F10 SC disinfectant.
With the wet conditions that Townsville has been experiencing and the shortage of cleaning products (some of which are not suitable for houses with pets) Bohle vet surgery in Deeragun is recommending using F10 disinfectant as an alternative for cleaning mould affected houses.
F10Sc v Mould. The best process to kill the mould is to ensure that surfaces have been well cleaned and no physical mould can be seen, then apply the F10SC at a dilution of 1:250 (4ml per litre) and leave to dry.
F10SC is a total spectrum disinfectant that, unlike other strong disinfectants on the market, is safe for people and animals and has no adverse side effects on equipment and surfaces when used at recommended dilution rates. It is ecologically friendly and biodegradable, and carries a wide range of registrations and approvals from around the world. In Australia, F10SC is registered by the APVMA for use in animal production and housing facilities and is approved by DAFF for use in food export processing as a non-rinse disinfectant. It is also listed as a hospital grade disinfectant on the TGA's ARTG.

F10SC is safe to use with animals present, contact on wet F10 surfaces, or from fogging with F10SC will not cause any issues at correct dilutions. Animals should not be exposed to neat F10 as this can cause skin and eye irritation.
Care should be taken with amphibians (frogs and toads) and fish though - these should not be exposed to normal dilutions of F10SC
Some disinfectants such as F10 diluted to 1 in 250ml can be effective against mould and bacteria and are very safe. If you are interested in purchasing F10 please ring Bohle Vet surgery on 4751 6677.
