Client Testimonial

  • Residential Cleaning & Disinfection Services

    "Thanks again for the super professional service, your guys attitude and manners around my house and family were remarkable. I am not an easy customer but tonight I am surely a very happy one!"

  • Professional and Courteous Service

    Please thank your team for their hard work.

    They were professional and courteous and left the apartment cleaner than it was before! I look forward to contacting IAQ again for any aircon work!

    Thanks again.

  • The team just left about 10 minutes ago. Everything went very well- very professional. They were here early and had already checked in with the front office to get badges. Everything was left very clean after and they were very professional and efficient. I'm really happy- thank you.

  • I spoke with my husband who was here during the cleaning and he had nothing but good things to say about the your team!

    He said they arrived promptly and were very thorough from what he could see, both from inside the condo as well as going outside to the connecting unit. He was very impressed with their professionalism.

    Thank you very much !

  • A pest control product too

    Initially the first thing we noticed was those pesky mosquitoes suddenly disappeared from the office. We asked the makers if GermXit® had anything to do with this and found out that mosquitoes don't like Tea Tree Oil, it repeals them, so that was an added bonus. Clean air and no more mosquitoes.

  • Better than we thought !

    When we moved to a new office, everyone started to get sick. We asked for the air conditioners to be cleaned but that didn't seem to help. So we had GermXit® installed and hoped that would do the trick.  Over the next few months the sickness levels dropped and the staff started to comment that they hadn't had a cold or flu for a long time. Some of the staff have now bought GermXit® for their home too.

    Thanks GermXit®, it really works.

Coastal Energy Thailand drilling rig – Gulf of Thailand

 

Airborne Tea Tree Oil Used for Treatment of Air Quality Aboard a Drilling Rig

 

Coastal Energy Company is an international exploration & production company with principal assets in Thailand and Malaysia and operates a number of drilling rigs in the waters around Southeast Asia.

Symptoms

During 2013 managers experienced a high rate of respiratory illnesses on offshore drilling rigs. Worker downtime and reduced productivity were costly and unsafe.

The solution

IAQ cleaned the systems and deployed tea tree oil gel dispensers in all AHU’s onboard the rigs. GermXit® has infused tea tree oil in a water based gel that is designed to evaporate[1]. Being water based, as air flows over the gel, vapor containing the tea tree oil rises from the dispenser and is circulated throughout interior areas of the rig.

New test cultures taken 10 days after treatment with GermXit® airborne tea tree and then again 30 days later show levels dropping to near zero.

“Most important we found that the number of illnesses dropped around 80%.

Further the nasty smell that dominated disappeared.”

– Mr. Martijn le Duc, MOPU Superintendent[2]

IAQ trained onboard maintenance people to check and replenish the GermXit® gel dispensers in the air handling system. Regular checks are carried out to ensure the levels of contaminants remains low.

“We had IAQ out again to do a 2nd rig and again

we could see an immediate effect.” – Mr. Martijn le Duc[2]

Global use

GermXit® is now in use onboard a number of FSO ships and almost 100 oil and gas rigs and platforms around the globe. Additionally GermXit® is used in hundreds of homes, factories, hospitals, hotels, shopping centers and schools throughout Asia, Africa and the Middle East.

About GermXit® and Tea Tree Oil

IAQ Technologies is a commercial ventilation cleaning service with offices in Melbourne, Australia and Bangkok Thailand. Regular cleaning of ducts and air handling systems is an essential maintenance item in any commercial building but IAQ wanted to go one step further. An effective air treatment system was needed to finish the job and keep working between cleanings so, GermXit® was developed. Tea tree oil was chosen because of its proven effectiveness, it is all natural and it is renewable.

IAQ chemists infused tea tree oil in a water based gel designed to evaporate. As water in the gel evaporates; the tea tree oil itself is carried in an airborne vapor that permeates the entire area where it is deployed. Either forced air (fans, HVAC) or simple air movement circulates it. Within hours the tea tree oil is doing its job controlling germs, yeasts, molds, fungi and bacteria – which in turn controls odors, insects and other pests. There is even strong evidence showing tea tree oil controls a number of viruses. As long as GermXit® is maintained in an area, undesirable organisms are controlled. The tea tree oil is always in the environment.

What is Tea Tree Oil?

By definition it is a broad spectrum antimicrobial, natural antiseptic, bactericidal anti viral, essential oil. Tea Tree Oil is effective against mold/mildew/bacteria/pollen/fungus/yeast.

What is Melaleuca Alternifolia?

It is the Latin name for the tree that produces the essential tea tree oil from its leaves.

How does Tea Tree Oil work?

It destroys the spores membrane – the spore (mold/mildew/bacteria/pollen/ fungus/yeast, becomes inert.

แท่นขุดเจาะน้ำมัน – พลังงานนอกชายฝั่ง บริเวณอ่าวไทย

 

น้ำมันจากต้นชาใช้เพื่อดูแลคุณภาพอากาศในพื้นที่ขุดเจาะน้ำมัน

 

บริษัทพลังงานชายฝั่ง เป็นบริษัทนานาชาติที่ดำเนินการสำรวจและผลิตทรัพยากรหลักในประเทศไทยและมาเลเซีย มีแท่นขุดเจาะหลายแห่งในเขตน่านน้ำโดยรอบภูมิภาคเอเชียตะวันออกเฉียงใต้

สถานการณ์

ระหว่างปี 2556 เจ้าหน้าที่ระดับผู้จัดการหลายคนเจ็บป่วยเกี่ยวกับระบบทางเดินหายใจขณะปฏิบัติงานที่แท่นขุดเจาะซึ่งอยู่นอกฝั่ง เวลาทำงานและผลผลิตที่ลดลงทำให้สิ้นเปลืองค่าใช้จ่ายรวมทั้งความไม่ปลอดภัยในด้านสุขภาพ

การแก้ปัญหา

บริษัท ไอเอคิว เทคโนโลยีส์ (ประเทศไทย) จำกัด ได้ดำเนินการทำความสะอาดทั้งระบบ ติดตั้งเครื่องฟอกอากาศน้ำมันจากต้นชาในบริเวณพื้นที่เครื่องปรับอากาศขนาดใหญ่ (AHU) บนแท่นขุดเจาะ และฉีดผลิตภัณฑ์น้ำมันจากต้นชา GermXit® ซึ่งเป็นเจลน้ำที่ออกแบบเพื่อการระเหย[1] ด้วยลักษณะของไอน้ำ เมื่ออากาศไหลผ่านเหนือเจล ไอน้ำที่มีน้ำมันจากต้นชาผสมอยู่ก็จะลอยขึ้นจากเครื่องจ่ายและหมุนเวียนไปภายในพื้นที่ของแท่นขุดเจาะอย่างทั่วถึง

จากการทดสอบระยะเวลา 10 วัน หลังจากนำผลิตภัณฑ์น้ำมันจากต้นชา GermXit® มาใช้ อีก 30 วันต่อมา ปรากฏว่าระดับการเจ็บป่วยลดลงเกือบเป็นศูนย์

           – มร. มาร์ติน เลอ ดัค ผู้จัดการฝ่ายของแท่นขุดเจาะได้กล่าวว่า [2]

““สิ่งสำคัญที่สุดที่เราพบคือจำนวนผู้เจ็บป่วยได้ลดลงไปประมาณ 80% ยิ่งกว่านั้น กลิ่นเหม็นอับต่างๆ ก็หายไป”

บริษัท ไอเอคิว เทคโนโลยีส์ (ประเทศไทย) จำกัด ยังได้ให้การอบรมแก่เจ้าหน้าที่ซ่อมบำรุงที่แท่นขุดเจาะให้ตรวจสอบ และเติมเจลน้ำมันจากต้นชา GermXit® ในระบบควบคุมอากาศ การตรวจสอบต้องกระทำอย่างสม่ำเสมอเพื่อให้แน่ใจว่าสิ่งปนเปื้อนต่างๆ อยู่ในระดับต่ำ

““เราได้ใช้บริการของ ไอเอคิว เทคโนโลยีส์ (ประเทศไทย) อีกที่แท่นขุดเจาะที่สอง และได้เห็นผลดีอย่างรวดเร็ว” – มร. มาร์ติน เลอ ดัค ได้กล่าวเสริม[2]
