehicles with heat.
Ford’s acknowledgement that heat can sanitize the interior of a police cruiser will hopefully help more people around the world accept heat’s efficacy.
Ford promotes the following heat protocol for disinfecting the vehicle interior:
• No personnel are allowed within the vehicle during a treatment cycle.
• The interior of the vehicle is heated to 133°F.
• Temperature is maintained for 15 minutes.
• Cool-down is accomplished with a combination of venting exterior air through the vehicle and air conditioning.
Ford states heating the vehicle interior is better than just cleaning the inside of the car with manually applied disinfectant spray. We whole-heartedly agree! Heat permeates the entire occupant compartment, and the sanitization goes much deeper than only spraying surfaces— especially on carpets, fabric seats, and door panels.
Our experience and independent laboratory research prove germs are killed even in hard to- reach areas and there’s no chance of any places being accidentally overlooked. We know heat can kill bed bugs, lice, and other insects within the passenger compartment. The same heat treatment also reduces offending odors.
Unlike Ford’s solution that only works in their Police Utility vehicles — specialized versions of the Ford Explorer SUV, the NBB Heat Solution heaters will disinfect any vehicle or any interior space from the size of closet to an entire building.
From cars and closets all the way up to office buildings and medical facilities, NBB Heat Solutions has the equipment to allow you to self-treat with heat.
NBB Heat technology is 100% effective for bed bugs, cockroaches, and other insects. As recently advocated by Ford, heat kills microbes, viruses, and bacteria. NBB Heat equipment allows you to self-treat with heat on your schedule and as your needs demand. Our certified training lets you do it right and do it safely the first time. Heat safely kills insects and microbes everywhere they may be found in a single one-day treatment.
