Due to the global pandemic of 2020, the impact of which is still being felt in 2021, we have all been subject to a quick and necessary education in disinfecting and hygiene. Terms such as “contact times” and “EN compliance” are now commonplace with an increased awareness to their importance in relation to cleanliness. Equally, cleaning companies scrambled to optimise their products to ensure their effectiveness in eliminating the SARS‑CoV‑2 strain.

As such, the chemicals market has seen a large influx of disinfectant and antibacterial solutions in a wide range of products. Ready to use, concentrate, aerosols, wipes and more are all different cleaning options which have been brought to the offering for businesses to choose from to help keep their facilities clean. With this inflation comes a vast variation in which all these products are to be used and applied. With some requiring personal protective equipment (PPE) to be worn during application.

But one of the quickest and easiest available on the market are the Oxivir Excel Wipes. They are part of the Oxivir range from Diversey and provide users with an option which covers all bases where cleaning is concerned.

The wipes are non-classified, meaning they are one hundred percent safe to use without the need for PPE. At the time of writing (21st May 2021) they are the only wipes currently available on the UK market that kill all viruses (including SARS-CoV-2 and norovirus) within thirty seconds, both on clean and visibly dirty surfaces. It also eliminates bacteria yeast efficiently too. With it being stated by Diversey that:

“Anyone can safely and quickly clean and disinfect a surface in one pass of the wipe.”

The reason for this is the wipes contain an active ingredient called Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide (AHP). The patented formulation can be safely used on a large variety of surfaces without the need for the area to be prepared, pre-cleaned or treated prior to usage. Equally, the formulation is gentle on surfaces preventing cleaning effects such as wear or discoloration, thus extending equipment life.

One of the key benefits of the wipes is the ubiquitous nature they offer regarding usage. Irrespective of the industry or environment all can use these wipes making them perfect for either distribution amongst cleaning employees, waiting staff or office workers. Additionally, they are also ideal for placement in communal areas for the general public to use to ensure they also feel safe and hygienic too whilst frequenting high traffic venues and establishments.

Another key benefit of the Oxivir Excel Wipes is the fact that they are wipes, making them portable and easy to transfer without the need for additional equipment when performing cleaning duties. As such no instructions are needed nor further purchases required making them a cost-effective cleaning solution for daily maintenance of surfaces.
