Enzyme Cleaners: The Best Cleaning Product Ever!
What are enzymes anyway?
Before we dive right into our topic, let’s discover a bit more about enzymes.
Enzymes are powerful and complex protein molecules present in every living cell. As nature’s own housekeepers, these little powerhouses are essential for life. They are found in all living organisms and work as highly selective catalysts to biochemical reactions in cells, which means that with only minimal quantities, enzymes function at extremely high speeds to create a huge reaction. They bring about chemical change (organic or inorganic) and yet they remain completely unaffected. Once they’ve done their job, they are released unchanged and can be used again for another reaction.
All matter must eventually decompose into its simplest form; with the aid of enzymes, acceleration takes place in decomposing and biochemical reactions are sped up hundreds to millions of times. As mentioned above, enzymes are highly selective in their work; they only deal with dead organic and hydrocarbon waste, therefore no living matter will be compromised.
The smart power of enzymes presents us with the ultimate tool for cleaning up behind us in a safe and environmentally friendly way. Enzymes are more like tools that are created to break down large molecules.
Enzyme technology and development
Don’t worry; we won’t bore you with too much history. Only the essentials are mentioned below.
The first enzymes were discovered in 1833, and microbial enzyme technology can be traced back as early as 1896. However, recognition of enzymes being used as industrial catalysts only started to emerge after the 1930s.
Research soon revealed the specific nature of enzymes; that they will only react to what they are supposed to. Different enzymes will digest different foods (i.e. soil matter) and therefore can be selected in the development of cleaning products to achieve a specific purpose. Enzymes are used not only for cleaning products but are recognised for their widespread uses in other industries including food and beverage, agriculture, medicine and energy.
In 2018, the global enzyme industry was estimated to be worth over 8 billion USD and is expected to grow to over 19 billion USD by 2025. This rapid growth is accredited to ongoing discoveries of the seemingly endless uses of the non-toxic and incredibly powerful enzymes.
Why choose enzymes over traditional chemicals?
Though once perceived as fragile and limited by environment, today enzymes are viewed as a robust catalyst. In regards to sustainability and efficiency, the advantages over traditional chemical processes are numerous. They are mentioned below:
- They are much safer for the environment and human health and do not pose the insurmountable risks and adverse reactions attributed to contaminants and chemicals.
- They are favourable to the user, as the near-neutral PH of enzymes helps ensure the cleaning product does not present a risk of corrosion to the surfaces being cleaned.
- Enzymes also have the power to eliminate odour by converting smelling sulphides into odourless and water-soluble sulphates.
- The magic of cleaning with enzymes is that it continues working hours or even days after initial application.
This unique role in enzyme cleaning helps deliver results far superior to traditional cleaners.
How to use enzyme cleaners
The procedure is similar to traditional cleaners; the steps are:
- Make sure you clear the surface before spraying the cleaner
- Spray the area which needs cleaning and allow it to sit
- Let it lay there for 5-10 minutes. You will want to leave it longer, depending on the size of the mess
- Wipe the surface clean with a sponge or cloth.
