WALTERBORO, SC – Floralife, a division of Smithers-Oasis Company, announced that its FloraLife D.C.D. and FloraLife MicroBLOC disinfectant meet the US Environmental Protection Agency’s standards for cleaners effective in killing SARS-CoV-2, the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). 

The antibacterial cleaners can be used to 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 and wiped onto surfaces and allowed to air-dry. On surfaces that come in contact with food, surfaces can be rinsed after application.  

The cleaners can be used on surfaces including food processing surfaces, desktops, delivery vehicles, countertops and tabletops, restrooms and bathroom surfaces, waiting areas, shelves, benches, warehouse floors and walls and, packing areas and more. The cleaners also work to quickly break down and evaporate, leaving surfaces dry and with a light scent. 

“No matter what the industry—food processing, transportation, industrial, schools, retail, travel or healthcare—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 of grower global operations and corporate research at FloraLife. “When compared to bleach, our FloraLife® Cleaner Products have the added advantage of providing residual protection in cases where the cleaner can remain on the surface without rinsing.”
