How effective is the Jani-King Probiotic Cleaning system when used in chlorinated water?

At Jani-King, we are dedicated to our commitment to environmental responsibility by utilising eco-friendly probiotic products to clean our clients' workplaces. These innovative products are created using advanced chemical technology and combined with specific bacillus cultures. These cultures have the remarkable ability to penetrate deep into surfaces, effectively breaking down stubborn dirt, grime, and odours, providing long-lasting cleaning results without causing harm to the environment.

Unlike harsh chemical cleaners that eliminate all bacteria on surfaces, our probiotic cleaning products work differently. They actually safeguard surfaces by introducing beneficial bacteria that offer enduring cleaning and odour control.

With the introduction of chlorine into drinking water, it becomes essential to ensure its safety by combatting waterborne bacterial contaminants such as E.coli and legionaries. Chlorine is typically present in drinking water at levels ranging from 0.3 mg/l (0.30ppm) to 0.6 mg/l (0.6ppm).

Considering the presence of chlorine in our drinking water, it's natural to question the effectiveness of probiotic cleaners. To address this concern, a study was conducted to assess the efficacy of our probiotic cleaners in the presence of chlorine. Growth was measured indirectly using an oxygen uptake assay method. In this method, a specific substrate, starch, was included as the sole carbon source, and oxygen uptake served as an indicator of microbial activity. If the Bacillus consortia were capable of secreting the correct enzymes to break down the polymer and metabolize the product, the oxygen levels would decrease.

The study revealed that the probiotic Bacillus strains exhibited metabolic action against starch even in the presence of chlorine levels as high as 9.9 mg/l (10ppm) and 19.97mg/l (20ppm). In comparison to the control growth curve with no chlorine present, the probiotic Bacillus strains continued to grow and metabolize in the presence of up to 19.97mg/l (20ppm) chlorine.

This finding indicates that the chlorine levels in our drinking water are significantly lower than the threshold that would impact the probiotic spores contained in our eco-friendly probiotic cleaners. The research demonstrated growth on starch in the presence of chlorine at levels up to 19.98mgl/l (20ppm).

Therefore, when our team of franchisees dilutes the product in chlorinated tap water, our probiotic strain Bacillus remains active and effective in providing exceptional cleaning results.
