Allergens and skin sensitivity

Insecticide products do not need to be harmful to the health and EcoSan Solutions always aim to use the most allergen free solutions which will not affect the skin – even if our client may have sensitivities or allergies to food or chemicals.

Treatments we use indoors such as high area and window treatments for Fly control over summer, or low area treatment including flooring and bedding for Flea control we always prefer water based formulations. These treatments are quite a bit more sophisticated in comparison to conventional oil based or oil in water options, but water based chemistry is lower odour, less irritating to the skin and is safer for indoor air quality.

EcoSan will not compromise our client’s indoor environments when there is a safer option available we use it.

All insecticides available to professional Pest control operators must be approved by the EPA.
