This is followed by a anti-microbial surface and air quality decontamination treatment via introducing Goldmorr GM2000 or GMThermo either as a micro mist or smoke to produce a cloud throughout the internal property or similar such areas such as roof, wall and floor cavities or ducted ventilation systems. This product is scientifically tested and proven to 99.98% effectively neutralise all mould and spores with the treated areas on contact!
