FAQ’s & Product Information
What is the product?
ClearSpace is an antimicrobial barrier treatment. Surfaces coated with this bio-barrier are protected from microbes such as viruses, including COVID-19, bacteria (staph, strep, E-Coli, pneumonia), fungi and mold (full list is available). It is a safe, odorless, colorless, invisible and easy to apply product, and will not stain surfaces to which it is applied.
How does it work?
The active ingredient has been used in a number of industries for over 15 years. It acts as a series of sharp “needles” on treated surfaces that puncture, and thereby destroy, the cell wall of invading microbes, rendering them inactive. ClearSpace does not use poison to eliminate germs and it will not leach off surfaces or create super bugs.
What types of surfaces does it work on?
ClearSpace works on both hard and soft surfaces. It can be safely used on upholstered seating, wood, laminate, metal, glass, and plastic. It also works on leather, faux leather, vinyl, cotton, polyester and is perfect for those high-touch areas around the home or office such as kitchens and bathrooms. The product can also be sprayed on cotton facemasks and other forms of PPE to enhance their effectiveness.
Is there proof that it works?
Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) is present in all organic material. ATP monitoring is a rapid testing method used by food and beverage processors and medical facilities to quickly assess the cleanliness of a surface. The use of ATP testing equipment is a process of rapidly measuring growing microorganisms through detection of ATP. Tests in medical facilities showed that one-time use of Clear Space reduced the ATP scores by 600% to a safe level.
For how long is a single treatment effective?
ClearSpace destroys germs on contact and provides up to 90 days of bio-barrier protection against recontamination.
How much product do you need to use?
A quart of ClearSpace will cover approximately 1,000 square feet of space. A little goes a long way!
The product is safe for food preparation, serving surfaces, and is used in a variety of settings including hospitals, rail and air transportation, sports locker rooms and more. It is registered with the EPA as a biostatic (protects surfaces from germs) and a biocidal agent (destroys germs on contact).
How is the product used?
Before or after regular disinfection, ClearSpace can be sprayed onto hard or soft surfaces and then wiped with a cloth or paper towel. After a 2-3-minute drying process, the product is completely safe to the touch. It can also be electrostatically sprayed or fogged into a space or sprayed onto HVAC air filters to further prevent the airborne spread of COVID-19 and other harmful pathogens.
Does sanitizing/disinfecting of the space neutralize the effectiveness of ClearSpace?
Spraying or disinfecting the surface prior to applying ClearSpace does not impact the efficacy of the product. In fact, ClearSpace can be applied either before or after the disinfecting process where it will remain effective for up to 90 days.
Is there evidence of efficacy in the prevention of COVID-19 on textiles and hard surfaces?
ClearSpace is registered as a biostatic agent, meaning that it protects surfaces from contamination after it has been applied, whereas biocidal agents kill viruses and bacteria on contact. However, ClearSpace is effective on both enveloped viruses and non-enveloped viruses which means that it has the capacity to also act as a biocidal agent.
How does ClearSpace compare with other anti-microbial products in the market?
The vast majority of products being marketed are effective for bacterial, fungal, and mold infections and NOT for viruses. ClearSpace has been proven to work on viruses including flus and due to its chemical properties, it is also effective against Coronaviruses. Additionally, since ClearSpace only requires one application for up to 90 days of protection, it can also save you money on cleaning products in the long-term.
Compare bleach disinfectants (Lysol, Clorox, etc.) with ClearSpace:
Bleach products kill viruses. However, they are only effective for a matter of seconds. Furthermore, bleach has no residual properties but the benefits of ClearSpace last for up to 90 days. Bleach is also corrosive on certain surfaces such as wood and laminate, and can even discolor some surfaces, particularly fabrics and leathers. ClearSpace is designed to complement the disinfecting process. The most effective use of ClearSpace includes cleaning and disinfecting a surface, and then applying the product. Afterwards, the up to 90-day barrier is set in place to destroy and inactivate the organisms. ClearSpace is added protection that provides safety, security and “insurance” against Coronaviruses, serious bacteria, and other harmful pathogens.
What other benefits does ClearSpace have?
Besides the long list of pathogens (whether they be bacterial, viral, fungal, Algae, yeast or mold related) that ClearSpace destroys and inactivates, the product also mitigates odors, reduces mold and mildew and the barrier allows treated surfaces to be more easily cleaned. The product is also environmentally friendly since it does not rely on chemicals to eliminate contaminants.
NOTE: ClearSpace is a bio-barrier product that treats surfaces within an individual’s surroundings. We are not making any health claims that a person will not contract COVID-19 or that it can cure anyone from the virus.
