Why doesn't AHP have a scent?
Unlike most disinfectants no perfumes, colognes or other scenting agents are added to AHP products.To us the word 'clean' means the absence of ANY smell.When AHP is used regularly in any establishment the lack of offensive odours can be remarkable.
Can I mix bleach with AHP?
As with many chemicals mixing bleach (or other chlorine products such as Trifectant, Virkon or WisiWash) with AHP products has the potential to produce a toxic gas that is dangerous. As such cloths, mops or other items that have been used with chlorine based products should be thoroughly rinsed or preferably replaced prior to using Accel.
We are experiencing a bad odour after cleaning and a slippery/sticky film on the surfaces, what is causing this?
When using a residual chemistry (quats, phenols) there will be a layer on the surfaces that Accel's superior cleaning properties will start to strip away. This can expose organic material that can be slippery and give off bad odours. This will go away once the layer of residue has been removed either by several good cleanings or a single vigorous cleaning.
Will Accel affect floor finishes or wax? How about rubber floors and matting?
When used at the appropriate dilution rates Accel Prevention Concentrate should not have any ill effect on floor finishes and is safe for virtually all surfaces including rubber floors and matting.A Material Compatibility Chart is available on our support line.
Can AHP kill Giardia, Cryptosporidium oocysts, Titrich, or Piroplasmosi?
These parasites are very resistant to all disinfectants including high concentrations of bleach. Based on peer reviewed documentation and experience of the use of our products we can say that Hydrogen Peroxide has been found to be effective against Cryptosporidium.Since Accel is such a high powered cleaner as well as being a broad spectrum disinfectant the use of Accel would be an excellent choice in any facility focused on the prevention of disease outbreaks related to coccidia.
Can AHP be safely disposed of into a septic system?
The active ingredient found in the Accel line of products is hydrogen peroxide which readily biodegrades into water and oxygen upon entering a sewer or septic system.Our experience indicates that properly maintained septic systems can handle normal wastes generated from the use of AHP formulations.
Many products say they are a one step disinfectant.Do they all perform the same?
Traditional products that state they are one step disinfectants are actually quite poor cleaners.In standardized government tests for cleaning efficacy traditional disinfectant chemistry (quats, chlorine, etc.) achieved only about 16% cleaning efficacy.In contrast Accel Prevention hits 98.77% on the same tests.
Is Accel Prevention truly a one step cleaner and disinfectant?
Given the high powered cleaning efficacy of Accel Prevention a pre-cleaning step is normally not required. However, you should ensure that feces, bedding or body fluids are removed prior to cleaning and disinfection.
