Kart Kleen Launching a Clean Revolution with an Innovative Approach
August 2, 2021
Disinfection and cleaning have been a vital part of any business or organizational operations since the COVID-19 pandemic swept across the world. Since then, companies have been thinking of innovative ways to ensure the highest levels of cleanliness. One such group taking the lead in cleaning innovations is Kart Kleen. The cleaning solution company looks to reinvent the way people clean inanimate objects at a personal use to enterprise level.
Kart Kleen’s founders — Jason Gardiner, Brian Rose, and Joe Obresely — started the company to reduce the spread of bacteria, viruses, microbes, and other harmful things that spread through objects, equipment, and other materials. “We formed a well-rounded team to make our vision a reality,” shares company founder Jason Gardiner. “Today, the Kart Kleen team is firing on all cylinders with a viable product to reduce the spread of germs and bacteria.”
One of Kart Kleen’s top products is the company’s namesake. The Kart Kleen disinfector is the first to market cleaning apparatus that can disinfect shopping carts, hospital beds, delivery carts, wheelchairs, gurneys, and other wheeled apparatuses. The contraption features a cleaning facility in which grocery personnel can simply push the cart through to clean each cart individually. Typically, thousands of people handle the same cart regularly, leaving all kinds of traces of contaminants. Kart Kleen gives people the needed peace of mind to shop without worries of infection by bringing this innovation to the market, especially from Coronavirus and other disease-causing microbes.
Kart Kleen’s other flagship product is a PPE Disinfectant Unit that hospitals and other medical facilities can use to disinfect reusable protective equipment with ease. It’s an easier to use disinfecting product that solves the PPE shortage by allowing medical workers to thoroughly disinfect equipment for multiple use instead of throwing it away and using a new one each time. The company’s findings show that only 28 seconds in the PPE Disinfectant Unit can have five times 99.99% effectiveness. In simpler terms, Kart Kleen has five times the needed strength to kill bacteria, viruses, fungi, and Protozoa.
The company has also released a portable incident bag for first responders, police officers, and other field operators. The company has positioned the product to be an innovation that will “protect those who keep us safe.” It has also developed an entrance unit that looks like an airport X-ray scanner but acts as a disinfecting unit for facilities with high traffic.
Kart Kleen’s products use no harmful chemicals in the whole process, making it safer for wide-scale use. The Kart Kleen, PPE Disinfectant Unit, Entrance Unit and Incident Bag will soon enter the deep retail market, and hit more segments soon. As an American-made company, Kart Kleen also hopes to generate more jobs for Americans in-house and play their part in solving unemployment.
As the world eases into a post-pandemic reality, cleanliness remains on the minds of most people as they look to health standards and protocols as a way to curb infections and contaminations in the future. Kart Kleen looks to advocate for a safer future for all by making disinfection a more seamless part of our everyday lives. Jason maintains that this level of intricacy in cleaning protocols will most likely be a part of our daily habits for the foreseeable future.
Jason, Brian, Joe and the entire Kart Kleen team look forward to the day that every first responder, front liner, and shopper will have access to their equipment. Learn more about this innovation by visiting the company’s website and Instagram profile.

Missoula Company Develops Mobile Unit to Disinfect PPE
Missoula, MT – Kart Kleen, a Missoula, MT company, in collaboration with researchers at the University of Montana-Missoula, has developed a patent-pending invention to eliminate viruses like COVID-19 from Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Kart Kleen is in the process of sharing manufacturing blueprints and plans to begin production immediately in Montana.
Given the current shortage of PPE in hospitals and clinics, the founders of Kart Kleen – Jason Gardiner, Brian Rose, and Joe Obresley – quickly shifted gears (from an existing product that would sanitize items such as shopping carts) to a mobile machine that would safely disinfect N95 masks, face shields, protective goggles, and gloves without harming the equipment.
Dr. William Holben, the lead scientist for Kart Kleen, reported that initial measurements with the units indicate that just three minutes of treatment would inactivate greater than 99.9% of all viruses present.
Holben, who holds a Ph.D. in cell and molecular biology and has over 30 years of experience in environmental microbiology and molecular microbial ecology, said the team put their focus on fomite disinfecting. “Fomites are objects that can be contaminated with infectious organisms and serve in their transmission,” Holben said. “We were able to apply this concept and destroy these viruses and numerous other harmful microbes that survive on surfaces and can be transmitted onward.”
The Kart Kleen team reached out to community leaders, including Nelly Nicol, candidate for Montana State Auditor, who quickly became a supporter and began making calls.
“It’s what we do in Montana,” said Nicol. Our communities are tightly knit, and campaigning across the state has given me access to a diverse pool of influencers who I knew would want to help. I’ll continue to help until they receive an essential status so they can produce like madmen.”
“Our goal is to decrease the shortage of safety equipment and ease the minds of our medical teams, law enforcement, and essential workforce,” said Kart Kleen President and Founder Jason Gardiner. “They are still out there each day, keeping our country running in a safe, healthy manner. Anything we can do to help them and show how much we appreciate what they are putting on the line is our goal.”
Kart Kleen, LLC., is based out of Missoula, MT. Their mission is to enhance public safety through the disinfection of inanimate objects that can transmit viral and bacterial diseases between humans. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
