Are there any disadvantages?

Category: GENERAL

Unlike many other sanitation chemicals, hypochlorous acid does not have an ongoing antimicrobial effect. In other words, once it lands on a surface, it reacts with any germs or organic matter on that surface and then immediately deactivates. This is good and bad. It is good because it allows for sanitation without requiring a post-rinse because no toxic chemicals are left behind. The disadvantage is that it has to be continuously applied.
