Bio Enzyme, uses natures bugs to clean up our mess. The Bacillus bug present in Bio Enzyme is not harmful in any way to humans or animals. It is a harmless spore and is present both in soil and in the environment. The Bacillus used in Bio Enzyme is a single celled bacteria species (prokaryotic), which means that it can not interact with the environment. It is particularly well suited to cleaning applications as a consequence of being safe and easy to handle and is not too fussy about what it eats. When the Bio Enzyme is diluted at the point of use, (as per instructions), the bacillus spores germinate (wake up) and look for a carbon source to eat (i.e. any grot will do they are very flexible chappies), they then replicate rapidly (doubling in concentration about every 20 minutes), until the carbon source is exhausted, at which point their job is done and they die off.
However, it is how the Bacillus consumes the carbon source, (i.e. the mess or spillage), that is of interest. The bacteria produce the enzymes, the enzymes digest dirt and grot and the only by-products are water and carbon dioxide – this is safe cleaning in action.
But, in todays’ world, compared to the irritating and harmful chemicals in use in off the shelf cleaning products, bugs are slow and they work best overnight. They need time to germinate and replicate. If you have a dirty mark on carpet a chemical product will clean it in seconds. Bugs are not as quick, but once sprayed on a carpet or surface, or put down the toilet they keep on working for days.
Born out of nature, doing natures work without the use of harmful chemicals.
