What Can a Fogging Machine do?

Fogging machines are a powerful and versatile method to eliminate any kind of sanitisation problem including those pesky, sputnik-shaped Corona particles that can’t be seen with the naked eye. Not only will they get rid of COVID-19 but they also have the added benefit of being able to destroy pests, mould spores and other unwanted health hazards leaving everywhere squeaky clean, germ and virus free. These amazing pieces of equipment can be used inside and out; over an entire room or specific area for general deep cleaning, disinfection and deodorisation in order to achieve full sanitisation. It’s no wonder they are the go-to piece of machinery in an array of industries where germ control and meeting new government safety standards are the order of the day, 7 days a week.

How Does a Fogger Work?

The machine works by using pressure to release a fine mist of anti-bacterial and disinfecting chemicals onto hard surfaces and soft furnishings but also into the air to control dangerous diseases at the same time. Most importantly they can be used with an antiviral disinfectant to kill pathogenic viruses making them effective weapons in our fight against COVID-19.

Fogging disinfection is a method to help eradicate infectious diseases; it is a fast, safe and thorough process. When using the correct antiviral disinfectant for fogging machines, 99.9% of all bacteria can be killed. It is recommended to use Viro Kill, an amphoteric terminal disinfectant.  See our antiviral disinfectant - Viro Kill.

The fogger produces micro-droplets of disinfectant (Viro Kill) and biocides that float in the air for around 10 minutes after application. Dispersing these micro-droplets into the air means the solution can reach areas that could not otherwise be reached by conventional cleaning methods. Studies show when you use a fogger machine for disinfecting, it significantly reduces the number of viable infectious pathogens by treating the surfaces and the air. It is a quick, clean process and does not require the removal of any items.

Under typical conditions, fogging is carried out for a minimum of 15–30min to enable the fog to disperse and the chemical action to occur. After fogging, an additional period of 45–60min is required to allow the droplets to settle out of the air and onto the surfaces. Electrostatic charging of chemical fogs during aerosolisation can improve the application as the droplets will be attracted to surfaces that are electrically charged.
