Pandemic Hospital Cleaning with Kevin Wang of PowerPlus DCU
Pandemic hospital clean-up is the topic of conversation this week on the Disaster Podcast. Join hosts Jamie Davis, the Podmedic, and Sam Bradley, along with Becky DePodwin as they chat with Kevin Wang from PowerPlusDCU.com. Kevin’s company is one of the premier disaster clean up specialists in the world.
A few years back we featured Kevin on the show about how his company, at the request of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), was asked to come into a major U.S. hospital to swab surfaces in supposed clean and sterile environments. Kevin’s team found some very disturbing things when they revealed their results.
As a result of that event, Kevin and his team created a device that could be used to sterilize hospital rooms between patients. The Bio Blaster is a six-foot-tall UV light emitting device that can be placed in a patient room for ten minutes and sterilize all surfaces prior to admitting the next patient. Check out the Bio Blaster Go Fund Me Campaign which Kevin set up to help them build units in advance of anticipated need during the current pandemic crisis.
