HOUSTON—In response to COVID-19 and in anticipation of the flu season, apartment manager LYND is providing long-term antimicrobial protection from germs such as bacteria, molds and viruses. To do that, it is using the BioprotectUs System by ViaClean Technologies to disinfect its 20,000 residential units and common areas.

"With coronavirus, it's like we all just encountered Jaws and now we need reassurance it's safe to go back in the water," said A. David Lynd, LYND CEO. "The apartment industry needs to find a solution that disinfects our assets and safeguards our residents so they have confidence and peace-of-mind that their living environments are healthy and free from harmful germs."

BioprotectUs encompasses an array of EPA registered and FDA-compliant technologies that disinfect surfaces and spaces. LYND chose the system because it contains Bioprotect, a water-based antimicrobial treatment.
