3. Product, Services & FAQ
What does Origen Clean do?
Origen Clean offers probiotic cleaning solutions for companies that operate large indoor spaces. We work with many different industries to ensure the health and long-term prosperity of both clients and employees. Our probiotic spray comes in the form of a backpack containing our state-of-the-art probiotic spray with leasing and purchasing options. We are here to help guide your surface cleaning and disinfecting practices for every industry.
How does your probiotic cleaner work?
We offer probiotic cleaning solutions in the form of a backpack and sustainable probiotic solution. We provide these tools in the form of lease and purchasing options. We also provide cleaning guidance for our clients for their unique indoor space situations. The probiotic solution is stored within the backpack and then the backpack disperses the solution through a form of quick-action fogging. This method saves time and money for organizations with large indoor spaces as it can be done faster than traditional disinfectant sprays.
The probiotic "good bacteria" then continues to work in the background for up to 5 days without the user having to spray again. The important thing to note is that probiotic cleaners are meant to be used in conjunction with traditional cleaners as an extra layer of continuous protection (rather than completely replacing traditional cleaners).
Are probiotic cleaners safe?
Yes! Probiotic cleaners are completely safe. You can use as much of it as you would like as it consists of good bacteria that humans were meant to be around. Our bodies invite good bacteria which in turn helps fight off bad bacteria from our bodies. Without good bacteria, our bodies are not able to fight off infections and viruses when they come into our environment. By removing dangerous biofilm and surface contamination issues within the built environment, our probiotic products deploy a proactive barrier of defense against microscopic threats to human health and well-being.
