This hospital and industrial-strength disinfectant can kill MRSA and human Coronavirus and act as a fungicide and mildew stat. It is a colorless mold killer professionals use to remediate flood and water damage. It is used in hospitals, medical facilities, airlines, and areas requiring multi-purpose virucidal, bactericidal, and fungicidal performance. Proven to kill areas infected with Avian Influenza H1N1, H5N1 virus, MRSA, HIV/AIDS, HSV 1 and 2, Hepatitis B and C, Mycotoxin Black Mold (including Aspergillus Niger and others) within 10 minutes of contact.
For fungicidal performance, BenzaRid is effective on hard, non-porous surfaces with a 10-minute contact time against Candida, Albicans, & Trichophyton mentagrophytes (Athlete's foot fungus/cause of Ringworm), making it the perfect option for gym mats and dojos.

Do I need to wipe down the areas that have been sprayed?
Treated surfaces must remain wet for 10 minutes and air dry or wipe up excess liquid. Do not breathe in the spray. Rinse with potable water (drinking water) after use on surfaces that come into contact with food. Rinsing floors are only necessary if they are to be coated with a finish or restorer.
How do I apply BenzaRid?
Apply undiluted solution with a brush, cloth, sponge, or mechanical spray device to wet all surfaces thoroughly to clean and disinfect. Let stand ten minutes after application. All BenzaRid products come with a spray device included.

What does it mean to have an "approved kill claim?"
Once a disinfectant gets officially EPA-registered, it allows us to legally promote the disinfecting virus-killing claims on our product's packaging and advertising.
What are the steps to killing mold from walls, surfaces, etc.? Will this product also remove the stain left by the mold?
BenzaRid will kill all black mold; however, it does not remove the black color. It is 100% possible to kill black mold without changing its color. Only bleach or high-strength hydrogen peroxide will bleach the color out; however, neither bleach nor the high-strength hydrogen peroxide will kill the mold!
BenzaRid can prevent the spread or regrowth if the water problem is fixed. BenzaRid kills black mold without bleaching the mold out. Getting rid of the mold for good starts by first killing all the growth. The second step is thoroughly cleaning the area with bleach or high-strength peroxide. This step will diminish or remove the stain left behind by the mold. The last step is to respray with BenzaRid disinfectant as a safeguard. This will prevent the regrowth or spread of the mold once the original water problem has been fixed. Some mold remediators may go over the area with a fungicidal sealant, a fungicidal coating, to entirely prevent mold regrowth in the future, especially in high-humidity areas.
Is BenzaRid safe to ingest?
No, BenzaRid is not safe for ingestion. If, for any reason, you ingest this product, seek medical attention immediately.
Can I add this to the laundry? If so, how much (I have one of those small, portable washers I use in the tub)?
You can add this to laundry to disinfect anything cloth, including clothing. Use 2-4 cups in a typical laundry machine run on a long cycle with hot water. Hot water is best for sanitizing and sterilizing the material; however, if it cannot be washed in hot water, it is okay to wash it as the directions call for it. Use 1/4 of the typical laundry detergent you would typically use, including "High Efficiency" detergent. Run the cycle and ensure the soapy feel is out of the material. If it feels soapy, then rerun it with NO detergent. Then dry as usual.
Can I use this product in a fogger? What type of fogger do I need to use with BenzaRid?
We do have many customers who use a cold fogging device to apply BenzaRid.
Types you can use with BenzaRid:
You can use Ultra Low Volume (UVL) cold foggers, regular cold foggers, electrostatic foggers, and spraying devices. Some customers have also used a High Volume Low Pressure (HVLP) "gun" with pressurized air devices to apply BenzaRid.
ULV foggers are an excellent way to fog; however, electrostatic devices are the "crème-de la-crème" of fogging. Electrostatic foggers work by electrostatically charging particles of BenzaRid and reducing the micron size significantly. The electrostatics' properties effectively capture particles, causing them to "bind" to surfaces. Those particles adhere to just about any surface for much more extended periods.
Please remember that you must wear a P100-rated respirator if you are going to atomize the product and stay in the room while using these devices with BenzaRid.
The only thing that we would NOT recommend with our BenzaRid is a heat-based fogger. Because of the heat, the machine will quickly destroy the disinfectant, therefore rendering it ineffective.
How much of this would you need to use in a fogger?
Unfortunately, this is a subjective question because it depends on several factors. The amount of BenzaRid needed varies widely depending on the types of fogger used and the size of the room or area to be fogged.
For instance, a 20'x20' room might only need to fog for 20 minutes versus a warehouse, which could need hours to run. It all hinges on the fogger's flow rates and the area's size.
For that same reason, the quantity is also very subjective. Most contractors who fog for sterilization and disinfection start with 1-2 gallons in smaller rooms/areas instead of a warehouse, which could take several 5-gallon pails or more.
You must wear N95/P100 organic vapor respirators if staying with the machine for any length of time. Once the fogging is finished, air out the area and allow the space some time to dry. Once the dry process is complete, the space is safe to use immediately.
