6 reasons why you should make the switch to Safe4 disinfectant

Safe4 was developed back in the 1990s as a safe alternative to harsh surface disinfectants for use in the veterinary and animal care sectors.

The founders of Safe4 worked for many years to formulate a cost-effective disinfectant cleaner that was completely safe for staff and the animals in their care, but still highly effective against harmful viruses and bacteria.

Not surprisingly, since its arrival in Australia 6 years ago, more and more vet clinics, zoos, animal shelters, kennels and catteries are making the switch to Safe4. Read on to find out why.

1. You can’t beat the Safe4 formula

We often get asked for the exact formulation of Safe4. But like the Colonel’s secret herbs and spices, we can’t give you the recipe! However, we are more than happy to provide a full list of the active ingredients.

With Safe4, it’s almost just as important as what’s not in our product as what is. Safe4 does NOT contain any harmful phenols, aldehydes, or alcohol. And when diluted, it has a neutral PH of approximately 7. In a nutshell, this means that our disinfectant is non-toxic, non-staining and a non-irritant.

2. It won’t irritate your eyes or throat

We spend much of our time out on the road visiting vet clinics, animal shelters and boarding facilities across Australia. One key piece of feedback we get from staff in all of these places is that Safe4 doesn’t irritate your throat – so there’s no coughing, headaches, or asthma attacks triggered from our product. So, when we say our disinfectant is non-irritant, we mean it!

3. We’ve passed all tests with flying colours

Our disinfectant has been extensively tested by independent laboratories and meets all regulatory and accreditation standards. We pride ourselves on complying with the ever-increasing number of regulations and directives before they become compulsory, to ensure our customers are always in safe hands.

We also have certification from the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medications Authority to sell the product in Australia.

4. Safe4 is highly cost-effective

In addition to being highly effective against viruses and bacteria, Safe4 is the most cost-effective disinfectant on the market that is designed to use in veterinary and animal care environments.

Here’s just one example of how you will save considerable money by choosing Safe4:

  • Safe4 dilution rate for Parvo Virus is 1:100 versus 1:125 for another well-known disinfectant
  • Safe4 25L @ $769.90 used at 1:100 will make 2,500 litres = $0.308 per litre diluted.
  • Other disinfectant 25L @ $1553.00 used at 1:125 will make 3,125 litres = $0.497 per litre diluted.

That’s a saving of $0.189 (19cents) per litre, which adds up pretty quickly over time.

5. It smells great!

Safe4 disinfectant is available in 3 different scents – apple, lavender, fresh mint – as well as an odourless option. This means you can have a sparkling clean and decontaminated environment, without having to put up with a chemical smell.

6. But don’t just take our word for it…

Safe4 is used by a growing number of veterinary clinics, zoos, animal shelters and pet boarding facilities across Australia. We count SeaWorld, some of Australia’s leading universities and vet clinics large and small as our clients.

Here’s what one veterinary clinic had to say about their use of Safe4 disinfectant:

As a veterinary hospital, our professionalism and cleanliness are two of our priorities. Safe4 allows us to ensure our clinic is disinfected up to standard as well as helping us keep our clinic smelling amazing. Our clients often comment on the presentation, cleanliness, and smell of our clinic. Safe4 is easy to use, and we are comfortable using it on a daily basis for general cleaning and for disinfecting when needed.
