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?
Can I use CopperFoot™ Mats or CopperPaw Mats outside?
CopperFoot Mat and CopperPaw Mat are manufactured with antibacterial copper. It is an INDOOR MAT. Also, if it is exposed to the sun’s rays, due to being a metal surface, it will get HOT and can cause burns and pain. DO NOT STEP ON THE MAT SURFACE IF IT IS EXPOSED TO THE SUN to prevent any injury.
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. In some cases up to two hours to kill the bacteria. You do not need to stand on the mat for two hours, simply step on and step off. The bacteria* killing process begins immediately.
How do you clean it? (DON'T USE BLEACH!)
No Lysol or bleach. Only soap and water using the hard surface of a sponge. Or citric acid powder mixed with water.Not an outdoor mat!
Ready to get rid of bacteria* ? With CopperFoot and CopperPaw Mats you won’t need to worry about 99.9% of bacteria*. Our Mats are manufactured using EPA registered CuVerro Shield copper by Aereus Technologies which kills 99.9% of bacteria*. Antibacterial copper products are proven deterrents against bacteria*. The science behind copper-to-microbe interplay is complex, but the results are straightforward and easy to understand. Copper ions on the surface of our copper antimicrobial products interact with the bacterium’s outer membrane, inhibit normal cell function, and render the bacterium completely broken. Choose from three antibacterial copper mats: CopperFoot Mat™ for your homes, offices, gyms, daycare centers, hospital rooms, nursing homes and more. CopperPaw Mat for small dogs and cat litter boxes. CopperPaw Mat Large for large dogs.
