Keeping your customers, staff and students safe and healthy in your business or school is extremely important, especially now. However, you don’t want to use just any cleaning solution to spray and wipe down your surfaces. Having a cleaning solution that disinfects and is better for people is key in ensuring everyone’s health and well-being.
Why You Should Care
Most of us spend the majority of our time indoors working or learning, meaning the quality of the indoor environment is of utmost importance. Harsh chemicals can negatively affect the indoor environment, even causing asthma attacks or irritating our skin and eyes. Beyond that, non-EPA approved disinfectants can contain toxins, which can negatively affect our endocrine system and even cause harm to the environment. Using EPA-approved disinfectants means you will have peace of mind knowing that your customers, staff and students can shop, work and learn without adverse effects to their health. And using green EPA-approved disinfectants means that you can also be kinder to the environment as well. This means that EPA-approved disinfectants are better for the environment and better for you!
What Does EPA-Approved Mean?
The EPA is constantly researching and evaluating chemicals in cleaning solutions to understand if there are any negative effects the chemicals may have on our health or our environment. This research addresses a broad range of potential toxicological effects. Testing and research includes looking at:
- Possible carcinogenic effects
- Toxicity of the chemical
- The possibility that a chemical will cause asthma attacks
- If the chemical causes skin or eye sensitivities
- Endocrine system disruption
- Possible impurities and their effects on people and the environment
Because of all the research and testing, EPA-approved disinfectants are safer for people and the environment. These disinfectants not only clean well but they are less likely to have adverse effects on our health and on the environment.
EPA-Approved Disinfectants for Coronavirus
The EPA continues to review and register commercial antimicrobial solutions and disinfectants to help combat the spread of COVID-19. For more information on these products view the EPA’s list of disinfectants for Coronavirus. They have also worked with the CDC to develop guidance for cleaning and disinfecting public spaces, offices, businesses, schools and even homes.
