5.1 MMS Tip No. 1 Mould in the home
Much more often than one thinks, open or hidden mould infestation in the living space is the actual trigger for the many intolerances, allergies and other illnesses. Mould can be caused by damp masonry e.g. due to incorrect external insulation or also due to incorrect ventilation habits. Mould fungi and spores are usually no problem for chlorine dioxide. There are two ways to use it.
On the one hand, the room in question can be disinfected with chlorine dioxide fumigation. Only the classical MMS is suitable for this purpose, since only this causes a strong gas formation during the activation. Depending on the size of the room you activate e.g. 30-40 drops of MMS in a glass bowl and do not add water. Instead, let this reaction run its course completely. Place this bowl in the middle of the room, close windows, doors and other cracks and fumigate the room for several hours (preferably overnight). This method safely kills not only the mold and mold spores in the visible areas, but also those that are suspended in the air. Afterwards the solution is clear, the chlorine dioxide outgassed and decomposed.
Attention: No people or animals should be in this room during the fumigation period! Although most of the chlorine dioxide has already decomposed after the fumigation, the room should first be generously ventilated to be on the safe side.
On the other hand, one can spray the mouldy areas with an activated MMS or CDS solution, pure or e.g. diluted 1:10 with water, using a spray bottle. If applicable. it is advisable to combine both methods one after the other.
Further areas of application
If a family member has a contagious disease, it can be useful to fumigate the sick room in between and after overcoming the disease in this way and thus disinfect it. This is a possible measure to prevent infection of other children and family members.
Neutralize strong odors
When organic material is broken down bacterially, a very unpleasant pungent odor is produced. Especially if an animal carcass or a human corpse has been lying in a room for a longer period of time. Again, the room fumigation is highly efficient and the room is again odorless and completely sterilized.
