ProKure G

What PPE is needed for ProKure® G?

ProKure® G is intended for unoccupied spaces, where people and pets are not present therefore, PPE is not required. However, chlorine dioxide gas is a strong oxidizing agent and is irritating to the respiratory tract.

Does art need to be removed before the ProKure® G treatment?
