THE NEED FOR CANNABIS CLEANING SOLUTIONS

It’s clear to anyone following the news that the cannabis industry is not only here to stay–it’s growing at an incredible rate and promises to become a much larger business in the near future as legislation and public perception catch up to its technology. One of the biggest challenges that cannabis growers face is the propagation of fungus and other microbes that can negatively impact the quality of cannabis at every stage of its production. With the relative youth of the industry and the uncertainties currently surrounding regulation, it can be very difficult for entrepreneurs in the field to find a cannabis or grow room cleaning product that is both effective and safe to use around their plants.

What is the best way to clean a grow room or lab? PCT offers products and companion equipment that are ideally suited to the conditions and needs of the cannabis industry.

Starting In the Grow Room

The success of any cannabis business begins in the grow room. Healthy plants free of infection are the starting point for all the products within the industry, so it is critical to ensure their quality and kill potential contaminating microbes from day one. Grow room sanitation, though, has not been studied thoroughly yet and there are relatively few easy answers for growers who are searching for the ideal products to use in their facilities for maximum effectiveness while also protecting the health of the plants themselves.

Some grow room pesticide products are effective at killing insects, bacteria, fungus, and other contaminants, but also pose danger to cannabis plants themselves. Many growers are also determined to avoid using chemicals that can harm the human workers in their facilities, and it can be very difficult to find a product that “checks all the boxes” and is independently certified to fulfill its claims.

Hypochlorous Acid for Grow Room Pesticide & Cannabis Disinfectant

The search for effective grow room disinfectant is a difficult one, but there is a fantastic answer that is fulfilling the needs of cannabis organizations around the country. PCT is proud to offer a surface disinfectant that utilizes the power of hypochlorous acid to achieve the goals of an ideal cannabis disinfectant without the risks of highly toxic chemicals. Our disinfectant product uses the power of hypochlorous acid, an incredible compound that occurs in nature as a highly effective defense against contaminants of many different types.

Hypochlorous acid has a number of qualities that make it a perfect choice for cannabis facilities. The free active chlorine in the compound and its neutral electrical charge allow it to quickly attack harmful bacteria, microbes, and fungus contaminants, destroying cells from the inside out. At the same time, its low levels of toxicity make it safe to use around both human workers and cannabis plants themselves.

Greatly Reduced Environmental Risks at Grow Room

One of the secondary yet major factors to consider when assessing the best way to sanitize grow room and laboratory environments, including the use of a grow room pesticide, is the risks to human health and safety. Many of the most common chemical products that people use to sanitize and disinfect surfaces unfortunately produce volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and quaternary ammonium compounds (quats) during application and even simply while being stored. These airborne compounds are colorless and odorless and thus very difficult to directly detect, but grow room cleaners have measurable negative effects on the human body.

Ongoing research continues to reveal the harmful impact of VOCs and quats on the airways and lungs of humans, particularly for those who are already suffering from chronic breathing issues. When facilities use PCT’s disinfectant products, however, they can avoid these concerns, as they produce no VOCs or quats at all. Workers need no special PPE while using our disinfectants or surfactants to protect them from airborne chemicals.

PCT Solutions for Cannabis Disinfectant

PCT is proud to be an important part of the solution for grow room sanitation. With a disinfectant product that has the ability to kill fungus, bacteria, and other microorganisms on hard, nonporous surfaces without posing health dangers to workers, PCT encourages cannabis entrepreneurs to consider a strategic partnership.

On-site generation of grow room disinfectant is an additional way that cannabis organizations can achieve their disinfecting objectives while also making their operations more streamlined and cost-efficient. PCT’s on-site generation equipment eliminates the product reordering process, supply chain dependence, and a large amount of waste material that must be disposed of. Instead, growers can generate disinfectant on demand, using their own containers and spray equipment rather than storing product in plastic containers and being sure to keep enough in stock. The equipment is convenient to store and easy to move to different facilities as needed.

Grow Room Disinfecting for Pesticides

When choosing a grow room cleaner, sanitizer, or disinfectant, it’s always best if you can find a single product that you can use for a wide range of different applications within your operation. Having multiple cleaning and disinfecting solutions for specific tasks is not only confusing, but can also create serious health hazards if certain chemicals are accidentally combined. PCT’s grow room disinfectant for pesticides is incredibly versatile and suitable for use throughout a grow room and other cannabis production environments.

Cleaning a grow tent can be tricky, but it’s an absolute must if your plants are going to be healthy and free from fungus, mildew, and other contaminants. The humid, warm environment of this specialized environment is great for your plants, but it also creates an ideal situation for the propagation of harmful infestations. A grow tent cleaner that is easy to use, easy to store, and doesn’t present any human health risks in the form of airborne VOCs is a powerful asset for any cannabis operation.

Choose a Grow Tent Cleaner Carefully

The important factors in selecting a grow tent cleaner are similar to those throughout the cannabis industry. You need a product that can quickly and effectively disinfect an environment, killing the microorganisms that threaten the quality of your final product. However, it is counterproductive to use a product that also harms the plants themselves or itself introduces contaminants in the form of toxic chemicals.

For disinfecting and cleaning a grow tent, you should insist on products that are safe for your plants, safe for your workers, and highly efficacious in eradicating pathogens. The anolyte solution from PCT checks all these boxes, targeting harmful microbes through the power of hypochlorous acid. This compound occurs naturally in the human body in its defense against infection, and when produced through water electrolysis, it does everything you need it to do to protect your plants from infestations.
