Protexus Antimicrobial System

Public awareness of the need for effective prevention against biological hazards like mold, bacteria and allergens is at an all-time high. Numerous scientific studies have linked toxic mold to neurological conditions like autism and people are on high alert to ensure the safety of their patients, workers, students and guests. A public outbreak and illness can wreak havoc on a brand and cause millions of dollars in liabilities and lawsuits. While a number of products make claims to kill these pathogens, no other system currently exists that can eliminate mold and bacteria on contact while also providing residual, long-lasting protection after application.

The Protexus Antimicrobial System is a two-part cleaning protocol that eliminates mold growth, bacteria and odors with the most effective hospital-grade disinfectant on the market and a one-of-a-kind surface coating that delivers long-lasting protection from any of these problems appearing again. A cleaning protocol using the Protexus System doesn’t just create a sanitary environment – it keeps it that way – giving people peace of mind that their spaces are clean and safe. The Protexus System also delivers complete elimination of biological odors from both indoor and outdoor spaces, rendering dwellings that were once ruined by odor, safe and usable once again.

The Protexus System includes two products for the cleaning protocol.


Bleach Does Not Kill Mold!

Bleach may remove the appearance and staining of mold – but it does not kill the spores or root system, which is why mold often returns. Chlorine bleach-based disinfectants used to kill bacteria involve strong chemicals and produce trihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acids (HAAS) that have been linked to cancer. While safer alternatives to bleach have existed for years, they fail to deliver the safety without reducing effectiveness.

The EarthSafe Protexus Cleaner & Disinfectant is EPA registered and recognized by hospitals and universities as one of the safest and most effective disinfectants available on the market today. It is nontoxic, green, contains no VOCs and kills 99.99% of mold, mildew, bacteria and viruses it comes in contact with. It is safe enough to use on a child’s toy, yet powerful enough to kill dangerous viruses like Ebola. It can be used as a standalone disinfectant and sanitizer or as part of the (two-part) Protexus System to ensure long-lasting inhibition and protection of the treated surface. This is the new standard for safe disinfecting, sanitizing and odor control.


Safe, Long-Lasting Microbial Protection

Products claiming to deliver residual and long-lasting protection against mold, bacteria and odors either do so with limited use and value (such as a few days of lasting efficacy) or come with the caveats that they can’t be exposed to UV light or water as they will wash off. Couple that with the fact that the active ingredients need to be made available on the surface in order to be effective and you now have chemicals that leech off of whatever surfaces they’re applied on. This is not only dangerous for anyone who comes into contact with them but also means the product no longer works once the chemicals are worn off.

EarthSafe Protexus Matrix is the only system available on the market to use a proprietary moisture-activated matrix that delivers residual long-lasting protection of treated surfaces for months at a time. The unique approach uses ambient humidity and microscopic pores on the treated surface to keep powerful active ingredients captive and available while ensuring they won’t leach or abrade on contact. The “mesh-like” matrix allows mold, bacteria, mildew, allergens, even algae to come in contact with the active ingredients but at the same time keeps the active ingredients from escaping. This gives you safe, highly effective and long-lasting protection and peace of mind that is simply unmatched by anything currently available today.

The Protexus Matrix uses a proprietary chemistry that leverages ambient room humidity to deliver long-lasting inhibition of mold, mildew, bacteria and odors. The invisible matrix technology forms a protective barrier that allows active ingredients to remain captive and available on any treated surface, while preventing them from leeching on contact. Microbes can freely enter the matrix, but the Protexus ingredients remain contained for reliable protection that lasts.
