Families often struggle to find household cleaners that are safe for the environment and human health. When it comes to health and environment, conventional cleaners have earned quite a negative reputation. From allergic reactions to home and planet pollution, the harsh chemicals found in conventional cleaners carry certain risks.
Green cleaners, on the other hand, are not as dangerous as their conventional alternatives. Using green cleaning products can reduce the chances of developing respiratory problems in children and adults. Additionally, going green can help reduce water and air pollution as well as minimize waste. And the list of green product benefits goes on.
Today, we would like to focus our attention on a specific type of green products: enzyme cleaners. These cleaners contain numerous qualities of bacteria, enzymes and microbial nutrients that break down and digest soils. By doing so, they remove odors and stubborn stains caused by human and animal waste. Enzyme cleaners have proved to be an effective alternative to conventional chemicals. They contain microorganisms that are capable of removing even the toughest stains and odors.
Let’s take a closer look and explore why you should use enzyme cleaners for your home.
Enzymes Remove Odors
An enzyme is a type of protein that breaks complex molecules into smaller pieces. The two most common cleaning enzymes are proteases and amylases. Contrary to a common belief, enzymes are not alive, although they are produced by living organisms. Furthermore, enzymes are made up of food-based amino acids. They work as the catalyst behind changing the physical properties of microorganisms that relate to stains and odors. Odor-causing bacteria are “food” for these microorganisms. That’s why enzymes are so effective in destroying stubborn stains and odors.
Bio-Enzymatic Cleaners Last a Long Time
It’s a known fact that bio cleaners provide residual cleaning up to 80 hours after application. That’s because enzymes keep working overtime, feeding on stubborn bacteria while it’s still present. A few hours after the initial cleaning, add a bit of water and any remaining enzymes will be re-activated! Not only does this reduce further organic growth of unwanted bacteria, it also helps to continuously neutralize lingering odors. That’s why medical industry has used enzymes to remove organic materials for years.
They Are Safe for The Environment
Overall, enzyme cleaners are much safer for use at home than traditional cleaning products. They are neutral pH levels and quickly eliminate even the toughest of pet odors without having to use harsh chemicals. Furthermore, enzymes convert the waste they consume into carbon dioxide and water. They don’t kill anything and don’t get flushed into wastewater. Therefore enzyme cleaners don’t cause any harm and are good for the environment.
Enzyme Cleaners Reach the Toughest Spots
It is a well-known fact that enzyme-based cleaners can penetrate into the areas where traditional cleaners can’t reach. Even non-porous floor finish has scratches and dents from normal foot traffic. Enzyme cleaners penetrate deeper than regular chemical. They, therefore, can reach into those hard-to-clean places ensuring a thorough surface cleaners
Enzyme Cleaners Are the Best Solution for Pet Stains
Every dog and cat owner will appreciate having a bottle of an enzyme cleaner handy when they find an unwanted “present” left on the floor. Enzyme-activated formulas remove organic stains in a heartbeat. Since these elements work by breaking down protein, starches, and oils, they stay active for a long time. Hence, an enzyme cleaner is your best friend when it comes to stubborn pet stains.
