COVID-19 Update

For Your Home. For Your Health.

The Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advocates for proper and regular surface disinfection of regularly touched surfaces and objects such as doorknobs, light switches, kitchen cabinets, and countertops, to prevent the spread of microbes that cause infections.

In the case of Coronavirus infections, the CDC, recommends to use regular detergent and water to clean the surface followed by the use of an effective disinfectant.

Per the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the following properties are considered ideal for a disinfectant

Broad-spectrum efficacy

A good disinfectant should have the capability of targeting a wide variety of organisms, i.e. bacterial, viral, and fungi microorganisms. It should also have a high efficacy in its action as an antimicrobial.

Non-inflammable

This property enables disinfectants to be used over large areas with no health or safety concern including use in areas with flammable products such as kitchen and laboratories.

Fast drying with short contact time

This property is essential to decrease the duration of bio-decontamination. A fast-acting agent quickly destroys microbes hence reducing the duration of potential contact with the microbes.

Non-toxic

The disinfectant should not harm the user and cause any discomfort. It should be user-friendly.

Surface Compatibility

The disinfectant should have the capability to be used on most surfaces and instruments without corroding them or damaging their structural integrity.

Ease of use

An ideal disinfectant should be easy to use, store and discard, with clearly labeled instructions.

Odorless

Ideal disinfectants should be odorless or with a pleasant smell to facilitate regular use.

Alcohol-free

Alcohol based Hand Sanitizers are contributing to many types of bacteria becoming alcohol resistant.

Environmentally-friendly

An ideal disinfectant should have the capability of being used in the environment without causing any harm to the users and the environment.

What Is Hypochlorous Acid?

Purify Enviro Group, based on the CDC’s requirements, strongly recommends Hypochlorous Acid as the most responsible molecule (HOCI) to fight viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens by individuals, businesses, factories, governments, industries, churches, municipalities, arenas, communities, or any environment that disinfection and a safe environment is required.
