The Coronavirus is an emerging, rapidly evolving situation.
While browsing the internet for additional information we came across a website called PubMed, which seems to publish pertinent and timely public health information in the US under the auspices of the US National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health. The following study was on the front page:
The effect of H2O2 on adenovirus types 3 and 6, adenoassociated virus type 4, rhinoviruses 1A, 1B, and type 7, myxoviruses, influenza A and B, respiratory syncytial virus, strain Long, and coronavirus strain 229E was studied in vitro, using different H2O2 concentration and timec of exposure. H2O2 in a 3 percent concentration inactivated all the viruses under study within 1–30 min. Coronavirus and influenza viruses were found to be most sensitive. Reoviruses, adenoviruses and adenoassociated virus were relatively stable. H2O2 is a convenient means for virus inactivation.
What jumped out to us, was the final comment on the effectiveness of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide on disinfecting for viruses. We would like to point out two facts..firstly our Oxy House Mold and Mildew Wash formula is largely made of Hydrogen Peroxide, and secondly it is over 10 times as strong, so it stands to reason that by disinfecting any surface with Oxy House Mold and Mildew Wash, we are effectively destroying the virus, or as the study terms it, achieving “virus inactivation”.
