Bioarmor-nano® is a manufacturing company specialising in laboratory tested nano-thin, invisible protective surface coatings that were originally tested to give 99.9% reduction in surface microbes and bacteria, and now have a 95% efficacy on enveloped viruses – after testing on the phi6 bacteriophage. Bioarmor-nano® recently conducted a survey with over 600 people across the UK to find out more about the cleaning habits with the question ‘anti-bacterial wipes or sprays – how do you protect your home?’.
The survey results revealed that over 53% of respondents prefer to use wipes to protect their home surfaces, with 90% of all respondents claiming they would ‘buy a long lasting anti-bacterial solution’.
An overwhelming 71% of respondents are also ‘more conscious’ of how clean their homes are after enduring the difficulties of a pandemic, becoming more aware of harmful bacterias and viruses.
Other results from the survey showed that 44% of people purchase anti-bacterial products for their home on a monthly basis, and 65% of people find it ‘very important’ to know that their surfaces in their home are always protected from harmful viruses and bacterias.
John Shaw, Bioarmor European Director commented: “There’s a huge upsurge in interest of our products, and the need to protect homes, products, devices and offices from the effects of harmful bacterias that target surfaces. It’s important to mention that not all bacterias and microbes are harmful, but the importance to keep our personal spaces protected is the result of what we have seen from Coronavirus.
“Our products have been tested on the E-coli, MRSA and Staphylococcus aureus bacteria and we have now concluded successful testing on the phi6 virus in a controlled laboratory environment, the non-porous substrate treated with Bioarmor-nano® demonstrated a reduction of up to 95% of the phi6 enveloped virus after contact with it for 24 hours. We are also in the process of negotiating with several high protocol level labs to test on the actual Coronavirus, and will update the nation as soon as we have any further exciting news for protecting our surfaces.”
