sprayer. Wipe dry. After final cleaning, reapply Sporicidin® Disinfectant
Solution to affected areas and allow to remain for 10 minutes. Sporicidin®
Disinfectant Solution provides 100% kill of disease and odor-causing organisms
and provides up to 6 months continuous, residual bacteriostatic protection when
applied to pre-cleaned hard, non-porous surfaces.
Deodorize HVAC System: Sporicidin® Disinfectant Solution is recommended as an
effective deodorizer to eliminate stale or musty odors in HVAC systems. Vacate
area and fog or spray Sporicidin® into HVAC system intakes while the system fan
is operating and allow enough spray time to allow Sporicidin® to contact
internal HVAC air duct surfaces. Repeat application as needed.
Prior to treatment, thoroughly inspect air duct system and complete any needed repairs. Mechanically clean air ducts in accordance with industry guidelines to remove gross filth and contaminants. Vacate area to be fogged. Fog into pre-cleaned ventilation duct system and allow Sporicidin® to air dry; do not rinse.
