How does probiotics-based cleaning work?

Were you raised with the belief that all bacteria are bad? They’re not! In fact, you would not be able to survive without them. The good bacteria (probiotics) that populate our gut are the best-known example.

Designed in nature, perfected by science, we use synbiotics, a patented, unique synergy of probiotics (good bacteria) and prebiotics (good sugars) as active ingredients in our cleaning products. They go to work in every nook and cranny and keep on going long after traditional cleaning products have given up.

When cleaning with probiotics, you use our friends the good bacteria by depositing a layer of them on the surface. The probiotics produce enzymes that break down dirt into tiny particles, both during and after cleaning, absorbing the particles and digesting them as food. Probiotics continue to function for days after cleaning, providing a long-lasting cleaning effect. The results: a microscopic deep clean and long-lasting absorption of odors.

Working with conventional chemical cleaning products and disinfectants appears to be cleaning surfaces well, but:

  • The more disinfectants we use, the more resistant bacteria we create. This is called the decontamination paradox
  • It is difficult to clean in scratches and remove the grimy film layer which is a source of unpleasant smells


    HeiQ Synbio Clean works with nature and not against it, resulting in:

    • A continuous cleaning effect, lasting for days after application, microscopically purifying down to the deepest pores
    • Introduces beneficial bacteria (probiotics) into the space and does not utilize harsh chemicals known to cause bacterial resistance
    • Stubborn, deep pollution can take a few weeks to clean; but once gone, can be kept clean with less effort

    NEWS: Probiotic cleaning as new technology in the Robert Koch Institute guidelines for hospital hygiene

    Robert Koch Institute has included probiotic surface cleaning in its new official recommendations for hospital hygiene and infection control, a major breakthrough for the HeiQ Synbio technology.
