Dry Fog Remediation is a more advanced process that solves many of the limitations of traditional remediation.
Dry Fog is a two step process that, 1) uses a sterilizing formulation called InstaPURE to kill mold and neutralize the toxins it produces, and 2) EverPURE which is a formulation that provides a microscopic coating on surfaces that helps kill new mold spores that may enter your home.
InstaPURE, the sterilizing formulation was created in the 1940s to sterilize the insides of dialysis machines between uses. It is still used today to clean dialysis machines and to sterilize hospital operating rooms.
EverPURE provides a preventative barrier that actually attracts new mold entering the home and kills it on contact. The coating in so thin you don’t see it but it can last for years and helps prevent new mold that enters your home from taking hold and growing.
The Dry Fog process was developed about 20 years ago. It uses a patented technique using air pressure to atomize InstaPURE, creating a gas that is able to penetrate areas inaccessible to liquid treatments. The particles in the gas range from 6-8 microns in diameter while mold spores generally vary from 10-30 microns in diameter. The air pressure required to create the Dry Fog also creates air pressure in the room that enables Dry Fog to physically penetrate all spaces and porous materials that mold spores can penetrate—into wall cavities, behind base boards and cabinets, into materials like furniture, wallboard and clothing. The Dry Fog goes everywhere mold can go and kills it on contact.
Dry Fog Remediation was developed about 20 years ago by using InstaPURE to kill existing mold and EverPURE as a preventative to help prevent new mold from taking hold and growing.
Several studies, including a 6-month study by the US Army Corp of Engineers, show the level of mold spores inside buildings treated with EverPURE remained low or decreased even when outside levels of mold increased during peak seasons. Both InstaPURE and EverPURE are EPA certified 100% safe for humans and pets.
One benefit of this is that you do not need to tear apart your walls and do not need to replace your furniture, carpets and clothing.
The one weakness with Dry Fog remediation is that the fog can not penetrate water so it will not kill mold if the mold is actually wet. For this reason we do a very thorough evaluation to help the homeowner locate every moisture source in the home before we treat it. And, we have a team that helps you find the right contractor to fix what is found before we treat your home.
Because of our thorough approach we are able to stand behind our industry leading warranty.
