EarthSafe Chemical Alternatives, known for developing the EvaClean Infection Prevention Solution which firefighters use to mitigate pathogens in their fire stations and emergency vehicles, has launched a safer, more sustainable line of industrial-strength products to address hazardous spills and inhibit harmful moulds. 

FlashDry is EarthSafe’s new absorbent solution for hazardous and non-hazardous leaks and spills made from 100% organic coir, a coconut fiber that is non-carcinogenic and safe to handle.

It contains clay absorbents with granular crystalline Silica generate highly carcinogenic Silica dust and create excessive amounts of toxic waste and is not only lighter, with seven times the absorbency, but it also costs less.

FlashDry is designed to be a more sustainable way to clean up oil and chemical spills without putting first responders at risk.

EarthSafe’s line of industrial-strength cleaning solutions includes a more effective way to mitigate water damage and sick building syndrome at a lower cost per square foot. Its XMold Pro is designed to inhibit the growth of harmful moulds and protects indoor and outdoor surfaces whilst remaining harmless to personnel and the environment.

Joe Finn, former Boston Fire Commissioner, Chief of the Department, and current First Responder Safety Advisor for EvaClean said of chemical cleaning products: “Firefighters and EMS personnel handle all kinds of emergencies, including hazardous spill clean-ups and mould remediation.

“To ensure the health and welfare of our first responders, the chemicals they use to mitigate these issues in the field must be as safe and effective as the disinfectants they use in the firehouse.”

Steve Wilson, EarthSafe CEO added: “With Joe’s guidance, our team is developing safer cleaning technologies to better protect first responders both in the firehouse and on the job.”
