OMAHA, NE—Not requiring the use of chemicals is just one of the benefits of no-chemical cleaning. According to Matt Montag, sales manager at
CleanCore™, manufacturer of aqueous ozone cleaning systems, there are other benefits that often get overlooked.
To ensure we do not lose sight of these, Montag lists the following "ten hidden benefits" of no-water cleaning:
- No packaging required: Using no-chemical cleaning systems means no cleaning chemicals must be packaged in containers or boxes.
- Reduces transport needs and its environmental impact: Cleaning solutions are transported every day throughout the U.S., which costs money, requires fuel, and releases greenhouse gases.
- Reduced storage needs: Some no-chemical cleaning systems are compact enough to be installed directly to water fixtures in a facility, essentially eliminating storage requirements.
- Always available: Some no-chemical cleaning systems are designed to be used on an "on-site/on demand" basis.
- It is safe: Aqueous ozone systems' SDS (MSDS) indicates there are essentially no hazards when using these systems. No gloves, goggles, or protective gear is required. The cleaning water can be disposed of by pouring down the drain.
- Safety: Because no chemicals are involved, there is no mixing or diluting of chemicals. Many cleaning worker injuries occur when they are mixing/diluting chemicals.
- Cold water: Most no-chemical cleaning systems work on cold water, eliminating the need and expense for hot water.
- Step beyond green cleaning: Without chemicals in the cleaning process, this form of cleaning has no impact whatsoever on the environment.*
- No chemical residue: Chemical left on surfaces can cause rapid re-soiling on floors, carpets, and other surfaces. This is eliminated with no-chemical cleaning systems.
- Effective: Ozone has been shown to oxidize germs faster and more effectively than chlorine bleach.
*The ozone used in aqueous ozone cleaning is harmless and is the same as what is found naturally in the environment.
About CleanCare™ Technologies
CleanCore™ is an innovative cleaning technology that infuses cold water with ozone gas to create aqueous ozone, a natural and robust cleaning solution. Along with being effective, ozonated water is viewed as a more "natural" cleaning agent because ozone is naturally found in the atmosphere. This form of no chemical cleaning is often referred to as "one step beyond green cleaning" because there is essentially no impact on the environment when cleaning with a CleanCore system.
