How do I apply the pads and filters?

Vm3 Zero pads should always be applied horizontally to the source of the malodour with the paper side facing down.  This allows maximum exposure of the contents of the pad to the air to bind and release moisture. The pad must always be applied in a position above the source of the odour.

Vm3 Zero pads are usually supplied with a removable adhesive backing.  The backing tape is removed and the pad is stuck onto the underside of the horizontal surface above the source of the malodour.

For situations where the use of adhesive tape is not appropriate, pad mounting units are available.  Pads are placed in these units are with the paper side facing downwards. These come in three versions:

  • Ceiling mount with lockable doors for use in public places.
  • Ceiling mount with no door
  • Wall mount


How often do I need to replace the pad?

These devices work for extended periods and can be effective for weeks depending on the situation, load, temperature and its daily variation and humidity.

Standard pads are effective across many situations but the degree of effectiveness and lifespan is determined by the factors outlined above.  For example, in applications where the amount of “malodour load” on the pad is very high,  the pads will usually last for up to a week. Where the load is low, the pads may last for a month or more. In circumstances of extremely heavy “malodour load” a stronger pad can be necessary.
