Are You Using the Right Sanitizing Agents for Your Homes and Businesses?

In the new normal where COVID-19 is still present, we have to take extra precautions in ensuring that our homes and businesses are safe from the virus, which is why many of us have turned towards sanitizing and disinfection services. Sanitizing and disinfecting not only helps to provide a peace of mind but communicates to your employees, clients and customers that their safety is your priority. With the various measures in place to ensure a clean, safe and virus-free environment,  the question remains – Are you using the right sanitizing agents?

2 key points to determine if the sanitizing agents are right for you:

Effectiveness of the Right Sanitizing Agent

1. Effectivity against the virus

Not all sanitizing or disinfecting agents are effective against the coronavirus. Make sure to check if your sanitizing agents contain the active ingredients (A.I.s) with the working concentrations needed. Also, take note of the contact time needed to ensure effectiveness against the virus. For example, the National Environment Agency (NEA) has recommended that an effective sanitizing agent against coronavirus will be benzalkonium chloride (0.05% working concentration), with a recommended contact time of 10 minutes. This will enable you to sanitize and disinfect more effectively with the appropriate sanitizing agents of the right ingredients and contact time. At Safe Habitat, we use Hygelab Disinfectant which contains the optimized and recommended amount of benzalkonium chloride (0.05% working concentration).

Child-friendly Sanitizing Agent safe for kids

2. Child-friendliness

At Safe Habitat, we understand the need for disinfectants to be child-friendly. Most sanitizing agents in the market may contain toxic substances which are irritant and not child-friendly. Water-based disinfectants are lab-tested to be effective against the coronavirus and are biodegradable, non-toxic and non-irritant. Such disinfectants are child-friendly allowing parents and children related businesses such as tuition centres, daycare centres to utilize such disinfectants with a peace of mind.

As the sanitizing agent is one of the key factors in ensuring a safe habitat for your homes and businesses, be sure to take note of the effectivity against the virus and child-friendliness to ensure you are using the right sanitizing agents.

At Safe Habitat, we understand the concerns of parents and businesses who want to ensure that the sanitizing agents are safe and effective.
