How it Works

Viruses are enclosed by a lipid membrane (a fat like substance,) this membrane is used by the virus to attach itself to the host cell, the virus then penetrates the host cell and replicates itself. Viruses are fragile and susceptible to changes in temperature, pH levels and disinfectant.

Our solutions works by irreversibly binding, penetrating and immobilising bacteria, viruses and fungi so that they cannot replicate, leaving surfaces disinfected, sanitised and safe to use. It is completely non-toxic, non-irritant and non-corrosive. This also means it is harmless to humans and animals.

Rubies takes every step to ensure a discreet and highly efficient service is provided, designed to minimise disruption to both you and your business.
