You may be asking, ‘What is a Bio-Enzymatic Cleaner?’ If so, you’re not the first. Let’s take a closer look at what these products are and how they perform. BIO Cleaners are formulated specifically to dispose of soils safely, economically and rapidly. They contain the necessary quality and quantity of specific non-pathogenic enzyme systems, both aerobic and anaerobic bacteria, and microbial nutrients. BIO Cleaners work quickly and efficiently to digest chemical and organic waste with no odor or noxious gas.
What is Bacterial Digestion?
Bacterial digestion is the process of bacteria consuming organic matter. Using a complex chemical reaction, the organic waste is metabolized down to water and carbon dioxide, providing the bacteria with energy to sustain their life. The end result of this process; organic waste is consumed, used up, and is no longer present to produce odor pollution or unsightly soil and contaminants.
What is an enzyme and how does it aid in digestion by the bacteria?
An enzyme is a chemical catalyst that breaks up long, complex waste molecules into smaller, simpler pieces. The smaller, broken up pieces can then be digested directly by the bacteria. Enzymes are not living things, and they cannot grow or reproduce themselves. They are a type of protein that are manufactured and used by bacteria in order to digest waste. When added to the organic waste, enzymes immediately go to work breaking down the waste. The bacteria are able to consume these fragments immediately. The growing bacteria will then start to reproduce and generate their own enzymes, thus keeping the cycle going.
Why use Bio-Enzymatic Cleaners?
There are five main reasons for using BIO Cleaners and odor control products:
- BIO Cleaners are safer for the environment and safer for human health than traditional chemical
cleaners and odor control products
- BIO Cleaners are highly concentrated, supporting a lower after dilution cost
- BIO Cleaners provide residual cleaning up to 80 hours after application
- BIO Cleaners are UL Ecologo Certified Products
- BIO Cleaners help to displace unknown, potentially “pathogenic” (disease causing) bacteria with known, healthy microorganisms and in this way contribute to better human health
Where can Bio-Enzymatic Cleaners be used?
Bio-enzymatic cleaners are recommended for areas where odor and grease are prominent, such as kitchens and washrooms. Numerous products are available, including: odor eliminators, urinal block cleaners and deodorizers, washroom cleaners, drain maintainers and even floor degreasers. These products can be used in both a business setting and at home. For a full list of our recently improved Bio-Enzymatic Enviro-Solutions products check out the flyer.
