University Testing Proves Electro-Shield’s Effectivity Against COVID-19

  • The University of Melbourne’s Department of Microbiology and Immunology laboratory testing has shown Healthguard® AMIC (the active ingredient in Electro-Shield) to be effective at destroying Human Strain SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19).
  • Electro-Shield is included in every Electrodry carpet and upholstery cleaning service at no additional charge.
  • Book a service now and receive a bottle of Electro-Shield hand sanitiser (which contains Healthguard® AMIC) for free, while stocks last (exclusive to VIC).

The testing of Healthguard® AMIC was undertaken at the Molecular Virology Laboratory, Department of Microbiology and Immunology, Doherty Institute for Infection and Immunity at The University of Melbourne.

The product fared extremely well in comparison to the many other antiseptic agents that the laboratory has tested for effectivity against SARS-CoV-2.

“The Healthguard embedded treated fabric showed significant viricidal activity against SARS-CoV-2 within 10 minutes and completely abolished the ability for the virus to be infectious within an hour.”

Professor Damian Purcell, Head of the Molecular Virology Laboratory


“This particular product has shown superior activity compared to other products tested. We are proud to present [this product] to the market in a time of great need, a proven non-invasive preventative healthcare product that assists in combating the COVID-19 pandemic 24/7.”

Dr Christopher Harvey, President of HealthGuard

About Electro-Shield

  • Electro-Shield will bond to textiles, such as carpet and upholstery, providing protection against micro-organisms for up to 20 washes from application, bringing 24/7 peace of mind.
  • It is residually active, meaning it continues to work from the time of application. The effectiveness of other disinfecting products usually dissipates within seconds or minutes.
  • Our technicians are trained in the application of Electro-Shield. They will spray the product and groom afterwards to ensure it is comprehensively applied for optimum effectiveness.
