Cleaners aren’t registered with the EPA and do not require registration to be sold in the marketplace. Cleaning products do not kill germs and cannot make any public health claims on their labels that they do kill germs. Watch out for “antimicrobial” cleaners or other marketing terms that allude to killing germs but are not regulated. A good rule of thumb to distinguish between cleaners and disinfectants is to make sure the product has an EPA number on the label. If there isn’t an EPA number on the label, be safe and only use the product to clean up dirt and other organic matter.

Yes, when used according to disinfection instructions.
Our disinfectants are tuberculocidal and tested with a 5% organic load on the surface to simulate real use cases. 如果有可见的碎片/污垢, it is necessary to “pre-clean” to remove this prior to application, because debris can serve as a physical barrier that prevents contact with organisms and reduces product efficacy.
环境设计(DfE) is part of the EPA’s Safer Choice Program that helps consumers identify products with safer chemical ingredients – without sacrificing quality or performance. You can be assured that products carrying the DfE logo meet stringent criteria to protect your family, 你的工作场所和环境.
如果你最近转到 CleanCide from a different disinfectant, you may notice a residue or stickiness. This is especially common if the last product you used was a quaternary ammonium-based disinfectant – known as a QUAT. 在几次清洗之后, CleanCide should lift and remove the old residue, and there will no longer be a stickiness. If a light layer of residue does develop, a quick rinse with water after the listed contact time should resolve this.
如果你最近开始使用 CleanCide from a different disinfectant, you may notice a musty odor at first. That smell is CleanCide removing residue that has built up on the surface over time. This is especially true if the last product that you used was a quaternary ammonium-based disinfectant – known as a QUAT. 在几次清洗之后, CleanCide will lift and remove the old residue, 也就没有味道了.
以加速这一过程, you can also clean with a high-pH degreaser product to remove residual buildup. You can also clean with a high pH degreaser product to remove the surface from any residue that will speed up the process.
Currently our product comes with a very low (0.02%)新鲜干净的亚麻香味. We limit the amount of added fragrance to our products to reduce the amount of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in our composition, 哪些是刺激物.
CleanCide can be transported in high temperature conditions for short durations (<120°F) with no loss in product performance. Avoiding prolonged storage (warehousing) in extreme temperature conditions is advised, 因为产品可能会退化. To maximize shelf-life, Wexford recommends storing our products between 50°F and 85°F.
Wexford does not recommend exposing our products to extreme temperature due to the potential stress on product chemistry and packaging. While we have performed internal testing on ready-to-use CleanCide products and observed no changes in chemistry after freezing/thawing, freezing conditions can induce a phase change (expansion) that will stress the product packaging and potentially result in bottle failure/leakage.
凝固点: The freezing point for CleanCide is approximately 30°F. During domestic transport we do not expect bulk shipments to freeze, 但在极端天气情况下, 这可能发生. 如果产品是冷冻的, allow it to thaw and gently agitate prior to conducting cleaning and disinfecting operations.
CleanCide has the lowest toxicity rating allowable by the EPA, which means it poses the lowest risk to the health of employees, 病人, 学生, 客户或环境. CleanCide 是柠檬酸碱度, 哪一种是非呼吸刺激物, and our surface compatibility is excellent. It is tough on germs and bacteria, but gentle on surfaces and users. CleanCide provides all the benefits of an EPA approved List N disinfectant without the risk of traditional chemicals.
