Enzyme cleaning products are commonly known as enzyme digestants! Even though they are not expensive, they improve overall cleaning operations and are user-friendly.
Enzyme digesters or products are seen as a possible replacement for other types of formulations in certain cleaning situations by many janitorial and cleaning industries. Enzyme digesters work by digesting protein matter in waste.
Here are some Enzyme digestants or Cleaning products that have enzymes in them;
• Endz-It Multi Enzyme Digestant and Spotter,
• Enzibrite Floor Cleaner,
• RMC DfE BLOC Odor Control/Cleaner,
• Namco Liquid Alive Foam Stain Remover and Deodorizer
• Betco Cleaner,
• F/Floor/Drain/Spots, Fastdraw,2 L, Milky White
• Majestic I-74 Triple Action Multi-Enzyme Spotter and Deodorizer.
Enzymes in cleaning products are used ineffectively to control odors caused by a buildup of organic soils in restrooms, rugs, plumbing, carpets, and tiled floors.

What are Enzymes?
Enzymes are proteins created by living cells that exist in organisms such as plants, animals, and bacteria and are used to absorb waste. When augmented with organic material like dirt, grease, and oil, they instantly go to work crushing down the organic material within these materials.
The four basic enzymatic systems are;
Lipase – they break down fats and greases;
Protease – breaks down proteins
Cellulase – breaks down cellulose such as wood, cotton, and paper
Amylase – breaks down carbohydrates and starches.
Dirt has coatings of fine film comprised of grease, oils, fats, bacteria, germs, dust mites, non-organic material, and organic microorganisms. These films are coupled to each other and the surface by amino and fatty acids (organic acids composed of proteins, fats, or fatty oils).
Most cleaning products only remove the top coating of dirt, leaving the lower coatings behind which accumulate again and collect bacteria.
How Enzymes Work In Cleaning Products
When activated, enzymes attack or absorb the amino and fatty acids that bond the films of dirt together. They break the dirt down in a way that it can be completely removed from the surface.
Researchers said that in the activation process; when the substrate and enzymes come in contact with each other, the enzymes physically curl and twist—in what is known as a “conformational change.” And that it is this physical change that initiates the contact between the enzyme and substrate which is essential to “catalyze” the reaction.
Enzymes dissolve and break down protein and organic matter, abating odors caused by staining agents such as urine, feces, vomit, pet odors, spoiled foods, and mildew.
Enzymes are emanated from living organisms and are innocuous to humans, animals, marine life, and general ecology. They are non-toxic, non-irritating, non-gaseous, non-flammable, non-pathogenic, and generally safe to use.
There are thousands of different enzymes, and each has distinctive and individual features.
A powerful enzymatic cleaning product must contain enough different classes and types of enzymes to assure proper catalytic reaction.
What Can I Clean With A Cleaning Product That Has Enzyme?
Always read the label on the cleaning product and follow the instructions for the correct direction.
Pour the enzyme-based cleaning products into clogged drains, starting with lower-level floor drains. If you start with the upper levels drains, the dislodged and dissolved protein will further plug lower-level plumbing.
It is best to use drain openers at night or over a weekend to give the enzyme several hours to do its job.
Enzymes are not fast-acting like acid-type drain openers and they require a few hours to work properly.
Enzymes work well for bloodstain subtraction and they are very effective in reducing or even eliminating odors caused by urine, vomit, and other organic-related odors.
When odors are in carpet backing, use a carpet syringe and inject 1 ounce of undiluted enzymes through the backing onto the sub-floor. Apply more injections for a larger area.
Enzymes can be used on all other water-safe fabrics that contain odor or stains caused by the same organic matter that also stains carpeting.
When mopping, mix enzymes with warm water to the correct dilution ratio and mop floors. Do not rinse floors, but air dry, allowing the enzymes time to react with bacterial matter.
Remember not to use an enzyme digester at the same time that a disinfectant cleaner as the residue of the disinfectant will kill the live organisms of the enzymes.
You can also spray enzymes on and around urinals and other odor-producing fixtures. Periodic applications of enzymes will eradicate the source of the odor. When spraying, use a stream, not a mist.
Enzymes applied as a mist can easily be inhaled into the lungs. Enzymes are living organisms and could cause medical problems if inhaled.
