The Best Hospital Disinfectant is IV-7 Ultimate Germ Defense
When deciding which hospital disinfectant to use, IV7 Ultimate Germ Defense is the clear choice for more than one reason. I will give you several.
IV-7 is an EPA registered product and is in the lowest toxicity category that they assign. As a result, IV-7 does not require any hazard warnings on the label.
Another huge benefit of IV-7 is that it does not use bleach and alcolhol like most other surface disinfectants. It uses silver dihydrogen citrate or SDC, which is the first new generation, patented antimicrobial to be registered with the U.S. EPA in over thirty years.
As a result of not using those other chemicals, IV7 is non-corrosive, non-flammable, colorless, odorless, has no fumes, and it does not irritate the skin. You can’t say that about those alcohol and bleach based disinfectants.
Perhaps the biggest advantage that IV-7 has over all other surface disinfectants is that in addition to quickly killing germs when it is applied, IV-7 provides an ongoing twenty four hours of germ killing protection.
IV-7 Ultimate Germ Defense kills germs in as fast as 30 seconds while Other surface disinfectants can take up to ten minutes to kill bacteria.
IV-7 is odorless and can be used in a crowded setting like an office or classroom, even
when people are present. Most other disinfectants have irritating fumes and must be used
when nobody is around.
Bacteria do not develop resistance to the active ingredient in IV-7. Other surface
disinfectants can allow bacteria to build up resistance over time.
IV-7 is nonflammable. Other surface disinfectants use alcohol and are flammable.
IV-7 will not cause skin irritation. Other hard surface disinfectants can irritate the
skin and must be rinsed.
