Disinfection Reminders:

  • Disinfectants must be EPA-registered and labeled as bactericidal, virucidal and fungicidal. No product will be labeled for COVID-19 yet, but many will have human coronavirus efficacy either on their label or available on their websites. The EPA has approved any product that has tested as effective against human coronavirus, to make a claim for COVID-19 at this time
  • Disinfection only works on a clean item, so cleaning before disinfecting is always the first step. Methods to clean include soap/water, chemical cleaning wipes
  • Contact time listed on the label must be observed for disinfectants to work. The contact time refers to how long the surface must stay visibly wet with the disinfectant to inactivate or destroy all the pathogens listed on the label. Typical contact time for immersion/sprays is 10 minutes, for wipes is 2-4 minutes
  • Disinfectant for immersion must be made fresh daily and replaced if it becomes contaminated sooner. For example, hair/debris floating in solution or a cloudy solution
  • Disinfection is for hard, non-porous surfaces, typically things made of glass, metal and plastic or referred to as synthetic materials
