LCC cleans without chlorine

LCC Support Services has taken another major step forward in its campaign to preserve the environment. Following extensive trials, LCC is installing Lotus Pro aqueous ozone (AO) systems into the cleaning rooms of many of its larger client sites, thus enabling its staff to provide more hygienic and effective cleaning.

Lotus Pro takes mains water and introduces an extra oxygen atom to an oxygen molecule and water molecules. This creates an efficient natural cleaning agent that breaks down dirt, grease and other contaminants without any toxic solutions. According to LCC, when used as a sanitiser or disinfectant, AO is a broad range anti-microbial agent that works faster and more effectively against pathogens that chlorine bleach, but without the fumes and toxic residues. Regardless of size of building, only one AO unit needs installing in the cleaning cupboard to provide staff with a source of aqueous ozone for a wide range of cleaning tasks.

Lorraine Larman, LCC's safety and training manager, said: “This system is amazing. We recently found that AO would remove carpet stains that no chemical could handle. It is brilliant for use in hospitals, stadia, shopping centres and heavy use washrooms to sanitise toilet seats.”

Lotus Pro is fully tested and exceeds Green Seal Environmental Standards (GS-037) as an industrial cleaner. Testing by the Toxics Use Reduction Institute (TURI) scored 50/50 for cleaning power and 'green benefits'.
