EPAUniquely safe and environmentally friendly

Official tests and assessments have shown that the aerosol produced by the DSPA is uniquely safe, non-toxic, non-corrosive, non-conductive and environmentally friendly. DSPA systems do not deplete the oxygen content nor does it affect CO or CO2 levels in any harmful way for humans or animals. In 2012 DSPA Aerosol was reviewed on the basis of ozone depletion potential, global warming potential, toxicity, flammability, and exposure potential which resulted in official SNAP listing by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
