FAQ

WHY: When using a sprayer with most disinfectants, the aerosolization of the product can cause those who have sensitivities to cough. With regards to Rescue™, it has been validated through third party testing to be non-toxic and does not require the use of PPE, therefore your health is not at risk.

SOLUTION: Although spraying Rescue™ is not a health concern, you can switch to a trigger foamer which will eliminate the aerosolization. Foaming also provides better surface coverage and slows evaporation helping to achieve the required contact time.

WHY: Depending on which disinfectant you were using previously, Rescue™ has the ability to remove previous residue build up from other disinfectants (i.e. quats or phenols). This removal causes a non-toxic reaction between Rescue™ and the residue build-up, causing a musty odor.

WHY: This is nothing to be concerned about. The odor occurs from a reaction between the sulphur residue on the surface of the gloves and hydrogen peroxide. The odor does not mean that the glove and Rescue™ are incompatible, nor does it mean gloves cannot be used as acceptable PPE.

SOLUTION: You may choose to switch glove manufacturers for cleaning and disinfection. If not, try rinsing off the residue with clean water prior to disinfection. Although Rescue™ does not require the use of gloves or other PPE, best practices is to always wear gloves to protect yourself from pathogens when cleaning or disinfecting.

WHY: There are surfactants (detergents) used within Rescue™ products in order to provide a One-Step Disinfectant Cleaner. When using Rescue™ these surfactants may leave a soap like residue after mopping the floors.

SOLUTION: After the contact time has been achieved, periodically rinsing the surface with clean water can help reduce the surfactant load, ultimately reducing stickiness.

WHY: This has been caused by the Rescue™ solution becoming contaminated, most likely through incompatible dilutions systems, pumps and spray triggers.

SOLUTION: Only use Virox® approved and recommended equipment/accessories. These have been tested and validated to ensure ease of use and compatibility.

WHY: Whitening is a harmless natural reaction of hydrogen peroxide with our skin. Enzymes on our skin break hydrogen peroxide down into water and oxygen. The water is absorbed by our skin leaving the oxygen to appear as white "staining".

SOLUTION: The whitening (trapped oxygen) will wear away within a short period of time with no ill effects.

WHY: Rescue™ disinfectants are designed first and foremost to disinfect, not to act as streak free window or stainless steel cleaners.

SOLUTION: Streaking can be easily removed by rinsing/wiping with a damp cloth after the disinfection contact time has been achieved.

Ready-To-Use Liquid is specially formulated to be the most convenient - No mixing or measuring required.

Wipes use Ready-To-Use liquid on pre-saturated non-woven, poly-propylene wipe material with a product formulation that is ready to use once opened. They come in a dispensing canister that easily tears each wipe adding to the already convenient Ready-To-Use liquid. Our wipes are also formulated to help aid in the cleaning process by being able to pick up soils on surfaces saving your facility time and money.

Concentrate liquid is the product with the most diversity giving the user the options to dilute at specific ratios based on the type of application they require.

Cleaning is the physical removal of foreign material and organic material. Cleaning physically removes rather than kills microorganisms. It is accomplished with water, detergents, and mechanical action.

Sanitizing lowers the numbers of germs on surfaces or objects to a safe level, as judged by public health standards or requirements. This process works by either cleaning or disinfecting surfaces to lower the risk of spreading infection.

Disinfection is the inactivation of disease-producing microroganisms. Disinfection does not destroy bacterial spores.

Sterilization is the level of reprocessing required when processing critical medical equipment/devices (equipment or devices that enter sterile tissue). Sterilization results in the destruction of all forms of microbial life including bacteria, viruses, spores and fungi.

Not at all. In the United States and Canada, you'll find more than 8,000 registered disinfectant products for sale, and there are several variations between them. Among the six most common chemistries used for disinfection, especially in medical settings, you'll find vast differences in the spectrum of efficacy, concentrations, contact times, label language, and personal protection needed for proper usage. In addition, many disinfectants require you to clean a surface first with a product containing detergents before you can use your chosen disinfectant.
NOT ANYMORE! Historically, this was true. In the past 10-15 years, however, companies have been working to bring safer and more environmentally sustainable disinfectants to market. If you're using an older type of disinfectant product, be sure to provide training on protocols for safe use. Safety Data Sheets (SDS) are your best resource to learn about the toxicity and risks associated with using the product. See Section 2 and Section 11 on the SDS for details. Some products do indeed contain chemicals that are known carcinogens, known respiratory irritants (causing occupational asthma or chemical pneumonia), known skin sensitizers, known to release volatile organic compounds (leading to poor air quality), or known to contain nonylphenol ethoxylates (hormone-mimicking agents that can act as endocrine disruptors in the body).
NEVER! All disinfectants have a contact time that must be followed. The contact time is the amount of the time the surface must remain wet for disinfection to be achieved. Contact times can range anywhere from 30 seconds to 10 minutes, which means you always have to read the product label before using the disinfectant.
Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Store in an area that is: out of direct sunlight and away from heat and ignition sources. Avoid storage at elevated temperatures.

When diluting into a spray bottle, the best practice would be to rinse the bottle out with fresh water and let it air dry before refilling. We recommend to rinse the bottle with water followed by rinsing with AHP. The bottle should be allowed to dry before refilling with diluted solution to ensure proper dilution.

In the case of transferring from a larger to a smaller container there are some key considerations. First, it is important to ensure that the lot number and expiry date of the solution is indicated on the bottle. This is to help ensure that expired product is not being used and that in the case any concerns arise from the use of the product, the product can be traced through the lot number. Secondly, as mentioned above, we recommend that the container the product is being transferred into is rinsed with water, followed by rinsing with AHP and then allowed to air dry before re-filling. This cleaning process ensures that there are no contaminates in the bottle between re-fills. Lastly, it should be noted that bottles should never be topped up with disinfectant but should only be re-filled once all the solution has been used and the bottle has been cleaned.

Cold winter days bring a challenge for the outdoor application of liquid disinfectants due to the fact that most disinfectant products are aqueous and freeze around 0°C. To use liquid disinfectants during winter months when temperatures are below 0°C, an anti-freezing agent is needed to prevent them from freezing under such conditions. The freezing point temperature of Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide® (AHP®) may be reduced by the utilizing propylene glycol in conjunction with water as the diluent. The addition of propylene glycol does not impact efficacy of the 7% AHP Concentrate. Their addition to the formulation in fact improves the antimicrobial property of the disinfectant formulations (1-5).

(USA) Nonrefillable container. Do not reuse or refill. Wrap empty container and put in trash, or offer for recycling if available.

(Canada) Plastic bottles and containers that bear the 1 or 2 plastic resin codes, also called SPI codes, can be recycled. (SPI stands for Society of the Plastics Industry). Some local recycling programs also accept plastic products with resin codes 3-7 (check with local waste haulers for community-specific information). Most plastic beverage containers with resin codes 3-7 can be returned to recycling centers for California Refund Value just check the label for CRV, CA Cash Refund, or similar wording to determine if you are eligible for a refund. Our AHP product containers all carry a number 2 at the bottom of the bottle so there should be no problem. The empty AHP containers should be rinsed out 3 times and then recycled based on your municipal, provincial, and federal regulations.

Ready-To-Use liquid products can be poured down the drain with running water and leaving the water running for an extra 30 seconds.

To dispose of the RTU Wipes we recommend squeezing out the remaining liquid in the wipes down the drain with running water, then the dehydrated wipes may be recycled.

Concentrate products must first be diluted, then can be poured down the drain with running water, leaving the water running for an extra 30 seconds.
