Evershade utilizes Electrolyzed Water to clean, disinfect and sanitize customers’ homes and commercial locations ecologically. The treated water is available to use throughout the home or business to clean and sanitize. Electrolyzed Water is safe enough to drink but tough enough to provide thorough sanitizing properties without harming the environment.

Sodium Hydroxide and Hypochlorous Acid

In the electrolyzing process, sodium hydroxide and hypochlorous acid are produced. Both sodium hydroxide and hypochlorous acid are efficient disinfecting agents. The process decreases water’s pH, creating more acidity within a solution that’s still water. This acidic form of Electrolyzed Water is so safe it can be used on food-preparation surfaces and even on the food itself! Electrolyzed Water can be used to clean fruits and vegetables.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Electrolyzed Water?

EOW or EO, also known as electrolyzed oxidizing water, electro-activated water or electro-chemically activated water solution is produced by the electrolysis of ordinary tap water containing dissolved sodium chloride. The electrolysis of such salt solutions yielding a solution of sodium hypochlorite NaOCl which is the major component of ordinary household laundry bleach.

How does it work?

Both sodium hydroxide and hypochlorous acid are efficient disinfecting and sanitizing agents; the effectiveness of EOW is based on the increase at low pH creating an acidic form of EOW that functions as environmentally safe cleaning solution.

Why should I use Evershade?

Evershade owns our own equipment producing a reliable supply of EOW. We have a 12 year record of providing quality exterior cleaning solutions. We now offer EOW as a basic service to our commercial customers.

Where do you get Electrolyzed Water?

Evershade is a local manufacture of EOW, producing a potent and reliable supply of EOW upon request, guaranteeing that our EOW always maintains it’s potency.

How do I know it is working?

The high oxidation of the water first damages bacteria cell walls, allowing infiltration by water. The microbe reaches capacity, causing an osmotic, or hydration, overload. The acidic fluid and water floods the cell faster than the cell can expel it, literally causing the cell to burst.

Why should I replace my current cleaners?

Standard toxic chemicals can create strains of pathogens that become resistant over time, because the cell can expel or neutralize the chemical before it can kill it, thereby causing the overall efficacy of chemical cleaners and disinfectants to be significantly reduced. (See Replaces List)

Is Electrolyzed Water (EOW) safe?

The stabilized electrolyzed water is non-toxic, can be used in multiple applications due to its various inherent sanitizing characteristics. (Refer to Safety and Efficacy Table)

Where can EOW be used?

EOW can be used to wash food, sanitize equipment and clean counters and sinks. EOW is a environmentally safe disinfectant and sanitizer. (See Uses and Applications List)

What are the key ingredients in EOW?

The key components are water, salt and an electrical charge producing: Hypochlorous Acid (.0088%), Hydrochloric Acid (.0096%), Dissolved Chorine. (.0001%) and Inert Ingredients (99.9815%)
