Why We Use Hydroxyl Generators-What are they?

Why We Use Hydroxyl Generators-What are they?

When cleaning up a specific area, you’d want all surfaces to be dealt with right? Unfortunately, with simple hand scrubbing techniques, achieving this may be extremely difficult if not impossible as some surfaces are too difficult to reach. Take an office printer for example, while its outer surface may be easy to wipe from any visible dirt, there can be plenty of mini harmful particles and bacteria hiding within its inner cracks and crevices. This is where a new airborne cleaning technique is required to remediate these issues. 

To deal with tough-to-reach surfaces and hard contaminants such as mould, viruses, or certain bacteria, AllAces employs the use of special naturally occurring particles called, “Hydroxyls.” What are hydroxyls you may be wondering? Well, often referred to as “Mother Nature’s Broom,” hydroxyl particles are microscopic particles that eliminate harmful bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens from the air. It naturally occurs when UV rays react with water in the air which makes hydroxyl radicals.  

These particles are employed through mechanical means by way of Odorox hydroxyl generators. These generators replicate the natural process by using water and UV rays to release hydroxyls all over a specific area. With an eco-friendly, FDA-approved design, Odorox hydroxyl generator features include eliminating bad odours, surface & airborne contaminants, decontaminating surfaces and purifying air quality. What’s more is that it allows for the hydroxyls to penetrate tough-to-reach surfaces such as fabrics, porous, and non-porous materials to destroy viruses, bacteria, mould, mildew and other odours.  

Originally used by Nasa to clean their space station of bad odours and diseases, hydroxyl generators prove to be a handy tool when completely remediating areas that have been affected by mould. It ensures that the mould spores are not only killed but are also fully destroyed so that they cannot spread anywhere else around your property. By converting ambient moisture in the air to atmospheric hydroxyl radicals, these generators can effectively rid any space which previously may have been deemed too hard to clean. 

By replicating the sun’s broad range of UV radiation, hydroxyl generators can help naturally clean indoor environments where airborne droplets could spread a variety of germs. That’s why they are currently being used in classrooms, locker rooms, nurse’s offices, and other places in a school where people need to be kept safe. Their practicality is unmatched as they can thoroughly clean an environment, making the air purified of harmful particles and viruses. Another major reason hydroxyl generators are ideal for an indoor setting is because of the ease with which they can be operated. Administrators and maintenance staff do not have to have an engineering degree to make sure a generator is doing its job. It is designed to simply be plugged in, turned on, and given time to do the work. 

The hydroxyls inactivate up to 99.9999 per cent of pathogenic airborne viruses and bacteria and simultaneously reduce the bio-load on surfaces. This makes them great for mould removal projects as they can remove mould from clothing, walls, and porous and non-porous surfaces. As mould spreads through microscopic spores, it can make its removal particularly challenging because you would not even realise all the new surfaces it has latched itself onto. Therefore, hydroxyls are effective because they can eliminate spores that can go unseen to the naked eye.
