HiSurv is a must-have item at home for the New Normal era.
HiSurv is a solution that contains 2% concentrated benzalkonium chloride. It possesses antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal properties, while being non-acidic. This solution is highly effective in disinfecting various surfaces, such as tables, cabinets, sofas, bags, as well as frequently-touched areas like doorknobs, handrails, elevator buttons, and counters.
As stated by the Food and Drug Administration of Thailand, HiSurv has the ability to inhibit viruses, bacteria, and fungi of different strains, including COVID-19, with an efficacy rate of up to 99.9%.
It maintains its disinfection efficiency for a continuous period of 7 days or up to 200 touches per spray with a single wipe.
This makes it suitable for use in residential houses, condominiums, hotels, offices, restaurants, department stores, and other locations where people gather and frequently come into contact with surfaces.

3. removes dirt
How can HiSurv efficiently kill germs?
Benzalkonium Chloride is a cationic surfactant that is neutral to weakly basic (pH 4.8-7.01). It kills microorganisms such as fungi, bacteria, and viruses by damaging their outer and inner cell layers. Benzalkonium Chloride is commonly used as a preservative in cosmetics and medicines, including eye drops, sprays, ear gels, hand sanitizers, wet wipes, shampoos, soaps, and deodorants. It is also utilized as an antiseptic in sore throat lozenges, mouthwashes, skin and wound disinfectants.
According to the Food and Drug Administration of Thailand, a concentration greater than 0.05% can eliminate COVID-19. Furthermore, a concentration of 0.20% can eliminate 99.99% of COVID-19 within 15 seconds, as demonstrated in research conducted by Brigham Young University, a private research university in the United States. Therefore, the HiSurv solution, which contains a concentration of 2% Benzalkonium Chloride, can efficiently eliminate COVID-19 and other pathogens.
When spraying HiSurv onto object surfaces and wiping them, the solution forms a clear film that coats the surfaces and provides antiseptic effects. Once coated with HiSurv, viruses, bacteria, and fungi that come into contact with the surfaces will be immediately killed. It can also be safely used to remove dirt from leather bags and wooden furniture without causing corrosion due to its non-acidic nature.
A single application of HiSurv provides protection against germs on object surfaces for up to 7 days. In areas that are frequently touched, such as doorknobs, handrails, elevator buttons, counters, etc., HiSurv can withstand up to 200 touches before needing reapplication.
This video shows how to use HiSurv to disinfect and remove dirts from object surfaces such as leather sofas, wooden tables, leather bags, PVC products, including kitchen counters.
How safe is HiSurv for users?
A journal published by the Thai Hospital Pharmacy Association (Thailand), affiliated with Mahidol University, states that Benzalkonium Chloride concentrations exceeding 7.5% can be harmful to living tissues. Therefore, it can be concluded that HiSurv, which contains 2% Benzalkonium Chloride, is not harmful to users.

For household use
Comparison of HiSurv and 70% alcohol
Using a 550 ml focky-head spray bottle of HiSurv, priced at 350 baht, can provide approximately 7,500 uses, resulting in a cost of 0.05 baht per use.
On the other hand, using a 500 ml focky-head spray bottle of 70% alcohol, priced at 70 baht, can also provide approximately 7,500 uses, costing 0.009 baht per use.
If you intend to clean a 15-inch computer screen that is frequently touched, using HiSurv would require approximately 2 sprays per cleaning session, which will maintain the disinfection effects for up to 7 days. The cost for each cleaning would be around 0.35 baht.
On the other hand, if you choose to use 70% alcohol, you would also need to spray it 2 times per cleaning session. However, the disinfectant effects of alcohol do not last as long; they only remain effective immediately after application. This means that if someone touches the screen once, you would need to spray it with alcohol again to disinfect it. Additionally, even in the absence of direct contact, germs can still settle on the surface. Usually, there is no continuous disinfection. Therefore, within a 7-day period, if you opt to use alcohol for surface cleaning, you would need to use it multiple times, resulting in higher costs compared to using HiSurv.
For use in offices, residences, hotels, or places with frequent touches and big crowds
Suppose there is a high-contact area of 100 square meters.
If we choose to use the HiSurv solution, we can hire a housekeeper to clean each point per day, which would cost approximately 394 baht per day (while still allowing the housekeeper to perform other tasks). Assuming there are 10 points that require 3 sprays each, the total number of sprays per day would be 30, resulting in a cost of approximately 1.5 baht per spray.
Therefore, the total expenses for employing a housekeeper to clean surfaces using the HiSurv solution would amount to 394 + 1.5 = 395.5 baht per day.
If we use 70% alcohol or other cleaning products, we need to hire approximately 8 cleaning staff members per day to disinfect various areas at least every hour. This will cost about 1,070 baht per day, and it may not leave them with enough time to complete other tasks. Assuming there are 10 locations that require 3 sprays each and must be cleaned every hour from 8:00 to 17:00 (a total of 9 hours), there will be a total of 270 sprays per day. The cost per spray will be approximately 2.43 THB.
Therefore, the total expense of using a maid to wipe and clean with alcohol is 1,070 + 2.43 = 1,072.43 baht per day.
