How RBT  Protectus Solutions Work

RBT Protectus solutions are more powerful than the typical bleach-based products commonly used in homes, as well as in hotels and schools. It continues to kill bacteria long after it’s been applied, and through the ‘residual barrier’, it leaves surfaces free from bacteria and germs for far longer than any bleach is able to.

For application of fogging which releases a mist which, although dry on contact, establishes a residual barrier on all areas within a ‘fogged’ room. The film produces a layer of microbe spikes that prevent any new bacteria from settling on the disinfected surface, thus preventing new colonisation.

A More Efficient Cleaning Regime With RBT Protectus Solutions

Cleaning regimes and protocols are now changing and adapting to a newer and more efficient manner. RBT Protectus solutions provide our clients with accredited cleaning products that leaves a long lasting effective barrier. This enables our clients to save money, time but more importantly, establish environments effective against pathogens for themselves, their employees or guests.
