Unless labeled as a disinfectant, Eco-Max products sanitize surfaces. This means they clean away dirt and grime, reducing bacteria found on surfaces.
If an Eco-Max product is labeled as a disinfectant, like our Tea Tree Disinfecting Toilet Bowl Cleaner, this means it is designed to both kill bacteria and sanitize surfaces.
Remember, disinfectants can kill both good and bad bacteria. In most everyday cleaning situations, disinfecting is not required to maintain a healthy home or workplace. Routine cleaning with a product like Eco-Max will do the trick! Use disinfectants only when needed.
To identify if a Canadian product is a disinfectant, look for a Drug Identification Number (DIN) on the product labeling. All disinfectants in Canada are approved by and registered with Health Canada and bear a DIN on product labeling. If you are not in Canada, check your region's laws and guidelines around disinfectants to help with identifying disinfecting products.
Note about COVID-19: Eco-Max products have not been tested to kill COVID-19 virus. When cleaning to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we recommend following the latest public health advice from the World Health Organization (WHO) or your local health authority.
