Why cleaning with stabilized hydrogen peroxide is a benefit for higher education? What are the challenges universities face with cleaning? What are the latest industry compliance issues? To learn about Hydrogen Peroxide technology! Our Purpose Today…
Budget Restrictions Staff attrition and on-going training Variety of surfaces to clean Dozens of chemicals Tools for applications Work-loading Bridge the gap between Procurement and Facilites University Challenges
LEED (USGBC) Sustainability DfE EPA- Registrations USDA Biopreferred/Biobased listings Green certifications (Eco-Logo, Green Seal) Industry Compliance Initiatives
Dave Thompson- Green Clean Institute Do you have green cleaning certification? o Technician- 102 o Manager- 202 o Executive- 302 o Consultant- On site On-line course Cause and Effect
Are you certified in the industry? ISSA- CIMS o Cleaning Industry Management Standards o Extensive training o 6-8 months to complete o CIMS applies to management, operations, performance systems, and processes.
Additional CIMS Information The new CIMS-GB Criteria and Designation o To help meet and grow demand for green and LEED certification, the Cleaning Industry Management Standard & Certification Program has been expanded to include new “Green Building” (GB) criteria and a new optional GB designation.
Removing soil load Dwell time for quats = 10 minutes No residual kill time Super bugs Cotton mops Detergent residues Best Practice/procedure What We’re Doing
EPA Registration Neutral pH (multiple surfaces) Stabilized Hydrogen Peroxide Green USDA LEED Hydrogen Peroxide: Cleaning for Health Smart Metrics lead to Proven Outcomes 1 product, 2 dilutions 95% of cleaning Chemical reduction in inventory Increased attendance rates
People do not fail, processes fail. Abundant information on cause and effect. Where are the processes and application outlined to achieve desired results? Safe – Simple – Savings Outcomes Realized?
Question: How many types of stains are there in the world? Answer: Two. An alkaline and an acid. Question: Then why do we need 30+ different cleaners? Food for Thought
Hydrogen Peroxide = Acid 95% of what we are confronted with Use Green solution for light-duty cleaning Use Red solution for heavy-duty cleaning Acid Stains
Alkaline Stains Look for water sources o Soap scum o Tile/grout build up o Water fountains o Shower rooms o Swimming pools Use an acid that is water soluble o Won’t damage fixtures o No hazardous fumes
Green Solution: Cost Benefit Hydrogen peroxide is not expensive o Green solution = $0.05 per quart$0.20 per gal 1 case = 2048 quart spray bottles of diluted product Use for general wipe down Glide and go Use for floor cleaning, autoscrubbers
Red Solution: Cost Benefit Hydrogen peroxide is not expensive o Red solution = $0.50 per quart $2.00 per gal Productivity 5 min. dwell time vs. 10 min. dwell time No residual build-up Soil load removed “Take the home away from the host”
Chemical composition o Hydrogen peroxide (H 2 O 2 ) Dismutation takes place Reduction occurs Oxidation – 1 molecule of oxygen off gases H 2 O is residual = NO BUILD UP All water safe surfaces (carpet, tile, grout, glass etc.) o 1 product, 2 dilutions = 95% general cleaning Why it works…
Hydrogen peroxide compound/compound = BOOM! Absorb with dry microfiber cloth Remove soil load with no residue CLEAN CLOTH + CLEAN SOLUTION = CLEAN SURFACE How it works…
Stack soil load Breeding ground for bio-films Touch points become compromised The virus and bacteria can transfer “Take the home away from the host” “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” Prevention Why residue is a problem
Short answer: NO. Keep it simple. Review the MSDS sheets. Not the chemical, but the chemistry. Using hydrogen peroxide will have you off-gas other chemical in the solution. Are all H 2 O 2 products the same?
String mops Mop buckets Down press wringers Are we moving dirt around?
To clean with something that heals To use pesticides/poison (EPA registered product) Quats have their place Isolation- nurse’s office (higher education) Biologic spills- blood, vomit What makes sense?
H 2 Orange 2 Concentrate 117 ™ H 2 Orange 2 Concentrate 117™ is an EPA registered… Multi-purpose cleaner, degreaser, sanitizer, virucide*, HBV** and deodorizer. Concentrate 117 meets or exceeds the strictest of environmental standards and regulations. H 2 Orange 2 Concentrate 117 Sustainability Facts: -Low VOC’s -Biodegradable -Does not contain asthmagens -Unlike other antimicrobial active ingredients, Hydrogen Peroxide rapidly degrades to water and oxygen leaving no antimicrobial residue in the environment to contribute to microbial resistance. *When used as directed Concentrate 117™ is EPA registered to kill Herpes Simplex virus Type 2**, Influenza A2/Japan, HBV (Hepatitis B Virus)** and HIV-1 (Human Immunodeficiency Virus). **Except in California.
1 Concentrate, 2 Dilutions = 95% of General Cleaning H 2 Orange 2 Concentrate 117 ™ Cleans... Glass & Stainless Steel All Hard Floors Restroom Sanitizer/Virucide* Carpet Spots Carpet Food Grease Urine & Garbage Odors Tile & Grout And all other water safe surfaces! *When used as directed Concentrate 117™ is EPA registered to kill Herpes Simplex virus Type 2**, Influenza A2/Japan, HBV (Hepatitis B Virus)** and HIV-1 (Human Immunodeficiency Virus). **Except in California.
What You Can Replace with 117 glass cleaner stainless steel polish/cleaner neutral floor cleaner restroom cleaner sanitizer/virucide * … thats ONE dispenser and ONE chemical to purchase for almost ALL of your cleaning tasks. carpet spotter carpet cleaner detergent food degreaser deodorizer tile & grout renovator H 2 Orange 2 Concentrate 117 ™ replaces: *When used as directed Concentrate 117™ is EPA registered to kill Herpes Simplex virus Type 2**, Influenza A2/Japan, HBV (Hepatitis B Virus)** and HIV-1 (Human Immunodeficiency Virus). **Except in California.
Surprising and Welcome Savings Fewer products = easier ordering & less wasted space. Safe to use on all water-safe surfaces. No surface damage in your facility from product misuse! Non-corrosive, meaning it won’t hurt your staff! Reduce worker compensation claims due to cleaning chemical toxicity or irritation! Competitive RTU cost… All these benefits without hurting your bottom line. Providing bacterial and viral kill on all hard non-porous surfaces means fewer sick days for workers, students and occupants. Concentrate 117™ Training Video: Easily train custodial staff with minimal effort and time.
LEED Certification Credits The USGBC (United States Green Building Council) is a non-profit organization committed to expanding sustainable buildings practices. They are working to advance structures that are environmentally responsible, profitable and healthy places to work. One of the USGBC initiatives is the LEED-EB: O&M (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design – Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance) certification. One of the credits available under the Indoor Environmental Quality (EQ) section of the LEED- EB: O&M is credit 3.4-3.6: Green Cleaning: Purchase of Sustainable Cleaning Products and Materials. H 2 Orange 2 Concentrate 117 meets the requirements for this credit!! This code states that a cleaning product must meet the California Code of Regulations maximum allowable VOC levels for the specific product category. H 2 Orange 2 Concentrate 117 VOC percentages are below California Code of Regulations maximum allowable VOC levels for their specific non-aerosol product categories.
