Sporicidin® Disinfectant Solution
Air Duct Cleaning
Water and Flood Damage
Sewer Backflow Cleanup
Because of Hurricane Sandy, we have had very large orders for Sporicidin and Microban Disinfectant Spray to deal with the mold and mildew. Bleach has limited effectiveness against mold and also emit harmful chemicals into the air, especially if mixed with anything else. Many individuals and companies working in Hurricane Sandy affected areas are using the wrong products and not following safety precautions - see the Material Safety Data Sheet on Sporicidin.
Mold can grow on water-damaged surfaces in as little as 24 to 48 hours. In flood situations, take steps to dry affected areas as quickly as possible. Remove excess water as soon as possible. Some web sites say to use fans to circulate and absorb moisture in the air - this will just circulate the mold spores everywhere else! Throw out all water-logged and mold-infested materials that are replaceable, such as carpeting or ceiling tiles. If drywall has absorbed water, the drywall should be cut out 12 inches above the water level and replaced once the room has dried out. Wet foggers can be used to treat large or inaccessible spaces such as basements and attics. Foggers are available for rent at home improvement stores in the tool rental department. Run a dehumidifier to take additional moisture out of the air. Lastly, help prevent future mold growth by applying Sporicidin or Microban Disinfectant Spray to vulnerable surfaces.
