NORTON, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ICP Environmental Restoration Group (ICP ERG), a leading supplier of professional abatement and remediation products to address environmental, safety, and health hazards, supplies a field-tested and experience-proven disinfectant confirmed effective against Coronavirus in real-world situations — Fiberlock’s Shockwave concentrate.
For a product like Fiberlock Shockwave to be EPA-registered as a disinfectant, it must pass efficacy testing for each given virus or microorganism that it claims against. Often an organic soil load is added to create a more challenging test because the organic material on surfaces reduces the efficacy of a disinfectant. The industry standard is a 5% organic soil load, which simulates slightly “dirty” conditions. Put another way, traditionally, disinfectants are tested against a simulation of a nearly clean surface.
ICP’s Fiberlock Shockwave has the only formulation in the environmental remediation industry that was tested—and EPA-registered—against the human coronavirus at a much higher, more challenging, but real-world scenario: 98% soil load—nearly 20 times higher than the industry standard. No other disinfectant in remediation, infection control or other applications can emulate such performance, backed by 20 years of proven success.
Coronavirus can live on a surface for hours, and possibly up to an entire day, depending on temperature and humidity, but it can be controlled with basic cleaning and disinfecting techniques. Special attention should be paid to common “hot spot” or high-touch points like door handles, faucets, water fountain knobs, or even toys that are used by multiple children throughout the day.
Recent strains of Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) have spread rapidly from an origin point in Wuhan, China. Confirmed cases have been identified in North America, including in the United States. The virus can spread before the patient shows symptoms. Symptoms may include some or all of the following:
- Mild to severe respiratory illness.
- Fever or feeling feverish/chills.
- Sore throat.
- Shortness of breath.
