Spray Nine Hard at Work!

Does Spray Nine make a specific virucidal claim against the Swine Influenza A (H1N1) virus?

          Not at this time. Spray Nine is effective against Influenza A2 and Influenza A (H3N2) in just 30 seconds as a broad spectrum, hospital-grade disinfectant.  Spray Nine is currently fast at work with an independent testing lab and the U.S. EPA to validate Spray Nine’s effectiveness against the Swine Influenza A (H1N1) virus.

In the meantime, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has issued the following interim guidance on Environmental Management of Pandemic Influenza Virus (including Swine Flu and Avian Flu):

“Cleaning and disinfection can reduce the numbers of viruses present on environmental surfaces, which can help to minimize hand transfer of virus (10). Influenza viruses are enveloped, lipid-containing viruses, and as such are readily sensitive to a wide variety of chemical disinfectants (Figure 1) (11). While historically there has been a clear distinction between pandemic strains of influenza viruses and seasonal influenza viruses based on antigenic specificity, there is no new evidence to suggest that pandemic influenza viruses are biophysically or biochemically different than seasonal influenza virus. Although pandemic influenza viruses may cause severe disease, influenza viruses are among the least resistant microorganisms to chemical disinfection. Therefore, routine cleaning and disinfection strategies used during influenza seasons could be applied for the environmental management of pandemic influenza.”

Additionally, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that hard non-porous surfaces be disinfected with a hard non-porous surface disinfectant on a regular basis to prevent the spread of harmful germs and viruses.  Click the following link to read the CDC’s Guidance on Controlling the Spread of Swine Flu.
