Probiotics are safe and good bacteria creating a health promoting effect on humans, animals and the environment.
No, the microorganisms cannot become resistant to other microorganisms, only to chemicals that threaten them. There are no biocide chemicals in the probiotic cleaning, so no resistance.
Definitely! The probiotics used by Chrisal are internationally approved for use in food. Moreover, Chrisal performs some additional tests to be absolutely sure.

Not more than with regular cleaning. You use the products just like the other products, with a minimum of twice a week for optimal effect.
The PIP products represent a new generation of cleaning products, containing good bacteria to replace ‘bad bugs’ (such as Salmonella, E. coli, Staphylococcus, Clostridium…).
By applying good bacteria a competition with bad bacteria for space, food and fluid occurs on the treated surfaces (floors, walls, cages, animals …). Since the PIP bacteria are very active, they still win this competition and thus a healthy and stable microflora arises.
No, PIP products have no direct biocidal effect on other bacteria. As such, they will not lead to the build-up of resistance among pathogenic micro-organisms.
Chrisal’s probiotic products are applicable anyplace where hygiene is important!
- Hospitals and healthcare facilities – nursing homes, medical clinics, etc.
- Residential and commercial buildings
- Schools and institutions
- Sports and recreational facilities
- Offices and workplaces
- Farms and animal housing – horses, cows, pigs, chickens, dairy
- Water systems
- Private homes
No, the best results with PIP products are obtained when no disinfection is done anymore. When certain conditions should require disinfection, we advise a PIP treatment immediately after the disinfection in order to stabilize the environmental microbiota.
Due to their biological nature, all PIP products are perfectly safe, environment friendly and harmless. No protective clothing is required and contact with bare skin will have no negative effect. Additional information on the safety aspects of our products can be found in the downloadable MSDS files of each product.
The probiotic bacteria in the PIP products colonise the environment and create a stable and healthy microbiota. They maintain their activity for a couple of days, but a frequent addition of ‘fresh’ PIP bacteria is required to maintain optimal results. We do not recommend an interruption any longer than 3 days.
An over-concentrated use of PIP products will lead to a higher number of good PIP bacteria on the treated surface. This will in turn only result in more pronounced beneficial and longer lasting effects.
Given the presence of probiotic bacteria in the products, storage between 5-40°C is recommended. Direct sunlight is to be avoided.
