nVIRO Shield® — what to expect and FAQs

How does nVIRO Shield® work?

Your fully-trained Woodard technician will apply nVIRO Shield® with an electrostatic mister to lightly coat all surfaces first with a Photocatalytic Protective Sealant and then an EPA-registered botanical disinfectant. The positively-charged particles from these solutions surround and adhere to all treated surfaces, ensuring 100% protection from germs, including bacteria, viruses and common allergens.

Why would I need nVIRO Shield® for my home, which I clean regularly?

nVIRO Shield® has proven far more effective than other household or over-the-counter products, killing serious germs and establishing a “shielded” environment for up to 30 days after application. In fact, with regular use of nVIRO Shield®, only wiping down is needed for maintenance in between, so it gets your home cleaner with less work on your part. For more comparison of nVIRO Shield® to other cleaners, read our blog.

How much does the nVIRO Shield® treatment cost?

We are happy to apply this treatment during a regular service visit, or as a separate visit. Cost will depend on the square footage to be treated. Please ask your Woodard associate for a free estimate.

Does my house need to be unoccupied when this treatment is applied?

We ask that the area/level we are treating is unoccupied while we apply the treatment, which typically takes about one hour for a 2,000 square-foot house. As soon as the application is completed, you may return to life as usual.
