Benefits of Green Chemicals

The popularity of green chemicals has been increasing as more people become aware of harmful side effects of toxic chemicals. However, many people continue to use artificial detergents. It is still a common belief that green chemicals are not as powerful as their toxic counterparts are. Fortunately, technology has vastly improved these green cleaning chemicals. Modern green cleaning products are now as powerful as or even more powerful than synthetic detergents.

How Green Products Are Different

Green chemicals are derived from plants. Unlike synthetic detergents, they do not contain hazardous artificial ingredients. Toxic chemicals often do not biodegrade completely, leaving toxic residue on the surface and in the environment for months or even years after use. While these ingredients can be harmful to the surface, they are also harmful to those who encounter the surface and the environment these chemicals are exposed to.

On the other hand, the ingredients of genuine green chemicals, such as Daimer®’s Eco-Green® line of cleaners, biodegrade almost completely within the first 28 days. They are also safe for the surface, environment, and user.

Are They Effective?

At present, sophisticated technologies are utilized with Eco-Green® green products to ensure maximum cleaning power. One of the most prominent among them is Micro-Blasting® technology. Products based on this technology unleash nano-sized particles to the surface, which break the bond between dirt particles and the surface. This technology, found in Daimer®’s Eco-Green® line of cleaners, crystallizes the encapsulates making them easier to remove and prevents them from reattaching to the surface

Removing Graffiti the Eco-Friendly Way

Traditional methods of graffiti removal involve repainting the surface or using thinners to dissolve the paint. Both methods have their limitations. Repainting is costly and can look unattractive if the repainted area does not match the other parts of the wall. Thinners dissolve not only graffiti but also paint and any finishing layer on the surface. The quickest and most effective method of graffiti removal is using special graffiti-removal detergents and pressure washers from reputable suppliers such as Daimer®.

Graffiti removal detergents sold on the market usually contain a number of toxic and harmful chemicals. They emit noxious fumes and may cause chemical burns if not handled properly. In contrast, Daimer®’s Eco-Green® Graffiti Remover is made of natural ingredients. These food-grade, biodegradable components react chemically with paint, grease, marker, or pen. The molecular-level reaction helps remove the graffiti by lifting paint particles to the surface and keeping particles from reattaching to cleaned surfaces.

Green chemicals such as the Eco-Green® Graffiti Remover can be applied with a brush on to the surface. It can then be wiped off with a towel or hosed away along with the graffiti matter. For optimum cleaning efficiency, it is recommended to use green cleaners along with pressure washers. They can be added to the detergent chambers of these machines for the greatest graffiti removal power. Most contractors prefer to use such green chemicals while pressure washing walls, windows, and other graffiti-prone surfaces.

Many green chemicals are as effective as ordinary, toxic detergents. Daimer®’s unique Micro-Blasting® technology facilitates removal of the toughest graffiti stains. Besides being very effective at removing graffiti, these biodegradable products are nonreactive and carry no health or fire hazard.
