They are effective in their application and have been specifically formulated for use in our environment. All products within the EarthSmart® range are non-hazardous according to SafeWork Australia criteria and when used according to the directions on the label, EarthSmart® is non-toxic to humans or animals.
Achieving whole product biodegradability has been a key priority for the development of EarthSmart® environmental cleaning products because it is the entire product that eventually enters the environment,not its individual ingredients.
A new concept of ALL NATURAL, highly biodegradable cleaning products for commercial use exists called Citrus Resources. These products help to sustain the environment and are safer to use yet they are powerful enough for commercial use. We believe that it is time for all responsible people to start doing something about helping to protect the environment now - NOT when forced to by legislation, as then it will be too late.
Citrus Resources has taken simple, renewable and harvested citrus crops and other plantation by products and turned them into natural, highly biodegradable cleaning products, many of which are approved by Good Environmental Choice Australia.
General, shared areas require regular cleaning as they often get the most foot traffic. Keeping these areas clean is essential to ensuring appearance and hygiene are kept at optimum levels.

It is important to protect fabrics and to keep them looking new for longer, as well as smelling clean and fresh. Citrus Resources laundry solutions have a natural citrus fragrance and contain no artificial colours, preservatives or perfume, which make them attractive for people sensitive to chemical allergies.

Clean carpets and furnishings are more visually pleasing, potentially longer-lasting, and healthier. The removal of stains, dirt, grit, sand, and allergens in carpets and upholstery can be achieved by several methods, both traditional and modern. In general the longer the stain material remains in the carpet, the higher the chance of permanent colour change, even if all the original stain material is removed. Immediately blotting (not rubbing) the stain material as soon as possible will help reduce the chances of permanent colour change.
Carpets and upholsteries are valuable assets in commercial, industrial and domestic buildings. Citrus Resource products can help clean, maintain, enhance and protect these assets right across their lifetime.

DEODORISERS & ODOUR NEUTRALISERS
Once the cleaning job is complete, the area should also smell clean and fresh. It is highly desirable to keep it smelling clean and fresh for longer, providing a pleasant place to visit. For example waste disposal and drain smells can quickly drift into areas where patrons are eating or relaxing. Gymnasiums can quickly become smelly and carpets and fabric can hold odours.

WHAT IS G.O.E AND WHY IS IT SO GOOD?
G.O.E. is a unique blend of naturally occurring enzymes, polysaccharides (natural sugars) electrolytes, combined with natural citrus extracts and coconut surfactants. This composition is at the forefront of modern biotechnology, an area in which Australia's position is foremost.
G.O.E's action is a very simple one. Immediately it is released into waste organic matter, it starts breaking down large chunks into a smaller more acceptable form (predigestion) thus allowing the natural bacteria in the system to reactivate and degrade it rapidly and completely. The result is odour free, cleaner waste with fewer complaints from Councils and your neighbours.
There are many words that can be used to describe this action on waste. Some call it waste augmentation, digestion, catalysis, bio waste reduction. The simple description is that it is a natural way of breaking down oils, fats as well as food proteins to provide a clearer and cleaner waste stream. Whatever the description, you will find it amazing and a great cost saver for your business.

Cleaning Equipment that does not use Chemicals
A major challenge is to effectively clean using a machine without using chemicals. Water-only cleaning can be very effective in applications that do not have oil residues or deeply ingrained/ infused stains. After all, most dirt is easily dislodged and swept or scrubbed away using mops, brushes and vacuums. Call us to discuss your challenge and our environmantally safe solution.
However, soiling from chemical residues and stains, foods or body fats, are often hard to release. Machines that can be considered use technology to release the dirt through options like high pressure washing, steam, orbital or cylindrical scrubbing, deionisation, electrostatic attraction.
Rapid Clean offers equipment that uses no chemicals like:
High pressure washing - from Gerni, Kerrick, Makinex and Aussie Pumps
Steam - from Matrix
Orbital scrubbing - from Nilfisk and Conquest
Cylindrical scrubbing - from Hako and Nilfisk
Deionisation - in window cleaning, from Unger and Gardiner water fed pole systems
Electrostatic attraction - from Oates brooms
Nilfisk orbital scrubbing: Nilfisk Adfinity Orbital Cleaning water only
Makinex rotary/wand high pressure: Makinex DPW-4000 demonstration
Unger deionised water window cleaning: Unger Deionised water window cleaning solution
Where using chemicals with the equipment is necessary, we can recommend chemicals that are biodegradable, offering sustainably responsible cleaning options.
