Our story begins more than 40 years ago, when Carl Straub first started HVAC cleaning business in his native Australia. With first-hand experience gained inside the ductwork and AHU’s of high rise buildings, he was called to provide emergency measures for an outbreak of Legionnaires disease in a large exhibition centre. But removing dust and debris was not enough to control pathogens like viruses, bacteria and mould, that were causing damage to people’s health. Using harsh chemicals was the only way to deal with the problem at that time. Or was it?
“Thinking green” wasn’t as common concept as it is today.
But Carl knew there had to be a way of dealing with PATHOGENS IN THE AIR safely, keeping the indoor air clean and safe to breathe AT ALL TIMES.
THAT’S WHEN HE THOUGHT OF TEA TREE OIL.
As a native Australian, being familiar with beneficial qualities of Tea Tree Oil, that had been known to the aboriginal peoples of Australian continent for hundreds of years.
In 1982 Carl Straub began developing a Tea Tree Oil based product, that could be safely and effectively used in
indoor environment, to remove all pathogens from all surfaces, as well as indoor air.
