Regarding Efficacy and Use of PreventX 24/7 in Prevention of Corona Virus COVID-19 on Textile and Hard Surfaces
The CoronaVirus has been making headlines in both the national and international news, and JennsCo has been fielding calls regarding PreventX 24/7 and its use to protect surfaces in stricken areas. The first and foremost thing to remember about PreventX 24/7 is that by treating a surface, we are in no way making a health claim that someone will not get Corona, or that we can cure anybody from Corona by treating their surroundings. It is also important to remember that PreventX 24/7 contains an EPA registered bacteriostatic, meaning that it protects surfaces from contamination after it has been applied, and not as a biocidal agent that kills viruses on contact.
Most companies registering biostatic agents never consider viruses in their application process, as viruses are not biologically active on a surface for long periods, usually minutes to hours; and they do not grow on their own, they need a host cell to replicate. This being said, Silane Quaternary Ammonium Chlorides like PreventX 24/7 have been shown to be both biocidal to viruses on contact, and biostatic to viruses when applied to a surface first and then contaminated with a viral loading.
There are a few facts that will help in the information process when discussing PreventX 24/7 to potential clients that are concerned about Corona COVID-19.
First, there is no product in the United States that is registered with the EPA as being effective on Corona Virus. The EPA and CDC are basing efficacy against COVID-19 by stating that a product should be able to kill the Corona virus if it is effective against enveloped viruses. They also go a step further by saying that a product that is effective against non-enveloped viruses is preferred, as the non-enveloped viruses are harder to kill than enveloped viruses. PreventX 24/7 has been shown to be effective against both enveloped and non-enveloped viruses.
Second, bleach has been the go to product for disinfecting hard, non porous surfaces. The CDC in the United States has recommended the use of bleach because it is effective on both enveloped and nonenveloped viruses and it is readily available and inexpensive. The downsides of bleach are that it is corrosive on certain surfaces, it will discolor some surfaces, its lifespan in concentrate deteriorates over time and when mixed in a ready to use format its lifespan is much shorter. The main downside of course in relation to our product is that bleach is only effective on a surface as a biocidal agent for a matter of a few seconds. Then it loses its power to disinfect. It has no residual properties. The benefit of our PreventX 24/7 product is that when used after a bleach application, (or after other approved disinfectants), the surface will stay protected from microbes,
What is a Nano-Barrier and Why You Need It.
DOC Disinfectant™ Nano-Barrier is a non-toxic antimicrobial technology that uses defensive antimicrobial formulas to establish a non-receptive layer on both porous and nonporous surfaces. This attracts and physically blocks microbes from growing on objects in a given space, keeping treated areas safe. This surface protectant coating is guaranteed to last for a minimum of 30 days for high touch-point surfaces and up to 90 days on no-to-low touch-point surfaces.
3-Step Approach to Proper Cleaning, Sanitizing & Protection
STEP 1: CLEAN
DOC Disinfectant Germicidal Sanitizing Solution™ (registered on the EPA List for Disinfectants for Use Against SARS-CoV-2) is sprayed on all areas, especially high touch-point surfaces—including bars, countertops, door knobs, tables and chairs, etc.
STEP 2: COAT
DOC Disinfectant™ Nano-Barrier is sprayed on all high touch-point surfaces. DOC Disinfectant™ Nano-Barrier is a non-toxic antimicrobial technology that uses defensive antimicrobial formulas to establish a non-receptive layer on both porous and nonporous surfaces. This attracts and physically blocks microbes from growing on objects in a given space, keeping treated areas safe. This surface protectant coating is guaranteed to last for a minimum of 30 days for high touch-point surfaces and up to 90 days on no-to-low touch-point surfaces.
STEP 3: COMPLETE
Complete the sanitizing service by back-wiping high touch-point surfaces to ensure even coverage.
DISINFECTION OPERATION COMPLETE
After the job is complete, each business can proudly apply the “DOC Disinfectant™ Seal of Approval” by the handle of every entry door to the facility—giving employees and customers peace-of-mind to Enter with Confidence™.
