Simply place the mat inside your home by the front or back door, so that you or your pet step onto the mat after coming in from outside.
How do I use CopperFoot Mat & CopperPaw Mat?
How does it work?
Both CopperFoot Mat and CopperPaw Mat are fabricated using CuVerro Shield™ by Aereus Technologies which works 24/7 to kill bacteria*, never washing out or wearing away, making CuVerro Shield™ ideally suited for commonly touched surfaces where bacteria is a concern. It is NOT HARMFUL to humans or pets.
Is the Copper tested and Scientifically Proven to work?
In 2008, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved the registration of 275 antimicrobial copper alloys. By 2011, the number increased to 355**. This allowed a public health claim that CuVerro® copper and its alloys are capable of killing harmful, potentially deadly bacteria*. CuVerro® copper is the first class of solid surface material to receive this type of EPA registration**.**Copper.org/education/c-facts/antimicrobial/print-category.html
Does the Copper stop working?
No. Copper’s bactericidal effect does not diminish, and it works 24/7. Copper’s ‘natural patina’ does not diminish its effectiveness and it does not degrade over time. CuVerro Shield™ by Aereus Technologies is also 100% recyclable; is both antibacterial* and bactericidal* which means it is capable of destroying, killing or inhibiting the growth of disease-causing microorganisms.
How do I clean the mat?
Use soap and water and the abrasive side of a sponge to clean the mats. The cleaner the mats are, the more effective the copper is in killing the bacteria*. Do not leave a coat of disinfectants on the mat since that interferes with the bactericidal effects of the copper.
How long does it take to kill the bacteria?
Surfaces made with CuVerro Shield™ by Aereus Technologies work continuously to kill more than 99.9% of bacteria*, 24 hours a day, even after repeated contamination.
