Choosing the Right Cleaning Products for Your Airline
Global Standards from the International Air Transport Association
The International Air Transport Association, or IATA, is a trade association that sets technical standards, including cleaning guidelines, for airlines. These cleaning guidelines include “informed selection and the correct use of chemical products” which is “vital in ensuring effective cleaning and disinfection of an aircraft without damaging the aircraft interior, systems, and equipment while minimizing the likelihood of the transmission of COVID-19 or any other communicable diseases.” The IATA’s number one priority is safety, and these guidelines ensure the safety of passengers, crew, and other employees.
The EPA List N
The IATA recommends that airlines refer to local authorities for recommendations of products effective against COVID-19 and other contagious pathogens. The EPA maintains List N, a group of products expected to kill all strains and variants of the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) when used according to the label directions. Bioesque’s Botanical Disinfectant Solution is included on this list. The IATA also advocates referring to the aircraft manufacturers’ guidelines for the most recent recommendations.
The IATA also states that “cleaning and disinfection products should comply with and be certified or tested according to OEM standards and/or industry test standards, such as SAE International standards.” Bioesque’s Botanical Disinfectant Solution has AMS 1452C & BSS7434 approved testing, in accordance with SAE International standards.
A 55-Second Kill-Time
Finally, the IATA directs airlines to “refer to the cleaning and disinfection product manufacturer’s instructions to ensure that the proper application, frequency, quantity, ventilation and personal protection equipment is used.” Bioesque’s Botanical Disinfectant Solution includes a 55-second dwell time for effective use against coronavirus. Furthermore, it is a ready-to-use all-purpose formula safe for everyday use without the need of personal protective equipment.
A Safer Way to Clean
Cleaning chemicals like bleach, chlorine, and ammonia are very effective, but come with an added cost: they’re harsh, toxic, and terrible for the environment. Bioesque Solutions was founded on the principle that there must be a safer way to clean without sacrificing the power of these chemicals. With a formula that is free of bleach and other harsh chemicals, Bioesque’s Botanical Disinfectant Solution is a great choice for hazard-conscious or environmentally sensitive settings. Powered by Thymox technology, it utilizes Thymol, a cutting-edge antimicrobial agent present as a component of Thyme Oil, to quickly power through grime and destroy the germs that it encounters.
