Why should you use enzymes instead of chemicals?
Enzymes can be used to replace harsh conditions and harsh chemicals, thus saving energy and preventing pollution. They are also highly specific, which means fewer unwanted side-effects and by-products in the production process. Enzymes themselves are biodegradable, so they are readily absorbed back into nature.

This all-organic biodegradable cleaner penetrates and emulsifies all types of organic matter on all surfaces. It is an environmentally friendly alternative to harsh cleaning chemicals and is highly effective for cleaning all surfaces including tile, walls, floors, carpets, rugs and upholstery. This unique and highly effective product is specifically designed to clean and biodegrade organic stains such as blood, vomit, urine, waste, food and other such difficult stains.
Kleen Green™ attacks stains at first application then continues working to safely biodegrade the residual traces of these organic stains. Especially effective on hard-to-clean surfaces such as tile grouting, corners, cracks and crevices where germs colonize, plus carpets and furniture where removal of organic stains is difficult.
The unique odor control action includes the absorption of odor molecules on contact, and replacement of offensive odors with a pleasant, refreshing fragrance. Use diluted as a spray air freshener, or cleaning solution. Effective on smoke, cooking, waste and other undesirable odors.
Insects and Other Pests
Insects are made up of a high concentration of protein. When Kleen Green™ is introduced to an insect, the enzymes act and cause the insect to molt (shed its outer coating) prematurely. These enzymes are becoming widely accepted in the pest removal industry, because they leave no toxic residues and the effect on the insect exoskeleton is quick and safe.
Poison pesticides attack the nervous system of the insect, which is not always effective. University research has noted that some insects have developed a resistance to poison-based products!
See our Common Pests pages to find out more information about how to use Kleen Green™ to remove bugs and pests.

Things You Didn't Know About Lyme Disease
Lyme Disease is said to affect more people in the U.S. than HIV, AIDS and even breast cancer. Early symptoms range from flu-like pain and exhaustion, to localized paralysis and memory loss. A startling 40% of those who contract Lyme disease, however, will suffer long term complications too—such as infertility, debilitating joint pain, daily fatigue, even depression. If not detected and treated early, Lyme can lead to permanent neurological impairment, heart damage and, in rare cases, even death. Here’s more frightening things you might not know about Lyme disease:
Lyme-Carrying Ticks Can Be the Size of the Period At the End of This Sentence.
Ticks have four life stages: egg, larvae, nymph, and adult. Although not fully developed at the nymph stage, these immature ticks still spread Lyme disease. Worst yet, nymphs are essentially invisible. For perspective, the average nymph is smaller than the size of a grain of salt or pepper, smaller even than a pinhead (approximately 4/100 of an inch).
2017 Could Be the Worst Year For Lyme Disease We’ve Ever Seen
Reports that on average the experiences 330,000 new cases of Lyme disease each year—that’s 38 cases per hour. And those numbers are only getting worse. Since 1982, the number of reported cases has increased 25X (that’s 2500%!). With spring coming earlier than expected this year in most parts of the country, and with an unusually large increase in rodent populations, experts are predicting that 2017 will likely be the worst year for Lyme disease on record.
Less than 20% of Lyme Disease Sufferers Develop the Infamous Bull’s Eye Rash
The most well known Lyme disease symptom is the bull’s eye rash. In fact, most people use this symptom to tell whether they’ve contracted the disease or not. However, only about 20% of people with Lyme ever develop this rash.
Children Are Most At Risk
As scary as Lyme disease can be, the thought that children are at the highest risk of contracting the disease is worse. The CDC reports that those between the ages of 3-14 are the most likely to suffer from Lyme. The elderly are the second most vulnerable.
On Average, It Takes 2-3 Years To Properly Diagnose Lyme Disease
Lyme disease is often called ‘The Great Imitator’ because of how difficult it is to accurately identify. Its wide array of symptoms often leads to misdiagnosis. In fact, it’s not uncommon for Lyme sufferers to visit several doctors before a correct diagnosis is made.
Lyme Medications Can Cause Even More Pain Than the Disease
Although relatively uncommon, about 15% of patients experience an adverse side effect to Lyme antibiotics called the Jarisch-Herxheimer reaction. As the medication begins to eliminate Lyme bacteria, the disease responds by releasing inflammation-causing proteins. Flu-like symptoms—fever, aches, chills—and both acute and general pain often result. While only lasting a short time, this reaction can leave you bed ridden for days.
Lyme Can Spread From Mother To Baby During Birth
Not only can Lyme disease cause pregnancy complications such as infertility, it can also be passed onto children during birth. A frightening 20% of babies born to mothers suffering from Lyme will contract the disease. This method of contracting lyme can cause debilitating, even fatal, birth defects.
Lyme Disease Can Lead to Depression, Brain Fog, and Psychosis
While temporary memory loss and lowered cognitive function are common symptoms in those with lyme disease, long term symptoms can be much worse. Brain fog, life-threatening depression, and psychosis have all been linked to Lyme disease. These symptoms are known to last for as long as a decade.
Testing For Lyme Disease Is Often Unreliable
The Elisa test is perhaps the most administered test for Lyme disease. Unfortunately, reports indicate that this test results in approximately 35% false negatives. Other sources have shown that upwards of 70% of all blood tests for Lyme result in either false negatives or false positives.
