With safety on everyone’s minds as businesses begin to reopen, Waltham aims to help bring warehouse to their new normal with UltiClean™.
WALTHAM, Mass. (May 4, 2020) – Keeping safety and disinfection top of mind, Waltham Pest Services, a wholly owned subsidiary of Rollins Inc. (NYSE: ROL), announced today a new service to help businesses quickly and effectively kill a large spectrum of pathogens to help stop the spread of viruses.
When high-touch surfaces such as doorknobs, countertops and public seating areas are not disinfected, it creates the ideal opportunity for harmful pathogens to grow and spread rapidly amongst patrons. Businesses where people are eating, shopping and working must properly and thoroughly sanitize on a large-scale in order to keep their establishements as disinfected as possible. UltiClean™ is a proven, effective treatment for reducing the risk of such transmissions from occurring.
UltiClean™ is labeled by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on their “List N” of products that meet the criteria for use against SaRS-CoV-2, the causal agent of COVID-19. When applied properly, and at full strength by Waltham technicians, this disinfectant kills 99.99 percent of pathogenic bacteria, fungi and viruses on hard, non-porous surfaces and sanitizing soft, porous surfaces.
“UltiClean™ is proven to be effective against killing other known strands of coronavirus, such as canine and feline coronaviruses, as well as multiple influenza strains, all with incredibly low levels of toxicity,” said Hope Bowman, Board Certified Entomologist and Technical Training and Quality Manager for Waltham Pest Services. “Being able to use this proven product to disinfect hard surfaces and sanitize soft surfaces with almost no environmental impact or irritation to people is the best option for those businesses keeping safety at the forefront of their minds.”
Not only is UltiClean™ proven to sanitize and disinfect surfaces, its ingredients are also defined by the EPA as the lowest level of toxicity – Category IV, defined as “practically non-toxic and not an irritant.” It also contains no ozone-harming compounds, helping to keep the environment healthy. And it is rated “no rinse required on food contact surfaces” by NSF International, so it is safe for use in any establishment.
“We in the pest management industry have been using this product for years to clean commercial facilities after certain pest management services,” said Bowman. “Offering this service to the general public is a great opportunity that Waltham is glad to be a part of in these unprecedented times.”
Waltham Pest Services is dedicated to keeping your business clean and disinfected. We are committed to providing establishments a tough disinfectant that is a frontline defense in the battle against COVID-19.

CAUTION CONCERNING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
This release contains statements that constitute “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements include the Company’s claims that Waltham UltiClean™ will help businesses quickly and thoroughly suppress a wide variety of serious pathogens; provide an effective option for reducing risk and helping restore a safer and healthier business environment; will kill 99.99 percent of bacteria and viruses on hard, non-porous surfaces; can serve a broader public health purpose than its current commercial use; and should prove to be a very important step in helping remove pathogens from facilities. The actual results of the Company could differ materially from those indicated by the forward-looking statements because of various risks and uncertainties, including without limitation, the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the potential impact on global economic conditions and on capital and financial markets, changes in consumer behavior and demand, the potential unavailability of personnel or key facilities, modifications to the Company’s operations, and the potential implementation of regulatory actions; economic and competitive conditions which may adversely affect the Company’s business; the degree of success of the Company’s pest and termite process, and pest control selling and treatment methods; the Company’s ability to identify and integrate potential acquisitions; climate and weather trends; competitive factors and pricing practices; the Company’s ability to attract and retain skilled workers, and potential increases in labor costs; uncertainties of litigation; changes in various government laws and regulations, including environmental regulations; and the impact of the U. S. Government shutdown. All of the foregoing risks and uncertainties are beyond the ability of the Company to control, and in many cases the Company cannot predict the risks and uncertainties that could cause its actual results to differ materially from those indicated by the forward-looking statements.
