Proper Use of Disinfectants in Laboratory Settings

Aqueous Ozone cleaning

A cleaning professional working in a laboratory was tasked with disinfecting work surfaces in the lab.  The disinfectant he was using had already been pre-mixed and poured into a bucket.  His job was to take a microfiber cleaning cloth and wipe down the surfaces with the water/disinfectant solution.

Following up on his work, his supervisor then tested the surfaces using what is called an ATP monitoring system. Already in use in many laboratories for a variety of functions, when it comes to cleaning these tools are used to determine how much adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is found on a surface before or after cleaning.

Third Hand Smoke a New Concern for Hotel Properties

cleancore technologies

On January 30, 2014, the U.S. Federal News Service and the University of California at Riverside issued the following alert:

“Do not smoke and do not allow yourself to be exposed to smoke because second-hand smoke and third-hand smoke are just as deadly as first-hand smoke. While first-hand smoke refers to the smoke inhaled by a smoker and second-hand smoke to the exhaled smoke and other substances emanating from a burning cigarette that can get inhaled by others, third-hand smoke is the second-hand smoke that gets left on the surfaces of objects, ages over time, and becomes progressively more toxic.” [Read More…]

Cleaning Words Correctional Administrators Need to Know

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…]

On-Demand, Effective Cleaning

on-site on-demand cleaning

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.

New Technologies Help Advance Green Cleaning

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…]

Aqueous Ozone Timeline

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…]

Looking at a New Way to Clean Cleanrooms

A manufacturer made small, aluminum tubular parts, about one inch in diameter, for one of their customers. The parts were used in highly sophisticated equipment and one of the problems they were encountering was removing chemical residue left on the parts during the manufacturing process. Not only did the residue have to be removed before the parts could be shipped, there were concerns that acids might be entrapped in the parts, which also had to be removed.

They turned to a leading product finishing expert for advice. The expert suggested, “I would first recommend rinsing [the aluminum tubular parts] thoroughly in a cold water rinse. Then go back and forth between a hot rinse and a cold rinse. This will cause expansion and contraction of the “pores,” or surfaces, and will most likely rinse out all of the residue.” 1 [Read More…]

The Evolution of What is Often Called Engineered Water Cleaning

on site, on demand cleaning

It’s often easier to pinpoint when a new technology first started to take hold in the marketplace than it is to predict its future. This is not necessarily true when we discuss the use of “engineered water,” as it is frequently called in the professional cleaning industry.

It appears that engineered water systems such as aqueous ozone, which turns ozone into a safe and effective cleaning agent, and related technologies that effectively clean carpets, floors, and surfaces without the use of chemicals have a growing future in the industry. [Read More…]
