nVIRO Shield® FAQs

1) Will these products kill my pets or harm them in any way?

Absolutely not. This system utilizes EPA-registered products that comprise botanicals and are gentle to humans and animals alike, and there are no known allergens in them.

2) Will the products affect my allergies?

There are no known allergens in these products. The green and yellow products leave behind a light lemon scent, and the red product, which is for emergency use only, has a hydrogen peroxide scent.

3) How much downtime is there after spraying?

None. You may immediately live in and enjoy your newly treated space as soon as we’re finished.

4) How long will it take to apply the nVIRO Shield® system?

The process from start to finish completely depends on the square footage of the area being treated as well as the amount of contents in the area, but it would typically take about 1 hour to apply the 2 main products in a 2,000sqft space.

5) Will you give me an estimate of time and cost prior to starting the application process?

Of course. An estimate will be provided up front.

6) Are the products safe to spray on electronics and soft goods (cushions, pillows, etc.)?

Yes. The only products we don’t recommend spraying are food and utensils or dishes, as we wouldn’t want to leave any sort of unusual or unfavorable flavor in your mouth!

7) Does spraying nVIRO Shield® products mean I will never get sick again?

While nVIRO Shield® helps to protect your environment with revolutionary disinfectant technology, the products cannot protect you from picking up bacteria when you are out in public. It will, however, provide protection against organisms that normally grow rather quickly from doing so, due to the long-lasting protection of our green Photocatalytic Protective Sealant product.

8) How long should I wait in between sprayings?

In general, our products will provide protection for 3 months. Therefore, we recommend having the system re-applied every quarter. In areas such as high-traffic bathrooms, however, we recommend spraying at least our quick-hitting disinfectant every 30 days, while spraying our long-lasting Photocatalytic Protective Sealant every 3 months as well.

Note: For healthcare facilities – We recommend that the first spray include all 3 product applications to ensure the utmost protection. Then, we would recommend setting up a maintenance plan to apply our green and yellow products every 3 months, and only spraying the red again in the event of an outbreak.

9) How do I know that nVIRO Shield™ works?

Even though this system is new to the St. Louis market, we have plenty of case studies and laboratory research and tests to show that the system decreases virus and bacteria growth. If you wish to see any of our studies on the product, we’d be proud to share them!

10) Is this system covered by insurance?


11) Are the products registered by the EPA?

Our broad spectrum disinfectant (comprised of silver & citric acid) and our sanitizer (comprised of silver, hydrogen peroxide, and peroxyacetic acid) are both EPA-registered. Our final product, the Photocatalyic Protective Sealant, is such a gentle botanical that it does not require registration by the EPA.

12) Do I need to wear a mask or any sort of protective clothing after this has been sprayed?

Only if you want to. While the products are completely safe for humans and animals, the light lemon odor may still be bothersome. If so, you are welcome to air the area out by opening windows or turning on fans. We only recommend that windows stay shut and fans stay off during application so we can be sure the products are applied effectively.

13) Do I need to wipe surfaces off after they’re sprayed?

No. In fact, we recommend leaving surfaces alone until they need to be hand-cleaned again, so that the protective barriers can really get to work. We will, however, wipe down granite and some wood surfaces after spraying, as the pharmaceutical-grade citrus in the products tends to leave a tacky residue on those specific surfaces.

14) Do I need to continue cleaning treated areas as normal, or does nVIRO Shield® remove that need altogether?

You should continue cleaning all treated areas as you normally would, by wiping down visible debris regularly. Doing so only helps nVIRO Shield’s® protective power by removing barriers. nVIRO Shield® kills bacteria smaller than the eye can see – it is not formulated to break through large pieces of debris or bodily fluids, so regular cleaning is still recommended.
