VLOG: Basic Bio-Enzymatics 101 PART 1


Today we will be talking about the products in our Bio-Enzymatic line, and how they can be a perfect solution for your specific application. These products all rely on the power and efficiency of several bacillus bacterial species. These bacterial species produce enzymes that specifically target organic material in stains and malodors such as fats, proteins, and starches. Several of these products also contain or proprietary odor counteractant, which goes beyond superficially masking the odor. It chemical neutralizes the structures of the malodor itself, therefore eliminating the odor at the source. The first product is our Bio-Enzymatic Urine Digester. This product is a great solution for hard surfaces, restroom care, trap and drain treatments, and carpet care applications. This product was tested by the Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) and received its seal of approval in categories such as soil removal efficacy and resoiling, therefore setting it above the competition. This also contains 4 bacillus bacterial species that target the organic materials in restroom environments such as proteins, urea, and starches, therefore eliminating the soil and the malodor. The next product is our BioBreak Multi-Purpose Digester. This is a great all-in-one solution for hard surface, carpet care, trap and drain, and restroom applications. This is the first product in its category to be Green Seal Certified, so it is environmentally friendly and readily bio-degradable. This product contains 7 bacillus bacterial species which target the specific organic materials in restrooms and carpet care applications. This product is also compatible with a wide variety of carpet care cleaning products on the market now and can be used in pH neutral carpet shampooers and extractors.

Today we will be talking about some of the other products in our Bio-Enzymatic line. Our Nilozyme™ Bio-Enzymatic Trap and Drain Treatment also contains seven bacillus bacterial species which target the fats, cellulose, and starches that commonly cause the blockages and build-up in our trap & drain and septic systems. Routine use of this product will also decrease the maintenance associated with trap & drain and septic systems. The next product is our ZymeCLING Multi-Purpose Bio-Enzymatic GEL. This product provides the same power and efficiency of the bacterial species, but at a thicker viscosity. This product relies on four bacillus bacterial species that produce enzymes, specifically targeting the organic material in trap & drain systems, septic systems, piping, soda machines… really anything that needs a certain degree of vertical cling. This can also be used for cleaning urinals and toilet bowls. This is a great all-in-one trap & drain and restroom care product.

Case Study: Today’s Grocery Store = Naturally Fresh Food, Naturally Fresh Air

Today’s Grocery Store = Naturally Fresh Food, Naturally Fresh Air 

Today’s successful grocery stores emphasize freshness – from organic, locally sourced products to environmentally preferred facility maintenance. Nllodor’s Single Scent Solution provides eco-friendly odor control results.

From floor to ceiling, from food to flowers, the trend in today’s successful grocery stores is a naturally appealing approach to freshness. For a grocery chain in the mid-Atlantic area, this approach is implemented by stocking thousands of organic products, locally sourced produce, caught-daily seafood, and freshly baked bread. The emphasis on freshness doesn’t end with its food inventory. The highly trained maintenance team is vital in keeping the stores refreshingly clean, bright, and inviting. That includes the restrooms, which are so appealing customers have been known to specifically rave about the cleanliness and elegance. What is rarely discussed, but certainly crucial in providing an inviting environment, is the fresh, clean scent in the restrooms. How do they achieve it? By intelligently integrating an odor control program with cleaning products that are not only effective, but eco-friendly and fragrance coordinated.

 

End of the Mixed Fruit Salad

Years ago, the grocery store chain maintenance team relied on a mixture of cleaning and odor control products without thinking about the different fragrances they were mixing. There was a cherry block in the urinal, a lemon cleaner for floors, and a metered aerosol shooting out a spice scent periodically. Mixed fruit is fine in the produce aisle, but not the ideal for restrooms. Not wanting to give up the basics of the existing restroom maintenance program, the company found NILodor’s Single Scent Solution easily solved the scattered scent problem without disrupting its basic program.

Seamless Integration with Existing Program
The NILodor Single Scent Solution is a package of cleaning and odor counteractant products with the same scent for fragrance consistency. Customers can choose from products with nine different scents: Original Scent, Red Clover Tea, Spring Mint, Lemon, Apple Spice, Cucumber-Melon, Soft Linen, Tango Mango, and Lavender.

NILodor’s suggested approach enabled the maintenance staff to keep products they were happy with while adding NILodor’s odor control elements for a single-scent restroom outcome. NILodor provided additional implemen­tation assistance by creating instruction sheets and had sales reps join the local distributor in conducting training sessions for each store.

Environmental Transition

This odor control program performed flawlessly for some time, but as environmental innovations evolved, the question was soon raised about new technologies for a more environmentally responsible program. Once the grocery chain learned there were more eco-friendly options to its existing program, a successful pilot program was quickly completed followed by a fast roll­out to all the locations. The improved program utilizes NILodor’s BioBREAK Multi-Purpose Digester, the first and only Green Seal certified (GS-53) bio-enzyme in the industry. Sprayed around urinals and commodes, BioBREAK uses select strains of natural bacteria, enzymes and NILodor’s proprietary odor counteractant to continually break-down and digest organic waste particles, thus removing the source of restroom malodors. Also available to the maintenance crew is Nilium Odor Neutralizer, a water­ soluble odor counteractant which can be added to the store’s favorite all-purpose cleaner for immediate odor elimination. It can also be added to disinfectants, insecticides, carpet shampoo, or any water soluble cleaning solution.

NILodor’s ULTRA Air passive air system with solid odor control refills replaced the metered aerosol system, The 30-day solid odor counteractants do not contain ozone-depleting ingredients, are voe friendly, do not use batteries, and are easily recyclable in any plastic recycle bin. They also fit into most other competitor cabinets. Urinal screens and blocks were replaced with NILodor’s thin, flexible ULTRA Air Deodorizing Screens which are recyclable, biodegradable, and contain 15 times more fragrance than traditional screens. These screens release billions of odor-eating bacteria to continually eliminate odors. Recyclable ULTRA Air Hangers periodically provide extra odor counteractant power when needed. The success of the environmental transition in the restrooms led to incorporating the NILodor odor control and cleaning technology in other areas of the stores, including the bottle return room and its dumpster compactor area. The next time you step into a grocery store known for its natural foods and fresh values, consider the other aspects of facility maintenance which provide an inviting environment, including how the company addresses its eco-friendly odor control. Then ask if they rely on NILodor.

How Nilodor Works

Nilodor, Inc. Odor Control and Carpet Care Products for the JanSan Industry and More

How Nilodor Works:

Nilodor Concentrate, the original, non-toxic odor neutralizer was introduced to the American Market in 1955. Since then, it has become famous for its immediate and long term effectiveness in malodor control. This document explains why the concentrate is so effective.

Malodor Control Methods:

There are 5 ways to combat malodors. Each has advantages and disadvantages. They are as follows:

  • VENTING: Venting a malodor simply involves moving the odor away through forced air ventilation. This technique is generally effective in the short and long term. However, it is not a method conducive to good neighbor relations or air quality and can require expensive equipment.
  • ANESTHETIZATION: This method involves using chemicals, such as formaldehyde, to deaden the sense of smell. It is a method which is immediately effective using low cost chemicals. It has no long-term benefits, however, as it does not treat the malodor. The chemicals employed are usually toxic.
  • SOURCE REMOVAL: This method involves eliminating the source of the odor. Obviously, it is the most effective long-term solution to a malodor. It is often, however, the least practical method. Sick room odors cannot be cured by disposing of the patient. Disinfectants and enzyme products are designed to eliminate bacteria or remove one specific odor source.
  • MASKING: Masking an odor involves overpowering a malodor with a higher level pleasant scent. The chemicals can be inexpensive and provide immediate effectiveness. Masks wear off in about 2 hours and require constant reapplication. Masking is not a popular method today as people become offended by the mask itself after a period of time.
  • NEUTRALIZATION: Neutralizing an odor involves lowering the malodor level to a less noticeable degree. The best known odor neutralizer is baking soda, which neutralizes refrigerator odors. Neutralization is an effective means of dealing with malodors on a longer term basis. Neutralizers can be easily applied in almost any situation as they can be non-toxic. They lack immediacy, however, as it takes time to absorb odors.
The NILODOR Way:

Nilodor Concentrate combines the best attributes of two methods to provide immediate and long-term malodor control. A single drop of the concentrate can handle almost any malodor in a 1,000 cubic foot area for 24 hours.

How it works:
  • TOP NOTE MASK: Unique masking agents provide immediate relief for up to 2 hours.
  • LEVEL 1 NEUTRALIZER: Begins neutralizing immediately. After about 2 hours, the neutralization has taken hold and continues to work through hour 6.
  • LEVEL 2 NEUTRALIZERS: Takes hold of malodor from hour 6 through hour 24.
  • IMMEDIATE AND LONG-TERM EFFECTIVENESS …that’s Nilodor Concentrate every product manufactured by Nilodor, Inc. contains this unique deodorizing concept.
Odor Neutralization:

How Do People Detect and Recognize Odors?

Human beings detect and recognize odors by a complex set of physiological and biochemical processes. Detection begins when odor molecules (like benzaldehyde from Maraschino cherries) enter the nose and attach to areas in the nose called “odor receptors”. By precisely fitting into the odor receptors, the odor molecules cause an electrical signal to reach the brain. The brain translates the electrical signal and allows us to recognize the particular odor. If the electrical signal is strong (i.e many odor molecules attached to many receptors), we sense a weak odor. We attach meaning to the odor (good or bad) simply based on experience.

What is Odor Masking and How Does it Work?

One approach to odor control has been odor masking. Masking an odor simply involves setting up a competition between a malodorous molecule and one with a pleasant odor. The two types of molecules compete for their particular odor receptors in the nose. By using an overwhelming amount of masking agent, the masking agent receptors in the nose become highly stimulated and the malodors are not able to compete to produce a detectable odor. This approach, substituting one odor for another, will only be effective against persistent malodors, if the masking agent remains present and in sufficient concentration, to continue winning the competition. However, when employing odor masking, the malodor is not modified and remains in the air.

Nilodor Products are Odor Neutralizers

In order to neutralize an odor, a product must do at least one of two things: remove a malodorous molecule from the air so that it never reaches nasal receptors or change the shape (molecular geometry) of a malodorous molecule so that it won’t fit properly into its nasal receptors. If the malodorous molecule is either removed totally or unable to fit in its receptors, no odor will be detected. Nilodor products contain a unique chemical formulation which not only removes malodors from the air but also chemically modifies many malodorous molecules so that they can’t fit into their nasal receptors. Thus, Nilodor products are true odor neutralizers. As an added bonus, the products also leave a mild, pleasant fragrance which accents any environment.

How Does Nilodor Neutralize Odors?

The chemical compounds present in Nilodor contain a variety of organic, functional groups (aldehydes, carboxylic acids, alcohols, etc.) which are capable of performing specific chemical and physical interactions with molecules containing common odor-causing functional groups like amines, mercaptans and others. For example, volatile, low molecular weight amines can be removed from the air by forming inert and nonvolatile quaternary ammonium salts with certain components of Nilodor, and mercaptans (sulfhydryl-containing) compounds can form thiohemiacetals which are basically odorless. These effects, in conjunction with hydrogen bond-based and chelation-based complex formation processes which alter odoriferous molecule shapes, combine to generate the powerful odor neutralizing effects of Nilodor products.
