FAQs

Can we say using BioShield will protect people from getting sick?2020-06-24T14:26:30+00:00

No, by EPA regulations you cannot make health claims on products designed to sanitize or disinfect.

What removes BioShield?2020-06-24T14:26:42+00:00

Strong acid or caustic cleaners and/or Isopropyl combined with scrubbing.

Are there surfaces we don’t want to get BioShield on?2020-06-24T14:26:57+00:00

Yes, Avoid using on touchscreens. It may inhibit sensitivity.

Why is BioShield classified as a pesticide?2020-06-24T14:27:06+00:00

Sanitizers and disinfectants are classified as pesticides by FIFRA and are required to be EPA approved.

Do I need a pesticide license to apply at my business?2020-06-24T14:27:16+00:00

No pesticide license is required as these are considered “general use”.

Can BioShield be sprayed on food?2020-06-24T14:27:26+00:00

No, it is approved for application to any surface food may contact but not food.

Is BioShield safe for people to be around?2020-06-24T14:27:36+00:00

 Yes, When used correctly BioShield is safe, non-toxic and environmentally friendly. 

Does everyone have to leave the building during application?2020-06-24T14:28:55+00:00

No, just the immediate area/room that is being treated.

How long does it take to dry?2020-06-24T14:29:02+00:00

Depending on how wet the application is, 5-10 minutes is a safe bet.  We allow an extra 10 minutes (20-minutes total) before entering treated area just to be sure.

How is this product different?2020-06-24T14:29:07+00:00

Standard antimicrobials kill by way of poisoning the organism upon contact for a certain period of time (dwell time).  Our protectants kill upon application and in addition,  provide long-term benefits by creating a covalent bond to the surface, making the surface anti-microbial.

What is ISO Certified?2020-06-24T14:29:12+00:00

Certified by International Organization for Standardization.     The International Organization for Standardization is an independent, non-governmental organization, the members of which are the standards organizations of the 164 member countries.  BioShield is manufactured by an ISO 9001:2015 Certified Company.

Is it Safe?2020-06-24T14:29:17+00:00

Used as directed, BioShield is safe on all surfaces. Once dry, it is safe for food, children and pets.   BioShield creates a covalent bond to the surface that fights microbial growth.  It is odorless and has been in use for many years in the garment business and extensive testing shows a safe history.

BioShield is EPA registered and approved for use on Food Contact surfaces.

How is BioShield applied?2020-06-24T14:29:24+00:00

Electrostatic sprayers are used for most applications as it insures 360 degrees of coverage.

Does this kill Covid-19?2020-07-16T19:30:24+00:00

No products exist that can make that claim due to the fact that the virus has not been around long enough to test. It can take a year or longer before products get approved by the regulatory agencies.

What is the appropriate cleaning and sanitizing protocol?2020-07-16T19:31:41+00:00

Step 1: Clean with a solvent to remove dirt, grime and oils.
Step 2: Disinfect with a high quality viricidal sanitizer.
Step 3: Protect with BioShield or Proshield every 90 days.

What Is Electrostatic Application and How Does It Work?2020-08-03T14:38:08+00:00

When it comes to cleaning surfaces and objects, traditional dry and wet dusting tends to be the first methods that come to mind. While these cleaning techniques are tried and true, they do little more than spread filth around, unless the rags used are washed regularly. Dry dusting kicks up resting particles, redistributing them into the air and onto other surfaces. Wet dusting can involve harmful cleaning chemicals and make it hard to reach certain spots or objects

What Is Electrostatic Disinfection?2020-08-03T14:38:15+00:00

Electrostatic spray surface cleaning is the process of spraying an electrostatically charged mist onto surfaces and objects. Electrostatic spray uses cleaning and disinfecting solutions combined with air and atomized by an electrode inside the sprayer. Subsequently, the spray contains positively charged particles that are able to aggressively adhere to surfaces and objects. Because the particles in the spray are positively charged, they cling to and coat any surface they’re aimed at.

For awkwardly shaped objects or hard to reach places, cleaning staff only have to point and spray; the nature of the mist allows it to coat surfaces evenly, and envelope objects—even if the mist is only sprayed from one side.  

How Does Electrostatic Disinfection Work?2020-08-03T14:38:20+00:00

Electrostatic spray is electrically charged, allowing the appropriate cleaners, sanitizers, mold preventatives and disinfectants to wrap around and evenly coat all types of surfaces for a more complete clean. As the chemical exits the electrostatic sprayer, it’s given a positive electrical charge. The droplets then become attracted to all negative surfaces, covering the visible area, underside and backside, with the sanitizing agent. Surfaces that are already covered will repel the spray, making the method extremely efficient.

The main features and benefits of electrostatic spray disinfection include1:

  • Reduces the time it takes to cover and disinfect all surfaces and hard-to-reach places by 50% compared to conventional methods
  • Improves infection control.
  • Applies chemicals in a more efficient, controlled manner, eliminating the dangers of overuse

For desktops, floors and walls that need to be absolutely spotless, electrostatic spray cleaning is the best option. The same goes for equipment and hard to reach places; if a piece of equipment is heavily trafficked, electrostatic spray cleaning in the most comprehensive way to remove germs and dirt.
