What to look for in a disinfectant

Disinfectants are critical in preventing the spread of harmful bacteria, viruses and other pathogens, making them a fundamental part of protecting the health and well-being of individuals and their families.

Several studies have shown germs can survive on frequently touched objects for hours, and in some cases, days, weeks, and months.

Along with proper handwashing as per CDC guidelines, disinfectants are proven effective in preventing the spread of germs from these frequently touched surfaces.

Annually, exclusive of COVID-19, approximately 2 million patients suffer with healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) in the USA, and nearly 90,000 are estimated to die.
