Economical Environmentally Responsible Commercial Cleaning 

We often think of the switch to environmentally responsible commercial cleaning as requiring a high upfront investment. That isn’t the case with PathoSans. When you eliminate the chemical manufacturer and generate your own green cleaning solutions on-site, you’ll discover new economies and efficiencies. PathoSans electrochemically-activated solutions, produced using just salt, water and electricity, often cost less than conventional chemicals. They have a 30-day-or-greater shelf life, meaning little to no solution should go to waste. With multiple financing options available, it is easy to size a PathoSans system to meet the needs of your facility and budget. 

“The product is non-toxic to humans. It is made without carcinogens of any kind. The product has been tested to product performance requirements. So when you see the Green Seal on the packaging, not only are you getting a product that you know has been formulated according to the Green Seal requirements, you are also getting a product that works.”
Mark Stanland, Vice President of Client Services, Green Seal
“With PathoSans, we have reduced our need to train our staff on which chemicals can be combined and which chemicals can be used where. Plus, we don’t have as many truck deliveries as we did before. We use only these two products in cleaning our facility at this time.”
Mike Fitzgerald, General Manager, MIT Endicott House
“In my 20 years of facilities operations, the PathoSans system is the best cleaning solution I have ever used. PathoSans is environmentally responsible, less expensive than purchasing bottles, drums or chemical mixing stations and very user friendly. The staff loves it and the building is by far the cleanest I’ve worked in.”
Sean Langer, Director of Operations, KFC Yum Center
“Knowing it was not going to harm our housekeepers using the products day-in and day-out was vital.”
Luz Alfaro, Director of Housekeeping, The Marker Hotel San Francisco

Control Your Costs and Supply with On Site Generation 

Conventional cleaning chemicals are priced to cover ingredient, manufacturing, shipping, handling, packaging, and administration costs. By producing solutions right in your facility, you avoid some of this expense. Plus you get the added benefit of generating as much cleaner and sanitizer as you need, when you need it. In addition, PathoClean® general-purpose cleaner and PathoCide® disinfectant/sanitizer replace a whole host of harsh chemical cleaners, drastically reducing and simplifying your inventory.

The Cost of Labor with Conventional Cleaning Chemicals 

Dangerous chemicals require staff training. Training takes time and money as well as regular re-trainings to ensure the information stays fresh and accurate. When trainings are missed, errors can happen that lead to ineffective cleaning practices. 

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook, “Janitors and building cleaners have a higher rate of injuries and illnesses than the national average. Workers sometime suffer minor cuts, bruises, and burns from machines, tools, and chemicals. As a result, workers are increasingly required to take safety training and ergonomics instruction.” 

Not only can building cleaners be injured by improper use of hazardous conventional cleaning chemicals, but they can also fail to disinfect surfaces to healthy standards. Most conventional cleaning chemicals only promise effectiveness when left on the surface for the recommended dwell time, which can be as long as five to 10 minutes. PathoSans solutions are effective in seconds. See time kill studies for more on dwell time.

PathoSans multi-surface cleaner and disinfectant save labor by significantly reducing training time because the system and solutions are easy to use. In addition, using PathoSans solutions can reduce the time spent waiting for chemicals to dwell and boost productivity- without compromising cleaning effectiveness.
