Disinfecting and cleaning of contaminants is an ongoing sanitizing regime for many businesses. There are a variety of disinfecting processes that can be implemented to regularly stay on top of areas, workspaces, and businesses that need routine decontamination and a serious reduction in germs.

These businesses often fall into the food preparation and serving businesses, pharmaceutical trades, fitness centers and gyms, hospitals, and health care facilities, as well as any other spaces that cannot be closed, like vital infrastructure facilities, or spaces that have recently been introduced to viruses or other health-related contaminants.

What is Fogging Disinfecting?

Chemical fogging disinfection is the process in which a disinfecting aerosol is introduced to a workspace to kill bacteria, viruses, and other illness-causing germs. It’s a process that will encourage chemicals onto all spaces and surfaces like tabletops and shelving, but it will also tackle hard to reach and hard to clean areas like cracks and crevices, walls, and ceilings.

Germs can reach high-level areas like lighting fixtures, and deep, tough-to-reach areas like gaps and holes in work surfaces. It’s important to eliminate the contaminants from these spaces. If they are left unclean and not disinfected, they germs can easily spread and continue to cause health problems. Disinfecting chemical fogging is a sure way to catch all the dangerous microorganisms that are hiding in these spaces.

Disinfecting chemical fogging will also kill contaminants in the air. Airborne contamination might not be thought about during a regular cleaning process, but it’s something you need to think about in highly sensitive areas.

During The Disinfecting Fogging Procedure

The fogging process for decontaminating work areas has been around for a while. But you want to make sure you turn to someone who is using modern technology. Confirm they are using stainless steel nozzles that hold up over time, and disperse the solutions safely and consistently.

Make sure the cleaning team is using a chemical process that offers a present-day cleaning solution that involves products on the CDC N-list and is safe for use around delicate areas and electronics. The solution will be sprayed in a way that won’t wet down the area, but it will saturate the space and the atmosphere with a fine mist or fog. Give the fogger about 15-30 minutes to work depending on the size of the space.

After Disinfecting Fogging

While the entire fogging disinfecting process will take a certain period of time depending on the size of your workspace, after the operation has been completed, you should be able to reenter the space within an hour. This timeline will give the solution time to do the decontaminating work and settle its way into the areas and tight spaces it needs to, to clean.

Later, as you work in the area and reintroduce contaminants and germs to the area, the process should be performed again. If you can eliminate bringing the contaminants into the work area again, it shouldn’t need fog disinfecting performed again for a while.

If your workspace is one of the areas we talked about earlier, you should include this type of germ elimination on a regular basis. Whether that is daily, weekly, or monthly, cutting down on harsh germs and dangerous contaminants will help reduce health issues and illness, loss of work, and other economic problems. It’s very important to take disinfecting your work areas seriously and not face health-related problems in the future. Plus, your clientele will appreciate the added assurance that your place of business is free of germs and that you take decontaminating these areas seriously.
