Have you ever been concerned about the ingredient lists on typical commercial cleaning products? Us too.

While standard cleaners like bleach and ammonia might get the job done, using them may ultimately hurt your health and the environment. The harmful chemicals present in many standard cleaners can cause various health problems, including permanent skin and lung damage.
Thankfully, there are safer cleaning solutions on the market. SDVO, for instance, is a non-corrosive, non-irritating alternative to residential and commercial cleaning products. This 7-in-1 cleaner relies on the natural power of chlorine dioxide and breaks down into simple salt.

Why choose SDVO?

We love SDVO because it’s gentle on skin, but tough on germs. The EPA ranks SDVO as Category IV (Very Low Toxicity) in all graded areas, including oral, dermal, inhalation, eye and skin irritation. It requires no special handling and contains no harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs), yet thoroughly disinfects all treated surfaces.

Here are some more reasons you’ll want to choose SDVO as your next multipurpose cleaning and disinfecting solution.

School, Hospital, Nursing Home Surface Disinfectant

1. It’s an EPA-registered hospital disinfectant.

SDVO kills 99.999% of a broad spectrum of bacteria and viruses while preventing the growth of drug-resistant “superbugs.” Though harsh on blood and other bodily fluid stains, it’s gentle on the skin and does not require gloves or special handling.

5. It eliminates allergens.

SDVO eliminates allergens caused by pet dander, dust mites and cockroaches. It can be used on any surface an animal comes into contact with, including pet bedding.

2. There’s no rinse required.

SDVO is safe to use on food contact surfaces and does not require rinsing. It won’t alter the taste of your food, but it will kill bacteria your food might carry, like E.coli, Salmonella and Listeria, within seconds.

6. It kills and prevents biofilm.

SDVO kills and prevents the production of biofilm, which are formed by bacteria, fungi and protists and can grow on various surfaces.

3. It eliminates odors.

SDVO doesn’t mask odors with special masking agents or fragrances — it eliminates them at the molecular level. This includes malodors from smoke, animals, mold, trash, septic systems, stale cooking and more. It also works to neutralize urine and fecal odors.

7. You can use it as a carpet and soft surface sanitizer.

With 5:1 dilution, SDVO is safe to use on carpets and other soft surfaces like upholstery, curtains and auto interiors.

4. It kills mold and mildew.

Not only does SDVO kill spores and mildew at their roots, it prevents them with up to seven months of residual effects and is safe on a wide range of hard and soft surfaces.

8. It’s safe for HVAC systems.

SDVO can be used for antimicrobial control on HVAC and air ducts, targeting bacteria, mold, mildew and other fungi. This eliminates contamination and improves air quality.

Frequently asked questions about SDVO

With so many disinfectants and mold removers on the market, why should I choose SDVO?

Most disinfectants and mold removers on the market are extremely toxic, but SDVO is an effective product that does not come with alarming safety warnings and precautions. While other competitors and manufacturers have attempted to copy and produce a form of stabilized chlorine dioxide similar to SDVO, our revolutionary formula is unequaled. Chlorine dioxide has been used during the Anthrax attacks, in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, to purify drinking water, and to kill MRSA in schools and hospitals.

Where can I use SDVO?

SDVO is an excellent disinfectant to use around the house, such as in musty basements, bathrooms and kitchens, HVAC systems and carpets. It’s also a great mold inhibitor on hard non-porous surfaces and soft surfaces. Aside from homes, here are some other recommended locations to use SDVO:

Common uses for SDVO include:

  • Personal and commercial vehicles
  • Schools and daycares
  • Gyms (including locker rooms and sports gear)
  • Hospitals and nursing homes
  • Ambulances
  • Laundry rooms
  • Veterinary clinics
  • Laboratories
  • Restaurants
  • Boats and ships
  • Food processing facilities 
  • Farms and animal pens
  • Refrigerated storage units
  • Airplanes
  • Trains 
  • Commercial greenhouses, floral shops and plant growing facilities

What is the difference between a cleaner and a disinfectant?

Cleaners are not registered with the EPA and cannot make public health claims on their label, such as killing germs or having any anti-microbial action, but disinfectants are.

Can I clean and disinfect at the same time?

Disinfectants need to contact the area to disinfect and cannot do this effectively with a barrier of dirt or grime in the way. Once the dirt has been wiped away, the disinfectant can get to work. Under lightly soiled conditions, however, you can clean and disinfect in the same step with just SDVO. Heavily soiled areas may require a pre-cleaning step before you use SDVO.

What does “no rinse required” mean?

“No rinse required on food contact surfaces” is a safety rating given by NSF International. SDVO is rated “no rise required on food contact surfaces” category D2, meaning SDVO is approved to use in commercial or residential kitchens to control bacteria, viruses and mold without the need to wash/rinse the area with water after SDVO is applied.

What are the advantages of using sprayers and foggers to disperse SDVO?

Using a fogger or electrostatic sprayer is the quickest way to disinfect larger areas like hospital rooms, basements or even school gyms. These create mists to treat objects, walls, floors, and ceilings, dramatically cutting the time to disinfect such areas. Because it is non-corrosive, SDVO is one of the few disinfectants deemed safe to be dispersed in this manner.
