How exactly does the treatment work?

As a common disinfectant, Peracetic Acid does most of the heavy lifting. Upon completion of service, there will be no traces of Peracetic Acid left in the home or place of business.
Acetic acid is a household disinfectant. When mixed with water it becomes vinegar.

Also commonly found in the home, Hydrogen Peroxide is used as an anti-septic for cuts and scrapes.

EPA's Safer Choice list.
How They Work Together
In a process called "lysis" the oxygen ruptures the cells and renders them inert.
When there is no more Hydrogen Peroxide left in the fog the reactions stop and we are left with only Acetic Acid, water vapor, and stable oxygen. The levels are safe for anyone to reenter before we leave.
When the oxygen leaves
Peracetic Acid becomes Acetic Acid. It then reacts with Hydrogen
Peroxide to create more Peracetic Acid. The leftover molecule is
Once mixed with water and released in our fog, one oxygen atom breaks off the Peracetic Acid and "hunts down" bacteria and mold spores.

area creates a surface that
attracts and destroys microbes.
After treatment all surfaces have
an anti-microbial layer with
microscopic spikes facing outward.
With a single Nitrogen atom, each of the
spikes has a positive electrical charge.
Microbes (such as mold and bacteria)
are negatively charged and
attracted to the spikes like magnets.
Upon impact the spikes tear the cells apart.
The process can be viewed in this video.
They may look intimidating, but you'll never know these spikes are there. There is no residue, texture, or chemical release. And at 1/1,000 the size of human hair they are incredibly tiny.
So tiny, in fact, you can fit almost
500 trillion on the surface of a quarter.
