Eliminate Tough Organic Odors and Stains, With Digest Plus

Posted by Barry Greenberg on Wed, Aug 27, 2014 @ 15:08 PM

 

     Eliminate Tough Organic Odors and Stains With Digest Plus

"Digest Plus" is enzymatic and bacterial compound that digests organic matter and uric acid molecules, breaking them down and processing them through natural bioenzymatic action, just as they perform within the natural world. The bacteria soak up the material, then enzymes produced by the bacteria literally digest the organics, producing only water, carbon dioxide and more enzymes as by-products.

This microbial digester, eliminates the need for costly and toxic clean-up processes involving acids or industrial solvents. Commercial plants, industrial installations and food service operations are just a few of the industries that incorporate this environmentally friendly odor eliminator.

However, the practical applications are wide ranging and include school districts, military facilities, hospitals and more. Digest Plus can be used in industrial, institutional and commercial facilities to maintain restroom floors, using a standard mop. Apply directly to the affected surfaces with a sprayer or simply pour onto the specific area.

This incredible digester can be safely used to clean carpets as well, and it has met the DuPont test for use on 'New Generation' carpet, as it will not remove or alter its stain resistant properties. Each and every gallon of Digest Plus is certified to contain at least 250 billion bacteria that need food to grow and reproduce, making it the most effective cleaner for odors and stains that are seemingly impossible to remove.

Contact us today and learn how Digest Plus and its army of enzymes and bacteria can knock out the toughest odors and stains with minimal effort and no adverse affects on the environment.

Green Drain Eliminates Odors, for any Floor Drain

Posted by Barry Greenberg on Wed, Jul 30, 2014 @ 23:07 PM

Why Green Drain is the New Eco-Friendly Solution for any floor drain...

Trying to find the right solution or product to eliminate odors from dried drain traps, can make you feel lost at sea. At times, those horribly unpleasant odors can be overwhelming, and while standard practice calls for caustic or acidic drain cleaners, these products can damage the pipes, material of construction, as well as your lungs. Fortunately, there is a natural solution to this problem. Instead of reaching for that bottle of drain cleaner, Green Drain is the New Eco-Friendly Solution for any floor drain.

Green Drain only allows for a one-way flow of liquid, down the drain, so there are no back-ups. Green Drain also prevents hazardous sewer gases and harmful bacteria from leaking up through the drain. Not only does Green Drain's one-way valve and silicon skirts eliminate odors, it also prevents insects from entering through the drains. Additionally Green Drain can prevent flood damage, and it is completely chemical free. This means Green Drain is not only the safest solution to all your floor drain requirements, but is also safe for your environment.

The fumes from chemical drain cleaners can be toxic and harmful to caregivers, maintenance workers, and anyone else in the area. These chemicals, which can actually damage metal pipes, may even cause more work and expense for you in the long run.

Green Drains are better for the environment because you don't add dangerous chemicals, that can leak into soil and water. This chemical-free solution can go in any drain and is suitable for use in kitchens, basements, labs, restrooms, industrial drains, water heaters, laundry rooms, and even showers. 

In today's world, where awareness of the environment is essential, help create a cleaner, safer and more eco-friendly floor drain, with the Green Drain and eliminate those unpleasant odors in your building naturally.

Pan-Gel Condensate Pan Treatment For A/C and HVAC Systems

Posted by Barry Greenberg on Mon, Jul 28, 2014 @ 15:07 PM

Eliminate plugged condensate drainlines

                                                                                   condensate pan Treatment

As the compressor in your A/C or HVAC system runs, it creates a heat exchange that allows the system to emit hot or cold air. As part of this heat exchange, the compressor pulls water from the room air as it operates. Most of the country has been noticing higher humidity levels, thus more stress on the A/C to dehumidify.  Most units use a drain pan and drain lines to funnel the condensation from this process, and to route it away from your system and its surroundings. Some systems utilize a pump to assist the drainage & more often it drains by gravity alone.

But over time, that pan and the drain lines can get clogged with algae, slime, debris, sediments, and various minerals.  Additioanlly, the pan itself deteriorates because of rust etc. and provides an uneven surface. This is an ideal spot for water stagnation. Chemex Industries Pan-Gel condensate pan treatment is a water-activated gel that both cleans and prevents your drain pan and lines from becoming obstructed.  As water from your A/C or HVAC system drips into the drain pan and lines, it mixes with the slow-release cleaner in the Pan-Gel treatment, removing debris and deposits and allowing the condensation to freely drain from your system, as intended.

Each pan gel treatment lasts approximately six months, and helps cut down on costly maintenance and repairs, that can become necessary when mineral build up, dust, or debris block your drain lines or build up in your drain pan. Because this process keeps your pan and lines clean, you don't have to worry about the drain pan overflowing and creating water damage in/under your system, or the safety hazard where excess leaking could cause a short. 

Other health & safety concerns are slipping/falling & the release of the potential for Legionella ( deadly bacterium) and a variety of other pathogenic organisms. The fungus Aspergillus & Mycobacterium tuberculosis can thrive in the environment that the drip pan provides.Typical A/C units used in hotels & some hospitals have air blowing through the coil and can cause the water in the pan to aerosollize (small particles) and become airborne.

Pan-Gel is NSF Registered.              Pan Gel Special Offer

It is quite confusing to determine what constitutes “green” these days…
Questions emerge like:
What criteria do we need to follow?
What constitutes “green”?
When are we required to implement these programs?
Who sets the standards?

In October 1993 President Clinton issued Executive Order 12873, known as Federal Acquisition, Recycling, and Waste Prevention. The purpose of this order was to more effectively utilize the vast purchasing power of the government to procure products that are environmentally preferable. By acting "as an enlightened, environmentally conscious and concerned consumer," the federal government would be able to maximize recycling and encourage development of markets for environmentally friendly products which would benefit the economy and the environment.
In short, Executive Order 12783 required federal agencies to identify and purchase products that had reduced human health and safety impacts, as well as products preferable for the environment.

Nearly 20 years later, we are still fumbling to comprehend the green standard.

 

There are many agencies that certify products based on their set of criteria/standards.
 
“Green Seal” is one well-known name. “GS-37” is Green Seal’s environmental standard for cleaning and degreasing agents. 
 
EPA's "DfE" (Design for the Environment) program uses their chemical assessment tools and expertise to inform substitution to safer chemistries. "DfE" focuses on industries that combine the potential for chemical risk reduction and improvements in energy efficiency with a strong motivation to make lasting, positive changes.
 
Eco Logo is another widely recognized and respected certification of environmental leadership. By setting standards and certifying products in more than 120 categories, EcoLogo helps identify, environmentally preferable (“green”) goods and services
 
Greenstar is an independent not-for-profit organization.  Its purpose is to achieve a cleaner, healthier and sustainable world through the identification and promotion of products that are produced and used in an environmentally sound manner. 

The CRI, “Carpet & Rug Institute”, also has a certification process.
 
Confusing, right??

There's even more confusion, when using 100% renewable & bio-degradable products, and you're eligible for LEED-EB certification, and attempting to comprehend the point system.

Our goal at Chemex is to offer products which are superior from an environmental and health & safety perspective.
These are products that:
            Will compete with conventional products on both performance and price
            Are safer for both the user and the workplace environment
            Will clean our world without harming Nature’s balance

Green Cleaning in Schools & the Workplace:

With large groups of children, confined to areas, including classrooms, cafeterias and auditoriums, the likelihood of spreading disease is much greater. Hard surfaces including floors, walls, desks, tables, door knobs, light switches, and carpeted areas, become a breeding ground for bacteria & viruses. The extent to which disease can spread is directly related to the level of cleanliness. Both schools and the workplace, with their focus on creating a healthier environment, are successfully employing "green" cleaning chemicals along with proven procedures, to maintain a high degree of hygiene and to eliminate cross contamination.

This endeavor has been shown to reduce absenteeism both on the job and in the classroom.

Training is instrumental in the development of a green program and Chemex has the most complete product listing and training seminars in place. Call us for more information or to schedule a seminar.

 

Some newer areas of green cleaning products include: safe disinfectants, carpet stain removers, grout cleaning, upholstery cleaners, odor removal and cooling water chemicals.

"F-2002" a Safe Descaler, is an Acid Replacement Cleaner

Posted by Barry Greenberg on Sun, Apr 29, 2012 @ 15:04 PM

Our calls and requests for the use of a urinal descaler for the removal of uric salts, has increased dramatically. The advent of the waterless urinal is certainly one of the culprits. Housekeepers and building engineers can not tolerate the disgusting odors and constant stoppages. Our "USR", uratic salrs remover has proven to be a solution to maintain, free flowing urinal lines.

      acid replacement cleaner, descales, descaler, dissolves uratic saltsf-2002 acid replacement cleaner, descales urinals

Additionally, "F-2002", an acid replacement cleaner can be used safely on a daily basis to clean  urinals, remove odors and open drain lines. That's right, after swabbing the urinal in a typical fashion, the solution that travels down the drain line will in fact descale and remove uratic salts. "F-2002" can also be clean toilets, sinks and has proven outstanding as a tile and grout cleaner.

Waterless urinal users use "F-2002" to clean and descale their urinals, while changing out the cartridge.

No need for dangerous acids that will harm plumbing and stain chrome fixtures when "F-2002" will perform as an Eco Friendly Cleaning Agent that truly works as well as an acid.

 

"F-2002" is a 10:1 concentrate, so a little goes a long way. Also very effective as a cleaner for ceramic tile floors. Just mop on, agitate around grout lines and rinse off.

Acid Replacement Cleaner, non-corrosive, no odor, as gentle as dish detergent.

F-2002" is a clear/amber product with no odor.

Safe Disinfectants. Are You Really Disinfecting?

Posted by Barry Greenberg on Thu, Feb 2, 2012 @ 23:02 PM
Regrettably, many people placed in charge of safely disinfecting hospitals, schools, nursing homes, office and commercial buildings are missing the mark. Resulting cross-contamination causes chronic illness and even death.
Its everyone's intention to provide a safe and healthy environment. The challenge is to receive, understand and utilize proper training in disinfecting our surfaces; unfortunately, there's rampant misinformation and an absence of  skilled instruction, regarding disinfectants and disinfecting. -Are buyers procuring the appropriate product? Do custodial people appreciate and understand dwell times necessary to completely eradicate pathogenic bacteria? Most systems currently in place are not working!
 
How else can you account for the rate of nosocomial (secondary infections) incidents in our hospitals. Improper mopping methods/procedures are considered a leading source of CA MRSA.
Use Safe Disinfectants  Combined with sloppy and inappropriate execution, its no wonder that a health care facility is no place for a sick individual.
(Have you ever seen the inside of a janitors closet.)
 
Using the best product available with improper procedures will result in a failure to disinfect. Using correct tools and procedures and the wrong disinfectant for the application, will also result in failure...
 
  • Learn why Bleach usually results in failure to disinfect
  • Understand Parvo Disinfectant Claims
  • Why are some disinfectants dangerous to use?
  • Why are sanitizers a poor choice for health care?
  • How do you know if you've performed your job?

Shades of Green - Part 3 - Green Cleaning Chemicals

Posted by Barry Greenberg on Fri, Dec 23, 2011 @ 16:12 PM

Is there a difference between "green" and "biobased"?

We’ve evolved from an extensive period, utilizing chlorinated solvents to strip away grease, tar, fats, grime etc. from surfaces. I can recall maintenance personnel, washing their hands in the parts dip tank. No wonder there was a discoloration of their skin, the area of their arm, from their biceps down through their fingers, that were submerged in the solvent.

These solvents contributed to poor and dangerous indoor air quality as well as damaging the ozone level. Needless to say it was harmful to skin, respiratory (inhalation toxicity) and to many surfaces.

Our “Shades of Green” Report details the confusion end users face while trying to comply with the mandated legislation, related to green cleaning. This portion of our report will explain “Green” and “Biobased”.

Understanding the term “GREEN”:

A green chemical is a product that has a lesser or reduced impact on human health and the environment when compared with competing products that serve the same purpose. Be aware of the VOC's (volatile organic compounds) contained in the product. The EPA regulates VOC's in the air, water and land. OSHA regulates VOC exposure in the workplace. Volatile organic compounds that are considered hazardous material, would be regulated by the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration while being transported. In California, the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) provides a list of CAS (Clean Air Solvents), by manufacturer. Chemex Industries, Inc. is proud to be included in this listing of safe products, based on low our levels of VOC's.

As outlined in Part 1 of this communication, third party certifications, such as DfE and Green Seal, test and evaluate skin and inhalation toxicity levles for product use.

Understanding the term "BIOBASED":

The term ‘‘biobased product’’ means a product determined by the Secretary of Agriculture to be a commercial or industrial product (other than food or feed) that is composed, in whole or in significant part, of biological products or renewable domestic agricultural materials (including plant, animal, and marine materials) or forestry materials OR an intermediate feedstock. Some examples of agricultural resources that make up many biobased products include: soybeans, corn, kenaf, flax, jute, and numerous other types of crops that are harvested. Current applications of these agricultural resources create products such as ethanol (corn-based), soy candles, soy-based lubricants, kenaf office paper, and bioplastics to name a few. These ingredients are environmentally safer, increase rural economic development, foster domestic production of resources and reduce U.S. dependency on imported products, such as foreign oil. This helps alleviate the consumption of resources that harm the environment in terms of biodegrability, toxicity, and pollution.

Please recognize that biobased products are benficial because they use renewable resources in place of the limited supply of oil. BUT, biobased is not necessarily green. Unlike green chemicals, biobased chemicals do not currently qualify for LEED certification points.

The USDA Bio Preferred Program program is in place to promote the increased purchase and use of biobased products.

Not all green chemicals are biobased, nor are all biobased chemicals considered green. But there is an ovelap between the two. Choosing a product that meets both criteria sound like your best bet.
