Frequently Asked Questions

What is Kanberra Gel?

Kanberra Gel is an all-natural, proprietary blend of Tea Tree Oils and other essential oils. When used Kanberra Gel allows the natural antiseptic properties of the oils to become airborne through an evaporative release. Please refer to the Facts on Tea Tree Oil section for further information.

 

How does Kanberra Gel work?

At the micro-biotic level, the air itself absorbs the pharmaceutical grade oils. As the air circulates and lands on the source (the mold, mildew, etc.), Kanberra Gel begins neutralizing and eliminating problems, and associated odors, on contact. It does so naturally, with no chemicals. Most importantly, the use of Kanberra Gel acts as a preventive program against these problems for up to 45 days after there is no longer Gel in the container.

 

Why are Kanberra Products superior to competitive air purifiers and cleaners?

Kanberra Gel®, Kanberra Spray® and Kanberra Wipes® are certified by the Australian Tea Tree Industry Association (ATTIA) verifying the products are made with Pure Australian Tea Tree Oil (PATTO). ATTIA is the Australian government approved industry body supporting the tea tree oil industry to enhance the production and uses of TTO. Kanberra products were the first water-based, alcohol-free air purifiers and surface cleaners to use PATTO and we continue to utilize that standard for all of our products. The certification means Kanberra is officially sanctioned as containing pure Australian TTO.

 

Why is ATTIA certification important?

The ATTIA has reported a growing number of products are using adulterated TTO – sometimes called synthetic or nature identical – and promoting it as pure. Such products use a mix of unknown chemicals from unidentified sources. Most often, no safety or efficacy testing is done on these mixtures. You can purchase Kanberra products in confidence knowing that you are receiving an all natural product with the finest ingredients including PATTO.

 

How Should I Place the Container?

The beauty of Kanberra Gel is that it can be placed anywhere, as long as you have a flat surface. If you are a new user of the product it is recommended you follow our usage modes with their approximate application times:

Shock Mode (2-3 days) – Uncap the product and place it open without the diffuser lid.
Maintenance Mode (up to 30 days) – Place the diffuser lid on the container to slow overall evaporation.
Protection Mode (30 to 90 days) – The application area is effectively ‘clean’ and the product will now provide airborne protection against any re-growth.

 

How Long Does Kanberra Gel work?

The dissipation rate for Kanberra Gel will vary by conditions. In typical applications, the Gel will take anywhere from 3 to 8 weeks to completely evaporate however it will have a residual effect for up to 45 days. After this time it is recommended to replace the Kanberra Gel in order for it continually to offer protection. Various conditions will affect the dissipation rate. For example, if the Kanberra Gel is placed under a fan, the rate of evaporation will increase due to the increased air flow. In areas of heavy particulates, like cigarette smoke, heavy molds or around pets, Kanberra Gel may evaporate faster. Once the original particulates are addressed, the dissipation of Kanberra Gel should slow into what we call “Maintenance Mode”. Please refer to the Usage Chart for typical size to area recommendations.

 

Will Kanberra Products Leave a Scent?

When Kanberra products are working all you should smell is clean air, the way Nature intended. No fragrances, no masking and no perfumes, just true fresh air. Kanberra products are unlike anything on the market for attacking mold, mildew, fungi and their associated odors. Instead of masking the odors with a chemical fragrance, Kanberra products actually reduces the cause of the odors, leaving the air to return to its original fresh state.
