Pyrethrum, or "insect powder", insecticide
Pyrethrum ("pie-wreath-rum") is a natural insecticide made from species of the chrysanthemum. It is a mixture of several different componetss called pyrethrins. Originally pyrethrum was extracted by grinding dried chrysanthemum flowers into a powder. Today, pyrethrum is made with solvents but is still widely used in household insect sprays and usually combined with another chemicals.
Hundreds of years ago people in central Asia discovered that dried, crushed flowers of certain chrysanthemums were poisonous to insects. During the Napoleonic Wars (1804-1815) this "insect powder" was used to control flea and body lice infestations by French soldiers. Since then, pyrethrum has been used in many forms for effective, low toxicity insect control. However, because natural pyrethrum is not stable in sunlight it is seldom used in commercial agriculture. Microban X590 uses synthetic Pyrethrum with Permethrin ("per-meth-rin"), on the other hand, is a synthetic, man-made insecticide, whose chemical structure is based on natural pyrethrum. The so-called pyrethroid insecticides were developed to match or exceed the effectiveness of natural pyrethrum but be more stable in sunlight. Pyrethroid insecticides are used in agriculture because of their stability in sunlight.
Permethrin is widely used and has recently enjoyed an upswing in homeowner popularity since the widely used insecticide diazinon was taken off the US market. Permethrin has many uses from landscape pest control to head lice shampoos, flea, tick and mosquito control on dogs, and mosquito control on outdoor clothing and camping gear. Permethrin is relatively low toxicity but highly toxic to cats and some other animals. The issue with cats it the personal grooming when the cats lay on the carpet and then lick themselves. Years of exposure to this is un-known. The main issue is inside the 28 day mark after application because of any residual that is designed to keep controlling pest long term.
Is natural pyrethrum a pyrethroid?
No. Pyrethrum is a relatively low toxicity natural insecticide and since it breaks down quickly, generally has low environmental impact as well. For these reasons it enjoys a reputation of being "safe". Pyrethroid insecticides, on the other hand, are generally more toxic, more environmentally persistent and therefore not as "safe". Unfortunately, some marketers continue to claim that pyrethroid insecticides like permethrin are "made from chrysanthmum flowers" implying that they are "natural and safe". These claims are false, and if done intentionally to mislead the claims are highly unethical. Microban X590 uses synthetic pyrethrum and not pyrethroid mixed with Quaternary Ammonium Cation
We use Microban X590 because for indoor cleaning, sanitizing, odor control this product has the longest history of use. Microban X590 has been marketed under Un-Smoke, Microban, ProRestore and now is owned by RPM International. RPM is known world wide for being a leader in topical treatment for solving a huge number of high performance building solutions.
Why mix with "Quat?' Quaternary Ammonium compound is found to remain stable in the presents of many soaps, surfactants, and and other sanitizers such as Phenol. It remains stable in storage for extended shelf life for allowable transport and distribution.
ProRestore (formally UnSmoke)
This is different than standard pest control because of the cleaning service at the same time. Micro-ban (RPM International) is recognized as a world leader in hard to solve building problems with high performance building solutions. We don't just spray along the base boards but treat and restore the entire floor. Do you want to move into a home and wander if blood was spilled, or what animals used this carpet like a toilet? If body fluids are present, what types of exposure does this suscept my family too? The number one cause to 'sick building syndrome' is improperly handled water damage. About 90% of all home experience some type of un-wanted water entering their living space through broken pipes, sewer back up, storms, malfunctioning appliances, water beds, aquariums, and the like. Many home owners just suck up the water and place small fans on top. They take no consideration to the padding under the carpet and foundation as well as water that soaks into the walls and cabinets. When you take contaminated water or clean water and mix it with dirt in the home, expose it to an environment of darkness (in the walls or under the carpet), provide a food source (the dirt and cellulosic material, <paper, wood>), provide a temperature humans are comfortable with 70 to 80 degrees F, mold, mildew and bacteria grows and accelerated rates. While this service does not clean the backing of the carpet, carpet cushion (pad) or sub floor, or sanitize in the walls, or air ducts it is way more protection that standard just "spray and go" type service.
Steam Brite also offers sub surface deodorization and oxidation treatment to carpet padding and backing without having to lift, disengage or re-install your carpet. This a perfect addition to the topical Microban service when heavy urine or other body fluids are in the carpet and cushion. Many pets will reuse the same spot on the carpet for years and years. Contaminating the carpet beyond what typical carpet cleaning service can correct. This allow the body fluids to soak into the backing and pad where they mix with the dirt. Did you know that a urine spot never dries! That is correct, the urine salts act like a descant and literally suck the moisture out of the air to keep the bacteria active!
