EPA-Approved Disinfectants
January 11, 2021
nice guys : )

You may have heard through the grapevine that your disinfectant isn’t effective when it comes to the coronavirus. The truth is that some cleaning products weren’t made to target germs of this day and age. Let’s go over what to look for on your products and what you can do to make sure you’re keeping employees and clients safe.

Search for the EPA Reg. No.

The EPA is the agency that regulates germ-killing products. When a product is EPA-approved, it means it has gone through rigorous testing to make sure it kills germs. To double check that this number is verified, type it into EPA’s List N Tool.

Read the directions carefully

If you have an N-List product, one of the top reasons why it isn’t disinfecting properly is misapplication. Many disinfectants require a user to spray and then wait a set time before wiping.

Report any fraudulent products

If you find a product with an EPA-approved stamp but cannot find it on the EPA’s List N Tool, make sure to take the time to report it.
