Carousel Cleaners and Disinfectants

Information on this page was collected by our Carousel Collaborative, a group of carousel owners and operators who have volunteered to provide ideas for carousel operation during the Covid-19 pandemic.

During this pandemic, carousels that are available for public use must be sanitized frequently. Below is a list of cleaners currently in use by some of the carousels that are in operation at this time.

Important Note!
Please research each product carefully and choose the product(s) that meet your state's requirements, and that are safe and appropriate for your specific carousel. The information below is provided for information only. The NCA does not endorse or recommend these products in any manner.

Also note that carousels must comply with guidelines or regulations by any appropriate federal, state or local authorities.

In addition to being bactericidal against Staphylococcus aureus (Staph), Salmonella enterica, Pseudomonas aeruginosa & Escherichia coli (E-coli), it is also virucidal against Rhinovirus (the common cold virus) and Influenza A including the Pandemic 2009 H1N1 on hard, non-porous, inanimate surfaces.

From the manufacturer:

KOC-86 self-sanitizing coating is a water-based photo catalyst Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) solution. It can be applied to all surfaces: wood, concrete, vinyl, fabric, etc. It works 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It slowly destroys any microorganism that touches the surface such as viruses, bacteria, mold, fungi, or any other microorganism for 6 months. UV light and TiO2 have been used as a disinfectant in our drinking water for over 25 years. The UV light triggers sterilization from the TiO2. Our patent-pending process uses a 2-step method to provide a self-sanitizing coating that adheres to all surfaces which are activated by UV light 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
