Bactibarrier
BactiBarrier® Protects Against Unwanted Microbes

BactiBarrier is a bonded, eco-friendly, odorless, and noncorrosive nanotechnology inhibits the growth and multiplication of harmful viable organic matter. It is a long-lasting invisible solution that gives you peace of mind knowing your space is protected.

BactiBarrier embodies a physical mode of action using cationic charge density in the crosslinked polymer structure giving this quat silane technology multi-spectrum control. The strain of the microbe has no bearing on the efficacy of the mode of action, thus all strains of staph are controlled, including MRSA strains.


Long-Lasting Protection

BactiBarrier bonds to the treated surface, standing guard against future microbial growth. It provides long-lasting protection that keeps working again and again. The cured antimicrobial is nonvolatile, insoluble, and non-leaching which allows the treatment to last.


Environmentally Friendly

BactiBarrier bonds with the treated surface, mechanically destroying microbes which allow for less harmful chemicals to be released into the environment. This biodegradable product is typically more effective as it restores to its natural elements.

Typically, antimicrobial products use heavy metals to essentially chemically poison microbes. This usually results in some of that poison coming off the surface each time it destroys a microbe, leaving behind less antimicrobial effectiveness, and introduces into the environment.

History

Rick Allen, the owner of Midwest Enviro Solutions, has been in the construction, remodeling, and indoor air business since 1981 and has been servicing Southeast Michigan for almost four decades. Through his previous involvement in inspection and assessment of homes and businesses, he saw a need for addressing safety issues and completing work in a more effective way. The many problems that he came across triggered the quest for mold and impacted his career indefinitely. Around ten years ago, Rick made the switch into the mold and air testing industry where he became certified in a multitude of areas. Rick has certification in construction codes, Bio-risk management, Indoor Air Asbestos Assessment, Asbestos contracting, and water restoration technician. For the last couple of years Rick was developing a program called the Community Wellness Initiative where he would consult with businesses regarding employee absenteeism and how unsanitized areas contribute to this growing problem. Right after the pandemic hit, Midwest Enviro Solutions wanted to act and help the community as best as we could. Due to the overwhelming attention on how infectious diseases can spread and impact our daily lives, health and livelihood, there was an outcry to implement improved precautions to better protect the community. This is where Midwest Enviro Solutions stepped in and began to adapt to provide sanitation and decontamination services for businesses and homes across Mid-Michigan.

  • “They were able to schedule our appointment right away. Rick was friendly and they worked efficiently. Waiting for them to return and test the air quality following treatment.
