Is Sterizen® Sanitising Solution effective against COVID-19?

Posted by Sterizen Team on

Sterizen® Sanitising Solution is a professional multi-surface, food-safe, disinfectant cleaner with germicidal properties. This means it’s effective against a broad spectrum of bacteria and viruses including MRSA, E-Coli, Listeria, Salmonella, and coronaviruses.

Coronavirus is the name of a family of viruses that includes COVID-19, as well as the common cold. The known sources of transmission are through respiratory (breathing in) and contact with the virus (touching contaminated surfaces).

As with the common cold, the structure of the COVID-19 virus makes it ‘fragile’ and therefore susceptible to cleaning with disinfectant chemicals. This is different to other known viruses, such as rotavirus and norovirus, which are more ‘robust’ and not so quickly deactivated.

Sterizen® is from a family of disinfectant chemicals called Quats (quaternary ammonium compounds). It’s ideal for cleaning and disinfecting everyday common touchpoints such as surfaces, door handles, vehicle interiors, control panels, touch screens, and appliance exteriors.
