What can we do to reduce the spread of Covid-19?
Cleaning and disinfecting are part of a broad approach to preventing infectious diseases in public and private space.
It is imperative to know the difference between cleaning, disinfecting, and sanitizing.
Cleaning removes germs, dirt, and impurities from surfaces or objects. Cleaning works by using soap (or detergent) and water to physically remove germs from surfaces. This process does not necessarily kill germs, but by removing them, it lowers their numbers and the risk of spreading infection.The problem, however, is the risk of cross-contamination. The mopping solution and the cleaning tools could be spreading disease in the absence of a disinfectant.
Sanitizing lowers the number of germs. Sanitizing is meant to reduce, not kill, the occurrence and growth of bacteria, viruses and fungi. Sanitizing is better than cleaning alone but the reduction of pathogen populations on environmental surfaces is exponentially better when you disinfect.
Disinfecting kills germs on surfaces or objects. According to the WHO (World Health Organization), if you think a surface may be infected with COVID-19, clean it with a disinfectant to kill the virus in order to protect yourself and others.
Not that we know that disinfecting is key to protecting yourself and others, what disinfectant should you use?
When evaluating and comparing disinfectant products, take a close look at their core ingredients. The solution we use called Vital Oxide contains a unique chemical compound called chlorine dioxide.
While other competitors and manufacturers have attempted to copy and produce a form of stabilized chlorine dioxide similar to Vital Oxide, the manufactures consider this product to have a revolutionary formula that is simply unequaled.
Chlorine dioxide has been used in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, to purify drinking water, and most recently to kill MRSA in schools and hospitals. Also consider carefully what kind of chemicals you want around your children, employees, patients, students, and close family members. Most disinfectants and mold removers on the market are extremely toxic, but Vital Oxide gives you peace of mind that you are using an effective product that does not come with alarming safety warnings and precautions.
In fact, Vital Oxide does not contain and VOCs ( volatile organic compounds) and is non-irritating to the skin and non-corrosive to treated articles.
You do not even need any PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) when using Vital Oxide in a mister, sprayer, fogger or wipes.
Our recommendation for offices and homes is to clean but also disinfect using a Health Canada approved disinfectant.
