How Is Electrolyzed Water Used for Cleaning?
October 10, 2019 Leave a Comment
Many cleaners, sanitizers, and degreasers on the market are dangerous, not only to people and wildlife, but to our environment as well. Both the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), along with other state level and government agencies have issued warnings and set regulations to try and control the dangers of these products. Many companies have been manufacturing and marketing cleaning products as "green," insinuating they are better for the environment and even safe for consumers and their pets. While the Federal Trade Commission has set some guidelines for green marketing, those guidelines are minimal and it is left up to advocacy groups to initiate guidelines that promote fairness and accuracy in the marketing green products. The goal of the guidelines is to reduce the broad and ambiguous statements made by manufacturer's claiming their products are "safe" for the environment and for people. The reason the FTC hasn't provided more substantial guidelines is because of the wide degree of interpretation terms like "sustainable" and "natural" have.
One method for creating sustainable cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting products that stands out as a viable option and a real alternative to chemical-based products is a method that uses electrolyzed water. This truly is a technology that generates products that are nearly unrivaled at killing germs. In fact, products made with electrolyzed water are 80 to 100 times better at killing germs than bleach, yet these same products are harmless to people and the eco-system.
How is Electrolyzed Water Used for Cleaning Products?
Electrolyzed water is used to create cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting products through a process called electrochemical activation (ECA). Here's how it works. One of the natural minerals that GenEon uses as a catalyst is salt. Salt is a compound comprised of sodium and chloride. Sodium ions are positively charged and chloride ions are negatively charged. GenEon's Onsite Generators expose these ions to a low electrical charge. The positive side of the charge electrochemically converts the chloride ion (Cl) to hypochlorous acid (HOCl), which is a powerful sanitizer. The negative side of the charge electrochemically converts the sodium ion (Na) into sodium hydroxide (NaOH), which is a cleaning compound commonly found in soaps and detergents. Unlike many other OSG systems, GenEon's 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 called electrolyzed water for cleaning, and GenEon is the leader in on-site generation of Electrolyzed Water.
We mentioned on-site generation technology above. GenEon leads the way in on-site generation. Using our advanced on-site generation technology, consumers create the cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfectants they need as they need. This means there is never a need to store a vast array of potentially harmful chemical-based products at your workplace, in your schools, in hospitals, in your home, or anywhere else you would find these dangerous cleaning chemicals. On-site generation allows consumers to create only what they need for each job. This means less waste and more savings.
Real-World Benefits of Using Products Made with Electrolyzed Water
Think about the vast quantity of cleaning products being used in our schools, hospitals, places where we work, gymnasiums, and anywhere there is public access. So many of the products, including bleach, contain harsh chemicals that can be detrimental to the health of not only anyone who comes into contact with them, but to our environment as well. Replacing these products with a more sustainable option is one way to alleviate the dangers posed by using chemical-based cleaners. Think about the difference that can be made by using safe cleaners and toxic-free sanitizers in the classroom. Bleach, which releases toxic fumes and can interact dangerously with other cleaning products, can be replaced with products that kill 99.999% of the bacteria found in our classrooms and other public areas. Electrolyzed water is the answer.
GenEon doesn't stop with safe cleaners and toxic free sanitizing and disinfecting products. We take our fight against bacteria to another level by offering the advanced systems for delivering our products in a variety of settings. Our Mist delivery system is perfect for evenly dispersing our cleaners, sanitizers, and disinfectants in large areas and in those areas that are hard to reach. The Mist is ideal for gymnasiums, stores, schools, and hospitals where you can find Staph, cold and flu viruses, athlete's foot, ringworm, and many other types of viruses and bacteria. Whether you need the high volume capabilities of InstaFlow or Immerse-a-Clean-Wand for portable on-site generation, we've got the system for you. With our on-site generation technology, our mineral electrolyte, and our advanced Mist delivery system, you've got the power to clean, sanitize, and disinfect effectively without harming the environment or posing health risks to the people around you. GenEon cleaning products, on-site generation technology, and our delivery systems allow you to utilize the power of electrolyzed water for cleaning wherever it can make the most difference.
What all of this means is a higher level of safety for people where safe cleaners and non-toxic sanitizers are used instead of chemical-based cleaners, more effective cleaning and sanitizing, less harm to the environment, and greater savings to the companies using electrolyzed water for cleaning.
The GenEon Commitment to a Better Future
At GenEon, we believe in staying true to our promise to bring you the absolute best cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting products available anywhere. We also believe in being transparent. When we say our cleaning products are truly eco-friendly we mean it. We've done extensive testing to back up what we claim. Safety and sustainability are our number one goal. Our mission is now and always has been to redefine the meaning of safer cleaning, degreasing, and sanitizing. That's why our sustainable, renewable, and safe cleaning options are proven as effective, and even more so in many cases, as the leading "green" products and traditional chemical cleaners on the market. Our goal is to improve the health, safety, and productivity of those who use and are exposed to cleaning products where they live, work and pay.
But how do we accomplish this? We spend a great deal of time researching, designing, and developing sustainable chemical-free cleaning and sanitizing products in many different categories. This includes a range of advanced cleaners for specific jobs as well as the systems used to deliver those cleaners. Our solutions provide all the benefits of traditional cleaners without the excessive expense or the dangers associated with keeping chemical cleaners on-hand. Our mission includes informing communities everywhere about our unique, truly sustainable cleaning and sanitizing technology. We do this through close collaboration with our customers, our partners, and by spreading the news organically and targeting areas where these systems can bring the most benefit, which includes schools, the workplace, public access areas, and anywhere else where harsh chemical cleaners can be detrimental.
