FloraLife Cleaners Approved for Use Against Novel Coronavirus
FloraLife, a division of Smithers-Oasis Company and leader in postharvest care and handling, is offering its FloraLife D.C.C and FloraLife MicroBLOC disinfectants that meet EPA criteria for use against SARS-CoV-2, the novel coronavirus.
The antimicrobial cleaners can be used for general use across a wide range of industries and applications. The line of cleaners can be purchased in North America at FloraLifeCleaners.com.
“No matter what the industry — food processing, transportation, industrial, schools, retail, travel or healthcare — our EPA-registered cleaning products, along with proper cleaning protocols, can be safely used to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus,” said Jim Daly, vice president, FloraLife/Grower Global Operations and Corporate Research, FloraLife. “When compared to bleach, our FloraLife cleaner products have the added advantage of providing residual protection in cases where the cleaner can remain on the surface without rinsing.”
FloraLife D.C.D. and FloraLife MicroBLOC kill and prevent bacterial, microbial growth and viruses on hard, nonporous surfaces. In areas where there is no contact with food, the cleaners can be sprayed or wiped onto the surface that needs to be disinfected and air dried. For areas in contact with food, surfaces can instead be rinsed after application. To determine which surfaces need to be rinsed off, users should follow label instructions.
FloraLife D.C.D. cleaner and disinfectant is available in a 32-ounce and 1-gallon ready-to-use spray bottle and 16-ounce, 1-, 2.5-, 5- and 30-gallon containers of liquid concentrate. FloraLife MicroBLOC cleaner is available in a 32-ounce ready-to-use spray bottle, and 1-, 5- and 30-gallon containers of liquid concentrate.
When compared to bleach, FloraLife cleaner products create a longer lasting, protective layer that keeps on working, unlike bleach, which quickly breaks down or evaporates. The FloraLife products also have a pleasant or neutral scent, in comparison to bleach, which has an overpowering odor.
