Q.T.® Plus, anEPA-registered hospital grade disinfectant is now available for the Hillyard Cleaning Companion® System!

Q.T. Plus is effective against many bacteria and viruses including:

  • Ebola
  • Entervirus D68
  • Norovirus
  • MRSA

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Q.T. Plus meets the Center for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) criteria for use against the Ebola virus. Additionally, based upon guidance from the CDC, Q.T. Plus meets the CDC's recommendation for disinfectation of Enterovirus D68 on hard, non-porous surfaces. 

It is necessary to follow the specific use instructions on the label for each disinfectant in order for the disinfectant to be effective. 

According to the CDC, the product label will not specifically mention effectiveness against Enterovirus D68 or the Ebola virus. Instead, it will mention effectiveness against a different, non-enveloped virus, such as norovirus. The product's label use instructions for the non-enveloped virus or viruses should be followed. 

Blake Roth, Cleaning Companion Product Manager states, " Q.T. Plus has a higher pH, which helps remove tough soils that typical neutral disinfectants cannot remove. And, it will be a valuable tool for our customers with Cleaning Companions who want a disinfectant effective against Ebola and Enterovirus D68." 

Q.T. Plus for the Cleaning Companion is in stock and available to order.
