Cleaning composition containing an organic acid and a spore forming microbial composition

Described is an aqueous cleaning composition comprising:

an effective mineral dissolving amount of an organic acid of at least 5% by weight of the cleaning compositions;

an effective amount of a spore forming microbial composition;

an effective cleaning amount of a blend of wetting agents, the first wetting agent having a hydrophobic/lipophobic number (HLB) of about 10 and higher and a second wetting agent having an HLB number of about 5 or less;

an effective amount of a thickening agent and water.

The composition is also available in powder form without the thickening agent.

TECHNICAL FIELD

The present invention is concerned with a disinfecting and hard surface cleaning composition utilizing spore forming microbiological bacteria.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

In the general housekeeping environment in many facilities, there are numerous soiled surfaces.

In the general housekeeping environment of many facilities, there are numerous surfaces which are difficult for the custodial staff to adequately clean and maintain. The composition and/or function of these surfaces is such that they typically harbor organic soils and a diverse microbial flora that standard cleaning procedures do not effectively remove. Such surfaces include, but are not limited to, floors and walls in areas such as kitchens, restrooms, locker rooms, animal production facilities, kennels or veterinary clinics, loading docks, trash collection bins, and public transit operations.

As these surfaces accumulate soil and the natural microbial flora proliferates due to inadequate cleaning, the facility suffers two consequences. First, apparent cleanliness of the facility diminishes due to the soil load found in these materials. Secondly, this soil load can become a major source of nuisance odors due to the biological degradation of the organics by the resident microbial population.

Current technology does not offer an effective and efficient manner with which to solve this cleaning task. The principle method of cleaning employed relies on a light to medium duty cleaner and/or cleaner/disinfectant.

These types of products are capable of removing most surface soils and in the case of a disinfectant, destroying some of the resident bacterial population. They are not, however, effective against the soils that have penetrated the surface nor does their use of fragrances to mask odor offer any residual control of these nuisances. Because of this, either effective cleaning does not take place or a multi-step process is required to be successful. The best available cleaning technology involves application of the above type product(s) to clean the surface, followed by a rinse of clear water, and the use of a biologically active product to "deep clean" the surface and control odors. Biological products based on bacteria from the genus Bacillus "deep clean" and control odors through the biological degradation of the organics trapped in the substrate.

The objective of this invention is to offer a single-step process by which to accomplish cleaning of these surfaces. The invention is a combination of cleaning, disinfecting, and microbiological activity in one aqueous product.

The utilization of the microbial materials is to destroy offensive odors and their source that may be present on a surface. The purpose of the antimicrobial component is to kill various types of microorganisms found on the surface which might pose health concerns or contribute to nuisance odors. The microbials remain on the surface (after use) to continue the cleaning process through degradation of residual organics. A particularly important aspect of formulating antimicrobial products is that they remain stable for a long period of time. The microbiological materials likewise need to be stable in the presence of the other components of a cleaning composition such as the antimicrobial actives such as the quaternary ammonium compounds.

It is an object of the present invention to obtain an effective disinfectant and hard surface cleaning composition that is aqueous based.

It is an object of the present invention to obtain and utilize in combination a disinfectant, hard surface cleaning, and bacterial composition that is stable for a long period of time, but also allows the microbial material to remain active on the hard surface after the drying of the cleaning composition.

It is an object of the present invention to utilize an aqueous composition containing the genus Bacillus in the presence of disinfectants such as quaternary ammonium compounds.

It is an object of the present invention to perform general cleaning tasks in a more efficient manner whereby the multi-step cleaning process to clean, disinfect and control odors on hard surface substrates is decreased. The utilization of this invention will permit the saving of labor time and reduce chemical inventory.

It is an object of the present invention to utilize compositions that contain a bacterial content that provides better environmental fate attributes to both on site waste treatment systems and municipal treatment plants through biological augmentation of the indigenous bio-mass.

 

[0003] Spores, bacteria, and fungi play an important role in cleaning compositions, particularly those used for cleaning drains and grease traps. Present cleaning compositions including spores, bacteria, or fungi are typically provided as a "two-part" liquid product, with one container of the biological component and a second container of the chemical cleaners. Mixing the chemical cleaners and the biological components and then storing the mixture is not possible due to adverse effects of the chemicals on the spores, bacteria, or fungi. Many enzyme containing compositions have the same shortcomings.

[0004] Solid cleaning compositions can present another set of stability issues. Reactive or unstable materials can be kept apart from one another in a solid, which can increase stability. However, many solids include mixed ingredients and require stabilization of a microbe, spore, or enzyme in the composition. Certain dispensers for solid compositions spray liquid on the solid producing a damp solid and a liquid composition including intermediate or high concentration of the dissolved composition and also (optionally) solid matter. In conventional compositions, the microbe, spore, or enzyme can be unstable in the damp solid or liquid composition. Effective dispensing of a solid composition including a microbe, spore, or enzyme benefits from keeping the microbe, spore, or enzyme stable in the damp solid and liquid compositions produced, for example, in a dispenser.

[0005] There remains a need for solid compositions including both chemical cleaners and spores, bacteria, fungi, or enzyme.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

[0006] The present invention relates to a stable solid cleaning composition including a borate salt and spores (bacterial or fungal), vegetative bacteria, fungi, or enzyme, and to methods of using the composition. In an embodiment, the present solid composition includes borate salt and an effective cleaning amount of spore, bacteria, or fungi. The borate salt can include an alkanol amine borate. The present composition can include solidification agent, surfactant, or both.

[0007] The present method can include applying to a surface or object to be cleaned an aqueous mixture or solution including a composition according to the present invention. The composition applied can include a stabilized microbial composition or a cleaning composition. The surface or object to be cleaned can include one or more of a floor, a drain, or a floor drain. In an embodiment, the present method can include increasing the coefficient of friction of a surface. In an embodiment, the present invention can include cleaning grout. In an embodiment, the surface or grout is a floor or flooring.
