Fogging produces micro-droplets of disinfectant and biocides that float in the air for around 10 minutes after application.

Dispersing these micro-droplets into the air means the solution is able to reach areas that could not otherwise be reached by conventional cleaning methods.

Studies show application by aerosol significantly reduces the number of viable infectious pathogens, treating the surface and the air, when compared to manual surface cleaning alone.

Physical symptoms of being ill can often lead to increased distribution of pathogens, with a highly contagious case like norovirus, speed is of the essence, rapid ULV fogging and disinfection can quickly break the chain and combat infection outbreak landing on surfaces and hard to reach places which can lead to further spreading of viruses 🦠 

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
