    Q
    Anything Reusable?
    Is the mask reusable or one time only use? (can it be used several days in a row then discarded or just once, on one day and trashed? How about the coveralls? Must they be discarded after one use? if not, do they need to be cleaned or stored in a special way? What if you are using them one time But over several days (not storing long term)? Are the goggles reusable? Thanks!!
    A
    It will really depend on what chemicals you are using. If for instance you are using the Basic Safety Kit something that absolutely cannot come in contact with your skin, then you would need to dispose of the equipment after each use. In other cases you could reuse the equipment several times. Special cleaning and storage is not needed.

    Q
    Can I get a smaller size overall?
    I am 5' 4, 110lbs, your safety suit would fall off me. Do you sell them smaller?
    A
    Unfortunately we do not carry these items in a small size, although we may look into it in the future.  Most of our customers just roll up the sleeves and legs or safety pin them to fit their size.  We apologize for the inconvenience.

    Q
    Please explain the sizing of this safety kit. How big is XL? I'm 6' 1" and 215 lbs. Do I need the XL size?
    A

    The Basic Safety Kit does include the Tyvek Coveralls. If you are 6'1 and 215lbs you will need to get an XL.

    Available in 3 sizes:

    If there is any doubt about whether a certain size will fit you, you should always elect to go to the next size up. It is better that the Tyvek Coveralls be a bit loose than too snug.

    LARGE will fit up to:

    Height of 5'10"

    Weight of 200 lb

    XLARGE will fit up to:

    Height of 6'2"

    Weight of 220 lbs

    XXL will fit up to:

    Height of 6'4"

    Weight of 240 lbs

    Q
    Can I reuse the Basic Safety Kit after using Suspend and Talstar pesticides?
    Can we rewash this kit with the above pesticides, or should we discard each time?
    A

    If you are just doing basic spraying around your home, then you should be able to get several uses out of the items in the Basic Safety Kit. The goggles, in particular, can be easily washed and reused. We would not recommend reusing the Tyvek coveralls or gloves if you are using any hazardous materials such as mold remediation products or very harsh cleaning materials.

    Q
    How do you clean up bat droppings in the attic after using bat-a-way?
    Can I use the basic safety kit for cleaning up the attic?
    A
    Yes, we would recommend using our safety kit because bat droppings can contain certain elements that you would not want to breathe into your lungs.  There is no secret to removing bat droppings; a putty knife to chip away at the droppings and a bucket is the usual items to use.

    Q
    Is the mask in the Basic Safety Kit suitable for spraying pesticides and herbicides or should I get a respirator??
    A

    The mask in the Basic Safety Kit should be sufficient for most pesticides and herbicides.  Make sure when you're applying any product, it's being applied on a day with little to no wind.  Always check the label of any product you use for any specific additional precautions they may list.

    Q
    What kind of protective equipment is recommended during an application?
    A

    We suggest the applicator to wear shirt, shoes, socks, pants and chemical resistent gloves. If applying in a non-ventilated area, you will need to wear a respiratory mask. You may look at our Basic Safety Kit for the necessary protective gear.
