A Novel Solution for Facilities' Toughest Challenges
Every year, nearly 60 million school days are lost due to influenza and the common cold1 and productivity losses linked to absenteeism cost an average of $225.8 billion.2 Cleaning and disinfecting is a critical first line of defense and the Clorox® Total 360® System represents a major breakthrough in the fight against illness-causing germs, helping cleaning professionals prevent and contain outbreaks and keeping facilities healthier during cold and flu season and beyond.
The Clorox® Total 360® System combines electrostatic technology with trusted Clorox® solutions, optimizing product delivery to provide comprehensive surface coverage in even the hardest-to-reach places. "The innovative system applies an electrostatic charge to the Clorox® disinfecting or sanitizing solution, delivering a powerful flow of charged particles that are attracted to surfaces with a force stronger than gravity," explains Kristina Vannoni, Associate Director – Marketing, Clorox Professional Products Company. "It covers up to 18,000 square feet per hour, providing superior surface coverage up to four times faster and using up to 65 percent less product compared with conventional trigger sprayers per square foot."
For Total Building Maintenance, Inc., a leading full-service janitorial company with operations in Texas, California, Maryland and Illinois, the Clorox® Total 360® System offers a way to go the extra mile for their clients. Total Building Maintenance recently adopted and began implementing the Clorox® Total 360® System to treat a wide variety of surfaces in their clients' facilities – including the sides, underside and backside of surfaces – more thoroughly and quickly than with traditional cleaning methods.

"Illness and absenteeism can have a huge impact on businesses, so we do everything we can to help prevent the spread of illness-causing germs. The Clorox® Total 360® System lets us do it in less time and with less product so we can provide efficient, comprehensive surface treatment that delivers an even cleaner, healthier environment for our clients."
