The Benefits of ZONO for Churches and Church Nurseries

Improve Your Church’s Disinfecting and Sanitizing Process

Like so many other organizations, churches have had to strengthen their disinfecting and sanitizing practices during the last several years. Not only must you find a way to keep communal spaces and shared items sanitized for churchgoers but you must also maintain a germ-free environment in your church’s nursery or child care room. With new groups of children entering the nursery throughout the day and sharing items like wooden blocks, books, puzzle pieces, dolls, and toys, it can be challenging to keep up. Nursery workers are often congregation members who volunteer for a shift, and their time is primarily devoted to caring for children. They likely do not have extra time to manually disinfect and sanitize all of the items in the nursery.

Enter the ZONO Disinfecting+ & Sanitizing* Cabinet—a revolutionary way to sanitize various items in your church nursery. With the ZONO, your nursery staff or volunteers can easily load the cabinet with infant and toddler toys, blocks, puzzle and game pieces, and many more items that need to be sanitized and disinfected after use. Wondering what to do with bulky baby gear like exersaucers and bouncers, or how to clean fabric toys or board books? The ZONO cabinet can safely disinfect those items without causing any damage. 

This is a list of items that can be placed in the ZONO:

• Paper, plastic, and cloth books
• Infant and toddler toys
• Blocks, Legos, and other building materials
• Craft supplies like crayons, markers, and glue sticks
• Dress-up clothes
• Stuffed animals
• Jumpers and bouncers
• Exersaucers

Once you have a ZONO in place for your church nursery, you can also use the cabinet to sanitize and disinfect other communal items like hymnals, missalettes, Bibles, prayer cards, or various other items used during your church services. 

The ZONO has a 99.99 percent disinfecting kill rate on non-porous surfaces and a 99.9 percent sanitizing kill rate on porous, semi-porous, and non-porous surfaces. What does this mean? In just a 30 minute cycle, your items will be thoroughly disinfected and sanitized and ready for immediate use.

How Does the ZONO Work?

A Quick, Simple, and Effective Solution

During a particularly busy church service, your nursery staff may be swamped with caring for a high volume of children at once. They do not have a lot of extra time to devote to disinfecting and sanitizing. Fortunately, with the ZONO cabinet, once you load the items, ZONO technology will do all the work—and the cabinet doesn’t require monitoring while it’s in use. 

Nursery workers will follow this simple process:

    1. Load toys, books, craft supplies, and other items into the cart.
    2. Wheel the cart into the ZONO cabinet.
    3. Lock the cabinet.
    4. Enter the start code.
    5. The disinfection and sanitation cycle will begin.
    6. Check back in 30 minutes.
    7. Items are ready for immediate use.

Keep Germs Out of the Nursery

Protect Your Church Congregation With the ZONO

The ZONO is not only an advantage to your church nursery staff but it is a benefit to your entire congregation: Parents can drop their children off at the nursery while they attend service with confidence that you are maintaining a germ-free environment. You can share these benefits of the ZONO with your church community:

    • Reduced cross-contamination and lowered risk of harmful bacteria
    • Safe for the environment—easing parents’ concerns
    • No need for monitoring and oversight—keeping focus on the children’s care
