These days in business you’ve probably heard the terms, corporate image and corporate responsibility? The truth is, in these sensitive times, your customers, staff and shareholders judge you not just on your value for money, efficiency, working conditions or share dividends—but also on how responsible your business practices are to the environment. It’s important to have an environmentally responsible cleaner.
Similarly, if you are a homemaker, you’re no doubt looking to find the safest cleaner and disinfectant to make sure your family and visitors are not adversely affected, and of course the smaller the environmental footprint your family leaves on the planet the better for everyone.
These dual considerations, those of the commercial world and the domestic environ, have been front of mind for DuroKleen in developing our range of cleaning products.
DuroKleen is better for the environment because it’s different to standard cleaners and disinfectants. Our competitors are mostly reliant on heavy ammonia, chlorine, formaldehyde, bleach or alcohol bases. Toxic for humans, animals, and the environment. They can burn, bleach and stain surfaces and material they are applied to, whilst also emitting toxic fumes, that can affect people’s breathing. Of course once these harmful heavy chemical formulas are used, they also inevitably end up being leached into the environment through waste disposal systems.
You can avoid all these negative outcomes by relying on DuroKleen to fulfil your cleaning and disinfecting requirements.
DuroKleen is a water-based formulation, non-toxic and non-flammable. It is made up of non-allergenic compounds which means it can be safely applied to a wider variety of surfaces than alcohol and chlorine-based alternatives.
It’s important to note that although environmentally safe, with DuroKleen there is no compromise on potency in the war against harmful microbes and viruses. When applied, DuroKleen goes to work safely providing a 99.9% sanitary environment on the surfaces it is applied to. Once the formula begins to dry it starts to form a protective bio-static barrier. This barrier is invisible to the naked eye, cannot be felt and leaves no harmful chemical residue.
You might be wondering how a product can be so safe and still be so effective? Well in the anti-microbial barrier that DuroKleen creates, the outside layers of microbial cells are made up of net negatively-charged lipid (fatty) molecules. The positively charged lipophilic tails of molecules that form the DuroKleen coating destroy offending microbes by fatally interacting both physically and chemically with the outer layers of the microbial cells. So DuroKleen works electrostatically rather than relying on harsh chemicals.
DuroKleen is used across many industries where its low environmental impact is essential. Agriculture, food preparation, aged care, childcare, hospitals and healthcare, sporting complexes, and office spaces to name just some.
In these challenging times, with over 80% of all communicable diseases transmitted by the hands touching contaminated surfaces. And 56% of all infectious diseases occur cutaneously, (through skin contact). The effectiveness of a cleaning and disinfecting formula is paramount. Now, with DuroKleen, you no longer have to live with an environmentally damaging product to have a sanitary work, home or outdoor space. And because our DuroKleen range is so effective, you also often have to use a lower volume of our products, compared to our competitors.
DuroKleen’s environmentally friendlier cleaning technology is present in each of our dedicated and multi-purpose disinfectant solutions. It is available to purchase as a stand-alone antimicrobial disinfectant in 50ml, 750ml, 5L, 20L, 200L and 1000L pack sizes. Standard operating procedures, Safety Data Sheets and other Supportive Documentation are also available upon request.
