TWO STEP PROCESS CLEANING
Our approaches cleaning in a logical scientific way.
1. First, remove and neutralize unwanted microbes by cleaning away pollutants using our EPA registered Detergent/Disinfectant cleaner. Proper application, coverage and dwell time of our Detergent/Disinfectant antimicrobial will eliminate more than 99.9 % of the unwanted microbial growth that builds up on a hard surface.
2. Second, our Surface Protector is applied to provide a bonded, long-term antimicrobial protective barrier. The Protector works different than the first step. It’s unique charged, mechanical action actually works to inhibiting microbial growth for months or even years on/in specific hard and soft surfaces.
This two-part cleaning and protection system is a unique combination of both innovative procedures and chemistry. Our Microbial Protection System uses scientifically tested and proven chemical formulations to clean, disinfect and provide long-term protection.
The active ingredients in our EPA registered Detergent/Disinfectant are cationic quaternary ammonium chlorides: Alkyl Dimethyl Ammonium Chloride(C12-18) and Alkyl Dimethyl Ethyl Benzyl Ammonium Chloride(C12-14). This hard surface disinfectant is effective against a wide range of harmful organisms. In addition to being a biocidal antimicrobial, they are also good cleaners and deodorizers. Our detergent inactivates target organisms within 10 minutes of application. Product is partially sustainable because a majority of the molecule is a renewable carbon source and is derived from coconut oil.
The EPA registered Surface Protector is an organosilane which provides a cationic, biostatic barrier of protection inhibiting the growth of harmful microbes. The 3- trihydroxysilyl propyldimethyl octadecyl ammonium chloride bonds to most hard and soft surfaces providing long term protection by inhibiting growth on treated surfaces. Our Surface Protector is sustainable because it bonds to surface, does not leach and breaks down in a landfill to basically sand.
The bonded antimicrobial Surface Protector has a positive charge, while many microbes in nature have a negative charge. These microbes are thus electrostatically drawn to these molecular spears and subsequently have their cell membranes pierced by the long molecular chain. Research shows this “spearing” characteristics of the charged element is responsible for the inhibiting action against microbes. This process has been shown in studies to inhibit the possibility of an adaptive strain like Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) from evolving.
