FloraLife cleaning products effective against coronavirus

By Jane Hobson

FloraLife, a division of Smithers-Oasis Company, and worldwide leader in postharvest flower care and handling, is offering its FloraLife D.C.D. and FloraLife MicroBLOC disinfectants that meet EPA criteria for use against the novel coronavirus.

The antimicrobial cleaners can be used for cleaning a wide range of surfaces and can be purchased online.

“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. “When compared to bleach, our FloraLife cleaning 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.

When compared to bleach, FloraLife cleaning products create a longer lasting, protective layer that keeps on working, unlike bleach, which quickly breaks down or evaporates. The FloraLife cleaning products also have a pleasant or neutral scent, in comparison to bleach, which has an overpowering odor.

In order to lower the risk of spreading infections of COVID-19, FloraLife cleaning products should be used on hard surfaces that are touched often or by more than one person including food processing surfaces, delivery vehicles, countertops, tabletops, restrooms and bathroom surfaces, walls, airports, ceilings, doors, handles, chairs and more.
