We have had very large orders for Microban Disinfectant Spray to deal with the mold and mildew. Bleach has limited effectiveness against mold and also emits harmful chemicals into the air, especially if mixed with anything else. Many individuals and companies working in wet or flooded areas are using the wrong products such as bleach and not following safety precautions - see the Safety Data Sheet on Microban Disinfectant Spray and the label for Microban Disinfectant Spray.
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 Microban Disinfectant Spray to vulnerable surfaces.
The exclusive Microban formula was originally developed in 1962 to quickly and effectively disinfect hospital operating rooms. Currently, Microban is widely used in residential, commercial, institutional and industrial properties. Microban's unique formulation is patented in the US, Canada and other countries.
Disease causing bacteria, fungi and viruses cause illness and threaten our health and well-being. It is well documented that mold, mildew, fungi and bacteria cause materials to degrade and deteriorate. The destructive action of microorganisms on materials often results in unpleasant odors.
Unlike chlorine bleaches, the Microban formula is pH balanced and is non-corrosive.
Microban has been rigidly tested under government recommended procedures by internationally renowned testing laboratories, universities and hospitals. Microban testing insures its safety to you, your family, your pets and the environment. MicroBan Disinfectant is registered with the United States Environmental Protection Agency.
Industrial Hygienists and environmental consultants have learned to trust Microban. These professionals commonly specify Microban when they provide guidance and prepare microbial remediation protocols
Microban has been rigidly tested for efficacy and toxicology under strict governmental guidelines.
Microban has been job tested on thousands of water damage and microbial remediation projects performed in residences, businesses and institutions.
Leading disaster restoration and microbial remediation firms depend on Microban.
Microban is suitable for application to a wide range of materials and surfaces. Microban is strong enough to destroy harmful disease causing microorganisms while gentle enough to be applied to delicate textiles, carpets, rugs, antiques and sleep surfaces. Microban is suitable and approved for use within residential, commercial, industrial and institutional properties.
While cleaning removes visible contamination, significant quantities of microorganisms are often left behind. An application of Microban after cleaning destroys many of these microorganisms, thus preventing them from multiplying. The Microban formulation contains high levels of active ingredients, that destroy microorganisms upon application and then provide residual protection against odor causing microorganisms.
Microban offers simultaneous protection against germs, odors, mold and mildew.
