Uribug Biological Washroom Cleaner

The Uri-bug™ universal biological washroom cleaner utilises specific microbes and eco surfactants for cleaning and deodorising urinals and toilets.

Biological Washroom Cleaner

How does it work?

There is no doubt at some point you will have visited a washroom only to be greeted with the foul odour of urine or even flooded floors coming from blocked, overflowing urinals. This is certainly not a pleasant experience for anyone and can have costly repercussions.

Malodours and blockages are caused not only by the buildup of pathogenic bacteria (uric salts) within the pipework, they also come from surrounding surface areas, including floors and walls. Using chemical-based cleaning products like bleach and disinfectant shall only mask these smells and will not cure the underlying root cause. Without using the right product, over time these problems mean costly plumber call outs and can even potentially ruin a business’s reputation.

Uri-bug™ Universal Biological Washroom Cleaner has been specifically formulated to combat these problematic areas and is proven to eliminate odours and prevent long term scale build-up. The unique combination of biodegradable surfactants, menthol fragrance and specific microbial strains digest organic debris at the source to aid them to be flushed or wiped away easily preventing them from adhering to surfaces or pipes.

The superior bacteria within Uri-bug™ will find an area with suitable levels of oxygen where it will germinate and colonise to form a Biofilm. This complex structure, consisting of good bacteria colonies, attaches itself to the surface and lies in a dormant state. When contact is made, the good bacteria reactivates and attacks the organic matter, digesting and breaking it down to a soluble, flushable and wipeable form. Once its work has been done, it reforms back to its dormant state ready for the next attack.

Consistent and correct usage of Uri-bug will offer all-round protection long after the original attack.

The microbes secrete enzymes that break down:

  • Insoluble and unsightly uric scale, significantly reducing its build-up and potential to block pipes.
  • Organic compounds including ammonia, volatile fatty acids and proteinaceous waste, providing long-lasting odour control.
  • Triple action: cleans / deodorises / reduces scale build up

  • Viscous formulation to effectively clean and provide long last cling to toilet bowls and urinals

  • Product-specific microbes establish effective self-renewing biofilms deep inside inaccessible plumbing lines for long-lasting protection

  • The product microbes break down organic matter including ammonia, volatile fatty acids, proteins and uric acid, long after product application

  • Natural, safe and effective way to combat organic waste and odour problems

  • Keeps pipes and drains clear from buildup

  • Non-chemical friendly bacteria – kind to the environment

  • Safe on all washroom surfaces

  • Reduces CO2e by up to 85%

  • The Uri-bug™ system helps reduces water consumption

  • Local UK Production and supply chain reduces CO2e impact from transport

  • Technologies are renewable and sustainable, sourced from plant extracts, fermentation, microbes and manufacturing by-products reducing CO2e and environmental toxicity.

  • Post-Consumer Recycled bottles provide a circular life cycle reducing CO2e and removing physical plastic pollution.

  • Readily biodegradable (99% over <28 days).

  • 0% of manufacturing waste.

  • Helps improve business environmental sustainability

Uri-bug™ blocks contain colony-forming bacteria in their dormant state. Once activated by urine, they come out of dormancy and get to work. The bacteria will find an area with suitable levels of oxygen where it will germinate and colonise to form a Biofilm. This is a complex structure that attaches itself to the internal pipe surfaces consisting of colonies of good bacteria where it will flourish and outnumber the bad bacteria to establish competitive exclusion.

The bacteria in our blocks have been subjected to a comprehensive screening programme by our microbiologist to determine it is the best strain for the job.  As soon as the bacteria begin to multiply, it will secrete enzymes in order to digest the available food source in this case urinal blockages. Uri-bug™ bacteria produce Uricase enzymes, which are responsible for the breakdown of the uric salts making them water-soluble so that they can be washed away. The enzyme, Protease is also present and enables the bacteria to digest protein matters (organic substances).

The Superior bacteria we exploit within the urinal system is a living breeding life form and is highly sensitive to change in PH or oxygen levels, this can have a detrimental effect upon the structure of the organism, to alleviate this issue it is imperative the system is serviced on a regular basis. Hygienic Concepts Engineers will visit the site on a monthly schedule doing a full clear and replenishment of cartridge ensuring optimum breeding levels are sustained at all times.

Any form of disinfectant type chemicals or bleaches will also interfere with the molecular formation even killing it off completely, rendering the whole product ineffectual. We provide a bioactive liquid that complements and supports the Uri-bug system.  Full training is available as it is essential this product is used in place of other non-bio cleaners.
