Introducing our Concrobium Mold Fogger: Part 2
Now that you’ve chosen the fogger as the best method of application for your mold remediation project, let’s get started. Today we’ll discuss prepping your space, user guidelines, and what to look out for when fogging.
Prior to Fogging:
- Cover or remove sensitive materials: Since Concrobium Mold Control is water based, it can cause water marks/damage on sensitive materials if excess solution is not wiped away before it dries. Surfaces susceptible to this type of damage include wood furniture/flooring, leather/suede fabric, electronics, paperwork, artwork, etc. ALL flooring (hardwood, laminate, vinyl, tile, carpet, etc.) should be covered prior to fogging to avoid over-saturation.
- Close any openings: Close vents, registers, windows, doors, etc., so the fog stays in the room and no product goes to waste.
- PPE: Make sure you’re wearing your N-95 respirator, goggles, and gloves as mold affects everyone differently. The goggles and gloves will also help you see and breathe when re-entering the room to rotate the machine. While Concrobium Mold Control is completely non-toxic, expect the room to fill up with a thick fog.
- Tip: If you have a room with a length longer than 60 ft., Section the room off and treat each area separately as the fogger only has a reach of 30 ft.
Ready, Set, Fog:
- Place the fogger on a step ladder or table- halfway between the floor and ceiling- in the middle of the room. (Ex. For 8 ft. ceilings, fogger should be 3 or 4 ft. off the ground). For crawlspaces, you can put the fogger directly on the ground.
- One gallon of Concrobium Mold Control will treat approx. 2800 sq. ft. of total surface coverage (walls, floor, ceiling, and everything else in the room)
- One gallon will take approx. 20 minutes to run through on a Medium setting
- Rotate the fogger so all four corners of the space have been fogged successfully.
- Once fogging is complete, allow the mist to dissipate for 20 minutes before reopening any vents, door, windows, etc.
- Run-off or pooling is a sign of over-application. Wipe away the excess using a Concrobium Mold Control dampened cloth or sponge, or a white residue will be left on the surface.
- For any stubborn mold staining, follow up with an application of Concrobium Mold Stain Eraser or repaint the surface. Make sure to reapply Concrobium Mold Control onto surfaces that were cleaned to prevent future regrowth.
- Tip: Using a dehumidifier or space heater after the fog has dissipated can help speed up the dry process. Concrobium Mold Control typically dries within 2 hours, depending on temperature and humidity.
