Are you in danger of Chlorine Gas?

Are you putting yourself and your team in danger? Chlorine Gas is scarily easy to create.

There is a reason why the powers that be have banned bleach on your site. It’s not bureaucracy or over zealous management. It’s because it’s potentially really dangerous.

Why and How?

Bleach itself won’t give off any harmful gases, but when mixed with hydrochloric acid, the infamous ‘mustard gas’ is formed.

I hear of many circumstances where bleach is used to ‘deep clean’ a washroom or changing room including toilets. All it takes is a toilet with bleach in it to be cleaned with some toilet cleaner and boom! A chlorine gas cloud is produced. Que fire brigade, A&E and mass evacuation.

Remember; Bleach + Toilet Cleaner = Chlorine Gas. Want to minimise the risk? Don’t buy it.

As you can see, it's so easy to create this lethal gas in a housekeeping environment

‘But it’s good at cleaning!’ I hear you say

Laboratories in chemical factories such as Selden Research don’t spend millions on developing advanced cleaning chemicals only for people like me to advise my customers to just chuck bleach on the floor.

Bleach kills bugs. Great. We have a warehouse full of chemicals that will kill bugs AND clean (removing soil, preventing lime scale and sanitising the surfaces).

‘It smells clean’  

No, it smells like my primary school from the mid 80’s. We’re in 2013 and technical chemicals are now available to help keep your organisation cleaner, more easily.

‘Like what?’
