Why Restoration Companies Seek Out Botanical Disinfectants
Restoration companies help businesses and individuals who are in the middle of a wide range of crises. The sudden onslaught of fire, water, or microbial damage inside a property exposes structural components, contents, and the people who live or work there to potentially toxic vapors and residues. During the cleanup and sanitization after disaster restorers choose products that make the process more thorough and efficient.
The last thing wanted are products that add to the hazardous load. Conventional cleaners and disinfectants contain harsh ingredients that can create toxic mixtures if used together. Instead, restoration professionals look for sustainable, naturally-derived botanical disinfectants options that deliver similar cleaning and sanitizing results without safety concerns.
Bioesque® Solutions use botanically-derived ingredients to clean and disinfect. The Thymox® technology powering each Bioesque® product permits the different Solutions to work together harmoniously. The plant-based extracts in Bioesque® products never react with each other to form noxious vapors or corrosive substances, while working to loosen grime and eliminate pathogens.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reviews the data supporting the chemistry, safety, and efficacy of products claiming to disinfect surfaces. Only when the product passes that review and substantiates labeling information is it termed “EPA registered.” Bioesque® Botanical Disinfectant, as well as the Heavy Duty Cleaner & Degreaser and Surface Cleaner & Sealant, are EPA registered.
Bioesque® Bactericidal, Virucidal*, Tuberculocidal, and Fungicidal** products are pre-mixed and ready to use, providing the proper concentration of the active ingredients right out of the bottle. No rinsing or wiping off the product is necessary, permitting restoration technicians to move quickly from surface to surface while completing a project.
Botanical disinfectants are safe to use around all individuals and pets, even those who suffer from chemical sensitivities and allergies. Bioesque® Solutions uses Thymol derived from thyme oil to deliver impressive kill rates for a wide range of microbes, eliminating 99.99 percent of viruses in one minute, 99.99 percent of bacteria in two minutes, and 99.99 percent of fungi, molds, and Mycobacterium tuberculosis in three minutes.
