Why Offering Shoe Disinfection Helps Reduce The Spread of Germs


St. Pete, FL, July 21, 2022 — In an age of antimicrobial-resistant bacteria, pandemics, and food recalls due to cross-contamination, sanitization is more important than ever. Hand sanitizer is everywhere, but many people do not realize how important it is to disinfect shoes.

PathO3Gen Solutions’ sole mission is to create cleaner, safer environments by developing technology to prevent the transmission of disease-causing microbes.

Every time we touch a surface, we are transferring germs. While gloves, masks, and surface cleaning do a great job containing those microbes, every pair of shoes carries, on average, 800,000 units of bacteria. Studies show germs from shoes and floors quickly move to surrounding high-touch surfaces.

“Depending on the particular organism, germs can last for days or even weeks on these surfaces,” said Daniel Gil, an original inventor of PathO3Gen Solutions’ shoe sanitizing technology.

Unlike hands, shoes are not easy to wash. Their uneven surfaces and grooves make it difficult to get your shoes completely clean.

However, with PathO3Gen Solutions’ UVZone® Shoe Sanitizing Station, disinfecting shoes is easy. When bacteria or viruses are exposed to UVZone’s combination of UVC light and ozone, up to 99.999% are destroyed in just 8 seconds, making PathO3Gen Solutions’ multi-patented technology uniquely effective.

UVC light breaks open the microbe while ozone eliminates the DNA inside, making it unable to replicate and spread further. The duo destroys the germs without damaging your shoes, making it the perfect disinfectant.

“Both UVC and ozone are powerful enough to kill most microbes on your shoes on their own but combining them provides an unbeatable level of sanitization and peace of mind,” said Daniel Gil.

Utilizing the UVZone disinfectant station will reduce the amount of germs being in your business.

PathO3Gen Solutions will work with users to find optimal placement for the stations. Often, the best spot to place them is at the entrance of your business to prevent germs from entering on shoes.

Placing these sanitizers at other transition points of your building such as doorways or before elevators are also an effective way to curb the spread of germs.
