 Process Cleaning Solutions offers an innovative cleaning process based on four pillars.

1. Cleaning to Protect Public Health

Successful removal of environmental surface contaminants in any commercial, institution or health care environment can be challenging. Aesthetic appearances can be misleading, as visibly clean surfaces are not a good indication of organic debris and microbial contamination. Cleaning with antimicrobial cleaners registered with Health Canada and relying on visual cleanliness alone provides a false sense of security, since organic debris and microbial contamination can still survive, depending on the process used and the type of surfaces cleaned.

Disinfectant cleaner manufacturers and suppliers have in the past focused on disinfecting environmental surfaces with little regard to the science of cleaning. PCS is committed to the process of cleaning environmental surfaces properly, with or without disinfectants, to protect public health.

 
PCS offers a number of Health Canada DIN-registered Disinfectant/Disinfectant Cleaners for use on hard nonporous environmental surfaces in health care facilities, institutions, schools and the hospitality industries. PCS is committed to working with industry cleaning staff, institutional managers, public health officials and infection control to develop and provide the most effective Process Cleaning Solutions and methods, as validated by onsite ATP monitoring of cleaning efficacy.

ATP is adenosine triphosphate and is present in all living cells. It is a key component in the energy transfer system within cells. The presence of high ATP levels is a good indicator of poor hygiene and low ATP levels is an excellent indicator of good hygiene.

There are in addition many opportunities to clean without the use of disinfectants. PCS offers a number of sustainable Process Cleaning Solutions without disinfectants that can also be validated onsite through ATP monitoring.

PCS distribution partners are committed to rigorous staff training and actively participating in finding the best Process Cleaning Solutions for the Canadian Sanitation Industry.

 

2. Cleaning to Protect the Most Sensitive Among Us

PCS is committed to protecting vulnerable populations, including chemically hypersensitive individuals, children, the elderly and hospital and chronic care patients, all of whom can be adversely affected by organic or chemical contamination of the indoor environment.

PCS Process Cleaning Solutions contain no volatile ingredients, contain only natural ingredients and have no added scents. They are used with processes that effectively remove organic contamination from the building environment without depositing toxic chemical residues. (Such residues can be more hazardous than the organic contamination they are intended to remove.)

All non-disinfectant PCS Process Cleaning Solutions are independently certified by the Envirodesic Certification Program. Envirodesic is an independent certification organization that certifies products for maximum indoor air quality, minimum environmental impact and sustainability, including the suitability for use around chemically hypersensitive individuals.

 

3. Cleaning to Protect the Environment

Most consumers have a strong desire to go green in their procurement choices for cleaning chemicals. PCS is committed to producing cleaning products that do not add chemical contamination to either the indoor or the outdoor environment. All Process Cleaning Solutions are formulated with the following core principles:

  • - no surfactants
  • - no synthetic chemicals
  • - no volatile ingredients
  • - all ingredients are listed on the label

Synthetic detergent chemicals such as surfactants have prolonged impacts on aquatic and bacterial life, and can act synergistically with other chemical pollutants.

 

4. Cleaning to Prevent the Spread of Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria

The European Commission Scientific Committee on Emerging and Newly Identified Health Risks states that current scientific evidence (including bacteriological, biochemical and genetic data) does indicate that the use or misuse of certain active substances in biocidal products in various settings may contribute to the increased occurrence of antibiotic resistant bacteria, both in humans and in the environment.

Current practice for protecting public health involves the use of disinfectants or disinfectant cleaners. Disinfectants are chemicals registered with Health Canada that are capable of destroying both beneficial and harmful bacteria. They should not be considered environmentally sustainable because as currently used they can change the balance of nature and contribute to the further development of drug resistant bacterial populations.

PCS is committed to developing cleaning processes that are highly effective at maximizing the removal of organic microbial contamination from environmental surfaces, while minimizing prolonged residual toxic chemical exposures. We encourage the use of procedures that include an effective, verifiable cleaning step that physically removes bacteria and organic debris from environmental surfaces.
