Green technology gaining ground

Strong UK and European sales for the Activeion ionator EXPTM, the handheld chemical-free cleaning tool launched in April 2010, suggest that the professional cleaning market is welcoming the advent of green cleaning technology says AndrÃ© Krell
The Activeion ionator EXPTM temporarily ionises tap water into a powerful bacteria-killing cleanser that also kills the swine 'flu virus. It has since its European launch won the British Toilet Association Awards, gained the Italian AFIDAMP Green Award 2010 for environmental sustainability, Eco-Design and Innovation, and was awarded the Product of the Show Award at SHOP 2010, in Dublin at the end of September.The ionator EXPTM has also just been awarded the HACCP International Certificate of Food Safety as a food-safe aid to manufacturing (cleaning and sanitation).
Slightly larger than a conventional trigger-spray bottle, the Activeion ionator EXP is simply filled with tap water, with no added chemicals.
Technology within the ionator temporarily converts the tap water into ionised water which, sprayed on to surfaces such as glass, stainless steel, laminates,wood,natural stone or marble,breaks down dirt, grease, food residues, and other soil to leave the surface sparkling clean and almost totally free of pathogens.The ionised water that sprays out when you squeeze the trigger has been proved to kill 99.9% of common bacteria plus the H1N1 Type A 2009 swine 'flu virus on hard non-porous surfaces. It also lifts all types of soil and makes it easy to wipe away, leaving surfaces in workplaces, food retailers, hotel kitchens, restaurants, serving areas and washrooms sparklingly clean and safe.
Care homes The care homes profession has particularly welcomed the chemicalfree cleaning provided by the Activeion ionator technology, since care home proprietors not only have high standards of cleanliness and hygiene to maintain, but also have to prevent, for safety reasons, cleaning materials falling into the hands of elderly residents.
It is a fact that a third of the cleaning chemicals used today contain ingredients that can harm people,and are often particularly risky around people with lung disorders or dermatitis.These harmful ingredients are in products for cleaning glass,bathroom and kitchen fixtures,metal,kitchens, carpets, hard floors and many other surfaces.According to SafeWorkers reference organisation in the UK, there are around 100,000 different harmful substances recognised in cleaning products across Europe.
The use of aerosol cleaning sprays in the vicinity of elderly people is not to be recommended, and care home managers have found that Activeion technology helps remove such risks, simply by making such products unnecessary in most cases.
Hospitality In the hotel and restaurant trades, similar concerns about chemicalbased cleaning are being resolved as hotel businesses switch much of their routine cleaning to the use of chemical-free Activeion ionators, thereby gaining greatly improved protection against cross infection among staff and hotel guests, helping to avoid commercially damaging outbreaks of virus infections among customers.
Safety credentials The Activeion product has the highest possible safety profile as determined by the TURI (Toxic Use Reduction Institute - Surface Solutions Laboratory, University of Massachusetts, Lowell, USA).
Copies of the results of laboratory tests and safety accreditation are available on request.
