How Does Electro-Shield Work?
Electrodry now includes Electro-Shield™ in your carpet dry cleaning and upholstery cleaning service at no additional charge.
Electro-Shield™ is a residually active sanitising agent, which kills 99.9% of bacteria and a broad spectrum of germs and other micro-organisms.
Electro-Shield’s key active ingredient HealthGuard® AMIC will actively sanitise for up to 4 months. Most sanitising agents lose effectiveness within seconds or minutes following application.
Is Electro-Shield effective against viruses?
Electro-Shield demonstrated a 99.94% anti-viral effectivity rate in recent international laboratory testing, indicating Electro-Shield is excellent at combating viruses. Further testing is currently being performed at a prominent Australian testing facility as part of our ongoing research and development process.
Electro-Shield is applied and sold as a disinfectant with no specific claims as to anti-viral effectivity. We do not recommend that an Electrodry service with an Electro-Shield application be purchased for the purpose of an anti-viral treatment until Electro-Shield is registered with the Therapeutic Goods Administration for that specific purpose.
What is Healthguard?
Healthguard® AMIC was released in March 2020 as part of the Healthguard® product range, which is researched, developed, manufactured and sold by an Australian company named Global Speciality Chemicals Pty. Ltd.
The company specialises in commercialising biotech solutions for preventative healthcare. They manufacture safe and innovative products to treat bed bugs, dust-mites, mosquitoes, bacteria, mould and germs.
HealthGuard® products are proven and tested by independent government accredited testing agencies.
Healthguard® AMIC is the active ingredient in Electro-Shield, providing ongoing protection for your family against germs, bacteria and mould.

The performance of Electro-Shield™ will dissipate over time and with regular wear.

Electro-Shield™ will last longer on carpets and textiles that are kept clean. Abrasive dry soils and oily soils will impact the long-term effectiveness of Electro-Shield™. Accordingly, regular vacuuming is important and increased application frequency may be appropriate in a location with higher levels of soiling.
