ECA solution is non-hazardous and non-toxic, and hypoallergenic, making it safe to apply by users. The solution is a combined cleaning agent and a powerful disinfectant, so both cleaning and disinfection tasks can be completed in a single application.
ECA solutions eliminate microorganisms virtually on contact – this can be seen in this video. Click here to watch. This means that no dwell time is required for most tasks, leading to more effective and efficient cleaning regimes by cleaning staff.
Manufactured synthetic chemicals carry high carbon emission levels due to manufacturing process, transport, plastic containerisation, and package and waste disposal. Using ECA systems and making cleaning and disinfectant solutions at the user’s site dramatically reduces the carbon footprint and environmental impact for the user and their company.
Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) is the key active substance of ECA solutions. HOCl is also produced by macroorganisms, including humans, when bacteria, viruses, fungi or spores take hold or skin is damaged. HOCl is naturally produced and mobilised by the body to fight infections. In many countries, HOCl is used as a wound-care treatment or in dental work to provide natural healing for infection control.
Because the human body recognises HOCl it means that ECA solution is not harmful or toxic. On the other hand, many synthetic cleaning and disinfection chemicals can be detrimental to skin and the respiratory system – as witnessed by the danger signs on containers. ECA solution application requires no PPE for users and requires no hazardous warning vectors on the solutions.
