EvaClean Donates to Convoy of Hope Disaster Relief Efforts

Forbes 2021 Top 100 Charity Convoy of Hope provides humanitarian services to disaster victims worldwide. Since Hurricane Ian made landfall in Florida on September 30, Convoy of Hope relief service teams have delivered relief to more than 100,000 people, while continuing to serve Hurricane Fiona survivors in Porto. Rico as well as Kentucky residents who experienced catastrophic flooding last July. Rescue teams are helping survivors by delivering water, food, building materials and other much-needed supplies. Convoy of Hope is a grassroots organization that also partners with other nonprofits, businesses, and government agencies to help distribute supplies to people affected by disaster.

While attending a recent cleaning industry trade show looking for new partners to further support disaster service teams, Convoy of Hope found EvaClean, a well-known supplier of disaster prevention solutions. infections. EvaClean quickly pledged to donate 149 pallets of its PurOne cleaner and sanitizer tablets along with 80 Protexus electrostatic sprayers to help mitigate mold damage in flood-affected areas.

“We are grateful to EvaClean for their incredible gift,” said Ethan Forhetz, national spokesperson for the Convoy of Hope. “The PurOne tablets will be essential in enabling survivors to clean up after the devastation of the storm in a safe and environmentally responsible way.

In addition to mold, receding floodwaters can be contaminated with dangerous bacteria like E. coli, Staph, and Strep, which can lead to illness and infection. Although bleach is commonly used to solve these problems, it can be harmful to health and the environment. Safety is one of the main reasons Convoy of Hope was intrigued by PurOne. Its unique NaDCC chemistry creates HOCL when mixed with water, which is biodegradable and has the lowest toxicity rating, yet has four times the destructive power of bleach.

Convoy of Hope was also impressed with the ease of use of PurOne. The tablets easily dilute to a variety of strengths, from food-surface-safe disinfectant to hospital-grade sporicide, and can be used to clean, disinfect, remove mold, and kill many dangerous pathogens. In addition, PurOne is easier to transport and store because a pallet is equivalent to a truck full of bleach. PurOne is also one of the few products registered with the EPA for application by electrostatic sprayer. EvaClean’s Protexus electrostatic sprayers allow users to sanitize more surface area faster, more thoroughly, and with fewer chemicals.

“It is a privilege to support Convoy of Hope and provide the necessary relief supplies to help the Disaster Services team get the citizens of Florida back on their feet,” said Steve Wilson, CEO of EvaClean.

EvaClean’s donation of over six million tablets ensures enough product to clean over 60 billion square feet or over 15 billion square feet in a deep clean.

“EvaClean’s generosity allows Convoy to have a meaningful impact on Florida’s long-term recovery and enables our disaster services teams to continue to provide assistance to those in need,” Forhetz said.

As Hurricane Ian survivors begin to rebuild their lives, Convoy of Hope and partner organizations will distribute flood buckets with PurOne tablets and other relief supplies to more than 128,000 individuals and families in need. . Response teams will then seek to serve other disaster-affected areas as well.
