A Non Corrosive Acid Replacement Cleaner To Safeguard Your Lungs

Posted by Barry Greenberg on Wed, Jul 2, 2014 @ 16:07 PM

 

Most workers who handle chemical cleaners, especially acid cleaners, know it's not a good idea to inhale the fumes, and some have suffered burns or irritations when these agents have come in contact with their skin. Although the link between acid cleaners and health problems might be obvious, many people aren't aware that scientific research has documented this link for some time.

Studies in recent years -- particularly the report from the "Current Opinion in Allergy and Clinical Immunology in 2010*" -- have proved that employees who work with or near acid cleaners have developed asthmatic symptoms where none existed previously. Custodians in institutions are particularly at risk because of the frequency and quantity of exposure.

Researchers have known about these problems for much longer, however. In 2003, professor Kenneth D. Rosenman from Michigan State University established that 12 percent of asthmatic conditions documents in cases involving four states were all connected to chemical cleaners. A full four-fifth of these workers had not experienced asthmatic symptoms before.

F-2002, our acid replacement cleaner, safely opens clogged urinals without using harsh chemicals that hurt the health of the worker or damage the environment. F-2002 has the same strength of acid cleaners to remove uratic salts -- and the strong odors and slime build-up associated with clogged urinals -- but with the mildness of liquid dish soap, and without any of the chemicals that have been shown to aggravate asthmatic conditions.

F-2002 Removes Hard Water Scale, Uratic Salts & Cleans Grout

Posted by Barry Greenberg on Fri, Jun 27, 2014 @ 18:06 PM

 

uratic salts remover, dissolves uric salts

Hard water scale and encrusted build up on surfaces cause unsanitary issues and other safety concerns. For this very reason, it is important to use a product that removes hard water scale, cleans grout, soap scum, mold & mildew, while being both reliable and safe. While many businesses may use acidic cleaners, a mild yet effective acid replacement cleaner will be just as productive. F-2002, an acid replacement cleaner, cleans and descales urinals,as well as removing encrusted buildup, is an ideal and optimum product for industries looking for safer alternatives.

Hard water scaling is developed over time. For example, areas where there is continuous water flow (tiles, grouting, drains, etc.) may see some buildup in between tiles, drains, and surfaces. This is because water contains minerals, such as calcium, that will precipitate out of the water and slowly collect around surfaces. When water temperature is high (such as in  boilers), there will be a greater amount of minerals precipitating and forming on surfaces. Hard water scale can later prove to be a problem. A product that cleans and descales boilers can help prevent hard water scaling from building up and getting out of hand.

In restrooms and bathrooms, grout may develop on tiles due to hard water. When quarry and ceramic tiles are not regularly cleaned, buildup from dirt, grease, and soap can slowly ruin the tiles. Using a reliable product that cleans grout and tiles and removes hard water scale will be beneficial in the long-run. Neglected and dirty tiles will become weaker and more porous in time, making dirt trapped in the surface nearly impossible to remove. This buildup on the grout  or tiles, can leave stains that destroy the aesthetically pleasant and crisp look of a room. Use a cleaning product such as F-2002, that can help fight grease and grout and remove any unwanted mineral hardening on surfaces.

Since kitchens and food preparation rooms have constant contact with water, rust and grout may be present on preparation surfaces and sinks. The moisture, chemicals, and heat in a kitchen can quicken the rate of rust and grout forming. In addition to this, the grease and blood from food can react with surfaces and breed germs. It is vital for kitchen and food preparation surfaces to be cleaned daily if not more frequently. Using a product that cleans grout and removes hard water scale from surfaces, will help keep prevent the growth and transmission of bacteria.

 

In areas where hard water scale or grout is dominant, chemical cleaners are used in order to remove unwanted buildup. However, acid cleaners can be dangerous to a person’s health. If they are used on a surfaces that are in contact with food, food contamination might occur, which can cause harm to the general public (consumers).

A better solution would be to use an acid replacement cleaner, such as F-2002, to help clean tiles and boilers. F-2002  removes hard water scale, cleans grout, and cleans and descales boilers. As a dependable cleaning product, F-2002 can help industries in keeping their areas not just clean, but also safe.

F-2002 is used as an Uratic Salts Remover, for free flowing urinals.

Do you like your Water Free Urinal?

Posted by Barry Greenberg on Thu, Jul 19, 2012 @ 14:07 PM

Are you happy with your choice of installing a water free (Waterless) urinal? Most engineers agree with the concept of "going green" and water savings. However, the current cartridges found in water free urinals are causing massive concerns for maintenance personnel. The drains are constantly clogging due to the super saturation of urinal salts (uratic salts) released from these cartridges. Additionally, the fluid (odor blanket) is effortlessly discarded by someone spilling soda, coffe or other liquid into the urinal. -That causes the odor problems.

Whats more- the removal of these cartridges is a disgusting, messy, smelly, chore.

  • User and servicing entity have high probability of being exposed to sewer gases, bacteria and viruses
  • High probability of "dry drain" from bacteria and water scale build up creating lumps of uric acid large enough to block the plumbing.

A major airport in Southern California has already removed their water free urinals.

Traditionally, most urinals are changed out every 2-3 months at a cost of approximately $40.00 per cartridge. That's very costly and also represents a huge impact environmentally, especially the waste created in our landfills.

There's a much more sensible and practical alternative.

The "Green Cartridge" is a patented, chemical free cartridge made of white ABS plastic and is a retrofit, made to fill ALL water free urinals. You can read more about the "Green Cartridge here".

 

  • Virtually odorless
  • Minimizes uratatic salts buildup in plumbing
  • Installation takes moments and cleaning is much more sanitary
  • Cartridge housing is permanent: 5 Year Warranty
  • Cartridge core, with proper maintenance can last one year or more
  • Use disinfectants and typical bowl cleaners as regular maintenance

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

 

F-2002 uratic salts remover dissolves uric salts

 

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 F-2002, uratic salts remover has proven to be a solution to maintain, free flowing urinal lines.

      

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 the typical fashion, the solution that travels down the drain line will in fact descale and remove uratic salts. F-2002 can also clean toilets, sinks and has proven to be outstanding as a tile and grout cleaner.

 

Waterless urinal users use F-2002 to clean and descale their urinals, when 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 25% 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.

Shades of Green - Part 2 - Green Cleaning Products

Posted by Barry Greenberg on Fri, Dec 23, 2011 @ 15:12 PM

We’ve discussed some of the regulatory bodies in our previous post. (Part 1)

100% renewable & bio-degradable products are critical for these certifications. A listing of the necessary criteria are listed in Addendum 1 of this post.

Understanding LEED Certification

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design

 The U.S. Green Building Council has implemented the LEED rating System. LEED is transforming the marketplace by providing a nationally recognized certification system to promote integrated, whole-building design practices in the building industry.

LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance provides a benchmark for building owners and operators to measure operations, improvements and maintenance.

LEED for New Construction and Major Renovations is designed to guide and distinguish high-performance commercial and institutional projects.

HOW IS LEED-EB CERTIFICATION ACHIEVED?

LEED-EB Certification is based on submitting the necessary documentation to the USGBC demonstrating that a building meets all of the prerequisites which every building must attain, plus achieving a number of more flexible credits or points, which a building can achieve based on which makes sense for that specific building.

The LEED-EB ratings are awarded according to the following scale with the higher number of points the higher the recognition.

 

            Certified                        32-39 points

            Silver                            40-47 points

            Gold                             48-63 points

            Platinum                       64-85 points

 

Green Cleaning can contribute about 40% of total points necessary for the basic certification. Landscaping, pest management and recycling are also included.

See the website at: www.usgbc.org

Chemex has partnered with manufacturers who currently have their products certified including Wasau Paper which can directly support this credit with the first and only complete line of towels and tissue products certified as environmentally preferable by Green Seal, Inc.

 Please stay tuned. We'll explain & clarify the terms "green" and "biobased". What you need to know...

  Our goal at Chemex is to offer products which are superior from an environmental and health & safety perspective.

These are products that:

Understanding Enzyme Producing Bacteria

Posted by Barry Greenberg on Fri, Sep 9, 2011 @ 13:09 PM
There are good bacteria & there are bad bacteria. The bad one’s can cause sickness & disease while the good ones are instrumental in such things as fermentation of beer, curing of tobacco and processing of cheese. "DIGEST PLUS" contains only good bacteria, in this case designed to eliminate odors and stubborn stains by bacterial digestion. When the good bacteria in DIGEST PLUS come in contact with organics, they act like sponges to absorb it. Then enzymes produced by the bacteria liquefy and literally digest this matter as their food. In the process, nothing more is produced than harmless carbon dioxide, water and more enzymes.
The bacteria in DIGEST PLUS are living organisms and need food to grow and multiply. Once they contact organic matter, they go to work digesting otherwise impossible to remove odors and stains. DIGEST PLUS eliminates odors and stains more effectively because every gallon is certified to contain 250 billion bacteria.

 Here's how it works...
The Bacterial/Enzyme digestion process is responsible for the digestion of organic waste in aquaculture, agriculture, composting, livestock, municipal and industrial wastewater treatment.
Bacterial digestion is the process of bacteria consuming organic matter. Enzymes act to break the organic matter into water soluble nutrients, which the bacteria digests. Using complex chemical reactions, the organic waste is metabolized down to water and carbon dioxide (the final metabolic waste products), providing the bacteria with energy for growth and reproduction.

Aerobic bacteria require the presence of oxygen to live and function.
Anaerobic bacteria do not require oxygen to live and function.

Organic waste is consumed by the bacteria, used as nutrients by the bacteria, and is no longer present to produce odors, sludge, pollution or unsightly mess.

"DIGEST PLUS" bacteria count and species: Every gallon is certifed to contain 250 billion bacteria. Bacillus subtilis, Bacillus Amuloliquifaciens, Bacillus Lichenformis, Bacillus megatherium, Pseudomonal fluorescens, Commomonas terrigena, Bacillus firmus.

Please view the Technical Data Sheet for more information and applications.

RX-75 Kills Canine Parvovirus, Kills Norovirus - Not Only For Cruise Ships

Posted by Barry Greenberg on Wed, Sep 7, 2011 @ 16:09 PM

Viral Gastroenteritis in the Workplace.

Viral Gastroenteritis, an irritation of the stomach or intestinal tract is becoming more common in the workplace. One reason is physical contact with contaminated surfaces, where workers, often in confined settings, rapidly spread the virus from person to person. Norovirus is a common name of this transmission. Most people experience this with extreme diarrhea, vomiting and stomach pain - (often referred to as stomach flu). Every year there are about 21 million cases caused by Norovirus. Unfortunately, there is no effective vaccine for its prevention.

  Proper hand hygiene is your first level of protection: hand washing and the use of hand sanitizers.

You can eliminate contamination, when touching of surfaces where the virus is present with proper disinfection. That integrates a hospital-grade disinfectant, registered by the EPA for this particular virus. "RX-75" is such a product.  Only 30 second contact time with "RX-75" is sufficient to safeguard your environment from the Norovirus. -When used as directed and detailed on the label, "RX-75" exhibits effective disinfectant activity against Mycobacterium tuberculosis (BCG), Norwalk virus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphyloccus aureus, Salmonella choleraesuis, Methicillin resistant Enteroccus aureus (MRSA), Vancomycin intermediate resistant Staphylococus aureus (VISA), HIV-1 (associated with AIDS), Hepatititis A Virus (HAV) and Feline Calicivirus and meets the requirements for hospital use. Please see the Technical Data Sheet and the Product Efficacy Sheet for many additional product claims.
