Indoor air is two to five times more polluted than the air outside and may be significantly higher than that. Chemicals, gases, odors, mold spores, dust mites, particulate matter, volatile organic compounds, ozone, carbon monoxide, formaldehyde... the list is seemingly endless but it all boils down to one thing: It's bad for your health.
Indoor air quality is a health problem in a home or office. The problem exists because the air we breathe indoors is polluted. The pollution comes from a myriad of sources. Toxins, pollutants and noxious substances are all around us, emitted by everything from rugs to people, printers to furniture, HVAC system to cleaning solutions, and of course outdoor air.
Short-term symptoms of indoor air pollution include fatigue, headaches, itchy eyes, raspy throat, and nasal congestion. Long-term health effects include emphysema, bronchitis, and even cancer, limited reproductive function, and shorter life expectancy.
Breathing clean air is the healthiest and most productive thing you can do for yourself. It can make your immune system stronger and make you feel better because you will have eliminated a whole lot of stuff that is just no good for you!

X-100T is a concentrated water-based contact odor neutralizer and deodorizer. It can be safely applied on hard and soft surfaces, porous or fibrous materials, using hand sprayers, airless sprayers, foggers, carpet or upholstery cleaner and bucket wash-down methods.
X-100T can also be added to washers to treat textiles and clothing having musty or smoke damage odors. X-100T can be used as a mister over chemically made products to pull out the odor-causing molecules and render them neutral. X-100T surfactants deliver and disperse bio-sensitive deodorants, neutralizing odorous materials on contract.
For contact odors, X-100T should be misted or sprayed on carpets, furniture or fabrics. You can mist it on full strength or dilute with water, cutting it in half depending on the intensity of the odor.
Apply X-100T directly on the affected surface. Repeat application or rinse if necessary. When applying, dilute X-100T with tap water to desired concentration.
X-100T can be also be added to fire hose systems for bulk disaster restoration.

X-200T can be applied through cleaning equipment, or with airless, pressure, tank, hand sprayers or wash-down methods. It can also be added to washers to treat textiles and clothing, applied with carpet cleaners, and added to fire hose systems for bulk disaster restoration. It is concentrated and can be diluted as necessary.
This product is non-toxic, non-flammable, biodegradable and environmentally safe.
Studies have shown that as much as 50% of the air in your home comes up from your basement or crawlspace. This air is often higher in moisture content and carries with it various allergens and musty odors. When conditions linger above 60% relative humidity for extended periods of time, mold, mildew, and bacteria growth is stimulated. The American Lung Association, American Medical Association, and the EPA recommend maintaining a relative humidity level in the 30% to 50% range. Ventilation and air conditioning alone cannot provide the protection offered by a high quality dehumidifier.
