Microbial based cleaners have specially selected microbe strains that will produce the specific enzymes needed to breakdown compounds so the microbe can digest them. Naturally occurring microbes are scientifically adapted to digest specific compounds such as fats, oils, greases, and petroleum.
The specialized microbe will secrete the proper enzyme to attack a specific type of organic matter and will digest the compound to form water and carbon dioxide. During the digestion process malodours are controlled. By controlling odours at a microscopic level the need for masking agents like perfume is eliminated.
