The use of chemicals (wipes, sprays, mists) are variably effective based on the chemical, wet time, and cleaning technique. However, the CDC (BETR* study) has reported that a combination of chemical and UV-C (ultraviolet-C spectrum light) is most effective on a wide variety of pathogens. While UV-C dosing is effective on “wiped” surfaces, the combination with disinfecting chemicals (including Quaternary Ammonium, Hypochlorite, Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide, Phenolics, and Peracetic Acid) yields significantly improved results then either by itself.
