Keeping your house nice and clean can reduce allergy and asthma triggers in your home. But before you reach for your commercialised spray bottle, have a look at the ingredients… Many traditional cleaning products contain Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s). Due to this, traditional store-bought cleaning products can irritate skin, respiratory systems, allergies and contribute to indoor air pollution.
The answer to cleaning with allergy and asthma sufferers in the house is enzyme cleaning products! You will never go back to your old products after learning about the benefits of this ultimate cleaner.
These products that use “good” bacteria to digest waste, soils, stains and foul odours. The bacteria do this by producing enzymes specifically designed to break down certain molecules into smaller pieces. These smaller pieces become “food” for the bacteria. The bacteria consume these soils and break them down into two basic compounds: carbon dioxide and water. The bacteria grow in numbers and continue to break down the soils until their “food” supply is gone. The bacteria population levels off or decreases and can be washed away during the next cleaning or continue to work against new soils.
It is important to know that the enzymes in these cleaners are not living things and cannot grow or reproduce on their own.
If you or your kids suffer from asthma, allergies or sensitive skin, enzyme cleaners will change your life.
1. They are often safer for the environment and human health compared to other traditional chemical products.
2. The “good” bacteria can penetrate into very small cracks and crevices, eliminate soils and foul odours that traditional chemicals often cannot remove.
3. The bacteria and enzymes are left as residuals and can keep working for up to 80 hours after application, ensuring that soils and foul odours are fully removed.
4. Through natural competition for food and resources, the “good” bacteria can help to displace pathogenic (disease-causing) bacteria.
Enzyme cleaners are great in various applications. They can be used as general surface cleaners, restroom cleaners, carpet spotters, odour eliminators, and more. Enzyme cleaners are especially good for use in restrooms because they can eliminate foul odours caused from urine, and they can easily penetrate into grouted surfaces to remove soils and foul odours that have worked their way into the grout.
