17. Why use Gelair instead of bleach or vinegar? 

   a. Gelair Solution vs. Chlorine Bleach:

 

  • Gelair will not produce white-bleached spots where there is over spray. It can be used on any surface, except on some plastics.
  • Tea tree oil has a very high boiling point and will stay in‐sit for a long time (days). Chlorine vaporizes quickly.
  • Chlorine will cause corrosion to metals. The chloride will cause corrosion of metals and even stainless steel.
  • Chlorine has an odor that people do not like, whereas tea tree oil has a pleasant scent.
  • Many people are allergic to chlorine.
  • Chlorine often causes people to have an asthmatic attack.
  • Chlorine is highly alkaline and is a serious safety hazard – if you accidentally
    spray it into the eyes, it can cause severe/permanent eye damage.
  • Chlorine will attack many materials.
  • Ever wonder why you bleached the moulds out and it's back again after a few days? Chlorine bleach decolourizes and kills mould on the surface but does not penetrate porous surfaces to kill the roots of the mould.
  • Gelair Tea Tree Oil Spray is specially formulated to penetrate porous surfaces and kills the mould at its roots. Spraying Gelair Tea Tree Oil Spray on tile grouts prevent mould from growing back for up to 12 weeks.
  •  

     
    b. Gelair Solution vs. Vinegar:

     

  • Vinegar only works because of its acidity.
  • It would help if you got liquid vinegar directly onto the Mould. It will not treat Mould, which is hidden.
  • Vinegar does not kill all types of moulds, bacteria, and viruses.
  • Vinegar is the cheapest safe acid to use.
  • Vinegar has a strong unpleasant smell, and some people hate the smell of vinegar.
  • Vinegar is much more volatile than Tea Tree Oil (TTO), so it will disappear nearly at the same rate as water, whereas Tea Tree Oil (TTO) will exist on a surface for a long time.
  • Vinegar does not penetrate materials as well as tea tree oil.

    18. Why use Gelair instead of pure tea tree oil? 

         a. Pure tea tree oil is very potent and can damage surfaces and irritate skin.
