In what is a significant market trend and one that reflects the move to sustainability, increasing numbers of major city CBD sites are adopting ‘chemical-free enzyme cleaning’.
“The use of enzymes to clean is not new in the industry but in the past has not been totally successful,” explained Clearchoice Products’ principal John Spiers. “The main reason for this is because different strains of enzymes when put together in a formula attack each other rather than the dirt.
“However, Melbourne manufacturer Enzyme Wizard has the technology that allows the different enzyme strains to co-exist together in the same formulation. Consequently, the enzymes can identify all different types of dirt and work together in a positive way to maximise results. Enzyme Wizard directors Jamie Flinkier and Raymond Subel have been demonstrating the Enzyme Wizard range to a large number ofcleaning companies and institutions over the past two years. It’s said their company’s range has been ‘widely accepted in the Victorian market as the way of the future in chemical free cleaning’.
Some six months ago Sydney BSC Ezko Property Services conducted trials using Enzyme Wizard products on Sydney CBD sites… and it found clients very receptive to the trials and to their results. Ezko’s principals Richard Kowalik, Charles Vasilas, Max Bekir and Vincent Femia have been at the forefront of this exercise as their company’s policy is to implement environmentally friendly cleaning. When asked by Ezko to come up with an environmental cleaning regime, Clearchoice Products proferred the Enzyme Wizard range.
“It has two main products to clean most surfaces and is chemicalfree. Ezko embraced the new system where only the enzyme and microfibre cloth are used to clean,” Spiers explained. Ezko’s contract manager Harkan Hasam, who oversaw the trials said, “all the applications were better than what was expected. All the cleaners using the product were also very happy as there is no need for colour coding because there are only two products used, one for the floor and one for all the surfaces above the floor.
“It is so easy to use and because it is chemical-free, there is no danger to our cleaners in relation to spills or accidental mixing ofharsh chemical. They love using it.” There is also a specific Enzyme Wizard range that tackles jobs such as carpets; mould and mildew; and internal drain cleaning ie., urinals and grease traps.
