Antimicrobial “Right To Know”
We strive to uphold the highest standards of care in our work. In order to perform our restoration service effectively and completely, an antimicrobial may be used to control microbial growth. We are proud to say that every consideration has been given in choosing an antimicrobial that will not introduce additional health risks or compromise indoor air quality. It is an industry best practice to inform the Customer of the antimicrobial that may be used during the restoration.
Benefect Botanical Disinfectant has been chosen specifically for its botanical antimicrobial technology. It’s the world’s first and only all botanical antimicrobial and replaces the need for traditional synthetic chemicals. Benefect Botanical Disinfectant is registered with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a broad spectrum, hospital disinfectant that kills 99.99% of bacteria, viruses & fungi (mold) and is suitable to be used in residential or commercial applications. The EPA also reviews & classifies all antimicrobials for Acute Toxicity for all routes of human exposure (skin, inhalation, eyes and ingestion). Benefect Botanical Disinfectant has not shown to have any adverse effects and has a Category IV rating -the lowest toxicity profile allowed by law. As a result, EPA labeling legislation does not require any signal words, warnings, cautions or first aid statements on the product label. Benefect Disinfectant is low VOC and does not contain any carcinogens, mutagens or reproductive toxicants. This product is free of synthetic fragrances, dyes and ammonia and chlorine.
Your “Right To Know” is a commitment to full information and transparency popularized by environmentalist Rachel Carson in the 60’s(1), which inspired the creation of the EPA and today is embodied in many federal and local state laws.(2)
Benefect® has been the recipient of the Rachel Carson League Award for Environmental Contribution they share this honor with other distinguished leaders like Green Peace & The Audobon Society.
