About this Product

Benefect Decon 30 is a ready-to-use (no messy mixing required) EPA registered botanical disinfectant, cleaner, bactericide, virucide, fungicide. The active ingredient (Thymol) is an extract from essential oils of the thyme plant. There are no human health warnings or precautionary statements for use or disposal - no need to rinse or wipe off after application. Personal Protective Equipment is not required.

Detailed Specifications

Benefect Decon 30 is an EPA registered bactericidal, virucidal, fungicidal, mildewstat, and carpet sanitizer. Like all Benefect products, it leverages the antimicrobial properties of Thymol in its proprietary formula. Formulated with whole essential plant oils - not synthesized copies of the chemicals found within the oils - with our unique Optimized Dynamic Chemistry (ODC) surfactant system, Decon 30 boosts cleaning performance while still achieving hospital-level disinfection. The ODC system also enhances mold killing and mildew prevention!

As a business- or home-owner you know that Benefect has been reviewed for safety, efficacy, and environmental impact by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and therefore you can trust what the label says. Naturally, Benefect's botanical ingredients made from plant extracts give it some distinct advantages.

  • EPA List N
  • Kills over 99.99% of bacteria in 30 seconds!
  • No synthetic fragrances, dyes or bleach
  • No evacuation of building occupants required
  • No rinsing or wiping required, even on food contact surfaces
  • No label warnings or precautionary statements
  • No PPE required
  • Light scent, pleasant aromatherapeutic vapors
  • Available for sale in all States

Typical disinfectants require 10 minutes contact time, which is difficult to achieve on vertical surfaces and materials. Benefect Decon 30 solves this problem by being specially formulated to kill gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria with a more realistic contact time of just 30 seconds! This makes Decon 30 ideal for fast decontamination of equipment, PPE, and even vertical surfaces like wood studs or concrete walls. Now contractors can save time and money by using Decon 30 to clean and disinfect in one easy step!

Controlling bacteria on porous surfaces, carpet, and soft contents are now possible without using synthetic chemicals. Being the first botanical sanitizer and deodorizer registered with the EPA, Decon 30 is specifically formulated for penetrating into porous carpet materials and is also WoolSafe Approved. Safely and effectively tackle more jobs with the comfort and confidence that comes from using Benefect products.

Ideal for decontamination, preventing cross-contamination, cleaning, disinfecting, and deodorizing in water damage applications.

What types of mold do Benefect disinfectants kill?

Both Benefect Botanical Disinfectant and Decon 30 kill Trichophyton Mentagrophytes which is the representative organism over the entire category of mold/fungi/yeast; ie, the hardest to kill as per the EPA. In fact this is the only test that the EPA requires to legally approve a product as a general fungicide. A fungicide is defined as ‘biocidal chemical compound or biological organism used to kill or inhibit fungi or fungal spores’.

Decon 30 is additionally effective against Candida Albicans and Aspergillus Niger (prevents mold growth).

Will Benefect disinfectants kill a specific type of mold – penicillium for example?

We have not tested against penicillium specifically but both Benefect and Decon 30 are EPA approved to kill Trichophyton Mentagrophytes, which is the hardest type of mold to kill in the category of mold/fungi/yeast. In fact both the EPA has indicated Trichophyton to be the Representative Organism over this category and only require efficacy against Trichophyton to approve a product as a general fungicide.

Do Benefect disinfectants also kill mold spores?

Yes. The testing that is required by both the EPA for a product to be approved as a fungicide includes mold spores.

Do Benefect disinfectants also kill mycotoxins?

No. Mycotoxins are a chemical byproduct of mold spores. Benefect disinfectants kill microorganisms, not chemicals byproducts. That being said, in killing and removing the mold spores you will prevent new mycotoxins from being released, and there is a natural degradation that the existing mycotoxins will go through.

Which is better to use for mold clean up – Benefect or Decon 30?

Both products kill mold the exact same way and to the same degree on hard surfaces. Decon 30 does better at additionally penetrating into porous surfaces. While we cannot guarantee or quantify to what extent that is (only because the EPA does not provide testing on porous surfaces), we know from 3rd party studies that Decon 30 is very powerful even on porous surfaces. Also Decon 30 is an EPA approved carpet sanitizer, which just further qualifies how well Decon works on porous surfaces. For these reasons we almost always recommend Decon 30 for mold jobs.

What is the best way to control mold spores in my home?

There are three things we recommend:

  1. Keep your home dry by using dehumidifiers and allow for air movement.
  2. Use a vacuum with a HEPA filter. A HEPA filter will capture particles as small as the size of mold spores so use it on any/all surfaces that you reach. Keep that HEPA filter clean and when you change or clean the filter, make sure you do it outside of your house.
  3. Spray or wipe Decon 30 on any surface/object in your home. In those places that you are more concerned may have mold, make sure you keep the surface wet for 10-minutes. You can also decontaminate your vacuum with Decon 30.

I have a contractor coming in to do a mold remediation. What should I be expecting from them?

Every mold job is a little bit different. You should first of all make sure your contractor is certified to do water damage and mold remediation. You can determine that by checking if they are IICRC or RIA certified.

The typical mold remediation project will usually follow this sequence (ref Rachel Adams, Indoor Environmental Management): 

  1. Identify and correct the source of moisture (that has caused the mold growth).
  2. Set up containment.
  3. Establish negative air.
  4. Remove contaminated building materials.
  5. Clean all surfaces.
  6. Have post remediation samples collected.

Removal of contaminated materials is one of the most important parts of mold remediation and as much as can possibly be removed, will. Various tools may be used during removal that may include:

  • Removing contaminated structural material such as cutting out dry wall.
  • HEPA vacuuming will likely happen all throughout the whole job.
  • Sanding surfaces.
  • Using a degreaser to clean/remove such as Benefect Atomic Degreaser.
  • Soda blasting or dry ice followed by HEPA vacuuming.

What is a HEPA sandwich?

This is process that is often taught in mold certification classes:  Remove – Disinfect – Remove or in other terms, HEPA Vacuum – Disinfect - HEPA Vacuum. Even though Benefect disinfectants do not need to be rinsed or removed after application, we often encourage a HEPA sandwich approach because even dead mold spores can release mycotoxins. The HEPA sandwich is a good, thorough approach especially on porous surfaces.

Can Benefect or Decon be used in my laundry to disinfect my clothing and other fabrics?

Not really. Both Benefect and Decon 30 are ready to use products, which means water has already been added. If you add either product to a load of wash you would be diluting the formula and we wouldn’t know what effectiveness it would have. Also both products are hard surface disinfectants and we have no testing to verify their efficacy on moldy fabrics specifically.

You can treat your washing machine with either of disinfectants when it is empty by simply spraying the product in and allowing it to air dry. It is good idea to keep the washing machine door open after use to allow it to dry.

People with extreme mould sensitization can sometimes need to take very extreme measures. There are number of doctors/professionals who can help. A couple that we are familiar with are:
