What Does Antimicrobial Mean

In the world of cleaning solutions, not all are cut from the same cloth.  You often hear words like “sanitizer”, “disinfectant”, or “antimicrobial” used interchangeably to describe different household cleaners. How do you know what these terms really mean, and more importantly, what does that mean for you and your safety?

The truth is there are some really important distinctions between the types of products we use to clean and maintain the surfaces in our homes.  For example, sanitizers only reduce bacteria.  And while disinfectants do kill bacteria and viruses, they don’t have long-lasting protection.

MicroGold Multi-Action Disinfectant Antimicrobial Spray is a “two-in-one” disinfectant and antimicrobial spray that is meant for hard, non-porous surfaces… from countertops, appliances and sinks to phones, peripherals and sporting equipment.

Check out this video to learn more about exactly what “antimicrobial” means and how MicroGold technology works.

The key with using MicroGold properly, is time.  To kill viruses like COVID-19, the surface must remain wet for three minutes and to kill bacteria, ten minutes.  The application itself is quite simple in practice–just spray and wait.      

While the coronavirus spreads mainly via person-to-person contact, there is evidence that cross-contamination can occur if a person touches an infected surface and then their mouth, nose or eyes.

When used as directed, MicroGold Multi-Action Disinfectant Antimicrobial Spray can leave a lasting effect that protects your home.  So, how does it work exactly?  MicroGold’s unique technology is based on what can be described as a “powerhouse” Si-Quat antimicrobial that infiltrates germs at their core, completely destroying the functioning cells of microorganisms.
