The product is contained in a 200 ml bottle, in recyclable aluminum. It can disinfect a whole class, up to 125 m3. “This aerosol has a recipe for bactericidal, fungicidal and virucidal disinfectant. The maintenance agent has only to put it in the middle of the room, open the bottle before leaving the premises. The gas diffuses into the room for three to four minutes. Half an hour later, the space is completely sanitized, ”explains Laurent Chouraqui, one of the two associates of CleanRwith, patent holder.

Sébastien Montanari, principal of the college of Bracieux (Loir-et-Cher), immediately adopted this innovation, confident in its effectiveness: “It is very difficult for our maintenance agents to go and clean in every corner. Spraying makes it possible to disinfect areas that are usually less accessible ”.

A complement to classic cleaning

Another advantage of the device: its QR code system which allows the use of the spray to be traced and to guarantee its correct use. This is what seduced the president of the Loir-et-Cher departmental council, Nicolas Perruchot: “We have 836 classrooms to manage. It is impossible to have an eye everywhere, even if the staff are doing their job very well. This tool is not a substitute for cleaning. It is a complement to that provided for by the health protocol, but it has the merit of centralizing information. We want students to come to class with peace of mind ”.

Terminals will be installed in front of the colleges. Just to reassure parents who will also be able to verify that disinfection has taken place, by scanning the security QR code.

The classrooms will thus be disinfected once a week every Friday evening until the school holidays of All Saints at least. The department spent 26,000 euros to order 6,000 units of this spray which could well set off.
