Advanced Vapor Technologies, a maker of proprietary, water-only steam vapor cleaning and disinfection systems has released its “Guide to EPA-Regulated Disinfecting Devices."
“Our purpose in releasing this one-page guide is to help clear up the confusion about the difference between EPA Registration of chemical disinfectants or pesticides and EPA Regulated disinfecting devices bearing an EPA Establishment Number on the label,” said Rick Hoverson, principal of Advanced Vapor Technologies. “Our intent is to show that non-chemical devices that kill germs effectively without the use of toxic chemistries are regulated by EPA, and especially, that credible makers of these devices have solid scientific data to support germ-kill claims.”
