The Importance of Cleaning First
There are questions about how to best use H Factor for odor or sanitizing. The need to clean the building should be obvious. There is something called "Gross Cleaning" meaning to solve the worst or biggest cleaning issues, even though more detailed cleaning needs to be done. The easiest example would be a hoarder home or a pet kennel. Gross cleaning get the junk, waste, and debris out of the way, so the real cleaning can be done.
If the smell or disease threat is bad, use H Factor as a knock-down process with a ULV fogger for widespread impact, including cleansing the air of odor, germs, and pollution.
When the problem is pervasive, consider throwing out anything that has been ruined. Carpet can be a costly chore, but if it can be cleaned, mix H Factor in 1:9 mix with water with a carpet extraction machine. Or, pre-spray full strength prior to dry method cleaning.
Yellow smoke-stained walls should use a foaming sprayer with H Factor to coat the wall, then agitate with a bristle brush and wipe. The odor will be canceled, but the color will still be uneven.
Use H Factor in a spray bottle to clean kitchen and cabinets. There is a special surfactant in H Factor that will deep clean, deodorize, and sanitize like nothing else. A pH of 9 means this is a relatively safe, non-corrosive product.
In the end, success with your odor, sanitizing, or mold issue comes down to thorough or full effort that reaches every area and treats every odor source.
