One way to protect against the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is to clean surfaces and wash our hands frequently.
Hydrogen peroxide is currently in very high demand from hospitals fighting the spread of COVID-19. Research has shown that oxidizing disinfectants such as hydrogen peroxide are particularly effective against coronaviruses. Hydrogen peroxide is regularly used to disinfect medical equipment and is often preferred to bleach since it safely degrades into water and oxygen when exposed to light.
However, there is a difference between cleaning, disinfecting and sanitizing. Just ask the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
These three words are not necessarily interchangeable, especially during a pandemic.
Cleaning entails using soap and water to remove — but maybe not kill — germs and dirt.
Disinfecting uses chemicals to kill the germs you are trying to avoid.
Sanitizing is the act of cleaning and/or disinfecting to cut the number of germs on a surface or object.
The CDC has released a study that proves that a hydrogen peroxide solution of a concentration as little as 0.5% efficiently inactivates coronaviruses (e.g. SARS, MERS) on inanimate surfaces within 1 min, and deactivates all airborne particulates within 5 mins of initial H2O2 exposure. That is why we strongly believe that our ViTralizer can help tackle the spread in the community.
The ViTralizer has been designed to ensure maximum safety, suitable for it’s commercial or household applications. The unit is equipped with user friendly components making its operation really simple. Simply fill the reservoir (about 1 qt), set the room size, push start and leave the room. The “ViTralizer” is capable of sanitizing over 17,000 cubic feet (2,125 Square Feet @ 8 ft ceilings) in one run.
In less than an hour, people can safely return to the now sanitized area. If you need more space covered, just move the machine to a different location and run it again.
It’s that easy.
