Disinfectants, unlike cleaners, have chemicals that kill germs.
Eco-friendly disinfectant products are known not to harm the environment and its ecosystem in their production, use, or disposal and are generally safer for people as well. Incorporating these products allows us to preserve the environment by reducing pollution, contamination of our natural resources, decreasing our greenhouse gas emissions, and improving indoor air quality and employee health.
Enliten has sourced an eco-friendly disinfecting Hypochlorous Acid Solution (HOCL), Proguardeum, for resale to companies and its partner businesses.
Hypochlorous Acid (HOCL) is the most potent microbicide in the chlorine family available in a pH neutral solution.HOCL will kill most bacteria or viruses in 30 seconds or less and in most cases in less than 5 seconds. HOCL has been approved by Health Canada and the EPA for use against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes Covid-19.
HOCL is also a naturally occurring chemical that is produced by our white blood cells to fight bacteria and inflammation after an infection or trauma.
HOCL is eco-friendly as it breaks down into mostly water, salt, and evaporated oxygen allowing it to be used without any harmful effects to people or the environment.
