FloraLife® DCD® Cleaner is proven to be effective on COVID-19 as per the EPA COVID-19 disinfectant list (List N: Disinfectants)

In North America, FloraLife Delivers the Disinfectants to Fight the Coronavirus!

The COVID-19 crisis reminds us of the importance of sanitation and disinfection in the workplace and beyond. FloraLife has TWO effective products to help you do that: FloraLife® D.C.D. ® Cleaner and MicroBLOC® Disinfectant. Both meet EPA’s criteria for use against SARS-CoV-2, the novel coronavirus that causes the disease COVID-19. See EPA List N for more details. Both products can be used to disinfect many different surfaces outside of the floral industry.

Use FloraLife® D.C.D.® Cleaner solution to disinfect, clean, and deodorize all surfaces (including food contact surfaces), appliances and work areas. Use as a general purpose, long lasting, antimicrobial detergent for efficient cleaning and disinfecting action against bacteria, fungus and viruses.

Please follow instructions on the label for proper use. The products are formulated to disinfect as per the dosing instructions. To disinfect food processing premises, make sure that food products and packaging materials are removed from the area before using these products. These products cannot be used to clean utensils, glassware and dishes. Contact your FloraLife representative for additional information.

Questions about the safety of floral industry products.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “there is likely very low risk of spread from products or packaging that are shipped over a period of days or weeks at ambient temperatures. Coronaviruses are generally thought to be spread most often by respiratory droplets. Currently there is no evidence to support transmission of COVID-19 associated with imported goods and there have not been any cases of COVID-19 in the United States associated with imported goods. Information will be provided on the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) website as it becomes available.”
