Dry fogging is an amazing technology that gets rid of mold in a fast, efficient manner. But let’s face it, when it comes to introducing any new process into your home, especially one aimed at eliminating something as hazardous as mold, the safety of your family, pets, and property is paramount.

Today, let’s shed some light on the safety measures involved in dry fogging for mold remediation. As a local Champaign-based business specializing in this service, I assure you that safety is always our top priority.

Understanding the Dry Fogging Process

Before we jump into the nitty-gritty of safety, it helps to understand what dry fogging is. In essence, it’s a method that disperses a fine mist of EPA-registered disinfectant into the air, which travels throughout the space, settling on surfaces and in corners, effectively neutralizing mold spores. Sounds high-tech, doesn’t it? But with all that mist filling your home, you might wonder, “Is this safe?”

Chemical Safety

The first question on everyone’s mind is usually about the chemicals. “Are they safe for my family? What about my pets?” Rest assured, the disinfectant used in dry fogging is EPA-registered and has been rigorously tested for safety. Plus, we ensure the area is properly ventilated before you re-enter, making the environment safe for both humans and animals.

Human & Pet Safety

Safety starts with planning. We schedule the dry fogging process during a time when your house can be vacant. Humans and pets should vacate the premises during the treatment and for a short period afterward. Usually, a few hours away are enough. This ensures that the fog can do its work without causing discomfort or health risks to the occupants.

Operator Safety

You’re not the only one we’re keeping safe; our technicians are equipped with proper safety gear, including masks and gloves. They’re also well-trained in handling the equipment and solutions, ensuring a secure and effective application. Their safety training isn’t just a one-time thing; it’s ongoing, as we always stay updated with the latest safety protocols.

Structural Safety

Another concern you might have is if the fog will affect your belongings or the structural integrity of your home. The good news is that dry fogging is a “dry” process, meaning it won’t saturate or damage your walls, furniture, or personal items. The mist evaporates quickly, leaving behind a mold-free space without a mess.

Post-Treatment Measures

After the treatment, we don’t just pack up and go. We perform a thorough ventilation of the treated area. This removes any lingering fog and ensures that the air is clean and safe to breathe when you return home. As a bonus, it also aids in the drying process, leaving your home feeling fresh.

Follow-Up Tests

To make absolutely sure that the treatment has been effective and safe, we recommend a post-treatment air quality test. This ensures that the mold has been eradicated and gives you peace of mind that the air in your home is clean and healthy.

Customer Education

We believe that a well-informed customer is a satisfied customer. We provide you with all the information you need to understand the safety measures and are always ready to answer any questions you may have, both before and after the treatment.
