Previously, we discussed the water damage restoration and mold remediation processes. Now, we're going to focus on the equipment used during mold remediation, specifically the role of sprayers in the mold remediation process.
We established that most homeowners need to hire a mold remediation company to remove mold, meaning that homeowners trust professionals to ensure that mold is removed and will not return. If a mold remediation professional fails to treat hidden mold, it could mean disaster for both homeowners and professionals. It only takes a single patch of mold combined with moisture to develop into a full-blown mold infestation.
SOLO CLEANLine Sprayers for Professional Mold Remediation
Mold remediation companies can reduce risk by choosing sprayers that evenly and adequately apply disinfectant. Solo offers a comprehensive line of sprayers designed for cleaning and sanitizing, including mold remediation. SOLO CLEANLine sprayers are ideal for the sanitizing and deodorizing portion of mold remediation.
1. Chemical Compatibility
Chemical compatibility is not a feature that mold remediation professionals always consider. Sprayers designed for cleaning and sanitizing are usually built with Viton® or Nitrile seals, which are suitable for some but not all cleaning jobs. Seals within a sprayer come in contact with chemical solutions, and seals will eventually corrode if they constantly come in contact with chemical solutions that have an incompatible pH.
SOLO CLEANLine sprayers offer two seal options—Viton® seals for acidic chemical solutions that are 1-7 on the pH scale and EPDM seals for alkaline chemical solutions that are 7-14 on the pH scale. Mold remediation professionals use disinfectants and deodorizers that fall on all levels of the pH scale. Mold remediation companies should determine the pH of their disinfectants and deodorizers and consider choosing sprayers with seals that are compatible with their products to increase sprayer longevity.
2. Pump Sprayer
Mold remediation professionals sometimes use trigger sprayers to sanitize and deodorize mold-affected areas, but they aren't the best option. While trigger sprayers are common, they aren't ideal for jobs that require a user to work for long periods of time. The continuous motion of depressing a trigger leads to finger fatigue and slows down the user. Trigger sprayers also provide uneven coverage, which increases the risk of missing hidden mold.
SOLO CLEANLine sprayers are built with heavy-duty pumps for quick pressurization that reduce finger fatigue. The pump feature allows users to work longer and cover a surface evenly by removing the constant motion of depressing a trigger.
3. Sturdy Material
SOLO CLEANLine sprayers are rugged and built-to-last. A major feature of SOLO CLEANLine sprayers is their durable, UV ray resistant HDPE tanks that will not dent, crack, or corrode. Sturdy materials, paired with the option to choose sprayer seals based on chemical compatibility, allow users to keep using the same sprayer for many jobs.
