Ever heard of probiotics to clean, sanitize and protect?
That’s ok, most people haven’t. Let us give you a quick rundown.
Some harmful microorganisms, like e. coli and staph bacteria, can develop a “biofilm.” Biofilm is a sticky, hard layer of secretions, which germs create in order to build a barrier where an organized colony of germs thrive. Inside this biofilm, germs pass nutrients to one another and transport waste outside of their little community. Since the biofilm is relatively hard and several layers deep, most chemical disinfectants (including bleach or Lysol) are not able to penetrate it in order to kill any of the germs below the surface. Therefore, after a disinfectant is applied and evaporates, what’s left are dead microorganisms to act as food for the community of germs that was untouched by that same chemical. Those germs then begin to feast and thrive, adapt, and eventually become resistant to chemical disinfectants or antibiotics–the creation of a super germ has begun. (Imagine what’s thriving in your baby car seat right now). However, we have an answer for this.
Our unique process applies high-temperature steam vapor to the surface which penetrates and destroys germs and biofilm while cleaning very effectively. Then, for additional protection, we add a layer of probiotic bacteria to the surface through a super-fine mist.
That’s right! Like probiotics in yogurt or dietary supplements for stomach and immune health, similar probiotics help sanitize and make your environment healthier at the microscopic level in several ways:
- overcrowding a surface so germs can’t settle and thrive
- “quorum sensing” telling germs to stop replicating or be destroyed
- consuming the food sources germs would normally eat like dead skin cells, micronutrients in sweat, old food, etc.
- breaking down biofilm and destroying odors at their source
What’s more, the probiotic bacteria keep working and sanitizing for several days. So when you pick up your child from school and place them in the car seat, those same probiotics are still sanitizing the seat so less germs survive and transfer between points of interest.
Probiotic cleaners are already used for room preparation in leading-edge hospitals, air filtration systems in hotels, and used for sanitizing equipment in food processing plants, and other high risk areas where infection control is critical. Well, we believe infection control is absolutely critical when it comes to your child’s micro environment.
