Cleaning and Maintenance for Products Coated with Aereus Shield

Clean and sanitize according to standard practice. Healthcare facilities must maintain the product in accordance with infection control guidelines. The use of this surface is a supplement to and not a substitute for standard infection control practices; users must continue to follow all current infection control practices, including those practices related to cleaning and disinfection of environmental surfaces. This surface has been shown to reduce microbial contamination, but does not necessarily prevent cross contamination.

This surface may be subject to recontamination and the level of active bacteria at any time will depend on the frequency and timing of recontamination and cleanliness of the surface (among other factors).  In order to have proper antimicrobial effect, this product must be cleaned and maintained according to the directions for use.

This product must not be waxed, painted, lacquered, varnished, or otherwise coated.

Routine cleaning to remove dirt and filth is necessary for good sanitization and to assure the effective antibacterial performance of this surface. Cleaning agents typically used for traditional hard, non-porous touch surfaces are permissible.  The appropriate cleaning agent depends on the type of soiling and the measure of sanitization required. Normal wear of this surface will not impair the antibacterial effectiveness.

Not approved for direct food contact or food packaging uses. Potential skin sensitizer. Keep out of reach of children.
