Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

At the EPA, products used to kill viruses and bacteria on surfaces are registered as antimicrobial pesticides. Sanitizers and disinfectants are two types of antimicrobial pesticides. Cleaning products must be registered by EPA if they make pesticidal or disinfection claims on their labeling, such as controlling a pest, bacteria or virus. Surface disinfectant products are subject to more rigorous testing requirements and must clear a higher bar for effectiveness than surface sanitizing products. There are many products registered as both sanitizers and disinfectants because they've been tested using both standards. These products are eligible for inclusion on EPA’s List N.

National Sanitization Foundation (NSF)

NSF, National Sanitation Foundation, is a non-profit organization founded in 1944, whose goal was to create standards for food safety and sanitation to promote public health. When you purchase NSF certified foodservice products, it means: • The manufacturer of foodservice products uses only FDA approved raw materials • Products passed numerous NSF testing for material safety, design, construction, and product performance • A guarantee that harmful chemicals won’t seep into and contaminate the food of your customers

Carpet and Rug Cleaning Institute (CRI)

The CRI Seal of Approval program was launched in 2004 to test the cleaning effectiveness of spot removers, pre-spray, and in-tank cleaning chemicals. CRI uses scientifically accredited cleaning standards to identify which cleaning solutions work best. To earn the Seal of Approval, spot removers and pre-spray/in-tank cleaning solutions are tested on the following criteria: Overall cleaning effectiveness, rate of resoiling, pH levels, surface texture change, optical brighteners, and colorfastness.

Contains No Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs)

Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) are a group of odorless manufactured chemicals. Because they damage the earth’s ozone layer, CFCs have been banned since 1996. Before CFCs products were banned, they were used in aerosols, refrigerators, air conditioners, foam food packaging, and fire extinguishers. Prior to 2009, CFCs were used in inhalers to control asthma. The last two types of CFC inhalers were phased out in 2013. CFCs are also greenhouse gases that affects the environment by contributing to global warming.

SafeClean Designated

SafeClean® is a long time trusted designation for cleaning solutions formulated with the latest technology in environmentally preferable “green” technology. SafeClean® designated formulations meet or exceed industry ingredient guidelines for green cleaning solutions. The SafeClean designation goes well beyond traditional definitions of what a green formula should be like. It takes into consideration utilizing sustainable and renewable ingredients, environmental and health impact footprints on the indoor and outdoor environment, and perhaps the most important consideration of all- removing and extracting the soil from the surface being cleaned.
