Common Questions about Aqueous Ozone Cleaning Technology
How does it work? Is it safe? What happens to the residue?
Omaha - September 14, 2015 - Now that more facilities such as schools, restaurants, office buildings, and healthcare settings are selecting engineered water or no-chemical cleaning systems such as aqueous ozone, it is becoming clear that custodial workers often have questions about them, including why they are being adopted in the first place. To help us address some of these issues, Matt Montag, sales manager for CleanCore™ Technologies, manufacturer of aqueous ozone equipment, lists some of the questions that usually come up:
Is ozone safe?
Yes it is safe. Ozone is found naturally in the atmosphere and is safe to use for both commercial and residential cleaning.
Do I need to wear protective clothing?
It is not necessary to wear protective clothing when working with Aqueous Ozone; however, as with all cleaning, custodial workers are encouraged to wear recommended PPE.
How does It work?
Aqueous ozone systems create ozone mechanically and then infuse it into water; when this solution is applied to surfaces it has proven to be effective at removing soils and eliminating germs, odors, stains, mold, mildew, and other contaminants.
Is there a residue left on the surface after cleaning?
No. This is one of the key benefits of this technology. After cleaning, the water simply evaporates and the ozone reverts back to oxygen.
Why are we transferring to aqueous ozone cleaning systems?
"The best way to answer this question is to say that these systems are proven effective and are often referred to as one step beyond traditional green cleaning says Montag. "Essentially they have no impact on health or the environment."
About CleanCore™ Technologies
CleanCore is an innovative cleaning technology that infuses cold water with ozone gas to create aqueous ozone, a natural and robust cleaning solution. Along with being effective, ozonated water is viewed as a more "natural" cleaning agent because ozone is naturally found in the atmosphere. This form of no-chemical cleaning is often referred to as "one step beyond green cleaning" because there is essentially no impact on the environment when cleaning with a CleanCore system.
