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 reasonably quickly, however, bugs are not as quick, but once sprayed on a carpet or surface, or put down the toilet they keep on working for days and remove the problem at the source – permanently.

What are enzymes?
Don’t be fooled to think that because enzymes are natural they are less effective than chemical cleaners. Enzymes are nature’s very own powerful cleaning tools. Making them the go to choice for Customers who do not want to spray harmful chemicals around their children, pets or home.
Simply put, enzymes are all around us performing millions of important tasks in our bodies and in nature every single day. They are a type of protein that act like a biological catalyst to speed up the break down of organic compounds.
Similarly to how saliva, (which contains enzymes), initiates the digestion process by breaking down food in our mouths, cleaning enzymes use the same ‘enzymatic digestion’ to effectively break down and eradicate the organic proteins present in urine, faeces, vomit, drool, dirt, food, and more.
This process not only makes cleaning easier but also prevents the growth of bad bacteria – the root cause of those unpleasant odours – in the air, on surfaces, and within the fibres of your soft furnishings.
