Right when many of us thought the COVID-19 pandemic was coming to an eventual end, the Delta variant of the virus rapidly brought us back to what feels like square one. While vaccination and masking continue to be excellent tools for reducing the spread, disinfection remains one of our most powerful weapons in the fight against the virus.

Can disinfectants kill the Delta variant?

Yes! Certain disinfectants are approved by the EPA to be effective against COVID-19 and the Delta variant. While most of you are familiar by now with EPA list N, it’s helpful to understand the different types of disinfectants on the list.

Some disinfectants on the list have not been tested on the actual COVID-19 virus, also known as SARS-CoV-2. These formulas are known to be effective against other similar viruses and are assumed to be effective against COVID-19 and the delta variant.

Others on the list have an “Emerging Virus Pathogen Claim” but have also not been tested. These disinfectants are proven to be effective against viruses that are more difficult to kill than COVID-19, so they are assumed to be effective against the novel coronavirus.

Finally, some disinfectants on the list have actually been tested on SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. These are proven disinfectants against the virus and the Delta variant.

One such disinfectant that is proven to work against SARS-CoV-2 is Multi-Clean 128 E-FECTicide. This formula requires a 1-minute contact time, making disinfection fast and easy.

Should I change my disinfection routine due to the Delta variant?

We know that most of our customers have enhanced their cleaning and disinfection practices during the pandemic, and we recommend continuing to focus on regular disinfection of high-touch surfaces. These spaces are most likely to harbor pathogens and may include restrooms, doorknobs, railings, light switches and other oft-touched surfaces and objects.
