-Never in modern times has there been a more urgent need to disinfect and sanitise- however, what is the collateral damage to our enviroment and ourselves in the constant exposure to toxic substances in traditional cleaning chemical compounds?
-Two Queensland based brands have made a simple switch to offer non toxic yet effective solutions across the country.
-Numerous studies have shown that exposure to most frequently used disinfectant compound: viz, QUATS, sodium hypochlorite, hydrogen proxide, alcohol and glutaraehyde, leads to an increased risk of COPD, asthma and eye irritation on health workers and individuals when used regularly (Casey et al 2017, Dumas et al 2019, Weimann et al 2019)
-Disinfectant chemicals can create secondary by products such as trihalomethanes or halo acetic acids when they interact with other materials (Sedlak and Von Guten 2011).
