The Science behind
COVID CLEAR Disinfectant

COVID CLEAR is an Ionized Hypochlorous Acid (HO-CL) Safe (Weak Acid, but STRONG Sanitizer), Strongly Oxidizing. Used as a Disinfectant and Sanitizer Hypochlorous acid is in the chlorine family, but it’s all-natural and non-toxic Electro-chemically activated acidic water gives professional-levels of effectiveness and strength in killing germs and viruses on contact (within about 10 seconds). It is an all-natural germ and virus killer.

The molecule of hypochlorous acid is HOCL. This molecule is unique in that it is neutrally charged unlike hypochlorite (OCl-) which is negatively charged. So why is this important?

Disinfectants and microbial pathogens interact with each other similar to magnets. If you bring together two negatively charged magnets, they will repel each other. Bacteria and hypochlorite (OCl- aka. bleach) are both negatively charged and behave like two negatively charged magnets repelling each other. Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) is neutrally charged and is not repelled by bacteria. HOCl easily penetrates the walls of the bacteria and destroys them with its strong oxidation potential.

Hypochlorous acid is naturally produced by white blood cells of all mammals. It plays an important role in the immune system killing pathogens through oxidation and chlorination.

Hypochlorous acid can also be produced through a process called electrolysis. Electrolysis is a technique that uses a direct electric current (DC) to drive an otherwise non-spontaneous chemical reaction. Specifically engineered elecrolysis cells can generate a solution of free chlorine species by running electricity through NaCl (table salt) and water. The oxidants hypochlorous acid (HOCl) and hypochlorite (OCl-) are formed at the anode. If the pH of the solution is weakly acidic to neutral, the free chlorine solution will be dominated by hypochlorous acid.

Uses of Ionized Hypochlorous Acid

Because ionized hypochlorous acid is not as corrosive as many disinfectants are used in a variety of ways to make sure surfaces are clean. Grocery stores can use our COVID Clear solution to clean and preserve fresh produce and meat. It is also gentle enough to use in medical procedures. Dentists use hypochlorous acid to help heal wounds; it is frequently used by eye doctors and is common in many veterinary products. For all of these reasons, COVID Clear is perhaps the safest and most effective way to keep shared and communal spaces free of the virus COVID-19. Not only do we provide our COVID Clear solution so businesses and institutions can clean and clear surfaces easily between customer interactions, but we also offer training and continuous cleaning.

COVID Clear Provides Peace of Mind

At COVID Clear, we understand the pressures corporate and small businesses are experiencing. We know it is a challenging time for public institutions as well. This is why it is vital to begin new protocols for sanitizing and disinfecting surfaces so employees, customers, students, and families can be safe not just in their own homes but when they go out as our nation re-opens.

Our ionized disinfecting solution gives businesses one more tool to keep COVID-19 at bay and provide customers and employees with the reassurances they need. We offer a wide variety of products, including:

  • Ionized disinfection solutions for continuous delivery to make part of your daily maintenance routine.
  • Ionized disinfection solutions for one-time purchase.
  • Misters, foggers, and sprayers which disinfect the air where COVID-19 lingers providing one more layer of support
  • Thermometers so employees can keep track of their health.

Every business is unique. Reach out to us today at 561.425.9117, and we can answer your questions and address your concerns making the most of your time.
