During the corona pandemic our behavior towards the usage of disinfectants has changed drastically. Due to the fear for the coronavirus everything has to be disinfected. This while disinfection is not necessary most of the times. Viruses and bacteria are smart and can adapt extremely quickly. If you continuously tackle such a virus with excessive amounts of disinfectants, it is not inconceivable that they will develop resistance to it sooner or later.
Also the increased use of disinfectants has led to a significant increase in the number of reports of people accidentally getting splashes in their eyes and children accidentally taking a sip of the hand alcohol. Ultimately, the NVIC was consulted by telephone on 552 exposures of people to disinfectants in 2020, compared to an average of 107 reports per year in the previous five years (Service Management, 06-07-2021).
We believe that especially during this pandemic it is important to keep your environment safe. However, doing this chemical free is even safer – seen the above consequences. Therefore, at Flash we always seek to develop eco-friendly solutions that can be used without chemicals:
The Hyginet is the newest single-use professional cleaning wipe of Flash. The name “Hyginet” stands for hygiene: The unique ultra-thin microfibers in these environmentally friendly cleaning wipes ensure a significant reduction of bacteria, germs and viruses on the cleaned surface. Even with only using water (no detergent needed). With the Hyginet professional eco-friendly solution you not only protect your environment from hazardous viruses and bacteria, but you also clean it thoroughly and streaklessly. The microfiber cloth absorbs water or dirt more quickly and removes stubborn stains on all types of hard surfaces. This wipe is easy and safe in use as it prevents cross-contamination and system failures.
With our WET2GO Multi 3 layer mop one can clean a floor of about 20 m2 with just one mop and water. It is hygienic (no cross contamination) time-saving and easy. Due to the microfiber based open structure of the cleaning layer, the dirt gets soaked up into the mop and the surface remains clean and streak free. The advanced barrier film creates a hygienic barricade between the dirt and the frame to which the mop is attached. It also ensures a controlled discharge and reabsorption of the cleaning liquid, which results in an optimal use and an even distribution of the cleaning moisture on the floor. This prevents large pools of liquid and leads to a reduced drying time after cleaning.
