What are coronaviruses?

Coronaviruses are a family of related viruses including "the common cold," SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) and COVID-19. Coronaviruses cause respiratory tract infections. Humans transmit a coronavirus by spreading droplets through coughing or sneezing.

A new study shows coronavirus COVID-19 can survive for three to four hours in the air and 24 to 72 hours on hard surfaces like plastic and steel. Coronavirus Surface Life



Flooring and the Chain of Infection

Floors cleaned with liquid pH neutral cleaners turn into a bacteria buffet. Those floors become part of the chain of infection at your workplace, spreading viruses, bacteria and germs to more customers, students, staff, and patients.  

CDC guidelines recommend cleaning and disinfecting surfaces to reduce the spread of Coronaviruses:

  • Cleaning refers to the removal of dirt and impurities, including germs, from surfaces. Cleaning alone does not kill germs. But by removing the germs, it decreases their number and therefore any risk of spreading infection.

  • Disinfecting works by using chemicals, for example EPA-registered disinfectants, to kill germs on surfaces. This process does not necessarily clean dirty surfaces or remove germs. But killing germs remaining on a surface after cleaning further reduces any risk of spreading infection.

  • High touch surfaces include: Tables, doorknobs, light switches, counter tops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, sinks, etc.

How does Simix fight and destroy coronaviruses and other germs?

​Simix fights and destroys coronaviruses by sanitizing surfaces and leaving a safe, permanent, high pH. A surface with a high pH is hostile to microbes and viruses.



How Floors Spread Coronaviruses and Germs

Dry burnishing breaks down scuffs and
germs, sending those particles into the air.


Some particles return to the floor and are tracked all over. Others are churned up by walking feet and land on patients, staff and visitors.


Particles on shoes and people are easily transferred to patients and equipment.

Simix-Coated and Cleaned Floors Stop Viruses From Spreading

Using Simix on your floors will give you two lines of defense against the spread of dangerous coronaviruses. First, when you use Simix, you do not need to burnish. Thus you stop spreading dangerous viruses into the air. Second, Simix Coating and Simix De-greaser leave a permanent, safe, high pH on floors. Viruses and germs cannot live in high pH environment.


Simix-Coated and Sanitized Surfaces Stop Viruses from Spreading

Simix Degreaser and Simix Cleaner sanitize and disinfect wood, steel and plastic high-touch surfaces, keeping your staff, customers, patients and students healthy. Using Simix Coating to sanitize those surfaces leaves a permanent, safe, high pH, giving you an additional level of safety.


Simix A/C Ceramic Coating Fights Bacteria and Viruses in the Air

Simix A/C Ceramic Coating is sprayed on HVAC systems. It creates a permanent, safe, high pH that destroys bacteria and viruses, including legionella (Legionnaires) and coronaviruses.

Clean, Safe and Sanitized:Healthy Facilities Start with Simix

Simix Multi-Surface Kitchen Degreaser

Simix Multi-Surface Kitchen Degreaser cleans virtually any surface, from floor to walls to stainless steel and counter tops Simix Multi- Surface Degreaser leaves behind a safe, sanitized, high pH surface that destroys viruses including coronavirus.


Simix Multi-Surface Ceramic Coating

Simix High Shine Ceramic Coating creates a safe, permanent pH surface on your floor. A high pH surface resists the spread of viruses, germs and microbes. Simix High Shine Ceramic Coating does not have to be dry burnished. Dry burnishing spreads germs into the air. Simix High Shine Ceramic Coating stays cleaner longer and is easier to clean than traditional coatings, keeping staff, customers and patients, students and visitors healthy.


Simix A/C Ceramic Coating

Simix A/C Ceramic Coating is used on air conditioners, refrigeration systems, HVAC, evaporators and coils. Simix A/C Ceramic Coating maintains a safe, permanent, high pH that fights the growth of viruses and bacteria (including Legionella and viruses from the coronavirus family).

What is SPOT-ON?

Sustainable Photocatalytic Oxidation Technology (SPOT) is what we call the titanium dioxide inside Simix Coatings and Degreaser. Titanium dioxide is a safe, naturally occurring compound that reflects natural and artificial light. As that light is reflected,it converts water in the air into hydrogen peroxide, which breaks down bacteria, viruses, germs, mold, grime and stains.
