Kanberra Gel is an all-natural proprietary blend of pharmaceutical-grade Australian Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca alternifolia) and Lemon-scented Tea Tree Oil (Leptospermum petersonii) with natural antiseptic properties when released airborne from the container via evaporation.
At the micro-biotic level, the air itself absorbs the pharmaceutical grade oils. As the air circulates and lands on the source (the mold, mildew, etc.), Kanberra Gel begins neutralizing and eliminating problems, and associated odors, on contact. It does so naturally, with no chemicals. Most importantly, the use of Kanberra Gel acts as a preventive program against these problems for up to 45 days after there is no longer gel in the container.
How Should I Place the Container?
The beauty of Kanberra Gel is that it can be placed anywhere, as long as you have a flat surface. If you are a new user of the product it is recommended you follow our usage modes with their approximate application times:
Shock Mode (2-3 days) – Uncap the product and place it open without the diffuser lid.
Maintenance Mode (up to 30 days) – Place the diffuser lid on the container to slow overall evaporation.
Protection Mode (30 to 90 days) – The application area is effectively ‘clean’ and the product will now provide airborne protection against any re-growth.
How Long Does Kanberra Gel work?
The dissipation rate for Kanberra Gel will vary by conditions. In typical applications, the gel will take anywhere from 3 to 8 weeks to completely evaporate however it will have a residual effect for up to 45 days. After this time it is recommended to replace the Kanberra Gel in order for it continually to offer protection. Various conditions will affect the dissipation rate. For example, if the Kanberra Gel is placed under a fan, the rate of evaporation will increase due to the increased air flow. In areas of heavy particulates, like cigarette smoke, heavy molds or around pets, Kanberra Gel may evaporate faster. Once the original particulates are addressed, the dissipation of Kanberra Gel should slow into what we call “Maintenance Mode”.
Will Kanberra Gel Leave a Scent?
When Kanberra Gel is working all you should smell is clean air, the way nature intended. No fragrances, no masking and no perfumes, just true fresh air. Kanberra Gel is unlike any product on the market for attacking molds, mildew, fungi and their associated odors. Instead of masking the odors with a chemical fragrance, Kanberra Gel actually neutralizes the cause of the odors, leaving the air to return to its original fresh state.
How is Kanberra Gel Packaged?
Kanberra Gel is packaged in air-tight, drip-free containers with an inner seal and a lid with holes, and comes in 1 oz, 2 oz, 4 oz, 8 oz, and 16 oz jars. The inner lid can be thrown away or reused in the event you want to store the gel. Kanberra Gel is also available in 24 oz refill pouches.
Where should I use Kanberra Gel and what sizes are best?
- Use 2 oz. containers for small areas (100 sq ft or less) such as cars, closets, bathrooms, sports bags, marine bilge, head, small cabinets, compartments, and storage of small boats up to 15 feet.
- Use 4 oz. containers for medium areas (100-200 sq ft) such as smaller RV's, small bedrooms, baby changing areas, small basements and storage areas, offices. For marine use-medium cabins, air handling units and storage of boats up to 25 feet.
- Use 8 oz. containers for larger areas (200 sq ft or larger) such as living rooms, large bedrooms, great rooms, pool houses, larger basements and storage areas, larger RV's. For marine use-larger cabins, air handling units, and the storage of boats up to 40 feet.
- Use 16 oz. containers for very large rooms, residential HVAC systems (directly in the air handler units). For maine use for storage of boats up to 60 feet
