Many years ago, I worked on a project to develop a microbial based floor cleaner for use in maintaining kitchen/bar area floors. If you have ever worked in a commercial kitchen, you know about the slip hazards and difficulty in removing "stains" from the grout. Both problems are related to fatty acids/grease forming a water resistant film that most cleaners have problems with cleaning. In addition, grease residuals in floor drains can contribute to blockages and increased numbers of insect pests (drain flies, etc).
Well over the past year, I noticed a number of companies selling microbial based floor cleaners that were similar to what my team developed in the 1990s. In the intervening 20 years, microbial technologies have improved with greater understanding of biosurfactants and enzymes. So in 2015, my team at Aster Bio began to redesign the Floor Cleaner product to reflect R&D lab advances (seen in our industrial waste treatment products).
The new formulation was build on a Aster Bio's core strengths of microbes, enzymes, and biosurfactants. Here is what we came up with:
