The importance of choosing the right product for the Coronavirus disinfection
The disinfection Disinfection destroys all species of pathogenic micro-organisms present in an environment or surface (not bacterial spores) The most suitable disinfectant agent will be chosen according to the resistance of the micro-organism(s) to be destroyed and taking into account environmental factors and the nature of the substrate hosting them
When talking about environmental disinfection, there are three important aspects that cannot be overlooked if we want to reach the required result. If one of these three aspects is weak, the environmental disinfection won’t be effective.
Coronavirus disinfection: Disinfectants and sanitizers
First of all it’s very important to choose the right disinfectant virucidal and following aspects must be considered:
- Efficacy: the disinfectant must have a proven efficacy against the pathogen and must be able to reduce the viral load so as to keep the risk within acceptable levels
- Harmlessness: the sanitiser must be harmless to people/things present and preferably free of hazards such as flammability
- Objects: The materials and objects in the environment to be disinfected should be preserved as much as possible
- Interaction with the treated substrate: the disinfectant must remain effective in contact with the substrate to be treated
- Easy to use: The disinfectant must be easy to use (handle, dilute, store, transport)
Machines and Systems for Coronavirus disinfection:
Devices for disinfection are grouped into two categories: PPE and Machinery. Personal protective equipment must be chosen to ensure maximum protection with minimum discomfort, and first of all they must be used correctly.
Disinfectant application methods include the following categories, in descending order of efficiency:
- Misting: It allows a very fine mist to ensure optimal distribution without waste
- aerosols and ULVs
- spraying and foaming
It is evident that the choice of a good machine for sanitising rooms and air conditioners is equally important.
Automated and time-controlled misting systems for disinfectant dispensing are very useful in the coronavirus emergency.
Pressure systems, for example, allow disinfection to be managed by machines that deliver the disinfectant according to the pulses of an electronic control unit.
These methods are particularly advantageous as they allow automatic service management through the use of timers and pressure regulators.
This results guarantees a correct dosage of disinfectants and more accurate and precise application.

Coronavirus disinfection: How the virus spreads in environments
“The principal mode by which people are infected with SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) is through exposure to respiratory fluids carrying infectious virus. Exposure occurs in three principal ways: (1) inhalation of very fine respiratory droplets and aerosol particles, (2) deposition of respiratory droplets and particles on exposed mucous membranes in the mouth, nose, or eye by direct splashes and sprays, and (3) touching mucous membranes with hands that have been soiled either directly by virus-containing respiratory fluids or indirectly by touching surfaces with virus on them.”
According to recent studies, the coronavirus can resist in the air under certain conditions for up to three hours and on inanimate surfaces for up to 72 hours. For this reason is very important to use a good disinfectant for environments and/or a sanitizer for air conditioning systems.
The product we choose must be able to inactivate the virus. It is therefore essential to the use only chemical which are approved. Otherwise there will be the risk they can be totally ineffective or even harmful!
Denaturation or inactivation of virus through disinfectants
The action of the disinfectant against Coronavirus consists in the denaturation of protein coatings, which is the way through which the virus penetrates our cells. As a result, the RNA is no longer able to replicate and the infection stops.
CloreZone: Water soluble disinfectant product. It releases hypochlorous acid with bactericidal and virucidal function for surfaces and instruments.
Use: prepare the solution to be used by dissolving the tablets in water. The optimal concentration of use is one tablet in 3 liters of water which corresponds to 250 ppm of free chlorine. Ensure a contact of at least 5 minutes between the CloreZone solution obtained and the surfaces to be treated
Warnings: Do not mix with other products. Avoid contact with acids. Don’t breath, protect eyes, read instructions and SDS
PureFog: It is a sanitizer in water solution ready to be mist based on sodium hypochlorite. Kills viruses and bacteria by
denaturing protein membranes. Dermatologically tested
