It is normal to question the long-term safety of any product that is effective and uses new or ‘breakthrough’ technology. This type of question has become common, as our litigious society has taught us to question things that significantly outperform existing methods or products.
There is no known case of hydro-peroxides ever creating a health risk. Considering we have been exposed to hydro-peroxides in nature since the day man stepped on the planet, it is a reasonable assumption that hydro-peroxides do not constitute a health risk. Over the past 20 plus years more than 4 million Advanced Oxidation products have been used successfully used worldwide without a safety problem.
The breakthrough in the advanced oxidation technologies is a group of oxidants known as Hydro-peroxides. Hydro-peroxides have been a common part of our environment for over 3.5 billion years. Hydro-peroxides are created in our atmosphere whenever three components are present: Oxygen molecules, water vapour and energy (electro magnetic).
Ionized-hydro-peroxides are very effective at destroying harmful microbials in the air and on surfaces. As oxidants, they do this by either destroying the microbe through a process known as cell lysing or by changing its molecular structure and rendering it harmless (which is the case with VOCs and odours). The amount of hydro-peroxides required to accomplish this task in a ventilated living space is well below the level that which is constantly in our outside air. The Advanced Oxidation Technology found in our REME and AOP product family has brought the oxidants found in the outside air into the ventilated space of your home.
