Could somebody please demystify for me the use, claims and actual performance (what does it actually accomplish) regarding sanitizers, germicides etc. and porous surfaces like carpet & upholstery.
I am very familiar with the legal claim of sanitizing and understand that these claims cannot be made with porous surfaces - ["To be a registered sanitizer, the test results for a product must show a reduction of at least 99.9% in the number of each test microorganism over the parallel control."]
However when reading these sanitizers labels they only seem to mention the use on nonporous surfaces.
And any other information about them that can help.
- So do they actually work on carpet and upholstery?
- What do they actually accomplish?
- Do they all need to be rinsed out and the ones that don’t, any residual issues or problem with people having a reaction (skin irritation or other etc.) to them?
- And yes, you guessed it- What is allowed to use in CA?
