CMBM’S Preferred Disinfection Cleaning Mist TGA Approved to Kill COVID-19

The Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has approved Nanocyn® Disinfectant & Sanitiser to be effective in the elimination of Coronavirus within 30 seconds of contact time.

CMBM is pleased to announce that our infection cleaning solution, Nanocyn®, has been approved by the TGA as the first all-natural disinfectant of its type in Australia to kill and eliminate SARS- CoV-2 (COVID-19) within just 30 seconds of contact.

This approval comes at a significant point for Queensland businesses as we enter Stage 1 of the state’s easing of restrictions.

CMBM & Nanocyn®

CMBM offer Nanocyn® misting as part of our range of preventive cleaning solutions, which include pre-open cleaning to eliminate dormant bacteria, and daily misting to prevent build up of pathogens and germs on the premises. If you are reopening your premises for business, please contact us to discuss how we can assist in keeping your employees and customers safe from COVID-19.

CMBM choose to use Nanocyn® because of its 0-0-0-A safety profile and patented Microcyn® Technology, which is formulated to mimic the oxygen and chlorine composition (HOCI) found in the human immune system. This makes Nanocyn 100% non-toxic and non-corrosive, and 100% biodegradable and pH-neutral.

30-Second COVID-19 Kill Time

The 30 seconds kill time against Coronavirus is a key factor in ensuring efficient and effective infectious cleaning. Most disinfectants require a 10 minute or longer exposure time to eliminate viruses, which runs the risk of others being exposed to the virus during this time period.

Hospital-Grade Disinfectant

Nanocyn® is registered with the TGA as a hospital-grade disinfectant with claims, and has been used in a wide range of environments, including hospitals, military sites, aged care facilities, childcare sites, offices and more.

Nanocyn® is 100%:

  • Non-Toxic
  • Non-corrosive
  • Biodegradable
  • Alcohol- free
  • Made with natural ingredients
  • pH neutral

Preventing Germ Spread in the Workplace

Employee absenteeism due to sickness can cost your business more than just the expense of sick leave and the productivity lost.

On average, sick leave was estimated to have cost Queensland SMEs an average of $20,510 in productivity lost each year in 2017. This includes the loss of current and future earnings, and the flow-on effects of other employees becoming sick as a result of individuals coming into work while unwell and spreading germs. Lost productivity can also include lower quality productivity, time wastage and poor morale.

Research has shown that healthy employees tend to be better at decision-making and time utilisation, and have better employee morale. This, in turn, can attract other quality workers and signal to your clients and visitors that your business values professionalism, dignity and respect.

Here are some measures you can take to prevent germ spread in your workplace:

  • Place automatic hand sanitiser dispensers near touch points and in the reception area. Touch points are surfaces that are frequently touched by multiple people throughout the day, such as light switches, elevator buttons and the microwave.
  • Promote good hygiene practices by placing posters in the toilets and kitchen areas reminding your employees to wash their hands after using the bathroom and prior to touching food.
  • Set the standard of cleanliness by maintaining regular professional cleaning for your office, toilets and kitchen facilities, as well as having regular outbreak cleaning fumigations. Regular cleaning can create a more positive company culture as well as long-term cost savings.
  • Provide desk wipes to encourage regular wiping down of keyboards, phones, and other frequently touched surfaces.
  • Adapt flexible working arrangements and send sick employees home. Coming into work while sick is known as presenteeism, and it can actually increase absenteeism costs in the long run by infecting other employees and reducing productivity levels.

If your workplace has issues with absenteeism, workplace illness and infection control, our cleaning team can assist you with regular professional cleaning and outbreak cleaning via our Nanocyn Disinfectant & Sanitiser® Spray. Contact us today for a complimentary quote.


What is Outbreak Cleaning?

Also known as Infection Control Cleaning or Cold & Flu Infection Cleaning, Outbreak Cleaning focuses on preventing the spread of germs, such as common colds and the flu. This is done by containing, controlling and eliminating pathogens (a bacterium, virus or other microorganism that can cause disease).

Do I need Outbreak Cleaning?

While general cleaning is important for maintaining the basic hygiene and the physical cleanliness of your business by removing dirt, grime and dust, Outbreak Cleaning goes a step further by killing airborne pathogens, rendering mutations and germ spread impossible.

Many businesses with a naturally higher risk of illness, such as childcare centres, aged care facilities and medical facilities, benefit greatly from regular outbreak cleaning in addition to their general cleaning program.

How does Outbreak Cleaning work?

The flu and cold are generally spread when someone who is sick leaves infectious ‘droplets’ in the air from coughing, sneezing and talking. These droplets send sprays into the surrounding area and can linger if not properly disinfected.

Outbreak Cleaning is carried out via a fumigation system which dispels a disinfectant mist into the air to destroy these infectious droplets.

CMBM choose to use Nanocyn Disinfectant & Sanitiser® due to its non-toxic, non-corrosive and environmentally friendly properties. While other outbreak cleaning sanitisers can contain harmful chemicals and require the room to be empty during and immediately after application, Nanocyn is comprised of 100% natural properties and can even be used without requiring special protective equipment, making it the safest choice for outbreak cleaning.

Should my professional cleaner be providing Outbreak Cleaning?

While Outbreak Cleaning is separate to general cleaning, many cleaning providers may offer a comprehensive cleaning package which includes regular disinfectant fumigations.
