DAC Disinfectant has a special formula that helps to disrupt the cell formation of various viruses and bacteria, breaking it down and helping to eliminate it from forming again for up to 24 hours. This is possible due to the special QUAT biocide that is part of the product’s formula. The QUAT biocide kills the bacteria and has a residual effect due to the wetting action which enables the surface tension to be reduced enabling the biocide to stick to the surface.
For best results with fast germ kill use DAC Disinfectant undiluted. However, if the product is to be used in a concoction for cleaning then we recommend 1cup of DAC Disinfectant in 5ltrs of water (or 1 part DAC and 10 parts water).
During the cleaning process you can use DAC Disinfectant as an additive to your current mode of cleaning.
