What is Kanberra Gel?
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). When used Kanberra Gel allows the natural antiseptic properties of the oils to become airborne through an evaporative release. Please refer to the Facts on Tea Tree Oil section for further information.
How does Kanberra Gel work?
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”. Please refer to the Usage Chart for typical size to area recommendations.
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 eliminating 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 2oz, 4oz, 8oz, 16oz, 32oz and 2.5 gallon containers. Kanberra Gel is also available in 16oz and 32oz refill pouches. The inner lid can be thrown away or reused in the event you want to store the Gel.
