What Are Bio-Enzyme Cleaning Products and How do they Work?

Bio enzyme cleaner Urban plants Bio enzyme cleaners are cleaning products that use non-pathogenic, “good” harmless bacteria to digest wastes, soils, stains and malodors. The bacteria do this by producing chemicals called enzymes that break down certain molecules (wastes/soils) into tiny pieces. These smaller pieces of food feed bacteria. The bacteria consume these soils and break them down into two basic compounds: water and carbon dioxide. The bacteria grow in number and continue to consume the waste until their food supply diminishes (the food waste is gone).
An example of how bio enzymes work can be found in the digestion process; human saliva contains enzymes that start the process of breaking down food as the first part of the digestion process.  By the time one swallows, those bio enzymes have already started breaking down food.
When a specific soil is known such as cooking oil, a cleaner can also be formulated with a specific enzyme known to break down oil. These types of kitchen degreasers can be as effective as more hazardous corrosive oil degreasers. They also can have a residual effect by continuing to break down oil after cleaning is completed.
