We are surrounded by harmful bacteria and microorganisms that cause various diseases. In order to destroy them, we need to apply disinfectants to objects we frequently use as well as spaces we live and work in. Here, you will find a wide selection of detergents and sanitisers to help you keep your environment safe from infection-causing diseases. Whether you are buying for your home, office, school or hospital, you are guaranteed to find products that will effectively kill bacterial viruses and fungi. All products pass through strict microbiological efficacy tests.
Regular household cleaning and disinfection products will effectively eliminate the virus from household surfaces. For cleaning and disinfecting households with suspected or confirmed COVID19, surface virucidal disinfectants, such as 0.05% sodium hypochlorite (NaClO) and products based on ethanol (at least 70%), should be used.
In non-health care settings, sodium hypochlorite (bleach / chlorine) may be used at a recommended concentration of 0.1% or 1,000ppm (1 part of 5% strength household bleach to 49 parts of water). Alcohol at 70-90% can also be used for surface disinfection. Surfaces must be cleaned with water and soap or a detergent first to remove dirt, followed by disinfection. Cleaning should always start from the least soiled (cleanest) area to the most soiled (dirtiest) area in order to not spread the dirty to areas that are less soiled.
High-touch surfaces in these non-health care settings should be identified for priority disinfection such as door and window handles, kitchen and food preparation areas, counter tops, bathroom surfaces, toilets and taps, touchscreen personal devices, personal computer keyboards, and work surfaces.
What protective measures should I take while using disinfectants?
• The disinfectant and its concentration should be carefully selected to avoid damaging surfaces
and to avoid or minimize toxic effects on household members (or users of public spaces).
• Avoid combining disinfectants, such as bleach and ammonia, since mixtures can cause
respiratory irritation and release potentially fatal gases.
• Keep children, pets and other people away during the application of the product until it is dry and
there is no odour.
• Open windows and use fans to ventilate. Step away from odours if they become too strong.
• Disinfectant solutions should always be prepared in well-ventilated areas.
• Wash your hands after using any disinfectant, including surface wipes.
• Keep lids tightly closed when not in use. Spills and accidents are more likely to happen when
containers are open.
• Do not allow children to use disinfectant wipes. Keep cleaning fluids and disinfectants out of the
reach of children and pets.
