The process of Odor and Allergen Inactivation

When you contact DeepReach Oxidation, one of our knowledgable professionals will discuss our process with you and schedule a time to conduct an initial survey.   Then, a date for fumigation will be set. 

The Process:

1. Our DRO personnel will arrive at the scheduled time and go over the fumigation plan with you.

2.  You will be asked to have all plants, animals, fish or living things removed from the space.  There is no need to remove or cover computers, electronics, furniture or anything else.

3.  Our site manager will walk through the complete space with you, verifying no one or restricted item is remaining in the space.

4.  DRO will then use heavy guaged plastic to tape doors, windows and vents to prevent escape of the gas.

5.  The entrances will be placquared "DANGER - Do Not Enter - Fumigation in Process" 

6.   The site manager will place the required number of DRO Gas Release Units (GRU's) into the facility and prime them for activation.  Our patented gas sensor or sensors will also be placed strategically.

7.   Once all safety procedures have been confirmed and safety checklist verified, the site manager will remotely activate the GRU's which will start the fumigation of the chlorine dioxide gas.  The sensors will monitor the concentration needed and specified by the fumigation plan.

AT ALL TIMES THE SITE MANAGER IS IN CONTROL OF THE PROCESS AND CAN TERMINATE THE CHEMICAL REACTION IN THE GRU'S AND ASSURE SAFETY OF THE SPACE

8.  After the specified fumigation time, normally four hours, the site manager will enter the facility and test for any residual chlorine dioxide gas.  On confirmation that the space is clear, he will remove the placards, plastic and restrictions to entry. 

9.  The space will opened and allowed air our, HVAC systems will be run, and air will be circulated throughout the space.  We suggest a minimum 8 hours before entering the space.  During this time the characteristic chlorine smell will be prevalent, but will quickly start to disappear.  Most people describe the smell as "clean" or "sea breeze like." 

10.  If microbial testing is part of the fumigation and job plan, then samples will be collected for outside lab testing and confirmation.

11.  The property owner or manager will asked to tour the space with the site manager and confirm that no odors, smells, or visible mold remains.

12.  The property is ready for renewed enjoyment.
