BYOTROL24™ is unique.  There is no other household disinfectant cleaner on the market that sanitizes surfaces for a full 24 hours (whereas standard disinfectant products only kill germs for a few minutes).  It has taken five years of intensive research and development work to bring this product to you. Our aim is to bring you these benefits at the lowest cost we can, and the price reflects the investment we have made in this technology and the benefits it brings you in protecting your home like no other product can.

It’s great to hear you would like to join the Byotrol germ-fighting revolution!  Please use the CONTACT US page on this web site to get in touch with us!

ingredients

BYOTROL24™ is rated by the EPA as “practically nontoxic”, the best possible low-toxicity rating and the same rating given to disinfectant cleaners labeled as “natural.” BYOTROL24™ leaves no harsh chemical residue, emits no harmful fumes, and can be used without gloves.

Active ingredients are listed on the BYOTROL24™ product label.  In case you can’t read the small print on the label, here you go:
 
Active Ingredients:
00.324%   1-Decanaminium, N-decyl-N,N-dimethyl-, chloride
00.215%   Alkyl* dimethyl benzyl ammonium chloride *(67%C12, 25%C14, 7%C16, 1% C18)
00.539%   Poly (hexamethylenebiguanide) hydrochloride
98.922%   Other ingredients
100%         Total
 
If you’re curious what’s in the other 98.9%, it’s mostly filtered water, some surfactants to help with cleaning, and a little bit of fragrance (for our fragrance products)..

We do not normally send out Safety Data Sheets to the general public since they are technical documents for professional use.  The information on the product label contains health and safety information transcribed from the Safety Data Sheet and should provide the relevant information for you.

No dyes of any kind are in BYOTROL24™.

BYOTROL24™ contains neither ammonia nor bleach.
 
Bleach is a powerful chemical that can destroy germs.  Unfortunately, bleach can also damage or stain the surfaces in your home.  Bleach also produces harsh, unpleasant fumes that can irritate the eyes, mouth and lungs.  Scientists at Byotrol developed BYOTROL24™ to be bleach-free while delivering strong, effective, and long-lasting germ control.

product usage

What many people do not realize is that unlike dirt and grime, which can take a while to accumulate after cleaning, germs begin growing back almost instantly after a disinfecting treatment with a standard cleaner.  Some bacteria, such as E. coli (Escherichia coli) that cause intestinal infection, can reproduce every 20 minutes.  At this rate of growth, a single bacterium can grow into trillions of bacteria in one day.

Therefore, while surfaces treated with standard cleaning products may look and smell clean, they can become infested with harmful germs within minutes of treatment.

The problem is that typical cleaning and sanitizing products contain germ-fighting agents that evaporate from the surface in a few minutes or get easily removed as people and pets come in contact with surfaces.  This leaves surfaces vulnerable within a matter of minutes to the re-growth or transfer of bugs.
 
Using standard disinfecting products more frequently is not necessarily the answer either.  It makes the germs more resistant and as a result can give rise to super-bugs such as MRSA.
Individual bacteria are too small to see with the naked eye.  Bacteria are up to a thousand times smaller than the human eye can see, and viruses can be ten times smaller again.  So, while dirt and grime can be seen, there is no easy way to check the same for bacteria and viruses which populate virtually every surface of your home.  That is why BYOTROL24™ must pass a range of rigorous, independently run, scientific tests set by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) to demonstrate that the product cleans your home not only of dirt and grime but also bacteria and viruses.
 
With regular use of BYOTROL24™, your home should smell fresher for longer, since BYOTROL24™ is working longer than a standard disinfectant to control the bacteria that produce odors.

For round-the-clock germ control, it’s best to use BYOTROL24™ daily on “high risk” surfaces such as toilet handles, door knobs, and counters since these will be more prone to germ contamination you can pick up with your hands.  Ultimately, how often you clean comes down to your personal needs and habits.

BYOTROL24™ can be used on most hard, non-porous, non-food contact surfaces such as counters, handles, sinks, floors, bathtubs, toilets and other surfaces.
 
We always recommend testing any new surface cleaner in an inconspicuous area first to make sure it’s compatible with the surface.
BYOTROL24™ can be wiped dry or allowed to air dry after application.  After spraying BYOTROL24™, be sure to let the surface stay wet anywhere from 1-10 minutes to allow time for the disinfectant to fight and kill germs.  Here are the recommended surface contact times:
 
VIRUSES – 2009-H1N1 Influenza A virus (1 minute), Coronavirus (1 minute), Respiratory syncytial virus (1 minute), Rotavirus (2 minutes), Feline calicivirus as a surrogate virus for Norovirus (5 minutes).
BACTERIASalmonella enterica (1 minute), Escherichia coli O157:H7 (2 minutes), Listeria monocytogenes (2 minutes), Staphylococcus aureus (2 minutes), Streptococcus pyogenes (2 minutes), Enterobacter aerogenes (5 minutes), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (5 minutes).
FUNGICIDALTrichophyton mentagrophytes (10 minutes).
 
For 24-hour surface sanitizing, allow the surface treated with BYOTROL24™ to remain wet for five minutes before wiping dry.
 
Rinsing a surface treated with BYOTROL24™ is not necessary.  In fact, rinsing a surface will wash away the long-lasting surface sanitizer.
Shake well before use on hard, nonporous, non-food contact surfaces.  Preclean if heavy soil is present.
 
To Disinfect & Deodorize:  Spray on surface until thoroughly wet.  Surface must remain wet for appropriate contact time (see below).  Wipe dry. No rinse required.
 
To Sanitize:  Spray on surface until thoroughly wet.  Let stand for 10 seconds. Wipe dry.
 
To Sanitize for 24 Hours:  Spray on surface until thoroughly wet.  Let stand for 5 minutes. Wipe dry.
 
To Control Mold & Mildew for 7 Days:  Spray on surface until thoroughly wet.  Allow to air dry.
 
Here are the recommended surface contact times to kill different varieties of germs:
 
VIRUSES – 2009-H1N1 Influenza A virus (1 minute), Coronavirus (1 minute), Respiratory syncytial virus (1 minute), Rotavirus (2 minutes), Feline calicivirus as a surrogate virus for Norovirus (5 minutes).
BACTERIASalmonella enterica (1 minute), Escherichia coli O157:H7 (2 minutes), Listeria monocytogenes (2 minutes), Staphylococcus aureus (2 minutes), Streptococcus pyogenes (2 minutes), Enterobacter aerogenes (5 minutes), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (5 minutes).
FUNGICIDALTrichophyton mentagrophytes (10 minutes).
BYOTROL24™ prevents the growth of mold and mildew for 7 days with just one application.  However, if black mold has already been established (a germ called Aspergillus Niger or Brasiliense), removal of black mold requires a strong oxidizing agent such as bleach.  
 
Keep in mind that BYOTROL24™ rinses away with water, so for maximum mold & mildew control, be sure to apply BYOTROL24™ on bath surfaces after showering or bathing.

We suggest that BYOTROL24™ should be used within two years of purchase.

Yes.  The plastic we use for BYOTROL24™ is 100% recyclable.  It’s always a good idea to rinse out any cleaning bottle before offering for recycling.

safety

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rated BYOTROL24™ as “practically nontoxic”.  In fact, BYOTROL24™ is rated with the same low-toxicity classification as household disinfectant cleaners labeled as “natural.”
 
BYOTROL24™ has gone through a rigorous Safety Assessment program involving many tests by independent agencies and evaluations by fully qualified assessors at the EPA.  The EPA’s role is to protect human health and the environment. So, you can rest assured that this product has had the best and tightest scrutiny we can provide. The individual ingredients that you will find in BYOTROL24™ have been used in households throughout the world for years, so while what is in BYOTROL24™ is not unusual, the clever thing about BYOTROL24™ is the proportions we use and how we combine them which leads to its unique 24-hour germ-fighting action.
 
Of course, as with any product – from the food you keep in your fridge to the personal products in your bathroom, and to all the other cleaning products you keep in your home – BYOTROL24™ needs to be stored and used responsibly.  So, we always encourage you to read the label and follow product instructions.

BYOTROL24™ is safe to use around pets and on surfaces with which your animal may come in contact when used as directed.  BYOTROL24™ is not dangerous if it comes in contact with pets’ skin or fur but you should wipe excess amounts off the skin or fur with water.  If swallowed by a pet, call your vet immediately.

BYOTROL24™ does not contain any ingredients that will harm your septic system when used as directed.

Yes.  BYOTROL24™ is safe to use on stone surfaces such as granite and/or marble provided that the stones are sealed. 

BYOTROL24™ is non-corrosive, meaning it will not damage, dry out or corrode common household surfaces.  As a general precaution, we recommend testing an inconspicuous area first when dealing with unsealed stone, painted or unfinished wood or any other surface you are particularly concerned about.

If you have allergies and are sensitive to cleaning products, we recommend testing a very small amount of BYOTROL24™ first before using the product throughout your home.

BYOTROL24™ produces no harsh fumes.  If you are sensitive to fragrances, we strongly recommend testing a small amount of BYOTROL24™ before use.  You may also consider using BYOTROL24™ Fragrance-Free.

Yes.  Surfaces disinfected and sanitized with BYOTROL24™, including high chairs and/or bathtubs, are safe for contact by children.  BYOTROL24™ does not leave any toxic or harmful fumes or residues.
 
Like all disinfectant products, please keep out of reach of children.
Like all germ-fighting disinfectant products, BYOTROL24™ should not be ingested.  Please keep out of reach of children.
 
If BYOTROL24™ is swallowed, dilute with a glass of milk or water and call your doctor or a poison control center immediately.
Don’t panic!  Simply wash your skin thoroughly with soap and water and launder your clothing.
 
The First Aid instructions listed on the product label for BYOTROL24™ advise washing your skin for 15-20 minutes and calling a poison control center.  But don’t worry, this was written with an abundance of caution and safety in mind. In fact, the EPA ranked BYOTROL24™ as one of the least toxic household disinfectant cleaners available today.  In fact, BYOTROL24™ was rated with the same low-toxicity classification as household disinfectant cleaners labeled as “natural.”

BYOTROL24™ will not hurt or constrain the development of your natural immunity.  The natural immune systems which we are born with and develop into adulthood are still one of our best defenses against germs and fighting infections.  Studies have shown that exposure to germs at a young age help develop these systems. And not even the most highly effective disinfectants such as BYOTROL24™ can guarantee a germ-free environment, so the exposure that is necessary to develop our immune systems will still be present.  BYOTROL24™ provides another layer of defense – along with your natural immune system – which helps protect against infections.
