Enzymes are nature’s own housekeepers, found in living organisms; a complex protein molecule present in every living cell. They serve as catalysts, bringing about chemical changes (organic or inorganic) and yet in themselves remain completely unaffected. Working at extremely high speeds, only a very small amount of enzyme can create a very big reaction.
Matter must eventually decompose into its simplest form. With the aid of enzymes, decomposing may be accelerated, converting soil matter to carbon dioxide and water which then evaporates. Enzymes only deal with dead organic and hydrocarbon waste and will not compromise any living matter, presenting us with the power to truly clean up behind us in a safe and most environmentally manner.
Microbial enzyme technology may be traced back to as early as 1896. However, recognition of enzymes being used as industrial catalysts came with the development and cultivation of penicillin after WWII.
Enzymes are very specific in nature. They will react only to what they are supposed to.
Different enzymes will digest different foods (soil matter) and therefore may be selected in the development of cleaning products with specific purpose in mind.
Though once perceived as fragile and limited by environment, today, enzymes present as robust catalysts. They may last long in low water environments and remain effective in a vast range of temperatures.
Benefits of Enzymes over traditional Chemicals
Unlike traditional chemical cleaning, which lends itself to adverse allergic reactions attributed to contaminants and chemical by-products, enzymes present favourably to the user and do not present risk of corrosion to the surfaces being cleaned. Whilst breaking down the soiling, enzymes may also rid odour problems, converting smelling sulphides into odourless and water soluble sulphates.
