Frequently Asked Questions

Is Zoono Sufficient in Killing Harmful Bacteria When Applied To Hands And Surfaces?

Yes. Scientific studies support the superior longevity benefits of Zoono products as part of a good hygiene practice in the fight against threat of germs which cause infection.

How Long Is Zoono Effective For?

Zoono GermFree24 Hand Sanitiser is effective at killing pathogens for up to 24 hours. The Zoono  Microbe Shield Surface antimicrobial has been subjected to research tests in multiple commercial and industry applications and remained effective, killing pathogens for up to 30 days.

Zoono antimicrobial products are complimentary to and should be used alongside regular hand washing and surface cleaning routines.

How Does the Zoono Antimicrobial Work?

Zoono forms an antibacterial shield that bonds to skin and surfaces, providing a residual baseline antibacterial layer which is designed to help support routine cleaning and provide enhanced protection between cleaning cycles. It is important that routine cleaning continues to ensure the nano-scale antimicrobial coating remains optimally active.

Once dry, Zoono resembles a layer of microscopic pins that attract, pierce and kill pathogens – the same principle as a pin popping a balloon. And in the same manner that the burst balloon cannot be reformed, neither can the pathogens.

What is the Difference Between A Disinfectant And An Antimicrobial Protectant

Most disinfectants and hand sanitisers are only effective when wet. Touching surfaces with dry hands can reacquire contamination. Zoono is an antimicrobial protectant for surfaces and hands and is effective when dry and maintains protection between hand washing opportunities and the regular cleaning of surfaces.

Does Zoono Protect against Coronavirus?

ZOONO has passed the EN14476 Test standard for Enveloped Viruses within which the Coronavirus species is included.

How Many Pumps of Germfree24 Hand Sanitiser Should I Use?

Directions for use:

Apply 3ml of product to clean hands and cover all surfaces of the hands. We refer you to the WHO hand hygiene technique demonstrated within the Surewash Smartphone APP. Rub hands for 30 seconds, until dry. Apply product as required. We recommend Germfree24 is used in conjunction with routine hand hygiene procedures.

How Many Sprays of Zoono Microbe Shield Surface Sanitiser Should I Use?

Directions for use:

Clean and dry the surface prior to application. Spray entire surface or spray a microfibre cloth and apply evenly, ensure it is completely covered. Leave to dry for at least 5 minutes (bacteria, enveloped viruses) or 15 minutes (yeast). reapply as required to maintain a wet surface for the required contact time.

We recommend ZOONO® Microbe Shields is used in conjunction with routine cleaning procedures. Microfibre cleaning cloths are recommended. The antimicrobial will remain active and not affected by routine cleaning procedures.

Use Zoono products safely. Always read the labels.
