Single-celled organism that is not visible to the naked eye and can be found everywhere in our surroundings.
Bacteria are micro-organisms that consist of a single cell. They do not contain a solid core and the DNA (genetic material) is “openly” in the cell.
Unlike viruses, bacteria can multiply by division.
Good and bad bacteria?
Our products work on the basis of good bacteria but without attacking the bad bacteria directly because then it might mutate; like the hospital bacteria.
The good bacteria take actually the breeding ground away from bad bacteria causing them to die off so that our bacteria gain the upper hand.
This creates a healthy biological environment.
There are several bad bacterial species (and funghi) that e.g. can spoil food and be a danger to your health. If you eat food with bad bacteria in it, they are usually destroyed by stomach acid. So you will be protected by your immune system. But if this ingenious system is not working properly or there are large numbers of bad bacteria present at the same time, you can get sick.
Working in environments where bad bacteria flow through the air or may come into contact with your skin, they can be equally harmful.
Examples of bad bacteria are salmonella, legionella, listeria, staphylococcus,..
In your body there are billions of bacteria alive : good and bad. Most of them are located in your intestines and form the intestinal flora, nowadays called ‘microbiota’, which plays a crucial role for our immune system and our general health. If bad bacteria get the upper hand, it can cause health problems such as diarrhea, constipation, infections…
Probiotics are “good” bacteria that help to keep your intestinal flora in balance so that you stay healthy. This same principle also applies for our products. So, although we think at the word bacterium as a bad thing, there are also good bacteria that help us and thereofor we like to work with them together!
Bacteria reproduce by dividing itselfs in two parts. In optimal conditions bacteria can divide every 20 minutes.
Some species even divide every 10 minutes.
In 8 hours, under favorable conditions, one bacterium can have 16 million ‘copies’ of themselves!

Or creating a healthy and stable microbial community.
This is a very strong aspect of our products together with the onsite breaking down of pollution instead of moving it.
This microscopic cleaning results in sustainable en efficient cleaning and hygiene, no resistance, environmentally friendly, safe in use and…cost saving!
