Like most people, you probably don't think too much about how many things you touch over the course of a day. You might head to the kitchen for a snack, obviously touching the refrigerator. If you head to the bathroom, you'll be touching the sink. If you're working at your computer all day, you're touching your keyboard and mouse. But it doesn't get much more complicated than that, right?


A lot of people would be surprised to learn that according to one source, we touch an estimated 30 different things every single minute. From car steering wheels to cell phones to money, grocery carts and more. Likewise, all of these surfaces have the potential to collect - and spread - germs if we're not careful. 

This, in essence, is why touchpoint disinfection is so important. By making a proactive effort to clean key areas or items that are touched frequently throughout the day, you do your part to keep the environments you're living and working in as germ-free as possible at all times. But to get to that point, however, there are a few key things you'll want to keep in mind.

The Art of Touchpoint Disinfection: Breaking Things Down

Maybe the most important thing for you to understand about touchpoint disinfection is that not all products are created equally. Take COVID-19, for example. A lot of spray and similar products claim that they're effective at fighting off the Coronavirus, but it's difficult to be sure without further research. In an effort to make this as easy as possible, EPA List N was created.

List N was developed by the Environmental Protection Agency to single out products that have been qualified to fight against SARS-CoV-2, otherwise known as the Coronavirus that causes COVID-19. To get onto list N, a product must have been tested against and approved for effectiveness in eliminating SARS-CoV-2 - meaning that if you purchase a safety product on that list, you can be confident in knowning that it's perfect for use all throughout your daily life. 


At Pro Solutions Direct, we only make EPA registered products available to our customers and Benefect Decon 30 and Shockwave RTU are two of the prime examples of that in action. 


Shockwave RTU is a ready-to-use multipurpose disinfectant and cleaner that is registered for use against COVID-19 and comes with a short 10 minute contact time. In addition to working great on food processing areas, it also acts as a mildewstat, a deodorizer, as carpet treatment, as a laundry additive and more. It can even help successfully decontaminate HIV-1 and HBV on surfaces that were previously soiled with blood or other bodily fluids, too. 
Benefit Decon 30 is similarly ready to use, and it's an EPA registered botanical disinfectant, cleaner, bactericide, virucide and fungicide product all rolled into one. Personal Protective Equipment is not required to use it because there are absolutely no human health warnings or precautionary statements for use or disposal.
