Spray it on or wash it in.
Becomes active within 3 minutes of application and starts to work as soon as microorganisms come into contact with the treated surface.
It then works continuously to maintain a consistently lower bio-burden than would be expected on a surface without SparGuard protection.
Normal cleaning of the treated surfaces is necessary in order for SparGuard’s antimicrobial spikes to continue their effectiveness.
Dirt build-up, paint, dead microbes, etc. can cover the treatment prohibiting it from killing microorganisms.

Scientists swabbed 43 hospital curtains twice a week for three weeks. They analyzed 180 samples, and found germs on 119.
Twenty-six percent of curtains tested positive for the potentially deadly antibiotic-resistant Staphylococcus aureus bacteria known as MRSA, and 44 percent tested positive for a form of Enterococcus bacteria - some of which were antibiotic resistant.
Researchers also placed 13 new curtains in a hospital for the study. Within a week, 12 were contaminated.
