Mould

 

MOULD -Mycotoxins and allergens produced by the mould can be very harmful. The effects of these toxins on people can vary but they have been reported to include illnesses, allergenic and irritant effects, infections, neurological effects, and even death.







Third Party Comments on Chlorine Dioxide Mould Treatment: "While the gas treatment is successful in inactivating mould and bacterial colonies, the treatment comes with a caveat in that chlorine dioxide gas has corrosive properties and care has to be taken that the treatment does not result in the degradation of the contents as well as the components of the structure."  (That said it is noted that chlorine dioxide is widely used to destroy and prevent mould in highly sensitive library environments).  "It has been used in the past, as the disinfection of the offices of the Hart Senate Office Building by the Environmental Protection Agency in 2002 was achieved with the help of chlorine dioxide gas. This treatment can be considered where buildings are emptied of sensitive items and the construction of the building is such that there are inaccessible mould contaminated areas. In conclusion, this study has shown that chlorine dioxide gas can be effective as a fumigant of the inactivation of certain fungal colonies."

Only one Mould Remediation Treatment has been singled out by the American Academy of Sciences as being recommended as ..."the standard for building decontamination".  That technology is a process known as Chlorine Dioxide (ClOs) Gas Infusion. 

It was used to disinfect the Hart Senate Office building by the USEPA during the Anthrax terrorist scare in the USA.

It was used in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina to decontaminate multi story hospitals in New Orleans.

Now for the first time, it is available in Australia via Zychem Technology's patented Chlorine Dioxide Gas Infusion Technology.
