Cleaning After Flooding

by Autumn Ryan, Founder and CEO As I’m writing this, Hurricane Laura has become a Category 4 and is just a few miles from the Louisianna/Texas shore. There will be floods. So I looked to an OSHA Hurricane Facts website to find out what they recommend: “During a flooding event, there is an increased danger of contracting bacterial, viral and protozoal diseases. Floodwaters can be contaminated with sewage and decaying animal and human remains. Therefore, disinfection of contaminated hands, clothing, tools/equipment, […]

Cleaning The Wrong Way

by Dana Ryan, Certified Clinically Clean® Specialist Fox News broke a story last week that “amid coronavirus, more than a third of US adults are using cleaning products incorrectly.” The story cited a recent study commissioned by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and claimed “these practices pose a risk of severe tissue damage and corrosive injury and should be strictly avoided.” The survey was conducted in May 2020. There were 502 respondents and questions ranged from what respondents knew […]

Antimicrobial vs. Antibacterial? What’s The Difference?

by Autumn Ryan, Founder and CEO Both antimicrobials and antibacterials act on different types of microorganisms. Antibacterials destroy or inhibit only the growth of bacteria. Antimicrobials destroy or inhibit the growth of all microorganisms, including bacteria, fungi and viruses. Therefore antimicrobials provide a broader scope of protection than antibacterials. In fact, using plain soap and water to wash your hands may provide greater protection from colds and flu than antibacterial hand soap or wipes. Ban On Triclosan You may remember that […]

What is Biofilm?

by Autumn Ryan, Founder and CEO I feel like I should disclaim this article as not suitable for all audiences. If you’re squeamish, you might be grossed out, and you’ll definitely be more careful about what you touch from now on. The subject is biofilms on hard, non-porous surfaces. Biofilms are communities of microorganisms that are attached to surfaces and play a significant role in bacterial infections.   There are either four or five stages of biofilm development. First the initial […]

What does it mean to have a neutral pH?

by Autumn Ryan, Founder and CEO Neutral solutions have a pH of 7.0. Water is an excellent example of a neutral solution. Add a solution to water and the pH (or potential of hydrogen) changes. Your lemonade becomes acidic. Your bicarbonate of soda becomes alkaline or basic. The pH Scale The pH scale goes from 1 to 14 with 7 being neutral. Anything below 7 is considered to be acidic. Anything above 7 is considered to be basic. Because it is […]

Germ Kill Claims

by Autumn Ryan, Founder and CEO I’m seeing so much misinformation lately about what disinfectants can do. The one that reached my inbox that made me laugh most was the one that claimed protection from viruses on surfaces for seven years at a cost of $1,500 per gallon. Seven years? $1,500 per gallon? Really? Even if it were scientifically possible for anything to achieve that kind of protection at a high kill rate, would it really be worth $1,500 per gallon? […]

What Is Electrostatic Disinfection?

by Autumn Ryan, Founder and CEO Using an electrostatic sprayer to disinfect is a way of efficiently killing germs. Electrostatic sprayers work by charging the liquid disinfectant as it passes through the sprayer nozzle. This generates charged droplets that repel one another and actively seek out surfaces, which they stick to and even wrap around to coat all sides. Positively Attracted An electrostatic sprayer can be engineered to produce either positively or negatively charged particles. Most electrostatic sprayers generate positively charged particles, because most […]

How To Kill A Germ

by Autumn Ryan, Founder and CEO The COVID-19 pandemic has taught us many things, but in my mind, the most important lesson is that germs want to survive. It’s basic biology. Germs want to live and reproduce. And that is exactly the reason that viruses and bacteria become immune to antimicrobial cleaning solutions. It’s why “new and improved” cleaners are always being developed using “even stronger toxic chemicals.” And it’s why we must adopt the most efficient ways of killing germs—not […]

What You Don’t Know About Disinfectants Can Hurt You

by Autumn Ryan, Founder and CEO of Aseptic Health It takes a janitor to know a janitor! I started out as a janitor the day after I graduated from college. What I’ve learned over 20 plus years is that we’ve been brainwashed about safe cleaning. Pine. Lavendar. Bleach. They are toxic. And they are harming our hands, lungs and environment and largely because we don’t read the label. It took the Covid-19 pandemic to alert most consumers to the fact […]
