Let's Get Started

Motorola Radio Decontamination Process

The following is official cleaning process for Motorola radios abridged from this document. Please check with your specific radio vendor for detailed instructions:

General Cleaning

For general cleaning, Motorola Solutions recommends mixing one tablespoon of mild dishwashing detergent to one gallon of water (0.5% solution) to clean the external surfaces of the radio. The solution should be applied sparingly with a stiff, non-metallic, short bristled brush, making sure excess detergent does not get entrapped near the connectors, controls or crevices. Do not submerge the radio in the detergent solution. Place the radio under a faucet for rinsing. The radio should then be dried thoroughly with a soft, lint free cloth.


An alternative cleaning method is to wipe the housing plastic down with over-the-counter isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) with no more than 90% isopropyl alcohol concentration. When cleaning with isopropyl alcohol, the alcohol should never be applied directly to the radio. It should be applied to a rag first, then the radio can be wiped down by the rag. Avoid rubbing label or adhesive areas with the alcohol-soaked rag.


If there is a risk that the radio and attached accessories may have been exposed to harmful pathogens or carcinogens, the following cleaners have been approved for use on APX series portable radios. For maximum efficacy, it is recommended that the contaminated radio first receive a “general cleaning” as detailed above. Then:

– For pathogen decontamination, apply “Zep DZ-7” per manufacturer’s instructions

– For carcinogen decontamination, wipe down the radio with either “Hygenall FieldWipes” or “Enspire Fire Wipes” per the manufacturer’s instructions

IMPORTANT: Motorola Solutions, Inc. is unable to, and did not, determine whether any particular cleaning product is effective in removing specific foreign substances (including viruses) from the radio. However, the above cleaners and processes have been approved for use by Motorola Solutions, Inc. related to their less degrading effect on the physical radio. Please consult the chemical manufacturer’s documentation for specifics on cleaning product efficacy with regards to foreign substances (such as viruses).

Note: We do not recommend cleaning with chlorine-based solvents, as they may deteriorate the plating used to protect the exposed metal chassis.

Qualify that no one who has returned from a Warning Level 2 or 3 location or who has had close contact with anyone potentially exposed to the COVID-19 virus is being dispatched.

JVC KENWOOD Radio & Accessories Cleaning Process

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, JVC KENWOOD is providing recommended cleaning and disinfecting instructions for Kenwood radios and accessories to assist with general hygiene guidelines set forth by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

General Cleaning

1. Remove dust and dirt from surfaces using a clean, soft cloth. If additional effort is required to remove dust and dirt, a non-metallic brush may be used to loosen dirt and debris.

2. Apply a 0.5% detergent-water solution (ex: natural detergent or mild dishwashing soap) or a 70-80% disinfecting ethanol* solution to a clean, soft damp cloth and wipe down all surfaces. If using a detergent-water solution, distilled water is recommended.

3. Dry all surfaces using a soft clean cloth paying close attention to terminals and connectors. 

4. Inspect the radio to make sure no cleaning solution remains trapped near connectors or inside terminal cracks or crevices. 

* The majority of commercially available disinfecting ethanol is diluted to a 70-80% solution. Please check the dilution ratio before using to clean/disinfect radio or accessory surfaces.

Important Note

JVC KENWOOD is unable to, and did not, determine whether any particular cleaning product is effective in removing specific foreign substances from a device, nor whether any disinfectant will remove all germs or viruses. Please consult the chemical manufacturer’s documentation for specifics on cleaning product efficacy with regards to foreign substances (such as viruses).
