Many people have asked: “What is activated water?” Simply put, activated water is a green cleaning technology that requires less chemicals than other solutions. Scientists created it initially by applying a tiny amount of electricity to water, creating both positively and negatively charged water ions. This, in turn, electrolyses the water. Now, when this solution is applied to a dirty countertop, the charged ions attach to the dirt and grime and help lift it away, leaving a spotless and shiny surface.
Consequently, green cleaning system manufacturers have created the following equipment based on activated water:
1. Electrolysed Water
As we have already explained, an electrolysed water system applies an electrical charge to water. The formula helps eliminate the need for floor-care chemicals (which is in fact a huge step forward for green cleaning as floor-care chemicals are one of the most harmful cleaning agents around). Electrolysed water is also highly effective cleaning floors, commercial facilities and more.
An electroporation system takes a low level of electricity, breaks down the walls of the bacterial cells on your countertop or floor, and kills them. Thus, germs and bacteria are immediately zapped off surfaces.
3. Aqueous Ozone
An aqueous ozone system uses electricity to add an extra atom to water. This consequently turns it into an ozone. As the solution is applied to a surface, the extra atom attacks dirt, grime, and residue and eliminates it, leaving just oxygen and water (which later evaporate).
Things To Note
While activated water is indeed an extremely “green” way to clean and sanitize surfaces, it is not recognized as an EPA-registered disinfectant. If you need to disinfect your surfaces (i.e. in medical facilities), then an EPA-registered disinfected is necessary.
Regardless, each and every technology described above shows an immense amount of promise and has the potential to change modern cleaning for the better.
