Author: bison

Hygiene and sanitation standards in the workplace have recently risen to new heights. As employees start returning to work, safe and sanitary workspace have become a top priority. A comprehensive fogging treatment from Bison Janitorial is one of the best ways you can disinfect your workspace, and reduce the chance of illness and absenteeism.

Though it’s been around for years, fogging has gained in popularity as a way to achieve the highest levels of disinfection and sanitation through an entire room.

In this time of heightened sanitary awareness and demand, fogging treatment is a fast, safe, and affordable way to decontaminate your space, and give peace of mind to your employees and customers.

In this article, you’ll learn why fogging is one of the most comprehensive methods for whole room disinfection.

What Is Fogging?

Fogging is the method of disinfecting a space by spraying an ultra-fine mist of disinfectant droplets through the air and onto surfaces.

Originally used to treat highly specialized areas such as hospitals and food processing plants, fogging historically used harsh and toxic chemicals; unsafe for widespread applications. But modern advancements in biotechnology have made it possible for some fogging disinfectants to be 100% organic and non-toxic.

Today’s fogging solution is completely safe for both humans and the environment. Fogging safety has driven the service into the mainstream for use as a standard cleaning method in any business or residence.

Fogging achieves whole room decontamination by it’s even and comprehensive disinfectant application reaching every corner of a room. The mist easily reaches difficult to access areas such as cracks, ceilings, cupboards, and high walls. A fogging treatment eliminates all harmful surface and airborne bacteria and viruses.

How Does Fogging Work?

Fogging uses a UVL (Ultra Low Volume) Fogger machine to convert liquid disinfectant into an ultra-fine vapor. The particles made by the fogger are so small they linger long enough to kill 99.99% of airborne bacteria and microbes in the air as well as surfaces.

Hard to reach areas are often overlooked by traditional cleaning methods but can harbor and spread viruses for long periods. Fogging treatments find and eliminate bacteria anywhere they try to hide.

Fogging is an incredibly effective disinfectant, which protects against a range of bacteria and viruses including:

• Corona Virus (COVID-19)
• Influenza
• Salmonella
• Tuberculosis
• Staphylococcus
• Listeria
• Rotavirus
• Rhinovirus
• Norovirus
• Adenovirus

What Are The Benefits Of Fogging?

Germs linger in all spaces, but especially in public and high traffic areas. Over time, all homes, offices, factories accumulate dust, viruses, and bacteria. Fogging applies disinfectant to large areas quickly and evenly, lowering the chance of germs being spread through surfaces or the air.

Some other advantages of fogging include:

Disinfecting Large Areas

Over-the-counter cleaning solutions and sprays are generally ineffective at cleaning larger areas. Cleaning wipes only disinfect easy to access surfaces, and generic spray bottle mist droplets are too large to properly disinfect the air. Fogging treatment sprays an entire room in a fraction of the time other cleaning methods take and kills 99.99% of germs.

Wide Range Of Applications

Fogging can be used in almost any commercial or residential space. Some businesses that benefit from fogging treatment include:

• Schools
• Offices
• Factories
• Homes
• Retail Outlets
• Public Transport
• Aged Care Facilities
• Hospitals
• Restaurants
• Gyms
• Community Centers
• Public Spaces
• And more…
