Vital Oxide is EPA and Health Canada registered hospital disinfectant cleaner, mold killer, and odor eliminator. Vital Oxide’s formula is non-irritating to the skin, non-corrosive to most treated articles, and NSF certified (no rinse required) for food contact surfaces.Learn More
Your gateway to clinically clean
Removing mold and bacteria can involve strong chemicals that may trigger health problems. Now there’s an ecologically sound alternative. Vital Oxide is used against the Ebola virus according to recent Center of Disease Control and Prevention guidelines.
Vital Oxide is colourless, odourless – so mild you can wash your hands in it, will not harm hard or soft surfaces, or colourfast fabrics. Use it on shower curtains, under sinks, in basements and crawl spaces – anywhere mold and bacteria are found.
Proven effective against Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Norovirus, Legionella pneumophilia, E. coli and the H1N1 virus (Swine Flu) in testing conducted by certified independent laboratories under GLP conditions and approved by the U.S. EPA. Vital Oxide is a broad-spectrum antimicrobial that performs against bacteria, yeasts, viruses, fungi, spores, molds, mildews, and other microbes.
How It Works
Vital Oxide kills microbes by chemically altering certain amino acids that contain sulfur. The amino acids are important building blocks in the proteins that help to form cell walls. When these proteins are destroyed, the cell wall ruptures and the organism dies. Vital Oxide is effective on both enveloped and non-enveloped viruses as well as gram positive and gram negative bacteria.
In the chemical reaction, Vital Oxide takes on an electron from the amino acid and reverts back to a chlorite ion. The amino acid gives up an electron, which causes oxidation. Unlike other products containing chloride dioxide, our formula has been stabilized to be effective for up to two years.
Know the difference between cleaning, disinfecting, and sanitizing
Cleaning removes germs, dirt, and impurities from surfaces or objects. Cleaning works by using soap (or detergent) and water to physically remove germs from surfaces. This process does not necessarily kill germs, but by removing them, it lowers their numbers and the risk of spreading infection. The problem, however, is the risk of cross-contamination. The mopping solution and the cleaning tools could be spreading disease in the absence of a disinfectant.
Sanitizing lowers the number of germs. Sanitizing is meant to reduce, the occurrence and growth of bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Sanitizing is better than cleaning alone but the reduction of pathogen populations on environmental surfaces is exponentially better when you disinfect.
Disinfecting kills germs on surfaces or objects. All Disinfectants in Canada need to be registered by Health Canada and have a Health Canada DIN#. There are 3 types of disinfectants: limited, general, and hospital grade.
Disinfect surfaces and objects that are touched often
Cleaning procedures should include daily disinfection of surfaces and objects that are touched often, such as desks, countertops, doorknobs, railings, computer keyboards, faucet handles, toilets, phones, and light switches. To allow for greater coverage in less time it is best to apply the disinfectant by fogging or misting.
(*Note: not all disinfectants are safe to be aerosolized – Vital Oxide is authorized for use in a sprayer/fogger)
Why Should I Use A Sprayer/Fogger To Apply Vital Oxide?
While there are many ways to apply Vital Oxide such as using a sponge or cloth or mop or full immersion in solution, one of the most popular methods of application is using a sprayer/fogger.
Benefits of spraying/fogging include:
✓ Greater Coverage
✓ Time savings
✓ Cost Savings
✓ Uses less product
✓ Reduces Cross-Contamination
