Worried that your Home or Officemight be unhealthy for you, your family, and your employees?
The more we live the Corona Virus or COVID-19 experience, and after reading official information regarding the control of disease and infections, we have come to the understanding that prevention is better than remediation and that the cleaning and disinfection of surfaces are needed. As human beings, we use our hands for an amazing amount of things and, with those hands, we touch many surfaces. Hand-washing, particularly before and after activities, is crucial for the prevention of disease and infection. In the same manner, cleaning and disinfecting high-traffic surfaces in our homes and offices helps eliminate unwanted germs and viruses.
Disinfection does not replace cleaning and sanitizing!
“Current evidence suggests that SARS-CoV-2 may remain viable for hours to days on surfaces made from a variety of materials. Cleaning of visibly dirty surfaces followed by disinfection is a best practice measure for prevention of COVID-19 and other viral respiratory illnesses in community settings.”
(Cleaning and Disinfection for Households Interim Recommendations for U.S. Households with Suspected or Confirmed Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19))
Definitions from the Oxford Dictionary:
Cleaning: the work of making the inside of a house, etc. clean
Sanitizing: to remove the parts of something that could be considered unpleasant
Disinfecting: the process of cleaning something using chemicals that kill bacteria and other organisms
There are many different disinfectants with different chemical compounds recommended by the EPA (recommendations). We have chosen to use VitalOxide, a disinfectant that contains no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and kills a wide range of viruses and bacteria. It is safe to use on almost any surface including food (Food Contact Sanitizer) and textiles, particularly important as we want to be able to get to all the nooks and crannies where disinfection is needed. VitalOxide is also a Mold and Mildew Killer, Allergen Eliminator, Odor Eliminator and ensures the maintenance of high air quality. While VitalOxide is a powerful disinfectant, no amount of disinfecting, cleaning, or sanitizing kills 100% of bacteria and viruses.
There are many different emerging techniques and tools to apply disinfectants. For now, we are using a fogger and are waiting to receive an electrostatic applicator.

- Throughout the House
- Dinning Rooms and Kitchens
- Individual Rooms
- Closets and shoe closets (with caution on fabrics that can be affected by water or discoloration)
