A Quick Guide to Disinfectant Fogging

Disinfectant fogging takes ordinary cleaning to the next level. If you are considering specialty cleaning services during these uncertain times, like fogging, here’s what’s involved.

What Is disinfectant fogging?

Disinfectant fogging is the use of equipment with wide-reaching spraying capabilities to disinfect large facilities. The ULV (ultra low volume) Fogger turns a liquid antimicrobial solution into a vapor. It has a fan that spreads the vapor to the targeted areas. When the vapor is dispensed at high pressure, it forms a fog-like mist, hence the tag disinfectant fogging. This method of spraying disinfects hard-to-reach spaces and also kills airborne pathogens.

The benefits of disinfectant fogging

Exposed surfaces at home, business premises, and public facilities accumulate dust, viruses, and bacteria present in the natural environment. The germs are especially common in high contact areas such as tabletops and doorknobs that people touch most of the time. These areas are perfect for spreading germs through exposure and cross-contamination. Fogging is an effective way of disinfecting high contact areas to kill germs and reduce the risk of infection or contamination.

Every indoor space has nooks and corners and other hard-to-reach areas that rarely get cleaned through conventional cleaning methods. These tough-to-reach places collect germs that later spread to other areas and come into contact with users. Fogging technology makes it possible to disinfect hard-to-reach areas without moving heavy items. It saves the time and effort required for heavy lifting to reach far corners and nooks.

The main benefit of disinfectant fogging is that it can clean large spaces with ease. The ULV Fogger used for specialty cleaning services is powerful enough to disinfect large facilities, such as bank halls and public restrooms, in a couple of minutes. Fogging is ideal for facilities with high traffic of customers, employees, or visitors that require fast disinfection before opening or after closing.

Disinfectant fogging is very versatile and can be applied to any facility. You can use it in a hall or an office building to deep clean before using the premises. Fogging can serve as a complement to conventional cleaning, full service, or a standard measure to prevent contamination and infections.

How to prepare a space for disinfection cleaning

The solution used for disinfectant fogging is not harmful to humans or pets, but there are protocols to follow before engaging specialty cleaning services. You should:

  • Remove all easy to move objects
  • Put away food or edible items
  • Remove children and pet toys
  • Evacuate the disinfected spaces for a minimum of six hours

Disinfectant fogging is the next level of professional cleaning.
