Thyme-Based Disinfectants

ThymeWe’re concerned about our family’s environment as much as you are with your family’s. For years, the mold remediation industry relied on bleach or other harsh, hydrogen peroxide based chemicals to remove mold and disinfect contaminated areas. Put another way: our “cure” was almost as bad as the disease.

Fortunately, several leading disinfectant manufacturers have looked to Nature for an answer. This back to basics approach has produced Benefect®, the disinfectant we turn to most. Benefect® is a thyme-based product. From Benefect’s site:

In nature, plants produce germ-killing ‘essential oils’ to protect themselves from invading microbes, similar to how our bodies produce antibodies for our protection.  Benefect® is a revolutionary blend of these antimicrobial extracts, particularly from the herb Thyme, and achieves remarkable efficacy …without using any traditional synthetic chemicals.

To put it simply, Benefect is a ‘plant immune system’ in a bottle.

We’ve used Benefect products for years, both on job-sites and in our own homes. We trust it. But don’t take our word for it: you’ve got the right (and the responsibility) to know what types of chemicals and solutions are brought into your home or office. We’ve added links below to help inform you. Note: some links take you directly to a PDF download (these downloads are 100% safe and may take up to a minute to download).
