And for good reason — hydrogen peroxide is versatile and extremely cost-effective because of its ability to do the job of multiple cleaners. It’s strong oxidizing properties make it a powerful disinfectant and cleaning solution. And when used correctly, it can kill multiple germs, toxins, and bacteria.
What is Hydrogen Peroxide?
Hydrogen peroxide has nearly the same chemical makeup as water but with one additional oxygen atom. This allows it to break down quickly and harmlessly.
It works well as a degreaser, cleans the streaks out of mirrors, and can be used on countertops and floors as a disinfectant. Here are some of the surfaces you clean with hydrogen peroxide:
It is one of the easiest and safest ways to clean an office building, school, or healthcare facilities. It ensures a clean work environment but without the toxic ingredients found in most cleaning products.
The Power of Hydrogen Peroxide
But what makes hydrogen peroxide such a powerful and effective cleaner/disinfectant? Let’s look at the biggest benefits of using hydrogen peroxide for commercial cleaning:
Hydrogen peroxide is incredibly effective; it cleans, disinfects, and deodorizes surfaces. It is also anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-mold, and anti-mildew.
This is especially useful in healthcare facilities fighting against infections and other emerging threats. Using a hydrogen peroxide-based solution can help healthcare facilities provide a healthier environment for care, minimizing the risk of infections.
A unique challenge that many facilities face is finding a cleaning and disinfecting solution that works but won’t damage expensive equipment. Hydrogen peroxide-based solutions are not only effective, they are gentle enough to ensure that no equipment will be damaged during the cleaning process.
Many commercial products are damaging to the environment and contribute to indoor air pollution. For instance, cleaning solutions with fragrances can cause respiratory irritation, headaches, and increased sensitivity in people who suffer from allergies. Other chemicals are associated with long-term problems such as cancer.
However, because hydrogen peroxide degrades into the natural environmentally friendly components of water and oxygen, it is safe and nontoxic to the environment.
One of the biggest benefits of hydrogen peroxide is the simplicity it offers. Instead of using dozens of different types of cleaning products, you have one all-purpose solution.
This will save you time, money, and will ensure that you always have the product you need on hand. And this simplified approach will also make training cleaning staff more efficient.
Hydrogen peroxide provides a safer, more eco-friendly option for cleaning and disinfecting, and it serves as a sustainable cleaning solution.
This is why Midlab is proud to introduce Facility+, our new peroxide-based cleaner/disinfectant that can be used on multiple surfaces.
Facility+ is EPA approved and designed to clean, disinfect, and eliminate mold and mildew. Gone are the days of buying a dozen different cleaning solutions – Facility+ is the ONE solution you need to clean many surfaces.
