Bactakleen was founded in 2008 by the owners of Excelsia Technologies (Malaysia) after realising that there was an immediate need to improve the hygiene standards in our daily working environment, in our vehicles, our homes, to protect ourselves and our loved ones from harmful bacteria and viruses. Too often we see our children falling ill or our co-workers taking medical leave.
Conventional spray and wipe applications proved to be inadequate as they were only short term solutions and over prolonged use, became too costly and tedious. As the saying goes, “Necessity is the mother of invention” and this is how Excelsia Technologies sourced and clinically-tested the best of today’s anti-bacterial technology to provide a synergy of treatments to successful kill harmful micro-organisms, not just on contact services but in hard to reach places as well.
Bactakleen was first introduced in 2008 in Malaysia with the aim of improving the air that we breathe. Everyone talks about dust and pollution in the air but no one talks about bacteria, fungus and viruses in the air especially when coming from the air conditioning system. The simple fact remains that the air conditioning system harbors millions of bacteria, fungus spores and viruses that are harmful to humans and regularly is a catalyst to spread illnesses.
The traditional way of cleaning air conditioning systems are focused on removed physical dust and dirt but no one has even considered cleaning the air conditioner to remove bacteria and fungus. In countries that have humid conditions the bacteria and fungus growth are much greater and pose a greater threat to the health of the occupants in the building or the car. All air conditioners have this inherent problem and prior to the introduction of Bactakleen’s Ultra Mist there was no proper solution to treat this problem.
Bactakleen have since gained international exposure when it started to export to neighbouring countries. As of July 2020, Bactakleen product is distributed to over 52 countries around the world and is approved by major car manufacturers such as Toyota, Honda, Nissan, BMW and many others. Bactakleen is also used by many international hotel chains, oil and gas companies, food processing factories and many more.
In the recent Coronavirus outbreak Bactakleen under took testing with SGS to prove its product performance and was rewarded with good results showing 99% kill rate when Bactakleen products were tested against Human Coronavirus. Bactakleen products were also among the first to be used in the fight against Coronavirus in China in February 2020. Bactakleen products are among the first in the world to receive a 99% kill rate for Human Coronavirus.
