How exactly does the treatment work?

If you haven't already read about our unique process using dry fog, we recommend

starting there first. Then come back here for more insight.  Find it here.

Peracetic Acid

CH OOOH

3

As a common disinfectant, Peracetic Acid does most of the heavy lifting during the treatment. By the time we're done there will be no traces of Peracetic Acid left in the home.

Acetic Acid

CH OOH

3

Acetic acid is a household disinfectant. When mixed with water it becomes vinegar.

Hydrogen Peroxide

H O

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

(Stable Oxygen)

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 

water vapor.

Once mixed with water and released in our fog, one oxygen atom breaks off the Peracetic Acid and "hunts down" bacteria and mold spores. 

Step 2: The EverPure Process

Preventing Future Mold Growth

As the backbone of our warranty, this step uses mechanical means, not chemical reactions, to protect your home after we leave.

Untreated Surface

The treated

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.

Treated Surface

The process can be viewed in this video. 

Square area with numerous spikes. Measuremnt shows spikes are around 10 nanometers or smaller.

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.
