Clean and Deodorize HVAC Systems
HVAC APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS
Does your home/office have the 'sick house' syndrome?
If you have a heat-pump, do you occasionally get "dirty sock syndrome"?
Is there mold or mildew growing in your HVAC?
SNiPER™ to the rescue!
SNiPER Disinfectant and Odor Eliminator is the perfect product to disinfect and deodorize your HVAC, whether it is in a car, in your home, or in large commercial systems.
The reasons this product is so well suited to HVAC cleaning are because of the very low toxicity, the ease of application and the non-corrosive nature of this EPA registered product. SNiPER™ kills mold, mildew, fungal infections and spores in the air. And it does this while being friendly to the indoor environment. You can spray it directly on the coils and into the ductwork and not have to worry whether you are leaving behind a toxic mess for the people who have to breathe that air.
SNiPER™ has the power to kill mold, mildew and fungal infestations, but has the lowest toxicity ratings that the EPA gives to any product. So you can use this product to clean while people and pets are present, and you don’t have to worry about toxicity issues. Your indoor environment can remain pristine even during the clean-up.
Odor issues from the indoor coils
Dust, pet hair, dander, airborne germs, mold spores and the like get trapped by the air filter. If your filter is not changed frequently enough, however, some of those particles do not get trapped on the filter, and wind up trapped on the intake side of the indoor coils. Cleaning these coils will result in lower energy bills, so this is an excellent reason to change your filter regularly.
Dirty coils can become a breeding ground for organisms that can begin to smell bad. In the same way that micro-organisms can feed on your sweat – and cause you to smell bad! - mold and mildew here can cause your entire home or office to smell bad. This is where non-corrosive SNiPER™ can help. With SNiPER™, you can safely disinfect and deodorize without toxic chemicals, which will result in a healthier home or office.
Now, get ahead of other air-cleaners. You are a part of the 21st Century. Choose SNiPER™!
7 EASY APPLICATION TIPS
Before beginning cleaning of the HVAC system, spray SNiPER™ on any known sites of contamination, and in the air of each room where contamination exists.
- Using a fine misting sprayer, lightly apply SNiPER™ at each return intake grille in your home.
- If a furnace is present, apply SNiPER™ to the base of the return at the furnace connection.
- Apply SNiPER™ to each room vents allowing for light, but complete moistening.
- Fog a light misting spray over the filter of the HVAC system. Moisten thoroughly, but be careful to not to get the filter soaking wet.
- Turn off the system for approximately 10 minutes to allow the filter to dry.
- Turn ventilation system to ‘on’ position rather than ‘auto’. Allow to run continuously for 2 hours.
- Do a sniff test in each room. If odors are not completely removed, reapply SNiPER™ to sites where odors or contamination began.
NOTE: As an oxidizer, SNiPER™ must have direct contact with the odor SOURCE to be able to do it's job. You will also find that SNiPER™ works best when application has completely dried. Do not re-apply if the site is still moist; allow it to dry thoroughly, give it the 'sniff' test and only then re-apply if needed.
Heat Pumps and "Dirty Sock Syndrome"
Dirty Sock Syndrome first appeared in the 1970's with the introduction of Heat Pumps. If your heat pump begins to give off an odor very like the smell of dirty socks, your home may be suffering from this issue. SNiPER™ is the perfect treatment against this problem not only because it can kill the microbes responsible for this odor, but because it is non-corrosive and can kill these microbes safely without contributing to a toxic household.
To treat this issue, go right to the source and give the coils a thorough cleaning. Check to make sure that there is proper drainage and that no drain is blocked up. Once clean again, spray the entire coil liberally with SNiPER™. Remember that SNiPER™ needs to have direct contact with ALL of the microbes, so you may have to spray quite heavily to ensure it gets into every nook and cranny. Allow to air dry naturally.
Other tips to prevent Dirty Sock Syndrome
Replace your air filter regularly. This helps keep the coils clean and thus denies microbes a 'food source'.
Unblock any drainage tubes regularly. Microbes need moisture to live and keeping the drainage system clear will reduce this moisture.
SNiPER™ is lethal to micro-organisms of significance that inhabit this earth. Whereas bleach is cheap and can also kill some of these organisms, it is also corrosive and toxic. Protect yourself, your home and your family - use non-corrosive, hypoallergenic SNiPER™.
