Biotechnology at the service of housekeeping.

Tuesday, May 18, 2021

By definition, biotechnology indicates "any technique using living beings (micro-organisms, animals, plants), generally after modification of their characteristics, for the industrial manufacture of biological or chemical compounds (drugs, industrial raw materials).

OECD definition.

In addition to the economic aspect, biotechnology allows us to offer cleaner alternatives that are respectful of the environment and also of our health.

Biotechnology has therefore developed enzyme-based solutions in the cleaning sector.


But what is an enzyme?


An enzyme is a protein from living cells. It has the particularity of reducing to microparticles the dirt for which it has been programmed, it is a war machine against dirt. It is a natural biological active ingredient that boosts the efficiency of the cleaning product.


At Superior Sany Solutions, our laboratories have created non-corrosive, non-erosive and ultra-concentrated products with enzymes for:
- Control of bad odors
- Cleaning efficiently and quickly
- Unblocking difficult drains and/or clogged pipes


In conclusion, the effectiveness of enzymatic cleaning products is the ideal solution to continue the ecological transition in the cleaning sector.

What is the Ecologo certification ?

Saturday, April 17, 2021

What does this logo mean?

This logo is affixed to products that have been certified Ecologo.


To obtain the Ecologo certification, the product is evaluated according to environmental criteria such as the reduction of air and water pollutants, the reduction of energy consumption and GHG emissions, a better management of residual materials and a better use of fibers (ideally recycled fibers).


Ecologo certification helps consumers recognize products that respect the environment. It is the only third party approved ecological qualification in Canada. Beware of certifications created by companies to reassure their customers but which in fact mean nothing.


Concerned about the importance of protecting the environment, we offer a selection of nearly 170 certified cleaning, disinfecting, personal hygiene and maintenance products.


Look for the logo on the label or in the product description on our website.

Why are we talking about pH in cleaning products?

Wednesday, February 17, 2021

The pH, which stands for hydrogen potential, is a measure of the acidity or alkalinity of an aqueous solution.


A pH scale is used to determine the degree of acidity and alkalinity of a cleaning product.


The pH scale is divided into steps from 0 to 14, where 0 represents the highest degree of acidity and 14 the lowest degree of acidity. The central point of the scale (7) is neutral. The pH of distilled water is 7, which is considered the purest possible neutral solution.

Understanding this scale makes the cleaning job easier and avoids using the wrong product for the job at hand.

For example :


For the removal of lime, calcium, rust, juice or coffee :
An acid cleaner with a pH between 1 and 7 should be used. Attention these require special care to avoid damaging the surfaces.

For painted surfaces, waxed floors and wood floors :
A neutral cleaner with a pH between 6 and 8 is recommended.

For hand cleaning :
A product with a neutral pH between 7 and 8.

For windows, mirrors, cars :
To avoid discoloration and unwanted streaks an alkaline detergent with a pH between 8 and 11 is recommended.

In general, vegetal, animal or human stains can be removed with an alkaline product and for the removal of accumulation of mineral, metallic or saline substances with an acidic product.

Be careful, it is important not to mix the products. In case of doubt, consult one of our in-store specialists.

What does dilution mean?

Tuesday, January 19, 2021

Dilution is the process of reducing the concentration of a solution.

Some of our products are available in a concentrated version. When using them it is important to first dilute them before use as they will be too strong and may cause damage.

When manipulating the chemistries while using our products, one often encounters the following formulas:

Dilution 1:4, 1+4 or 20%.

These formulas apply to liquids and therefore refer to volumes and are all equivalent.

How to use them?

dilution

The 1 to the left of 1 : 4 or 1 + 4 refers to the concentrated liquid to be diluted.

The 4 on the right refers to the water (solvent) that will be used to make the dilution.

The 1:4, 1 + 4 or 1 + 20 percent all refer to the same dilution. The one in which we add one volume of concentrate to be diluted to four volumes of water (solvent).

The result is a diluted solution of a total of 5 units of reference volume.

The dilution percentage is simply the proportion of initial concentrate (to be diluted) in the final (diluted) solution. In our example, the final volume of diluted solution contains one fifth of the initial concentrate (to be diluted), i.e. 20%.

Dilution allows us to use the necessary quantity of product according to our needs. It is important to follow the dilution instructions and to respect the period of effectiveness of the product once diluted.

The pandemic brings its share of concerns and questions about the level of cleanliness and salubrity of the spaces we share with others.

How can I ensure that my work environment is not only clean but also safe? That everything at home is healthy to prevent the spread?

What is the difference between cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting a surface?

Here's a brief description of the difference between cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting:

Cleaning a surface consists of removing organic and mineral residues. This is called physical cleanliness.

Our product suggestion for your floors: PROFIL-4

Sanitizing a surface consists of reducing the micro-organisms, which remain in place after cleaning, to a level that is safe for health. This procedure is used in the food industry.

Disinfecting a surface consists of destroying practically the entire population of microorganisms to avoid cross-contamination. For example on children's toys in daycare centers or on door handles in public places.

Our product suggestion : GLDI-H202-1S12 . Ready to use.

What is the DIN ?

Wednesday, November 18, 2020

The Drug Identification Number (DIN) is an eight-digit computer-generated number that is assigned by Health Canada before being marketed in Canada.

A DIN lists the characteristics of the product: manufacturer, product name, ingredient(s), strength of the medicinal ingredient, dosage form and route of administration.

The DIN is unique and serves as a tool for tracking and recalling products on the market, inspections and quality monitoring.

It is therefore very important before purchasing a hard surface disinfectant to verify that the DIN is listed on the product label.

If you are unsure about the product or company, you can check the product on the Health Canada website by registering the product.
