Shopping Cart Sanitizing
Automatically Sanitize Shopping Carts to Prevent Spread of Germs & Viruses
Shopping carts can be a major challenge to keep clean and disinfected after each use. Before the Coronavirus pandemic, many shoppers gave little thought to the possible germs and viruses that are on the cart they select. Today, a clean, disinfected cart is one of the first things they look for as they enter the store.
Test after test has revealed that shopping carts are the most bacterial contaminated objects customers come in contact within a retail store setting. Test site samples have shown that carts contain more bacteria than the store’s restroom sink drain, faucet handle, and toilet flush handle. In the age of Covid-19, this issue has been exponentially compounded as nervous customers look for the safest stores to shop.
As the pandemic broke, grocery chains reacted by assigning an employee to wipe down each cart with disinfectant as the unit re-entered the store. This has created additional labor costs for store management. An alternative to taking on this extra burden is to install an automatic shopping cart sanitizing system where carts are disinfected each time they are pushed into the store.
PureChem Systems has a patented system that has been protecting shoppers in the retail setting for many years before this pandemic. Their unique antimicrobial technology controls bacteria, viruses, fungi, mold, algae and yeasts on a wide variety of treated materials like shopping carts. This EPA registered antimicrobial solution is proven effective against the transmission of Covid-19 and has been used safely and effectively in all areas including construction and hospital applications. This technology is the foundation for their PureCart sanitizing systems.
PureCart uses a mist application to disinfect each cart that is pushed through the unit. It is not a simple cart wash but a powerful disinfectant on the entire surface which keeps the cart healthy and safe for each customer. The purifying mist goes on quickly and dries in minutes as the excess solution evaporates quickly.
- Effective in eliminating 99.997% of bacteria, virus, algae, mold, and fungus on treated surfaces
- No rinsing required
- Non-toxic, non, hazardous, non-leaching, water-based & child safe
- Helps control odors
The system is designed to purify the carts by removing bacteria, virus, and germs and then inhibiting new growth for a period of time. The spray system is a low pressure, “misting” application. It will not remove stains or sticky residue on carts; however, some cleaning will occur naturally because of the concentration of water in the process. The carts will look and feel cleaner.
As the world faces the Coronavirus, it’s recommended that all carts be run through PureCart each time they enter the store. The decision should be based on how to meet your customers’ expectations of virus and bacteria free carts. Carts may be run through one at a time or “nested” in quantities set by store standards. The carts simply need to become moist to be protected.
