Sterifab Protects from Viruses

The EPA-Approved Virus-Killer and Disinfectant

EPA-approved, Sterifab is specially formulated to destroy an extensive range of disease-causing viruses, bacteria and other harmful microorganisms and pathogens.  Among industry professionals, Sterifab is the go-to product used for disinfecting, getting rid of mildew, and killing pests in homes, schools, resorts, transportation departments, offices, retail, and manufacturing facilities. On the market for more than 50 years, Sterifab spray is odorless and leaves no trace, meaning 15 minutes after application, people and animals can return to the treated room and get right back to life as normal. 

Because Sterifab is so effective in eradicating viruses and bacteria, it’s also frequently used in hospitals, ERs, and emergency medical transportation services.
In fact, for many years it’s been the sanitization agent of choice in medical facilities because it is EPA-approved and meets the rigorous requirements demanded of ant-bacterial and antiviral agents. Additionally, Sterifab is biodegradable, which is important in health care facilities since it leaves no operational constituents.


How Does Sterifab Work as a Virucide?

A scientist once observed that viruses teeter on the boundaries of what is considered life, but that doesn’t prevent them from being extremely dangerous on occasion. These microscopic parasites, far smaller than bacteria, have been responsible for many a contagion, among them the 2014 ebola outbreak in West Africa, the 2009 H1N1/swine flu pandemic and of course COVID-19.

Virucides like Sterifab are:

  1. Chemical substances that attack and deactivate the extracellular viral particles (or virions) of a particular strain of virus.

  2. They work by damaging the viron’s protein capsid or supercapsidal membrane.

  3. They can also penetrate the virion itself, destroying its genetic material. 

  4. Virucidal agents are often used in a number of ways, including:

  • Environmental disinfectants (the most traditional use).

  • Sterilizing of biological products for parenteral administration, e.g. blood, blood products, medicinals, etc.

  • Eliminating viruses from food, sanitary products and cosmetics (not a recommended use for Sterifab).

How to Use Sterifab as a Virucide

As an effective virucide, Sterifab can be used to clean and disinfect an enormous variety of surfaces, and it is specifically designed to kill common pathogenic bacteria and viruses.

1. Spray Sterifab onto hard surfaces and wait until they dry naturally.
2. If you’re in a hurry, simple wait 10 seconds and then carefully wipe down the sprayed surface. 
3. You can also use Sterifab to get rid of viruses on mattresses, upholstered furniture, carpets, and other porous surfaces.

Note: Never use Sterifab on people, pets, and food-related items as kitchen utensils, including pots,   pans, dishes and cutlery.

Why Use Sterifab to Kill Viruses?

In two words: Versatility and reliability, plus it’s easy to use, potent, crystal clear and odorless.

And it has added benefits as well. In addition to killing the viruses and acting as a strong disinfectant, Sterifab will also get rid of any pests including lice, ticks, dust mites, bed bugs and scabies and more. EPA-approved, Sterifab is registered as a multipurpose disinfectant, fungicide, and cleansing agent that also eliminates mold and mildew.

Finally, Sterifab is a non-residual spray that deodorizes as it disinfects, ridding your home, car or office, of viruses and bacteria. First introduced in 1967, Sterifab is the go-to product for professionals and one of the most effective insecticides, disinfectants and virucide in-one.

Don Haynes, a commentator with MSNBC, called Sterifab “a super mixture of virucide, bactericide, fungicide, insecticide, germicide, and 5 or 6 other ingredients."

Sterifab is precisely engineered to:

Destroys micro-organisms

Kills fungus

Kills viruses

Kills mold and mildew

Kills germs and disinfects

Destroy pathogenic odors

Plus, it not only reduces the level of microorganisms from a variety of sites, but also functions as a bacteriostatic  ̶  inhibiting bacterial growth  ̶  and as a highly effective fungistatic, preventing otherwise hard-to-control fungal growth.

Advantages of Using Sterifab as a Virucide

Sterifab is a genuinely all-purpose disinfectant and, unlike many other similar products, has a number of features that make it ideal for a multitude of uses. It:
