03Do I need to wipe down the areas that have been sprayed?
Treated surfaces must remain wet for at least 10 minutes and then either allow to air dry or wipe up excess liquid. Do not breathe in the spray.

09 What does it mean to have an “approved kill claim?”
Once a disinfectant gets official EPA approval, it allows us to legally promote the disinfecting virus-killing claims on our product's packaging and advertising.
10 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 get the black color out. It is 100% possible to kill black mold without changing its color. Only bleach or high strength hydrogen peroxide with 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 absolutely kills black mold without bleaching the mold out. The proper process of getting rid of the mold for good, starts by killing all of the growth first. The second step is to thoroughly clean 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 re-mediators may go over the area with a fungicidal sealant which is a fungicidal coating to fully prevent mold regrowth in the future especially in high humidity areas.
11 Is BenzaRid safe to ingest?
No, BenzaRid is not safe for ingestion. If for any reason you ingest this product, seek medical attention immediately.
12 Can I add this to the laundry? If so, how much (I have one of those small, portable washers that I use in the tub)?
You can add this in 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 the material cannot be washed in hot water, it is fine to wash it as the directions call for. Use 1/4 of the typical laundry detergent you would normally use including ‘High Efficiency’ detergent. Run cycle and make sure soapy feel is out of the material. If it feels soapy then run it again with NO detergent. Then dry as usual.
13 Can I use this product in a fogger? What type of fogger do I need to use with BenzaRid?
We do have many customers that use a cold fogging device to apply BenzaRid. Currently fogging devices are difficult to find on the market, however, they are out there if you try hard enough. Types you can use with BenzaRid: You can use Ultra Low Volume (ULV) cold foggers, regular cold foggers, electrostatic foggers, and spraying devices. Some customers have also used a High Volume Low Pressure (HVLP) "gun" in conjunction with pressurized air devices to apply BenzaRid as well. ULV foggers are a good 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 charge particles causing them to "bind" to surfaces. Those particles adhere to just about any surface for much longer periods of time. Please keep in mind that you must wear a P-100-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.
14 How much of this would you need to use in a fogger?
Unfortunately, this is a subjective question because it depends on a number of factors. The amount of BenzaRid needed varies widely depending on the types of fogger used, as well as taking into consideration the size of the room or area to be fogged. For instance, a 20’x 20’ room might only need to fog for 20 minutes vs a warehouse, which could potentially need hours to run. It really all hinges on the flow rates of the fogger and the size of the area. For that same reason, the quantity is also very subjective. Most contractors who fog for sterilization and disinfection start with 1-2 gallons on smaller rooms/areas as opposed to a warehouse, which could take several 5-gallon pails or more. You must wear N-95/P-100 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-time to dry. Once the dry process is complete, the space is safe to be used right away.
