New Disinfectant Launched by Orkin LLC for Fighting Wide Variety of Pathogens

The increasing concerns of germ transmission and the welfare of public citizens have provoked a pest control company called Orkin LLC to launch an effective option for restoring a healthier business environment. Orkin LLC is a completely owned subsidiary of Rollins Inc., a major player in this sector. The product called Orkin® VitalClean™ was launched in March 2020 for use in large-scale commercial and public recreational spaces for sanitization. This product utilizes a disinfectant that is EPA-registered for use against a wide variety of pathogens. The current COVID19 pandemic has prioritized the importance of hygiene and this is likely to propel consumers and other business minds to opt for this product to maintain a clean, safe, and healthy atmosphere.

Vice President of the department of Quality Assurance and Technical Services at Rollins Inc., Judy Black stated, “This product is a disinfectant that we offer was enlisted by EPA for specific use against SARS-CoV-2 virus, is almost non-toxic, and is magnificently effective to fight strong viruses such as the coronavirus. It also does not contain any ozone harming organic compound and is skin-friendly and mild on fabrics and hard surfaces.” This may pose as a major contributor to this market in the forthcoming years.

Rising Awareness about Cleanliness and Maintaining Hygiene Standards are likely to Boost Market

The rise in the development and utilization of biocontrol agents that can be used for population control of pests is a key factor promoting the pest control market growth. This, coupled with the increasing adoption of smart and long-lasting measures will also add impetus to the market. Additionally, the expansion of the integrated pest management industry, coupled with government support for the same is expected to boost the market. 

On the contrary, factors such as strict regulations on certain chemicals used for making these products may hamper the market in the long run. Nevertheless, the increasing number of construction activities for both residential, and commercial purposes and the increasing need to maintain cleanliness and hygiene of such buildings will create lucrative growth opportunities for the market in the coming years.
