Our Concern for the Environment

A-TAC Cleaning is aware of the how much harsh chemicals harm the environment and so the company endeavours to use eco-friendly chemicals for cleaning and disinfecting purposes where possible.

A-TAC Cleaning uses a number of eco friendly cleaning fluids for carpet and fabric cleaning that will eliminate dust mites for up to 14 Months! Dust mites can be a big problem for Asthma and allergy sufferers. In fact, they have been cited as one of the major triggers of asthmatic and allergic reactions - another reason why so many clients are still replacing their carpets with laminate flooring.

We use cleaners that diluted properly are totally non-toxic and safe for children and pets - even if it were accidentally picked up off the carpets and ingested. Independent testing shows a dramatic reduction of asthma and other allergy's when used as an allergy control programme. This is great news for asthma and allergy sufferers, or in fact anyone who's worried about the possible medical effects of the common house dust mite. But that's not all! Our cleaners are also an effective stain protectant. You get all the benefits of a fluorochemical-based protector, with the added allergy control benefits that result.

A-TAC Cleaning uses the latest, safest, & strongest antimicrobial agent available for disinfection. Formula 429 is robably one of the most accomplished Anti-Microbial and Anti-Viral treatments available. It is safe enough to use in kitchens & yet strong enough for hospital theatres. It has a residual effect that continues to kill at the microbial level for days, weeks afterwards.

Formula 429 can safely be used in doctor's surgeries, school, offices, shops restaurants, residential homes, hospitals, farms. With a kill log of 6 (99.999999%) it disinfects and help to prevent the further spread of Swine Flu, C-diff, E-coil, MRSA, TB and many other pathogens. It is a recent 2010 winner of the Smart Solutions HCAI (Health Care Associated Infections) for infection control.

Formula 429 is increasingly recognised as the most effective way to safely treat blood, body fluid and other contamination as a de-odouriser and anti-microbial on carpets, fabrics and hard surfaces. This remarkable product safely achieves the tough objectives associated with the battle against harmful and even dangerous bacteria whilst satisfying the stringent biocidal legislation being implemented in the near future. That is why at A-TAC Cleaning, we use it.
