Q: Can Xtreme be used in our existing equipment, or do we need to buy new sprayers and foggers? 

A. Yes, Xtreme can be used in most equipment. The manufacturer of Xtreme does not manufacture spraying or fogging equipment. Since there are no harsh chemicals in Xtreme, there is less likelihood that damage will occur over time in the nozzle, etc.  Think of your equipment like an inkjet printer. You can buy a nice printer these days for $60.00, but the ink cartridges don't last very long, which forces you to spend more money and stops you from buying ink at a better price. This not by accident. 

Q: I use a bleach, hydrogen peroxide and/or hyphochlorous acid. Why should I switch solutions?

 

A: Bleach, also known as chlorine bleach or sodium hypochlorite is a powerful oxidizing chemical that when mixed with water, forms chlorine radicals that aggressively oxidize other substances.

In application, sodium hypochlorite corrodes plastics and metals, decreasing the useful life of these materials, including expensive sprayers and fogging equipment.

 

Chlorine is a respiratory irritant. It also attacks mucus membranes and burns the skin. As little as 3.5 ppm can be detected as an odor, and 1,000 ppm is likely to be fatal after a few deep breaths. Another hazard is the formation of dangerous chlorine gas when bleach comes into contact with ammonia. This can happen when it is accidentally mixed into a container with ammonia in it.

Sodium hypochlorite, hyphochlorous acid and ozone water must be mixed fresh daily to be effective, as the radicals by nature are not stable and begin to lose their effectiveness once the product is made, some after only a few minutes. Unused chemicals and waste is dumped into your plumbing system and ultimately the water supply.

Hyphochlorous acid and ozone water kill on contact, however they do not have an extended kill time like Xtreme (4 days).

Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) is useful against spores like anthrax. When H2O2 is mixed with water, it forms oxygen radicals and has a disinfecting ability. Hydrogen Peroxide is corrosive, has a short effective shelf life and degrades rapidly in the presence of light. Droplets and mist with Hydrogen Peroxide should not be inhaled.

Oxidizing chemicals may be effective against spores if properly mixed and applied, but users should consider if spores are a primary target pathogen before resorting to the use of oxidizing chemicals.
