Apparatus And Systems With Timer For Air-borne Cleaning Of Surfaces

There is provided a system and method of cleaning surfaces of an enclosable environment of a contamination comprising a microbial and viral load. The method includes the steps of sealing the enclosable environment and placing water, and a solid or gel pack, into a container and generating a vortex the container by rotating an impeller. The agitation causes the solid or gel pack to release a gaseous cleaning agent. An air-borne spray exiting from the container spreads throughout the enclosable environment to contact the surfaces to be cleaned within the enclosable environment. The enclosable environment is maintained closed for an effective time period while the air-borne spray dwells on the surfaces to eliminate or substantially reduce the load of the contamination.

1 Independent Claims

  • Claim 1. A method of cleaning contaminated surfaces in an enclosable environment, the contamination comprising any one or more of a microbial load, a viral load, and malodorous matter, the method comprising: placing water and a solid or gel pack into a container of a treatment apparatus, the solid or gel pack configured to release a gaseous cleaning agent upon mixing with watersealing the enclosable environment with the treatment apparatus contained thereinautomatically, by preset timer, activating a motor of the treatment apparatus to agitate the water with an impeller in the container to thereby generate a vortex of water within the container of the treatment apparatus, the generation of the vortex causing an air-borne spray of liquid and gaseous cleaning agent to exit from a top end of the container and to contact the contaminated surfaces in the enclosable environmentand automatically terminating the motor when the preset timer has elapsed.
  • Claim 10. A system for cleaning a plurality of enclosable environments sequentially, each of the plurality of enclosable environments having therein contaminated surfaces having any one or more of a microbial load, a viral load, and malodorous matter, the system comprising: placing water and a solid or gel pack into a container of a first of a plurality of treatment apparatus, the solid or gel pack configured to release a gaseous cleaning agent upon mixing with watersealing a first of the plurality of enclosable environments with the first treatment apparatus contained thereinautomatically, by preset timer, activating a motor of the first treatment apparatus to agitate the water with an impeller in the container to thereby generate a vortex of water within the container of the treatment apparatus, the generation of the vortex causing an air-borne spray of liquid and gaseous cleaning agent to exit from a top end of the container and to contact the contaminated surfaces in the first enclosable environmentand automatically terminating the motor when the preset timer has elapsed, thereby completing a cleaning cycle.
