Option 2: Bucket-less Mop/Pad Use: Mats, floor surfaces, etc.

  • Ensure the bucket-less mop tank is clean prior to use.
  • Fill the mop tank to the desired level to accommodate surfaces to be treated. Do not add water or other cleaning agents.
  • Place a clean pad on the frame of the mop unit.
  • Keep the pad soaked at all times but not dripping.
  • Mop the surfaces in a straight line working from one end to the other with a slight overlap.
  • Check the condition of the pad on a regular basis. Replace pad if it becomes significantly dirty.
  • Mop surface to leave a consistent light coat on all surfaces ensuring no areas are left untreated.
  • Allow surfaces to fully cure until dry.

Option 3: Pump Sprayer

  • Ensure the pump sprayer tank and hose is clean prior to use.
  • Fill pump sprayer tank to the level required for treating surfaces (16 oz. for every 200 square feet). Do not add water or other cleaning agents.
  • Adjust spray nozzle to the lightest mist spray setting that will provide an even coating.
  • Spray surfaces using a side to side motion or up and down motion ensuring all surfaces have an even coating.
  • Allow the spray to cure for at least three minutes then wipe down the sprayed surfaces using a no-lint rag to remove any excessive spray and to ensure all surfaces have been thoroughly treated.
  • When treating carpets, adjust the spray to allow proper wetting of the carpet. Apply as described above and let carpet dry.

FAQ’s

Q: What can I apply SurfaceAide XL to?
A: SurfaceAide XL can be applied to any hard. It’s ideal for high-touch surfaces or areas that are susceptible to the growth of bacteria, mold and fungi.  It can be applied to porous surfaces; however it will require more product.
Q: What happens if I treat a toy or desktop with SurfaceAide XL and a child licks it or puts it in his/her mouth?
A: SurfaceAide XL creates a non-toxic coating on surfaces that will not harm anyone if licked or chewed on.
Q: If I can’t afford to treat every inch of my building or house with SurfaceAide XL is it even worth doing?
A: Absolutely! We recommend SurfaceAide XL be applied to high-volume touch point, such as desks or door knobs, and areas that are more susceptible to the growth of bacteria, mold and fungi, such as a damp room.
Q: After treating a surface with SurfaceAide XL, do I still have to clean the surface regularly?
A: Yes. SurfaceAide XL creates an antimicrobial coating on surface that continually inhibits the growth of awide range of microbial contaminants for three months. However, you should still clean and disinfect the surface as you normally do to further enhance the effectiveness of SurfaceAide® XL and maintain surface hygiene.
Q: Will bleach or other harsh cleaning chemicals ruin the antimicrobial coating created by SurfaceAide XL?
A: No. While we recommend using the cleaner disinfectant SurfaceClean™ for normal maintenance cleaning, other cleaners or sanitizers will not affect SurfaceAide XL’s Antimicrobial barrier.
Q: You say that SurfaceAide XL creates an environmentally friendly, non-toxic antimicrobial barrier on surfaces. What does this really mean?
A: The antimicrobial coating created by SurfaceAide XL is considered the world’s most environmentally friendly because it does need to leach off the surface to destroy the cell wall of microorganisms like bacteria or mold. Other non-toxic antimicrobial products must leach off the surfaces to work in order to poison cells with heavy metals such as silver or copper. Each time leaching antimicrobials poison a cell, a small amount of that metal comes off and remains on the surface and enters the environment. This leaching/non-leaching comparison also explains why SurfaceAide XL lasts longer and performs better than other long-lasting antimicrobial products.
