CleanCore’s sister company, TetraClean Systems, recently completed a significant research project with the University of Arkansas Department of Food Science. An Original Research Article documenting the results of the testing has been published in the journal Frontiers In Microbiology. The article, published on January 8, 2019, is titled “The Addition of Viriditec Aqueous Ozone to Peracetic Acid as an Antimicrobial Spray Increases Air Quality While Maintaining Salmonella Typhimurium, Non-pathogenic Escherichia coli, and Campylobacter jejuni Reduction on Whole Carcasses”.
The research explored the combination of Viriditec Aqueous Ozone with the most utilized antimicrobial in poultry processing facilities, peracetic acid or “PAA”. PAA is increasing recognized as noxious chemical that is a hazard to human health. The research tested a theory that the addition of Viriditec Aqueous Ozone to PAA could reduce the noxious nature of PAA while maintaining or improving the antimicrobial action of combined solution versus PAA alone. The research concluded in part that “the combination of 10 ppm of aqueous ozone, ViriditecTM, and 500 ppm of PAA has the potential to mitigate the presence of Salmonella Typhimurium, E. coli J53, and C. jejuni. Furthermore, the combination of 10 ppm of aqueous ozone with 500 ppm of PAA demonstrated the ability of ozone to reduce the ambient PAA vapor by 90%, when compared to 500 ppm of PAA alone. Thus, the application of TetraClean’s product ViriditecTM has the ability to enhance the safety for poultry processing employees.”
Viriditec Aqueous Ozone by TetraClean Systems is a patented industrial system that is an effective cleaning solution that can be used virtually everywhere conventional sanitizing and cleaning chemicals are used. Viriditec Aqueous Ozone by TetraClean Systems is used for various industrial applications mainly in food processing facilities and water treatment.
Aqueous ozone is an anti-microbial food rinse that is approved for direct food contact and secondary food additive by the USDA & FDA. Further, it can be applied to processing belts, equipment and hard surfaces while in production resulting in reduced machinery downtime.
What are called aqueous ozone cleaning systems are starting to make significant inroads in the professional cleaning industry. One of the initial goals of the manufacturers of these products was to prove to the professional cleaning industry these systems clean effectively, that they can be used for daily cleaning, and that they offer what is now called “on-demand” cleaning, allowing the cleaning worker to use the system whenever needed/wherever needed, without needing to gather supplies from a janitorial closet.
Scores of studies have now been released that prove the cleaning effectiveness and value of these systems. Further, as cleaning professionals begin to use these systems, they find the manufacturers were correct and the systems are equally suited to handling both daily and on-demand cleaning tasks.

With CleanCore™ Technologies’ 3.0 Fill Station, aqueous ozone is made on-site and on-demand, allowing it to be poured directly into spray bottles, mop buckets, auto scrubbers , and even carpet extractors allowing for true when needed/where needed cleaning.
This wall-mounted system connects quickly and easily to any cold water outlet. Safe for users and the environment, the system has LED “ready” indicator lights; power indicator lights; an hours meter to track usage; and a flow rate of 3 gallons per minute.

Those attending the recent ISSA tradeshow likely saw aqueous ozone cleaning systems on display. For many, this was the first time they heard of this cleaning technology.
While the use of aqueous ozone for cleaning is relatively new, aqueous ozone is actually an old technology. In fact, it has been used for cleaning in one form or another for more than 100 years.
To bring us up to speed on aqueous ozone, CleanCore Technologies, a leading manufacturer of these systems, provides us with the following aqueous ozone timeline: [Read More…]
A hotel chain was looking for ways to reduce cleaning-chemical supply use, minimize supply costs, operate more sustainably, and decrease its overall environmental footprint in its several four-star and five-star hotels. Looking at a variety of options and alternatives to traditional and green cleaning solutions, the hotel chain decided its most viable option was the use of what are called aqueous ozone cleaning systems.
The chain has been using the cleaning systems for all types of cleaning duties, from cleaning guest rooms and bathrooms, public washrooms, and glass to wood and ceramic floors and carpet. While aqueous ozone is not viewed as a disinfectant, at least not in the United States, the hotel chain representatives say they do use aqueous ozone to sanitize surfaces in order to help reduce the number of potentially harmful pathogens on a variety of “high-touch” surfaces. * [Read More…]
Aqueous ozone has a long, well-established, and well-respected history in the food operations industry. Discussing its merits, an article published in this magazine more than 14 years ago reported that aqueous ozone “has been used as a disinfectant in drinking water since 1893, as a food preservative for the cold storage of meats since 1909, and found to prevent the growth of yeast and mold during the storage of fruits in 1939.”1
While aqueous ozone is not suggested or recommended to be used as a replacement for an EPA-registered disinfectant, at least not in the United States, the authors go on to say that “[aqueous] ozone has enjoyed a long history of use and is known as a broad-spectrum biocide against viruses, bacteria, biofilms, fungi and protozoa.” [Read More…]
In the U.S. today, there are 4,575 prisons housing approximately 2,220,000 adults. That means about one in 100 U.S. adults are in prison and if they were all located in the same city, it would be the fourth largest city in the country.
These numbers are important for correctional administrators to know because it is their job to keep these people as healthy as possible while they are under state and government supervision. While this can involve a variety of strategies, at the top of the list is proper cleaning. Yes, for these 2.22 million people to be healthy, the prisons they live in must be clean and healthy; and one way we do this is by understanding what we can call cleaning “jargon.” [Read More…]
One of the key features of CleanCore Technologies’ Aqueous Ozone cleaning systems is that it provides “on-demand” cleaning where needed and when needed.
No more walking to and from the janitorial closet for supplies.
Aqueous ozone is an effective, all-natural cleaning system to clean virtually all surfaces. Oxygen from the air is converted into ozone and mixed with cold tap water.
Aqueous zone is attracted to soils, germs, and other contaminants. Once attached, the ozone eliminates them and then converts back to oxygen and water.

The certifications for the cleaning solution produced by CleanCore Technologies’ Caddy™ cleaning system keep coming in.
Not only is the aqueous ozone produced by the CleanCore Caddy certified by WoolSafe®, because it is safe and effective when used to clean wool fibers, the solution has also been Green Seal certified, meaning it is safer to use for the user, building users, and the environment.
And the Caddy improves worker productivity because it can be used when needed/where needed, on-site and on-demand.

Historically, the professional cleaning industry has been slow to change, and this was evidenced by many of the same types of equipment being displayed at tradeshows. But this all changed about a decade ago when the industry “went green.” Today, new environmentally preferable cleaning chemicals, tools, and equipment are introduced just about every year.
And this year is no exception. We expect some manufacturers at the tradeshow will be introducing an entirely new type of green cleaning system, referred to as aqueous ozone. Manufactured by different companies, a limited number of these systems have already been certified by Green Seal®, which verifies their green credentials as well as effectiveness. [Read More…]
