FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Is Sterall effective against viruses and bacteria?
Sterall is highly effective against known and emerging viruses and pathogens. Its key ingredient, Hypochlorous acid has been tested and proven to be not only safe but high effective disinfectant against viruses, pathogen, bacteria and fungi. Hypochlorous acid is FDA, EPA and WHO approved in various industries and applications- including disinfecting for Covid-19
What is Sterall made from?
Sterall is a Hypochlorous acid solution and is kept as natural as possible with no unnecessary additives. Hypochlorous acid has been proven to be more effective against viruses and bacteria than alcohol-based products and is safe to use on humans, pets and in a multitude of applications. The Hypochlorous acid solution in Sterall is part of the Chlorite family which has been recommended by WHO and the South Africa government as being effective against emerging viruses.
How does Sterall work?
The Hypochlorous acid solution in Sterall works by using the chlorite in the solution as the disinfectant. The chemical compound of Hypochlorous acid is HoCl, the “Cl” being the chlorine in the solution. Through a process of electrolyse the chlorine in the solution changes from active to available and free. Chlorites/ Chlorines have been recommended by WHO to disinfect contaminated areas and Hypochlorous acid is the safest Chlorite/ Chlorine in its class.
The Chlorine breaks down the virus’s fragile outer lipid envelope, but drawing electrons from the atoms, which render the virus more susceptible to the chlorine disinfectant and neutralises the Hypochlorous acid at the same time. Hypochlorous acid is even effective on less susceptible viruses such as Rotavirus and Nova virus
Why use Sterall rather than alcohol-based sanitizer?
Sterall contains a Hypochlorous acid solution which despite its name is a highly effective disinfectant yet safe enough to use on food and babies. It been used for hundreds of years in the medical field. Sterall unlike alcohol-based products is easy on the skin and eyes, aids in healing and is non-toxic and eco-friendly. Sterall contain no unnecessary additives to keep it as natural as possible
Does Sterall fall within the disinfecting regulations the government has set?
WHO and the South African government have recommended Chlorites to be used to clean and disinfect area’s where there have been know contamination. Chlorites, which are more commonly known as bleach, are powerful disinfectants and the free chlorine found in Hypochlorous acid, in Sterall, is the safest in the class of chlorites
Why is Sterall safe to use?
Sterall is a safe non-toxic, eco-friendly hypochlorous acid solution. The available and free chlorine present in hypochlorous acid acts as an effective disinfectant but breaks down to a simple sodium solution. Free chlorine is safe and non-toxic, unlike active chlorine. Sterall also has no unnecessary additives. Hypochlorous acid is essentially made of sodium Chloride (NaCl) and Water. Through the process of electrolyses the chlorine is released and changed from an active to a free state. The free chlorine acts as the disinfectant but holds no toxic or other dangerous chemicals. Studies have proven that Hypochlorous acid used in a misting or fogging application is safe to inhaled in certain concentrations, of which Sterall is precisely calibrated. Sterall also poses minimal risks in terms of skin irritation unlike alcohol-based sanitizers.
How can Sterall be Eco friendly and effective?
Sterall is a specifically calibrated solution of Hypochlorous acid. Through the process of electrolyses the chlorine in HoCl is released and changed from an active to free state. The free chlorine acts as the disinfectant but holds no toxic or other dangerous chemicals. Hypochlorous acid has a shelf life of between 6 and 12 months.
The free Chlorine breaks down the virus’s fragile outer lipid envelope which makes the virus more susceptible to the chlorine disinfectant. Hypochlorous acid is even effective on less susceptible viruses such as Rotavirus and Nova virus
Why is Sterall effective when fogging or misting?
Sterall is an ideal option for misting for fogging. Being alcohol free it eliminates the risk of combustion when atomized and because it has no toxic properties, it is safe for use around all living things. By misting or fogging, Sterall is able to reach places that normal wiping could not reach. By misting and fogging, Sterall is spread more effectively and efficiently.
Why mist with Sterall everyday?
Misting is an ideal way to disinfect large areas effectively and efficiently. WHO recommends constant cleaning and disinfecting of public and frequently used areas. With Sterall being safe and non-toxic, it is the idea product for daily use around all living things. The misting should be done by trained personnel to ensure that the correct coverage and contact time.
