The Alternative? – Bleach
Bleach was an older method used to disinfect surfaces. To give it the benefit of the doubt, bleach was effective at removing bacteria and mold for the time. The downside to bleach would be the fact that it can ruin fabrics, rugs, carpets and the limited effectiveness. Bleach also emits toxic fumes and can be dangerous if not fatal when mixed with other chemicals. Microban™ was developed to act like a bleach without the harmful added effects. Unlike bleach, Microban™ will not damage or discolor fabrics while providing the deep down cleaning you expect.
