How SAN-AIR Works

SAN-AIR™ products feature a proprietary blend of essential oils, purified water, and natural binders. Designed to combat mold and microbial contaminants indoors, the water-based gel evaporates and disperses throughout the space. It targets airborne and surface microbes, including bacteria and mold spores. The active ingredients disrupt microbial cell structures, preventing reproduction and growth.

Icon for verified The SAN-AIR difference; Why is SAN-AIR more effective than other mould solutions and remedies?

Antimicrobial agents come in three main types: BIOSTATS, BIOCIDES, and VIRUCIDES. BIOCIDES and VIRUCIDES kill germs quickly but can release harmful substances, posing risks to both health and the environment. On the other hand, BIOSTATS, like SAN-AIR, work more gently by slowing down germ growth, leading to a safer and more controlled elimination of microbes. While SAN-AIR primarily prevents germs from growing, it also shows effectiveness in killing viruses on contact, making it a versatile and safe choice for microbial control.

What is mould?

The presence of mould indoors can lead to a range of health problems. Mould spores, which are tiny airborne particles released by mould, can trigger allergic reactions such as sneezing, coughing, wheezing, and itchy eyes or skin. 

Can mould in your home be harmful?

Prolonged exposure to mould can exacerbate respiratory conditions, leading to more severe symptoms and even respiratory infections in some cases. Plus, there are certain types of mould produce mycotoxins, which are toxic substances that can cause symptoms ranging from headaches and fatigue to nausea and respiratory issues.

What causes mould at home?

Mould growth is often a consequence of excess moisture in the home. Various factors can contribute to this moisture buildup, including leaky plumbing, poor ventilation, high humidity levels, and water infiltration through walls or ceilings. Leaky pipes or roofs, condensation on windows, or even flooding can provide the ideal environment for mould spores to thrive and multiply. Once moisture infiltrates a space, whether it's a hidden corner or a poorly ventilated room, it creates the perfect conditions for mould growth.

The process of mould formation typically begins with the presence of spores in the environment. These spores are ubiquitous, floating in the air both indoors and outdoors. When they encounter a damp surface, they can settle and begin to grow, forming visible patches of mould over time. As mould colonies expand, they release more spores into the air, perpetuating the cycle and potentially spreading to other areas of the home.

How important is preventive work?

Regardless of the method chosen to remove visible mould at home, it's crucial to address the underlying moisture issue that allowed mould to thrive in the first place as part of the ways to prevent mould growth. Repairing leaks, improving ventilation, and controlling humidity levels are crucial steps in mould prevention. Regular inspection of plumbing systems, roofs, and other potential sources of water intrusion can help catch problems early before they lead to mould infestation.

Once these underlying issues are addressed, using SAN-AIR™ Mould Gone products can further help to prevent mould growth at home. SAN-AIR™'s unique natural formulation works to neutralise mould and bacteria, creating an inhospitable environment for their growth. But it's important to note that these products should be replaced every 6 weeks to maintain their effectiveness. You can easily tell when it's time to replace them by shaking the gel; if you hear it rattle, it means the solution has dried up and should be replaced.

Removing mould naturally with SAN-AIR™

SAN-AIR™ is a natural mould removal solution that harnesses the power of plant actives to combat mould, mildew, including other germs and bacteria. SAN-AIR™ products come in various forms, including sprays, gels, and diffusers, making them suitable for different applications and areas of the home. By utilising a blend of plant-based ingredients, SAN-AIR™ effectively targets mould at its source while also providing a safe, non-toxic and less harsh solution for homeowners compared to bleach or other chemical cleaners. 

Safety first: How to protect yourself from mould exposure

Mould removal may seem like a straightforward task but mould spores can irritate the lungs and trigger allergic reactions, so proper protection is essential. For lower-risk mould removal tasks (minimal mould growth), basic PPE should include:

  • A properly fitted disposable P2 respirator - Ensures you don't inhale harmful mould spores
  • Disposable gloves - Protect your hands from direct contact with mould

For higher-risk mould removal processes—such as extensive mould contamination—it is crucial to equip yourself with more comprehensive protection. This includes:

  • Full-face respirator 
  • Long, durable nitrile gloves
  • Disposable coveralls
  • Goggles for eye protection
  • Rubber boots or disposable shoe covers
  • Disposable cap or hood

But before you grab your cleaning supplies, consider your health too. While SAN-AIR products offer effective mould removal solutions, some individuals should avoid direct mould remediation due to underlying health conditions. If you have pre-existing respiratory conditions like asthma, COPD, or a weakened immune system, it's best to leave the mould cleaning to the professionals. Their expertise and equipment ensure a safe and thorough mould removal process, minimising your exposure risks.
