—Frequently Asked Questions
How does MicrobeCare® work?
The patented protection of MicrobeCare® provides immediate and reactive protection against microbes. When microbes come into contact with a product protected with built-in MicrobeCare® technology, that product destroys the cell wall of the microbes, disrupting the growth process and making it unable to reproduce, effectively destroying the organism.
What microorganisms does MicrobeCare® protect against?
MicrobeCare® coatings are effective against most bacteria, yeasts, mildew and fungi, including stain, odor and disease-causing microorganisms.
Do MicrobeCare® products need to be cleaned?
MicrobeCare® is not a replacement for routine cleaning; it will, however, make cleanings far more efficient, and hundreds if not thousands of times more effective.
How safe are MicrobeCare® products?
Consumer safety is our top concern. All of our products are guaranteed non-toxic, and have obtained United States EPA and FDA approval. Risk assessments by independent scientific bodies constantly reconfirm the safety of our antimicrobial additives.
How long does MicrobeCare® protection last?
Due to the patented technology that makes MicrobeCare® unique, the formula is able to become a permanent part of your product surface, so it will not wear or wash off. MicrobeCare® protection is guaranteed to function throughout the average lifetime of your product, and more often than not will extend said lifetime by eliminating bacteria known to corrode or degrade polymer surface material.
Can disinfectant be used on a surface treated with MicrobeCare®?
Yes, most disinfectants have been approved for use on surfaces treated with MicrobeCare®. Click here for a list of approved disinfectants
