Cutting Edge Tech: Leading the fight with disinfection

Effective in FDA-compliant lab testing, Continuous Infections Microbial Reduction (CIMR) is a leader in disinfection. In a world newly aware of the dangers of quickly-spreading viruses, an abundance of technology solutions across the globe are attempting to alleviate these concerns. Many of these efforts, however, are proving to be expensive and largely insufficient. Understanding the flaws of existing solutions has helped the Esparaza Pest Control company create its CIMR Multi-Layered Air/Surface Defense Technology, which is able to disinfect viruses, bacteria, mold, and fungi both in the air and on surfaces.

Esparaza is just one of the innovative companies you can find on the supplier and buyer portal for governement agencies, GovShop.
