Using a fogger in a garage

Can I use a fogger in a garage:

Instruction says do not use it in anywhere indoor with anything flammable. My garage has chemicals (paint remover, thinner, denatured alcohol, shellac, pool acid, fiberglass insulation...all flammable) and it has a electric water heater.

I can move all those out of the way before I fog, but is it necessary?

or when they say flammable, they mean like a pilot light type situation?

The instructions are referencing anything with an open flame or sparking device such as a pilot light.I would also turn off any lights,turn off any major appliances or machinery etc. and be sure there are no exposed electrical connections such as open or uncovered electrical boxes.Sometimes people don't finish things off in garages and sheds etc so you'd want to be sure that wasn't the case.

Otherwise follow the instructions and you should be fine.The web site you posted has those instructions as does the package and fogger itself.

The carrier in foggers is simply deodorized kerosene

It won't ignite when exposed to other canned chemicals

Just make sure there are no open flames and don't go over the recommended rates
