Create and/or seal treatment area so that it is a ‘confined space’ without direct sunlight; i.e. close windows/doors/shades, etc. Remove all visible odor sources.
Then remove people, plants and pets from the ‘confined space’ during the treatment period. Furniture and general room contents will not be harmed by ClO₂ Vapor Treatments.
Select appropriate chlorine dioxide vapor product
Nearly all in-place chlorine dioxide is marketed & sold globally in ‘grams of chlorine dioxide’ produced.
There are many different chlorine dioxide formats including Tablets, Sachets, Sponges & Powders. Usage, Cost and Regulatory Fit are the three primary variables in product selection.
Nearly all formats and products generate chlorine dioxide vapor when they are added to water.
Activate your desired chlorine dioxide vapor product. Use individual product activations in highly fragmented spaces.
All in-place chlorine dioxide products will begin generating chlorine dioxide vapor in roughly 2 to 15 minutes time.
Vapor Activation Treatment
3 to 24 hours – depending on issue severity
Place ClO₂ and its container in center of the ‘confined space’.
Air-out the ‘confined space’ before re-entering and re-occupying
If you smell a chlorine-like odor, continue to air-out space.
Safely dispose the remaining ClO₂ solution down toilet/drain.
For best results, use a small aerator to agitate the CLO₂ concentrate products. Any low cost, $10 Amazon sourced fish-type.
Aerators are highly effective at rapidly pushing ClO₂ out of the concentrate and shortening treatment times, but are not required with any ClO₂ product. Without aeration, ClO₂ vapor will release from ClO₂ product concentrates for up to 24 hours.
