About On-Site Sterile

On-Site Sterile is a mobile sterilization service that removes Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) bacteria from football and hockey gear.  We sterilize the athlete’s gear at a reasonable cost, with our staff handling all aspects of the process while on the school grounds.

On-Site Sterile sterilizes the athletic gear with chlorine dioxide gas. The EPA considers this the highest level of bacteria kill, removing 99.9999% (6-log) of all pathogens, including MRSA, bacteria, and viruses. Chlorine dioxide gas is a safe, dry gas that penetrates sports equipment material. It reaches deep into seams and cracks, some so small that even liquids can’t penetrate.

Our services include:

  • Sterilization of sports gear (6-log kill) with chlorine dioxide gas

  • Removal of odors found on football and hockey gear

  • No deposits left on the gear after our process

  • A printout report is issued, verifying the sterilization process

  • Our equipment produces pure chlorine dioxide gas, without acidic byproducts

Student athletic gear most often sterilized:

  • Football helmets, gloves, shoulder pads, thigh pads, knee pads, football cleats

  • Hockey gloves, elbow pads, shin pads, hockey skates, goalie pads, neck guards, chin guards

  • Lacrosse gear, Wrestling helmets, Umpire pads, Baseball catchers pads

  • All other gear and equipment that cannot be washed in hot water

Financial Support Program

Schools often relay on alumni, booster clubs, and game day donations to support the athletic programs, gear, and equipment purchases.  On-Site Sterile offers support and training for managing a financial support program for athletic departments. This program requires the involvement of student athletes with training and phone scripts. These programs have been very successful, especially calling on alumni who recognize that the school’s current student athletes may well be wearing the very same gear they wore.
