Sustainable Cleaning With Stabilized Aqueous Ozone (SAO)
Nowadays, sustainability and environmental concerns are important considerations for both service providers and consumers, no matter what industry you’re in. With global warming in the news and a steady increase in population, we are all faced with the dilemma of how to be more gentle to our environment. As a commercial cleaning company, we at New England Cleaning Services, Inc. understand the significance of green cleaning and offer services that are both effective but also sustainable in order to meet the needs of both our clients and our planet. One of our most environmentally friendly solutions is Tersano’s Stabilized Aqueous Ozone (SAO).
What is Tersano’s SAO?
Tersano’s SAO is a unique, advanced way to clean, sanitize, and deodorize. It converts oxygen (O2) in the air into ozone (O3) and infuses it into cold tap water to create a powerful solution that can be used on a wide range of surfaces. The SAO is strong enough to kill bacteria and viruses and eradicates mold, mildew, germs, odors, and other contaminants without any residue. There’s also no storing or mixing of chemicals required and the SAO converts back to water and oxygen with ease, which is ideal for many large, commercial facilities that would otherwise require large amounts of cleaning chemicals.
How is SAO a sustainable way to clean?
Many commercial cleaning companies use standard methods that require large quantities of water in order to rinse and flush the strong cleaning chemicals they use. This way of cleaning is not only wasteful when you think about the millions of litres of water used, but it is also harmful to our environment because the chemicals that are dumped leach into surrounding groundwater, rivers, streams, and landfills. SAO eliminates this chemical dumping and excessive water waste by converting tap water into a cleaning solution in as needed amounts. In fact, a 2-year study at a major Vancouver hospital found that 90% less water was used when it switched from traditional chemical cleaners to SAO.
Recognized for its sustainability and safety
SAO is not only more sustainable but also safer for everyone because there are no chemical residues or harmful fumes that are associated with traditional cleaners. Hospitals and other medical facilities especially benefit from avoiding these chemicals as they could lead to health risks and problems. SAO’s safety and sustainability have been recognized by top regulatory organizations including the Environmental Protection Agency, Green Seal, and the USDA National Organic Program.
