Electrochemically Activated Water: A Safe Cleaning Alternative
October 21, 2019 Leave a Comment
There is no doubt that many of the cleaning and sanitizing products sold on stores pose a threat to the environment and to the health of consumers. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention frequently monitor these products and issue warnings about them. Everything from bleach to the chemical-based cleaners used in our homes, schools, hospitals, and other public areas can be dangerous. Finding a better way to clean, sanitize, and disinfect not only decreases health concerns to people, it can have a life-sustaining effect on our environment.
Fortunately, there is a safe alternative to using the toxic products we've become accustomed to using: electrochemically activated water. You may have also heard the phrase electrolyzed water. What is electrochemically activated water and how does it work? GenEon has spent a lot of time developing the use of this technology for safe and effective cleaning. Here's how it works. One of the natural minerals GenEon uses as a catalyst is salt. Salt is a compound comprised of sodium and chloride. The sodium ions are positively charged and the chloride ions are negatively charged. Our On-site Generators expose these ions to a low electrical charge, whereby the positive side of the charge electrochemically converts the chloride ion (Cl) to hypochlorous acid (HOCl) ( a powerful sanitizer) and the negative side of the charge electrochemically converts the sodium ion (Na) into sodium hydroxide (NaOH) (a cleaning compound found in soaps and detergents). Unlike many other OSG systems, our system is a Blended Stream System that uses both versions in the same solution. The hypochlorous solution is represented as Free Available Chlorine (FAC) that has 80-200 times the sanitizing power of chlorine bleach. Since it is produced at a near neutral pH, it won't bleach out furniture or clothes. This is electrochemically activated water.
Benefits of Using Electrochemically Activated Water and OSG Technology
There are numerous advantages to using electrochemically activated water and on-site generation technology (OSG) to create your cleaning products. These benefits include:
- Products created on site and on demand
- No more constant reordering of cleaning products
- Minimal training requirements
- Eliminates mixing, reducing accidents rates
- Reduces storage and handling
- Reduces potentially harmful exposure to staff and consumers, decreasing the rate of absenteeism and of workers compensation claims.
- Saves money with less waste
How Can Electrochemically Activated Water Be Used?
Cleaners, sanitizers, and disinfectants made with electrochemically activated water can be used in many different situations, both commercially and in residential settings. At GenEon, we make a variety of cleaning and sanitizing products ranging from general purpose cleaners to powerful degreasers. Since the products are made using only water and minerals, they are safe and sustainable as well. Used in conjunction with our advanced delivery technology, GenEon cleaning and sanitizing products are the ideal way to clean and disinfect areas where a concern for public health is important.
Schools, hospitals, gymnasiums, supermarkets, public water coolers, restrooms, and other public access spaces can harbor a myriad of germs and bacteria, including MRSA, Staph, influenza, E. Coli and Salmonella (particularly around food), and others. Cleaners and sanitizers made with GenEon's electrolyzed water technology are about 80 times more powerful than bleach. This means more effective cleaning and sanitizing while posing less threat and health risks to consumers.
GenEon is a Complete Solution to a Safer Cleaning Alternative
At GenEon, we have spent a great deal of time developing and producing a complete package for safe cleaning alternatives. Our priority has always been to deliver a product that is both safe for the environment and safe for those who come into contact with our products. GenEon's cleaners are safe and our sanitizers and disinfectants are free of toxins and can be used without damaging the eco-system. This truly is a sustainable way to clean and sanitize effectively without posing unnecessary health risks.
Along with our sustainable cleaning and disinfecting products, we offer on-site generation technology to meet your needs. Whether you are in a residential or a commercial setting, GenEon is the perfect choice. Our on-site generation technology includes the Instaflow
system for making a high volume of cleaning and sanitizing products. If you're looking for more portability, the Immersa-A-Clean Wand
is compact enough to hold in your hand while you produce the all-natural, sustainable cleaning and sanitizing products you need for the specific job you're doing.
We also have a line of advanced delivery products that lets you apply our cleaning products in all types of settings, from the largest commercial facility to residential settings. The Mist
delivery system and our smaller Mist2.5
are two of methods for dispersing our products in large open areas or tight spaces.
