As the demand for disinfection has sharply increased, many companies have emerged to offer service and make claims about the protection they can offer. So what should you believe? Rentokil's mythbusting experts answer some of the most common questions we've received.
No. In the U.S., only products found on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) List N have been approved as disinfectants for use against SARS-CoV-2. In Canada, the same holds true, with approvals being issued by the Natural and Non-prescription Health Products Directorate (NNHPD).
There are currently no products available in the United States or Canada that will provide extended control or protection against the novel coronavirus on hard surfaces.
All current EPA-approved and NNHPD-authorized disinfectant products that are effective against SARS-CoV-2 will kill the virus that is present during treatment. The surface can be re-contaminated as soon as the product has dried.
Enclosed spaces are at high-risk for the spread of coronavirus – and that includes the vehicles in your school's fleet.
School busses, maintenance trucks, motorized carts, and administrative cars have dozens of high-touch surfaces that can spread coronavirus, all of which need to be thoroughly disinfected regularly to reduce risk.
