    Post: Sporicidin and Bleach

    Posted by Rick Kurland on 8/26/07

    I'm in a dire situation.I had a small leak from my
    icemaker while we were on vacation and it leaked into and
    through the wall and a flood and fire repair company that
    I won't name at this time came in to clean it up and dry
    it out. After the tech cut out the wallboard at the base
    of the affected walls he sprayed a chemical into the areas
    that were damaged. My wife asked him what he sprayed and
    he said, "that he did not believe in his companies
    products and that he made his own concoction" with three
    different chemicals. Needless to say this is where the
    nightmare started. We had this done on the 6th of August
    and to make a long story short we were subjected to the
    fumes etc. for 11 days (stomach and headache problems
    etc.) before we evacuated the house which 21 days later we
    are still out of. Through the 11 days of exposure the
    owner of the "flood" repair co. came out and sprayed
    another chemical over the one the tech had created to try
    and what he said neutralize it and at this point we are
    not getting anywhere with them telling us what exactly it
    was he sprayed in addition to the original mixture. It was
    however determined that the original tech mixed sporicidin
    and bleach. He denies using three chemicals that he
    originally mixed.The owner had called me on the 11th day
    of exposure(when we moved out) and said after consulting
    with his chemist back east that his tech created a Phenol
    Based Pesticide. My concern is this, we have two known
    chemicals that were combined and now two that are unknown
    (the third missing from the original mixture) and the one
    the owner sprayed over the top.The odor that was created
    from all this was so thick that it has literally stuck to
    anyone entering the house and even after washing etc. the
    smell is still on the clothing.I demanded a hygenist come
    out to do a sampling of what we were subjected to and when
    he a arrived with his little air cylinder, mind you 18
    days after it happened he walked in and said" smells like
    regular cleaning materials to me" We know who's side he is
    on. My question is has anybody experienced the mixing of
    Sporicidin and bleach, and what could the other two
    unknown chemicals added to it have created? I have my own
    independent hygenist coming in to do hard sampling etc...
    but I'm afraid that to much time has passed eventhough the
    smell is still very strong in the house 21 days later.
    Please help with any insight I have 4 people and two dogs
    that are displaced.
