Virus Killer FAQ's:

Q: Does it kill viruses?
A: Yes, it is chemically formulated to kill viruses, and also bacteria too.

Q: Is it certified?
A: It has been tested and is accredited to several global standards for use as a liquid cleaner:

  • EN 14476 - viricidal efficacy against ‘enveloped’ viruses (including coronavirus 2019 n-CoV/SARS-CoV2, the virus that causes the COVID-19 disease).
  • EN 1276 - bactericidal efficacy in food, industrial, domestic and institutional areas.
  • EN 13697 - bactericidal and fungicidal efficacy on non-porous surfaces in food, industrial, domestic and institutional areas.
  • EN 13623 – bactericidal efficacy against Legionella (the bacteria that causes Legionnaires Disease).
  • EN 1650 - fungicidal efficacy on non-porous surfaces in food, industrial, domestic and institutional areas.

 

Q: How is it to be used?
A: It is sprayed on and wiped off. If the surface to be disinfected looks dirty, first spray and clean off any obviously surface soiling. Then spray the surface again, leave for 2 mins and then wipe it with a clean disposable paper toweling or otherwise a clean damp cloth.

Q: Why spray it on and then leave it for 2 mins?
A: Although the wiping action will break-up and de-activate many germ structures, leaving the cleaner sprayed onto the surface for 2 mins gives the optimum opportunity for the formulation to also kill any bacteria and virus-infected cells.

Q: Is it important to wipe it away?
A: Yes, although the cleaner spray formulation will kill the virus-infected cells and bacteria, these then need clearing away by the wiping action. This is why it is recommended to use disposable paper toweling which should then be disposed of responsibly.

Q: Is it safe to use on plastic surfaces?
A: Yes, but wipe it clean after 5 mins, maximum.

Q: Is it ‘food safe’?
A: It can be used to clean surfaces used for food preparation but direct contact with food and drinks must be avoided.
