A Better Alternative to Chemical-Based Cleaners

Chemical-based cleaners have long been the go-to solution for cleaners and restorers. However, the rise of machines like hydroxyl generators has revolutionized the industry by providing a chemical-free, gentler approach to disinfecting and removing odors. In this blog post, we’ll explore why hydroxyl generators stand out as a superior choice for disinfection and odor removal compared to traditional chemical methods. 

1. Chemical-Free Disinfection:

Unlike chemical cleaners that rely on harsh ingredients to kill germs and bacteria, hydroxyl generators utilize UV-C to produce radicals. These radicals react with the air to break down gases and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), including those adsorbed in surrounding porous materials, without leaving behind any chemical residue. This ensures a thorough and safe cleaning process and eliminates the risk of chemical exposure for occupants and workers. 

Ozone is another popular, chemical-free choice for odor removal commonly used to deodorize. For the pros and cons of hydroxyl generators and ozone machines, check out this blog post.

2. Eliminates Odors Instead of Masking:

Chemical-based odor removal methods often mask unpleasant smells temporarily or require multiple applications to achieve satisfactory results. Hydroxyl generators, on the other hand, offer a comprehensive solution by targeting odor molecules at their source. The hydroxyl radicals produced by these machines break down VOCs responsible for bad odors, effectively neutralizing them.

3. Safe for All Materials:

Chemical cleaning agents may pose risks to sensitive surfaces, causing discoloration, deterioration, or other damage over time. Hydroxyl generators, on the other hand, are gentle yet powerful, making them safe for use on a wide range of materials, including fabrics, upholstery, carpets, wood, and electronics. This versatility allows cleaning and restoration professionals to confidently apply hydroxyl technology in various settings without concerns about damage to materials.

4. Environmentally Friendly:

As environmental sustainability awareness grows, businesses are increasingly seeking eco-friendly cleaning solutions. Hydroxyl generators offer a more eco-friendly alternative to chemical-based cleaners, as they rely on natural processes and produce no harmful by-products.

5. Cost-Effective and Time-Efficient:

While chemical cleaning methods may require repeated applications or extensive manual labor to achieve desired results, hydroxyl generators offer a cost-effective and time-efficient solution. Once installed, these machines operate continuously, delivering consistent cleaning and odor removal without frequently changing cleaning agents or manual intervention. This saves time and labor costs and enhances overall productivity for cleaning and restoration projects. When used according to safety guidelines, hydroxyl generators can also be used in occupied spaces.

Hydroxyl generators represent a game-changing innovation in the cleaning and restoration industry. Compared to traditional chemical methods, they offer unparalleled effectiveness, safety, and environmental sustainability. By utilizing the power of UV-C, these machines provide cleaning professionals with a reliable and efficient solution for disinfection and odor elimination.
