Client Testimonial

  • When we first moved into the new building everyone got sick with colds and flu. We cleaned the air conditioners and installed Germxit and notice illness reduced over the following months. We also had a problem with allot of mosquitoes in the office and Germxit got rid of thoses too. It seems mosquitoes don't like tea tree oil, which was a bonus for us. Thanks Germxit !

  • “...we found that the number of illnesses dropped by around 80%. Further the nasty smells that dominated disappeared. I would highly recommend Germxit to anyone”
    MOPU Superintendent

  • “We added GermXit™ to a 2nd rig and ... we could see an immediate effect.”
    MOPU Superintendent

  • “Under the conditions of the experiment, GermXit™ gel had a measurable biocidal effect on E.coli and C.albicans”
    university lab report

  • “The study has demonstrated that GermXit™ gel has the potential to be a useful decontamination agent in HVAC duct systems”
    university lab report

  • “There has been an apparent decrease in coughs, colds, etc. ...the decrease in these ailments in such a closed environment of a ship is testament to the overall effectiveness of your process.”
    ships captain

  • “There is no doubt the product GermXit™ has not only improved the air quality throughout the living facility it continues to neutralize and disperse all Bacteria, Fungi, etc. from the system.”
    drilling rig manager

  • “I have used GermXit ever since the system was first installed and will continue to do so.”

Airborne Tea Tree Oil Used for Treatment of Air Quality Aboard a Drilling Rig

 

Coastal Energy Company is an international exploration & production company with principal assets in Thailand and Malaysia and operates a number of drilling rigs in the waters around Southeast Asia.

Symptoms

During 2013 managers experienced a high rate of respiratory illnesses on offshore drilling rigs. Worker downtime and reduced productivity were costly and unsafe.

The solution

IAQ cleaned the systems and deployed GermXit® dispensers in all AHU’s onboard the rigs. GermXit® has infused tea tree oil in a water based gel that is designed to evaporate[1]. Being water based, as air flows over the gel, vapor containing the tea tree oil rises from the dispenser and is circulated throughout interior areas of the rig.

New test cultures taken 10 days after treatment with GermXit® airborne tea tree and then again 30 days later show levels dropping to near zero.

“Most important we found that the number of illnesses dropped around 80%.

Further the nasty smell that dominated disappeared.”

– Mr. Martijn le Duc, MOPU Superintendent[2]

IAQ trained onboard maintenance people to check and replenish the GermXit® gel dispensers in the air handling system. Regular checks are carried out to ensure the levels of contaminants remains low.

“We had IAQ out again to do a 2nd rig and again

we could see an immediate effect.” – Mr. Martijn le Duc[2]

Global use

GermXit® is now in use onboard a number of FSO ships and almost 100 oil and gas rigs and platforms around the globe. Additionally GermXit® is used in hundreds of homes, factories, hospitals, hotels, shopping centers and schools throughout Asia, Africa and the Middle East.

About GermXit® and Tea Tree Oil

IAQ Technologies is a commercial ventilation cleaning service with offices in Melbourne, Australia and Bangkok Thailand. Regular cleaning of ducts and air handling systems is an essential maintenance item in any commercial building but IAQ wanted to go one step further. An effective air treatment system was needed to finish the job and keep working between cleanings so, GermXit® was developed. Tea tree oil was chosen because of its proven effectiveness, it is all natural and it is renewable.

IAQ chemists infused tea tree oil in a water based gel designed to evaporate. As water in the gel evaporates; the tea tree oil itself is carried in an airborne vapor that permeates the entire area where it is deployed. Either forced air (fans, HVAC) or simple air movement circulates it. Within hours the tea tree oil is doing its job controlling germs, yeasts, molds, fungi and bacteria – which in turn controls odors, insects and other pests. There is even strong evidence showing tea tree oil controls a number of viruses. As long as GermXit® is maintained in an area, undesirable organisms are controlled. The tea tree oil is always in the environment.

What is Tea Tree Oil?

By definition it is a broad spectrum antimicrobial, natural antiseptic, bactericidal anti viral, essential oil. Tea Tree Oil is effective against mold/mildew/bacteria/pollen/fungus/yeast.

What is Melaleuca Alternifolia?

It is the Latin name for the tree that produces the essential tea tree oil from its leaves.

How does Tea Tree Oil work?

It destroys the spores membrane – the spore (mold/mildew/bacteria/pollen/ fungus/yeast, becomes inert.
