What does the disinfection process consist of?

Our application is a two-step process:
• Step 1 is a powerful no-rinse, no-wipe, one-step, all-purpose cleaner, deodorizer, disinfectant and anti-allergen that sanitizes and disinfects surfaces to “prime” them for, and help ensure a permanent bond with, a subsequent application of our protective coating shield. A single fogged-on application will kill up to 99.999% of germs, bacteria, viruses, fungi, mold and other harmful microbes on hard, nonporous surfaces and 99.999% of the same on fabrics and carpet, while also eliminating common odors and allergens.
• Step 2 is a permanent antimicrobial surface protectant. Like Step 1, this is applied by an electro-magnetic fogger. Upon application, it bonds with the surfaces to which it is applied. As the protective coating dries millions of positively-charged microscopic “spikes” form and extend from the surface. Because microorganisms are negatively charged, they are electrostatically pulled onto the positively charged spikes and eliminated, as the spikes rupture their cell walls and, essentially “electrocute” them.
• Once cured it will not wash off and can last, and remain antimicrobially active for up to 3 months of the treated surfaces.

Do surfaces that have been treated with Gold Shield’s products need to be cleaned?
Gold Shield’s disinfection is not a replacement for routine cleaning. In fact, routine cleaning is recommended to keep the disinfectant effective, as the antimicrobial surface is very thin and too much dirt or other contaminant build-up can cover the spike like appliances and render them less effective until they are cleaned.
How long does the disinfectant last once applied?
Given the many different surfaces, environments and conditions SHIELD is subjected to, and other factors, our residual efficacy claim is limited to “up to 90 days.
Is the disinfectant effective on all of the many different materials and surfaces in my vehicle’s passenger cabin?
Yes. The disinfectant used by Gold Shield Sanitation bonds to and is effective on, virtually any surface, whether it’s porous, nonporous, hard, soft, solid or fabric/upholstery. This is an important benefit as standard disinfectants are, by federal law, only approved for use on hard, non-porous surfaces.
Will regular cleaning of the treated surface reduce the effectiveness of the disinfectant?
No. Normal cleaning will not harm or remove the top coat of our disinfectant. It is, however, important to note that sanding, or scrubbing treated surfaces with abrasive cleaners, will partially remove it, requiring spot reapplication to regain effectiveness.
