DisinfeX is a safe compound that cleans, disinfects and deodorizes a wide array of surfaces, does not contain chlorine, bleach or harsh chemicals, and does not require the use of personal protective equipment to apply. Ideal for environmentally sensitive settings, DisinfeX is based on a botanical compound and quickly kills 99.9 percent of viruses, bacteria, fungi and mold.

What is DisinfeX?

DisinfeX offers a better way than the toxic chemicals typically used to deep clean offices, businesses, schools and residences. The product works off an antimicrobial agent present in a component of thyme oil, which destroys germs and powers through grime. DisinfeX is nonabrasive, nonflammable, environmentally friendly, and leaves behind no harsh smell—only the fresh scent of lemongrass and grapefruit.

The patented technology in DisinfeX requires no rinsing, even on food contact services. It disinfects, sanitizes, cleans and deodorizes in a single step, and is also effective in restoration and remediation. It’s suitable for use on countertops and appliances, walls, floors and windows, showers, baths and toilets, high chairs and baby furniture, and almost any other hard surface.

How does DisinfeX work?

Thyme oil, a naturally occurring compound produced by the thyme plant whose leaves are used as an herb in cooking, has long been known for its antimicrobial properties. In April, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency approved the use of Thymol—the active ingredient in DisinfeX, derived from thyme oil—for use as a disinfectant against the novel coronavirus.

For good reason, given Thymol’s effectiveness without using the toxic ingredients or leaving behind the chemical smells of other products. In 30 seconds, DisinfeX sanitizes. In two minutes, it eliminates 99.9 percent of bacteria, including salmonella, E. coli and streptococcus.  In three minutes, it kills 99.9 percent of fungi and mold. In four minutes, it kills 99.9 percent of all viruses, including the human coronavirus and swine flu.

Is DisinfeX safe?

Thymol, the compound powering DisinfeX, is something people use almost every day—it’s also an ingredient in food flavorings, mouthwash, toothpaste, perfumes and cosmetics. The naturally occurring antibacterial is often used in oral care against cavities and gingivitis. Initially given the green light by the EPA in 2011, Thymol has long been considered a safe and non-toxic alternative to more harsh cleaning and disinfecting products.

It all makes DisinfeX an ideal choice for deep-cleaning any home, office or business. Combined with a pest prevention program, it offers even further peace of mind.
