Cleaning Innovations Company Demonstrates How Cost-Savings and Sustainability Go Hand-in-Hand

Sep 21, 2022 1:00 PM ET

Tersano is a Canadian-based, privately held company that manufactures sustainable cleaning technologies. Through their innovative products and solution, they make cleaning safer for people and the planet, while helping businesses significantly reduce costs, time, and labor every step of the way.

Tersano manufactures devices that convert ordinary tap water into an all-in-one cleaner, sanitizer, and deodorizer on-site and on demand. The best part? Tersano’s solution contains no harsh chemicals. Instead, it harnesses the natural oxidizing power of ozone infused in water to eliminate 99.999% of germs, including those responsible for the novel coronavirus disease.

The Need for Innovation

Having a clean space is more than a function of aesthetics – it prevents the spread of germs and keeps building occupants healthy. However, cleaning with harsh chemicals can also be harmful to human health and the environment.

For humans, excessive or unsafe exposure to traditional cleaning products can irritate the eyes, skin, upper respiratory tract, and throat. In more severe cases, shortness of breath and poisoning can occur when these harsh solutions are ingested.

In addition, traditional cleaning products negatively impact the environment. As noted by Novelty Journals, the chemical contents of conventional cleaning products can act as an endocrine disruptor to wildlife, contribute to water and air pollution, and even bioaccumulate in plants and animals.

Moreover, traditional cleaning products require extensive training, prepping, shipping, handling, and processes that can reduce workplace efficiency and increase operational costs.

Thus, with the need for innovation looming, Tersano set out in 2001 to Change the Way the World Cleans.

SAO Bridges the Gap Between Sustainability and Profitability

In the early 2000’s, Founder and current CEO of Tersano Steve Hengsperger invented and patented Stabilized Aqueous Ozone (SAO®), a cleaning solution scientifically proven to kill 99.999% of germs without harsh chemicals.

SAO is certified and accredited by world-leading sustainability changemakers like Green Seal and EcoVadis. Moreover, SAO is trusted and used worldwide every day – even benchmark brands like Google, Nestle, and Ford Motor Company have adopted the solution. As more and more brands and names convert to SAO, the need for harsh chemicals becomes increasingly obsolete.

Outside of sustainability, Tersano’s world-renowned SAO solution has many benefits: improved safety for staff and guests, reduced labour costs, cleaner environments, simplicity, and more. However, one of the most significant benefits for businesses is the cost savings. Through on-site generation, reduced health and safety risks, less resource consumption, and decreased chemical usage, SAO bridges the gap between sustainability and profitability.

Shorter Supply Chain, Less Costs

SAO is a unique solution in that it reverts to water and oxygen after usage. SAO remains a certified sanitizer for up to 24 hours and a certified cleaner for up to 6 days before reverting naturally into the environment. Tersano does not ship the SAO solution in plastic bottles. Instead, their devices let businesses and consumers instantaneously convert ordinary tap water into SAO on-site and on-demand.

The cleaning industry recognizes this concept as on-site generation (OSG) and it is an effective method for reducing carbon emissions and plastic use. However, Tersano’s technologies and solution differ from conventional OSG technologies as the operator merely flips a switch on the device to make the conversion. There is no mixing, batching, or wasting, and it is all accomplished with only water, on-site, on-demand, and within seconds.

On-site generation isn’t only better for the planet – it’s better for profit. OSG, predilution, and on-demand dispensing significantly reduce time and labour. Meanwhile, eliminating the need for single-use spray bottles keeps plastics out of our planet’s landfills, helping businesses reduce their waste output.

Reduced Risks, Increased Profits

With a Safety Data Sheet (SDS) rating of 0-0-0, Tersano’s SAO solution poses no harm to the planet or human health. Safer cleaning for the environment and people also translates into cost savings: by eliminating the need for hazardous material training, businesses save time, labour, and resources.

Because SAO reverts to water and oxygen after use, it is completely safe to dispose of down the drain. SAO does not require being ‘chased’ with water down the drain, saving time and resources for staff while also protecting our waterways.

In addition, SAO is residue-free. Using SAO to clean floors also increases safety by reducing the risks of dangerous slip-and-fall accidents. For example, a Tersano hotel client who switched to SAO found a 70% reduction in the number of lawsuits from slip-and-fall related accidents on their site, which additionally translated into saved costs.

Less Resources, More Savings

When surfaces are cleaned with hazardous chemicals, rinsing the surface with water afterwards is often required. SAO eliminates this step.

As a no-rinse, residue-free solution, SAO helps businesses and consumers save water, time, and costs in one fell swoop. Reducing water usage not only serves the environment – it serves utility bills.

Tersano’s clients have reported saving thousands of liters of water a month which translated into reduced utility expenses. Meanwhile, they calculated additional labour savings from eliminating the added step of rinsing surfaces with water after cleaning.

As a no-rinse solution, SAO preserves one of the planet’s most vulnerable resources, thus bridging the gap between sustainability and cost savings once again.

Fewer Products, Maximized Profit

Tersano’s Stabilized Aqueous Ozone is an all-in-one, all-purpose, no-rinse solution. Unlike traditional cleaning chemicals and other on-site generation technologies, Tersano’s devices dispense just one solution that is safe, suitable, and effective for virtually all applications: surfaces, glass, floors, stainless steel, high-touch points, and even food-contact areas.

In fact, many of Tersano’s clients have reported replacing over 90% of their harsh cleaning chemicals with SAO, helping them significantly reduce time with fewer products to manage as well as costs on all the harsh chemicals they no longer must buy.

SAO: The Solution to Cost and Eco-Efficiency

Tersano’s innovative cleaning solution and technologies show no trade-off between sustainability and cost-efficiency. Instead, Tersano demonstrates how cost savings and environmental servitude can go together, producing positive results for all facets of importance: people, planet, and profit.
