    Hi, I'm in the process of cleaning up cimexa after treatment.
    First, may I ask which should be the optimal tool/procedure for the job:
    1) Sweep the floor by broom
    2) Vaccum cleaner: should i do it immediately, or use it after sweeping the floor
    3) Air purifier: it is suggested here, but the link to the product died. I'm not sure how it works.

    On top of that, I also want to use air purifier after cleaning up. Should I use charcoal bag, socket purifier, water based purifier, or full fledged purifier?

    I would wet mop then dry mop. A broom will just make it airborne again, a vacuum can be damaged and/or blow the dust out the exhaust port, no clue on the air purifier.

    Would wet mop make the dust clump together?

    Hi,

    The link may be broken but oddly enough Google still works.

    Cimexa is not DE, they have different physical properties.

    Cimexa is not legal in the EU.

    I have no reason to know how to clean it up and no desire to break the law to find that out.

    I would suggest you ask the manufacturers and advise they amend the fact there is no guidance about it on their website or product.

    At the bottom of each of my posts in the sig line is the request not to be messaged via PM, sorry you did not think that applied to you, it does. I am actually allowed to take a little time off from the forum and the constant "help me, help me". I hope you appreciate I am not paid to be here and equally you don't pay to have a right to an answer.
