Where can I use it?
Defense Pro is a hospital-grade, broad spectrum surface disinfectant that is approved for use in: Homes, schools, restaurants, day cares, offices, athletic facilities, medical facilities, as well as institutional, industrial and commercial settings.
How is Defense Pro made?
After combining the water and salt, we use highly specialized equipment, called
ElectroChemical Activation, to apply an electrical current that super-charges the mixture.
The result is Hypochlorous Acid (HOCI), a disinfectant that is far more effective than even chlorine bleach, yet gentle enough to use as a total room disinfectant.
Our product does not contain any additives, dyes, preservatives, or fragrances. It is alcohol-free, non-corrosive, does not leave a residue or require any rinsing.
What is Hypochlorous acid (HOCI)?
Hypochlorous acid (HOCI) is produced by our white blood cells to help our immune system fight infection by protecting our bodies from invading pathogens and viruses.
Defense Pro is a supercharged version of Hypochlorous acid designed to destroy harmful bacteria and viruses on hard surfaces and in the air.
Is Defense Pro environmentally friendly?
Defense Pro is a green disinfectant solution. It is produced with low energy in a single-stage process by a simple electrolytic cell. From production to application, this is an earth-friendly product in every sense!
✔ NO fumes
✔ NO toxic chemicals that cause irritation
✔ NO residue left behind
✔ NO rinsing
✔ NO fragrances
✔ NO dyes
✔ NO preservatives
How do I apply it?
Defense Pro can be applied by using a traditional spray bottle, backpack sprayer, electrostatic sprayers, and foggers.
What about the "super bugs"?
The active ingredient in Defense Pro, HOCl, is proven against superbugs, such as MRSA. Micro-organisms cannot develop resistance to HOCl, unlike traditional chemical agents.
How long does it take for it Defense Pro to work?
This product should always be used as directed. Per EPA's guidelines for disinfectants, treated surfaces must remain wet for 10 minutes.
Is there a scent?
There are no added fragrances. It does have a slight chlorine scent, which is similar to a swimming pool environment. This smell dissipates very quickly.
How often should I apply it?
You may apply Defense Pro as often as you need to disinfect an area or surface. Since it does not contain any toxic chemicals and does not leave behind any residue, use it as much as you would like. And because it's made with salt and water, gloves are not required
for use, and rinsing is not necessary.
Apply it between office visits, church services, classroom and meeting breaks, or in between events to disinfect and deodorize hard surfaces.
If HOCI is so powerful, then why am I just hearing about it?
The main reason most people have not heard about HOCI is because the product has a short shelf life because it does not incorporate any preservatives in the formula.
Are you able to customize a program for us?
Disinfecting needs have grown and workers should not be forced to bear the burden of working with hazardous chemicals, therefore, we will work with your organization to ensure timely, consistent delivery of our product.
What is the shelf life?
The product should be used within 30 days after it is produced in our facility. After this time frame, product may still be used as long as it is tested with a chlorine test kit to ensure appropriate chlorine concentration (see label for specifics to each product).
