Agar's Green Products
Looking for a range of high-performance green cleaning products that reduce environmental impact without compromising results? Agar has formulated a range of environmentally preferred cleaning products that are both gentle on cleaners and the environment while still maintaining excellent cleaning power.
Several products in Agar’s Green Cleaning Range have been independently certified through Good Environmental Choice Australia (GECA), the “gold class” of Australian ecolabelling programs. GECA’s label provides confidence for buyers, confused by the host of greenwashing marketing materials, to make trusted, environmentally sustainable choices.
As cleaning is a labour-intensive activity, the green cleaning products are formulated using the most effective ingredients, allowing cleaning tasks to be completed in less time, saving labour hours and energy use. Agar’s green cleaning range is also highly concentrated, reducing packaging waste and the deliveries required, ultimately saving our customers money.
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. Citrus Resource products are a great natural alternative for all surface cleaning and dishwashing. The orange peel extracts are strong on greasy soils, yet the vegetable-based ingredients are mild on the skin.
Citrus Resource products are unique and innovative and offer a total solution for washroom and toilet cleaning care. Fiercely effective, yet gentle action removes lime, hard water scale, mould, rust and waste products from surfaces, helping to minimise the risk of bacteria transfer and improve hygiene levels in bathrooms. This natural alternative is ideal for schools, hospitals, hotels and resorts. It is also ideal for domestic applications where the demand for products that help sustain the environment is increasing.
DEGREASERS & SPOTTERS
Citrus Resources natural solvents are an exciting new alternative to strong petroleum, chlorinated or glycol ether solvents commonly used for heavy-duty cleaning and degreasing.
They are even strong enough for use on machinery, and to remove graffiti from solvent-resistant hard surfaces, and for chewing gum removal from carpets. Yet they remain gentle on the fibres and surfaces.
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 an 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, and biowaste 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.
Rapid Clean branded hand towels and toilet paper are sourced from sustainably managed forests.
Our environmental approach can be broken down into three key sections that takes us from raw materials to use of the product by the public:
- Raw material certification
- Environmental management system ISO 14001
- Innovative Hygiene Solutions
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 environmentally friendly cleaning products in Australia.
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 dirt through options like high-pressure washing, steam, orbital or cylindrical scrubbing, deionisation, and 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
Where using chemicals with the equipment is necessary, we can recommend chemicals that are biodegradable, offering sustainably responsible cleaning options.
