What is fogging?
When a Master Technicians refers to fogging, it is the process by which the GM2000 is applied within your dwelling. The product is misted by use of a spray device and so gains freater and more consistent coverage of an entire dwelling, similar to the steam created when you have a hot shower.
What is the Product?
The product used in this process is called GM2000. It was first developed to combat the threat of Anthrax in the United States. It was extensively tested by both the military in the United States, by independent testing laboratories here in Australia and also in Singapore. It achieved extremely successful results. Since anthrax is a spore, like mould, it has been modified for use in the mould industry. Let’s face it, we do not have anthrax in our homes so there is no need for such a powerful product to be used. In the order of “hard to kills” Anthrax ranks at the top, mould, bacteria and viruses are further down the list.
The testing of this product has included skin irritation testing, also known as Acute Dermal Irritation/Corrosion testing and showed results at no signs of erythema or oedema at anytime with examinations conducted at 60 minutes, 24,48 and 72 hours. What this means is that the product can be classified as a non-skin irritant product.
Further testing of the product regarding its biodegradability was conducted with the result described as “rapid and excellent biodegradability”. Our product achieved a degradation of 95% with a substance that has greater than 70% described as having excellent biodegradability.
Another test shows averaging >99.99% reduction when tested against Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli, Candida albicans and Staphylococcus aureus (pseudomonas, E.Coli , candida and Golden Staph).
GM2000 is being tested frequently for its efficiency in the elimination of mould. It is successfully used by Master Technicians in the United States where post remediation testing is mandatory.
