Behind The Scenes: The Science behind Fogging to Fight COVID-19

Infection Control cleaning is a new method being adopted by Extra Care facilities, offices and social housing providers across the North hiring us to remove, kill and prevent the things we can’t see, like the coronavirus, from doing more harm.

Fogging Sanitisation is a fast, effective and non-invasive and professional cleaning service that our clients rely on. It’s also one way we’re fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, as more companies require deep cleans to open and maintain a clean and safe workspace for their staff in the coming weeks and months.

Fogging is an ideal solution for combating airborne pathogens and disinfecting large areas that require rapid re-entry of treated areas and minimum disruption like social housing, Extra Care facilities and office space.

It’s important to get rid of germs that lie on the surfaces we can see, but vital to target areas which could be missed or hard to reach, such as underneath tables or spaces between cupboards. This leads to hotspots, where a large volume of bacteria can gather and remain harmful. Using specialist equipment fogging kills germs where they lie and prevents them being transferred from one place to another (known as cross contamination) due to its automated process. With fogging, there are no places for the germs to hide.

 

What’s involved?

  • After a thorough clean, our fogging operatives fill each room with a fine mist of 10-micron particles. As the particles settle onto all the surfaces, a powerful sterilising agent kicks into action killing bacteria, spores and viruses fast.
  • Our fogging machines generate extremely small droplets of specialist disinfectant which settle underneath, on top of and on the sides of objects, soft furnishings, furniture, and hard to reach areas. This efficient process significantly reduces pathogens when compared to manual surface cleaning resulting in a cleaner and safer environment.
  • Our team cover all surfaces within a confined area including crockery, items in kitchens, desk spaces and items on desks in offices and communal area hotspots like light switches and door handles.
  • Electrostatic disinfecting is a way of quickly and evenly coating a surface with a disinfecting This is done by using an electrostatic applicator that gives a negative charge to the disinfecting solution as it exits the nozzle.
