Solutions Dilution Tool

Do you also find it annoying or difficult to dilute a solution with a certain percentage of active ingredient to a lower percentage? A 50% dilution will work. But sometimes it is necessary to go from 15% to 8.2%, then it becomes a bit more difficult.

 The formula

Of course there is a formula to find the right ratio:

from 15% to 8.2%

15% = 15 parts of 100 = Start Solution
You want 8.2% = 8.2 parts out of 100 = Final solution
8,2/15 = 0,546%
So of the (new) 100, 55% must be 15%

If 1 liter has to be made, this is still manageable… but if it has to be 7.3 liters, it becomes less fun. 

 Solutions Dilution Tool

It is not strange for us to receive questions about how to dilute a product and how to get from 12.5% to a solution that only contains 10 mg/l or a certain amount of ppm of active ingredient.
We have devised a simple but very handy Tool for this. The Tool displays the following data:
> % | gr/l | mg/l | ppm | l | ml <

The Tool asks to enter 3 data and everything else is calculated automatically:
1) Percentage Start/Basic Product
2) Desired percentage / Use solution
3) Desired amount of use solution (amount of liters to be produced)

The Tool is free to use for everyone. Do you find it useful yourself? Share it on your channels so others can use it too. we appreciate!

Keep in mind that you are and will remain responsible if you decide to use this tool. For liquids with a different specific gravity (much heavier than water) such as phosphoric acid and sulfuric acid, the gr/l, mg/l and ppm will no longer be displayed correctly (disclaimer!). The required amount (ml / l) will indicate the correct value.

Measuring is knowing

meten is weten


Is something clean because it doesn't look dirty?
At a time when viruses, fungi and resistant bacteria turn out to be solid enemies, we know better.
Not everything that seems clean turns out to be really clean… It can even be so polluted that we can become seriously ill and, in the worst case, die.

Hoe weet je dan of iets schoon genoeg is, als je het niet met je ogen kan onderscheiden? Het antwoord is: “METEN IS WETEN!”.

Exinfect helps with measuring!
We measure the RLU value with an ATP Luminometer. A mouthful to say that we can detect the presence of living microbiological organisms and express it in a value.

These values can provide insight into the effectiveness of your cleaning or disinfection. It helps to implement, maintain and control a particular standard. But more importantly, it helps in providing a safe environment for employees, visitors and customers.

Do you want to do a check measurement with regard to your cleaning? Please feel free to contact us. We are happy to help you.
Would you rather do the measurements yourself? Which can! The ATP Detector is for sale in our webshop.

ABC of mouth masks


There has been extensive discussion about the effectiveness of face masks against Covid-19. Since the spread of the virus via aerosols is seen as the greatest danger, the mouth mask is now established and almost indispensable. The face mask is of little value if not used properly. Proper use is in all cases combined with a distance of 1.5 meters from another person from a different household. Here are some reminders about the correct use of face masks:

What masks


Mask fits well on the side of the face, without gaps

Mask has a nose clip to prevent air escape

Complete coverage of your nose and mouth

2 or more layers, easy to breathe through, even with washable masks


Mask with valve or vent

Mask that is difficult to breathe through, for example vinyl or with covering printing

Alleen een “faceshield” is niet afdoende

How not to wear your mask

Under your nose

On your forehead

On your chin

Around your neck

Only on your nose

Dangling on one ear



Make sure the mask is an appropriate size for children


No mask for baby and toddler

How to handle your mouth mask


Wear a mask for up to 3 hours and less if breathing becomes more difficult


Face masks are not good for the environment and clog up the sewer, only throw them away in bins

How to take off your mask

Carefully remove the mask by removing the elastic bands from the ears

Only touch the straps and not the mask itself

Fold the outer corners together

Wash hands thoroughly immediately after taking off

Mold in your home


Besides the fact that mold on your wall or ceiling is very ugly and looks very unkempt, it can also cause unpleasant health problems. In this article we explain what mold exactly is, why it often keeps coming back and of course what can be done about it.

What is mold?
Molds are Fungi, a life form that can be single or multicellular. Fungus (mushrooms) is not a vegetable life form, as is often thought. Most fungi play an important role in the breakdown of dead plant and animal material. There are fungi that are not harmful and beneficial to humans and sometimes serve as food themselves. In this article we focus more specifically on the unhealthy mold that can develop in damp buildings. A characteristic of mold is that it thrives in a specific spectrum of humidity and temperature. For the most fungi, temperatures between 4 and 40 ˚C and a relative moisture content in the air of 70 to 100% is optimal. The more humid the air or material, the faster most fungi will grow. In most cases, mold is visible on ceilings and walls of rooms that are too damp, as dark spots. But mold can also be present in places where it is not visible, such as behind wallpaper, in the cavity wall, on insulation material or in crawl spaces in homes. 

What is the effect of mold in your home?
One thing is certain! If you have mold in the house, this means that the house (wall/ceiling/floor) is too damp in those places. The ideal relative humidity in a home at 20˚C is between 30-70%. If the relative humidity is above this, we speak of a damp home. When we see mold in the home, we know that the relative humidity is close to 70% or above. An indoor climate that is too humid results in higher heating costs, because it takes more energy to heat moist air than drier air. Mold also increases the maintenance costs of the home, by having to paint or replace stucco/wallpaper more often. There is also often a musty smell in a home with mold.
In addition to these cosmetic inconveniences, there is also an important harmful effect on health. Fungi propagate by releasing tiny spores that can float in the air. These spores can cause various (allergic) health complaints, especially to children and people with lung and respiratory complaints. (We note that too dry air in the home can also cause health problems)

Why does cleaning usually only help temporarily?
The fungal spores are well-protected "capsules", which can even lie dormant for centuries until the favorable situation arises for fertilization and growth. The protection is so good that it provides some protection against chemicals and the spores can even acquire a certain degree of resistance. So there is a good chance that when cleaning with a cleaning agent, mold spores will always survive, waiting for the favorable situation to become active again. That is why cleaning must be done accurately, systematically and with the right resources.

What is the solution?
Although cleaning is of course the first step, reducing the moisture content to 55% is the way to get rid of mold and achieve a healthy indoor climate. This can be done by:
> Good and adequate ventilation
> Adjustment of resident behavior (a household emits an average of 10L of moisture, per 24 hours, to the air in the home)
> Repairing leaking pipes or condensation
> Waterproof facade and roof
> No rising damp in the facade and floors
> Dry cellars and crawl spaces

Air Change Guidelines
> Living areas 0.9 dm³/s per m² > 3.24 m³/h per m² > with a minimum value of 25 m³/h
> Toilet areas 7 dm³/s > 25.2 m³/h
> Bathrooms 14 dm³/s > 50.4 m³/h
> Lounge with cooker 21 dm³/s > 75.6 m³/h

As periodic maintenance to keep mold away, an environmentally friendly agent such as Sodium bicarbonate and/or cleaning vinegar solution being used. This is much better for nature and your health than extremely chemical and dangerous agents. PAY ATTENTION! Cleaning vinegar can also irritate the eyes and the respiratory tract. Provide adequate ventilation by opening windows and doors.
However, if the mold has had the opportunity to settle in the subsurface for a long time, a more professional approach is desirable (or even necessary). 

Exinfect repairs leaks, cleans, repairs, investigates where necessary, takes measurements and makes adjustments to the home, both inside and outside.

Disinfection of toilets | Important chain!


According to the RIVM, (Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment) the general rule of thumb for transmitting Covid-19 after infection is:If you have no complaints (fever, cough, cold) for 24 hours, and it is a week after you became ill, you can at least no longer infect other people. ”

It is important to note, however, that several studies currently indicate a longer presence of the Covid-19 virus in the intestines of the infected. A study by the Amsterdam UMC | AMC shows that after the virus has disappeared from the throat and nose, the Covid-19 virus remains in the feces of the test subjects for quite some time. 
The publication can be found here:

What does this mean?
When someone is no longer considered contagious, that person's feces (and urine!) may contain the Covid-19 virus, which can be transmitted to others, for weeks to come. Toilets are known to have a high risk of transmitting viruses and other pathogens.
This knowledge gives extra weight to the importance of keeping (public) toilets continuously disinfected.

Provide a healthy environment for your family, employees, customers and visitors. Clean and disinfected toilet units certainly contribute to this.
Exinfect is the partner for realizing healthy buildings and minimizing risks related to contamination with viruses.

Cleaning vs Disinfection


When something has been cleaned it looks neat and this generally makes us feel safer with regard to our health. We also easily link the quality of a restaurant to its optical cleanliness, for example. And that's a good thing, because dirt is obviously not good. But it is important to understand that if something looks clean, it does not mean that there are no pathogens on it.
In this article we therefore briefly mention the definitions of Cleaning (cleaning) and Disinfection.

The thorough removal of contamination with, for example, water, brushes and cleaning agents. There is also dry cleaning such as vacuuming and dusting. The goal is to ensure that no breeding ground or an inviting environment for pathogens (disease makers) will arise. While cleaning can certainly help reduce pathogens, it remains a superficial agent and does not completely eliminate pathogens. Some cleaning agents that are used in the cleaning process:
- Detergent
- Surface cleaners
- Glass cleaners

In order to speak of disinfection, there must be an elimination of 99.9% of pathogens. To achieve disinfection, it is necessary that the surface is clean and clean. The disinfectant medium must be able to reach everything easily in order to eliminate pathogens, but this is not possible if there is a lot of contamination. Where cleaning takes place at the level of visible dirt, disinfection neutralizes viruses, bacteria, mold and spores. Some disinfection methods are:
– Chlorine / Hypochlorite
- Ozone
- UVC light
- Hydrogen peroxide
– Alcohol
– Plasma

In addition to cleaning and disinfection, there is also the possibility to sterilize. Sterilization guarantees that 100% of all pathogens are eliminated. This is necessary, for example, to prepare surgical tools for the next round of use.
