Cleaning company in Lubbock uses same technology used by NASA

Posted: Updated:

Using the same technology NASA used to keep its space shuttles clean, Cleaning Services of Lubbock is helping sanitize and sterilize spaces here on the ground.

"NASA uses it, it's got to be the best, well it is the best," Cleaning Services of Lubbock Owner David Tobin said.

The Beyond Machine can clean 2,000 square feet per hour.

 "It kills surface germs, it kills everything out of the air, it kills C-DIFF, MRSA, hepatitis A, mold, bacteria, you name it," Tobin said.

The AP 3,000 Machine can clean 3,000 square feet an hour.

"Does nothing but kills germs and viruses," Tobin said.

These machines are advanced forms of air purifiers built for NASA in the 1990's and break down organic contaminants in the air. They are used to sanitize and sterilize buildings now in Lubbock.

"A lot of assisted living homes, medical facilities, doctors buy them, a lot of home owners have them," Tobin said.

While keeping spaces safe, Cleaning Services of Lubbock is also giving back. A percentage of sales goes to the Lubbock Symphony Orchestra. 

"It's what we're supposed to do during hard times, we're supposed to help others," Tobin said.

A study at a Dallas-based operating room in 2015 found these devices can remove 80 percent of bacteria and 90 percent of air particles. The Texas Ranges Baseball facility and dozens of other MLB teams use a version of it. NASA notes, while the technology may eventually clean air for deep space exploration, its best uses for now are in offices and industrial areas.
