With the outbreak of the Corona COVID-19 virus worldwide, we have received many questions about the effectiveness of our probiotic cleaning products. By means of this statement, we want to provide correct information on what to expect and how to use the RHINOC Sport products.
First of all, NOT A SINGLE CLEANING PRODUCT in the world can prevent the direct transmission from person to person (through sneezing, coughing, kissing, hand contact …) of this (or any) virus. This is only possible through the known social distance measures. However, there is still a very large indirect risk of contamination via contaminated surfaces or objects. So, we need to focus on the indirect transfer through hand, surfaces or objects.
1. Strictly follow the instructions and guidelines of the government regarding personal contact (social distancing)! These guidelines are there to prevent DIRECT infections!
2. Follow our RHINOC Sport cleaning strategy below to avoid the INDIRECT contamination:
Cleaning of surfaces. Bacteria and viruses (incl COVID19) can survive longer on surfaces with a lot of organic pollution (= food source for micro-organisms). Cleaning with a RHINOC Sport cleaning product ensure a very clean surface. This can be done via the “classic” cleaning method, or “indirectly” for surfaces that are difficult to access or difficult to clean.
RHINOC Sport offers products with innovative technologies for optimum hygiene and protection that significantly reduce the risk of indirect contamination. Our RHINOC Sport probiotic range contains probiotics for improved hygiene and protection. Upon application, the probiotics will stay on the surface in order to provide two main benefits:
- Deep cleaning: The probiotics in the products produce enzymes that break down organic pollution to make the surface microscopically pure. The probiotics remain active for several days and prevent new pollution from accumulating. A clean surface gives less chance of growth or survival of unwanted germs!
- Healthy microbiome: A surface (incl materials and skin) that is covered with a healthy microflora gives less chance of the presence of unwanted germs. The probiotics in the products are good bacteria that permanently cover all surfaces.
In order to benefit from this superior probiotic protection, RHINOC Sport recommends some of the probiotic products for improved hygiene and protection.
Surface cleaning. Corona COVID-19 may survive longer on surfaces that contain biofilm or a lot of organic pollution. Cleaning with any of the RHINOC Sport probiotic cleaning products will make sure that the surface becomes and remains free of organic pollution. The probiotics will keep cleaning the surface constantly! Such a clean surface will also improve the efficacy of disinfectants if needed.
- The RHINOC Sport All Purpose Cleaner range makes sure that the surface remains free of organic pollution.
Objects/textile. It is not always possible to clean all surfaces/materials (such as textile) or objects/rooms. This leaves a possible hot spot for the corona virus.
- The RHINOC Ultrasonic Fogger covers all surfaces and objects with a good microflora to lower the risk of infections (this product will soon be launched)
In case you need to disinfect your gym or club with the outbreak of the corona virus RHINOC Sport assists you. We have done intense research on disinfection, hygiene and material sustainability and found a German producer with whom we collaborate. A water-based, alcohol-free long term surface disinfectant with residual effect on bacteria, viruses and fungi. Check below the RHINOC Sport water-based, alcohol-free disinfection products that we offer. * these are available in some countries with our own RHINOC Sport biocide-registration. For other countries we have collaborations with partners that can supply a similar products. Please contact us for more information.
The primary goal was to develop a surface disinfectant that not only disinfects, but which also guarantees a long-lasting effect until the next disinfection. The real benefit of such a disinfectant, when integrated into established disinfection plans, is that it provides significantly higher safety against the spread of germs and viruses, thereby reducing re-infection. It effectively closes the hygiene gap! It has been developed to improve safety between the individual disinfection steps and give people a new tool in the fight against germs and viruses.
RHINOC Sport disinfection is water-based and therefore harmless to fitness machines, dumbbells, leather all kinds of surfaces. The products have a Derma-test approval which means it is also harmless to skin.
We do believe that is better to also use probiotic cleaning to reach a good microbiome in the area as we explained above.
