Recognition of the value of aqueous ozone ewater is steadily increasing. Starting decades ago with the treatment of drinking water and swimming pools, the use of ozone ewater spread to food processing facilities, and nowadays it is finding its place in the world of general custodial care.
Universities, business campuses, restaurants, high schools, entertainment sites and more are all turning to ewater as way to clean without chemicals. But it’s not just for the sake of eliminating chemicals. It’s also because of the anti-microbial value of ozone to help control unwanted germs and microorganisms. Faced with the prospect of having to use far too much chemical-based disinfectant, many of which present health risks of their own, conscientious facilities managers are incorporating ozone ewater to minimize the requirement of harsh disinfectants.
Consider this recent story from Corrections.com that highlights the need for microbial control and the promise of aqueous ozone ewater for prisons. Here’s an excerpt:
For many correctional administrators, the way to address infections that are spread via contaminated surfaces is to step up the use of EPA-registered disinfectants. “EPA-registered” means the disinfectant has been tested and approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. However, this alone will not address the problem. Read more…
The opportunity of ozone ewater is that, when used according to directions, cleaning can be undertaken with a persistent sanitizing effect – and done so without any risk to people or property. When ozone ewater is used sanitizing is extended to surfaces that are not normally disinfected. This reduces the need for chemical disinfectants and can, at minimum, limit their use to areas like bathroom fixtures.
After all, why trade one problem – harmful microorganisms – for a different problem – the overuse of chemicals linked to many types of health risks? Ozone ewater presents an opportunity to do more with less.
