ULV Disinfectant Fogging

ULV Disinfectant Fogging

There are 3 types of disinfecting practices;

Cleaning – Low-risk surfaces, such as floors and windows that are less likely to spread pathogens from contact with the surface. Simply removes dirt and dust.

Sanitise – Often for food contact surfaces to stop food being contaminated. Sanitisers often do not make antiviral claims as they are to reduce not kill.

Disinfect – For frequently touched surfaces which are breeding grounds for germs, bacteria and viruses. The disinfectant aims to kill the microscopic organisms which could affect your health.

There are 3 levels of disinfectants;

Low-level – Kills almost all vegative bacteria, viruses and fungi. However, it does not kill bacteria spores

High-level – Same effect as low-level, but has the potential to kill bacteria spores if used in high concentration and suitable conditions.

Hospital Grade-able – To eliminate most infections and diseases-causing bacteria, viruses and fungi. This includes destroying, bacteria spores.

With Coronavirus we use disinfectant products which have demonstrated viricidal activity relevant to enveloped viruses which includes Coronavirus. Coronaviruses are enveloped viruses with a positive-sense single-stranded RNA genome.

The products have been tested against Adenovirus and Murine norovirus in accordance with EN14476, the European standard for demonstrating viricidal activity of a disinfectant, against the enveloped Vaccinia viruses such as Coronavirus.

It is the most developed of the ionic silver stabilised hydrogen peroxides (S.S.H.Ps) and has excellent long-term stability
