The COVID-19 outbreak has posed significant challenges to the business world. As we continue to adapt to this new reality, the adoption and maintenance of a robust hygiene process is vital in ensuring the safety of both employees and customers.
Many companies have implemented a range of measures to try and achieve this, including increasing the frequency of cleaning and disinfection in the workplace, training employees on personal and site hygiene, and intensifying the cleaning and disinfection of areas such as toilets, canteens and food preparation areas, that are more conducive to pathogens.
The WHO and UK government recommend a concentration of 1,000 ppm of free available chlorine (FAC) for disinfection against COVID-19. FAC is the active ingredient in our cleaning and disinfectant solution, eloclear™, at a concentration of 1,800-2,100 ppm.
Following recent testing conducted by an independent UKAS accredited laboratory, eloclear™ demonstrated full virucidal activity against a range of enveloped viruses, including SARS-CoV2, at 1,000 and 2,000 ppm, with a 30 second contact time.
eloclear™ has passed all three EN 14476:2013 standardised tests for chemical disinfectants and antiseptics, in addition to a range of antimicrobial efficacy tests in clean and dirty conditions, proving it also disinfects bacteria, fungi, yeast and mould.
